Review: Doctor Who: Key 2 Time – The Chaos Pool

The Chaos PoolWell, it’s all over. I’d say, “Thank God for that,” if it weren’t for the fact that it’s Sylvester McCoy stories for the next three releases. I might just sit those out.

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.

Given the budget cutting on recent episodes, we’ve all been expecting a big finale. All roads have been leading to a big fight, but with Tim Kring – who also wrote the disappointing season one finale – on writing duty, were we more likely to be annoyed than satisfied?

The answer has been revealed. After the jump.
