You've always got a chance with a gloater
Well, I thought that was the worst episode of the season so far. I did like the irony about electing a dumb-ass - no doubt something that will sail over many of our American cousins when it gets to the US. And, you know, they say the Evil One eats babies. But overall, it didn't do much for me. Then again, the Master often doesn't come over well - Claws of Axos, need I say more? Of course, I'm sure - somehow - it will all get worked out next week. The Doctor will manage to save the world, whilst somehow leaving Jack behind to handle another series of Torchwood. At least it isn't Daleks again in the final episode. Or maybe it will turn out that it is. Just remember, that rhythym from Beethoven's Fifth is Morse code for V (=victory), right?

Right! But whose victory? I'm so glad soeone has said that at last - so many people have talked about heartbeats and other things - I was beginning to think that my age was showing!

Thank Christ for that. I thought I was the only man in fandom who hated it tonight :( And the last few were SO good...

Yes, and I was just thinking there hadn't been any turkeys this season. Oh well ... let's hope the final episode is better.

It was quite a bitty episode, but I suspect that part of the reason I liked it so much was that I was fearing the worst. I may have been a little giddy with relief that what came out of the rift proved to be neither Daleks nor Cybermen...

Yes, that is a relief. Though I suppose the Master teaming up with Daleks would be blatantly inconsistent with the Time War. Though I do wonder what (if anything) is inside those pods ...

Pretty pants episode. I sat there feeling distinctly unimpressed. RTD just doesnt write as well as the others.

And a flying aircraft carrier. Jerry Anderson must be feeling a bit peeved.

(I was half waiting for the Mysterons to appear...)
