How completely AWESOME was this episode?


Starting at the end, what the hell TEN, TIMELORD VICTORIOUS? We all know Ten sometimes has a God complex but this was weird and frankly kind of scary. I've never seen Ten like this, like he really could RULE the universe. He really thought he could save the important people? What happened to the little people, Ten? Something just switched on (or off?) in his brain and he was like MUWAHAHA I AM TIMELORD, the only one and I DICTATE EVERYTHING IN TIME. I swear I saw some MASTER!CRAZY in there.
And then she shot herself and everything happened anyway. And OOD Sigma appeared as the OOD OF TENS IMPENDING DEATH! What what. He's dying and he knows it. And where is he going at the end of the episode? TO ROSE Y/Y?

In other news I nearly cried when his DOOMSDAY line was just there and then suddenly Ten got all YES, I AM GOD, I CAN DO WHATEVER. I need to rewatch this episode asap.

And the story in itself was really good as well. But we just got to see Ten in a completely different way, and this is obviously what David Tennant meant, but I just couldn't believe that was really him. He really needs someone to keep him down to earth and not be this VICTORIOUS TIMELORD. Because that was kind of ridiculous, Ten. I'm glad you kind of got back to your senses when Adelaide killed herself and you realised that you were being too God-like and this is not good.

I also got really excited whenever the orange space suit made an appearance, because I just watched the Impossible Planet and the Satan Pit today, just to get into it all and that was the suit in which he and Rose had that amazing hug. And it's exactly the same. LOVE. And that's why it hurt even more when the DOOMSDAY line came out of nowhere, I wasn't prepared for that.

David's hair was epic this episode.

And the preview got me even more excited than this episode! JOHN SIMM, blonde and hooded. We ofcourse already knew that, but HELLO. And WILF and DONNA. He's telling Wilf he's dying and Donna is just there I dont know what she's doing, but she's obviously being awesome whatever she's doing. AND THE MASTER, laughing like the loveable psychopath that he is. And the skull? What does that mean? Is he dead? Electrocuted? Aaaah, I can't wait for this to air.

Doctor Who, you are still my favorite show.

Seriously though, this episode took my mind, played with it, and then jumped up and down on it with glee.

I KNOW RIGHT. I did not even mention the scruffyness but YES. John Simm just looked gorgeous! I NEED CHRISTMAS TO COME VERY EARLY PLEASE. I don't think I can wait this long for all of this awesome.

Really great episode. So much better than the Next Doctor and Planet of the Dead. It felt like a proper Who episode again. Maybe because it is the start of a story and we know what's coming next and that makes it even more exciting! And sad.

I know. I think it's partly because he hasn't had a companion around.

Yes, that's definitely it. I know RTD said that he needed a human companion to keep him grounded, but this is where we saw that he really needs someone to stop him, as Donna said in the Runaway Bride. If no one stops him, he just goes on and really thinks he can do anything because he is the last Time Lord and is the one in charge of everything in time. David Tennant really played this brilliantly.

Yeah. You can see that he needs a human companion. He gone far too long w/o a human companion. So now he is becoming dark and doing whatever he wants. David did!

Was Rose in it at all?

Sadly no. But she's definitely in one of David's last episodes, either in the Christmas one or the New Years one :)

I just had the feeling at the end of the episode, the Doctor was like screw it all, screw the timelines and everything, I'm going against everything I used to believe in and go back in time to see Rose one last time before I die. But that's just something I think. I have no idea how they're going to get Rose into the last episodes.

Hopefully it's not a dream sequence, or smth she'll forget. I remember how sad it was when Buffy didn't remember her one day with human Angel.

Doomsday line? Am I missing something here?

When the Doctor was outside the station, watching the rocket explode, we heard his voices from the past and one of them was:

"I've got the TARDIS. Same old life, last of the Time Lords."

There's just so much emotion in that one sentence and it was just really sad for some reason for me. Brings back that Bad Wolf Bay scene.

The Doctor was scaring the CRAP out of me at the end. He was completely unhinged. This is what happens when there are no companions! There's no one to stop him.

I know right? I was like What the hell? when Adelaide said 'No one should have that much power' and Ten was like 'I'm a winner!' And the Time Lord Victorious line was so not Ten. I didn't know what to think and it was scary, because that was not the Ten we've come to know and love.

I kept thinking this would never happen if Rose, Martha or Donna were with him, but I guess this is what happens when he doesn't have a companion to keep him 'down to earth'. And yes, it scared the crap out of me too!
