You're really not sure where things atre going for the first 20 minutes. However what transpires is brilliant, culminating in possibly the finest 5 minutes of Who ever. And the "Rose I'm coming to get you" speech is a piece of genius from RTD.

So a shoehorn 5/5 from me. Smile

I have to confess, upon first viewing, I also found the first twenty minutes or so a bit unsure of itself. The thought that we were revisiting the scene of "The Long Game" certainly didn't inspire confidence. But if you stay with it, the story unfolds in a pretty solid way.

You actually get a clue to who the 'real' nemesis is in the form of the Anne-droid, and the two "What Not To Wear" droids who defabricate Jack. But the actual reveal at the end gives us one of Chris Eccleston's finest moments of the series. I give this a 4/5

3/5: it's going to date horribly. But that's the danger of putting in as many pop culture references as humanly possible.

It's still a good bit of telly, and as said above Eccleston is marvellous.

4/5. An uneven start but a hell of a finish. The "I'm coming to get you" speech was not only a great scene in and of itself but it really felt like The Doctor was fully remembering what he was capable of after a period of still being walking wounded. Brilliant ending.
