Dear Mr Lane,
I enjoyed reading your review re Doctor Who - Planet of the Dead. I am very happy to see your love for science fiction, mainly Doctor Who. Personally I think the episode was brilliant. Yes, the fly people indeed looked like they had an accident with an janitor in a tunnel, but try and look beyond the quotes, acting and landscapes. If you would be the doctor, ending up on an alien planet (with all that knowledge inside you + say 900 years of life), would you not see the planet as a "quid in your old jeans"? Don't get me wrong, I am not telling you off, just sharing my opinion. See the bigger picture. Imagine you ending up on a desert planet, with billions of creatures coming towards you, wanting to eat up you and the world. Stuck in a bus in the middle of nowhere.
Anyway, even when the episode is slightly on the rubbishy side, the story is put together well and has a lot of "scope for the imagination". Hopefully the next special will be better!

Btw, if you have not written the Babylon File (I don't know the work/book/etc), I wonder if you do write (fiction). It would suit you (your piece is well written).
