Now That Was Just an Awesome Ride

I am not going to spoil it for those few poor souls who have not had the opportunity to enjoy 'The Day of The Doctor'.

It is full of a lot of surprises.

It starts off by telling the story from three different points of views, which I thought was great.  Then the three storylines merge and it just gets better from there.

A lot of play on various plot lines from past episodes.  We get so many classic references, making it clear that all that has come before is still relevant.

We get Moffet's timey-wimey  play on a story big time here, but it works better than ever this time around.

We also get a great, simple explanation as to why the Doctor does not remember the meetings with his other selves and why the actions of the episode would not rewrite the Doctor's timeline.  It was a highly needed throw away line that was well past time to add.

I'll wait a day or so before I write a more solid review of the special.  Might wait until after I get to see it in the theater in 3-D on Monday.

If you've not seen it, they are rebroadcasting it this evening and it is well worth watching.  A very well done 50th anniversary special.
