wow, way to miss the point guys.


The Dalek sent the doctor to enable them to KILL HER.
And now they don't know who he is but she did. Where do you think that idea came from.

How did they know how to get in touch with him.
Why did they go to use the Doctor instead of just inverting a rift on the planet or something.
How did she know to run?
Why did it take so long to convert her and why did they have to do it manually?

Episode 1 is the set-up for the series. Episode 1 is a set-up.

have a nice day and be sure to slap the idiots who have me on ignore.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: TheManofPA: rickycal78: sirbissel: One thing I didn't quite get-- the Doctor heard whats-her-face's voice. But if she was a Dalek, then wouldn't the voice have been all in her mind and the Doctor would have heard a Dalek's voice?

Not necessarily. Remember the transmission the normal Daleks were hearing, the song? I'm going to rationalize the whole thing as the human voice being a radio transmission, then when he met her he heard her real voice. Still doesn't entirely work, I know since the Daleks usually have their robo voice in radio transmission, but it's the only thing I can think of.

I'll have to rewatch, but don't you hear the Dalek and Doctor's conversation from inside the white room (not just inside the Dalek's head). I can't honestly remember what the voice sounds like in those scenes.

It's her voice when she hears herself, Dalek when the doctor talks to her. IIRC, debating watching it again.

Anyway, considering she was over a speaker the whole time, I'd go with voice being manipulated.

Although goddamn, on a side note, my simple Google search to figure out when the premiere was going to be ended up telling me that Rory and Amy leave (and when). Obviously it was gonna happen, and I don't know how, but goddammit that was annoying.

/why I didn't know the premiere was tonight

Oh yeah....I guess she was flirting with everyone through the speakers in her regular voice. Had it been a Dalek voice, the Doctor would have been like....uh why is a Dalek flirting with me over the loudspeaker

Everyone's first Doctor is their favorite.

ghost_who_walks: Well, ABC (Australia, that is) did the amazing thing and put it up on their web viewer before it shows on TV - That is, Australians can legitimately stream it online a full week before it shows on TV. Now that's how it's done.

On to the ep: Liked it, a lot, but I must admit to being so used to the big-overarching-plot type stories that I think I was waiting for more from it... but no, that's just me, and no fault of this ep. Had me going "wtf?"-quisical-dog at a few points until things were explained and I went "Ahhh! I see now!"

Are we hiding spoilers? Some things have kinda been said already and I don't want to ruin it for anyone just checking in on this thread...

Spoilers in white:
- So yeah, since that was the new companion there, does this mean we know how she dies before we meet her properly?
- How could Amy ever give up Rory? She's crazy. He's managed to get even more handsome, and he would never stop loving her, he waited for her for two thousand years and he looks at her with those puppydog eyes and gawd I'm gushing over a fictional character shoot me now.
- I'm glad we get to see why the Daleks are so feared and how they aren't just pepper pots on wheels... they do have tech and spies and stuff.
- And yeah, the Doctor has been wiped from their memory... and he made them what they are...
- This is more on the theme that was set last season though: The Doctor has got too "large", too well known. I suspect we're going to be seeing more of him doing things to reduce his impact on the universe.
- Why didn't the nanobots affect the doctor? Or did they...?


Anyway, so very glad the Doctor is back

That's fair, but I saw the many, many bits and pieces of 9 and 10 via the SO (and less of at least half a dozen other doctors) before I got to 11.

Did kinda suck that I knew the River Song reveal before I even started watching everything in proper order.

I'll probably go back and watch 10 and other episodes here and there if they're referenced in current episodes, but man, I gotta draw a line in the sand. Way. too. many. hours of this.

At around seven minutes in, when Daleks are banging on her door, what are they saying? It sounds to me like "You will express Hitler. We wear chaw." but for some reason I doubt that's the genuine dialogue.

That's a decent start, thanks! I've seen Blink (yeah, the weeping angels kind of kick ass).

BTW, Joe Jackson + Shatner = Common People is one of my favorite songs ever for some reason. Somehow managed to make a song I already loved even more awesome. Much respect.

