S1-E13 The Parting of the Ways



If you’re craving a Saturday-night fix of timey-wimey sci-fi, look no further than The Big Bang, the head-scratching season finale from 2010. The Doctor is sealed in the Pandorica, Amy has been killed by an Auton-centurion duplicate of Rory, River is trapped in an exploding Tardis and, to cap it all, the cosmos collapses… Yet lead writer Steven Moffat demolishes these dramatic dead-ends with bamboozling brio and reboots the universe.

A stone Dalek comes to life in a museum, Amy meets her younger self, the Doctor goofs about with a mop and a fez, and the Ponds at last get spliced – with something simultaneously old, new, borrowed and blue turning up at their wedding.


Part two of two. The Doctor's friendship with Rose is put to the ultimate test as Earth is plunged into all-out war against the Daleks, forcing him to take desperate measures to save humanity from annihilation. Starring Christopher Eccleston in his final appearance as the Time Lord, with Billie Piper and John Barrowman.
