Dept. of When Cheats Aren't Cheats

The Wedding of River Song: A Recommendation

For everyone insisting the Tesselecta Resolution was a cheat, I direct your attention to this offering from the estimable scarfman.  I couldn't believe I hadn't thought of it.

I ran across it, as I usually do these things, by accident. And I grinned like a loon when I did.

Okay, that's brilliant. And a very good point.

(I never said it was a cheat, though I might've said it was cheap . . . I just think Moffat was too amused by his own deux ex machina in this particular instance.)

You just reminded me that a FB friend of mine, who's not on LJ, said the Tesselecta was less a deux ex machina than a Chekov's gun. I had to go look that up, since it's been at least 1.5 million years since I'd been in anything resembling a literature or writing class, but it seemed to fit the bill.
