Well, that did have some TBO, but it was better than I feared it might be.

Good things:
- The Hand
- Ha! Try exterminating Captain Jack and see what happens!
- Captain Cheesecake / Beefcake / "that's enough hugging"
- Daleks speaking German! Near Nuremberg!
- Jackie Tyler, not qualified to drive a TARDIS

Bad things:
- So farewell then, Harriet Jones
- The Osterhagen Key, somewhat implausible
- Rose built all that technology to get across the parallel universes so she could get all wuvvy with the Doctor again
- Wiping Donna's memory

Thing's I'm not sure about:
- Two (and a bit) Doctors
- No Big Reset Button then? Everyone remembers the planets and the darkness?

I wouldn't be surprised if we see Wilf again. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if we see Donna again at some point in the future, though that will take a bit more explaining.

Oh, I do hope you're right about Wilf. And, indeed, there's plenty of potential for Donna to pop back up in the future - and maybe even for her lost memories to turn out to be hidden in that ring (a bit like the gem in The Unicorn And The Wasp).

And yes, what a pity about Harriet Jones. Though it's nice that her actions in this episode mean that she could now justly be called the 'architect of Britain's Golden Age', since she played such a major role in ensuring that Britain still exists! I hope she gets some respectful references in future episodes, because she deserves to be remembered.

Yes, the ring was conspicuous right to the end. I wonder if it was always intended as a red herring - for this season at least.

Well there's certainly enough capital to play with there in future episodes.
