  • The Doctor brings Martha to the Globe Theatre to meet the great genius that is Shakespeare.

    There were a lot of things I liked about this episode. I liked the interaction and the banter between the characters- especially the fantastic Dean Lennox Kelly as William Shakespeare. I thought the plot was clever and someone had researched Shakespeare extremely well as there were loads of quick references in almost every scene. I liked the scene where the Doctor remembered Rose and how the witch knew that her name could hurt him. I also liked to allusion to his real name. What I didn't like was Martha's crush on the Doctor. It is starting to get annoying. As Shakespeare said, the Doctor will probably never kiss her. I want her to get over it as soon as possible. Otherwise it was a funny and exciting episode and I was not disappointed.
