David Tennant has stepped out of the Tardis for the last time, leaving me (and many other fans) mourning his departure.
His final outing saw The Doctor saving Earth from being knocked out of orbit by his home planet, Gallifray, which had been brought back in time, and sacrificing himself to save Donna’s grandfather, Wilf. Sound confusing? You’re not alone.
It was a great episode with Tennant showing the range of his character but it was one of those storylines that you really needed to concentrate on and if you missed one subtle hint you ended up being very confused. There seemed to be a lot of unanswered questions, such as who really is Wilf, why was he so special, and who was the woman who kept appearing to Wilf? There seem to be plenty of theories out there, including that he is actually a Time Lord whose memories are stored in a pocket watch or some other amulet, similar to The Master in an earlier episode. If anybody can astonish me with their Doctor Who knowledge by helping to answer some of these questions it’d be greatly appreciated.
David Tennant has been a great Doctor and I’ll miss his wit and humour but I’m sure Matt Smith will bring something new to his character so I am eagerly awaiting the new series. If you can’t wait for the new series and need a Dr Who hit we have plenty of the DVDs as well as Dr Who books available at the library.
