When she learns of the origin of the Toclafane, she realizes the paradox they have created. Written by
In The Last of the Time Lords, Jack tells the Doctor and Martha that when he was younger he was a poster boy known as the Face of Boe. However, in Utopia, Martha tells the Doctor that the Face of Boe told them that he (the doctor) was not alone. When she says this, Jack is in hearing distance, but he doesn't even react to the name.

Three minutes to align the black-hole converters. Counting down! I never could resist a ticking clock... My children! Are you ready?
We'll fly and blaze and slice! We'll fly and blaze and slice!
At zero, to mark this day, the child Martha Jones will die.
My first blood.

Spoilt brats. Those are the words I'd use to describe fans who've been griping about this episode. I thought it was magnificent, showing a breadth of imagination rarely seen on the small screen. The trouble with a lot of Doctor Who fans is that they're never happy, and never have been. At the time of Season 14, the season that was later reckoned to be the best ever, they were complaining that it wasn't as good as the Pertwee era. It was clearly a lot better. And the current show is much better still. Last Of The Time Lords was better than ANY episode of the old series. ANY episode. Easily. Why? Because it was audacious, it had an epic sweep to it, it had meaty sci-fi ideas that the likes of HG Wells and Philip K Dick would have been proud of (I'm thinking of concepts like the Paradox Machine), it boasted John Simm's fantastically enjoyable, streetwise performance as The Master (rather better than dire pantomime villain Anthony Ainley), it took risks, and most of all, it was vastly enjoyable. Sad little Doctor Who fans love to pick, love to criticise Russell T Davies, a man who has almost single handedly resurrected the show and turned it into one of the most popular and talked about on television. If the fans aren't careful they'll force him out, which would be a tragedy. This was a great end to a great series, albeit one that dipped in the middle a little. Anyone with anything to do with the making of this show: take a bow.
