Doctor Who: 'Planet of the Ood' (S4E3)

Poor Ood. They have a hard time of it.

So we're back to plots written in crayon again. Lots of guns, lots of running about, some senseless death, a few hiccups in the plot and a political message written about as large as it is possible to write it. In crayon. Yes, we get the point.

Still, it had some good moments, and I am now actively liking the character of Donna.

Oh, but the reveal of what it is the Ood naturally hold in their hands instead of the translator ball was just plain silly.

Sad moment: when the Ood tells the Doctor his song will come to an end, just for a moment the music changes - from Ood music to Rose's theme.

And here's a thing: without the companion falling for the Doctor, have we conversely lost some of the distance and loneliness of the Doctor which has been one of his best traits in the RTD years?

Hmmm. Never noticed the Rose's theme thing.

But regarding the companion falling for the Doctor, don't worry, both Martha and Rose are coming back in future weeks...
