What a great ending for David Tennant’s Doctor. I have already reviewed the first part of Doctor Who – The End of Time.

Doctor Who - The End of Time

I don’t really want to give anything away to those who haven’t seen this yet, but I thought that the way they had The Doctor save everyone he knew at the end of the show was brilliantly done. The show had reached it’s climax, then slowly came down, but didn’t feel dragged out. Shows like this can have a tendency to do that, but the Doctor Who writers were able to pull it off.

I did feel as though David Tennant leaving was a bit dramatic. I am not sure if this much had ever been made about another Doctor leaving the show. Tennant had been named as the best Doctor ever from Doctor Who Magazine, but I have a hard time with that. There are so many fans who have never even seen anyone else but Christopher Eccleston play The Doctor.  There have been 9 Doctors before David Tennant, and if you haven’t seen them all, you can’t say he’s the best.

However, Tennant was brilliant.

If you want to own these specials, go to Amazon for Doctor Who DVD’s and more.

If you are in the UK, you will want to click on this, Doctor Who End of Time DVD’s.

(I thought that Timothy Dalton played a much better Time Lord than he did James Bond, but that’s just my opinion.)

We just watched Doctor Who – The End of Time, and I thought it was fantastic. Usually when shows split something up into two parts, the first part is boring and extremely slow moving, not so with The End of Time.

The action starts right away, and keeps moving the story along until the very end. I believe Russell T Davies was on top of his game with this one.

The biggest point (of course) comes at the end where Timothy Dalton, who has been narrating the story, is shown with others in the background and says “…the day the Time Lords returned, for Gallifrey, for Victory, for the End of Time itself!” What? Time Lords?

I can’t wait to see how they explain this.

The only real problem I found was the fact that The Doctor doesn’t seem to do much except chase The Master around. I’m sure that will change in Part 2 next week.

John Simm really plays the part of The Master well. Especially a psychotic, crazy Master. He kind of creeps you out with how into the part he is.

My wife was trying not to cry because she is going to Miss David Tennant, but I keep telling her, we weren’t to happy when Christopher Eccleston left. We thought David Tennant was going to be stupid, but we were wrong. That is one of the great things about Doctor Who, you can get some great interpretations of The Doctor.

I know many people will be wanting to buy this Doctor Who Special, so here is a link to Amazon to pre-order the DVD’s.

SPOILER ALERT!! Don’t read the rest of this post if you haven’t seen the show yet.

Doctor Who - The Waters of Mars

So I don’t know about anyone else, but I felt that this Doctor Who special was kind of dark. My wife thought it was depressing. When The Doctor just stands by while people are about to die, it’s hard because you know he’s doing the right thing, yet it still feels wrong.

Then he decides to help, and you know he’s doing the wrong thing, but yet it feels right.

That is great writing.

Things turned out pretty much the same in the end, but The Doctor won’t be. He knows his time is coming.

I think that this special showed a much more human side to The Doctor than before, and I think it came at the end. As Lord Acton said “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” This explains The Doctor’s actions at the end of the show. He was the Time Lord, not a Time Lord. He had power over time itself. It was up to him who lived or died. In The Doctor’s on words, “The laws of time are mine, and they will obey me!” But in the end, he didn’t have that power, the Captain still died.

Unlike The Master, The Doctor realizes what he did and that he can’t play with peoples lives as he sees fit.

There is a lot of political fodder in this, but I think I’ll stay away from that. You can discuss it if you like.

Yes, you read that right, a Dalek was found at the bottom of a muddy pond in Beaulieu, Hampshire, UK. Can you imagine if you were the one cleaning up the pond and a Dalek comes up to the surface?

Dalek Found in a Pond

Marc Oakland (who found the Dalek) said “I’d just shifted a tree branch with my foot when I noticed something dark and round slowly coming up to the surface. I got the shock of my life when a Dalek head bobbed up right in front of me. It must have been down there for some time because it was covered in mould and water weed, and had quite a bit of damage. One of the dome lights was smashed, but the eye-stalk was intact and the head and neck stayed in one piece as I carefully lifted it out.”

The team did some searching but didn’t find anymore Dalek or alien parts. They are keeping the actual location of the pond secret to prevent fans from coming and getting into it.

The Pond Warden, Tony Brown, said “We discovered the BBC often took the Daleks out on location for filming, and they travelled to Hampshire on at least one occasion in the 1980s, when Colin Baker played the Time Lord. Who knows? This might be the remains of one of the originals from the old TV series. I’m told they were built to last.”

That is pretty cool. I’d love to have a life size Dalek to put on display in my house.

I am very sad that my first post has to be about David Tennant turning in his keys to the Tardis after 2009. He was absolute brillant playing the Doctor and will be greatly missed.

I haven’t heard any news about who will take over the keys, or what will cause the 10th Doctor to regenerate. As soon as I do, it will be posted! So loyal Doctor Who fans how do feel about David Tennant leaving? Do you have any predictions on who will be the 11th Doctor?
