The Only Water in the Forest is the Complete Failure to Set That Up Right.

Stephen Moffat, did you or did you not just have a character show up at the end of your "OMG so amazing!" episode to explain the plot to us because you had just failed utterly to do so?

And no, "Well, it's a children's show" does not excuse that.

I have other thoughts, but this is the one I keep coming back to.

I expect there will be charts at the start of the next episode. And an FAQ.

My entire problem with this series can be broken down to Stephen Moffat thinks he's really clever when, in fact, he is not. (Ideally a revelation like this should have you going "Oh my GOD, so many things make sense now!" Babylon 5 did that quite a lot. In this case, however, I'm going, "Okay, so many things no longer make any sense at all whatsoever even a little bit. Good job. BTW the fuck that was the lowest he's ever fallen."

! I just started watching Doctor Who, which is the tag I see, but I'm only a few eps into Series 2....

It's not necessarily a good sign that my instinctive response is, "Oh, I'm so sorry"....
