At least it felt Christmas-y and like something was actually going to happen THIS EPISODE. Usually the problem is that Davies sets up so much in the first part that the second part is wall-to-wall deus ex machina, but here it starts with deus and Timothy Dalton head and there wasn't really any story or much Christmas in it. The whole episode I kept thinking "Couldn't this have all been shown as the pre-credit teaser, so we can start when the Doctor DOES SOMETHING?"
