More about Doctor Who
More about this two-parter
This two-parter was first broadcast on 3 - 10 June 2006. A brief and somewhat spoiler-ish summary of the plot: the Doctor and Rose are stranded on a space base, where they encounter the source of all evil.
Apart from the religious overtones, which I think the old series wouldn't have gone near, this is a traditional Doctor Who base-under-siege story. In particular there are strong links with the Tom Baker stories 'The ark in space' and 'Planet of evil', and also the Doctor's "You, humans!" enthusiasm is very Baker-ish.
I couldn't remember much about this two-parter, and watching it again I was pleasantly surprised. Some good things about this story:
The less good news:
