Okay, that's fair warning for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

I really feel cheated on the regeneration thing. Last episode's cliffhanger took, literally, two seconds to resolve? Not fair. Should've had to work for it, suffered for it. A nearly incapacitated Doctor would have ratcheted it up a notch.

Everyone lives? Happily ever after? Donna should have died. The second Doctor should have died. Rose should be over the Doctor by now and settled for Mickey. I'm actually not sure what the point was bringing Rose/Mickey back at all. Except maybe to keep them in the show.

Of course now Rose is sealed off forever in another dimension. Really forever, this time.

Enough complaining though.

Catherine Tate playing David Tenant's Doctor was just excellent. I haven't liked her stint as much as I liked Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones. (She was actually my favorite of the companions so far.) This was by far my favorite episode of hers.

I think it's profoundly unfair that it's over a year until the next series. The only redeeming feature is that the writer taking over is Steven Moffat, who was responsible for both "Blink" and "The Empty Child" which are probably my favorite episodes to date. (Close behind is "Silence in the Library." Also Moffat.)

Tennant still Doctor after finale

If you're going to post in a 'spoilers' thread, please add a bit of a fence at the start.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Yeah, colour me unimpressed. This series was pretty 'meh' overall. I'm quite glad RTD has left the building. I felt a bit cheated by his lack of consistency.

As for Moffat, you are totally right. Blink was probably the best TV sci-fi I have ever seen.

So, if Doctor Donna couldn't last, how come Rose's Doctor didn't have his brain turn to jelly?

That is a very good point! Although it could be explained away by having Roses Doctor as 70/30 and Doctor Donna as 30/70, or some such.

I'm hoping Torchwood will get a lot better with Mickey in it.

I think they should have taken this opportunity to get rid of Torchwood. I don't want to see it without Owen and Tosh.

And I didn't think it was a very good resolution to all the excitement about Bad Wolf at the end of that recent episode.

I am certainly excited that Moffat is taking over though. Blink was wonderful.
