Did i see this wrong or was she not understanding the alien language, i thought the tardis automatically translated all alien languages for anybody who travelled in it.

Or have i got this wrong.
The TARDIS never translates the Judoon, they have to translate themselves. Although RTD explains in The Writer's Tale the Judoon aren't intelligent enough for the TARDIS to consider them sentient, so it doesn't translate their language. Maybe it's a similar situation here, the TARDIS is only translating aliens with a certain IQ?
