Partners in Crime

Well, I enjoyed it. There's no harm in being funny; I enjoyed the Doctor and Donna constantly missing each other and then their silent dialogue. But I was especially impressed with Donna's character's perception that the Doctor has changed - one of Tom Baker's insights into his time on the programme was that his Doctor couldn't really change or develop, and RTD has modified that a bit. I didn't see the plot (as some have) as an attack on fat people. I did like the appearance of That Blonde Girl at the end.

From my friends list, mostly with spoilers: Generally positive to enthusiastic notes from calapine here, stellanova here, altariel (succinctly) here, ephiriel here, and (I think) wwhyte here. A moderate view from lonemagpie here. Rather less enthusiasm from miss_s_b here (also spoilers for last night's Torchwood), sabayone here, ajshepherd here, and especially pickwick here.

Add me to the 'enjoyed it' list - it wasn't classic but it was a nicely done romp and reintroduced Donna well. Good performances from Lancashire and Cribbins too.

I was amused by Donna's long long scarf and wondered if that was a reference or homage

Ooh, I didn't spot that - will have to look out for it in a re-watch ...

I enjoyed it a lot, mostly because it was silly, and the alien looking aliens weren't actually evil.

I enjoyed it, but...

- The story didn't really hang together, it just seemed a bit patchy. Some good lines, but not a good story.
- The sonic screwdriver is just getting OTT now. Silly. Is it a sign that the writers have run out of steam?
- Donna wasn't as annoying as I thought she would be. Loved the scene with her Mum whittering on.
- Am getting fed up with the hammy overacting by Tennant.

'attack on fat people'? Hey I'd be quite happy to birth a couple of Adipose, sign me up the cat flap is ready.

an attack on fat people

Actually, one of the things I liked about the episode was that it refrained from any mockery of fat people. I'm rather depressed by the number of comments I've seen from people wishing they had a pill like the ones in the episode, though; apparently the mockery of the diet industry was a bit too subtle.
