well i enjoyed it
(I always seem to say that)
there were a few dodgy moments but overall enjoyable
the end reminded me of "Being John Malkovich" (I'd completely forgotten about the matrix sequels )
and next week looks pretty interesting

I think is safe to say that no scenery will go un-chewed with Timothy Dalton around...

It's almost as if trade between the US and the UK is still being conducted by wooden ships and sails doesn't it?--I wonder when that next batch of slaves will arrive? My barrels of rum are losing profit sitting there on the dock.

In that case, we won't tell you how part two ended up, then.

Question was I the only one who found the cactus lass strangely attractive? I was? Okay then.

Rather splendid and abstract if you ask me. Didn't like him revisiting old companions though, especially Billie Piper. Just when you think you're safe from her .
When it showed the Cactus spaceship me and teh girlfriend turned to each other... "Starbug" . It really was.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tennant's/Davies's send off.

However, and despite his splendid "I'm a girl" entrance, I remain to be convinced by the new Doctor!

Geronimo? Really? That's his catch phrase? I guess we will have to wait and see.

Me too.

Went a little John Woo there in the middle. All that scene was missing was some slow motion footage of doves. Not as bad as part one though. Origin of the Weeping Angels and who was really knocking in the prophecy got me pretty good. I also didn't care much for all the tacked on last minute cameos. Reminded me of the series 4 finale though I did like the lonely man ending of that one.

So new year, new doctor, new tardis, new logo, new catch phrase, and new... music? Different style there at the very end. Hope that's not his new theme. I liked the Doctor's theme these last 4 series.

Given that he repeats it in the trailer for the upcoming series, it would certainly seem so.

The trailer also features... ...the Weeping Angels, Daleks (with what seems to be a modified design), girly vampires, what appears to be a couple of Silurians (the next classic monsters to return?), River Song, and our first fleeting glimpses of the new Tardis Interior - as well as the modified exterior that we've alreday seen from set photos. Oh, and there seems to be a fair bit of running involved too.

This might be interesting...

It was Starbug, the bar scene with Captain Jack was a little Star Wars Cantina...

So who shot first - Jack or Alonso?

On the subject of other sci-fi seeping in, the glass pods reminded me of Spock's demise in The Wrath of Khan. And the gun pod sequence owed more than a little to the similar scene in Star Wars where the Millennium Falcon is escaping the Death Star...

Meh, that always happens. There were loads of people wailing that David Tennant was going to be just horrible and it was the end of Doctor Who. It's happened with all the others too.... Looking around the webs a bit, I see a number of people claiming they are done with the show. I LOL @ these people. 99% of them will be back within a few episodes, as usual.

Luke Cribbins! I laughed at that, but I have to admit it was pretty great too.

Both very much so. Although Spock actually did it for real. And for the good of many, not as in this case, the good of one

Indded, there's always a fair bit of handwringing about the new choice of actor, and this time is no different. From what I've heard, Smith is a bit more subdued than the more bombastic Tennant, which if this is the case I'm pleased about.

However the role is being played though, you can never draw any conclusions from the first post-regeneration scenes. The Doctor's usuallly a bit erratic - he's rubbish at this regeneration lark.

And he's still not ginger...

Regeneration is one the big reasons why I love Doctor Who. Sad to see Tennant go, but I cannot wait for the Smith era!!!!

Sarah Jane said it best:

"The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it's a world, or a relationship... Everything has its time. And everything ends."

Of course, the best thing about a regeneration is still to come in the first episode of the new series - the new Doctor running about in the old Doctor's clothes!

Also;
Who designs a control system for something that vents nasty gases right onto the user? And taking about gases on the close up shots you can clearly see gaps between the glass. And if Wilf really didn't want the Doctor so save him, after that talk about how "anything might set it off" why didn't Wilf just hit some buttons and take the radiation himself? AND Wilf=Wolf=Bad Wolf?

"I don't want to go!"
Then why did you Tennant

Science fiction writers, that's who.

I've staunchly avoided being one of the Davies-haters for a long time, but while I enjoyed the pair of episodes overall, I thought all those scenes after the plot was resolved were excessively drawn out, maudlin, and painfully self-indulgent. It just kept going. Finally, after years of giving Davies a break because it's only Doctor Who, it was in those final scenes he made me really glad to see the back of him.

Perhaps Moffat won't mistake the Doctor for Jesus quite so often.

I was kinda thinkin how cool it would be to bring back the brigadier at least once for ***** and giggles, and maybe figure out a way to bring back Adrick for a little while those were a pair of fascinating characters.

Yah I know but not in a spin off honestly I thought Sarah Jane was kinda terrible as a spin to me, Torchwood I like though.
