When the two Cybermen meet the Dalek for the first time, they are exterminated. They fall directly in front of the Dalek, but when the camera angle changes to show the second Cyberman hitting the floor side on, you can see the Dalek in the background. The Cybermen both fell straight forward, so it shouldn't have been possible to see the Dalek when seeing the Cyberman side on in the next shot, as the Dalek is facing them both directly. See more »

This was an episode that brought together everything that is best about the new Doctor Who. David Tennant, alternately comic and dangerous, has completely eclipsed Chris Eccleston despite Eccleston's brilliance in the first series. Billie Piper completed her journey from ingénue to the best assistant that the Doctor has ever had. Jackie, Pete and Mickey all reappeared as the Tyler family group proved its strength in the extreme situations that the Doctor has forced them into. The face off between Daleks and Cybermen was the best moment of the two series so far with the two races bickering hilariously. Finally, in a series that has never been afraid to explore the idea of the Doctor in love there was the most satisfying and tear-jerking ending possible to the great relationship of the last two years. The final teaser for the Christmas episode was as funny as it was totally unexpected and promises much for the programme's long term future. Long live the Doctor!!
