The Doctor and his companions prepare to do battle with Davros and the Daleks who are out to destroy everything and everyone in the universe other than themselves. All seems lost when the Daleks apparently destroy the TARDIS but it's not that simple as an empowered Donna - and a new version of the Doctor - take control and face the Dalek menace head on. For one of the Doctor's companions however, there will be a heavy price to pay.

The prophesy must complete!

Along with the story's first half, "The Stolen Earth" (#4.12), this episode has the longest opening-credits cast list of the modern series: six names (Tennant, Tate, Agyeman, Barrowman, Sladen and Piper) appear before the title instead of the usual two... in the same amount of time. See more
In the version edited for time to allow for commercials on BBC America, all the scenes set in Germany are cut up to the moment when she enters the Osterhagen station there. The appearance of Valda Aviks
as "German woman" is thus removed, but she remains credited in the remastered credits. Also cut is Rose asking what the Doctor almost said to her before in Bad Wolf Bay and being told by his human clone, the Doctor's specific warning of the consequences of Donna remembering, and Wilfred's vow to remember for her. Despite these last two omissions, the revised silent dematerialization remains applied. See more
