The BBC Press Office has released both synopses for The End of Time, here’s Part One:

It’s the Tenth Doctor’s final journey – but his psychotic nemesis the Master has been reborn, on Christmas Eve. With both determined to cheat death, the battle ranges from the wastelands of London to the mysterious Immortality Gate, while the alien Ood warn of an even greater danger approaching, as a terrible shadow falls across the entire Universe.

And Part Two:

The Doctor faces the end of his life as the Master’s plans hurtle out of control. With the sound of drums growing louder, and an ancient trap closing around the Earth, the Doctor and Wilf must fight alone. But sacrifices must be made, and the deadly prophecy warns: “He will knock four times.”

David Tennant stars as the Tenth Doctor and guest stars include John Simm, Bernard Cribbins, Catherine Tate, Timothy Dalton, David Harewood and June Whitfield.

The End Of Time – Parts One & Two are written by Russell T Davies and directed by Euros Lyn. The producer is Tracie Simpson. It will be simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC’s High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.


  1. In the Children In Need preview, the Elder of the Ood reminds me very much of Kalid, from the fifth Doctor story Timeflight. Similar mannerisms (hand gestures), similar muttered chanting….

    Kalid, of course, turned out to be the Master in disguise.

    Folk are speculating too that the Master's X-ray skull trick in the official trailer reminds them of the Master, circa Deadly Assassin.

    It's all go!
