With Missy’s identity revealed and the fate of Danny’s soul still in question, Whovians were primed and ready for Steven Moffat’s final offering for Series 8. But did he deliver? With the aforementioned nemesis in full madcap form, the triumphant reappearance of Kate Stewart and U.N.I.T., and a new twist on the a Cybermen invasion all vying for the viewer’s attention, there is likely more to discuss than we can possibly cover — But honestly, has that ever stopped us from trying before?
“Death in Heaven” is the finale that the eighth series of Doctor Who both deserved and arguably delivered. Hitting us with epic showdowns both verbal and physical, and painful goodbyes both unexpected and unacceptable, we take one more deep breath, and plunge headlong into the thrilling conclusion of Capaldi’s inaugural series.
