Peter Capaldi bowed out as Jodie Whittaker stepped into the Tardis and the history books. But did Steven Moffat do himself justice with his final episode?

Merry Christmas! Despite the sense of occasion, we must offer a little critical analysis. This wasn’t really a Doctor Who adventure, since it was barely an adventure at all. This was something… perhaps less, but perhaps more. At the nub is the First Doctor (played here with unsettling skill by David Bradley, who portrayed William Hartnell’s portrayal in the 50th anniversary biopic) equally unsettled by his future as ‘the Doctor of war’, and our 12th’s horror at the unreconstructed 60s humanoid he used to be.

There is one thing I know for certain about people - and I probably learned it from Doctor Who. The younger you are, the more seriously you take yourself. The older you get, the more everything becomes a hoot, and frankly a bit ridiculous - however happy or sad the circumstance. Twice Upon a Time plays this out more than any other multi-Doctor story we’ve seen. And Moffat has a lot of fun playing the first Doctor’s political incorrectness against the 12th’s electric-guitar-and-sonic-shades midlife crisis. Bravo, frankly.

—and the Thirteenth Doctor arrives. She utters the words “Oh, brilliant ” before the TARDIS proceeds to explode and she falls out the doors.

To my mind, this episode was a perfect summation of Steven Moffat’s era as Doctor Who showrunner–the story itself was often creaky and underwhelming, but the actors were all superb and when the emotional scenes and monologues really hit, all the creaky bits just fell away. It’s hard to praise Peter Capaldi enough as the Twelfth Doctor. His gentleness and wisdom make his incarnation of the character comforting beyond words. His regeneration scene is already up there with the very best, and letting him go was always going to be a trial.

The episode is deliberately cognizant of this, and there are places where Moffat has dropped in meta dialogue to that end; Bill makes a point of telling the Doctor that the hardest part of traveling with him was “letting the Doctor go,” which he tells her is not something that the real Bill Potts would ever say. Perhaps that is true, but it’s really not about Bill—it’s about us. Letting the Doctor go is the hardest part and it doesn’t really matter how many times you’ve been through it.
