The Prequel to “The Bells of Saint John”

Steven Moffat has done it again: He’s gone and created a wonderful prequel, this one for the second half of season seven — specifically the first story back, “The Bells of Saint John.” This piece has many things going for it: It’s short; it’s charming; and it provides another hint about the nature of Jenna-Louise Coleman’s Clara.

I love Matt Smith’s performance in this — all melancholy about “losing” Clara so soon after really losing Amy and Rory. And there’s just something about the way his 11th Doctor sparks with children; it’s a wonderful connection for a Doctor to have.

Don’t miss “The Bells of Saint John” this Saturday at  8 p.m. on BBC America.
