The End of Time, Part 1

Filed in: Doctor Who.

To summarise in advance: The End of Time, Part 1 is an example of a typical first part of a Russell T Davies finale. If you're seen his previous finales, you'll know what to expect.

Right, from here on, spoiler warning apply.

The episode can pretty much be summed up as a lot of running around and not a lot of plot. In fact, it's pretty much like there's 45 minutes of plot for the whole of End of Time, but it's been stretched out to cover the some 135 minute run time of the two specials.

The most ludicrous part of the story is the resurrected Master's new sudden superpowers to jump really high, shoot lightning from his hands, and simulate a Dalek zap effect. What the heck?

I look forward to the resolution next week, during which we'll no doubt have the Doctor will die for our sins, and there will be lots of spectacle, and very little plot.
