At first, the Doctor and Rose thought it was just some weird coincidence…like a song you keep hearing over and over and over again on the radio..but now they are thinking something else…but what??
[Previously on Doctor Who….] As he promised (in the last episode) the Doctor brings the TARDIS into the Dalek fleet to save Rose.
The Emperor Dalek (who successfully managed to escape from the Time War) reveals that it has been creating a new clone army using dead people and is in the last stages of taking over Earth and the Universe (Muwhahaha)
The Doctor and Jack want to rewire the station to produce a deadly Delta Wave to wipe out the Daleks. Knowing that this will destroy alot more in its path, he tricks Rose and sends her back home (ironically on the same corner that Pete Tyler died). You can tell at this moment, how much he truly loved Rose – the pain in his eyes – and the torment she goes through when she realised what is happening.
Back on Earth, Rose sees more graffiti references to Bad Wolf and realises that its her…. SHE is Bad Wolf – SHE has spread this message through time and space – a message from her future self to let her know she will save the Doctor and the world. With Mickey and Jackie’s help, she finds a way to get back to the Game Station. But not before looking into the heart of the TARDIS and absorbing all its power.
Back on the TARDIS, The Doctor and Jack realise its hopeless. It’s too late. By killing the Daleks they will kill all of Earth with it. There is nothing they can do….
“I want to see you become like me. Hail the Doctor, the Great Exterminator.”
The fight is on. Jack is cornered and inevitably exterminated while the Doctor is also surrounded. He is ready to die when the gold eyed Rose appears…
“I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words I scatter them, in time and space. A message, to lead myself here.“
The Doctor is horrified as to what Rose has done. He knows that so much power could (and is killing her).
She looks to the Emperor Dalek and is like:
“You are tiny. I can see the whole of time and space, every single atom of your existence, and I divide them.”
With a flick of her hand, POOF and The Daleks (and the Emperor) are destroyed along with their ship.
With her infinite power Rose brings Jack back to life, but she’s cannot contain it much longer.
“I think you need a Doctor” …Awwww ❤
The Doctor gives her a smooch and the energy is exchanged. He puts it back into the TARDIS where it belongs, as Rose lies unconscious in his arms. Sadly Jack gets left behind…will we see him again???
Thankfully Rose awakens with no memory of her Bad Wolf possession, but is just really happy to be reunited and safe with the Doctor. However unfortunately it’s regeneration time. The Doctor is spouting on about dogs with no noses and Rose is freaking out. Cue inspirational “Goodbye” speech:
“Timelords Have A Little Trick, A Sort Of Way Of Cheating Death. It means i’m not going to see you again, not like this, not with this daft old face, and so before i go, i just want to say. I just want to tell you, you were fantastic. And you know what, so was I”.
And with that we say goodbye to Chris Eccelston as he passes the baton ( or should I say Sonic Screwdriver ) to the 10th Doctor – David Tennant – but yes Chris you were Fantastic and a great choice to rejuvenate a new Doctor Who generation.
I was disappointed that the 9th Doctor only lasted one season. It would have been interesting to see what else he could bring to the character.
This was a great two-part send off though, taking us all through a whole range of emotions – humour, horror, sadness, happiness etc etc.
It’s always great to see the Daleks too, and whatever evil plan they have in store for us….I mean..the Doctor
