'Doctor Who: The End of Time, Parts 1 and 2'
(David Tennant, Bernard Cribbins, John Simm, Timothy Dalton, et al / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2010 / BBC Home Video)
Overview: This action-packed two part finale is the blockbuster final story of the tenth Doctor, David Tennant, written by Russell T Davies, the mastermind behind the rebirth of the modern Doctor Who. The story will culminate in the dramatic regeneration of the Doctor, giving fans their first glimpse of the eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith.
DVD Verdict: The Doctor after dealing with the events of from Earth in the year 2059 returns to the Ood homeworld with a mental summons from Ood Sigma, but not without a hint of reluctance on his part. The Doctor is amazed at how quickly the Ood have built thier society and realizes that there is a problem. The Ood elders show the Doctor visions of Earth and people and events that do not make any sense.
The Doctor sees Willfred, Donna Noble's grandfather. The Earth and a vision of...The Master. Soon the Doctor is racing back to Earth and find out what the Master has to do with the planet Earth and it scares the Ood and gives them bad dreams. All the while the Doctor and the Master don't realize that something is coming. Something that will shake the foundation of everything and just maybe end the Doctor for all time.
As a personal note I don't want to give too much of this the last story of David Tennat away. It was wonderful full of great moments and well worth the wait for DVD. Like others they have some highs and lows for this story but I can only say great things about this. You will get to see everyone who made this the new Doctor Who series what it is today and quite frankly never be disappointed in it. I've watched this already a dozen times and I'm watching it again and again.
And now that all four of the one offs are out I can watch them all from start to finish. The last time I was saddened by a loss of a Doctor was when Tom Bakers time came to an end. But like all regenerations its never the end. So let's see what Matt Smith has to offer as the next Doctor. [JR] This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) and comes with the Special Features of:
