We finally got around to watching the season finale of Doctor Who! (I’d had to tape it as we were going to Husbandji’s brother A’s house for a picnic (more on that later in the week.).
Words fail me.
Utterly, utterly, fabulous!
Russell T Davies (the head writer of the series since it’s relaunch, and who has just stepped down from the post to go on to other projects) has written one Hell of an ending!
I won’t spoil the ending for anyone else who might not have had a chance to see it yet, but, it certainly tied up every single loose end and, as I mentioned to Husbandji, it could certainly have “held up” as the SERIES FINALE and not just the season finale, if the “Powers That Be” at the BBC had chosen to end the series!
Thankfully, it was only the season finale, although with David Tennant committed to doing “Hamlet” with the Royal Shakespeare Company throughout 2009, we will only be seeing three (possibly four) Doctor Who “specials” during that period with a return to the normal series schedule in 2010. (But will David Tennant still be The Doctor in 2010? Only “Time” will tell…)
One final thought. I was disappointed that there wasn’t a “teaser” at the end of the episode for the “2008 Christmas Special”. However, thanks to the Internet, I did find some information on it here.
Now, I just have to wait for Season Four to come out on DVD, so that I can experience it all over again! Oh, the pain of waiting! The pain!!!
