Doctor Donna

OK so I'm new to the series and watched it pretty much out of order. I'm catching up on the episodes i never saw but cant help myself when i see it on tv. So i wound up watching the season four finale, both parts, and i was wondering how that ending could possibly make sense.


If Donna had to be wiped of her memories because a time lord human biological meta crisis was not suppose to exist and would kill her, then how would the now part human Doctor, who stood at bad wolf bay with Rose, be any different? Maybe he was just talking to fast and using to many big words for me to understand but if the time lord human biological meta crisis worked both ways and the second Doctor became human but was still a time lord then how come he wouldnt face the same fate as Donna? Why would the real Doctor leave him with Rose under the impression that they could spend their life together?

I think the answer prolly lies somewhere in the fact that doctor donna had become something she wasn't and the halfdoctor was more human then timelord maybe? and born that way? *MAYBE*

Heather00724, i guess that makes sense. he was constructed to be both, "born" as you said, where as she was born simply human.

The second doctor started off timelord (the doctors hand), where as donna started off human, I think the logic that they used was you can downgrade a time lord, but not upgrade a human.

No the Doctor that was created was entirely human, it says that in the episode.

I would agree with kimikim913 and AnthonyH2. I thought that it was like the doctor was now missing some aspects of being timelord, so that he has only one heart and will age, but he can still function. Who knows, maybe he is less intelligent now or lacks his telepathic powers?
Donna, however, had something added to her body/brain/mind which made her more intelligent and timelord, but wasn't 'compatible' with her human nature, sent her into overdrive and nearly fried her brain. That's how I understood it, anyway.
Oh and btw, did anyone notice that the Doctor's true nature turned out to be violent, dangerous- and half-human? No wonder he feels such a strong pull towards Earth.
