Having locked themselves in however, how they will manage to stop them becomes a major issue.

Continuing the "Bad Wolf" theme, the American newsreader announcing the UN's decision is named "Mal Loup", French for "Bad Wolf". The name does not appear in the televised clip, but is present on the version on Mickey's website. See more »
When Harriet Jones brings up that the Slitheen 'fart' doesn't smell like a fart, Rose assists her by saying "bad breath". Rose was never in the same room with a Slitheen when there was a 'gas exchange'. See more »
I'm actually part of the small group of people who actually has a bit of a soft spot for this story but at the same time I fully understand any critiques. This is a very all over the place serial. All the crash landing stuff and news coverage make it feel gritty and "down to Earth" ironically, but on the other hand and at the same time the Slitheen themselves are portrayed in a very silly and slapstick manor and it just ends up... strange. That being said I think both parts still retain that mid 2000s charm that Ecclestone and most of Tennant's tenure brought with them. I'm going to give "Aliens of London/World War Three" a 7.2 to a 7.3
