In Billie Piper's last appearance in Doctor Who as Rose, the Doctor prepares to find a way to get rid of both the Daleks and the Cybermen who have declared war on each other when they meet in the Torchwood Institute. As always, Rose is determined to do whatever she can to help the Doctor get rid of them, but with danger at every turn, will her life be the price that has to be paid to stop them?
This was an exciting ride as the two worst enemies of the Doctor were finally pitted in battle against each other, and there are some excellent scenes of battle and it all comes to a very emotional climax. The whole cast do this incredible finalé justice, and the way the story comes together should keep any Doctor Who fan on the edge of their seats throughout.
