Awesome! Details (spoilers, of course) below the jump.
Verdict: perfectly fine episode. What stopped it from being amazing? The hype surrounding it. I’ll probably wind up really loving this episode later. That happens with some of them.
More below the jump. Stuffed full of spoilers of course.
Not Fenris! Ha! What a red herring and am I ever so glad.
So … I’m quite satisfied with this episode for the most part. So annoyed that one of the main things I wanted to find out was not revealed. More on that in the review.
I am also quite satisfied that Moffat said no big arc next year. They’re fun, but they’re a bit tiring.
So, so sad.
Well. That’s not just incredibly sad is it? Good episode but I kinda just wish I hadn’t seen it.
I’ve heard rumors that Series Seven isn’t going to have a big story arc and isn’t going to be so heavy. Sort of looking forward to that. I’ve also heard it isn’t going to have that many episodes. Not so looking forward to that.
I don’t think any of the above is spoilery. You’ve either noticed the trend or you haven’t; this episode is part of the trend.
That was brisk. And exciting. Full review later. I’m processing. Oh and of course screencaps very soon.
