A Matter of Time: Doomsday

DOCTOR: David Tennant
COMPANIONS: Billie Piper

STORY: The Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler are in the middle of a gigantic war between the two fiercest species in the entire universe, the Daleks and the Cybermen. Soon Rose must make the decision of her life, because the walls between worlds are beginning to close once more. Will she choose to live in the parallel world with her mother, father and boyfriend, or stay with the Doctor? Both worlds are full of blood and death, and she may have no choice…

• The concept of the Daleks and Cybermen appearing together on screen first originated in December 1967, when the BBC approached Terry Nation to have both races in a story, but Nation vetoed this idea.
• The production team had many discussions over who would rescue Rose, with Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner wanting Pete to rescue her, while Noel Clarke and Phil Collinson wanted Mickey.
• To ensure that Noel Clarke and Shaun Dingwall were available for filming, the story was filmed in the season's third production block with ‘Rise of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Age of Steel’.
