But the only day to deal with that - when the actor is dead - is to have a clunky bit of exposition. Also, the Doctor can't go back on his own timestream, or something.

It's not that he couldn't jump back to see his mate, it's that he was suddenly faced with the mortality he'd been avoiding up to then.

The scene where the Doctor sees Amy and Rory in the department store and some kid comes up for their autograph.

Was it just me who thought it might have meant that the Doctor had crossed over to 'reality' and what he actually observed was Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill?

(of course, the kiddy getting the autograph might actually have been completely genuine)

It was just you, yeah. You can tell it wasn't reality because there was a cyber-rat running around.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 4 October 2011 09:28 (3 years ago) Permalink

Not Actual 'reality', no. A 'performance' of it. Kiddy 'interrupting' possibly also staged, possibly not.

Mark G, Tuesday, 4 October 2011 09:34 (3 years ago) Permalink

so in your reality Gillan has devised a perfume line that is advertised with great billboards of her face?

This is a country in which every fucking no-mark who has ever been on Big Brother has done, so that's about the most plausible bit of this theory, tbh.

oh, I see what you're saying. and no, that's mental.

robocop last year was a 'shop (sic), Tuesday, 4 October 2011 12:19 (3 years ago) Permalink

although the name of the perfume is the only thing now making me think there's any timeline problem with their appearance there, and if I check The Doctor's Wife it might go away

robocop last year was a 'shop (sic), Tuesday, 4 October 2011 12:20 (3 years ago) Permalink

What was the name of the perfume?

Or is that the second question?

4 months pass...

Does anyone else feel "yeah - Dr. Who starting in autumn, that works perfectly and will be great (and also boost ratings hopefully)!" but at the same time feel "GODDAMNIT Why do I have to wait so long, this is bullshit!!"

BTW anyone else try playing that "Worlds in Time" browser-based game? Totally shit, IMO.

I hate waiting too

This is for me the least anticipated series of Who since the final Rusty one. Last one was kind of a mess, despite some great episodes. Moffat is so much better as a guest writer than show runner IMO. I do really like Matt Smith, though.

1. I'm burning season 5 for someone and trying to get it all on one 4.7GB DVD and trying to include "Blink" -- I'm not going to screw up any canonicity by leaving out the Silurian two-parter, right?

2. Just watched Hartnell's "The Daleks." Wow, do I hate Ian Chesterton. Also, strangely not bothered by the hokey lack of sophistication that bugs me with a lot of classic Who.

You'll lose Rory's departure.

The Silurian lesbian crime fighter from Victorian London in S6 will make less sense.

Ian Chesterfield will always be good. I love The Daleks/The Mutants/Serial B etc and would (and have in the past) suggest it's top 10 of all time.

Aunt Acid and the Gaviscons (aldo), Sunday, 26 February 2012 22:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, you need to tell them to watch the last 10mins of Siluria on D4ilyM0tion or something.

Wow, do I hate Ian Chesterton.

Went back in time to SB you for this.

Daleks/Mutants is monster but waayy too padded at seven eps, when you're not watching week-by-week and not knowing anything about what comes next. Let's go back and forth between the Dalek city and the Thals camp AGAIN!

Grrr, he's totally a Season 1 Will Riker, being the "charismatic" young dude who keeps upstaging the older/ranking main character. His chauvanism is also nagl, imho.

Let's go back and forth between the Dalek city and the Thals camp AGAIN!

^^ My main complaint about the lion's share of the old serials I've seen.

Hartnell / Ian / Barbara / Susan is in top ten TARDIS teams of all time.

(I don't actually super care about Ian qua Ian)

I'd say he gets his comeuppance enough so that his character isn't actually a problem on the show -- doesn't mean I have to like that character even if its OG as it gets.

Disappointed that yet again they went with pretty 20something female. I'd welcome anything else, even if it meant James Corden.

I don't think this is going to help the feminist issues Moffat has been coming up against.

Bum. Only 6 episodes this year.

After the six episodes broadcast in the Autumn/Christmas this year, the remaining eight will be shown next year, with Moffat adding: "Oh, there'll be more episodes than just those eight, but these are the ones we're making right now." No other details of when and what else will occur during the 50th Anniversary have been revealed as yet.

I'm hoping the new companion isn't from present-day Earth. Always more fun when they're aliens or from the past/future

Just realised they're probably doing the split season thing so Matt Smith can be the doctor into the 50th year, and then regenerate into #12, which would explain his contradictory "I'm just doing 1 more season" / "I want to be part of the 50th anniversary" statements
