Julian Bleach ...


The Doctor and his companions prepare to do battle with Davros and the Daleks who are out to destroy everything and everyone in the universe other than themselves. All seems lost when the Daleks apparently destroy the TARDIS but it's not that simple as an empowered Donna - and a new version of the Doctor - take control and face the Dalek menace head on. For one of the Doctor's companions however, there will be a heavy price to pay. Written by garykmcd

A thoroughly satisfying conclusion to this season
5 July 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Journey's End" is a marvellously satisfying finale to this latest season. Russell T. Davies pulls out all the stops to tie up the loose ends and unfinished business from previous seasons in a manner that should please the majority of fans. Dramatic, moving and humorous, this story contains all that is special about the "new" series.

While Davros is somewhat underused in this tale, it remains a terrifically faithful return of this old nemesis and we see his most ambitious plans to-date unfold.

This longer-than-usual installment is a joy from beginning to end. A taste of the Christmas special will keep viewers counting the days 'til the 25th December when we will be reacquainted with another old enemy.

10 out of 10. Splendid.
