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

Did You Know?


The original script contained the following dialogue for the scene in The Crucible. Rose: "So how was that sentence going to end?" The Doctor: "Which one?" Rose: The one that started with 'Rose Tyler'?" The Doctor: "''s cold out.'" Rose: "Seriously!" The Doctor: "Does it really need saying?" Rose: "Yes." Davros: "Such intimacy with your companions, Doctor. So different from the man I once knew." See more »


If as shown on screen the emergency temporal shift only carries one person, how would Dalek Caan turning up on Davros' command ship in the time war get Davros out of the time war? In order for this to happen, there would have to be a second emergency temporal shift generator in Davros' chair. See more »


Davros: The man who abhors violence, never carrying a gun, but this is the truth, Doctor: you take ordinary people and you fashion them into weapons... behold your Children of Time, transformed into murderers. I made the Daleks, Doctor, you made this.
The Doctor: I'm trying to help.
Davros: Already I have seen them sacrificed today, for their beloved Doctor. The Earth woman who fell opening the Sub Wave Network.
The Doctor: Who was that?
Rose Tyler: Harriet Jones. She gave her life to get you here.
[flashback of Harriet Jones]
Davros: How many more? Just...

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 »

Alternate Versions

In the version edited for time to allow for commercials on BBC America, all the scenes set in Germany are cut up to the moment when she enters the Osterhagen station there. The appearance of Valda Aviks as "German woman" is thus removed, but she remains credited in the remastered credits. Also cut is Rose asking what the Doctor almost said to her before in Bad Wolf Bay and being told by his human clone, the Doctor's specific warning of the consequences of Donna remembering, and Wilfred's vow to remember for her. Despite these last two omissions, the revised silent dematerialization remains applied. See more »

bring back the master this sucks!!!!!
16 July 2008 | by nwestwood1See 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!
