Did You Know?


The final scene with Jack was written to include dialogue between him and the Doctor which playfully poked fun at the John Barrowman voice-over accompanying each episode of Torchwood (2006). This was removed because it was felt to be too metatextual. See more »


At 3pm, Jack pulls his chains out of the wall, but they are still attached to his arms. When he runs into the soldiers and puts his hands up, the chains have disappeared. See more »


Toclafane: But then the Master came with his wonderful time machine to bring us back home.
Professor Doherty: But that's a paradox. If you're the future of the human race, and you've come back to murder your ancestors. You should cancel yourselves out. You shouldn't exist!
Martha Jones: And that's the paradox machine.

cop-out ending
10 May 2008 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

It's been a year since the events of 'the Sound of Drums' and Martha is still traveling the world on her quest to defeat the Master, while the aged and beaten Doctor is still held captive by the Master as is Captain Jack. Haven taken over Earth, now the Master sets his eye upon Universal conquest and it's come down to Martha to stop him. An overall solid & chilling episode of Doctor, sadly Who severely negated by a BS cop-out ending that left an atrocious taste in my mouth. Sad really as the two previous parts to this particular story were topnotch. Oh well, on to next series I guess.

My Grade: C-
