This was probably the most anticipated episode of the season for hardcore Doctor Who fans – moreso than the finale next week. Why?
It was written by Neil Gaiman.
If the name doesn’t sound familiar perhaps the title of the last episode he wrote for Doctor Who will – The Doctor’s Wife. It’s a personal favorite of mine and is widely considered the best episode of “New” Doctor Who since Blink.
Did this episode deliver? Yes.
Is is better than the Doctor’s Wife? No.
