This spoiler is more about the show in general and its future, not particularly about this episode.

Is there something in the Sci-Fi Channel's contract that says it has to be a whole friggin' month behind?

Finally saw it. Holy cow, I did not like this finale at all. It felt like just way too much stuff. There were moments where it seemed to be going great, but it managed to turn things around every time and come up with an unsatisfying resolution.

I think Phil Plait said it best: Like the Doctor himself, I think Davies needs someone to hold him back sometimes.

Can’t wait to see what Moffat has in store for us. Too bad it’s going to be the longest wait in the world though.

So who's replacing Donna? I totally forgot she really was temporary. Is Martha Jones coming back, or is the actress going over to Torchwood?

Oh yeah. "Oi! Watch it space man!"

The way it ended Mickey and Martha are probably in Torchwood.

I think this was RTD's big finale, throwing everything at it that he could. He's still writing and co-writing the specials next year, but this was the series end so wanted to go on a big finish before using next year to hand over. On the previous form of the casting for new characters, there is a chance that they could pick someone who has played a minor part before in Who or Torchwood to be the new assistant, they did this with Freema Agyeman, and Eve Myles was in the 'Unquiet Dead' Doctor Who episode before Torchwood (it was a nice touch linking up Gwen with the 'Unquiet Dead' character too).

I'm looking forward to Moffat's run at the series, the ones he has written have been the stand out episodes so far, and if he writes more of them being in charge, its got to be a good thing.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

I did the same, but then when it seemed like they started putting two weeks between every single episode, I got fed up.

They should have paid Tennant whatever he asked to stay on for a few episodes prior to regeneration. Then they should have picked someone other than Smith.

I mean, Moffat's episodes are good, but with this guy, I have to fear we'll see the Doctor in Coupling. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.

There are going to be a few interseason episodes with Tennant. He'll probably regenerate in the last one of those.

Doctor Who was a great show, how ever I stopped watching since season1 and I don't have the sci-fi channel anymore so I'll probably buy it on DVD when I get some money. . .

Now the next Doctor's first companion has been announced.

Yah, she's young which'll bring the inevitable Rose comparisons, but she's Scottish and I can't see them having her being as much of a clingy idiot as Rose wound up. Might have a companion with fire and kick and who can hold her own against the Doctor's occasional flake-outs.

Yes, I'm pulling the "No true Scotsman" card on this one. Besides, if they let her use her normal accent, I'll likely not care anyway....

You know, with the new Fisher-Price Doctor and this companion, I would totally lack faith in this series if it weren't for Steven Mofatt. But that dude's a genius, so I'm holding out a lot of hope.

After Tom Baker left Dr Who I lost all interest in it for twenty years. His replacements, wearing celery or clown costumes, were just stupid IMO. Tennant has been a terrific Dr Who (too good perhaps) and I fear the next bloke might show up wearing a tutu or something.

But wait... a hot redhead companion! Ah, all's well then. I'll be watching.

A hot, redheaded Scottish companion. If she sounds anything like Shirley Manson of Garbage.... well, won't care about anything else, really. Though if she's able to stand toe-to-toe with the Doctor and keep him focused, all the better.

Anyone see the new special? How awesome was that? The theme with Ten has always been his megalomania (he's a "lonely god"), and now it looks like he actually can do the impossible. Great character development for the Doctor. I can't wait to see how Davies ends it all. Glad the next one is only a month away.

Saw it and really liked it. I know people read this who might not have be up to date yet, so that's as much as I'm saying in the open for this and the Christmas finale. Spoiler mode here we come...

i enjoyed it a lot - the doctor is kind of losing it - he is fearing death big time and now he is starting to go outside of what the doctor has always done - not obeying the laws of time - doing things his way because he knows the end is near

couldn't find other, larger thread. odd.

quite liked the ending. Still sucks Tennant is leaving - he really is great. Hope he goes onto films.

Skeptical Dr Who will be as good with new dude.

Loved the Christmas and New Years special... though I was hoping that the Time Lords were actually trapped within the Master's head... that would have been cooler. My room mate and I came up with the theory that the Master was gonna use that machine to replace every human on earth with a Time Lord, and then the Doctor was going to have to either kill his people or humanity.

Either way though, aside from the overly long ending... it was great... it's strange that the Doctor saves Martha and Mikey's life, as well as Luke's but then all he does for Jack is gets him laid.

A bit of a challenge to save the life of someone who can't die. Even for the Doctor.
