"This is very low hanging fruit for me as far as Seventh Doctor."

Russell McGee

"I enjoy seeing the master, but the plot...its very convoluted"

Rachel Frend

"You guys are talking about heavy plots and convoluted stories, I thought this one was really easy to follow."


"You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a cheetah person."
