    Suffice to say, the new Who show is suppose to seperate itself from the past, and as such, I don't expect to be seeing any of our beloved companions again. I'm not quite sure whether this is a good or bad thing, but they will be missed (some more than others, for sure).
    I can easily do without seeing Rose or Martha again.

    Jack is the only one that is really a requirement to come back in my books.

    Wouldn't mind it if the Doctor met up with some others such as the Brigadier, Sgt Benton, or Harry Sullivan again though.

    I reckon that's more likely. From what I've seen so far, with the trailer and the new logo, it looks like new Who is going to be a bit more in line with old Who rather than current Who. I think there's a fair few two-part episodes next season as well, which could end up more like the earlier serials starting with a slow build rather than trying to keep up a fast pace throughout. I think RTD one too many times went with what he thought kids would find cool, regardless of whether it would make a good story.

Just like happened to Don Lockwood at the start of that. And it IS a shame, because, yes, I've really enjoyed DT's Doctor, there IS something magical about him. But as you said? Is he 'teh best doctah evah???' no, I wouldn't say so. I personally still prefer Peter Davison and Paul McGann over him any day.
    The people at the RSC put out a request that fan's of Dr Who and Star Trek not to bring DW and ST memoribilia to the theater for the stars to sign, it seems a shame that people only went to see Hamlet for DT and PS and not the play. Hamlet is not one of my favourite plays but I did hear him in a radio production of Much Ado About Nothing, he played Benedick, but I'd rather watch Kenneth Brannagh play him.

    Well, regardless of what everyone says I liked RTD's episodes alot.....but I can't wait for what Moffat brings. The End of Time could of had more, but I was still satisfied with the way it went. Although I kinda wish the Doctor DID die, and somehow another Doctor was brought about. I didn't understand Martha and Mickey at all, alternate universe maybe?

    I can't totally fault RTD, there's a number of his episodes that I quite liked: The End of the World, New Earth, Army of Ghosts/Doomsday, Utopia/Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords. But I am very tired of the massive gimmick to solve each big plot.

    I'm not sure if you were trying to be homophobic but you certainly came accross that way. I don't watch SJA myself but any kids watching it would already know Jack from Who so his homosexuality is a bit of a non-issue.

    Still, the way Torchwood played out I don't expect Jack to be swinging by Earth any time soon anyway!

    As far as I know, series 4 is in the pipe.

    I rather enjoyed the episode. It answered why the Master is the way is he is. We learned more about what happened in the last day of the time war. But mostly it was about the Doctor and in the end he sacrificed himself to same one person. And the doctor got his reward by saying goodbye and saving his friends one last time as the Doctor they knew him as.

    Also someone mentioned that the 5 specials were just a vehicle leading to the Doctors "death". Remember in all the series there was always underlying seeds placed that would lead to something at the end. Series 1: who/what is Bad Wolf, Series 2: Rose's "death", Series 3: You are not Alone, Series 4: Return of Rose.

    I guess it's official then, RTD simply writes his episodes for me and disregards anyone else's opinion!



    Seriously, my least favourite RTD episode is New Earth and I still really love it.

    I just watched this epispde, and although it was a REALLY good episode, the only reason i HATE it, is because the Doctor dies......er regenirates. I'm gonna miss him The ending was really sad, when he goes to visit people, and what made it especially sad was that Rose was the last person he visited

    Not the best DT epidsode but I not the worst either... The whole "mystery Women" didn't really get explaned. I thought Martha and Micky as a couple was really great, they both needed someone. I loved how The doctor went back into time to see Rose, one last goodbye. I personally thought from the last end of series 4 to know Donna had a lame storyline, they could have done something better for her, should have done.... The 10th doctor last line was done... I don't know if it was the perfect last line, I liked it, but I don't know it was missing something.

