    Yet another good episode, but there was something missing IMO, a lot more could have been done with it. However, the story was OK and the acting was done to near perfection. Oh, and the Bad Wolf Music as the doctor stepped through the fans was a nice touch, and that music, IMO, reflects how the ninth doctor acts and his personality.

    Rating: 7/10

    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    Yay end of the world the episode where half the budget was spent on it. I thought it was quite a good episode and it was the first time that we realise the the Doctor is
    Spoiler:
    The Last of the Time Lords
    .
    I liked the Moxx of Balhoon the Face of Boe and the Trees were good although I didnt like Cassandra because well She was just a flap of skin which was annoying plus I had my friends shouting at me for weeks shouting 'Moisturise me!!!'. I give this ep 7/10.
    Oh Yes the Sam is Back and hes more Sci-fied up than ever !!!!!!!!!

    Do you look like a large flap of skin that commands people alot
    Anyway, i'd rate this a steady:

    8/10,

    I found the special effects through the roof (Good!), I like the "Ancient relics of Earth" the last human brought it. Although, I found the managers incompetence rather...interesting, and those little spider-arachnids annoyed me.

    Well im more of a Whovian than my mates are and it was subsequently the first episode they saw of the new season so they just found it all one big joke. Well except for the bits with the Doc crying and stuff which were cool in their retrospective.

    The End of the World, after the uneven feel of "Rose" made me think "Now that's more like it!" While I would not call this episode perfect, or even the best this series had to offer, it's such a joyous return of Doctor Who to it's form that I probably give this some points it might have otherwise not garner. For instance, I would normally have to take points off for the Galaxy Quest style fans blocking the way to the reset switch... but so much else in this episode just so works.

    That last scene, with the Doctor telling of the fate of Gallifrey... that was pure magic. That was Doctor Who.

    8/10

    Just watched it tonight. Certainly thought provoking. I liked it.

    I liked this ep a lot. Very strong opening for Dr. Who, the New Series. True, the Galaxy Quest-type bits were hokey, but unlike the 'crushy things' from nowhere, I felt that it was legitimate for there to be a mechanical challenge at the power generation center of the station.

    Two Dr.Who eps back to back... I thought the first episode is great, and here I find the second ep equally as great as the first one. It gets better and better... and the End of the World, at that! Really cool.

    For the noobs in the series, this episode gives out bits of info about who Dr.Who is
    Spoiler:
    a/ He is a Time Lord b/He is the last of his kind c/he was involved in a time war and was in a ship that fought in it d/ his planet (Gillafrey) destroyed and reduced to rocks and dust, like Earth.
    Kudos to the writers! And the part about Dr.Who on the verge of tears when reminded of his people and the fate of his planet... good acting in favor of Chris Eccleston, IMO. Definitely warming up the doctor to the audience.

    I like Rose's reactions in this episode. Her doubts about accompanying Dr.Who in this adventure, coupled with the fact that she is witnessing Earth's demise in the future, are all normal and believable.

    I'd rate this show 8.5/10.

    And yeah, that flap of skin! What a B. Reminds me of neurotic, narcisstic women who thinks plastic surgery is the solution to all beauty problems. Gah!

    Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice
    From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice.

    Zoe Wanamaker as Cassandra was the highlight of this ep for me. There were some great characters in this episode but she was deinately my favourite.

    Love this episode, all the thing with the end of Earth. Definitely enjoy the reaction of Rose to Casandra. The I-pod presentation was just hilarious. Very cool episode.
    They hit us with guns, bazookas, tear gas, tanks, APVs, helicopters, rockets. I'm pretty sure at least one of them used really harsh language.

    Did Casandra even die, I was thinking about it and wasn't that her brain in the Jar below. What if it was just her mouth piece that got distroyed?

    Also if your goal is to prolong your life then a state where you must be moisterised constantly is not the way you would go, I wouldn't be surprised if that just turn out to be a fasade

    Well this was my first exposure to Dr. Who. It's officially one of the strangest shows I've ever seen. I kinda liked it. Very odd.

    See, if I'd been there, I would have been singing along with the song. THAT would have drawn some looks, I'm sure. hehe

    It's too bad about Jabe, though, I liked her. Might be nice to see more of the tree people and their world some day. NOT Earth.
