Planet of the Ood

Good, but slightly disappointing, in my opinion. That is to say, yes, i was entertained, it could keep my attention, and I love the fact that they went back and gave the Ood more depth (I was interested in the Ood previously, because their name is slightly entertaining). But it didn't live up to what I was expecting. That's what happens when you produce an outstanding show: REALLY high expectations! It coulda been better, just sayin...

How exactly could it have been better? You provide no reasons as to why you liked or disliked this episode aside from the fact that you are interested in the Ood.
Something that I am enjoying about these past few episodes is how Donna keeps challenging the Doctor. She asks questions that he doesn't want asked. She gets involved emotionally, while the Doctor still isn't able to allow himself to get too close to anyone or anything during his travels.
Back when I saw the 'Bride' christmas special, I never would have thought that Donna's character would be so warm, caring and full of emotion. I think that she is adding something great to the show. It is definitely a very different feel from the previous companions - but I think it's pretty nice to see.
I was also glad to see some of the Ood back story explained.

Changing that guy into an ood in a blink of an eye .... would be nice'er if he would have been a hybrid (imo)verry good episode, although i liked the pompeii better. (sometimes, classic fire arms in the future bug me, but the alternative (lasers) would be just lame, so i forgive them.

I think Donna is fantastic, and I don't know, I can't quite explain why i didn't like the episode as much. I think that it is because I was so moved by Pompeii, I was so impressed, that after it, nothing could compare, you know? Besides that, I was finding it slightly (only SLIGHTLY) dull... I was having problems paying attention and I haven't had that problem since David Tennant became the Doctor. You know what else? I have a deep deep attachment to David Tennant, I think it's love. And the innuendos that this is his last season are unnerving. I really don't want him to go! So I think maybe i was a little hard on the episode. What I think i will do is go back and watch The Satan Pit, and then re-watch the episode, and then see what I think of it the second time around.
