Welcome friends, can we please take a moment to discuss the season finale of Doctor who?!? I know I haven’t been doing recaps this season of TV shows like I used to, but I’m working on getting things back up to old standards. With that being said let’s get to it here is your
************* SPOILER ALART************
So as we all (should) know by now this is season is the last for our doctor, both our companions, and our (not so) beloved writer. Ok now I get that it’s an unpopular opinion but I really am not sad to see moffet go. I do however have some mixed feelings on the loss of your current doctor!
This season has been a beautifully confusing but consistent rollercoaster of two parter/ multi-episode story lines that blended together in a Tennetesk season. With last weeks return of the one and only Master, and his team up with his future Regeneration Missy, this week promised to be a beautiful disaster for the doctor and his friends. Specifically Bill who they turned into a cyber man.
While I personally felt this episode was long and drawn out, we did get some lose ends tied up. Missy’s conflicted feelings of affection for the doctor, combined with her past self pushing for her to return to her life of evil made for a head spinning Ride of will she or won’t she. In the end the good in her prevailed ( as did her crush on the doctor) but her change of heart came a little to late and her counterpart the master refuses to let her aid his mortal enemy and kills her. The doctor blew up all the cyber men, triggering the start of his regeneration cycle. Between the Doctors hissy of not wanting to be a new person, and the revilation that Bill finally get to be with the Lady in the water, who saved her after the doctor killed the cybermen, the final 20 minutes defiantly hit you right in the feels.
The doctor relived all his companions giving us a glimps of Amy, Rose, and of course River, but then something unexpected happens Capaldi runs into the “Original” Doctor, played by David Bradly who revives the roll that was originated by William hartnell.
We go out on a heart breaking identity crisis as he runs into his former self, leaving whovians everywhere on pins and needles as we desporatly await the announcement of who the next doctor might be!
