Story arc that dragged through whole season (and continuing from previous season) resolves in most disappointing way possible. Either Moffat planned it all along thinking that it is satisfying way to end the season to cheat his audience or he just made it up as he went along and written himself in a corner. Either way, Moffat soiled the idea of story arcs by insulting his audience.

The Wedding of River Song is a spectacular and glitzy conclusion of Series 6, that's full of eye-pleasing and mind-popping visuals and concepts as the Stetson-clad Doctor is determined to find out what he had to die.

In many ways, this is a frustrating episode, because there's so much that you want to like about it. It has Pterodactyls, cars being flown through the air, a loving homage to the Brigadier, Winston Churchill as Emperor, an electrified version of chess, and some genuinely good moments from Matt Smith. Yet the story is often illogical and it concludes a series-long story arc where nothing was really accomplished or settled. It felt very much like when hints about River Song's past were given in prior episodes that Moffat wasn't actually aware of what he was going to write to validate those hints, so we end up with some really odd turns.

At the same time, it's an enjoyable spectacle but the very nature of Series 6 makes it a problematic one.

Showcases the reasons why New Series Season 6 is the one I consider the worst. It has dodgy characterisation, gimmicks, contrived endings and the elevation of the Doctor into some sort of deity figure. Disappointing.
