“The End of Time” Review

3 Jan

So, I decided to do a review. This review is on Doctor Who: The End of Time. Because it’s a ‘two-parter’, I’ll give you my reviews on Part 1 and 2 separetly.

Part 1

Airing in America the day after Christmas, this one was pretty dang creepy. It starts out with The Doctor (Played by the amazing David Tennant) talking to an alien race called the Ood, who tell him that “his song is ending”, and the end of time is coming! He heads back to earth with heavy hearts (He has two!) and finds that the master (John Simm) is alive! Uh oh! But, while this creepy cult was raising him from the dead, it was ‘interuppted’ by his wife, who splashed him with some death stuff. So, now you have an even MORE insane Master walking around Britain, eating people. Yeah. CREEPY!! Meanwhile, the Doctor finds Donna’s grandad, Wilfred Mott (Bernard Cribbins), and he tells him that he has been having bad dreams with the Master in them. In the end, we are left with the Master using some alien technology to turn everyone (Except Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), her grandad, and the Doctor) into identical copies of him, dubbing the race of blondies “The Master Race”. We also see the Time Lords, the Doctor’s two-hearted alien race, coming back!! But they’ve been stuck in the Time War, which is a Time Lock (Nothing can get in-out)! Oh no!

This episode was good. It was VERY creepy though, and a bit scary. No bad dreams reported from me, though. Although it did freak me out. Little kids might not like that one, though. The Master turning everyone into himself was done by them all shaking their heads back and forth really fast, and it was kinda creepy.

Part 2

This one was one of the best Doctor Who‘s I’ve seen. Let’s just start off with that. This one is a bit more complex, so I’ll just stick to a basic summary.

The Doctor escapes with Will onto an alien space ship. The Master recieves a mysterious ‘White Point Diamond’, which can only be found on Gallifrey, the Time Lord’s (Now barren) planet. He plugs it into some machine that is boosting a signal of the beat of a drum in fours (The beat of a Time Lord, in reality; imagine your heart beat, then another one beating in the spots it isn’t.) to allow the Time Lords to escape the Time Lock and come to earth. They De-Masterfy the human race, but then turn around and start crashing Gallifrey into it! Bittersweet, much? The Doctor returns via sky diving from an alien ship, crashing through a window, and landing on the marble floor with an old 40’s pistol from Will, but lies there just kind of bleeding. Ow. The Time Lords plan on making a come back, basically destroying the whole of creation so they can become little beings only of thoughts. Selfish! So after debating on who to shoot, the Maser of the President of the Time Lords, he shoots the diamond holding the Time Lords there. And to save the Doctor’s life, the Master starts blasting the President with some super-human strength he got when being brought back to life.

BUT WE’RE NOT DONE!

The prophecy of the Doctor’s death is fulfilled! As he is sitting there you hear a knock of four, repeated a few times. He turns around to see Wilf stuck in a radiation containment chamber and can only be let out if the Doctor lets him out by stepping into the other one, trapping himself inside. Wilf begs him not to let him go, but the Doctor cannot stand there while his friend dies. He steps into the other one and absorbs all of the radiation. He is alive…but he finds out that he is beginning the regeneration cycle, which the Time Lords use to ‘cheat death’ by changing their face (And everything) retaining the memories, but that’s about it. It ends with him saving or helping out his friends, which he does as a reward to himself, then limps into the Tardis and regenerates, yelling “I don’t want to go!”. Though, to balance out all the death, crying, and crazy tenseness, they ended on a happy-sort of funny note. Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor, feels of his hair and shouts out, “I’m a girl!?!” and so that made me laugh.

I will really miss David Tennant, but I will give Matt a chance and I wish him good luck! The acting in this one was great, and David just…did…it…I don’t know how to describe it. I cried like twice. I almost cried several more time, though. But really, his acting was just great. I’ll miss you, David Tennant!!
