Donna was pretty shit and an attempt to dumb the show down but Turn Left was a pretty good episode. Certainly one of RTD's better scripts (Compare it to the following story!). Tate gave a much superior performance to Piper in it.
This is where you lose credibility. After Rose and Martha, we get some one who isn't in love with the Doctor, who calls him on his shit, and actually grows and changes as a character.
And the show didn't get dumbed down. It certainly wasn't any dumber than it was before. And in some ways, I think it was better for having Donna, who in some ways was a more traditional companion.
It is kind of funny that the one companion since the revival who immediately shot down and didn't even have teases about a romance with the Doctor is "pretty shit."
"You mean life?"
"Yeah. Does it get easy?"
"What do you want me to say?"
"Lie to me."
