ok, i guess that makes about as much sense as most things in dr who, but they could have made that abit more clear.


Wait, who was that little girl we saw regenerating in an alleyway? Are we saying that she's Jenny, or Amy's baby, or some other mysterious person?

i think she's the girl from the space suit, who's probably amelia's baby.

Dad Rory is great. Roman Rory is great. What a bamf. Although I thought him telling the Doctor to stop hugging Amy was unnecessary, Rory isn't that much of a butt, stop writing him like that

Great episode, but I still want to smack Moffat for all the two-parters and his obsession with Chekhov's Gun.

I got goosebuuuumps! I saw it coming from pretty close to the beginning of the episode and STILL got chills. Yay!

And yeah, these two-parters are getting on my nerves; I already don't like television shows because I like things to be wrapped up in nice neat little packages. At least this one didn't end with SO much of a cliffhanger like the others have, but still... hiatus sucks.

Squawk - I think it was a little more tongue-in-cheek than anything, since the doctor teased about asking permission first. Maybe a little bit of honesty thrown in too, but I think at this point Rory realizes there's nothing there.

Yeah I'm not too impressed by the break until the autumn, not least because in the autumn I won't have a TV! ARGH!

I can't believe I didn't realise about Amy's baby as soon as we found out her name. I'd remarked on the watery link between the two women ages ago, and it just didn't click! My mind is rather tangled trying to work out how exactly it can be true - and also I am in awe at how far in advance this must have been planned.

Totally called it that the Silence were coming back. I was so disappointed with them in the first two episodes because I felt like there was just this huge crescendo of expectations that they were going to make shit hit the fan and then, yeah.

So, to hold people over before the season resumes on the 27th, the BBC is doing interviews with celebrities on what their favorite Matt Smith episodes/characters/villains/monsters are. And it's being done over the next three weekends (including tonight).

*sigh* This should have been a DVD extra, not a TV special. Just do reruns of season 6. That'll help people catch up, not interviews with random people.

The thing that sucks about those is that it's all just the last season. Asking people their scariest Who-niverse creature?

While I may not be up to date on the classic foes/creatures, I will say that out of the new seasons, the Weeping Angels are bowels-breaking terrifying. The concept of them alone is just a nightmare. Then Moffat ratcheted-up the nightmare fuel in season 5 with the two-parter featuring them.

It occurs to me that it might have been a clever way of getting around the fact that the doctor only has two regenerations left over. Perhaps now he has an extra nine.

Well, "Night Terrors" was a nice little breather episode. Sure, it felt a little weak here and there, but it definitely made up for that in sheer nightmare fuel.

Still waiting on "The God Complex" (i.e., the minotaur episode), which is a little later in the season I think. From the preview of that episode I saw, it looks like it'll be a very interesting ride.

Yes. Go back to the start of the revival in 2005 and work your way up to the current season. You'll be better off. Although, avoid "Love and Monsters" like a disease-ridden mutant freakshow. No exceptions.

------------------------------------------------
Moving on, "The Girl Who Waited" was a nice episode. I liked how we get some serious development on Rory and Amy's relationship and how a slight gag from the beginning of Matt Smith's run (his Doctor never being on time) comes back to bite him in the ass. Props to Karen Gillian for her acting skills in this one.

Next week is "The God Complex". I await with excitement.

well, the 'twist' was telegraphed a mile off, but yeah, that was pretty great. Especially right at the end, although tying it to 'the fall of eleven' or whatever it was means that they're setting up plot points that won't come to fruition until Smith decides to do something else.

well that's kind of as it should be. foreshadowing big events like that needs to be done far in advance to build up anticipation.

the one thing i'm abit disappointed in with this season is that with everything else, they don't seem to have made any movement on the big question from the end of the last one: why did the tardis explode?

and could rory get anymore badass?

I got quite muddled but I was happy just to let it carry on and see what happened. Am I right in thinking that this series finale was the one written by a group of school children? If so, great job children! I enjoyed that much more than some of the "proper" writers' episodes.

I was not expecting the plot twist, actually, but that's probably because I don't think about it but just let it happen. I'd genuinely started to believe that the Doctor was going to die and wondering what on earth they were going to do with Matt Smith for the remaining year he's contracted for!

Remind me - who are the Eleven? Ought I know this?

It's not that it won't happen for a while which would be fine, it's that it won't happen until things not at all related to the story come to pass which means that the writers will be forced to spin wheels for a while. So while I'm sure I'll enjoy the stuff the team comes up with as they haven't failed me yet, I'll never be able to shake the feeling that on some level it's all filler plot.

and probably, lets be honest. He hasn't stopped yet.

We felt a little let-down by this finale, honestly. We both caught the twist as it happened and I think that didn't help. I guess we were hoping for a little more scary or suspenseful from Steven Moffat.

However, Rory is as badass as they come. *swoons*

I was kinda underwhelmed by the finale actually. It just seemed so 'meh, just another day of Doctor Who'. There's just been too many 'shocking' twists thrown in this season that nothing really surprised me at the end.

(I don't know why but I was really annoyed with the visual difference between the scenes they had filmed in Utah for 'The Impossible Astronaut' with the ones in the finale. It was a really minor thing but that really distracted me...)
