"Doctor Who: Planet Of The Dead" by disturbed writer, Russell Davies, is an unoriginal bow, to the once creative series. In watching this extended version of the regular hour long BBC program, this episode in particular, about a planet devoured by metal stingray creatures, one is blaringly reminded of two films, "Back To The Future" and "Kate and Leopold." The episode also poaches scenes from "Harry Potter" regarding the smashed British bus on the bridge, hoping no one will notice.

Seeing the red British bus fly through the air, with knock-off "Back To The Future" music playing in the background, causes one to immediately think of the 80's classic, where the same scene played, but with a Delorean and a guy named Marty.

There is a scene featuring the Doctor on a bridge at night, which has a time warp to another time, much like the scene unfolded in the preexisting film "Kate and Leopold" featuring, you guessed it, a time warp on a bridge at night, leading to another dimension.

"Doctor Who" was a wonderful program, before it fell into the hands of Davies, who has used the program to settle social scores and abuse real live people, in taking headlines from the news, blogs and living people's lives, then defamatorily incorporating them in the show.

Such conduct is plain lazy, crazy, unlawful, devoid of any class and screams amateurism. It is going to get him into trouble one day.
