The Doctor soon realizes that the Time Lords are trying to return and re-establish Gallifrey. If they succeed, it is the end of time and the Doctor as we currently know him. Realizing that the Ood's prophecy will come true, he visits friends from the recent past. Written by

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
