Dr Who Specials - really special,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - Complete Specials (The Next Doctor/ Planet of the Dead/ Waters of Mars & Winter Specials) [DVD] (DVD)
A wonderful set of Dr Who adventures made to accomodate David Tennant's acting commitments elsewhere (otherwise there would have been no Dr Who at all in 2010). While fans were always left wanting more, time really did fly by until the end of the year when the reappearance of the Time Lords caused a real emotional stir. Russell T Davies had originally decided when he became Dr Who producer that the Time Lords would no longer exist!
Not only was that the stupidest thing that man ever did it was also arrogant and typically self-indulgent, It was offensive and nonsense to any real dedicated fan of Dr Who. So I cheered loudly when it was announced that at the end of the specials season it was announced that RTD would step down as producer. So the Time Lords appear in their regal pomp and splendour having lost none of their arrogance (RTD would have been well suited to life on Gallifery).
The Master brilliantly played by John Sim really does bite off more than he can chew when he colludes with the Time Lords....well you can just guess the rest. David Tennant exited Doctor Who in one of the most exciting endings since 1974 when the Jon Pertwee |(my favourite!) changed into Tom Baker. Ste Johnson
