If ever there was two days when half the female popularity had their heart broken, one was the 29th October 2008 when the very talented, gorgeous David Tennant announced he was stepping down as everyones favourite Doctor, but we had over a year to come to terms with it.
second was 1st January 2010 when the moment many had dreaded happened, and the 10th Doctor was no more.

I found Waters of Mars creepy one of the scariest episodes to date. I work in a nursery and I was praying that the children didnt watch it, as some of them do like Doctor Who, but to my relife they hadnt watched it.
The ending though sums up the feeling of the very last episode, you know its going to be sad..... but just how sad, no one realises.

End Of Time - end of the 10th Doctors time, maybe should have been a more apt name for it.
It starts off a bit slow, but to its credit, a tremondous build up to what we all know is gonna happen, all the way through, David portrays the emotion that not only the Doctor felt, but that as he himself must have felt as well, saying himself that he is a fanboy of the show, so that emotion probably didnt need much acting.

Beautiful performance also from John Simms, especially when his Master and the Doctor meet face to face properly since the Doctor held him while he died in The Last Of The Time Lords.
This scene held the anticipation of what was to come and it didnt dissappoint.

In a medium nutshell, David Tennant was the best Doctor ever, and it wont be the same without him.
If you havent seen it, about 15 minutes before the ending there is a twist, and it involves the two Time Lords.

David Tennant, the nation salutes you, whether you like it or not.

This box-set contains the last two TV adventures to feature David Tennant's Doctor and concludes the Russell T. Davies era of the show. These are two thrilling stories that bring a closure to the Tenth Doctor with touching and moving dedication. David Tennant was the best Doctor I've ever seen and enjoyed watching and he's truly missed.

The two stories are `The Waters of Mars' (a one-part story on one disc) and `The End of Time' (a two-part story spread across two discs).

`THE WATERS OF MARS'

The `Autumn Special' that was shown in November back in 2009. This is a chilling horror story that will make your children scared to bits. It stars David Tennant alongside his main co-star Lindsay Duncan as Captain Adelaide Brooke. It's set on the planet Mars and it's the 21st of November 2059. New reports about the existence of life on Mars has been with us long as man first walked on the moon back in 1969. And it's great that in the Russell T. Davies era they actually get to do a story that's a proper Martian adventure.

Mars is of course the home of popular Doctor Who monsters - the Ice Warriors. But they don't appear in this story. Instead we have the deadly Flood - an alien species in the form of water that possesses human bodies whenever you touch or drink one drop. The look of these monsters when the humans actually become the Flood like Andy, Tarak and Maggie are really terrifying. They're properly one of the most scariest monsters ever to appear in `Doctor Who'. And it's a really frightening idea of people being taken over by water that controls you and once you've been hit by water, you're dead. I found it very heart-breaking when Steffi gets trapped about to be hit by water and she's crying when watching a `family video' before she dies.

This is a three disc set featuring the last two stories featuring David Tennant as the Doctor.

In The Waters of Mars the Doctor encounters one of his "fixed points" in time when the crew of the first base on Mars are all killed in a catastrophic explosion. The Doctor leaves Bowie Base One when he realises that he has arrived on the day that this event occurs, but as he trudges across the surface he can hear the men and women screaming and dying. An explosion knocks him off his feet and debris falls around him; and this is the turning point. Can he really turn his back?

The End of Time is the last of David's appearances, and he is teamed up with Bernard Cribbins as Wilfred Mott. "I am going to die," he says. "So am I," says Wilfred. Two old geezers together and it even turns out that Wilfred is the cause of the Doctor's regeneration. The Doctor battles with the Doctor but it turns out that they have to stand together to defeat a greater menace. One of my favourite moments is when the Doctor points a gun directly at the Master. The Master thinks that he may pull the trigger but the Doctor bellows: "Get out of the way!" and blasts a control panel. John Simm plays the resurrected but definitely unhinged Master perfectly and he has a most unusual way of conquering the world.

The features together give 193 minutes of entertainment and Doctor Who fans will thoroughly enjoy them. Everyone else should find plenty them thrilling adventures as well!

We are so glad we bought a PAL DVD player to watch some of older BBC series like Midsomer Murders, Inspector Morse, etc. BBC America showed the Winter 2009 Doctor Who Specials but not the Confidentials [as far as I know]. If you have been a long time fan of the David Tenant Doctor Who, you will find the Confidential min-features both entertaining and poignant.
