Little Red Riding Hood

The new Doctor Who series started brilliantly, stalled a couple of times (no pun intended) and now culminates in a stunning two part finale (to be concluded at Christmas if rumors are true).

Episode 12 "Bad Wolf" is an inspired take on popular reality shows laced with the cynicism of The Prisoner. The Daleks return en masse and the effects rival anything seen in the Star Wars prequels. To say that Russell T Davies saved the best for last would be an understatement and a disservice. Now, are the Daleks the servants of the Master?
