Do you like Doctor Who? Do you like the characters and complexities of the show? Do you find David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor to be absolutely fantastic?

If you answered yes to any/all of these questions, prepare to weep.

The End of Time has chaotic (and not in a good way) pacing, and an absurd plot only manageable for those watchers able to endure the most ridiculous of stories. The final episode of Russel T. Davies' run isn't very strong on the solid story department. And yet, I give the episode a 5-star rating. Why?

Because of the last twenty-to-thirty minutes after the climactic scene ends. It is set up quite well in Part 1 when The Doctor says regeneration IS dying, and just having someone else with his knowledge and memories taking his place. And even before it happens, both The Doctor and the viewer know that he's going to die. What follows is pure sadness, as The Doctor accepts his death, and decides to see his companions one last time. And by the end, I was already on the verge of tears when he started regenerating. And then David Tennant delivers the line that sums up all the feelings of fans of Doctor Who are feeling.

"I don't want to go."

Nobody wants him to go. He still stands today as one of the most beloved Doctors, and has a MASSIVE fanbase. We've gotten to know the 10th Doctor well, in a total of three seasons (four if you include the specials), and we've come to know him as smart, funny, kind, vengeful, and as flawed as anyone. Yet he still had a significant charm about him.

This episode is a perfect send-off to The Doctor, for fans, for Russel T. Davies, and for David Tennant (who is a huge Dr. Who nerd himself). Anyone who watches Dr.

NOT Season 1! These episodes take place between Season 4 & 5 of the post 2000 Doctor Who series. (Technically the Brits call these Series 4 & 5 instead of Seasons.)

The year in between Series 4 and Series 5 of Doctor Who had only 3 stories presented as 4 hour long specials.
1. Planet of the Dead - 2 Stars - Might not have rated this so low if it wasn't considered a "special". But it's a sub par episode at best and not worth buying on it's own.
2. The Water of Mars - 5 Stars - Hovering somewhere in my top 10 episodes of ALL Doctor Who episodes old and new. The only (I think) post 2000 episode in which the Doctor acts without the influence of a true or pseudo Companion. And the repercussions are fascinating to watch.
3. End of Time Parts 1 & 2 - 4 Stars - This is one episode, and the equivalent of a Season Finale. As such, in true Doctor Who form, it is over the top in parts, mind blowing at moments, but a fun ride throughout. Basically, why I watch Doctor Who. Although Water of Mars isn't absolutely essential to the overall story of Doctor Who, End of Time is required watching if you have watched Series 4 and intend to watch Series 5.

It was so sad to see this Doctor go. I really connected with him in a way that I didn't expect. To see him visit all of his past friends was amazing and surprisingly made my heart ache. A fitting end to arguably the best Doctor in my generation!

"The Waters of Mars" is perhaps my favorite Tennant special. This episode shows the culmination of the power and ego that had been building within the Doctor during the four years Davies was at the helm. It also provides a moment of human redemption and tempering of the Doctor that is generally not present without a companion. And the end of the episode ties it perfectly to the "End of Time" finale. A definite must-watch.

These specials are great! I can not telly you how much fun I had watching them. David Tennant has a great performance throughout all three. If you like Dr. Who and you really like the two part episodes and long story arcs you will love these. They each has a self contained story but the first two have a number of hints that don't come together until the third one. I don't remember if I said this but these are great!

Doctor Who has been about change, adding new things and adapting and growing to love what new things they throw our way since the beginning. People who complain about Matt Smith, to me, just can't get over David Tennant leaving. That's fine, but I think the whole "Oh woe is me, it's not the Doctor Who I love anymore" argument is invalid; the Doctor is quirky, whimsical, and ultimately epic, and he pulls it off. I think that's why people hate on this special so much; cause Tennant leaves.

What do I think of the special itself? Well, this and End of Time part 1 together make what I feel is the most epic entry in the Doctor Who series. I felt like I was watching the Doctor Who movie, or at least the theatrical equivalent.

The reason for the Master's maddening drumbeat is finally explained, and the Time Lords are now realized as the greatest threat to the universe and time itself. It's epic, adventerous, and above all, emotional. Just before the 10th Doctor leaves the show, he says farewell to all the companions he's had from 2005 and after, even good ol' Billie Piper. I almost cried at that part. The whole episode is an emotional roller-coaster. David Tennant leaving is sad, but Matt Smith's whimsical reaction to his regeneration cheers you right back up.

Love this special to pieces, it's, as Eccleston would say, "Fantastic!"
