Doctor Who S8E12 review: “Death in Heaven”

Doctor Who

Well, here we are at the end of the “Doctor Who” season. In this finale we got a lot of technical and plot stuff that doesn’t survive a whole lot of logic, but the emotional and character beats are truthful and the season’s overarching themes (Doctor as commander of soldiers, “Am I a good man?”, Clara as Doctor-in-training, and the lies—oh, all the lies) are brought home strongly. How does it all fit together? Why should we never trust a hug? And what does Nick Frost have to do with it all? Let’s break it all down one final time before the fat man sings and we have to wait until Christmas to see Peter Capaldi’s eyebrows again.
