Big spoilers ahead.



I'm serious. Spoilers.

Yes, I was surprised by the presence of Jenna Louise Coleman. However. It seems to me that the episode depends on the viewer recognizing her as the coming new companion. Because if you don't have any expectations about her character's survival, there's a lot less of a twist to her turning out to be a Dalek and dying at the end. If it had been some generic guest star, I think half the audience would have seen the ending coming a mile away. We've seen this sort of story before. For example, the DS9 episode The Sound of Her Voice, which had a different twist when the main characters finally found the person they'd been talking to on subspace radio, and I'm sure I've seen at least a couple of other variations on the idea.

And was that the crack from Amy's wall floating in space in one shot? And did the nanogene thing get cleared up? And as others have pointed out, the Daleks had a pretty easy time of it rounding up the Doctor and his pals... why didn't they do that ages ago?

And the question has been asked, loudly: Doctor Who? What kind of answer can provide a proper payoff for that? How many of Moffat's arcs are still in play?

Oh, and I liked it a lot, more than a lot of Moffat-era episodes.
