My first post has gone up over at Tor.com! I’m officially a paid writer! Well, I will be as soon as I send my invoice. 🙂 In any case, check out my review, “The End of Time” Brings the End of An Era.
Do not go gentle into that good night,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
– Dylan Thomas
It’s the end of an era. David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor, MY Doctor, and THE Doctor for many, many others, ended his four year run on BBC’s Doctor Who this weekend in the final part of the two-part episode, The End of Time. I’ll admit it. I shed some tears. What can I say? I’m a huge sap.
But what made The End of Time such great television wasn’t merely the passing of the torch from one Doctor to another. It wasn’t that we got to see so many faces from Who’s past. It was the fact that, at the end of the year, in the thick of the death of the world just before the New Year and the rebirth of things in the spring, Russell T. Davies told a story about what a frightening thing it is to die.
