I enjoyed the season finale of Doctor Who. They really did pull out all the stops. I particularly liked seeing Elisabeth Sladen in her Doctor Who context again.

One thing I didn't pick up on: Who was pulling Donna and The Doctor together throughout their run? It seems that someone must have had a hand in it, but I couldn't figure it out. Future Rose and/or Future Humanish Doctor, trying to create their own happy ending? Doctor-Donna, knowing it must be done to save the universe? Perhaps this was clearer in the original; it's just the sort of thing Sci-Fi would cut.

I felt terrible for Donna, dialed back to her unexalted self without even a happy memory. At least the Doctor had a sharp word with her mother.

(I swear, Doctor Who has as many mommy issues as Lost has daddy issues. Martha's mom loves her, but she's rather harsh and is a terrible judge of character. Donna's mom is just horrid. Even Maria's mom on Sarah Jane Adventures is awful. At least Jackie Tyler seemed to have softened a bit by the end.)

This makes me a heretic, but I'm not very sorry to see the Daleks go. I didn't watch all their early stuff, so I just don't have the deep-seated feelings about them that many fans do. I find them a bit boring and cheesy.
