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

Trivia

Director Euros Lyn wanted to remove the scene where the Doctor visits Verity Newman, thinking it would be confusing for anyone who had missed the connection she has to the Doctor, but Russell T. Davies insisted on keeping the scene in the final cut. See more »

Goofs

When the Doctor visits Rose at the end of the episode, she tells him the date is "2005, January 1st". Rose then runs into a building where on the glass by the doorway is a sticker stating "NO SMOKING. It is against the law to smoke on these premises." This type of sticker only appeared after the smoking ban in England came into force on 1st July 2007, two and a half years after it appears in Rose's building. See more »

Quotes

Lord President: What news of the Doctor?
The Chancellor: Disappeared, my Lord President.
The Partisan: But we know his intention. He still possesses the Moment. And he'll use it to destroy Daleks and Time Lords alike.
The Chancellor: The Visonary confirms it.
The Visionary: Ending, burning falling... all of it falling. The black and pitch and screaming fire! So burning!
The Chancellor: All of her prophesies say the same. That this is the last day of the Time War. That Gallifrey falls and we all die, today.

Russell T Davies really exceeded himself this time...
25 March 2012 | by Takeshi666See 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.
