This week, we return to those heady days of Doctor Who’s return in 2005 with BOOM TOWN, the late season sequel to the2005 season’s first two-part story.  Most fans would agree that the Slitheen didn’t exactly light up the Whoniverse as the most compelling of new alien races (but certainly the most flatulent).  However, Russell T Davies takes a last minute replacement script and uses it to fashion not only something that single-handedly rehabilitates the Slitheen, it also gives Christopher Eccleston the chance to flex his acting muscles in a quiet, more intimate manner.  The 9th Doctor’s single season felt like it was all-go from the moment it blasted onto our screens…but this episode slows everything down, and takes stock of the roller-coaster life the Doctor & Rose have been living up to this point.
