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.

Watching this story again in 2013 I was impressed by what they did here in the first meeting (from the Doctor's perspective) with River Song. Even though I don't like River Song much, this two-part story was good fun.

Brilliant, imaginative, lyrical, sinister and the introduction of one of the most mysterious and engaging characters in the show's history. I LOVE this story. Excellent. My only gripe would be the slightly pantomime-like performance of Miss Evangelista compared to the more naturalistic Dave/ Other Dave offerings.
