Donna’s first trip in the TARDIS and the story does so much to cement the Doctor-Companion relationship between the two. There’s a great conflict over whether the Doctor should interfere in Pompeii. The story mixes hilarity at the beginning with a steady of build of dramatic tension that ends in a powerful and beautifully written conclusion.

Brilliantly directed and superbly acted, this episode delivers on all the questions raised is the first part and then some. Donna's new life after being "saved" is brilliantly written and Catherine Tate turns in another amazing performance. The Tenth Doctor and River are both superb in this. The Vashta Nerada remain a terrifying monster throughout. At the same time, the story isn't afraid to subvert our expectations with the truth behind the rich sponsor of River Song's expedition and the false ending, which sets up one of the best sequences in the history of the show for the true ending.

Brilliant opening to the two parter, it has a superb sense of atmosphere and creepiness as it sets up so many mysteries and builds tension brilliantly throughout. There are so many questions but it never becomes overwhelming, partially because most of the answers will come in the course of the two parter. The Doctor's bewilderment at meeting River Song and find himself at a temporal disadvantage for once is classic. Catherine Tate does a good job showing her range and this is a good episode to show Donna's strength as a companion. The cliffhanger for the episode is superb and a moment when new Who feels like Classic Doctor at its best.

The Husbands of River Song begins as little more than a romp, a well-done entertaining bit of Christmas magic that has River not aware of the Doctor's new regeneration and the Doctor gets caught up in her latest caper to a steal a valuable diamond from the evil conquerer-where the diamond is lodged in his head. The first thirty minutes or so are entertaining and light.

Throughout the episode, Peter Capaldi is a joy to watch. The Doctor has some great comic moments including his entrance into the TARDIS and him laughing in the snow at River.The dramatic/romantic part of the plot is very well done. Capaldi communicates so much about saying a word. The Doctor wondering about what River really is like and whether she truly cares for him. The final 10-15 minutes are superb with a bit of time travel magic to finally bring River to the singing towers. It's a beautiful and sweet moment that's superbly acted and elevates the entire story.
