It's a bit inaccurate to say Jo was "dumped" since she chose to stop travelling with the Doctor. I think her main issue was that the Doctor never checked in on her in all the years since.
Oh, absolutely, looking at it rationally, she left the Doctor, but, yea, he didn't leave a number, and never visited again, makes you feel really inadequate, compared to Rose and then Sarah Jane (with her three NuWho Doctor Adventures), and now Amy/River. *Of course, any Classic Companion could claim this "Abandonment", and that was kinda the point, it didn't really register until NuWho.

All I can really think is that this episode should have been a two-parter. I enjoyed everything until the ending, which was incredibly rushed, and I felt that the bad guy came out of left field. Who are these aliens? Why do they want to kill the humans? Why do we give a shit? Oh, and the ship is automated, so the Doctor can just wave his screwdriver at a computer screen and make everything better. Really lame. The episode should have ended right after they boarded the alien ship with a big TO BE CONTINUED.

I feel like I remember Eleven telling Jo Grant that he visited all of the former companions, even if they didn't know he was doing so, in the Sara Jane Adventures episode he guest starred in?

The implication being that Ten(nant!) visited every one of them in those last minutes of "The End of Time" and we only were privy to the companions from nuWho at the time.

Jo got to voice her frustration, and Eleven pointed out that he had checked up on her, she just didn't know it.

EDIT: He did! Scan forward to about 6:30:

I gave it top marks for character development, good script and lots of fun... However, it was wrapped up far too quickly for my taste. Could have been a nice two parter and made the threat more, well, threatening.

Well I thoroughly enjoyed that, much better than the last two. Sure the solution was ridiculously rushed but the build up was lovely.

In this half season.

Five is half of fourteen.

I spent most of the episode smugly expecting that the cubes would turn out to be droppings of some invisible alien beasts. Space guano.

I thought it was a pretty good episode. I wasn't too fussed about the lackluster enemy or the rushed conclusion; they were really only there because convention dictates that there must be some kind of wacky sci-fi problem. The episode was really about the Ponds and the Doctor, and IMO it excelled in that regard. Looking forward to this weekend.

Make sure you don't get confused with the Guano Apes then.

This upcoming episode is the mid-season finale, which Space now refers to as season finales presumably for simplicity sake. Season 7 is split up thusly:

Episodes 1-5 in September 2012.
Episode 6, the Christmas special on Chirstmas Day 2012.
Episodes 7-14 sometime in early 2013.

^ Kind of apt though this time around as presumably the second half of the season is going to be pretty distinct from this side with the Ponds.
