    "He will knock four times"?

    The Master?

    In Steven Taylor's body?

    Awwwww! I LOVE Doctor Who! That was great!

    Flying buses! Stunning locations! UNIT! Lee Evans acting! Fun!

    The Waters of Mars looks cool too... perhaps it features the Melt Warriors?

    What was the cloister bell all about though? How are the Ice Warriors going to cause the TARDIS's imminent destruction?

    That was very enjoyable indeed. Great story, full of great characters including Lee Evans who I wasn't sure was going to be good- the Welsh accent was unexpected and made the character.

    I just really enjoyed it- it was good Doctor Who.

    And it looked marvellous in HD!

    I heart Michelle Ryan.
    Dennis, Francois, Melba and Smasher are competing to see who can wine and dine Lola Whitecastle and win the contract to write her memoirs. Can Dennis learn how to be charming? Can Francois concentrate on anything else when food is on the table? Will Smasher keep his temper under control?

    If only the 28th century didn't keep popping up to get in Dennis's way...

    I thought that was bloody good! Loved Lee Evans, loved the flying bus, loved the visuals, loved the "Giant Robot" nod Oh, and the next episode looks excellent! I know the Ood are back for that, not sure about Ice Warriors.

    Kayleigh says "it was quite good". That's excellent for her

    It was the best special yet, by far. Visually impressive, Ryan was excellent and above all, it was an original, inventive, feel-good plot. Very good indeed.

    I thought it was great, the flying bus, the cgi was great and the warning made me want more. The only down side was Lee Evans, he just over acted a bit.

    The trailer for TWOM somehow reminded me of the Waterhive from The Feast of the Drowned.

    Make of that what you will.

    It's brilliant that the next one looks all-original (and not set on Earth) as well. Bring it on!

    That was good!

    Some great bits and some not so great, but why do we need snogging AGAIN...?

    It's getting a bit tedious now isn't it? Still, I suppose it was only a few seconds.

    The flying bus was great!

    I thought that, but I was really pleased with the Doctor's reaction, so many people have travelled with him and been hurt that he's travelling alone for a while. It also means that this story could happen anywhere within this incarnation's lifespan and gives us room to slip in plenty of stories

    I'm soooooo glad he freed Christina at the end. She was clearly presented as a 'goodie' despite being a thief, and the Doctor was coming over as a really rotten git, what with getting in a mood and not having her as a companion AND letting her get locked up. It was the right ending.

    It was very enjoyable but I think it would have been more enjoyable if it had been Patrick and Yoldande from "EastEnders" playing Lou and the psychic woman.

    I thought we were going to get a special that didn't have seasonal trappings, but then I remembered "Oh Christ! It's Easter..."
    Couldn't get into Michelle Ryan or Lee Evans "wacky scientist".
    Also thought the Tritovores were written out too easily.
    Despite that, a very solid 8!
