I totally LOVED this episode - wonderful and vibrant bank holiday viewing and the most colourful show on tv broadcast on Easter Saturday 2009. Never mind all those 'fans' who complained they wanted something darker and serious, this was just the tonic for good, jolly Easter viewing. (After all the 'darker' stuff is to follow.)
What a superb and fun script with an excellent cast. We have been blessed in recent times with good, rounded and strong companion characters. Christina joins them - prepared for everything, bold and confident. And what an entrance! Very Mission:Impossible and the best intro for a companion/ally ever.
Also, the actual production too looked absolutely utterly stunning. I am now convinced that modern day DW is made for HD and this Blu Ray release (the first for the series) is a very welcome addition to the DVD collection and with the confirmation that from this story on, all episodes will be filmed in HD begins a brand new chapter of how we view the episodes. The quality will be simply amazing I am sure.
Roll on the slow path to the tv airing of the next episode ..... and then the next Blu Ray disc.
