io9 have put an article on their site saying how The Empty planet is one of the best Doctor Who stories not to actually appear on Doctor Who. I usually think the stuff they post is a bit crap but its actually a pretty decent article. Its long so I havent posted it all, but there is a snippet below or the full thing is through the link.

And it's official Clyde and Rani not only make a brilliant team, they also have incredible chemistry and the little hints that they might wind up dating are almost too tantalizing to bear. This time, Clyde kisses Rani on the cheek, but still. And they hold hands a bit and talk about how they have each other. I hope we're not being set up for some kind of tragic twist or something. I also loved that both Clyde and Rani are actually quite smart and competent when the chips are down, noticing stuff and working things out including the reason why the two of them weren't taken when everyone else was.

Bit of a leap there. It was a good story, but I wouldnt say it was one of SJA's best let alone one of the best DW stories that hasnt been on DW

I agree. It was a great story but a lot of TW and SJA is better

Its a very bold statement, but not one that I agree with. The Death Of The Doctor one was far better imo

He is also vain, ego-centric and quite mad

This is an interesting post, not because I particularly agree with it (I did enjoy the episode though). What is interesting, I think, is how embedded the SJA are now within the Whoniverse. The fact that this is any sort of a proposition is a real reflection on the strength of SJA.

I always really enjoy this story, but I think I agree with what others have said so far. There are many other stories which are better than this one.
