The first part of David Tennant's final episode of Doctor Who as the lead role has been broadcast in both the U.K. and the U.S. Part 2 will be broadcast on January 1st and 2nd in each country respectively. It's nice to know that the BBC took my advice and had the two networks broadcast within 24 hours of each other to minimize piracy.
The first part was somewhat disappointing. The reasons for this cannot be explained without revealing key elements of the story. In fact, there is absolutely no way to talk about this episode without revealing major spoilers. With that in mind, I am refraining from my commentary until after the jump. You have been warned.
David Tennant was brilliant as usual. Bernard Cribbins was also quite good as Wilfred Mott. It was strange having a celebrity like Catherine Tate (playing the character of Donna Noble) have what amounted to an extended cameo. What most brought down the episode was Russell T. Davies' writing. The man can't leave this show fast enough to make room for Steven Moffat. Where to begin?
