Starting with Rose's heart-breaking monologue and ending in quite possibly the best cliffhanger for a Doctor Who two-parter in recent memory, this episode is full of surprises, returning characters both good as well as evil, great characterization, and more. It's just brilliant all around. The only drawbacks are that it's steeped in Who mythology and for those who for some reason to choose this as their first episode of the current incarnation of Doctor Who will be lost and the other thing is not a detriment of the show in the least. More a detriment to me, as so much happens that I truly can't talk about the actual plot too much without spoiling it. And trust me, this IS an episode you'd want to go into knowing nothing about.

My grade: A
