The writing for this series has been poor. Like last week's episode (Town called Mercy), this week's offering seemed to rely more on Smith's seemingly intentional parodying of the role as the sole source of entertainment rather than the script itself. The closure to this week's edition was particularly bad and it almost seemed as if the writing team couldn't be bothered to come up with an interesting ending.
In terms of Matt Smith, you do get the impression that he has grown bored with the role and I wouldn't be surprised if the next series was his last.
