A story that felt clever, coherent, emotional, fun and ticked every possible box: public-friendly, 3D friendly, cinema friendly, classic Who fan friendly, reboot fan friendly, fans of both friendly, Tennant's Zygon crush friendly... And it had Hurt being splendidly posh, Clara being warm and real, a nod to a much-missed Brigadier and soon to be respected new Doctor. And Tom Baker. And - best of the lot - Matt Smith.
