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.

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 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


He played a cow on Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, so he's got that going for him.

Would you settle for knee-jerk, white-hot nerd rage and patronizing accusations that you're a lightweight poseur who is clearly just riding the bandwagon and has probably just only watched a few BBC America episodes from the last season or two? It's a holiday, let's skip all the boring research and go right to the fun part!

Hey! Four was my Doctor, and I still have the twelve foot long scarf I got my grandmother to knit me!

You want me to rewatch 26 seasons of a TV series just to make a comment on Fark?!

Yes, no comments should be made before extensive research. Get to it!

And you are clearly not as hard-core as me, I knit my own scarf ;P Granted, I was in college and already knew how to knit...

/What the hell I'm going to do with a giant wool scarf now that I'm in Virginia, I have no idea

It gets rather cold in Virginia in the winter. And if the weather is as bad as the overly-panicky media claims it's going to be, you'll be glad you have a 14-foot long scarf.

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Also what I was thinking was that River is not entirely Time Lord DNA. If she actually can't regenerate after the last go in the Hitler episode, maybe she does eventually age normally like a human would. That said, there's the whole problem of "she's already died". Which stuck me until the SO had to go and remind me about the end of the library episode.


There is another possibility that was provided in "Let's Kill Hitler": River says she can reverse-age. She could well grow old and then reverse back. That aging and reversal would presumably, however, have had to happen before "Last Night" from the perspective of the oldest of her three selves.

I think that the broach was just a re-used prop. Look at how many times some locations are used. We don't presume that the hall where Rose and Ten met the Face of Boe and Lady Casandra to watch the Earth destroyed has any connection to the big hall in Pompeii, or the restaurant in Berlin where Mels/River gives the Doctor her remaining lives, or the Silurians' conference room, or the New Earth Senate chamber. We don't claim that the fortune-teller's tent in "Turn Left" is the Torchwood Three hub under Roald Dahl Plass either.

Jorn the Younger: Yeah, and even worse the version streaming on Netflix has it too - I went back through the series recently, and on getting series 6 all of a sudden the show thinks I've never watched before. I mean WTF?


I know, man. That really chapped my hide. I'm watching S6 with the girlfriend right now - I got her hooked with "Blink" about a year ago, then "The Girl in the Fireplace," then "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances," then "The Doctor's Wife" (she's a huge Gaiman fan), then we started in on Eccelston - and when we got to S6 on Netflix, I couldn't believe it.

foo monkey is going to think this justifies his "panties in a wad" statement, but I actually called Netflix to complain. I explained to the situation to the girl on the phone, pointed out that when watching on Netflix, nobody is going to start a TV show with Season 6, she agreed it was monumentally stupid, and said she's pass that up the line. Don't know what difference it will make, but everyone who care should do the same. Critical mass and all.

Many of you seem to like Amy Pond, or are too blinded by ZOMG REDHEAD SQUEEEEEEE to notice, but Amy has pretty much always been a stupid, thoughtless biatch.

-- "Moffat Female, Type II": There are two female character templates that Steven Moffat knows how to write: The one who follows the male lead around like a puppy and wants into his pants, like Amy Pond or Molly Hooper, and the one who is "strong and independent" and manages to outwit the male lead for a while, but is ultimately bested by the him and wants into his pants, like River Song and Irene Adler, and now apparently Oswin.

Of course you saw it coming. THAT WAS THE ENTIRE POINT.

"Man, this is so predictable. When a plot point is revealed, I can think through the implications of that before the show spoon feeds me those very same implications."

Look, if you want unpredictable, hook a word processor up to a random number generator. I guarantee that you'll never know what comes next. But plot points follow in a logical sequence. If anyone you know was surprised by the fact that all the Daleks forgot the Doctor, after a character explicitly told you that she made the Daleks forget the Doctor, you must have some kind of brain damage that prevents your memory from functioning the way it's supposed to.

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.

She downloads herself to the nanobots in the Doctor and Amy. She is then later re-created from their memories. After all, she is clever enough to pull that off. Maybe she gets a ganger, but changes her name to keep the Doctor from figuring it out. She even helps them escape right into the TARDIS.

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.

FirstNationalBastard: they were going to get into this very question in 1990.


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

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?

FirstNationalBastard: t3knomanser: 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.

Di Atribe: ODDwhun: I am enjoying that the new companion is not going to be a helpless girl from present day Earth.

Helpless? Like who?


What a helpless Who may look like:

Luthien's Tempest: Nefarious: Solid episode, the actress who is the new companion gets a nice little role

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.

Luthien's Tempest: FirstNationalBastard: 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 love that picture, in a disturbing sort of way.


Both the MLP fan and Whovian in me enjoys that photo.

...and this one.
