Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Is it just me or would it have been better if...

... rather than the good guys winning and so forth, the Doctor had his companions had actually lost. They'd just gotten out of the processing factory with their lives, and the Doctor's all "well, we bollocksed that one up. Time to leg it!" amd Mickey's all "Hey, you might not want to stick around and clean up the mess you've made, but I'm sure as hell going to." Then after the TARDIS leaves the world is overrun by Cybermen, because it's an alternate reality, and you can do that. And Mickey's leading the underground resistance, etc.

Or maybe that is just me.

Your version would have made a good story too, although I don't have any problems with the version as made (except that the version we got to see had announcements-for-the-vision-impaired over the second-last five minutes).

Incidentally... does anyone else get the feeling this new series has been quietly mining the classics? The Christmas Invasion was fairly much "The Silurians", particularly the ending, and this one isn't a million miles away from "Inferno". Except that in "Inferno" the world actually got blown up...

I'm not sure I see the simularity between The Christmas Invasion and The Silurians!

Don't mind me, my brain just makes strange connections sometimes. I was particularly thinking of the way the story ended - Doctor sorts things out, then the military walks in and starts exterminating, leaving the Doctor rather pissed off.

It's only screening in the UK at the moment. Prime will probably screen it here after Stargate: Atlantis finishes which would give it a start date of July 6...

Whew! I thought that was the case, but you gave me a bit of a fright there.
