I was a bit disappointed, especially given how good the same writer's Zygon Invasion/Inversion was last year. Though this was co-written with Moffat...

The way the military leaders are completely convinced by what seems to be just a 30-second vision they get by touching something seemed really cheap and unbelievable to me. The whole thing could have been fake, no matter how real it seemed. We got a throwaway line of 'it was real, I felt it' to try to convince us, and that was it. Very lazy writing, but then I'm not sure how aliens in that position *could* convince political and military leaders, short of the disaster already being underway (and even then... global warming...), which wasn't how the writers wanted the plot to go. Which makes it lazy plotting.

And yeah, the magic shades can't read text thing was cheap too. They were doing a decent job of showing the Doctor managing to work with his impairment up until that point.

Erica was great. Nice that he offered her a job on the Tardis, but shame that wasn't followed through.
