Villain- The Wire, an alien from the planet of Hermethica, who feeds off the faces and minds of humans through television. Isn't it always the television that everyone hates? :)

Bishop: Start from the beginning. Tell me everything you know.
The Doctor: Well, for starters, I know... you can't wrap your hand round your elbow and make your fingers meet

Rose: I'm surprised they didn't turn back and arrest you for reckless driving. Have you actually passed your test?

Eddie: Well it's housework, isn't it?
The Doctor: And that's a woman's job?
Eddie: Course it is!
The Doctor: Mr Connolly, what gender is the Queen?
Eddie: She's a female.
The Doctor: And are you suggesting the Queen does the housework?
Eddie: No! No, not at all.
The Doctor: Then get busy!

Rose: 'Scuse me Mr Connolly, hang on a minute. Union Jacks?
Eddie: Yes, that's right, isn't it?
Rose: That's the Union Flag. It's the Union Jack only when it's flown at sea. Eddie: Oh. Oh, I'm sorry. I... I do apologise.
Rose: Well, don't get it wrong again. There's a good man, now get to it!
The Doctor: Right then! Nice and comfy, at Her Majesty's Leisure. [to Rose]
The Doctor: Union Flag?
Rose: Mum went out with a sailor.
The Doctor: Oh, I bet she did.

Rose: I'm going, I'm done! Nice to meet you Tommy. Mrs Connolly. And as for you Mr Connolly, only an idiot hangs the Union Flag upside down. Shame on you! (Smiles and dashes out the door)

Policeman: (The Doctor shows the Psychic Paper at him) Oh... sorry sir. Shouldn't you be at the Coronation?
The Doctor: (Still running) They’re saving me a seat!
Tommy: Who did he think you were?
The Doctor: (looks at Psychic Paper) King of Belgium, apparently.

Favorite Character- Good oldTommy was a doll, lovely. Not much to write here, haha(:

Favorite Moment- Climax moment, Tommy and The Doctor are on the television-tower-pole thingie, Magpie holding the Wire, and also when The Doctor, Tommy, and Detective Inspector Bishop are in the Magpie television store.

Tear Factor- 1 out of 10

Fear Factor- Not really any, not best of episode. 1 out of 10

Rating- 6 out of 10

Are we sitting comfortably?
