Scattershot, but enjoyable. Jumping around from character to character to character, giving us a scene or two with each, slowing adding more pieces to puzzle of this large-scale, rambling and enjoyable story. 8/10

  -Heh. I just can't take The Collector seriously. I always think of Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons collecting Lucy Lawless...

  There is intricate, and there is confusing. This is the latter.

  This is all over the place, I think there are like 5 or 6 subplots going on.

  This story is really building with the subplots and all. This has to be the most epic story arc yet.

  I understand how this could be confusing, but I am following and enjoying every minute of it.

  So the Collector has a TARDIS. I guess that actually makes sense.
