A fan's comment on Doomsday

Thank you Rose Tyler

This blog will contain spoilers. Quite a number of them.

The final episode of this season of Dr. Who was entitled "Doomsday". In it we have the Earth being invaded by its two greatest enemies, and the two enemies of the Doctor, the Daleks and the Cybermen. A breach between two universes takes place and at first Earth is totally unaware, thinking it to be a good thing, thank you Torchwood. However it is a bad thing and the Earth is in mortal danger. It is only the work of the Doctor, Mickey, Rose, Pete Tyler and Jackie Tyler to save both worlds. They do, however Rose is transported to the other Earth, where she must stay.

This episode marks the final appearance of Rose Tyler as a companion of the Doctor. She ends having saved both planets. What else do we expect from a companion of the Doctor?

I want to say thank you to Billie Piper for her role in the revival of Doctor Who. She was a tremendous companion, one who broke the mould and set the path for other companions to follow. No longer would the companion be simply the straight person or being the classic damsel in distress. Rose was the Doctor's equal in many ways. She took charge and revealed a strength that was truly amazing. Billie Piper made this character come alive and for that we are thankful.

One other thing about Rose, only Rose could elicit an emotional response from the Doctor. She was amazing.

So thank you Billie, thank you for making Rose come alive and for being a part of the two finest seasons in the long history of Doctor Who.
One more thing, 170 days until the Christmas Doctor Who Special, which will be entitled The Runaway Bride.
