This shows in the film because it fits very naturally into the last few seasons in that it is entertaining, doesn't always hang together, has the odd "intense" character moment to make the viewer think it might do more, has lots of timey-wimey stuff and occasionally just relies on the BBC orchestra bashing out dramatic music to make the viewer think it is more exciting and engaging than it actually is.
This isn't to say that it is bad, but just that while it has the strengths of the recent shows, it also has the weaknesses as well. As such we have some comic stuff that doesn't work, a whole plot line involving the Queen which really doesn't seem to fit particularly well into the other thread and, as a result, just appears to be dropped when it suits.

Coleman is her usual flirty self — she has a nice twinkle and she suits the tone of most of the show now, but there is not too much beyond this. I have no idea why they wanted to bring Piper back — she did not need to be the character she played and her performance is a bit too stilted and awkward — I could have lived without her.
