Storyline

Forewarned and with a sense of foreboding, The Doctor races to return to Earth fearing that The Master will somehow return. He has good reason to worry since The Masters minions have in fact found a way to reconstitute him. Re-united with Wilfred Mott, The Doctor desperately tries to locate The Master only to find that he is being held by Joshua and Abigail Naismith who are using alien technology to create a new future for Earth. It's too late however, for The Master has now turned everyone on Earth into his own image. Little does he realize the greater danger that awaits them all. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Russell T. Davies originally wanted to have The Doctor and The Master swap bodies. However, Davies wasn't keen to spend time during David Tennant's final story with the actor playing anybody other than the Doctor, and was also mindful that he had used a similar notion in "New Earth". See more »

Goofs

After the Master has asked the Doctor to listen to the drumbeats in his head, when he takes his hands away there is an obvious dirty thumbprint on the Doctor's left temple. When the camera next cuts back to the Doctor the thumbprint has vanished. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
The Narrator: And so it came to pass, on Christmas Day, that the human race did cease to exist. But even then, the Master had no concept of his greater role in events. For this was far more than humanity's end. This day was the day upon which the whole of creation would change forever. This was the day the Time Lords returned. For Gallifrey.
Time Lords: For Gallifrey!
The Narrator: [with spittle] For victory!
Time Lords: For victory!
The Narrator: For the end of time itself!
Time Lords: For the end of time itself!

An Exciting, Fun, and Wacky First Part to David Tennant's Farewell Story (Spoiler-free, hopefully)
28 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After taking the good Doctor into some very dark territory with "The Waters of Mars," Russell T. Davies returns the Doctor back to his roots with "The End of Time, Part One," the first half of David Tennant's final story as the Tenth Doctor. From the very beginning of the episode, Davies intends to create a memorable story to give Tennant a fond farewell. And the story really is brilliant, exciting, wacky, and scary in the tradition of classic "Doctor Who." The cast and crew do a fantastic job of creating this amazing story, preparing us for the second half of the story, which promises to give Tennant an epic, fantastic farewell. While some may find it too outlandish, it does so with great fun and excitement, making it worthwhile. And the cliffhanger is the biggest, most exciting one yet, ending the show on a double-whammy! Longtime fans will surely love it! Allons-y! Grade: A+
