I'll save my full blown review when the story is complete but as usual Moffat and Doctor Who never disappoints especially with this chiller of an episode providing us with a slew of iconic imagery to go with the already bursting array of memorable moments which this show is notorious for providing.
The first part provides so much beautiful setup for what could be an incredibly striking second part.
We're just gonna have to get used to this when Moffat takes over in 2010.
