The episode may have been called “The Time of The Doctor,” but time was up for this current incarnation of The Doctor, Matt Smith. Where as his still beloved predecessor David Tennant seemed to get an entire year in order to let the audience say a proper goodbye, Smith would have to make due with one hour.
