The first half of the season finale of Doctor Who aired Saturday and it was a doozy. There was so much that happened this episode and it has potential Who ramifications. Many people have done discussions or reviews, and so instead I just want to take a moment to discuss a few of my favorite moments from the episode. The episode itself was great, but there were definitely some moments that stood out from the rest. They either really activated the characters or did such a great job of the reveal moments. The tension that these moments created kept us at the edge of our seats!

I cannot even imagine what that would do to you, but I think could be part of the reason that a Doctor that looks older is a good decision.
