So what did you all think? Enjoy it? I certainly did! :-)

An 8/10, I think. I was ever so glad to see that the Doctor finally got an Alonso, though!

To be honest, I was a bit drunk at the time and will form a sensible opinion upon the re-watch.

David Tennant was gorgeous, Kylie was gorgeous. The episode was good, not the best but still... good!

The new theme music? Bleeurgh!
Mr Bucket (Hyasinth's bloke, the conman/'I've a first in eathonomics) not becoming a companion? Bleeurgh!

I otherwise quite enjoyed it though. On seeing the baddie wheel out on a wheelchair, all I could think of was "No...!"

It wasn't 'him' though, so we're okay for now.

It was a neat episode, but not a fantastic one. I'd go for a round 5 or 6/10.

Yeah, I was waiting for a proper baddie.

I need to hear the music again but it seemed to have more of the effects from the original tune.

It does rather seem that the doctor's companion *must* be young, female and pretty.

I loved the bit when the old guy asked if he could come along and the doctor refused him when only ten minutes ago he had plans to run off with Kylie ;-)

But did anyone wish that she could come along when she said she had no family? It would be great - an entire series without trips to visit the annoying relatives every couple of episodes :-P

The music was less orchestral and more rock-influenced, I felt, and still not nearly as satisfactorily otherworldly as the older versions.
