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

I won't give spoilers other to then to say I was damn surprised about how good it was. I have been a fan for over 30 years and this episode was in line with some of the greatest of ages past, such as War Games, Deadly Assassin, Trial of a Time Lord, etc. It takes 5 years of of the series and wraps it up beautifully. The episode, plus the preview for the following week make this the most amazing thing I have seen on TV that I have seen in years. I was amazed at what they did. Any of the other reviewers who complain about the episode I say those peeps are whiny little bitches. I'll say it again, they are whiny little bitches, its a fantastic episode that will go down in history. Screw all of the nay-sayers!!!!
UPDATE: After watching Part 2...I am disappointed.
