    This episode was very funny to film, very funny indeed!!! The “Silurians” are returning! (With a very odd twist) It’s a very enjoyable episode! But again, i cannot say too much, but there is a line in the episode, a funny one, which i thought i’d tell you! “We are fixing the soil, something damaged it in our dig…” “I’ll fix you, YES I WILL” haha, see if you get the reference 😉

    King Gerbil, have to agree with Barry Rix on this one…The Silurians in “Warriors of the deep” were a different clan to those in the Pertwee stories yet looked the same and were instantly recognisable as Silurians. Even in the Big Finish story “Bloodtide” they were another different clan but deisgned to sound the same and be recognisable for what they were. Now I’m not saying that the original costumes were amazing, but at least they were an atempt to be something truely alien, not just a ‘middle ages’ soldier with a token prosthetic head. I have a horrible feeling that these new silurians will sound VERY human as well ! Time will tell on all this but at the moment I’m fearing for the future and what else will be changed for the sake of change…Such a shame as MS and KG are doing a fantastic job on the show !

    So they have drilled deeper into the earth’s crust than the Inferno Project! This story seems like a respectful nod to Season 7, which can only be a good thing!

    I hope that the Silurians will not be spoilt, like the Daleks have, change for change sake.

    I cant to see The Silurians they look more better than they were before and a bit scarier but what I noticed is that their heads remind me of the Great Dragon’s head in MERLIN but all in all they look brilliant.
