In the issue of TV Guide (the weekly US television listings magazine) mailing this week, a substantial Friday highlight is given over to the departure of Billie Piper as Rose ('Army of Ghosts' and 'Doomsday' airs on the Sci-Fi Channel in the US back-to-back on Friday 22 December starting at 8PM; a marathon of other Series 2 episodes airs earlier that day). The piece looks back at other significant departures in the series, touching on Christopher Eccleston's regeneration at the end of Series 1 and then recounting the death of Adric from 'Earthshock' and Second Doctor Patrick Troughton's epic end in 'The War Games'.
