I'm a bit amazed so many people were so impressed by it. The story was an absolute mess. Was it just the tag team action?
There was some story in there? I must have blinked and missed it!
I'm still trying to work out if it was a good episode or not.
With the inclusion of Sarah-Jane, Torchwood, UNIT, Rose, Davros, Harriet Jones and half a dozen others, the episode had an inordinately huge fan-wank quotient, and because they kept hitting you over the head with it you never really had the time, whilst viewing it, to digest what was going on.
Looking back on it now, I'd have to say it was an entertaining 45 minutes, but I'm concerned - after last years "reset button" finish - about what kind of rabbit is going to be pulled out of the hat this Saturday to tie everything up.
It could be utterly brilliant, but I just don't have the faith in Davis at this point that it will be.
Either way, I'll be very surprised if this week's episode is the end of Tennant, I would have expected more of a goodbye scene if he was really bowing out, but if they do have a surprise successor waiting in the wings, hats off to them for keeping it under wraps!
