17 / THE DOC­TOR’S EX­PEN­SIVE GOOD­BYE

DOC­TOR WHO, DOOMS­DAY (2006)

Empire (UK) - - CINEMAS -

There have been many as­sis­tants and sev­eral Doc­tors, but few have the magic of the tenth (David Ten­nant) and his Rose (Bil­lie Piper). Their re­la­tion­ship arc peaked in Dooms­day — the fi­nale of Sea­son 2. The episode fea­tured a first: Daleks and Cy­ber­men to­gether on screen, fight­ing an epic bat­tle (ba­si­cally a proto Bat­man v Su­per­man). There’s only one man to save the world, but the cost is heavy as Rose is trapped in a par­al­lel uni­verse. Cue ugly tears and a heart-shred­ding farewell via tele­por­ta­tion — “I’m burn­ing up a sun just to say good­bye.”
