Brilliant. Everything I was expecting, and more. Of course, I could feel differently after a few rewatches, but I highly doubt it.

I loved it too. And yet another unexpected appearance - that new noise I made when I saw PM in The Night of the Doctor, I made it again tonight  Cheesy

Where's the option for 11?

Just so many great things, old and new, and that last surprise was just the icing on the cake.  And it promises a new (or old/new) direction for the show, too.

Absolutely brilliant. So so so so good. Definitely going to need another watch to fully understand and appreciate everything, but excellent.

Clara was excellent, Rose looked stunning and John Hurt - I want a season with HIM! Damn he was superb.

I got such chills when all the Doctors (and Capaldi!) appeared. Amazing.

Not perfect, but I'm gonna give it 5 anyway!

Reservations? Billie Piper was in it just to have Billie Piper in it, and you could probably say the same for Tom Baker's cameo (though I don't care!) They were a little bit tacked on. The different parts of the story maybe didn't meld quite as well as they could have done. Also, I would have liked a more complete regen. But considering how many things Moffatt had to do (all 13 doctors!) it was pretty remarkable.  And I wasn't fussed about how the treaty turned out -- the clever part was the use of ignorance (an idea of the political philosopher John Rawls, if anyone's interested)

Incidentally, was Tom Baker pictured on the screen in Gallifrey? I maybe saw a glimpse, but wasn't really sure. Did Ecclestone film anything new, or was he spliced in with the rest of them?

The clip of Eccleston was apparently lifted from The Parting of the Ways. He was invited back, but declined.

I did too!  I was actually bouncing in my chair and clapping!  I think that was a first for me.  LOL

I've watched it 3 times now; absolutely amazing each time!   Afro
