Absolutely AMAZING.
8 November 2014 | by callumtrevittSee all my reviews

First of all, it'd be just wrong to give this episode anything below an 8. I saw that the ratings vote opened before it aired and a few people voted for a 1, which is unbelievably moronic and pathetic.

Anyway, onto the review. This episode is probably one of the best we've ever seen (as a two parter). (and obviously the best finale/cyberman episode). It's extremely sad to see Jenna Coleman 'leave' Doctor Who and also the fan favourite Osgood. We were thrown into the deep end at this episode and thrown out of our comfort zones (which is brilliant). We now know that the Doctor IS truly a good man.

The interruption of the credit scene at the end was truly hilarious and brilliant! Steven Moffat is an artist and this is his best piece of work ever.
