Feigning normality since 1973
Series 3 end - 2 parter or 3 parter?
Filed in: Doctor Who.
Does Doctor Who series 3 end with a two-part story or a three-part story? The remainder of the post is cut to avoid spoiling people who haven't seen the end of the series yet - Utopia screens in the US this Friday.
So, are Utopia, The Sound of Drums and The Last of the Time Lords one story, or is Utopia to be considered separate?
Case for three-parter:
Case for two-parter:
The BBC press release is entirely unhelpful.
I'm inclined to go with Utopia/The Sound of Drums/The Last of the Time Lords being a three-parter, simply because one of the producers said so. It seems that they originally said Utopia was separate so that the cliffhanger ending would be a surprise, explaining the Radio Times listing. The fact that Utopia is part of a different production block's not really a reason either, when you consider The Trial of a Time Lord (regarded by many as one story).
