Liveblog Doctor Who S04E13 Journey’s End By Russell T Davies

I am liveblogging each episode of Doctor Who as I watch it. I am publishing a raw stream of consciousness list of things I am considering and wondering about as I watch. In the interest of not spoiling anything for anyone I am putting all of it behind the jump.

This episode is the thirteenth episode of Season Four (or Thirty depending who you ask), called Journey’s End. From the site: As Davros and the Daleks threaten the entire universe, the Doctor’s companions join forces. But the prophecy declares that one of them will die…

* Nice recap there at the start.
* Regenerating? But then what? And the hand?
* Why is he the same? Oh how are you gonna explain this?
* Horry clap! Mickey and Jackie? How does he know who she is?
* We Smiffs gotta stick together! I kinda miss Mickey the idiot!
* Not sure I miss Jackie, or that blue eyeshadow. We’ll see how the old girl does.
* Bullets all stopped? weird ripples? Is it time or what?
* So he didn’t have to CHANGE just use the energy. Neat!
* I don’t care if they are reunited, I didn’t like the two of them that much.
* Ultimate defense? Tosh totally saved their asses? I am even more sad now that she is gone…
* Temporal prison? That’s bad mmkay?
* Taking the TARDIS to the Crucible? WTF is the Crucible?
* You go Sarah Jane! She’s mighty nervy I’ll give her that.
* Mickey smooching his weapon. Hee!
* Ohhhh Martha. Are you doing something stupid that will get you in trouble again?
* Those Daleks sound really weird. Because they’re yelling EXTERMINATE in German?
* What was the future? It wash the darknesh.
* I do like this Rose a bit better though, at least she’s contributing.
* All timelines converge on Donna? Interesting.
* I’m a temp from Chissick!
* Send Jack as the Doctor! They don’t know! They’ve seen you with ten different faces right?
* Donna? Are you ok? What’s going on in that brilliant little head of yours?
* You were brilliant Donna! I told you!
* Do they know everyone’s in there? Can’t they hang one back or something?
* Don’t go Donna. STAY INSIDE!
* What are you hearing? A heartbeat?
* Ohhhhhhhhhh crap. Timelord Treachery? That’d be a good band.
* The Crucible has a heart? Is that what she’s hearing?
* Oh Donna. No no no no o no no no no no no no
* You can do it Donna. I don’t know what but you will do it.
* Ohhhhhhh what is that gonna do to her? She’s not a Timelord…
* What do you call a female Timelord? Timelady? Is she a Timelord too?
* Oh yes. You’re naked! Oh yes.
* Come on nekkid Doctor!!!!!
* Ohhhhhhh no no no no no no no no no. NO!
* Not Jack! Oh wait.
* Come on Jack, you can pull it out too! There’s my boy! I saw that wink!
* All repaired? He’s a bit…intense…now.
* Unique? Hmm. I love that hand! Hee!
* Oi watch it earth girl! Heee!
* You are kidding me! OMG LOL!
* That’s disgusting! hahahahaha!
* He’s interesting this way.
* You think you’re not worth it.
* I like that he can peek at her thoughts.
* All coming together eh? I wonder what all is coming together.
* Hello Martha! I’m sure if you find a guard you’ll get good and captured.
* Incinerate! Incinerate! Ohhhh Jack.
* Oh look! Humans!
* Yeah I’m full of exclamation points for this.
* Not doing the nostalgia tour, heh. Good!
* You’re not in charge of the Daleks are you? Play him Doctor!
* Dalek’s pet? Can’t they have a puppy?
* Prophecies of Dalek Crazy? Is he the one from S1?
* How did Dalek Crazy see all this?
* The Doctor and his precious Children of Time?
* His true self? He’s hiding somehow?
* How did Sarah get a thingy that opens the door? I should be watching that show.
* Oh whatever, Jackie is gonna be fine and you all know it!
* A single string? Of Planets? Oh that sounds bad mmkay?
* I am glad Mickey the idiot gets along with Jackie.
* They all dissolve? Why? How? What good is that?
* What did it do? Sort of dissolved them? Like Rose did to the Daleks?
