Remember when… Rose got a whole new world?
To mark the anniversary of what is undoubtedly one of the show’s most heartbreaking moments to date, for this week’s Remember when… we are reliving Series 2’s bittersweet finale, specifically THAT beach scene. It saw David Tennant and Billie Piper’s characters cruelly ripped apart forever (or so they thought!) following the tragic events of the Battle of Canary Wharf. And there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
Stuck on parallel worlds, Rose’s time in the TARDIS was cut all too short, but the Doctor managed to say one final goodbye to her, burning up a sun to lead her to Bad Wolf Bay.

Of course you won’t need reminding of the excruciatingly heart-wrenching moment when Rose confessed her true feelings and the Doctor ran out of time as he was went to reply. Once again he had to say goodbye to a best friend, and we said goodbye to Rose Tyler.
What are your memories of watching the Doctor and Rose’s tearful farewell? Did you get through a whole box of Kleenex? You voted it as your second favourite Russell T Davies moment, but do you still well up when you watch it? Let us know in the comments below.