    Now on to 11. I'm really looking forward to Matt. I just saw a perview of the new season and it looked really nice. Can't wait till Spring to see it!!! The only hard thing I'm going to have to get use to is The 11th doctor calling himself the "the doctor." I'm so use to DT, Chris was only on one season and DT have been the doctor so long it gonna be hard getting use to someone with a new face calling themself the doctor.
    There are my dogs!

    After Part 1, I had my bar set very, very low, and this half was wonderful.

    I loved so many things about this episode, so I'll start with the hotly debated ones:

    Martha and Mickey. It works, and it's quite cute. I wasn't that pleased with her sudden engagement to Tom, and with both Torchwood and Unit in various states of disrepair, corruption, confusion, etc., I can accept that both of them work freelance. I also liked that the Doctor saved her life, given how many times Martha saved him. Also, her hair had grown an awful lot between her last visit and that scene, nothing says the Doctor didn't save her in the future.

    Donna. I love that the Doctor left her defended, so while I agree that her presence was too brief, it was nice to see her again. I loved the touch with the lottery ticket and her Mother.

    The Master. I liked his redemption. He may (or may not) be gone for good, but I enjoyed seeing the Master and Doctor on the same side.

    The NEW Doctor. The scene was fine. It was a bit goofy, but so was DT's. I would ask anyone fretting about the scene to go pull up the threads for when 9 became 10. We were all like "Who is that skinny guy going on about teeth? I don't know if I can do this. He just muttered crap about Barcelona and then looked goofy." It worked out fine, and this will too. I'll comment on the trailer in the appropriate place, but I look forward to the new season.

    Jack and Midshipman Frame. I don't care what RTD said in interviews. He lies to the press. We all know this. Jack was in a bar in space, therefore, he has to be in there after COE. Therefore, Ianto is dead, and we don't know how much time has passed. What comfort can the Doctor offer him? He can't give Jack what he wants, so he gave him some solace/comfort/distration. I was impressed that he gave him what he needed, given he was not involved with the COE events. If the Doctor has had adventures between specials, we can assume that they might have spoken somewhere other than the Series 4 finale.

    Ten's ending. I liked it. I loved the music for him from the Ood, and I enjoyed seeing him say goodbye.

    The Tardis on fire. It makes sense. Other version of the Doctor weren't fighting their change, and they may or may not have had something to lose. 9 was protecting Rose, for example. Ten has nothing to lose; he's angry, and he can be self-indulgent, and we get a new phone box that looks a bit less porta-potty with a new interior look. I can handle it.

    The meh:

    Rose. I'm not that fond of her. Billie Piper has changed too much physically, so she didn't look even remotely 2005, but I can let it go. It made sense.

    The beginning did drag a bit, but I just wish Part 1 hadn't felt so long. The problem was made worse by BBC America. They just threw the commercials in and destroyed emotional sequences at least twice. They also held the trailer hostage in a desperate attempt to make us watch Demons.

    Overall, I'll give it a 9/10 because I wish the front half hadn't been so bad. I wasn't looking forward to this episode because many of the specials have been so weak (I only liked the Water of Mars.) I'll stay up to see it again, and I look forward to the new Doctor and where the show will go now.

    I'm not an RTD hater, but I have gotten tired of many of his tropes and comic winks that are more like unfunny sledgehammers, so I am happy to see Moffat give us new stories. But I stayed up ridiculously late to watch my first regeneration again as 9 became 10, and I am more than willing to sacrifice a little sleep now for one of my favorite shows.

    .......the series is doomed, without Tennant it's screwed apparently he's been voted best doctor ever, according to some suspicous site I have never seen before.

