  • This episode deals with the ussualy series themes, and like a previous episode it is set in a ruined city. This is a good change of scenery and leads to a thrilling episode that is up there with the best in the series. Alan is the centre of the episode.moreless

    This episode may just be in my top pota episodes, although it certainly isn't as good as the previous episode, it still is at a high standerd imo. The episode is alan centric and can be a bit cliched and emotional at times. I also felt the acting was below par at times, but I do think other elements such as the revealling story, and unusualy setting made up for it. Overall this is a fab episode that is much the same as the epiosdes and yet at the same time manages to provide something a tiny bit different. Good stuff.moreless
