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 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.

David Tennant was brilliant in his final adventure as the Tenth Doctor. Bernard Cribbins was like everyone's best and favourite Granddad, ever. Both brought tears to my eyes as Ten's swansong unfolded.

But John Simm as the Doctor's tortured nemesis the Master was simply spellbinding throughout. Quite simply he stole every single scene he was in - it was sheer pleasure watching the whole range of human (and Timelord) emotions chase across his face. Prior to Russell T. Davies and John Simm's take on the character of the Doctor's old adversary (and one-time friend) I'd always found the Master to be a pretty unimpressive character - I never quite 'got' him. The dressing up, the doomed-to-failure plans to take over the universe/any planet you care to name/kill the Doctor (except mostly he didn't seem able to quite do that, either)never seemed to make much sense. But Russell T. Davies wanted to hold off bringing back the character until he'd worked out how to write him. And what he did was (and pardon the pun) quite simply Masterful: he made the Master insane. Not evil (Davies doesn't like the word and doesn't believe in evil for it's own sake) but clinically insane. A psychotic, high-functioning Sociopath. But he didn't stop there - he explained why the Master is insane. And this story arc (begun in Season Three with Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords)came to it's sad conclusion in The End of Time.

What a story! Perhaps there were a few things left unexplained (doesn't bother me - fuel for speculation and fan fiction galore over the months and years to come, no doubt) but the overall effect is an emotional roller-coaster of a tale that will have you reaching for your tissues as the two frenemies discover the Master's sad story.
