Yes. Both. I really hope they're not answering that question.

/Still trying to decide whether to buy or "acquire" this season
//Somebody let me know if BBCa is still running the asinine "Amy Pond Show" intros
///and if iTunes is selling the unadulterated versions
////"Acquired" most previous Smith episodes, so I think I'll pony up this time
//Each time I make a slashy, I think about Karen Gillan naked
//Soon it will be Jenna-Louise Coleman

I don't know that they'll kill Rory, because that is what is expected. I am intrigued to find out where Moffat takes the name thing, because at this point he can't just suddenly give the doctor's name, because no matter what he picks, there's no way everyone will be happy with it.

I'm thinking about both buying and acquiring. I like to pay for it or at least watch the broadcast (not an option because I'm not paying for cable to watch one show, even if it is DW) because I love it, but I have no patience whatsoever to wait for the episodes to become available.

I think I'll give BBCA one chance this season.

Of course, I'll probably regret it, but I won't biatch. I know what I'm getting into.

After that, I'm sure this thread will have given us all plenty of places to find the British versions on these fine tubes so we don't have to deal with BBCA if we don't want to.

I've got to wonder if the character from tonight is the same as the companion... Is Moffat going to have another character whose story we see end before we see it begin?

She's got a different name, so I'd think it's not the same character, especially since she didn't recognize the Doctor at all. If Clara is from the Victorian era like people have been speculating, maybe it's Clara's great, great, great, great, great grand daughter.

BronyMedic: Rules of the New Doctor Who:

The Doctor always lies. That's the thing, it's been true since the Bakers and it's true now... it's just far more obvious (to the viewer at least) that he is in fact lying.

Already watched (VPN/ iPlayer). I really liked it. Cant't really discuss it--spoilers!

The question asked by Dorium shows up again tonight.

If you are surprised by the reveal, you're thick.

And I'm forgetting something. forgetting. can't think of it.

Or we just saw the final end of the Corsairs companion... and he's off to find her closer to when she's abandoned.

Probably the best Dalek episode since "Dalek". Not that there's any real competition in there. It's interesting that disabled, limited, and barely functional Daleks are far more menacing than anything we've seen lately.

I will admit, I saw it coming, but DAMN I still love The Doctor.
 
2012-09-01 08:41:17 PM
Also, the emphasis on "Doctor who?" is going to annoy the crap out of me, isn't it? Every once in awhile, they have to do a nod to it, and that's fine. But since Dorium's announcement, they're going to hammer it until it's dead, aren't they?

If stupid poopface weinerhead Michael Grade-inspired BBC hadn't canceled the show in 1989, they were going to get into this very question in 1990.

Good point. The end of Silver Nemesis was one of the more obvious bits of setup. Plus all the odds and ends in Rememberance of the Daleks.

The reveal reminded me of Source Code. But the whole milk thing bugged me. They have replicators in the Whoverse, so why wonder where she got milk from?

It's not the issue of the Doctor's identity- it's the issue of Daleks screaming, "Doctor who?"

Ok, so I obviously wrote that mid-episode since she's not going to be doing much companioning (is that a word? it is now) in this episode. But, still Rose was basically useless except for her being the living embodiment of deus ex machina. My favorite companions are the ones who are his equals or at least keep him in his place, so I like Romana, Donna, even Amy. I just don't like the ones that fawn all over him like Rose or even Martha, even though I think Martha had lots of potential. But now I really am curios what's going to happen to bring the new girl back.

The Daleks never answered Rory's question about what color the Daleks were either, but the Doctor didn't leap to conclusions about it.

I watched The Five Doctors the other day and I was reminded of what a limp-noodle the Fifth Doctor was. Peter Davison had his moments, but for the most part he was collapsing from something or other. Hell, the first few episodes he was in, he had regeneration sickness and wasn't a very active member of the story.

Not the actor's fault. Just not great writing, I guess

I believe Davison himself said that if the writing had been as good in his first two seasons as it was in his final season, he wouldn't have left after three seasons.

...now, why they couldn't carry the good writing from Davison's final season over into Colin Baker's run, I don't know.

/Eh, Baker 2 had Vengeance on Varos, which shows the promise his Doctor had. The writers just couldn't consistently write good episodes.

"Caves of Androzani" is probably the best regeneration any Doctor had. And not because he recovered on a pair of massive pillows. It's a really great serial.

It has been dead a long time now. Yet still it gets beaten. It is the Moffatt way. It is what he does. One or two good ideas, played over and over and over as if it is the first time anyone has seen them. When people complain he cuts an episode or two off the year. Get used to it and don't talk bad about him or you will be chastised by all the little Whoover interns.

Caves was a great story, and the best Regeneration. And coming out of A Day in the Life (of a Time Lord) to Colin Baker's snarky, meta introduction had so much promise.

IIRC, the first BBCA airing is supposed to be uncut, with regular run airings getting chopped.

I'm hoping that's still true this year.

He wanted to find out what kind of "world" she lived in without asking a lot of direct questions. He might have been suspicious that she was a Dalek very early on, but didn't want to shock her since she was the only way out. After all, it would have been shocking to come right out and say, "You do know you are a Dalek, right?" It wouldn't be that far of a stretch to think that it was a Dalek right away. Who else is smart enough to hack a Dalek insane asylum but a Dalek? And what's more insane than a Dalek that plays music. She may have never been human. She only thinks she looks like Jenna-Louise Coleman
