they shall not grow old

So I'm not the only person who was in floods of tears by the end of tonight's Doctor Who, then? Good.

John Smith's vision of the future, including a perfect death, which was what really set me off blubbing! His realisation that his entire life wasn't real, and that it was all going to end! The braveness of the crying schoolboy soldiers, hideous foreshadowing of the subsequent years! The memorial service at the end! Oh, it was all too much for me. Also, when I was a kid, the ultimate fates of the Family would have given me sleepless nights for weeks, if not months. The kid-in-the-mirror was a particularly evil touch - that would have totally got me back then (and may have actually done so now even though I am now, of course, grown up and sensible). Anyway, the whole thing was totally and utterly amazing. Probably the best episodes of the revival so far.
