Diary Entry 20110516.1836 The OAPFiles Series 1 Episode 3: The Beast Below Review

For Amy Pond's first trip on the Tardis, the Doctor takes her to visit the starship UK, which turns out to be driven by compassion.

Yes, that's right: a star whale did it for the kids.

Overall the episode was solid. Both Gillan and Smith handle landing in the whale's mouth well.

Why am I spoiling it for Episode 2 of Series 5? The whole point of the episode is to show that compassion tends to motivate the "monsters" in this case.

This part gets lost on the Doctor Who fans a lot. So this episode is actually one of the best of Series Five. 10/10 from me.

Even so, the crack shows up again...
