I liked this a lot at the time, especially the gear change halfway through, which was the reverse of Davies, who tended to ramp things up and up and up. I prefer small scale, as you know. I haven't seen this for a couple of years, though (before The Time of the Doctor, and am looking forward to revisiting the eleventh Doctor's era in toto at some point in the not too distant future to see how it holds together.

I like Steven Moffat more than most fans seem to (internet fans, anyway), but you may be right about long term plotting. I embraced the idea a few years ago, but now find myself a little bored by long term arcs. Maybe Doctor Who simply isn't suited to them? Why that might be the case is another question. Perhaps to make big arcs work you need to go down the Babylon 5 route of turning the whole thing into one great big coherent story, which Doctor Who with its early evening family audience simply can't do? Or maybe there's an inherent difficulty in telling one story over three years, especially with seasons that are so much shorter than those in US dramas?
