This story typically shows RTDs imagination. A villain made of skin on a frame, the end of the world party, tree people, Rose coming to terms with the world of travelling with The Doctor. Yes the whole 'switch at the end of the fan platform' doesn't make sense but its a good peril for the doctor. The end scene is the best though. Wonderfully played, the doctor reveals a stunning development in his character... Zoe Wanamaker is fab too!

This episode typifies the problem I have with the New Series. Whereas the classic series had odd and amusingly misguided visions of the future, all too often the new series pictures the future as pretty much the same. In other words, the year 5 billion is just a randomly chosen number, and no thought is given to considering what might actually be different.

Overall a rather average story with an odd, but uninteresting, villain.
