it's been decades and I still haven't got a clever title

I agree with you on both counts: Moffat *can* write people well, and has in fact done so in a Who context: all that girl/boy-who-waited stuff was often touching without being (or at least without striking me as) manipulative or clumsy. But I agree that this was not his finest hour and possibly his worst so far. Everything felt too rushed, too convenient, too stupid, and the divorce subplot was indeed atrocious. My willing suspension of disbelief simply never got off the ground on this episode, and by the end everything just annoyed me. I liked the actress who played the Dalek girl, and that's about the only positive thing I can find to say about this clunker.
