Did You Know?


The scene where Luke is saved is part of an in-joke, according to Russell T. Davies. In the first series of The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007), none of the children characters looked where they were going whilst crossing the road. See more »


When the Doctor visits Rose at the end of the episode, she tells him the date is "2005, January 1st". Rose then runs into a building where on the glass by the doorway is a sticker stating "NO SMOKING. It is against the law to smoke on these premises." This type of sticker only appeared after the smoking ban in England came into force on 1st July 2007, two and a half years after it appears in Rose's building. See more »

Russell T Davies really exceeded himself this time...
25 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

...he actually managed to write a story even *worse* than Last of the Timelords! Where should I even begin? Firstly, the resolution to the entire cliffhanger from the first episode is stupid. If I didn't know that RTD was completely incapable of any kind of subtlety, I could've assumed that the double-cop-out was a parody of itself. Secondly, the Master's entire back-story is retconned into something completely idiotic involving the drumming in his head (which I thought was a load of bull when it was first introduced anyway). Lastly, there's loads of the Doctor bawling and the whole thing feels like a send-off pandering more to the Tennant fan girls than all Doctor Who fans in general.

I wish the time-traveling astronaut had gone back in time to shoot HIM instead! I must admit though, this episode is definitely an appropriate send-off for RTD himself; just like his entire tenure as the producer, it is dumb, badly written and infuriatingly melodramatic.
