Oh dear, what a waste of 45 minutes!
Predictable plot (shades of 'Inferno'), cardboard cutout characters and just no TENSION whatsoever! It felt like I was watching 'Who By Numbers'.
Also another story where the Doctor has severely underestimated his foe...a plot device which is incredibly tired now, surely?
It's been a good run since the abysmal 'Water of Mars' so I shouldn't be to disappointed at this dismal episode...we need the poor ones to make the good ones look that so much better!
Look forward to hearing your comments!

Welcome to the ORIGINAL This Week In Doctor Who. All the known broadcasts of Doctor Who covered weekly since 1998. With the spinoffs too.
If you listened to our interviews with Sarah Douglas in Doctor Who: Podshock 189 and MyAnna Buring in Doctor Who: Podshock 200, you know that both are appearing in the movie, Witchville premiering on Syfy tomorrow night, the 22nd of May 2010 (9/8c).
You may also remember that our very own Doctor Who: Podshock Correspondent, Amy Krell had a hand in the production as a producer, so we urge you to watch or set your DVR for it.
You can see a preview for it here: 'Witchville' Premieres May 22nd - See a Sneak Preview Now (video).
So now all the Tiltes for the second part of Season 5/1/31/Fnarg have been revealed including the missing Episode 13 title.
If you don't want to be Spoiled then look away, but these are ONLY the TITLES and NO PLOT lines or Story arcs will be revealed here only to say the first two titles are common knowledge.
Ian Bisset, Host
Ian Bisset was born and raised in Lower Hutt, New Zealand and until 1988 was a Doctor Who watcher rater than a fan, it took the acting prowess of Colin Baker to start the young man off in his journey to becoming a Doctor Who fan!
By 1991, Ian was established in the Wellington Chapter of the New Zealand Doctor Who Fan Club and attended his first Doctor Who convention (it was one day with no guests an it was held in a school hall). By 1992, Ian was instrumental in organizing DoctorCon 2,
Yet another guest-less convention, but one that got the attention of the New Zealand media due to a typo.
