Doctor Who: The Planet of the Dead in brief

It was very easy to tell that Russell T. Davies wrote this Doctor Who episode with a collaborator (in this case, Gareth Roberts.) I have not yet seen the Doctor Who Confidential for this episode, but I am reasonably confident in myself and in Mr. Davies' abilities to create for you the following guide so that you can easily and unmistabkly identify when each of the writers took a turn at the script:
If something reasonably cool or even awesome is happening, that's Gareth Roberts' doing.

If something trite, cliché or just downright face-palmingly bad is happening, that's Russell T. Davies' doing.
The 200 level class will take place tomorrow.

Yes, I know Gareth Roberts is responsible for The Shakespeare Code too, but it felt like there was a very distinct dividing line in this episode that kept clearly marking where one writer left off and the other picked up.
