“The final scene of “End of the World” (“Do you smell chips?”) was always meant to be in Piccadily Circus but half way through production, it became clear that this would’ve required a trip to London for that scene alone, and I realised the dialogue would work in any old street instead. It’s actually better for being set somewhere anonymous.”

Doctor Who: End of the World

The Doctor takes Rose to the far future and a giant space station orbiting the Earth. This is to be their vantage point as they prepare to witness the sun expanding and eventually engulfing the Earth. Many different species gather to witness the spectacle, but one of them has a different agenda. With the help of Jabe, an alien female with tree-like features, the Doctor and Rose manage to stop the maniacal Cassandra from destroying them, and watch the final moments of the Earth’s life. They then head back to present day Earth for a poke of chips.
