EPISODE REVIEW - PENDING
In the meantime, SERIES 4 (and SERIES 3) is becoming convoluted clap-trap, with the production team of talented writers, script editors, producers and directors delivering less "magic" (that sparkled throughout the definitive SERIES 1 and partly across SERIES 2 that a focus has been lost on the essence of what DOCTOR WHO is (and was up until Patrick Troughton's THE WAR GAMES or, perhaps, Tom Baker's THE DEADLY ASSASSIN).
The DNA template of the drama has been bastardised so much in the last two series that it seems that the production staff want to dip their hands into the "possibilities candy jar" before they leave for new jobs. And what they are mixing up is just messy, unfocussed fan-mutal-pleasure. There is another phrase for that but I'll refrain as eyeofhorus.org.uk is a "family-orientated" site.
THE DOCTOR'S DAUGHTER is a joke. Dedicated to the memory of John Nathan-Turner? What were they thinking of. Must, and will, do better.
And the UNIT label on the crate? What's that about?
And as for the "resurrection" of Jenny (should have been "Genny"); please, no, not another spin-off.
One good thing, David Tennant continues to be stunning as does Catherine Tate. An on-screen partnership that is rapidly nibbling on the heels of that CLASSIC SERIES team of Baker & Sladen for being stylishly iconic.
