Storyline

In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year. The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler. Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruelest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid. Written by BBC Press Release

Let's Kill Hitler... With a title this good it's got a lot to live up to. And it does.

This is our second trip into WW2 for NuWho and third overall, excluding spinoffs and extended media. The plot sees the TARDIS hijacked by a young Doctor-obsessed woman with a gun demanding that the 11th Doctor take her to kill Hitler only for the disgusting moustached man to shoot her and cause her to... regenerate? SHE'S RIVER SONG!!!! As twists go it's hard to beat.

This story deals a lot with Song's origins by building upon the foundations set in the previous instalment and it advances the story arc of the Doctor's apparent death via the Tessalecta, a robot controlled by tiny people who travel through time punishing war criminals. And it turns out that there's none more dangerous or deadly than Melody Pond.

This episode has received a lot of unfair and harsh treatment over time by the fandom but it's unwarranted. There's nothing that bad in here, nothing to dislike, nothing but good writing and good acting and good direction. I can't see the problem myself. 7/10
