“Trust me…I’m the Doctor”

David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor

I got a chance to catch up and watch the end of David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor. I thought the first part of “The End of Time” was overly drawn-out build-up, the second part delivered. It was the most touching regeneration I’ve seen, even with fairly contrived scenarios where the Doctor got to visit those who he’d adventured with over the last few years. It was also a farewell to Davies, who’s run the show since it came back from its hiatus, and it showed. In fact, a flashback to Eccleston’s Ninth Doctor is just about all that was missing from this, but I understand why it wasn’t there given that it’s Tennant’s swan song.

We’ve gotten a brief look at the Eleventh Doctor now, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the new crew fares. The trailer asks us to trust him, and I’ll do that for now.
