Storyline

Martha Jones secretly returns to England. It's been a year since the Master took over the Earth and launched the invasion. Humans are now a captive race and the Toclafane are building a fleet of rockets they will use to attack other worlds. The Master takes great pleasure in humiliating the Doctor and has Martha's family doing menial chores. Martha has a plan however and all she has to do in get in to see the Master. When she learns of the origin of the Toclafane, she realizes the paradox they have created. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When the Master is about to execute Martha on the Valiant he remarks that her death will be his "first blood." But just as he captured Martha the night before, Thomas Milligan ran into the street to save her and the Master killed him with his Laser Screwdriver. So even if you don't count the Master's killing of Jack in Doctor Who: The Sound of Drums, Thomas Milligan would be his first blood. The Master has actually killed many people in the past (e.g. the entire cabinet in the The Sound of Drums), but this is not a goof because when the Master says "first blood", he is most likely referring to first blood of the invasion. This is why he wants to kill Martha when the countdown reaches zero - the official start of the invasion. See more »

Absolute let down.
30 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I felt this episode was an absolute let down compared to the BBC's build up and all the hype that surrounded it. I LOVE Dr Who normally, but this episode left me feeling Gutted that the series had ended and GUTTED that this was going to be my lasting memory of it till next year.

SPOILER I know Martha will be back next year, but not in the xmas ep, but still i am a bit annoyed that she left at all. There were so many problems with this episode. The Doctor was not even really in it properly, much like the first episode Tenant appeared in, the show is called DR WHO not everyone BUT Dr Who, STOP DOING EPISODES WITHOUT HIM IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its like watching Superman without powers etc. Whats the point? It wasn't the worst episode ever, but id definitely say it was the WORST finale ever. What were they thinking? The bbc also wrote this up as the Master building a mighty Time Lord empire with warships etc, what did we get? The Master prancing around, a few missiles and a count down. Mention of a human/time lord race but no real substance there as the spheres basically did nothing what so ever for most of the ep.

The acting was great, the characters are always great. There is no fault at all in anything except the writing/story. It was just planely and simply an awful story. Or at least a good idea, very very very much ruined by a shoddy finish. I am so bothered by this because i was really excited at the prospect of a finale that would be better than doomsday and the finale before that. They were classic episodes, this was really not!! Anyway, sorry to be negative! But i am very disappointed.
