Is it Christmas yet? No? How about now? Still no? Why can’t time go faster? I wish I had a time machine. Which leads us on to this particular episode…
I’ll start by saying this is the kind of episode you couldn’t just start watching, say, half of the way through. It’s very, very complicated, and it’s confusing even if you’ve watched all of it. I think it’s a very good episode, one of the best in the series (but I’ve said that about every episode so far), and it tied up a lot of loose ends. But, in typical Steven Moffat fashion, it also opened up a lot of… well, beginnings (?). We were told we would get a hint of what was going to happen in the next series (like last year, with the Silence) and we got that hint. And I’m sure every Doctor Who fan out there is thinking about that hint, and they will be for a long time.
The Silence were mentioned in Series 5, and they appeared in Series 6. And it seems they might actually be back next year, because silence hasn’t actually fallen yet. And that’s related to the hint. Which is, in fact, a question. Look away if you don’t want to know what the oldest question in the universe is…
How they are going to answer that I have no idea.
So, basically, amazing episode, amazing series. Unfortunately, I haven’t reviewed the first part of Series 6 yet, but I probably will. Maybe.
To help pass the time before Christmas, Merlin is back. And that is what I’ll be reviewing very, very soon. Stay tuned!
