Doctor Who "The Sound of Drums" non-spoilery reaction (may be spoilers in comments)

I dunno, anyone else find the most recent episode of Doctor Who (The Sound of Drums) disappointing? I was good for about the first half, but the ending felt over-the-top gratuitious, piling on so many "Seen it" things one after another until they snapped the suspension wires on my disbelief. I had this vision of the writers jumping about saying, "...and, uh, ponies! EVIL ponies!" I'm left cold. Plus I just heard next week's episode is the season ender, which startles me, because it felt like the season was just beginning to hit its stride with the end of Utopia last week, as if we should have half a season left.
