|Review: Doctor Who, The Doctor's Wife

The divorce is on hold
Finally. Finally! FINALLY!
Finally, a well-written episode of Doctor Who again. Finally, a plot without major holes. Finally, characters who ... stay in character. Finally, complications and surprises that neither reek of, nor hint at, a cheat. And finally, an emotional climax that warrants the tears it asks for.
"The Doctor's Wife" is probably not, as I've already seen suggested more than once, the best stand-alone episode of the revived "Doctor Who", but it is a very good one and certainly the best episode — stand-alone or otherwise — since "The Waters of Mars" and maybe before.
I know, I know: it's shocking. As a friend of mine said elsewhere, I "actually liked an episode? ZOMG!"
