    [Quote  by:  mad4plaid] hmmm.... I think I had my adult hat on while I watched these. It's not that I didn't enjoy them on the surfact I just got stuck on the crutch of the sonic lipstick saving the day (and SJS brandishing it like someone would have in a bad 70s exploitation flick or the Charlie's Angels TV show... ugh!).

    I did like how all three kids helped get to the answer - especially how Clyde came up with the vinegar answer, very good sharing of the wealth.

    Oh, and I can see that I'll be quite ready to hurt Maria's mom real soon (all about me, indeed!)

    Finally watch these two episodes - and for Kids Tv I think they are good.

    'I just got stuck on the crutch of the sonic lipstick saving the day (and SJS brandishing it like someone would have in a bad 70s exploitation flick or the Charlie's Angels TV show... ugh!).'

    I agree with that.

    But overall it was a good start to the series.

    Cheers, daveac

    Well I still love the girl, Maria. She's ideal for television. Charismatic, doesn't muffle her speech, a great little actress. Luke is also quite good. He carries off the not-quite-human character pretty well for a kid actor. Clyde's an incredible improvement over Kelsey (who talked like she had marshmallows in her mouth and was incredibly hard to understand).

    Yes, it's for kids, but it's not bad. Fairly simplistic stories so far, but then compared to most of the last three seasons of Who, "Rose" was a bit simplistic, yet we (most of us) loved it anyway.

    I also have the benefit of seeing it through my daughter's eyes, and she's loving it. When I told her I had the episodes, she jumped on me and hugged me, and she's not as small as she used to be. She was stoked!

    And we watched them together, and she was quite excited. I think the show knows its audience, and is treating it to quite the treat.


    One solid hope is worth a cartload of uncertainties.

    I've not yet seen episode 2 so I've not read through the whole thread (avoiding potential spoilers).

    I've got so much time for everything to do with modern era Doctor Who and the things RTD & co have brought to the party; all that said - & maybe I'm just getting older & more miserable - the gas problem from which the Slitheen suffer is pathetic. That's the only way I can describe it. It was pathetic in series 1 and just as bad in this episode. I suppose it's possible (likely even) that this toilet humour appeals to kids, and that's why this show kicked off with this particular adventure.

    Other than that, I thought this was really good. I like good quality childrens drama with monsters (already mentioned reservations aside).

    My first ever crush was Sarah Jane and I still melt all these years later.

    I think this will be a really good spin-off.

    Nothing dies of old age on Skaro!
