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 »


When Martha contacts the Crucible the way she is holding the key changes between shots from inside the station and the view screen on the crucible. See more »


The Doctor: I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble, a thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her, while she can never remember. And for one moment... one shining moment... she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.
Sylvia Noble: She still is. She's my daughter.
The Doctor: Then maybe you should tell her that once in a while.

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 »

A thoroughly satisfying conclusion to this season
5 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Journey's End" is a marvellously satisfying finale to this latest season. Russell T. Davies pulls out all the stops to tie up the loose ends and unfinished business from previous seasons in a manner that should please the majority of fans. Dramatic, moving and humorous, this story contains all that is special about the "new" series.

While Davros is somewhat underused in this tale, it remains a terrifically faithful return of this old nemesis and we see his most ambitious plans to-date unfold.

This longer-than-usual installment is a joy from beginning to end. A taste of the Christmas special will keep viewers counting the days 'til the 25th December when we will be reacquainted with another old enemy.

10 out of 10. Splendid.
