Notes:

  • What on earth was that? After such a spectacular buildup, he’s on Gallifrey, and we’ve not been given any prior clue throughout the season that Gallifrey was still around.
  • I don’t mind that the finale gives Clara a sendoff. I just don’t understand how it’s not a lazy deus ex machina. But then, I love Series 6, whhich everybody else thinks is too convoluted, so maybe I’m suffering from the same lack of comprehension that I mock other people for.
  • At least Clara gets to go out with more dignity than Donna Noble. That was a nice touch.
  • But all in all, I really can’t figure anything out. The Time Lords hired Ashildr in the twenty first century – how, if they were at the end of the universe for their own safety – to capture the Doctor to find out more about the Hybrid. But if hey can make it to the 21st century, why were they going through the rigmarole of having the Doctor break the diamond wall for two billion years? Shit is wack. Are they just going to resolve everything in Series 10?
