“Planet of the Ood” Review

Our last retro-review before we start our reviews of series 9. The Doctor and Donna are on the Ood-Sphere and things aren’t what they seem. Rabid, red-eye’d Ood along with sinister corrupt business types, this can’t be good. Do we leave this one with a twinkle of human kindness towards the Ood slaves or are we left cold outside on the barren landscape?
