As the solar storm rages, Jennifer, a Ganger driven mad by the memories of being "decommissioned", is seeking revenge, as the time-travelling drama continues. She can remember every excruciating second of every "execution" and is determined that the humans will pay. And she isn't just talking war; she's talking revolution. As the crumbling factory fills with toxic fumes and drips lethal acid, the "Originals" wait desperately for the shuttle from the Mainland to rescue them. But Jennifer has other ideas. Can the Doctor convince the terrified factory workers to embrace their own humanity and work together with their Gangers to overcome a monster of their own making?

    If you're looking for allegorical, intriguing science fiction, this isn't it. If you're OK with rapid-fire, light-hearted dialogue with an occasional dig at politics and culture, this "Doctor Who" is your cup of tea.

    A spiffy new version.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Marilyn Moss

    Silly, sophomoric stuff that is sure to please its television audience.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Sharon Eberson

    Some of the pop-culture humor and creatures owe a nod to "Farscape," but the camp level is high and can be mighty funny.

  • Matt Roush

    This remake achieves an Avengers-like balance of cheeky wit amid the cheesiness.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Charles McGrath

    Like so much British science fiction, especially Douglas Adams's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, this "Doctor Who" has a goofy, homemade quality; it's less interested in gizmos than in characters.

  • Despite a few missteps, there's much to recommend.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Joy Press

    The real disappointment of the new Who isn't its use of (slightly) slick special effects, though. It's a structural problem: Instead of stretching a storyline across a whole season, each adventure is resolved within a single episode, making this closer to your average detective series.

    It's pretty decent hokum--fast, corny, genial, honest in its schlock.
