Yes, 5 stars. And I'm not even going to talk about the plot.
Not only was this the best thing on TV in many, many moons, but it was also the best episode of Doctor Who since... possibly as far back as the middle of Season 4. If I've learned anything from past Doctors, it's that it takes about a season for the new actor to become the roll.
In this episode, Matt Smith is the Doctor.
This is the first episode since Moffat took over that I felt like we got to see the Doctor through many different lenses, and that adds to the dynamic and shear scope of the character. (The Amy/Rory side-plot is pivotal in establishing this effect.)
Watch this episode. Then watch it again because it's even better the second time.
Also, I feel I should add that this was the first thing I bought and watched through my new Roku. That thing is awesome.
