  • The doctor takes Rose 5 billion years in the future to witness the destruction of the (now abandoned) earth. Aliens from all around come to witness the spectacle. And of course, someone tries to ruin the party.

    When I wrote the review of the pilot I wondered what the fuzz was all about. This episode surprised me - in a great way. Because it was marvellous. The plot was imaginative and entertaining and I even liked Rose - how she had to cope with all the weirdness and finally the destruction of earth and how all the troubles of mankind seem so vain. Like the doctor says in the beginning: "You lot. You spend all your time thinking about dying. Like you`re gonna get killed by eggs or beef or global warming or else whatnot."
    Apropos doctor: He has many great scenes in this episodes and I am really happy with Ecclestones performance.
