  • I still don’t find The Doctor’s jokes or the way he functions funny although I think they are trying to make him look funny

      The Doctor and Rose are on Earth and an alien craft hit the Earth. The Doctor is taken to 10 Downing Street as an expert on aliens but then the general and the new prime minister take off the human skin and show that they are aliens. They also kill all the experts while The Doctor ran to get the soldiers to catch the aliens, but when he comes back the aliens had already killed everyone and put on their skins and blamed the deaths on the doctor.

      So everyone is trying to catch The Doctor but he manages to escape and he closes himself with Rose and Harriett in the cabinet which is made of armoured steel. Mickey calls

      Rose and tells her about the police man who is an alien too.

      At that moment the police man is in front of the door and The Doctor collects all the info about the aliens to find out how to destroy them. In the end he realises they can be destroyed with vinegar so Mickey uses it to make the policeman explode.

      Then Mickey hacks into the navy security system, with The Doctor’s help, and he guides a missile to the Downing street no. 10.

      What the aliens wanted was to kill the human race so that they could sell the Earth on the black market. All the aliens get killed, at least we think they do, and Rose, Harriett and ...

      • The Doctor are saved because the cabinet is protected.

        The episode was cool, the ending was cool, the aliens were funny, and although they were walking the same way alien in Alien walked so that was a bit scary. The humour was a bit superficial and not very funny.

        I still don’t find The Doctor’s jokes or the way he functions funny although I think they are trying to make him look funny. This episode presented the Aliens similar to human beings, greedy and they care only about the money.

        Few episodes ago a human being tried to kill people for money too. This show actually deals with rather serious questions like time, aliens and life but in a rather light


        The aliens still look like Power Rangers enemies to me. The Doctor has a big decision to make here, to let the aliens destroy all the human kind or to sacrifice Rose.

        Actually they made such a big deal out of nothing because the fact was that if the aliens destroyed the human kind Rose would die too, she would die 100% and if the Doctor launched the missile on 10 Downing street Rose might even survive, as she did in the end. I think they were actually trying to make the episode more exciting and more tense but I really don’t see the point in all this fuss because it wasn’t like The Doctor was sacrificing only Rose, he was sacrificing Harriett and himself too.
