    Loved it! I thought River was an amazing character throughout the Matt Smith era, and having her back was amazing for me. Everything comes to an end eventually, and this episode showed that well. Must Watch!

    Loved Capaldi! however his companion just had to keep bringing up her sexuality didn't she?
