I think the important thing is too not go in expecting a masterpiece of television, considering the heights that other Christmas specials such as "A Christmas carol" and "The Snowmen." and "Last Christmas." and "Husbands of River Song." reached, return of Doctor Mysterio can seem like something of a come down. Even more so considering it was the only episode of Doctor Who that we had, on telly at least.

But I think that on it's own it's a nice hour long adventure with our favourite doctor and while I don't think it will near the top of the best Christmas special lists I think it's well worth a watch on it's own, Peter Capaldi at the very least is always worth a watch. I think we can all agree to that.

I quite like this story, although the plot was a bit silly and the Master's new powers are completely out of the blue.
We finally get some context about the Time War and what pushed the Doctor to end it all in the end. There are also some great emotional moments with Wilf and the Doctor. Overall I felt it was a fitting end to David Tennant's era.

I have a bit of a problem with the regeneration though. I can't help but compare it to the Fifth's, as both Doctors sacrifice for their companion. However, whereas the Fifth didn't even think about it, the Tenth was really a whiny baby and it seems even considered letting Wilf die. It's made even worse by the fact that Five didn't even know if he would regenerate.

Yes this isn't what it needed to be. We wanted a story that involved the Doctor back on Gallifrey for the first time, that has been wasted now. Yes, Clara had a great exit in Face the Raven and her story should have ended there. But what we got wasn't bad; we were given a story that Moffat wanted to tell. It's not what we wanted and I still would prefer tl see what that could've been but i'm fine with Hell Bent, not the best, but certainly not the worst of Moffat's outings.

This story suffers from many things: an uninspired guest cast (exception: Abdul Salas as the obsessed city worker,) a poorly executed plot, difficulty in finding the right tone for the story, it's similarity to an early Series 2 episode (The Idiot's Lantern,) and numerous moments to celebrate Britain getting to host the 2012 Olympiad that come off as a bit cheesy.

However, what saves the story is the two leads. The Doctor is good in this story despite a few awkward moments in the first ten minutes, but this story is one of Rose's strongest Series 2 episodes and she really is the best part of this episode. In addition, the core story isn't a bad idea. It's just clumsily executed.
