Doctor Who “The Impossible Planet”

Warning: Spoilers for US Viewers

Doctor Who “The Impossible Planet”

Part 1 of 2 

Plot Summary: The Doctor and Rose land on a planet at the edge of a black hole and encounter the Ood where odd things start occuring.

Viewing Commentary:

  • Welcome to Hell. Hmm. Nice welcome.
  • Ok. I definitely played too much Dungeons & Dragons as a kid because the aliens vaguely remind me the Intellect Devourer monsters from the game, along with a few others.
  • Heh. “We must feed…you.”
  • Fun with black holes.
  • The Ood, a slave race.
  • Heh. The Doctor hugging the Captain and his captain about humans.
  • Ah yes. All the classic horror stuff: whispers, flickering lights, weird noises. Heh.
  • Hmm. “Satanic Planet”
  • “He is awake.”
  • I have to say some of the vis fx were quite good.
  • Space demon! :)
  • TBC… 

Miscellaneous Comments:

I found this an odd episode. Enjoyable, but odd. It seemed like a mix of a couple of different themes seen on recent science fiction movies such as Event Horizon (without the gore in this case) mixing traditional science fiction with your classic supernatural horror. 

Rating: 7.0/10
