First off, what a great episode. I was on the edge of my couch the whole time, and even had to tell myself to blink a few times. Amazing. And two Doctors? Every woman's dream, especially considering the difference between the two. One elegant, intelligent, lonely God, and one brash, abrasive, and sometimes overly confident demi-God. I loved the idea of the DoctorDonna and the energy transference.
I have but one problem, and please, try to follow my line of thought.
If he is considered as the TENTH Doctor, than it is impossible to ignore the existence of the EIGHTH Doctor. Now, as probably one of the hugest DW fans out there, I found myself disappointed with some of the main concepts of the final episode.
First of all the second Doctor, made from the energy transference between Donna and the Doctor's severed limb, is now infused with human. "I'm part human," he says. Wow. This is great, what a wonderful concept. Except that the EIGHTH Doctor in the 1996 film, told his American companion that his mother is human and thus he is half human. . . which then explains his fascination with saving human life.
I loved the concepts of the last episode but I was very disappointed to see the emphasis put on the "part-human" Doctor especially considering the acknowledgment of the EIGTH Doctor and his story. By all means, I encourage you to watch the video on Sidereel, you might just be asking yourself the same questions that I did and find yourself slightly disappointed at the main concepts of the last episode.
In some cases, I believe the episode to be a version of eye candy for the female viewers on three levels.
1. Two Doctors.
2. Doctor/Donna - Most important woman in the universe
3. Human Doctor/Rose love
Everyone comes out happy but the Doctor, of course, and that's the point of the episode. I feel so bad for the poor, neglected, half-human Eighth Doctor. Bad, Russel T. Davies, how dare you neglect him and create an entire mythology as if his half human self didn't exist?
