Doctor Who Recap: Season 6, Episode 8, “Let’s Kill Hitler”

After leaving the audience hanging for several months after the revelations at the end of “A Good Man Goes to War”, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is back with a bang, kicking off the second half of the season with an episode packed with his trademark witty dialogue, dazzling perspective shifts, and a surprising number of answers about the mysterious River Song. The deliberately provocative title might suggest a light-hearted romp, in the tradition of most of the show’s previous season openers—and the episode does start out that way, but ends up leading to a critical turning point in the lives of the Doctor and his friends.
