    When Rose finally reunites with the Doctor. Such a relief.

    Yeah absolutely agreed on the Tardis, but the journey there was cool.

    I liked both parts very much. I agree - part one more than two, but still both were excellent.

    Great to see Rose in command and running things. The Dr's dialogue with the Beast was awesome. Only bummer - I think everyone knew the Tardis would be there to save him.

    Spoilers for The End of Time:

    Spoiler:
    Rassilon makes mention of some weapon in the Doctor's hands which he could use to destroy both sides; I heard 'the Moog' or 'the Mood', but... ETA: The Moment, apparently, which is much better.



    I am still going with my theory that it was a Delta Wave


    In Parting Of The Ways the Doctor explained that an unrefined wave would destroy both the Earth and the Daleks... And I think this makes sense. Maybe that incarnation of the Doctor in the Time War did this...

    oh. the time war was a huge war.
    Spoiler:
    i fell sad for the doctor having to destroy his own people having to live knowing his the last and then the daleks keep returning when he thought he destroyed them. if it was me i would be angry because he destroyed his people and in the end it seemed like it was for nothing

    I think the universe was losing, really. Daleks vs Time Lords, the most unspeakable weapons imaginable (and then some), and vast swathes of collateral damage cut through history.

    yes i think thats right. i think he explained that in the end it came down to the only way for everyone to be safe was for him to destroy both partys of the war. did that mean that the time lords were losing

A unimaginably difficult burden to be sure.

    But then again Satan could well have been lying but I don't think so because he seemed to be playing on fears in his rant.

    I think Satan left a small part (the animal, instinctual part) of himself back in the Pit inside his real body. The cunning and intellect were transferred to Toby, I thought. The two parts of his consciousness would be connected through a powerful telepathy, like the Ood. He knew that at some level that the Doctor would never voluntarily free him so he need to hitch a ride in a human's body to get back to Earth.

And if Rassilon had found out there was something older than time, he would definitely have scrubbed it from the record; after all, something that doesn't belong to time is outside the control of the Time Lords and that's not on.

    Actually no there are things like the Devil that the Timelords fear. One example is the Fendahl.. They feared it so much they erased its homeworld from time. See episode "Image Of The Fendahl"


    When Satan said
    "This one knows me, as I know him: the killer of his own kind."

    That had me intrigued. So the Doctor is the killer of the Timelords in the war. Wonder what he did? Did he use a delta wave or something like that that kills everything to fight the Daleks?

    Also if Toby was posessed where was his mind? If the Beast's body had no mind it should not have been able to move like it did or roar or anything unless there was the tiniest spark of mind still there. Where did Toby's mind go?

    Brilliant two part episode ruined by the following lame "love & Monsters"

    Just watched this episode yesterday on ukgold for the 2nd time. It really is a great episode and I never noticed how good the cgi was, it's just creatures they need to improve on.
