Captain Jack (John Barrowman) is back, and as a hello, he sends Doctor Who's (David Tennant) time and spacemachine TARDIS a few trillion years into the future, right to the end of the universe, where the Doctor, Cap Jack and the Doctor's companion Martha (Freema Agyeman) stumble upon the last humans who are threatened by your typical mutants and who want to go to Utopia by a spaceship the ingenious Professor Yana (Derek Jacobi) is building - but apparently it needs the help of the Doctor to really launch the rocket into space.

Thing is, Professor Yana isn't really Professor Yana but the Doctor's arch-enemy the Master in human disguise, and once he gets rid of the disguise (and turns out to be John Simm), he steals the Doctor's TARDIS and goes back to present day London ...

Fortunately, Captain Jack has a timetravel device himself, so he, the Doctor and Martha go after the Master - only to find out he has since become Prime Minister of the UK, using some sort of mass hypnosis transmitted via cellular phones. But his plans are far bigger, he has the earth overrun by flying spheres that kill or enslave most of humanity and that eventually turn out to be the humans from trillion years into the future - which would be a paradox (humans killing their own ancestors) which is why the Master needed the Doctor's TARDIS to build a paradox-machine. The Doctor and company want to stop the obvious madman, who plans to eventually conquer the universe from earth as his homebase, but the Master manages to age the Doctor into some sort of methusalem and apprehend and chain up Captain Jack, only Martha escapes - and from now on she's the resistance's only hope, because only she knows how to get rid of the Master.

And how does she ?

She uses the Master's own device, the cellular phone net against him by feeding it with information about the Doctor and makes sure that everybody thinks about the Doctor at exactly the same time and boom, the Doctor becomes young again and he and his friends ultimately manage to overthrow the Master, who is ultimately even killed by his own wife (Alexandra Moen), who up until now was the Master's closest ally in all his evil deeds ...

With that accomplished, the Doctor dismantles the paradox machine, turning everything back to like it was before the spheres started conquering the earth.

In your usual sappy ending, Martha bids farewell to the Doctor.

 

A less than convincing season finale that not only recycles large chunks from season 1's season finale (click here) but also has a story that seems to be all over the place but has nowhere particular to go. And the reappearance of Captain Jack (of Torchwood fame) does not really make too much sense in the narrative context of the episode either, nor the revelation that he is actually immortal. The main failure of the triple episode though is that it piles one interesting context upon the other and never really takes time to explore any of them, which leaves them stale and uninteresting - and thus the end of the universe, mass hypnosis via the cellphone net, the paradox machine, spheres conquering the earth, an immortal character and the overcoming of an enemy by human thought rather than weapons, interesting as all of this sounds, amount to very little. An esoteric and unconvincing finale of course doesn't help much either ...

A disappointment.
