This is it, the finale of Doctor Who Dark Journey Series 2. So far this season we’ve had emotional rollercoasters, amazing cameos from past companions and even a family reunion of sorts. Dangling threads from season one about the Noble Project were answered and shocking revelations made. There was a lot of action, a lot of heart and a lot of quips. So where do we stand now?
This episode, more of a epilogue, finds our hero alone in the tardis. Well, not quite alone, he does have Fred after all. But can a man who has lived as long as the Doctor ever truly be alone?
Dark Journey takes us to the end of the… well, dark journey. This is a much subtler episode than the previous ones, the bulk of it just being dialogue between the two aforementioned characters. They share some of the most poignant moments of the entire series and this episode really shines as a great example of the writing, acting and production from Chalmers and Tamburro. The Doctor is still making jokes, but that’s just to hide the fact that he has lost hope. In the end he must make a decision, to give up or to keep going. What will he decide? Listen for yourself and find out.
Thanks to Mike and Andrew for a great Series 2. I can’t help but feel proud of this season, especially since they dedicated it to me! I look forward to reporting on (and listening to) what’s coming next for Dark Journey.
