This episode was one of those TV moments that made me feel like a sociopath — a screen full of characters weeping to an overwrought orchestral soundtrack while I just sat there, utterly unmoved. I find it increasingly disappointing that while Moffat’s episodes were some of the very best in previous seasons, now that he’s the showrunner I find myself practically groaning out loud when his name comes up on the credits. Of the five episodes we’ve had this season, the two that were written by Moffat were laden with speedy emotional conflict/resolution subplots and the kind of sudden U-turn revelations that remind me of M Night Shyamalan. — Doctor Who 7x05: The Angels Take Manhattan.
