wealhtheow: sepia close-up of Medusa (doctorthepedo)

So I saw RTD's finale tonight.  I'd expected it to be over-wrought, and oh boy it was.  The plot still made no sense.  There were far too many "humorous" bits shoved in.  And the over-acting.  Dear sweet baby jesus, the over acting.  Did Tennant really need thirty minutes worth of goodbyes and sulky death scenes?  So damn tedious.

But.  That one moment after the Gallifreyans have left, when the Doctor is crouched on the floor in relief, and then--the four taps.  Chilling.  That one moment (and the great acting by much of the supporting cast) made the special almost worth watching.

And now, we are free!  Free of Tenant's clenched teeth "acting" and RTD's Issues!  Free to enjoy episodes with plots that hang together, and dialog that doesn't constantly refer to prophecies, and memorable supporting characters!  Joyous day!
