Warning…plenty of huge spoilers for this week’s episode.
The Witch’s Familiar did the impossible, building on the dramatic events of last week to create an episode that was even stronger than The Magician’s Apprentice.

Steven Moffat also left us some tantalizing clues about the Doctor’s past, adding more mystery to a 52-year old character (in TV terms) without radically changing the mythology to anger established fans.
