Excellent build up to the 50th!

What.A.Show! The episode begins on an epic scale and ends on an epic one! One would definitely not expect the character of Clara to unfold in this manner; truly, excellent script work, Moffat, I salute you with both hands. Season 7 was a disaster to be honest, very down scale, just above average, if even, but if fans are looking to gain their spirits back again and find back the Who fan within, this is the perfect episode for it! Oh, and keep a Kleenex near by if you're really really emotionally involved with the characters in this show. It's simply brilliant. To think we'd have to wait 6 months for the brilliant story behind the story of this episode, it's gonna be long, but I'm sure it'll be totally worth it!
