With the Doctor being cast out of the Tardis, it takes the Cardinal to literally throw him a life line in order for him to try and get everything back on track. We have the very misguided Dalek collaborator Alana, she is thinking that allowing the power behind the throne of the time lords will ingratiate her to her overlords, thus meeting her ultimate ends of the destruction of the time lords who in her opinion have wronged her families right, and ignored. The Doctor is running a race against time with his new friend Kalan to try and stop what could be the very end of the Timelords for good. He needs to stop Lara's efforts and he also now needs to stop the Daleks from un-suspending the Eye of Harmony, the Timelord secret power source from being turned into what it was supposed to be in the first place a black hole.

The final episode was both entertaining and instructive to me in both the history of the time war, I must at some point listen to the 7hr + Nick Briggs narrated epic on this very subject in his audio recording (https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Engines-of-War/dp/B00R8MLUNO). However back to this, it is head and shoulders above the previous story and draws me completely into what the War Doctor is all about, it is simply a much more precise and complete story. I relished Jacqueline Pearce's - Cardinal part she is so good, which begs the question over future Gallifrian drama releases with her in them, perhaps a spin off based around her exploits as Olistra. Hurt is superb in this outing, and he has amply good and formidable support in his assisting cast. All in a really, rather good ending to this third release.

A solid well-acted finale with several emotional high points as the traitor tries to destroy the Eye of Harmony. We also have some very nice exploration of Time Lord lore and of course, the personal cost of war.

The writing has a few weak spots in it. The dialogue is often a bit clich├ęd and the scene where the Dalek Time Strategist reveals his true intentions to betray the traitor is just not believable. Still, what holds the story together is incredibly good acting. So, the story is entertaining but could have been better.

A satisfying end. Great plot and performances. More on legend of eye of harmony and timelord history and a look at the personal impact and motives of it's fighters.
Need to watch 3.1 and 3.2 before hand but it's worth it.
