Forget Italy versus France in the World Cup final, the only contest worth watching last weekend was Daleks versus the Cybermen on Doctor Who.

Exploiting yet another one of those pesky portals in time and space, clouds of flying Daleks filled the skies over Earth, whilst on the ground 5 million Cybermen stomped about in a cyber strop, having seen their invasion upstaged.

An action-packed, effects-laden two-parter culminated in the Doctor sending the whole lot packing, sucking both invading armies into a black hole of nothingness at the top of the Canary Wharf Tower.

Funny and fantastic, scary and sad, Doctor Who has everything. Well, nearly everything. Future series would have to do without Billie Piper who has retired from time travel. Teasing trailers had ominously implied that super sidekick Rose would be killed off but she actually ended up in a parallel universe Norway, which actually sounds a worse fate.

Rose and the Doctor's parting was a very emotional affair, beautifully written and movingly played. Not a dry eye in the universe.
