If the structure of this season is as ambitious as it appears -- and given that whole list of shit happening above, it seems likely that there will be so many balls in the air that there won't actually be time to stop and think about any of it -- that's interesting enough that the nonstop storytelling failures won't really matter so much as they did last year. (Quick! Tell me what happened last year!) Stick with the Cool Shit, don't ask questions, Keep Calm, and enjoy the Doctor in his various outfits and states of undress? Doable. I think it's going to be okay.
