Damn Russell T Davies. Just when I think I’ve got him all worked out and he’s basically rubbish, he comes out with an episode like Doomsday.
Even the final sequence, which could have been horribly sentimental, seemed right. Yes, a little bit overblown, but in context appropriately so, and the shot of the Doctor with tears running down his face… I’m sure I wasn’t the only one sobbing quietly to myself.
As for the story itself (and there was one – an excellent development which I hope will be carried on in the next series) – well, I nearly got it right.
