    OH. MY. GOD. The teaser alone just about makes up for every weak episode this season.

    Strax is Glaswegian... THIS EXPLAINS SO MUCH. I know somebody who will be very pleased to learn this...

    The OTHER psychic paper.

    "The little... daleks"

    "If you are a time traveller there is one place you must never go" and "The Doctor has a secret that he will take to his grave. It is discovered" Wow. That was a creepy, hairs standing up twist.

    TARDIS falls from orbit with every system off, sustains nothing more than a cracked window. I LOVE this ship.

    Strax seems to be more back to his usual self. I approve.

    Is the GI talking about... the Valeyard? ARGH! HE SAID IT!

    Yowzer... nice touch. He said he'd never say it again, but then the Doctor always lies.

    "Do not divulge our military secrets!"

    Please tell me Strax comes back...

    Wow. Wow. Just... wow.
    And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now... the clock is striking Twelve's.

    Ok... I feel the need to quote my own initial thoughts as written in my Facebook status about 45 seconds after the episode ended:

    So, was this episode actually leaked or just news, as I just did a search, and couldnt find anything really related to this episode...
    Also, seems the apparent leaked 50th Anniversary synopsis was wrong...

    Gentlemen, I couldn't have put it better myself.

    Mr Moffatt - for this episode (and several others), and for the genius that I now know we'll be witnessing in the 50th Anniversary, you sir, should be made a sir. Sir The Moff - has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

    The inclusion of some of Murray Gold's older music, particularly that utterly beautiful Gallifrey theme, just rounded out a superb episode. Every misstep this season is forgiven because this episode was just so, so worth the wait.

    One thing I forgot to add (I'm already rewatching it)... Matt Smith's acting when the Doctor first finds out he has to go to Trenzalore from Clara got me a little choked up. Bravo to you, Matt. No joking, no hyperbole... that was just utterly beautiful, heartfelt acting that really got to me, and that doesn't often happen. This is why he's my favourite Doctor.

    Sadly the ending was slightly spoiled for me by a somewhat negligent and oblivious (but admittedly not malicious) person, but it was still fantastic. This episode was just brilliant, as much a love letter to Who fans as a series finale.

    27.3 out of 10, at least.
    And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now... the clock is striking Twelve's.

    Valeyard

    other than that.... meh... and finally WHAT?!


    People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint... it happens to kinda look like the name 'Jeremy Bearimy' in cursive English.

    1. Took a while before the Doctor showed up.

    2. What we got was creepy from the start though.

    3. Giant TARDIS...no wonder the TARDIS didn't like the idea.

    4. Very cool FX with the older Doctors.

    5. So 21st century Clara is the original.

    Very creepy and very cool!

    One thing I was a bit unclear on -- was the River in this episode supposed to be the post-death Library backup River? That's definitely the impression I had, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how that's possible.

    One word. I've just got one word for you all, and you'd better hear it. One word that brings this whole universe to a halt.

    Oh wait, nevermind.

    Oh yes - Valeyard.

    If John Hurt is indeed playing the Valeyard, then I applaud thee... I applaud and I love it. An origins story for the Valeyard would be awesome, especially as we approach his "beginning" (ie between 12 and 13).

    BUT... If Hurt is simply playing some as til now unknown Doctor... If he's playing the dark and nasty Time War Doctor (which surely should be McGann anyway), or some other deep dark secret Doctor that is going to add to our mythology a NEW BAD DOCTOR... Then I'm done... and I'll come back when Moffat is gone...

    (Oh, and now we've had past Doctors, I don't anticipate seeing any past Doctor actors, nor any further clip/CGI Doctors in the Anniversary... which was what I was suspecting they'd do...)
    as seen on YouTube - thecosmichobo
    "How Doomsday Should Have Ended!" • "Bigger on the Inside?" • "The Doctor Falls - With Hartnell!"
    "The War Games - In 10 Minutes" • "Announcement of Jon Pertwee's death" •
    and lots more!
