A lovely story though highly likely it takes its inspiration from fires of Vulcan.

The doctor and Donna arrive at Pompeii at the event of its eruption but discover that a race know as the pyrites have been pulling strings and pushing the eruption along.
Setting and defects are great, score typically excellent and acting ( donnas especially) strong.
It’s a nice curveball that the rather comedic companion played by Tate is also very strong in emotional moments.


I really didn’t give season 4 a chance at a younger age. It’s now my favourite of the new stuff !


This story is give a solid 8

( I recommend fires of Vulcan with seven and mel as it’s clearly a influence and is even better though in no means does that mean I’m having a snipe on the fires of Pompeii)!!

Donna’s first trip in the TARDIS and the story does so much to cement the Doctor-Companion relationship between the two. There’s a great conflict over whether the Doctor should interfere in Pompeii. The story mixes hilarity at the beginning with a steady of build of dramatic tension that ends in a powerful and beautifully written conclusion.
