I suppose, when I first go into it, I'm more interested in the old Doctor's ending. But, on repeat viewings, once I've gotten to know the new Doctor a bit better, I'm more interested in seeing him show up. At least, that's definately how I've felt about "The End of Time." When I first watched it, I really wasn't sure about Matt Smith at all. I was more caught up in Tennant's departure (even as I was screaming for him to get on with it!). But now that Smith as firmly established himself as one of my favorite Doctors, I've found that the last 2 minutes of "The End of Time" is my favorite part of the episode. Now, when Matt Smith shows up, it's like my old friend has finally arrived.
I feel rather very different about the last two mins of End of Time. I feel when Smith turns up, I think to myself how awesome Smith would have been if RTD wrote for him, instead we got Moffat and a sitty era of Doctor Who, and I feel cheated out of a good doctor.

You do know, though, that Smith's lines in End of Time were written by Moffat himself, right?

RTD only wrote for the Eleventh Doctor when he guest-starred in The Sarah Jane Chronicles episode, Death of the Doctor.

I did not know that...................

You mean Sarah Jane Adventures

While I don't particularly like SJA, that episode was one of the better ones. Both of the ones with the doctor in were good. Plus Jo came back too!

And it's the first time that any new Doctor really did anything worth mentioning at the end of a regeneration story anyway.
Right. Six was the first Doctor to get any dialogue at the end of a regeneration story. I remember a DWM review of Logopolis where the review commented on what a 'nice surprise' it was that Peter Davison actually sat up after regenerating.
