Doomsday [Jul. 9th, 2006|11:18 am]
Tony Grist
A lot of Whovians hated Rose and her family. John Pertwee, they protest,  never got all huggy and kissy with his companions and their hangers-on. I take the line that the new show is a reinvention not a reproduction and personally I rather like having my emotions played like a zither.

I guessed the denouement. I knew there had to be some reason for introducing that parallel universe and by the end (or rather, just before the end) I'd worked out what it was.  I've liked the story arc in this season.
 
And even though I knew how it was going to pan out, I liked the way it was done.  It could have been slushy and unconvincing and groan-making and it wasn't. Russell T Davies is a damn good writer.

I'll miss Billie Piper. She's marvellous.

Yeah, I thought so too, and even the rescue by Pete was very deux ex machina and didn't seem to make sense in the context of the science we HAD got during the episode.

I was quite puzzled by how he guessed from his universe that he was needed to rescue Rose, or where exactly he should appear to do so, I must say. I suppose we're meant to think that he and Jackie simply decided together to over-ride Rose's decision to stay with the doctor, and that it was just luck that the outcome of their decision was that she didn't get sucked into the Void.

Still, on the whole I really enjoyed the episode, and thought it brought a number of hanging threads together very satisfactorily.
