Good, not great. As with so much of the revival series, it tried to be too profound. The "Classic series" was all about being fun; the 21st century series, while filled with fine episodes, likable companions and mostly brilliant Doctors, is just missing the carefree quality that made the show so watchable in the old days. All that said, the next Doctor looks like he has potential to be a really good one!

I'll give Capaldi a chance, but I loved Smith as the Doctor.

I want to be Ripley when I grow up.

I was disappointed.  Very.  I agree that it tried to be too profound.  It was uneven and full of plot holes.  As for Capaldi: his entrance wasn't the 'event' I had anticpated: a 'miss' as far as defining his personality.  He can look rather terrifying.  If he has the ability to be lighter, great;  if not...

I got Day of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor on my PC and I wonder if you can enjoy them without ever seeing one episode of Dr.Who before? I'm asking because I plan on watching the 2005 Dr. Who at some point, but I wonder if watching the two specials might be a good start to see if I actually like the style of the show.

Wait a minute....
if the crack in the wall thingie started out as a prison from which some beastie escaped, & then The Doctor banished the weeping angels into the big crack thingie, & now we find out it's connected to the doo-dad he used to hide Gallifrey from the deleks, then wouldn't the doctor still have wiped out the Gallifreyans by filling it full of weeping angels?

and in the episode The End Of Time, where did that version of Gallifrey come from, & where does it go to, and what connection, if any, does it have with the Gallifrey that was trapped in the painting, which is somehow connected to the crack in the sky thingie?

The crack in the wall was created by the Silence causing the TARDIS to explode and bring about the end of the known Universe back in series five. The Weeping Angels were destroyed by the crack as it is filled with time energy that wipes out most known life forms. The Time Lords are more than capable of using this both as a weapon and a means of a possible gateway.

The version of Gallifrey shown in the END OF TIME is the same as in DAY OF THE DOCTOR. The High Council with Rassilon was responsible for the plan involving the Master in END, it was the War Council that the Doctors communicated with on saving the planet during DAY. Gallifrey currently is trapped in a pocket of time outside this Universe. They used the crack in DAY to communicate with the Doctor to see if it was safe for their possible return. This was why all of those alien races, Daleks, Cybemen, Weeping Angels, etc. showed up. They wanted to attack & finish the Time Lords as soon as they came through the crack back into this Universe. This led to the events of TIME OF THE DOCTOR and was why he spent hundreds of years guarding the crack so that they would not end up destroyed.
