I liked it.
I only wish it was a full episode long.
One mistake --- how would Davison know about L.I.N.D.A. ?
I liked how they explained Davison being older.....
Even to the point of Tennant making fun Davison's jacket cant close :)
Also, notice 80's style keyboard background music in some scenes :)

I hope they use the whole thing in the next series dvd boxset, the end of the last series makes a bit more sense now.

Thanks t1k I missed this, I just caught the end, my daughter was in tears.
I am the good Dad again.

When Davison mentioned the TARDIS "desk top theme" was once leapard skin, was he refering to a particual incident ?
Or was that just a joke the writer threw in ?

That was brilliant, the desktop theme thing was a good way of explaining how the doctor's change the Tardis, funny. A really nicely done homage to Davison's Doctor, who I will admit I'm much fonder of now than when it originally aired.

I think my biggest complaint would be Tennant saying "you were my Doctor" at the end.
In reality, Tennant has said on many occassions Tom Baker was his favourite Doctor.
Tennant also seems to have patterned himself after Tom Baker's Doctor as well.
So the "you were my Doctor" comment seemed obviously insincere and gratuitous...
But, I still liked it a real lot :)

It could have been the writers words, not Tennant's.
Nov 17, '07, 5:08 PM
I suspect that as well.
In a way, the scenes when they were together almost remind me of Troughton and Pertwee in BOTH The Three Doctors -- and The Five Doctors.
I almost wish Davison's departure was handled the same way as both stories above...
The ending was ok --- but I just wish Tennant's Doctor wasn't so --- almost groveling.
edited to add.......
This episode's hype did revive my interest in the Davison era too.
I actually liked this era --- even from the start (not counting the first week I found out Tom Baker's Doctor died and I was mad as hell-- and wondered WHO IS THIS DAMN KID !!! ) :)

When Davison entered the scene I was a ravenous Who fan and I had a lot of hope that this would usher in some change. I liked the new companions and the more serious storylines washed away the camp of earlier seasons.
But his era was a mixed bag, some real clunkers in there, I remember hating "Four to Doomsday" and "Kinda" especially. I also thought Davison struggled intially with finding his character.
However, I always liked him as the Doctor, that worked for me. A recent rewatch of "The Visitation" actually surprised me how good he really was.

That was very cool! I really enjoyed that...as short as it was though.

I always liked the davison years but I think a big part of that was Anthony Ainleys Master was as smooth and debonair as Delgado's (the new master should take notes).

Crazy thought I just had.......
Peter Davison (the youngest Doctor Who ever) --- is now--IN TIME CRASH, older than Willaim Hartnell was in his first year as the Doctor in 1963.

Davison is Tennents and Moffets favourite Doctor apparently...I enjoyed the scene as Moffet is easily the best writer of the revamped show. It bugged me slightly that he had obviously been given the job to plaster over the plot holes in the previous series ..such as the line about the shields being down on the TARDIS so the fans wouldn't be in uproar over the fact that the Titanic rips through the TARDIS wall. One thing however...in the first series with Eccleston not only was there a picture of his Doctor with a family on the docks by the Titanic but he also states that he was on a boat once a big one that was said to be unsinkable...does this mean we'll have a cameo of Eccleston in the Xmas special or (more probable) will it be ignored.
I wait with bated breath

Time crash will be added as an extra on the dvd of the christmas special as well as the obligatory confidential.

POV from the 5th Doctor
Feb 11, '08, 10:56 AM
I'd still like to see Tom Baker do a cameo as the 4th Doctor.
Baker is kind of like Shatner...
People don't care that he's fat and old..
Most people (especially Americans) accept Baker as the definitive Doctor.
Tom doing a cameo would really legitimatize the new series over here in the eyes of a lot of old time fans--- who only know TOM BAKER is Doctor Who.

I've seen Tom in somthing not to long ago. Couldn't tell it was him. Much to much weight on him, and he would need a wig.

Tom's popularity in England is at an all time high again after appearances in the remake of "Randel and Hopkirk Deceased" and the narrator on "Little Britain"...he was also the voice of British Telecom's(phone company) message service where you could call up the service and Tom's voice would relay it to the recipricant.