* But what does it benefit the Daleks to empty everything from…everything?
* Ohhhhh if they are it they are supreme. But how does that work?
* That’s beefcake. And that’s enough hugging. Heee!
* What is that Sarah? A warp star? Innnnnteresting.
* OK Martha what are you gonna do? Give them a chance? The Doctor gives them a chance.
* Don’t argue with me Doctor! She has a point.
* Calling all Dalek boys and girls! I love you Jack.
* Davros sees Sarah again, interesting.
* What’s the matter with the Doctor?
* Ohhh, this is what he has done to them. That is kind of sad, I guess.
* OMG! How did it zap them all there?
* More importantly how did it NOT zap Donna? Are they just not looking for her because she “died”?
* OMG I think Davros is off his meds! HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!
* OMG! Yes again!
* What now? He’s zapped too!
* Do it Donna!
* Oh crap. Donna has to be ok! Please!
* Human biological matter crisis? Crosses? OK whatever. Still sucks that he died.
* Come on Donna! Do something!
* Did she get part Doctor in there somewhere?
* D’you wanna bet timeboy? Oh I like this Donna!
* Oh she did get some Doctor. Yay!
* Skinny boys in suits! heee!
* Little bit of human, hooray!
* Yes, more exclamation points. I like her!
* You go Mickey!
* Wait, if she’s part Doctor is that how she “died”?
* HA!
* I can’t tell you what I’m thinking right now. Oh I can Captain Jack. And it’s HOT!
* Did Dalek Crazy double cross? Oh he did!
* Prophecy must complete?
* Has he seen the end of everything or everything Dalek?
* It is kind of sad to watch him take them all down, even though I know it had to happen.
* Yay Torchwood! You’re ok!
* Is this extra Doctor the one that dies?
* You are the destroyer of worlds? After he tried to save you?
* They leave and he says “One will still die…”
* K-9 knows the base code? Hooray!
* No Jackie no, not you. LOL!
* I wonder why the TARDIS is supposed to have six pilots?
* I love you Ianto Jones!
* I love watching a blue call box tow a planet. This is fantastic!
* This could get VERY interesting for the two of them from now on.
* I kind of like them all together though I must say.
* Rose gets to meet the others who’ve heard so much about her.
* Go Grampy Wilf! Do that dance!
* Yay Sarah! I’d like another adventure with her now I think.
* Why is Mickey gonna miss Jackie?
* No teleport? Hrm.
* Maybe there IS something else Martha could be doing? He’s short a Doctor after all.
* Oooh, maybe Mickey and Martha go Torchwood? Smith and Jones together again?
* I like this new Mickey! See ya boss.
* That’s me when we first met. It isn’t though.
* She gets her own Doctor as a companion? That seems….wrong. And weird.
* Here Rose, let me leave you a ME as your boyfriend? That just seems…wrong.
* I have never been disappointed yet in an episode but I am now. Really?
* Binary binary binary binary? What happened?
* Is she deteriorating?
* Oh noes.
* I thought the half human Doctor was the one who died. Is it Donna?
* He’s taking all of that away from her?
* You are kiddding me. All gone? Just like that!? Tragic.
* “But she was better with you!” Yes she was, Grampy Wilf. Yes she was.
* I like DoctorDonna better. This Donna’s not someone I enjoy.
* Doctor’s got no one now. Again.
* “Every night, Doctor, when it gets dark, and the stars come out, I’ll look up. On her behalf. I’ll look up at the sky and think of you.” What a perfectly lovely man.
* Off he goes, alone again. I do like the nice wide shot of the TARDIS though. It’s good to get a little goodbye there as well.

Well that’s it then. I still don’t like the bit about Rose, but at least now she’s sealed off in another universe so I don’t have to worry about her ever coming back. Right? RIGHT? All the Rose stuff is too soap-y, I watch soaps for that. Gimme aliens and brilliant Timelords and Grampy Wilf instead!
