Jackie appears. Oh good. "Her dad?" squawks Jackie Tyler. "How are you her dad?" The moment breaks. "How old were you, twelve?" The Doctor takes off with a roll of his eyes, hilariously, and walks out of the frame entirely. Pete interrupts Jackie's exclamations of disgust: "Jacks, listen. This is Rose." Jackie keeps her voice low, but the freakout is on high, all about how could he name two of his daughters Rose, and how many are there, and how many are named Rose. Admit it, that would kind of make him a pimp. Finally, Pete levels with her, irritated at how crazy she is, and grabs baby Rose from her, tossing her to our Rose. The Doctor jumps, but too late, and even as he's pulling the baby from her, a Reaper appears in the middle of the church. The Doctor orders all the screaming guests behind him, and everything moves so, so slowly. It's a whole new thing -- the music is grand; everybody's behind the Doctor, who faces the chirping, menacing Reaper bravely as it spreads its wings. "I'm the oldest thing here," the Doctor says. He is fantastic. And it's upon him.
Rose screams, but it's too late. The beast crouches over the Doctor, its wings nestled around. Everybody screams. The Reaper wheels around the church, collides with the still-staticky TARDIS...and the whole thing disappears, Reaper and TARDIS both. The key falls to the floor, no longer glowing. Nothing moves. Finally, Rose runs down the aisle and picks up the key: "Cold. He's cold." Pete approaches slowly, looking around the church, still nervous. Rose: "Oh, my God. He's dead." Her father reaches out, but Rose shakes him off: "It's all my fault. All of you. Both of you..." Her voice cracks, and her father takes her in his arms. "The whole world..." The church goes dark. Another world down. "There's nothing we can do," says Jackie's friend Bev. "It's the end." A Reaper outside scrapes at the walls. Pete stares out the window at the hit-and-run loop. He's quite clever, I said. And now he's scared.
