3/13 - Planet of the Ood
There are some unexpected moments of throat-catching poignancy as the Doctor takes Donna to her
first-ever alien planet. There he's reunited with the Ood, and what unfolds prompts a teary Donna to
beg the Doc to take her home.
The Ood are brutalised in what look very much like concentration camps, before they're dispatched to
other planets as slaves, all at the behest of a nasty, besuited villain (the splendid Tim McInnerny).
