  • So much better than that rubbish last week.

    Last week episode was a tad dull, silly and Freema Agyeman acting as Martha was very wooden and did not help her win me over Rose. Felt last week was a bit of a let down.
    However it has been completely reversed this week.
    I found this episode amazing. From the Next Time preview from "Smith and Jones" I felt that this week would also not be good but I found this exciting and humurous.
    Martha is much quicker on the uptake than Rose and Freema's portrayal this week was much better than last week and seemed much less wooden. I love the quotes that she came out with.
    "You can tell people you met Shakespeare" Martha: "And then I can get sectioned."
    Also loved the many Harry Potter references though considering it is set in 2008 Martha would have read the book by now!
    An amazing episode and hoping to catch the next one unless football destroys it!
