I love me some Toby Whithouse, and it was great to see a Who story by him that didn't feature incognito aliens getting blown up.
Yeah, but... Anthony Head... And Sarah Jane.And fish from space have never been so buxom. Whithouse is the RTD-era Moffat of the Moffat era... That's what I have to say about all of that.
"Vampires of Venice" also had the AMAZING Alex Price. Not that the other two stories were bad, it's just I liked seeing something different from him Who-wise. (I really love his show "Being Human," though.)
