The Doctor's new companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman, surprised millions of fans with an early appearance

The first episode of Series 7 pulled in 6.4 million viewers to British TV screens, and crashed the Australian website streaming it with a record demand.

Despite the global interest in the sci-fi phenomenon, chief writer Steven Moffat managed to keep some surprises under his hat that shocked and delighted the millions of fans waiting eagerly to jump on the new stories.

He made the Daleks human, he introduced the new companion - 'Oswin' as she was called in this episode - ages before anyone was expecting her, and he even made Amy and Rory Pond split up for a bit. All in all, he set the bar pretty high for the rest of the series.
