Worst story of Doctor who ever. Useless, empty with forgetable characters. The whole series 6 is bad because of a bad story arc and because of writers who didn't even think of creating good characters.

The whole episode plot is 'battle, battle, fight, shoot' only this. The purpose is to rescue Amy and it's finally a victory after 35 minutes of battle. There's only a sort of plot twist at the end with Rivers' revelation and the baby who's kidnapped. The others parts of the story are empty.

The Doctor is only here to say 'look I'm so powerfull, I've many allies'. His characterizayion is bad. I didn't like Matt Smith because his voice is so slow and so monotonous. He is boring.

Amy is only here for the Doctor to have a reason to come. She only talk to a baby and do nothing very memorable. Rory is only here for the battle and River only appear at the end to say something everybody had guessed since a long time.

The crowd of old ennemies/ally are useless. Moffat introduce the Paternoster quickly and create Dorium Maldovar for nothing because this guy don't do anything in the story. Why there's Silurians and Sontarans with the Doctor ? Why Judoons ? Why flesh peoples ? And why did Moffat did this story ?

I wanted to give it a 0 but I can't. Even a 1 is to much for this mess.

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.
