    Hello out there, Tracey here. Have a micro:
    Planet of the Ood, eh? This episode has it all: great sets, sweeping landscapes, emotions (even tears from Donna), pyrotechnics, morality, a guest star from that show Blackadder, and some poetic justice right at the end. Yes, everything one could want…except maybe a plot? Yeah, this one didn’t really make sense to me. Was it too simple or too complicated? And hang on, did the Doctor/Donna even do anything to advance the story?
    I will now rate this numerically simply because I really like hearing you say ‘naught’ instead of ‘zero’.
