Episode Review : Series 3 Episode 2 "The Shakespeare Code"

By Mark

Main Characters: The Doctor (David Tennant), Martha Jones (Freema Ageyman), Carronites and William Shakespeare. (Dean Lennox Kelly)

Basic Storyline: Following on from "Smith and Jones" The Doctor takes Martha on the 1 trip he promised. They both end up in London year 1599 where they encounter Shakespeare in The Globe Theatre. Lilith, Mother Doomfinger and Mother Bloodtide are the 3 main carronites who are out to cause trouble and release the rest of the carronites through Shakespeare's lost play
"Love Labour Won", Lilith uses shakespeare as a puppet to cast the ultimate spell releasing the carronites onto Earth. The witches succeed however The Doctor, Martha and Shakespeare are their to save the day and Shakespeare manages to use words to deactivate the spell and send the carronites to their fiery death. However Lilith, Mother Doomfinger and Mother Bloodtide are trapped inside their own magic globe screeching away. The Doctor keeps this in the TARDIS and puts it in a room where they won't be heard. At the end of the episode The Doctor is chased by Queen Elizabeth's men! Why? Who knows? Even the doctor didn't know. Whats next for The Doctor and Martha?

My Favourite Line: The Doctor: "Badaboomba"

My Favourite Scenes:

1) When the Carronites are being freed from the globe causing a massive twister and uproar.


2) When Martha is hitting The Doctor but keeps hitting the wrong places which eventually leads to The Doctor shouting "Badaboomba!"
