Continuity[ edit ] In the episode's commentary, writer Russell T Davies called the implication of Jack's nickname "the Face of Boe " "a theory" as to the Face of Boe's origins, prompting Executive Producer Julie Gardner to urge him to "stop back-pedalling" about the two characters being the same. Davies then mentioned the addition of a line in " Gridlock " in which the Face of Boe calls the Doctor an "old friend", suggesting a strong connection between him and the Doctor.

Uncredited as the hand that picks up the Master's ring was production manager Tracie Simpson. Stephen Brook, writing on The Guardian 's blog, said the episode was "certainly an epic conclusion Though he thought there was "loads to enjoy" such as John Simm as the Master, Freema Agyeman's performance, and the effects, he wished to explore more of the dystopian world and said of the conclusion, "I liked the message it was trying to get across, but the shots of a ghostly Tennant floating down the steps did unfortunately look like something out of a panto.
However, he thought the biggest "misstep" was sidelining the Doctor and the "logically muddy" conclusion. The Master indifferently responds that once an empire has been established, when there is a new Gallifrey in the heavens then it will stop.
When a Toclafane enters, the Master chastises the Doctor that he should be grateful: It claims that there was no Utopiaonly more darkness and cold. Meanwhile on the Valiant, the Master explains that the humans cannibalised and regressed themselves, becoming the child-like Toclafane.

After Martha and Tom depart for a shelter in Bexley to hide, Docherty who is desperate for information regarding her missing son reveals their whereabouts to the Master. The Master comes to Earth's surface to capture Martha, killing Milligan, destroying the special gun and taking her back to the Valiant. He intends to execute her before the Doctor and her family, at the moment his fleet is launched.
But when that moment comes, as the clock counts down, Martha starts to laugh out loud, prompting the Master to angrily demand to know what she finds so funny. Martha now reveals the real reason she travelled the globe: She told everyone about the Doctor; specifically, she told everyone to think of the Doctor at the same time the Master plans to launch his fleet.
It is revealed that when the Doctor whispered to Martha in the previous episode, he said: Combined with the Master's Archangel Networkwhich the Doctor has had an entire year to tune to the frequency of, this has the effect of charging the Doctor with the combined psychic energy of the people of Earth. This enables the Doctor to restore his youthful physiognomy and end the Master's control.
The combined psychic energy gives the Doctor great power and he is not only able to restore himself with it, but it shields him and temporarily grants him telekinesis with which he removes the Master's laser screwdriver from his hand.

Time reverses to the moment of the Paradox machine's activation, just after the US President was killed and just before the Toclafane arrived. All those on the Valiant will remember the events of the previous year due to being at "the eye of the storm," but nobody else will know of the Master's reign of terror in " the year that never was ".

Francine Jones is talked out of shooting the Master, but Lucy Saxon, with a glazed expression, seizes a gun herself and shoots him. Rather than be a prisoner for the rest of his lives, the Master lets himself die, refusing to regenerate despite the Doctor's desperate pleas. Just before dying in his opponent's arms, the Master muses on the constant drumming in his head, wondering if it will finally stop, and with a smile says, "I win," leaving the heartbroken Doctor in uncontrollable tears for his lost adversary, now once again left as the last of the Time Lords.
The Doctor walks away from the Master's smouldering funeral pyre. The Doctor cremates the Master's body on a pyre.
