“This the story of how i died.”
The last episode of the current series, and what an episode. The Daleks vs The Cybermen. A very poignant episode for lots of reasons. Without trying to give too much away the Cyberman have taken over the earth and the Daleks show up for their own reasons. 4 Daleks against 5 million Cybermen. The Cybermen offered the Daleks an alliance, which was refused. Which led to the best line of the episode. To paraphrase, the Daleks said to the Cybermen, “The only thing you are are superior at, is dying.”
There are some quite amusing moments which don’t seem to distract from the action. An emotion-filled episode like this one needed some lighter moments for balance.
David Tennant is proving to be excellent in the role. Not quite as “angry” as Ecclestone, but still conveys the “alienness” of the Doctor. Then anger is still there but not so explicit in this one.
The departure of Rose was one of the most emotional things I have seen on TV for a very long time. The Doctor showing how “human” he is becoming. And after that, the set up for the next series made me laugh out loud.
The tension was kept well throughout the episode and all in all a worthy ending to what had been an excellent series.
