A year ago (in the episode The Runaway Bride), Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) has turned down Doctor Who's (David Tennant) offer to travel with him through time and space - a decision she has since come to regret, so she investigtes all kinds of weird occurencies in hopes to bump into the Doctor again - and when she stumbles upon a mysterious weight loss pill called Adipose, bingo, there he is.

Thing is, Adipose is not really a weight loss pill but alien semen that creates cute little aliens out of fat mass, ant the head of the Adipose company, Ms Foster (Sarah Lancashire), who sees herself as a supernanny, wants to use the the entire UK as a giant breeding facility (after all, everybody takes weight loss pills, right?). When the Doctor and Donna interfere, however, Ms Foster is less than pleased, but of course, the Doctor can put an end to her ambitious plans in the end, while the alien babies - just innocent cute creatures - are allowed to leave the planet unharmed. And at the hands of the alien race that ordered the babies (yup, they are actually mail-order kids), Ms Foster even gets her just desserts.

And the Doctor?

Yup, he gets the girl - Donna -, who's more than willing to travel with him this time round.

A cameo by Billie Piper as Rose hints at things to come, but has no narrative significance to this episode.

 

The good news first: Catherine Tate is nowhere near as annoying as she was in The Runaway Bride. The bad news though is that this episode is little more than an overlong effort to set Tate up as the Doctor's new sidekick, using a very slim story as a hanger. True, the story could have been biting social satire, but it's simply never allowed to fully developed in favour of giving the Donna-character way too much room to develop. That all said, Partners in Crime isn't all bad, it does feature at least a few moments of suspense and comedy (first and foremost a running gag featuring Verona Joseph tied to a chair that makes you wish she'd become the Doctor's new sidekick) that really work, but overall, the whole thing seems just way too insignificant to be even vaguely memorable.
