RTD's take on Sliding Doors gave us Donna's big story in Series 4. What did you think of it?

The good was balanced by some bad, the creature was dissapointing but the way that things went with no doctor was very interesting indeed. 4/5

5 from me - even with the big rubber beetle. Love Donna, and the big BAD Wolf everywhere at the end was a punch the air moment.

5/5 for me. Yep, fake-looking giant bug included. Great performances from the cast here. Special kudos for Catherine and Bernard, who were fantastic. Loved the music too.

I loved Turn Left, too. The aspect of seeing how the last two and a bit years, since we first met Donna, could have gone differently without the Doctor made for quite compelling viewing.

As for the dodgy insect, it would have worked if all we'd gotten of it were cheeky glimpses. Once the Doctor was examining it- dead- at the end of the episode, the illusion sort of fell apart. But it wasn't a deal breaker for me on the enjoyment of the story.

I'll give this a 5 as well.

Why did it have to be bloody Rose? Her story finished with Doomsday, bringing her back was just gratuitous crowd pleasing.

I beg to differ, Cat. Her story was left unrequited in Doomsday. It wasn't finished.

agreed. you can get away with glaring loose ends like that in real life - cos real life is messy and full of unresolved - unrequited stories that never get any kind of satisfactory ending or closure.
but in fiction - specially when a much-loved character like Rose is concerned (and me and all my mates adored Rose.) you don't just leave that kind of massive thread hanging. The story did need to be ended. we would have felt cheated if it hadn't been.

I don't rate this as a pinnacle episode so have given it a 4. No doubt about CT's brilliant performance though, and Murray Gold produced a wonderful score as well.

And that's what made the conclusion to Doomsday unique and wonderful. So rare in television for unrequited love to remain unrequited...

Indubitably. I still get misty eyed when I think about that ending. So sad. But that the same time so perfect.
