Re: 7X13 The Name Of The Doctor(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS!)

Fantastic teaser. Some predictable developments (of course we don't get his name), and overall.

Well, that was... Mostly good, covered a bit too many of the usual Moffat tropes we've already seen, but still did it for me. Doubtless will wind up certain fans by confirming a certain relationship. Great performances from Smith and Grant. Clara still beautiful, Strax very funny. (Hang on, so the Silence were trying to prevent the Great Intelligence from fucking up the universe?)

Had me in tears again, not for from the intended reasons but because... Yeah, more a trigger than an intended emotional manipulation. Just...

This season seems to have done to me a lot, being too personal, too close to home. Which you'd think is impossible for a series like Dr Who - but I know what it's like to lose a love and not get to say goodbye. And that means stuff like that Doctor River scene... really hurts.
