Doctor Who

It's like the old BCS, except the 2.0 makes it fancy. Wondering why you can't post here? Check out the rules and expectations, and it all should be made clear...

I liked last night's episode. Though I'd guessed
Spoiler: show
the doctors had switched shoes
. Though I didn't see it coming at all that
Spoiler: show
Amy was a 'ganger
. Looking forward to next week's episode.

The headless monks were quite eerie... Not sure how I felt about the rest of the episode. It seems like an awful lot of set up that never went anywhere, even for a to be continued episode... River Song's reveal wasn't all that shocking, especially after
Spoiler: show
Amy named the baby Melody Pond, it was so close to River Song

So I'm getting caught up with the new episodes of Doctor Who right now, and int he episode "Night Terror", I have a question"

Spoiler: show
On the table next to George's bed, theres a crane that looks like its made of LEGOs, but I cant place the set it would come from or if it's even LEGO. Has anyone else that's seen this episode noticed this, or spotted any other LEGOs on the bookshelf?

Hm, what are your guys' thoughts on the season overall now that it's over?

Personally, I thought it was a rather mixed bag. You had your great episodes (Doctor's Wife, Girl Who Waited, God Complex) mixed with some decent at best episodes (Night Terrors and Wedding of River Song) and then some truly awful episodes (Good Man Goes to War, Let's Kill Hitler, Closing Time). I don't think the idea of an arc-intensive season really worked (especially when half the episodes aren't really related to the arc), and then much of the supposed mystery and secrecy unraveled itself far earlier than it really should have.

There were some really good bits sprinkled throughout, but overall I think it was just a big bunch of "meh". But hey, Matt Smith was consistently excellent, which at least makes this better than the double-whammy of Series 2 and 3. Still not nearly as good as 1 or 5, though, not by a long shot.

I thought that
Spoiler: show
River Song only killed the robot doppleganger thing and not the Doctor
was pretty obvious. I'm curious how the next season will run now:
Spoiler: show
with the Doctor stepping into the shadows
. And I'm really not sure about the question being
Spoiler: show
Doctor, who?
It has potential, but I'm not sold on it yet.

The question
Spoiler: show
Doctor Who? being the question that brings silence to the universe was explained by Dorium Maldovar. On the fields of Trenzelor, at the fall of the Eleventh, a question will be asked - one that must never be answered. And Silence must fall when the question is asked. And the silence will fall because the Doctor will never reveal his name.

I think that's an attempt to bring it back to the Classic Series way of doing things, where the Doctor is a relative unknown just passing through the universe doing what he pleases. After about 5 years of "The Doctor is the greatest thing to ever happen to this planet and this universe in the history of everything", where he was so feared and legendary and etc., I believe this is a welcome change.

Anybody watch the Muppets... er Angels take Manhatten last night?

I thought a nice little twist at the end should have been:

Spoiler: show
On Amy and Rory's tombstone, something to the effect of beloved parents to Brian Pond Williams. Could open up a new mystery for a new season or just be a mysterious thing that never got explored.

Was absolutely heart broken. I knew they were leaving, but that just hurt. Moffat is a bad person.

Really fantastic episode..... I think, but not one I'll be rushing to watch again. Oh, and the smiling angel? Gorram that was creepy!

So... 50th Anniversary...

:shock: Mind... Blown...

Spoiler: show
Yeah, I'm still processing all of that. But my god, that whole end, with Baker as the Curator. I was goosebumpy.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

Was that not so incredibly awesome?! I don't think I've been so overwhelmingly euphoric/stunned/just completely in awe over a TV show in a very long time... the way everything fitted in, and finally we saw the Great Time War! Moffat is a brilliant executor of long-term plans in this show, and somehow I manage not to see them coming.

Baker was definitely the icing on the cake... :cool: I started watching the old series in reruns on TV around 2000 as a kid, and I would have to say he was my favourite at the time.
