Also, I'm happy that the resolution of the episode wasn't one of those, It was this all alone, kids... *coughs* I'm looking at you Time Heist *coughs* Of course we got a terrifying villain/monster in this episode, The Fisher King. And the confrontation between him and the Doctor was a classic Who style fight.
The supporting cast in this episode, as it is with two parters, had the opportunity to explore their characters a lot better than when you're there for just the one episode, which in turn made us, the audience, care for them.
Though I'm one that doesn't like sappy moments, I have to say that I was more than happy with the way the unrequited love and subsequent proposal ended. It was a good way to end an episode that was littered with so much death and darkness.
Next week is a highly anticipated episode in my house, as we're quite big fans of Game of Thrones, can't wait to see Maisie Williams as a Viking.
