    I couldn't care less how bad the episode is, I'm glad we're switching to new companions.
    For the record, I haven't watched it yet. Only internet service available to me until thursday blocks torrents.

    just stream it then, pm me if u need a link

    also, Captain Jack needs to be in the anniversary.

    sometimes it felt like they didnt know how to gauge fan reactions to rory. they wrote him as a badass sometimes and then others he's pretty much shaggy from scooby doo. then sometimes they do both. i know who fandom like different aspects of him...amy felt like the same character all the way through....not much of an evolution honestly. but rory kinda bounced around.


    Amy in this season felt....overdone. The character seemed to mouth off a lot more as well as spouted too many old lines that were once endearing but now annoying. "raggeity man".

    Also in previous season's she was always cute, but had a more natural beauty to her. For this one its like she just walked out of a damn salon in every scene she is in! Looking all Miss Maybelline perfect + 2lbs of make-up.

    Such an awful way to write out a character and made no sense at all. Also, what's with the titles getting darker and changing font?

    Something i forgot about earlier, but another example of crap writing is Amy's now sterile after the Demon's run incident(the excuse for why they suddenly got divorced, garbage writing in itself). So after getting stranded in the past they both lived to their 80's without any more children.

    To make matters worse, since they weren't brought up to speed on the whole inane fixed point bullcrap regarding their situation, they probably waited for YEARS hoping the Doctor would find a way to come back for them but never did.

    Wow both of them really got screwed over in the end. But hey, at least we got to see 5 seconds of an angel SOL in one scene. Nice job writers!

    Wait wut? "wildn"?

    Sorry i get kinda outspoken as times when it comes to a subject i feel strongly about. While i watched the show on & off in the Eccelston/Tennent years, i didn't become a full-blown fan till the amazing Smith run. And i didn't appreciate seeing memorable companions from that era get so messed over like that.

    when i said "rushed" i didn't mean it like they didn't spend enough time working on the story, i meant the editing technique. like it was shot in away that creates tension, even when there wasn't any (or so i think. it's probably some crazy awesome shit i am missing).

    @io i noticed the different intro too. anybody know what's up with that?

    ^^ OMG! That is so fucking depressing! This is what the idiotic decisions by the writers have wrought :mad:

    Again i say, such a heavy handed way of exiting two endearing companions from the show by way of completely SCREWING THEM OVER, will be looked at as a black eye on the series one day.

    WTF....

    Honest, that scene while sad would have still been better then the big nothing we wound up getting since it provides at least some resolution. I hope they are just saving the best stuff for the second half of the series/season because this is really looking like a change in creative direction maybe necessary sooner rather then later.

    Tom Baker's actually been confirmed for the 50th anniversary. Oddly enough, it's Eccleston and Tennant which haven't.

    not really a spoiler. Tardis usually changes every year or so.

    Most returning cast members will be keeping it on the down low. I'm shocked Baker was even able to confirm. I've read a lot of John Simm rumours too. I am willing to bet virtually any amount of money that Tennant will show up, with his father in law.

    I have doubts about Eccleston, he did not get along well with the BBC folks. That's why he quit after one season.

    So........... what, is this second half of the season going to be the Doctor finding an Oswin, and her dying before the end of the episode?

    That was a great episode and easily the best of the xmas specials

  • ZebsterZebster Joined: Posts: 3,738
    No, what I mean is... well obviously the first Oswin we see isn't one that knows the Doctor, because she doesn't recognize him. So basically the one he's going to find isn't the one that became a Dalek... so this leads me to believe that he's going to find a lot of Oswins during his travels, and the reason is because they are going to die every time he finds one, but he keeps looking for them because he wants to understand why she seemingly keeps existing in different times.

    If that is so, then I think it's going to end up with the season going full circle, and the reason there are more Oswins are because of the recurring idea in the Christmas special, remembering. She said "and remember" both times before she died, and the snow-like creature was able to do what it did because it was able to remember how to do so... so she may have been created multiple times throughout time because someone remembered her, possibly the Intelligence... for some reason that isn't entirely clear.

    Honestly the best Christmas special of the modern series, even better then Christmas Invasion.
    Technically, I don't get why they are saying she died twice, she died three times first when the Dalek's killed her and converted her into a Dalek, the second when Dalek Oswin sacrificed herself to help the Doctor escape and third this Christmas special.

    Also, I am thinking one of two things keeps leading to Oswin's seemingly temporal immortality. One the Doctor's exposure to the nanites in the air that was converting people into Dalek's. Maybe she reprogrammed it so that whenever he spends time there she overwrites some woman's uterus and she gets reborn again. Two, something about Oswin's mind is so strong that she is able to not just resist Dalek assimilation but project her mind across time itself to be reborn, like a more difficult version of the standard Time Lord regeneration.

    Either way, if the rest of the remaining episodes are as fun as this one was, it will be a great ride.

    Honest, while the Oswin chick is incredibly attractive, smart and brilliant chemistry with Matt Smith, mid way through the episode, I was sort of hoping they'd bring Strax along, I think he'd make a dope part-time companion for a few episodes. Never mind (I think) being the first non human male companion for more then a episode of the modern series.

    Strax was epic. Moping Time Lord was epic. Flirty ass companion was epic. 1 word answers were epic. Episode was epic.

    I too am confused as to how they will handle the mass amounts of Clara's throughout the season. She was all over the Doctor, he looked smitten.

    How long do we wait for more episodes??

    So the Intelligence from the Christmas special is the same Great Intelligence from past Doctor Who shows, which is why he thought it sounded familiar. Apparently that whole thing with him showing the Intelligence that London underground map actually factored into an episode with the Second Doctor. Now that's definitely something for fans of the early show, and it completely went over my head. How many people in this thread already knew this?
