Doctor Who: Paradise Towers

I watched "Time and the Rani" back in October 2010, and then halted. No particular reason. Now I have resumed, and have watched "Paradise Towers", being the second episode of season 24 (and the first one that Andrew Cartmel commissioned).

I like it! I can't find anything to be sarcastic about, even. It is a fun little story, and despite being 4 x 25, it doesn't feel particularly padded (although no doubt these days it would be fitted into a very tight 45 minutes). The various different factions are good, and I don't even care that the setup makes no sense at all, because it is entertainingly distracting. It is let down somewhat by the cleaners, and by the large side of ham in episode 4 (although that's fun, too), and the incidental music, but apart from that the production is awesome. Even Mel isn't too bad.
