I do think Moffat is going to swing big this time. He'll either hit a homerun or miss it completely. I get the impression that he really feels like he's setting the series up for the next 50 years. I'm not sure that's even feasible because no single story has done that in the past 50.
However, I get the sense he wants to write a story that contributes as much to the entire series as much as say War Games and The Deadly Assassin.
With Assassin, I don't just mean the regeneration limit but the Time Lord culture.
Despite some stories that were meant to be epic in the new series, I don't think there were really any that changed and contributed to the series as much as a few of the classics.
I think Moffat is trying to change that!
