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 (2007), 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 »

Quotes

The Doctor: [to the master] Weapon, after weapon, after weapon. All you do is talk, and talk, and talk. But over all these years... and all these disasters, I've always had the greatest secret of them all. I know you. Explode those ships, you kill yourself... that's the one thing you can never do.

Wonderful climax
6 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
