My review of this year’s season finale is coming very late, mostly because I was so blown away by it. The previous episode brought together so much of the season and left the universe in dire peril. It turns out, it was even worse than that, but The Doctor managed to save the day. Things will be spoiled should you decide to read on.
Before the opening credits rolled, it became clear that everything that’s happened this season has been for a reason and nothing was left out. It’s a testament to Steven Moffat’s talents that he’s taken his new creations and made them such a compelling part of the series, while at the same time acknowledging the show’s history. With all the changes that came this season (a new Doctor, new companions and a new head writer) it’s obvious the show is in good hands.
Flesh and Stone, the second part of what is quickly becoming one of my favorite Doctor Who stories of all time, aired this Saturday on BBC America. The follow up to The Time of Angels was fantastic.
Spoilers to follow.
