Did You Know?


A particular piece of music written by regular composer, Murray Gold with vocals from Melanie Pappenheim, caused an influx of emails to the BBC requesting a Doctor Who soundtrack on the back of this piece of music alone. The following year, fans' wishes were granted and a soundtrack was released on the strength of the emails inquiring about that one particular piece of music, the title of which is simply known as "Doomsday".

When Rose is about to be sucked into the breach, the shot beside her shows Rose hanging on to the lever vertically with her whole body sideways. When the shot cuts to a shot in front of the lever she is holding on horizontally with her chest facing down. Then the cut back shows her holding on vertically when she lets go. Cut back again and she is falling in horizontally. See more »

Great episode
26 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was probably one of the more well put together episodes this season. Although I will miss Rose, she and the Dr. were developing too much sexual attraction. In the past whenever previous Dr's became to close to their companions the writers promptly wrote the gals off. So I wasn't surprised to see Rose's Departure. Although I was originally apprehensive with David Tenant's ability to play the Dr. that I in vision in my mind I have come to really appreciated his acting abilities. He has done an outstanding job in this season as playing the witty creative Dr. that I am sure we all have come to expect. Does anyone know the name of the song that played near the end of this episode while Rose is separated from the Dr.? Thanks, Gary
