    Doctor Who: Podshock - Episode 62
    Authored by: Doctor Whoovie on Tuesday, January 16 2007 @ 06:38 PM EST
    I think I go with Louis, Ken and Mike on their Runaway Bride review. The Empress just looks like someone in a rubber suit (in good Doctor Who Tradition). I particularly didn't like the fact that her false "spider" eyes, looked too different from her two "human" ones. Even though they blinked in unison with Sarah Parrish's eyes they seemed very false. If they had more physical resemblence to Sarah's actual eyes, I think the whole effect/costume would have come together somewhat better.

    Catherine Tate was fantastic (likable and sympathetic, yet annoying simultaneously). I must admit I loved the whole TARDIS chase on the M4 (M for "motorway", not "freeway" - doesn't anyone speak "English" these days? ;-) ). I also enjoyed the play back to the Christmas Invasion with the Santas and the Christmas Trees. Though I thought that last year's "whirling Dervish" Christmas tree was much more effective (and much funnier). For the record, I didn't think that the Sycorax were much of an enemy last year either, just men if rubbishy masks.

    I did like the spaceship appearing as the Star of Bethlehem, nice seasonal touch. Mind you - the heathen Army blew it up! The brigadier must be alive and well; he always wanted to bomb the aliens.


    Next year, they should do a time travel episode, set just over two thousand years ago. Where the Doctor and Martha stop three pilot fish (dressed as Kings) from sucking the latent energies out of a baby in a manger. The scavengers are acting on orders from a fifth member of the Cult of Skaro, Dalek Herod. Title: "How the Daleks stole Christmas".
