Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Luke Smith (as Thomas Knight)
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

Those shown in flashback who die for the Doctor are Harriet Jones who dies in this episode, Jabe from Doctor Who: The End of the World (2005), The Controller from Doctor Who: Bad Wolf (2005), Lynda Moss from Doctor Who: The Parting of the Ways (2005), Robert MacLeish from Doctor Who: Tooth and Claw (2006), Mrs Moore from Doctor Who: The Age of Steel (2006), Colin Skinner from Doctor Who: Love & Monsters (2006), Ursula Blake from Doctor Who: Love & Monsters (2006) (who did not die but was left permanently disfigured and incapacitated), Bridget Sinclair from Doctor Who: Love & Monsters (2006), Face of Boe from Doctor Who: Gridlock (2007), Chantho from Doctor Who: Utopia (2007), Astrid Peth from Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned (2007), Luke Rattigan from Doctor Who: The Poison Sky (2008), Jenny from Doctor Who: The Doctor's Daughter (2008) (who is, in fact, not dead, but the Doctor is unaware of this), River Song from Doctor Who: Forest of the Dead (2008) (Though only her body is dead. The Doctor preserves her mind in the computer of The Library), and the Hostess from Doctor Who: Midnight (2008). It could be argued that out of all of these flashbacks, Jenny's death affects the Doctor the most, since her flashback is the only one with sound. See more »

The Doctor: Now, then, you lot - Sarah, hold that down, Mickey, you hold that - 'cause you know why this TARDIS is always rattling about the place? - Rose, that, there - it's designed to have six pilots and I have to do it singlehanded - Martha, keep that level - but not anymore - Jack, there you go, steady that - now we can fly this thing-... n-no, Jackie, no, no, not you, don't touch anything, just... stand back - like it's meant to be flown!

Crazy Credits

Along with the story's first half, "The Stolen Earth" (#4.12), this episode has the longest opening-credits cast list of the modern series: six names (Tennant, Tate, Agyeman, Barrowman, Sladen and Piper) appear before the title instead of the usual two... in the same amount of time. See more »

bring back the master this sucks!!!!!
16 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The third series was superb with the Mr Saxon set up. The fourth was appalling Catherine Tate was useless with a capital U, John Barrowman was boring, Billie Piper was like The Chav Avenger, Freema Whats her face had the charisma of a Dalek Plunger. As for poor old David Tennant, in my personal opinion he is still suffering from the superb OTT performance of John Simms in the previous series. The Sontarans and the Rome episodes had potential, then it went totally Pete Tong so to speak. Bringing back Davros was inevitable, but he was disappointing and had very little to do. As for the Daleks they have have become too repetitive and caricature. Instead they are like David Walliams spurting 'The computer says no' instead of exterminate. I realise Russel T Davies is trying to reach out a new audience, instead he is alienating them!! John Simms needs to come back to liven this up again now!
