Today’s Episode: Planet of the OOD
Writer: Keith Temple
I’ve never been a big fan of this episode. It does feel a bit filler, but at the same time, we get to know the OOD a bit better than we did back in Season 2 with Rose when they visited the Impossible Planet. How Donna behaves toward the OOD reminds me of Rose, and Hermione and the Harry Potter ‘verse. Remember the House Elves? Dolby?
The whole thing that made this totally unbelievable was the “hair tonic” turned this guy into OODkind. Also, the whole “DOCTOR DONNA FRIENDS!” chat that they were saying reminded me a bit of Finding Nemo, “Fish are our Friends, NOT food!” for some reason.
I did love the banter though between Donna and the Doctor.. like this..
It was also nice to see Donna and the Doctor actually stay behind and clean up a bit of the mess and to help the OOD.
No planet mentioned this time though, but Donna did note the bees again to the Doctor. So here’s a dancing OOD.. till tomorrow.
