Matthew and Stephen sat down to watch the Time of the Doctor and have a few things to say about the final appearance of Matt Smith as The Doctor (that we know of).

Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

  1. Thanks for doing this Dueling Review! I loved this special — I started watching Doctor Who in the Eleventh Doctor era thanks to Major Spoilers, so this was a nice bookend to my experience with Matt Smith.

    Thanks again! I’m looking forward to your Dueling Review of Peter Capaldi’s first episode as the Doctor!

  2. Stephen, I’m telling you: Peter Cushing is the 13th Doctor AND the Valeyard! Peter Capaldi regenerates into the Valeyard, who torments the sixth doctor. The sixth doctor defeats him and he is banished to another universe: the Star Wars universe! He regenerates into the Peter Cushing body, still evil, and destroys Alderaan. The explosion of the Death Star sends him and his Tardis hurtling back into the who-niverse, where he loses all his memory and spends his time trying to recreate things he vaguely rememberS, but gets things wrong, which explains why the things in the Cushing movie are just slightly off: he doesn’t remember things properly and pieces them together from the fragments he has. Boom.
