Today’s Episode: Doomsday
Writer: Russell T. Davies
That was a flipping roller coaster, and that is HOW a season ends. Although it is a difficult episode to go back and re-watch, it is a great one as it really firms up theories about the 50th Anniversary timeline.
One thing I love about Who is that there is always an arc to the season, and the seasons I have completed watching for this marathon thus far..
Season One: Bad Wolf
Season Two: Torchwood
There are many great moments in Doomsday like this one between the Daleks and the Cybermen…
Don’t forget about this one too..
Then Rose gets all sassy about how she killed the Emperor, and then they realized that the Doctor was there after making Rose identify him, and they were like “oh no!” you didn’t just mention him!
It is so hard though.. when you see the Doctor acting all happy.. once he managed to get Parerll Pete and Jackie hooked up, and when he explains about void stuff..
To him telling Rose that she can’t stay with him and sends her to Pete’s World, and she vows to stay with him, its obious that it hurts him to do so, but he knows she must go. He is irrated with her when she comes back, but once the get the manga clamps on, and the Daleks and Cybermen head into the void.. he is happy not to do this alone until the leaver slips…. and it looks like she gets sucked in..
That scene afterwards with Rose and the Doctor against the wall..
I found this little tidbit as well.. and I’m on David’s side..
Then we have bad wolf bay.. lordy can my heart hurt even more?? Must you keep stomping on it RTD??? MUST YOU?? NO! You decide to leave Rose TYLER without a response to her declaration of love..
Luckily.. there is fan fic! My favorite fan fic is quite interesting.. and not for everyone, as it does got well.. a bit smutty. I discovered Archive of Our Own… and found this great writer KelKat9 and her theory of what happened if Rose accidentally dimension hopped into a parallel universe where there are still time lords and the Doctor was basically running the earth? Check it out here..
So I leave you with this great scene (Sorry about it not being captioned) but its right after Nine became Ten, and helps Rose explain why they went back to the estate, rather than Barcelona (the planet) which kinda mystified me until I saw it. Shows you how much he loved her even after regenerating.
Goodbye Season Two!! I shall miss you Rose!!
