From the Doctor Who Confidential for Doomsday:

RTD: What Rose brings to the Doctor's life is completion. It's completing a circle. He's male, he's alien, he's a traveller. Between the two of them together, they complement each other and discover each other and are in love with each other, absolutely, unashamedly, unreservedly.  When the Doctor met Rose, that was a very different Doctor. That was a lonely, damaged man. His entire planet had been wiped out.

DT: He's literally, categorically, fundamentally on his own. Rose helped him move on from this terrible grief that he's been dealing with.

RTD: She humanizes him, actually. She knocks off the Time Lord edges and humanizes him, just as he Time Lords her. They were what the other was lacking. They are inseparable.

DT: I think Rose kind of gave him a bit of hope again.

[emotional musical montage of all the shippy moments--as you can imagine, it takes a while]

RTD: She will stay in that TARDIS until she's dead. That's what her life will be. And that's why it needs these cataclysmic events to draw a line, to literally put a whole universe between them. And I just thought it needs something huge, something epic, literally, it's called the war in heaven. And that's what Rose and that's what Billie Piper deserve as their grand slam finale. Gods are clashing over the Earth--the bronze gods and the silver gods--two great armies coming together with human beings trapped in the middle of it, and one Time Lord in the middle, and two universes in danger. It is as epic as you can possibly get, it's huge mythic story telling in order to split up a couple. In the end I sort of thought I'd created a companion who was so alive and dynamic and so wedded to the Doctor that you need a whole universe to contain her in. The only way to get rid of her is to send her to a parallel world from which she could never return, otherwise she'd stay with the Doctor forever.

"They keep on trying to split us up, but they never ever will."

If you've not already seen it the 50th trailer has FINALLY been released!


So go ahead and comment with spoilers, speculation, rumors - anything. Go nuts!

The Doctor and Rose were experts in many kinds of hugs. This is an example of the all important "pre-danger hug".

Doctor: I don't age. I regenerate. But humans decay. You wither and you die. Imagine watching that happen to someone who you--
Rose: What, Doctor?
Doctor: You can spend the rest of your life with me. But I can't spend the rest of mine with you. I have to live on. Alone. That's the curse of the Time Lords.

Let's all fill in the blanks! What was the Doctor going to say? :P

And so we continue with the first on-screen adventure to an actual alien planet (that looks a bit like Wales) in New Who. And also the one time Ten gets to save people with hugging... no wonder he's in a good mood!

So with The Christmas Invasion we bid farewell to Nine and usher in the era of the Tenth Doctor. There's a number of moments from TCI that could fit here -- Rose's distress over Nine's death, the Doctor springing out of a coma because Rose asked for help, holding hands in the "snow" -- but ultimately I settled on this:

It's really quite apt that "Song for Ten", despite being, well, for Ten, is much more about Ten and Rose together, since that relationship will be so crucial to the entire story of the Tenth Doctor. Plus, it's pretty cool that Doctor/Rose gets their own song. (Songs, even.)

As for The Christmas Invasion itself -- what did you think? A good introduction to the Tenth Doctor? Were you as wary as Rose?

Rose... Before I go, I just wanna tell you, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And d'you know what? So was I!
I know, I know, I'm horrible and I didn't post the kiss! I'm sure you all can help a girl out and post it in gif-form in the comments below.

How did everyone feel about this 2-parter as a end for Nine? What kind of impact do you think it had on the Doctor and Rose's relationship? Both her time with Nine and the events of this episode in particular?

The glee on their faces! I love that they hug for all the littlest things possible. And don't even get me started with him lifting her off the ground when he hugs her.
