I have an ickily early morning tomorrow, but I won't be able to sleep until I have written myself off the DW finale.

Spoliers below!

I don't believe Missy/Master is gone. Everyone knows s/he is impossible to permantly kill off, and the Master, of all people, should know that. I think Missy had an idea of what might happen- or the Doctor had, and she got some of his regeneration energy. And voila, the Master is back. And if the Master becomes Missy in part because she was the last person who made an impression on him, she ought to turn into a Master that resembles him, which at this point was pretty old school Master. I for one wouldn't mind. I think it is very possible that the new Master will come back evil again-I'm certain really. It wouldn't do to have a permanetly good Master.

I loved Simms!Master this time around. I've always adored John Simms and I wanted to love his Master, but I didn't. However this cooler, but very cruel Master was pretty much perfect. I would have loved to have more of him. And Missy too!

And how wonderful wasn't it to have two Masters playing off each other? They did get along! I always thought they would, just because the Doctor never reallly does with himself. And of course the Master would be turned on by himself/herself. And how fitting of them to kill each other. And laugh about it.

Peter Capaldi was stellar, and I really, really don't want him to go. Well, at least we will have the Christmas episode.

I noticed they left an opening for a female Doctor.

I was completely surprised by One's appearance. Nice to not have everything spoiled. I foresee a lot of bickering in the next episode. I wonder if they will see Susan? I hope so.

Loved that Bill didn't die, but it would have worked better if Moffat hadn't pulled this stunt with Clara and Me last season. So now we have two sets of immortal females roaming the Universe? Very original. I prefer Bill not dying over Clara not dying. The whole of season 9 was a big plant for Clara actually dying- and then she sort of didn't. I found it more satisfying with Bill not dying as she had this enormous will to live, and curiousity. I really wanted her to stay for another season, though.

On the whole I thought this was a great season!
