Planet of the Ood
Series 4 Episode 3
Donna Noble visits her first alien world - the Ood Sphere, but the planet reveals some terrible and shocking truths about the human race.
  • It's worth noting that the Ood-Sphere is in the same solar system as the Sense-Sphere, the home planet of the Sensorites, which featured in the story 'The Sensorites' (1964). The Ood and Sensorites are probably in some way related because of this.
  • This episode marks the return of the Ood, last seen in The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit.
