I was rather unimpressed. It seemed like a greatest hits of Moffat's tics/flaws, and I'm generally a Moffat apologist.

While I've only viewed 3 episodes with Clara Oswald, I don't foresee things ending too well for her. In this episode we found out she gained her computer expertise after being returned from upload, and she demonstrated the same expertise in saving the Doctor from the Daleks in her first appearance. She was trapped inside a Dalek, then, and was destroyed, if you recall. I hope Moffat doesn't really end her like that. I'm still sorry for the way River ended up when Doctor #10 first met her--living the remainder of her days inside a simulation in the largest library in the universe.
Wife thinks, Clara is a computer program and the Doctor is trapped in some sorta Matrix. I think she is s time lord or a paradox. Either way, we like her and the episode. No 11th Hour, but better than Asylum and Mr and Mrs. Smith
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Way for them to premiere it on a Friday night. At 9pm. ...on St. Patrick's Day. It's not Christmas Eve or anything, but it's still a holiday that involves a ton of people celebrating it and/or going out.
