Dr Who - Season 7 Part 2
But back to our story.
While not perhaps the strongest story I've seen, there was a lot going on with continuity and some nods to the Amy / Rory run. It does set up the second half of the season nicely, though.
The Doctor is as witty, funny and charming as ever and so, so clever. While I still pine after the David Tennant days, I still do love Matt Smith. He shows a bit of a vulnerability that the prior two doctors didn't really show as much, but he can also be hard as steel, the doom bringer.
The only negative thing I have to say is that there are only going to be 8 new episodes at this time. Strike that, 7 more new episodes. This frustrates me to no end. I realize all the seasons are 13 episodes, but I think it is the amount of time between part 1 and part 2 of the season that is throwing me off. I'm not even sure which season we are in anymore, although the episode guide tells me we are in Season 7...still.
The only thing I would advise is to watch the prequel video first. You can find it on the BBC Dr Who page. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p016r6pw.
