- The Doctor's companions panic, because they are trapped in a magic box with a daft and capricious god.

That sums up basically the entire run of Dr. Who, actually. He's been a ragingly self-serving sociopathic douchebag since he was a white-haired old dude dragging his granddaughter and her grade-school teachers back to harass cave-men trying to make fire. That kind of what makes the series unique, the alien character is written as an actual alien. He doesn't care about non-galifreyan life to the point that he frequently does the equivalent of letting Hitler kill all the Jews so that his tea doesn't get cold, and he defends his companions only because he gets a kick out or rescuing and being arbitrarily jealous over them gives him a chance to swing his cosmic dick about and kill various species more often.

Note that the character is rarely if ever described as the "hero" and watchers tend to identify with the human companions, not the main character. That's how it's always worked.

//Plus, he actually is a medical doctor, which comes up in several episodes in several seasons. The crippling sociopathy tends to limit how often it's used, but when it finally involves saving his own skin the dude cures an entire race of zombie super-plague in a matter of seconds despite showing no intention of doing so when it looked like he was going to be able to escape through the side door.

Wippit, I hope the series doesn't forget to go back and have the Doctor talk with Brian, Rory's dad. We just met him a few episodes ago, and now his son and daughter-in-law are lost in time forever, living out life in the early 20th century. If Brian is never mentioned again, we have to assume the Doctor just abandoned him and will leave him completely heartbroken, wondering what happened to his family for the rest of his life, (and not knowing that his son and daughter-in-law at least had a happy life) all because the Doctor would rather avoid the conversation.

I really would like to see Amy and Rory get back to the present. Maybe the Doctor couldn't get back to the exact date they were dropped off in time or the exact area, but he could maybe materialize a year later a few hundred kilometers away, and then just travel, pick them up, return to the TARDIS, pay off a groundskeeper to create a gravestone with Amy and Rory's names and ages, then return to the present with no paradox. I'm hoping that's what Moffat is waiting to drop on us for the season finale.

The Doctor: Wotan

The TARDIS: Sleipner

You could even make comparisons to his sonic screwdriver being like Wotan's spear/staff.

Wotan in the original Anglo-Saxon myths, rather than the Scandinavian Odin myths we have come to know, was a grey wanderer who often lent wisdom and caused havoc wherever he went. His titles include not just Allfader and King of Asgard but also the Grey Wanderer and the Unfaithful Friend. Some of the more dour takes on Merlin were said to have possibly inspired the Wotan legend, or vice versa. He was also one of the inspirations for Tolkien's Gandalf, albeit a much more benevolent figure.

Wotan would travel throughout all places and times with his eight-legged horse. He was often a sign of ill events and would deceive people as much as Loki, but often with a sense of wisdom rather than folly. The Doctor seems to be a sci-fi take on the very same figure in Anglo-Saxon lore.

That argument's been already stated: the Doctor could go back to 5 years from where they are, pick them up and bring them back to the present.

Fun theory: there's decent evidence to suggest that instead of 1938 they ended up in the 50s or 60s, making it entirely possible for the Doctor to tell Brian that his son is alive in New York in the past and to go visit him. Could explain Brian's lack of surprise about the TARDIS and the Doctor in DoaS. This won't be shown in the series, of course. It's just something fun to think about.

Fun fact: they specifically wrote Amy going back in time and dying with Rory to prevent her from being seen again on the series, thinking that being seen again would lessen her actual death. Also, the entire point is that Amy said her last goodbye in the graveyard - meaning that would be the last time she ever saw the Doctor again. He would have to only travel with Rory, and that just wouldn't happen.

I think the plan is to set the sonic screwdriver to the "neuralizer" setting and flashy-thingy Rory's dad's memories away. That's what I'd do.

OR they'll just go with the alternate timeline thing they hinted at in the coda. The Doctor will meet Amelia Pond in her garden and tell her stories of adventures and not abandon her for 12 years so she goes nuts and creates the "Raggedy Doctor" in her mind all during her childhood. She'll live a normal life, meet Rory, get married, have Brian as father in law blah blah blah.

I think Steven Moffat kind of shiat the bed this season. Weeping Angels don't make noise, unless they are creepy little angel babies. Weeping Angles no longer get quantum locked when they look at each other apparently, and I guess there are plenty of times in New York City when no one is looking at the Statue of Liberty.

Lame. I hope the new companion can breathe new life into this season and the series.

I've been watching the series from the beginning, and I'm amazed by how dark the Hartnell episodes were. I have to admit, I avoided seeing The Tribe of Gum for a long time because I thought it would be too cringeworthy watching a bunch of cavemen. I was completely off base. The second episode in ended with a closeup shot of a skull with the back smashed in, which would be an equally powerful image today. This is back when the series was genuinely meant to be an older children/young adult series.

