The End of Time, Part 2

Filed in: Doctor Who.

Like part 1, I pretty much knew what to expect, as it was typical of just about every Davies finale thus far. Despite it having many good moments, it felt ultimately like a bit of a let down. This was Davies' last chance to write a finale, and instead he more or less repeats himself.

After a Moment with the Master, the Doctor's effectively sidelined from the action for a chunk of screen time, before an extended chase scene, followed by a five-minute climax. Then the Doctor starts regenerating... and takes around twenty minutes to do so. That was one hell of a goodbye.

Still, now we have a new Doctor and new man in charge. Let's see what they can do with the show.

Part 1 was gloriously bonkers. Part 2 was absolute, unmitigated crap. Apart from Bernard Cribbins, the best thing in New Who since it started.
