The boys are back on PBS: I confess to already seeing it. I knew someone who downloaded the episodes for me. It is not unique to me.

It’s like you know what you’re doing to me and every other fan out there, and I can just picture some of you (ehm ehm Moffat) sitting in a dark room somewhere wringing your hands while you laugh evilly about what you’ll do to us next.
