    I thought it was a solid episode even though it was a bit messy. 11th’s final speech was great and he went out like a sir.

    It would have been cool if the 12th was a woman or another race, but I think Capaldi will be fantastic.

    I was disappointed. There were holes you could fly a TARDIS through! I’m sorry to see Matt Smith go since he’s the first Doctor I really related to. My interest will go back to pre-Smith levels with Capaldi. I hope it’s better than I’m expecting moving forward.

    I enjoyed it overall, but I feel there was a bit too much telling and too little showing. A lot of plot threads tied up, but so many of them were done with throw-away lines or montage voice-overs… It just felt like this could have been done a bit better if they tried to wrap up all those dangling plot threads in a couple of episodes instead of just this one.

    I was disappointed. The story was weak and not thought out. I am sorry to see Matt Smith go. The regeneration didn’t actually happen in my mind. He just did 1 head bang or flinch and he was Peter Capaldi. Matt Smith deserved a better exit than that. Might be the last new episode of Doctor Who I watch. The show has been going down hill since Moffat took over, this episode may have been the last straw for me.

    I enjoyed it the first run through, then I watched the last fifteen minutes of the repeat before going to bed. It gave me sad dreams I don’t quite remember. Except one that was about tragic things happening to the characters of Parks and Recreation.

    One thing I like about Doctor Who is that it allows for so many different kinds of stories. This is one of the kinds I like. Lots of nice references to the history and lore of Doctor Who.
    I liked the way Moffat resolved the the 12 regeneration limit.
    Now, once again, I have to figure out if I like the new doctor. So far I’ve come to like almost every one.

    I enjoyed the episode overall, there were plot holes to be sure, but on first viewing they didn’t matter that much. I enjoyed that Smith was given an ending that fitted his run, and they didn’t make it overblown and saccharine like Tennant’s final episode. I enjoyed the wrapping up of many different elements from the past three years, and really enjoyed the blowing up regeneration; all in all sad to see Smith go, but want to see where the Doctor goes next.

    It was okay, love me some Amy Pond though. Maybe a little Tasha too.
