Doomsday endnotes

July 10th, 2006 (11:27 am)

More points worth mentioning - the resurrection of the soldier-Doctor with the revelation that the Doctor fought on the front line at the fall of Arcadia, and the evident additional respect he receives from Mickey as a result, together with the increasing likelihood that the Time Lords are going to emerge from the woodwork (dimensionally transcendental, of course).

Jackie's 'There's never been anyone else' is something she believes at that moment, but the expressions of Mickey and the Doctor convey the audience's disbelief. Fun - but at the same time Jackie consigns her estate self to the dustbin. This Jackie is matured in a way that the alt-Jackie never was, and we are led to assume that she will be a better partner for Pete; I wonder, too, if Jackie's outfit in the beach scene was deliberately reminiscent of that worn by Romana in 'Destiny of the Daleks'. I wouldn't put any obscure reference past this production team...

I do hope we see the return of the Time Lords at some point and that the Daleks and Cybermen aren't gone for good.

I suspect that the cybermen created in our universe would not have been sucked in- also the black Dalek said something about emergency time transfer (or something similar) so they can easily be resurrected.

I wouldn't be entirely surprised by the return of the timelords- I wonder if the doctor's granddaughter Susan might be ressurected too?

I'd love to know what is planned for the next series.

The Black Dalek inherited the tendency of Davros to escape at the end of 1980s stories. Perhaps there is another pocket of Daleks somewhere at the end of his 'temporal shift' - perhaps in another period of human history?

Terrance Dicks said when he came to Oxford in February that he regrets the absence of the Time Lords from the new series. As he was one of the people who introduced them to the programme this isn't surprising; but everyone seems to expect the message of the Face of Boe, when it is revealed next year, to be 'You are not alone'.
