Come on! You know you can’t resist!
1. NEW EARTH – Okay start to the season given the novelty of seeing Rose and the new Doctor interacting together for the first time without him suffering from post-regeneration trauma. Nothing great, but not too bad, either.
Final score: 2.5 out of 5
2. TOOTH AND CLAW – A step upward with this story of werewolves and Queen Elizabeth. Edgier than it seems at first. A bit too much flash over substance, which is a common weakness of Russell T Davies’s scripts (ninja monks that go nowhere, for example), but some nice thrills and a fun yet gentle slam at the royal family.
Final score: 3 out of 5
