    One of the best Christopher Eccleston episodes, and one of Moffat's best scripts. We even get to meet Captain Jack in this one. Part two, "The Doctor Dances," is just as good, with the happiest of endings. Itï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)s brilliant episodes like this one that make you remember just how good Doctor Who used to be before Chris Chibnall broke it. So sad to see a once great show become crap.

    O episódio tem um ritmo muito bom, mantém o suspense de uma forma extremamente inteligente e garante uma revelação completamente inesperada no final. Um dos melhores episódios de Doctor Who.

    Most definitely one of the best episodes of the new series, if not the best. With brilliant writing and amazing characters, it really shows what Doctor Who is all about. First off, the mere concept of the zombie-like Empty Child is chillingly genius. A creature who follows you wherever you go, uttering the singular phrase "are you my mummy?" Is enough to haunt anyone, and the scene where Dr. Constantine is transformed is truly terrifying. And yet, this monster is also truly human, simply a frightened little boy looking for his mum. This is played out perfectly, with a happy ending which seems natural and well-deserved. All-in-all, this is a true gem of an episode, not only introducing the charismatic Captain Jack, but also showing just how truly under-appreciated Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is.

    A very good Doctor Who story to represent Christopher Eccleston's time as the Doctor and one of Steven Moffat's better stories for new Who.
