ii) broadcast anniversary
5 July 2008: broadcast of Journey's End, the last episode of Season 4 of New Who, with two Tenth Doctors, Donna Noble, Jack Harkness, Rose and Jackie Tyler, Sarah Jane Smith, Martha Jones, Mickey, Gwen, Ianto, Luke, K9 and the Daleks and Davros. After the brilliant cliff-hanger of the previous week, when it looked as if Ten was about to regenerate, I was really disappointed by this, though we had had fair warning that RTD couldn't really manage his own finales the previous year. The bit that worked best for me was the dramatic and tragic end to Donna's story, though I know others are more attracted to Handy and Rose heading off together into the sunset.
