The conclusion to last week’s mysterious scary episode by Steven Moffat is suitably dark, but though it answers a lot of the questions posed, it also leaves some of the mysteries open. Who is River Song? Much is implied, but nothing is resolved. Very nice.
Donna’s story also took a heartwarming, and yet heartbreaking, twist, very compellingly acted. And the two very young kids playing her children are unexpectedly good, too.
If this is the expected direction of the series after Steven Moffat takes over the reigns, then we are in for a seriously thrilling treat! He really knows how to take the whole idea of Doctor Who and bend it into an exciting, funny, and unique storytelling vehicle.
I am very excited for the show’s future.
