I figured there'd be a lot of feelings about this episode. Since I have no connection to Classic Who, I liked it. The writers before made the Doctor super special even Classic Who writers wanted the Doctor to be more than. So this just continues it. I don't mind that the Doctor is not Gallifreyan, because if she's from a different dimension I'm interested in her trying to find where she is from. Those light things from the premiere were from another dimension maybe they are from the Doctor's real dimension.
If that's the last we've seen of the current companions, I'd have to laugh since she just dropped them of letting them think she died. Of course I guess it's better than most of them get. She didn't seem interested in sharing her life with them anyway, might as well let them think she's dead.
Good old Barristan Selmy always taking one for the team. I just figured the Doctor would do it, but being super special something else would save her.
What prison is she in. Is River there? Or maybe Jack. I can't wait for the Special and next season. With the Doctor having no regeneration limit this show could continue forever. And hey, she was ginger once.
