I liked it. I haven't liked much of Moffat's since he took over the series; but I liked this, not because the Ponds (and I'll get to this in a moment) left, but because this story had a beginning, middle, and end and wasn't so X-Files-ish. It also used the Weeping Angels as the true menace they are, the "killing me softly" kind of baddie. I loved that.
Now, the Ponds. Sigh. I was never a fan of them, in particular Amy. I'm going to get flack for this, but I hated that they were called the Ponds. Rory Williams was the better of the two characters and while I get what Moffat was doing there, I hated it just the same. It diminished Rory as a character. Without getting into it, I loved the ending and how Rory finally got the respect I felt he deserved.
And while I liked this episode, I feel it was too little, too late to make the companions interesting.
I didn't realize it until someone else pointed it out - the Christmas special, a Victorian setting, again?
Moffat needs to move on and focus on other projects. I'm done with him. I'll still watch as the show has its moments. I loved "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" and "A Town Called Mercy" tugged on my Western heartstings. (My dad would have watched that episode.) But his run as producer has been so lackluster as he tries to be more clever than actually telling a story. He did that last night though. Again, too little, too late.
