The episode as a whole left me empty. It started off great! Then right after he figured things out and knew what needed to be done, things ground to a halt.
The parts that focused on Clara being mopey were long and drawn out (as I suspected they were supposed to be) and the time focused on The Doctor was done with about as much care and attention of the hated flashback clip episodes of various series. By the time things started getting good, it was over.
That and the Regeneration sequence was drawn out for far too long.
It left everything wrapped up nicely, but I wish the wrapping paper was more colourful.
I hear nothing but bad reviews for the Xmas special. I don't have cable and haven't been able to watch it. Can anyone recommend a good spot to watch it so i can form my own opinion. Or in fact watch lots of episodes come to think of it. I've been waaaaay out of the loop on my Dr. Who watching for the past year. Need to catch up before i watch the Xmas special.

There has been the first screening of the first Capaldi episode for a limited amount of fans in a London (as always) cinema this week. The reaction to the episode and Capaldi himself as the Doctor has been overwhelmingly positive.
Interestingly enough over here on the UK they're making the first episode of this series available to watch at the cinema, similar to what they did with the 50th anniversary which was completely awesome. I got to heckle Davros.
Anyway here's a spoiler free review of the episode:
It's getting shown in cinemas around the world. Earliest screening in Australia is 10am, which will be about 6 hours after it airs in the UK. It's also getting simulcast in Australia so no need to download, no need to go to a cinema, no need to wait until 7:30pm ... just have to get up really early in the moring like I did with the 50th anniversary.
I may have watched a leaked work print of the premier a few days before it airs...all I'll tell you is that I love Capaldi, the first episode features the surprising return of an old enemy, Vashtra and Jenny are back (and still need a spin off show), and I can't wait to see it actually finished.
