Doctor Who: Doomsday

The finale of the second season of the new series was excellent.

At first I didn’t like the humor of the Cult of Skaro Daleks, but I’m with it now.  I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the new-this-season Cybermen battle cry of “DELETE”, though.

Here are some thoughts that are nagging me (beware spoilers):

  • The Cybermen created in ‘this’ universe may still be around because they may not have void dust on them.  However, it is possible that the metal and augmentations used to create them could be from the alternate universe, so I’ll take it either way.
  • If there is a Torchwood in the alternate universe, then there must be a Doctor in the other universe.  Torchwood is created as a result of his involvment, right?  Would be interesting to see a spinoff episode or two where the alternate-universe-meddling-timelord meets up with Rose.
  • Is the new series Torchwood in this universe?  I hope the Doctor visits.
  • With this effects budget, when are we going to get a tour of the TARDIS?
  • The icon/badge/designation that the Daleks wear under their eyestalks: they are new with the Christopher Eccleston season, right?  In Doomsday I noticed that two of them differed.  Also, the casings of the Cult of Skaro Daleks were not uniform.  Really cool.

    Hi, hopefully my observations could put some of the things that are nagging you to rest. The Cybermen are definitely not still around because they were soaked in void stuff. They followed the void ship through the hole in reality that Torchwood made bigger. The only way they could have followed the void ship was to travel through the void.

    Also, there is definitely only one Doctor. That Rose and the Doctor had to split up (at least to me) was nothing short of devastating. It would be nice for both Rose and the Doctor to reunite in some way. However, I think we have been braced for their split since the beginning. After all, everything has it’s time and everything dies or ends. I don’t think there could be an alternate Doctor, there wasn’t even an alternate Rose. Besides, the Doctor isn’t human, he is a Time Lord. The Universe is only big enough for one Doctor anyway.

    I hope you feel less nagged!
