Palate Cleanser: The Curse of Fatal Death

After some fairly heavy posts, how about some gratuitous Who-age?

I think it's time for Stephen Moffat's premiere episode:

and Part 2:

You can see in comic form quite a few of the traits that have defined Moffat's time to date as show-runner--the Doctor as fairy-tale/mythic figure, the delight in time paradoxes, and the pull toward domesticity, to name a few. Not to mention the Doctor having to rescue the Daleks, his oldest foes.

For an insightful look at Curse of Fatal Death (the title of the story), the always interesting Tardis Edruditorum is well worth a visit.
