David Tennant time as the Dr draws nearer and nearer. The first of the final episodes aired last night on BBC America with the Waters of Mars. An eerie look on what must go through the time lords brain as he is inserted into events in time that are fixed. Knowing the out come and being helpless to change it and when he does defy the laws of time and interferes with fixed points there are serious consequences . This sets up the chain reaction that will ultimately lead to the Drs death which means his regeneration into a whole new Dr . But that is in the near future and lacking a time machine I can not tell you what will happen. However we can settle on the next best thing and post links to articles that have to do with the Time Lords last outings and behind the scene interviews with the writer and the actor.
Timeout with ‘Doctor Who’s’ David Tennant
(Complete story at the Los Angeles Times )
For another two weeks, David Tennant is still the space-time-traveling Doctor in ” Doctor Who,” the British sci-fi series that airs here on BBC America. After a year in which the show appeared only sporadically, as a series of “specials,” the end of the Tennant tenancy arrives all in a rush: “The Waters of Mars,” his penultimate adventure, premieres tonight, with the two-part finale, “The End of Time,” beginning Dec. 26. By the end of Part 2, which airs Jan. 2 — and this is not a spoiler — he will have died and regenerated into the form of his replacement, Matt Smith.

It’s the beginning of the end for Doctor Who.
Which for science-fiction television’s longest-living character (at the time of his debut in 1963, Star Trek was still three years away) always means a new beginning. When The Doctor dies, which he has already done nine times, he simply “regenerates” into a whole new actor
Doctor Who The Waters of Mars Review: Adieu, David Tennant
(Complete story at the HDRoom )
‘The Waters of Mars’ throws us into the action within its first six minutes. The Doctor arrives on Bowie Base One, humanity’s first off-Earth colony, and within moments the monsters are emerging as terror ensues.
The monsters are genuinely creepy and one of the more memorable designs in recent episodes. However to dwell on them is to miss the point of this episode. ‘The Waters of Mars’ is not about playing with the monster of the week but rather about showing the audience an internal conflict within the Doctor and the ramifications that his decision will have on him and those around him.
