Midnight was actually somewhat refreshing, I must say. Clearly he set out to write something different, and certainly managed it; it's also nice as a reminder once in a while that the Doctor isn't infallible and sometimes doesn't know what the hell is going on as much as the next person. Okay, if I were being cruel, I might say that parts were sort of Lost-ish, and the noble self sacrifice was a little abrupt (clearly it was supposed to be of guilt, but even so), but as a story it was fairly well constructed and I quite remarkably didn't want to throw anything at the screen even once.

It's nice to know that Russell T is capable of writing things that don't seem quite so... Russell T.

Sergeant: You can? That's amazing!
Mason: Yes. We call it 'Google Earth'.
