This story suffers from many things: an uninspired guest cast (exception: Abdul Salas as the obsessed city worker,) a poorly executed plot, difficulty in finding the right tone for the story, it's similarity to an early Series 2 episode (The Idiot's Lantern,) and numerous moments to celebrate Britain getting to host the 2012 Olympiad that come off as a bit cheesy.
However, what saves the story is the two leads. The Doctor is good in this story despite a few awkward moments in the first ten minutes, but this story is one of Rose's strongest Series 2 episodes and she really is the best part of this episode. In addition, the core story isn't a bad idea. It's just clumsily executed.
