Tennant happy he got a decent script again.
The Ood were pretty cool.

The Satan Pit was the ninth episode of Series 2. It stars the usual suspects, and is about how cool the devil is and how we should all worship him.


They really lean into the comparisons to Alien with this one.

Rose taunts a virgin with her fat ass, tons of characters get meaninglessly slaughtered, the devil gets blown the fuck out, and the Doctor does his "let's have a chat while you explain your plan to me" thing completely solo for once, which is impressive even by Davies standards.

Shit's real ood, man.


It's a Russell T. Davies does-tons-of-rewrites-written-episode. Except this time it was actually pretty good.

Bravo Davies! Jones, I dunno what you contributed here, but let's give you a bravo too.
