After that last, somewhat critical, post, I feel compelled to add:

There is so much to love about this episode.

SPOILER ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

SPOILER ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!

The conversation between the Doctor and Clara about his death – about the necessity for his death – is heart-wrenching. Capaldi and Coleman are magic in this scene. The questions raised about the bootstrap paradox – the original source of the looped ideas – are essential and compelling. O’Donnell’s fangirling! Clara’s determination! Lunn’s courage! Bennett’s grief! The SOUND DESIGN as Moran stalks Cass through the corridors! So chilling and beautiful!

The diverse cast too is a wonderful thing to have. Fans have spent the last ten years demanding better of the show, and the show is beginning to deliver.

It’s a great episode and I love it.
