Worst story of all doctor who. Never see something such horrible. There's no plot. It's only battle and battle and rescue and rescue. There's only the final revelation who give to the story a little interest.
The rest is purely nothing. THIS-IS-A-BAD-EPISODE there's nothing to see here. Even the ennemy is bad, madam Kovarian, she's really pmpous and ridiculous. The headless monk are useless for the story and, god, why did the Doctor bring Dorium on the Demon Run ? Why ? He didn't fight, he do nothing during the whole episode ! Dorium is useless.
The introduction of the paternoster gang is... Very, very quick. Why did Moffat bring us allies like them ? At the time we didn't even know who they were ! Why not the sisterhood of Karn or the Torchwood team ? That could be make more sense.
But Moffat haven't think of all the characters he was capable to bring back; Ace,Jo,K9... No, he give us anonymous characters.
Well, what are the Silurian doing here ? Aren't they supposed to be the ennemy ? Ho ! Ho ! I remember ! It's Moffat, he's capable to do great plot and great idea but he's also capable to create thing that don't make any sense.
Dorium, we need to talk more about him. Who is he ? He's like the paternoster, why didn't Moffat show him in an other episode of the season ! Why ? WHY ?!

The place now, what is Demon run ? A place we've never seen before. A place that was show earlier in the season will be interesting but, no, why don't we show a stupid asteroid in the middle of space ? And all these place we've never seen like the Maldovarium !

The title is so useless to think about what happen in the story. Why did he put this title ?

To conclude, this is the worst dr who episode I've ever see.

The Series 6 mid-season finale brings us the Doctor's attempts to rescue Amy and Melody from Demon's Run and we finally learn the true identity of River Song. It's an episode that mixes in some great spectacle and atmosphere, with some more questionable elements. Matt Smith, Alex Kingston, and Karen Gillian are all superb. We also get the introduction of Strax, who is brilliant in this story.

At the same time, the story suffers from some poor editing choices as well as the attempt to overpack the episode with too many guest characters and elements, with many being surplus to requirements. It's also a story that's rife with dubious and illogical elements. It's most enjoyable if watched without a whole lot of analysis.
