->''"I remember Creator/RussellTDavies discussing how he insisted on anchoring ''Series/DoctorWho'' in reality, to ensure that the show kept one foot in the real world show that the audience had something that they could buy into. That they could relate to. He didn't want lots of stories set on dull planets that failed to connect to people. That's probably why he got rid of Gallifrey in the first place. And what a sound creative decision that was in my eyes. Gallifrey has only ever really worked in one story for me (''The Deadly Assassin'') and in that story it was [[SugarApocalypse perversely playing against type]]...Otherwise it is simply a [[CrystalSpiresAndTogas terrifically boring stock SF planet full of pompous characters spouting stilted dialogue]] involving a horrific amount of {{technobabble}}."''

->Like the {{Nerd}}s, the {{Surfer|Dude}}s take every bullet-point cliché of a subculture and roll it into one broad representation. The trio are early 90' s So-Cal personified. One of these new faces wears a backwards red baseball cap, [[Music/LimpBizkit Durst]] style, while the other has long, ratty, rocker hair and chequered shorts. Together they resemble Bodhi's gang from ''Film/PointBreak'', with eyes half-lidded in a perpetually stoned droop, and their mouths hanging open in a frozen “no way.”

->''"It is interesting that this is the show’s first real story about organised crime, but the fact that all of the mobsters in 'Omertà' look like they wandered out of ''[[Film/MillersCrossing Miller's Crossing]]'' would suggest that this might be a good thing. Boney, Paulo and Donny arrive in Coker Creek in the most conspicuous manner possible. Boney [[FurAndLoathing wears a giant fur coat]] while attempting to assassinate Eddie with a sniper rifle, which seems like a somewhat unlikely mob hit. More than that, the plot hinges on the contrivance that the only shot that Boney can take on Eddie is a sniper shot [[SoHappyTogether while he plays on a swing with Rose]]...'Omertà' is a story that feels assembled from cut up newspapers thrown into the air. ''Angels living in the woods! Mobsters! Sniper rifle! Christmas! Fur coat! [[TypeCasting Jon Polito!]]''"''

->''"Cop woman’s got a schizophrenic younger sister (we know she’s schizophrenic via the highly original and unclunky line'' “have you gone off your meds again?”'') ...Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like that on TV before.\\\
The woman cop finds out that her rebellious younger sister is doing porn by happening to raid the place where she happens to be doing porn. So that’s not contrived at all.\\\
We later learn of the underlying problem with Cop Woman's life, and guess what... it all traces back to a man! Guess which man. Go on, guess. Yep, you guessed it: [[WellDoneSonGuy Daddy.]] She’s got Daddy issues! Colour me fucking astonished."''