    Down to buisness umm

    Likes: 2nd last scene where he is saying goodbye
    .Those humpty dumpty people back (sontarans I think)
    .Doctor finally uses a gun
    .Time lords YAY
    .That guy from Hot Fuzz as that time lord dude
    .Doctor going back to say hi to Rose
    .Total Lol at the whole of chinas army being the master....I would say something smart about that but it wouldn't be right
    .Doctor thinking he was a girl
    .LOL at cheating in the lottery
    .Jack being in a bar....I imagine he would be a nice fellow being a drunkard
    .Although I do mention the "I don't get it" in the mickey/martha...gun happy couple seems nice...just like Mr and Mrs Smith......wait if Martha took up Mickeys last name......doesn't that REALLY make them mr and mrs smith?!?!

    Dislikes: Total WTH at those pointless Cactus people
    .Doctor screwing his people
    .Mickey/Martha or whatever her name is married, I just don't get it
    .No daleks should of shown a dalek/time lord battle scene imo
    .The old dude HAVING to get trapped, can't he have oh I dunno NOT DONE THAT
    .Cactus people not being killed off
    .Lack of old friends helping out
    .Oh and Did I mention the cactus's...oh sorry the proper term is Cactii
    .The lameness of Matt White came close or did destroy the tardis

    And finally, the biggest moment.....Matt White.....umm yeah...I hope he gets a new suit, because he looked kind of...well weird with Tennants suit (yeah I know it will change just saying)

    They say don't judge a book by it's cover.....unfortunately I have to in this case I have little confidence in Matt White........besides he doesn't have the doctors good looks

    Gonna watch 1 maybe 2 episodes but I have lost hope, it's just not the same.....I almost broke down crying after seeing The Doctor thinking he was a girl...and when he turned into White

    Although I think that woman the Doctor noticed with the Time lords was his mother.

    Oh and I noticed a mistake the Old Dude knocked 16 times!

    finally got to see it! and I quite liked it. Not sure about *loving* it, but I did enjoy it .. especially seeing Gallifrey as (spoofing real life) Earth's near Apophis crashing into it. Cleverly done..

    and all of the spoilers past didn't influence my thoughts at all from watching.
    Yeeeehaw! bobbin' up and down and all around in the turret scenes.. oh my!!

    I will say that some of the running (viewer) ideas speculating behind the Doctor's impending *death* were quite interesting.

    I don't think so. They were both holding hands after the last defeat of the Daleks eppy. So, as Mickey said--
    Spoiler:
    basically he severed all romantic connections with Rose, and started a new life elsewhere -- one with Martha.


    So, it wasn't entirely unexpected based on and from that particular moment in time.


    Anywho.. =) Watching the marathon of eps (on BBC-America) put too much info overload in.. Donna's not the only one. 48-hours non-stop.. owwwwwwww..
    ..but now I've got tons of several DW music themes dancing in my mind for a little while..

    Oh, I will definitely miss the music. That is one area the has greatly improved over the years (and that includes all the way back to the very beginning of the entire series in 1963.. =)

    That's the part I didn't quite understand. Rassilon said the Master was diseased, but the Time Lords made him that way. The question is *why*.
    And don't think for a moment that the Master is gone-gone.. he's earned the reputation for being DW's version of being Ming-the-Merciless.

    yep, that's the Doctor (so far).. all of them.
    well, except for the few actors (as the Doctor's various selves) who weren't able to show their regeneration sequences.

    actually, pre-Rose, which that whole encounter seemed sort of weird or awkward.


    -- trivia time --
    PS-- did anyone catch the name *Verity* in the story.. Verity was the name of the Doctor's mother (oh, and that lady must have been her for sure!).
    Verity was also the name of the author on the book..
    And according to Doctor Who-A Celebration Through Time and Space
    (by Peter Haining, 1983)
    Verity Lambert was the first / original producer of Doctor Who. In a sense,
    she was the very real *mother* of the Doctor.. She literally gave life to THE Doctor. hmmm.. beyond inserting her name as just just a simple tribute, and a mighty *significant* tribute at that -- was incorporating "Verity" into the very fabric of the series, a mere play on names and actual events or wonderfully woven into the tapestry of the entire series..???
    ..me thinks so.. =)
