This is Doctor Who.

Forget The Day of the Doctor and other anniversary stories that are buried in continuity. This is how you celebrate a milestone.
Basically, all previous continuity is forgotten about except for that the Doctor has traveled. We don't even know which Doctor it is, which I think is extremely liberating.
The Infinity Doctors is like a mixture between The Deadly Assassin and The Three Doctors. We get a quiet beginning, showing us the beginnings of an intricate plot. At first, I didn't know what was going on, but the relevance is made clear later in the story. We're shown a Gallifreyan society that is the most interesting interpretation yet, and clearly the best. We learn about time on Gallifrey, about rank and law. It's really refreshing to be told this, and makes sense in relation to the plot.
The Doctor here is a quiet man reminiscent of the Eighth Doctor. He is vulnerable, grieving for his dead wife. He has an affair with one of his students, and then ends up killing her when he has to in order to save the universe. He is so lost as what to do when all hell breaks loose. This is by far my favourite interpretation of our favourite hero.
There's also a peace conference on Gallifrey between the Sontarans and the Rutans that is being mediated by the Doctor. While it's not really important to the plot, it gets it going and gives us some nice scenes. We learn about the war and the complexities of it.
Parts One and Two are like a political drama with terrorism being the main focus, but then Part Three takes the most daring turn and we go into the realm of fantasy, Omega's world. The scenes there are amazing, and really make you think about what the essence of Doctor Who is.
It's one of the greatest Doctor Who stories ever. 10/10. A fitting celebration of 35 years in time and space.

This is Doctor Who.
