I was expecting a story about one of the things that happens to Martha during the Year that Never Happened. That’s not what this is, but it foreshadows what will happen during Season 3 of the TV show. I didn’t find the plot particularly surprising, but it was interesting and enjoyable. Freema Agyeman voices it wonderfully. She has a way of capturing the Doctor’s voice without trying to do a David Tennant impersonation.
