NuWho Rewatch: New Earth  
Hmm... it's actually a while since we rewatched this (still so behind) and not a great deal lingers in my mind. Billie Piper and David Tennant both do nice bits of acting as Cassandra. You can see from the way both hold their bodies when they are possessed. Piper is better, I think, but Tennant is still settling into the role and his performance is veering around a bit. Mimicking someone else doesn't help this. Already we start getting the first hints of the `lonely god' characterisation. I wasn't really aware, until I started this rewatch, how often the words lonely and god/devil/angel/etc., were attached to the tenth Doctor.

It's a competent enough story and does its job as a season opener, but its mostly unremarkable.
