Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways Preview

Bad Wolf/ Parting of the Ways was the two part finale to the 2005 season of Doctor Who. It starred Christopher Ecclestone, Billie Piper and John Barrowman. It also sees the resolution of the ‘Bad Wolf’ plot arc that had been present throughout the season.

The TARDIS crew find themselves in futuristic equivalents of reality TV shows, onboard a space station. Separated and confused, the Doctor and Jack eventually meet and go to the stations control room, where they are greeted by the cybernetic Controller. Rose, while appearing on ‘The Weakest Link’, has appeared to have been disintegrated after failing to win the round. However, the Controller reveals that the contestants are instead sent to a point in space – this turns out to be a Dalek fleet. The episode ends with the Dalek fleet preparing to invade Earth with Rose trapped on board. This cliff-hanger is resolved in the following episode, ‘Parting of the Ways’ which was Ecclestone’s last episode in the role.

So join us on Wednesday at 8.00pm for this 2005 two-parter. Hope to see you there.
