    going to watch it now:D 


    the start felt like it had been neutered for thew most part and they just added in 10 seconds of footage for the explanation of how thy got back. but it was a good tradeoff with a good mix of politics/talk and action. i liked the acadamy references, the brother ones and the jellybeans :) . am i the only one who thinks that tose spheres are actally connected to the timewar or gallifrey in particlar. and i have a extreme dislike for marthas mother now, at least jackie only got the doctor and rose escorted in a limo and didn't get her family taken away in an animal control van.

    Well, now we know how the Master came back, and he probably has a full set of regenerations to go with it too! well, minus 1, of course.

    ZOMG!
    TIME LORDS! IN CEREMONIAL DRESS! ON GALLIFREY!

    Ok, now that I've watched it, I have to say that it was one of the series highlights.
    The Master was winning on every front and has anticipated every move of The Doctor.

    The did give an explanation as to how he's up and about, and the talk between The Master and The Doctor was excellent, also they mentioned how The Master has been hiding on Earth all this time.

    Although he did seem to act a bit over the top, John Simm did portray The Master very well. I am curious about his wife though.

    I am curious about the sphere's though. Who are they?
    And I laughed when I saw the ship. Very SHEILD/Captain Scarlet.
    Nice handling of Jack working for Torchwood.

    Slightly annoyed that I will have to wait longer in seeing the finalle (what with being at Botcon) but if it's anything like this episode it'll be worth the wait.

    also, i hope the master has a backup tardis, since he is blowing up/disabling the doctors.

    I was thinking about this during the week.
    First thing he could have done is went to where his TARDIS was left, materialised The Doctors one round it, then whisked them both off to Earth.

    I wonder how much it would cost to get cryogenically frozen for a week? I really want to see how this turns out.

    Oh one thing I want to know.

    How the hell did the BBC manage to time about the last fifteen minutes with a huge thunderstorm and torrential rain around my area?

    It was like the sky was falling, and fantastic :p

    That was one awesome episode. My Dad made the observation that this version of The Master is very much like the Joker to the Doctor's Batman. I love all the little explanations in the dialogue, like why Gwen and co. couldn't help Jack. I get the feeling that is where Torchwood will pick up again. But John Simm as the Master stole every scene he was in. Absolutely brilliant portrayal, he isn't someone to mess with.

    Those alien spheres made me think of the Mechanoids, but the Master's line to the Doctor "if I told you, your hearts would stop" makes me think there is something more to them. But what could it be?

    I thought that was just a little overdone, actually.

    Now that I think of it, though, never mind the orbs, I want to know what the deal with Mrs Master is!

    she is certainly interesting. she is clearly supporting the master without being hypnotised so perhaps she could have something to do with the orb peoples
