Why is it so well loved?
1. Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill and Alex Kingston all give some of their finest performances on the show.
2. It discusses grand ideas, like the importance of legends and the power of ideas.
3. It is one of the most intricate season finales, pulling together subtle hints and plot points you didn't even see the first time around.
This is the best loved story starring the 11th Doctor, the least loved is The Coming of the Terraphiles.
