  • The Doctor and Martha meet Shakespeare but are interupted by what seems to be... witchcraft.

    I think i prefer this method of learning about Shakespeare to what we did in High School. This was a lot more fun. Especially with him flirting with Martha. Who knew he was a flirt?

    I loved the witches. The were completely like the old tales at that time. Scary, ugly, warty and casting spells. Who knew that magic was actually science in disguise? The special effects weren't so bad either, particually at the end.

    One thing that i didn't understand, why did the Doctor let Martha roam around in jeans? With everyother companion in that era, he's had the dress to that style. He didn't this time though...

    Anyway, the episode rocked!!! Good to see the Doctor back.
