The Mail has gone downhill lately.

Boom Town is the comfy eleventh episode of Series 1.

Story

Nine, Rose, Sexmachine and Mickey Smiff are having chips when they realise Blon Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen (in the form of Colin Baker) has eaten most of Cardiff. Nine offers to take Colin out to dinner in an attempt to stop him but his efforts are in vain. Colin eats the Ninth Doctor, his companions and the TARDIS before consuming most of Western Europe. With the entire cast and crew dead the BBC are forced to abandon the revived series of Doctor Who and the remaining episodes are replaced with reruns of Dimensions in Time.

Lore

DOCTOR: Blaidd Drwg.
ROSE: What's it mean?
DOCTOR: Bad Wolf.
ROSE: But I've heard that before. Bad Wolf. I've heard that lots of times.
DOCTOR: Everywhere we go. Two words following us. Bad Wolf.
ROSE: How can they be following us?
DOCTOR: ... Nah, just a coincidence.

BRAVO DAVIES

Along the same lines, "I knew we should've turned left!" but that's just ripping off an old Bugs Bunny joke. Just a coincidence. bravo davies

Reception

It's basically RTD patting himself on the back for 45 minutes, but as unappealing as that might sound, it actually works this time. Just fucking watch it.
