The whole bus-on-a-desert-planet thing looks a bit iffy but still...it's on NOW!!!!!
got Newcastle and a punk show tonight... but this Doctor Who looks like it should be an interesting / good one
michelle ryan <3
i <3 david tennant so much. michelle ryan's voice in this is good!
I'm a bit apprehensive about the villain though. I've not liked those two scenes... Everything else seems great though.
i'm too drunk to concentrate on anything for more than 30 seconds plus i don't wanna turn the ramones off.
not a fan of Michelle Ryan tbh.
but couldn't UNIT send a vehicle through to tow the bus to safety?
i wonder if anyone from gallifrey ever took the name "the mechanic"
but yah, I guess with a CRACK TEAM this would be overcome. Was there even any certainty that the rescue vehicle would end up in the same place?
Michelle Ryan travels the world in a flying double decker bus saving the world and narrating the sights. The pitch'll be Tomb Raider meets Wish You Were Here.
Michelle Ryan and Lee Evans were both superb, and I'm not a fan of either. Just a super fun adventure before things get heavy with the last three specials. Loved the foreboding at the end with the 'four knocks'. The Waters of Mars looks like it'll be a cracker already.
i wasn't keen on lee evans being in it but he was good!
so do we have two more specials with david tennant? when are they shown?
The Waters of Mars in November-ish, then a his final swansong two parter at Christmas. Lindsay Duncan is the 'companion' for the next one, then Bernard Cribbins is the companion for the last couple of stories. Donna will be back too (Catherine Tate confirmed this on Radio 2 this morning), and a certain bad guy might have been spotted on set.
boo that we have wait until november though :(
this was kinda one of them. Why didn't the bus stop when the police were chasing after it? It wasn't like the driver had done anything wrong.
that the driver didn't know they were following the bus *shrugs* Don't look at me for a decent explanation!
It was an OK episode, I liked Lee Evans in it.
I hope Michelle Ryan's character doesn't come back, she was awful.
She was an insufferable know-it-all for a lot of it.
and completely at odds with everyone else on that bus. She hardly batted an eyelid at being on a different planet.
She was very phlegmatic, took things in her stride etc
The other characters were pretty much sidelined which I didn't like so much, but I guess otherwise it would have just been a straight 'group of survivors under threat' rehash, and they've done that one a fair amount already
they were trapped in a broken-down space-bus on that Luxury-Resort-Planet was brilliant!
Yeah a lot of people liked that one, I wasn't crazy about it though.
Wasn't on the edge of my seat at all, scariest bit was bus driver man going through the wormhole, and that was just a bit gruesome. Think the threat felt a bit too "distant", perhaps. Did enjoy it though! Particularly liked the hints at the end: through the dark/knock four times/song is ending - possibly a reference to River Song?
why didn't the bus stop when the police were chasing it?
michelle ryan as lara croft?
the flying bus
how could alien superbeings capable of destroying worlds with metal bodies be shot down by the cannon fodder in unit?
why wasn't it more like vin diesels second best film pitch black?
that waters of mars one looked like it should be more substantial
He can occasionally pull off a Joss Whedon, but not often enough. Normally its too camped up (see the Master putting a mini CGI Doctor Who in a cage) or can have gay rights/sexuality shoehorned in (see 'Midnight' when that woman starts repeating - great episode, but earlier she makes an unsubtle reference to a female partner - A TOTAL DAVIES SHOEHORN)
those creatures and the desert were a definite Pitch Black rip-off. But na, i enjoyed it. x
Russell T. Davies still managed to find a corridor for them to run down (and managed to filmed it using a camera set at a skewed angle).
