    Personally, this was the high point of the season, Captain Jack, The Doctor, and Rose, all showed who they truely are. Jack, the brave, selfless soldier. the Doctor, the man who will never hurt an innocent, and who would do anything for love. Rose, the woman who would do anything for anybody, no matter what.

    I cannot fault this episode, so I am giving it 10/10

    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.

    The perfect end to a triumphant new season. Fantastic, fabulous episode. The battles, the goodbyes, the silent "EX-TER-MI-NATE", the special effects, Emergency Program 1, the Bad Wolf, and the end of the Time War. Cap it all off with a glorious regenaration, and you have a flawless end.

    10/10.

    The scenes with the Dalek armada are stunning and the emergency programme bit is nice and touching. This episode has the best score as well, the music when Rose returns to the platform is fantastic. Definitely the best regeneration in the series too.

    My wife, a massive Buffy fan who kind of grudingly watched the first episode and then moved through pretending to still dislike it to conceeding it was alright kept breaking into tears throughout this ep (the Doctor betrays Rose, Emergency Program One, Jack's death, "You Were Fantastic and, you know what, so was I") and declared at the end "I haven't felt this way about television since Becoming Part Two" ... which is high praise indeed, coming from her.

    That's high praise indeed. Becoming was spectacular. It's impressive that the new Who hit that mark in it's first series.

    BTW... what are you doing here?

    Wow, this episode was just incredible. I nearly cried my eyes out when the Doctor wanted Rose to be safe and trapped her in the TARDIS for her own good. The look on his face, the painful cry in her voice. Damn, that's good television.

    Couldnt agree more, loved this episode 10 times more second time around, nearly broke down to tears when he sent her back. Deep television that, Russell T Davies is a genious "*turns head to Rose* have a good life" brilliant

    This episode was brilliant all around. It's been two weeks for me and I'm still heartbroken. I know he's still the Doctor, but it just won't be the same without Christopher Eccleston.

    I thought Billie did an amazing job with the vortex running through her. Plus, the scene where she tells her mom that she's the one who was with Pete was very moving.

    I'm a shipper and I have to say, I squeed when the Doctor kissed her. Loved it.

    I can't believe I went from "this is so-so" to complete and utter love in 13 episodes of this show.

    Good morning everyone.
    My name is Trader Joe and, though I have been lurking on this board for four years, this is my first post.

    I just re-watched TPOTW and was wondering how much of that was Rose talking and how much, if any, was the TARDIS.

    I only wonder because of the was Rose was talking. (i.e. strange voice, refering to him as "My Doctor", entire time stream running through her head, that kind of thing.) She showed more affection for him at that time then she ever had before in the series.


    Well, that's it for now.

    Well I always thought The Doctor and the T.A.R.D.I.S had a kind of connection, so it wouldn't surprise me if it was the T.A.R.D.I.S *weird* Although I guess it was part of the whole BW thing so who knows, it's all speculation I think.

    Fantastic episode and yet so sad. I knew they were changing Doctors at the end of the season and hated to see Christopher Eccleston go. I really liked him.

    Man this episode was tense, especially in the final minutes. I didn’t know how they were going to pull it off but great resolution. I don’t know what the Daleks were like in the previous series (I’ve read where some people didn’t find them all that scary), but they were downright menacing in this one.

    I’m new to DW, but I may have to seriously consider buying this season on DVD. It had some of the best episodes of any television show I’ve seen in a while.
    IMO always implied.

    Wow...this was a very emotive and exciting episode! Emergency Program 1 was my favorite, I think. I was so scared when Jack got shot! I'm glad he's alive. BTW, did Jack have a thing for the Doctor, or is he just an affectionate guy?

    Great episode!

    Fantastic episode! Living in the US, I grew up with Doctor Who, and that's the first time I've seen the Doctor regenerate standing up.

    Off topic, but did anyone else have a problem with the commercial breaks every five minutes?

    I loved this episode! Great setup in the first part last week, which totally paid off in this week's finale.

    Well....the Daleks screeching Exterminte....Exterminate.....Exterminate....was plenty annoying. But otherwise, this was great stuff.

    I was totally clueless as to many of the plot points and was shocked when Jack was killed (and then came back). And they left him there I love Jack. I hope we see him again.

    Rose's union with the Tardis was unexpected and it was very satisfying to know that she was the source of the "Bad Wolf" clue that had been following them thru time. Kind of happy that the Doctor is the only one who remembers, though..I like Rose the way she is.

    I was on the edge of my seat the whole hour and the end was brilliant. I knew CE was being replaced but didn't know it happened in this episode. His demise was as sad as his rebirth was uplifting.

    I sure hope Scifi is going to show S2 of this show. If not, I'm going to have to find other means.
