I have to say the finale was a poorly conceived exposition dump and a pointless retconning of the Doctor into a non-Gallifreyan with so many contradictions and holes somebody should've fired Chibbers and stopped it from being aired if there were anyone at the BBC anymore who gave a shit about quality programming rather than political agenda pushing.

Disagree - thought the finale was fine and the retconning was terrible. If this has been a RTD end of series, no one would have complained as much except about the Deus Ex killer particle. Do feel that it's trendy to bash Chibnal - he may not be the best producer but a lot of what he has done this year has been pretty good.

Only the companions did anything. The Doctor just stood around looking bloated listening to exposition dumps.

OK, just found out Cartmel plan was open to making the Doctor non-Gallifreyan and possibly from another dimension so I guess Chibbers gets a pass there even though I find that contrivance annoying.
Still caused 5x as many continuity holes as it fixed.

The Doctor did a little more than bark orders and was going through her own issues! Companions were fine although I do think that having more than three never works well and with the rumors of leaving at Christmas/New Year, I think there will be an opportunity to bring in another stronger one. There is also an chance to build on the momentum built up this season (well they are going straight into a Dalek episode next) and they need to bring back the Sea Devils (those rumors must have come from somewhere).

As to the retcon of the Doctor's life - I don't have too much of an issue and it's a chance to bring back some of the mystery.
