Storyline

With almost everyone on Earth now recast in his image, The Master controls the Earth. He's shocked however when he realises one person hasn't changed; Donna Noble. The Doctor soon understands what the pounding in the Master's head is; it's the Time Lords, who are trying to return and re-establish Gallifrey. If they succeed, it'll mean the Last Great Time War will re-start, and all the horrors which came with it. In order to stop Rasillon's mad plan, the Doctor must make a choice. Finally, the Ood's prophecy for the Doctor becomes true, and he takes the TARDIS on a trip, to see friends for one last time, before he's to regenerate. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

The Doctor: I'd be proud.
Wilfred Mott: Of what?
The Doctor: If you were my dad.
Wilfred Mott: Come on, don't start. You were told that he would knock four times, and then you die. Well, that's him, isn't it? The Master, that noise in his head. The Master is going to kill you.
The Doctor: Yeah.
Wilfred Mott: Then kill him first.
The Doctor: That's how the Master started. It's not like I'm an innocent. I've taken lives. And I got worse, I got clever. Manipulated people into taking their own. Sometimes I think a Timelord lives too long. I can't. I just can't.

Russell T Davies really exceeded himself this time...
25 March 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

...he actually managed to write a story even *worse* than Last of the Timelords! Where should I even begin? Firstly, the resolution to the entire cliffhanger from the first episode is stupid. If I didn't know that RTD was completely incapable of any kind of subtlety, I could've assumed that the double-cop-out was a parody of itself. Secondly, the Master's entire back-story is retconned into something completely idiotic involving the drumming in his head (which I thought was a load of bull when it was first introduced anyway). Lastly, there's loads of the Doctor bawling and the whole thing feels like a send-off pandering more to the Tennant fan girls than all Doctor Who fans in general.

I wish the time-traveling astronaut had gone back in time to shoot HIM instead! I must admit though, this episode is definitely an appropriate send-off for RTD himself; just like his entire tenure as the producer, it is dumb, badly written and infuriatingly melodramatic.
