I have been a fan of Doctor Who for 25 years. I have seen pretty much every episode of 5, 6, 9, 10 and 11, and a lot of the other incarnations (minus all those missing years of 2). I have smiled, frowned, gasped, even shrugged at all the faces and all the companions, all the good guys and all the bad. I have waited for the show to return, and stuck it out through the great and the not so great.

So I think it means a lot when I say that I have never, ever been happier with the show than I am today. Yes, I think if analyze the plot here, everything might come tumbling down. So I will instead bask in the strength of the storytelling and the emotion and the acting. Matt Smith has taken his place alongside Tom Baker, Peter Davison, and David Tennant. Karen Gillen is on the short list of amazing companions. And this finale was a tour de force that was at once gripping, hysterical and moving. It has been a long time since I was as pleased with an hour of TV as I am now.

I cannot wait to see what comes next from Eleven and Amy and everyone else. Steven Moffatt, I tip my hat to you.

The plot made noooo sense, at least that I could tell. Better not to poke at it! I sort of enjoyed giving myself a headache trying to unravel it, though.

And the rest, yes, it's like I'm remembering why I fell in love with the series in the first place. It's about the most joyful experience watching a TV show I've had in a while. Sheer, glorious, well-acted, emotion and wacky adventure fun.

I loved it. Though I'm always a sucker for plots that bring the entire series together.

My brain did point out half way through that 1. I thought the Doctor couldn't go back on his own time stream? and 2. He could not have helped his past self without having already somehow survived to become his future self, which could not have happened without helping his past self (but hey, I forgave Bill and Ted for that one).