It's because a lot of the new Doctor Who fans started with Tennant, and RTD, so they are super fan boy about them. They don't grasp the concept truly that the Doctor regenerates and he usually turns into something completely different than the one before. They don't like change, and they go hipster like I liked Tennant and Doctor Who before it became popular (American wise). Smith made Doctor Who more popular, and I think its because he has more range than Tannant, and that's not a diss to Tenannt. It's a diss to RTD making the 10th Doctor more emo. I personally love the 9th, and 11th Doctor, but I have a soft spot for the 2nd Doctor as well. I sort of watched it as a kid, but didn't give two shiats about it, but I did start watching it on and off right when Tennant took over. So I don't really like to diss on which Doctor is better, but I do hold some hatred for RTD, on making the last four specials for the 10th Doctor kind of lame, imo.

Also don't argue with them on it, because they will go apeshiat on you. They love RTD, and hate Moffat, because of his story arch, and he brought them Smith. Also they kind of ignore original run of Doctor Who, but they still watch it to make fun of it. They also like to cosplay old Doctor incarnations to show how into the show they are. I've learned this from experience, while going bar hopping with a few of them.

Obviously, the two young women are connected in some way -- sisters, clones, mother & daughter (Oswin did make reference to her mother and it being the latter's birthday recording her notes); the same actress would not have been cast this season for a guest spot unless it was intentional. It's not like a guest actor who later gets hired to be a companion or Doctor, nor is it as if she was disguised under alien prosthetic makeup.

I initially didn't recognise the different name, so when Oswin died I initially got angry about Moffat making yet another companion be out of sync with the Doctor, like the majority of multi-episode companions since Mel Bush (seriously, most have met the Doctor before he met them and vice versa -- even if you count Wilf and Craig as multi-episode companions, they're still outnumbered by the out-of-sync ones).

And the religious types were offended by Ten's messianic appearance in "Voyage of the Dammed". Now Eleven is depicted riding a dinosaur like Jebus. They are going to be maaaaad.

Well, we don't actually know yet whether Clara and Oswin are two different people. I hope they are, it's going to be a bit much if everything is out of sync again, but the emphasis on "remember me" is a bit suspect.

enforcerpsu: diaphoresis: Boring episode. Predictable from 17 mins in.

/I still dislike Matt Smith

Always one in the group. Still watching doctor who, still stuck on David tenant, still complaining on the internet.


Blah. Not stuck on Tennant, but Smith is MLP. It's always been, in its own way, a kids' show, but since Smith it's been this x10. Blech. Episode was sub-par, although I do like the 'trying to make Daleks menacing again'.

Aside: Either Amy or Rory dies this season, and either way Rory dies this season (they can't really kill off that slag Amy and leave poor Rory alive alone...).

I've watched the show since I was a kid. Tom Baker was my first Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith was my first companion. I eventually got to see the series from the beginning, but I still have a special place in my heart for those two. Made me very sad when Elizabeth Sladen passed away, followed by Nicholas Courtney (Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart) and Mary Tamm (the first Romana). I guess I just don't like seeing more pieces of my childhood falling away.

I like the current run of the show, too. With a few exceptions, I've liked all the new episodes.

Just got done downloading and burning the new episode, and will watch it with my wife tomorrow.

This ends my rambling

Watched this twice tonight and really enjoyed it.

loved the long shot of all the Parliament Daleks headlights going on and off as they were chanting.

They've managed to make the Daleks scary again.

Got the big twist near the end about a few seconds before the reveal, and it was a heart-breaker. The conversion flashbacks were pretty horrific - reminded me a lot of "Revelation of the Daleks" where the partially-converted mutant in the glass Dalek was ranting one moment and pleading with his daughter to kill him the next moment.

So far so good for series 7.

o, we went through this before... the usual depiction of Doctor Whooves is the Tenth Doctor. Derpy is obviously Rose (or is it that Rose was obviously Derpy? Eh, it works either way).

So, I haven't seen this in the thread, but I may have missed it, but am I the only one who kinda feels like Amy and Rory...well...they're done. Like, it was o.k. seeing them, being in the story and all, but it felt like they were past their expiration date. By a lot, really. Last season really tied their entire story up in a very tidy, very well done bow. Now they feel...unnecessary? Or maybe more like baggage that's just there.

Could just be me, it just seems like the stories they were meant for are now done, and they are no longer the right people to be in these new stories. And yes, I know they are leaving, it's just that I think the end of last season should have been the send off.

The new girl was good, of course, but she did feel a bit like an Ace clone. NTTAWWT.

Martha Jones. Seriously, they have very similar personalities, or as similar as a pony and a fictional Doctor Who companion can have.

Yeah that is true, but it's mostly because fanboys see Doctor Whooves as the 10th Doctor, because that is the first male pony that looks like one of the Doctors. There has been hints to others, but people just love Tennant more.