And then, in the Keys of Marinus, Barbara has an onscreen struggle with a woodsman who is obviously trying to rape her(!), and is later implied to have been eaten alive by wolves by the end of the episode, if I remember correctly.

That was also the serial when the Doctor created Forensics, and became the leader of CSI: Cavemen.

Hell no. I stopped watching it midway through last season because of that round-headed twat. She's the worst companion since Rose, which I thought wouldn't have been possible. I only watched this season because I knew the Ponds were going away. I giggled like a schoolgirl (twice!) at the end of last Saturday's episode. I'm hoping the show will again be enjoyable to watch.

I'm actually not fond of Matt Smith's Doctor, but I think that just from the Pond stench rubbing off on him, so I'm going to keep an open mind when the spring season starts.

I said it in the other thread... I think Matt Smith's Doctor has suffered because of Amy Pond.

The Doctor has been shoved into the background and treated as a supporting character in his own damn show so it could be ALL POND, ALL THE TIME! I think he'll finally be able to come into his own and take the spotlight with the red menace gone.

Matt Smith is the best doctor. Period. This season has been so incredible in that the Doctor managed to erase himself from history, and undo all the grandious showboating from that hack RTD and the abortion that was the David Tennant era. Think of the best episodes you know: all moffett episodes! This show has been fantastic the last two years and will continue to be so! River Song has been a wonderful complement ti the Doctor and tying her in with Amy and Rory was touching. No companions better suited the Doctor than them, they will be missed. But if they had to depart, it was done the best way possible.

I liked Rose, she was my first.

When I saw the preview for "Army of Ghosts" where she said "This is the story of how I died" in the voice over, I cringed.

It took me two weeks to finally watch the two episodes.

This season has been incredibly weak. None of the episodes have been above "mediocre". This last one had potential, but it squandered it, and the ending was frankly ridiculous. The show is getting sloppy.

I don't know if it's just that all of Moffet's good ideas are done, or if the writers have gotten a bit full of themselves. Someone will come in and say it's because BBC cut the budget, but smaller budgets don't mean the stories themselves will suck. And these mostly have.

I'm hoping the new companion will help. I'm really hoping we can get a consistent version of the Doctor. I'd also like to see more resolution with River.

Also, while I initially liked Amy, this season really made me not like her or Rory at all, and I was actually glad they were gone. That's a great failure on the show's part.

No way to do they introduce his character this series and then never mention him again after this episode. They've set up a dramatic scene where the Doctor is going to have to admit his failure in bringing his companions home, so we're sure to get one at some point in the second half.

You're assuming Rory and Amy from "Angels Take Manhattan" have been taken from roughly the same time period as the last episode with Brian. But the fact that it's made clear they've aged considerably indicates otherwise. Granted there's time travel involved, blah, blah, blah. But there's no reason to assume Brian is even still alive at this point in the Ponds' lives.

I wouldn't go as far as "incredibly weak," but I would say this half-season hasn't measured up. "Asylum" was a good idea, but ridiculously full of holes, the the whole contrived divorce subplot rendered Amy and Rory (especially Amy) wholly unlikable. Couples who love each other talk about their problems and concerns. "I'll drive you away so you can have a baby with someone else someday" is off-the-charts, unforgivably stupid. "Manhattan" was pretty good, but Moffat is wildly inconsistent about when he expects viewers to pay close attention to every detail and when he expects them to check their brains at the door. You can't have it both ways, Moffat. You can't expect people to follow incredibly complex timelines, and also expect them not to wonder how the Statue of Liberty could wander through New York unnoticed.

MattyFridays: Awfully considerate of the Angels to send the wife of the guy WHO JUST WIPED OUT A MAJORITY OF THEM to the same point in time.


I don't see why everyone is biatching about that.

It was pretty well established in the first appearance of the Angels that everyone creams their panties over that each Angel sends someone to a specific time period. The same Angel got the Doctor, Martha, and cop guy, and they all landed in 1969, Martha and the Doctor at roughly the same time since they were taken together, and cop guy at a later point since he was zapped later than The Doctor and Martha. End of story.

Out of all the things people can biatch about that don't make sense, this isn't one of them.

Note that Amy died at age 87 while Rory died at 82 (again, i might add). Obviously she got sent back 5 years earlier than Rory as neither can live without the other. Because this is the Twilight era of DW after all.

...sigh....Women live longer than men. Statistics supporting this conjecture...etc. etc....OH COME ON! The Angel sent them both back to the same time. They lived happily ever after for a few decades. He died first, she died later. Just be happy with the conclusion of the Amy and Rory story.

I only watched this season because I knew the Ponds were going away. I giggled like a schoolgirl (twice!) at the end of last Saturday's episode. I'm hoping the show will again be enjoyable to watch.

I'm actually not fond of Matt Smith's Doctor, but I think that just from the Pond stench rubbing off on him, so I'm going to keep an open mind when the spring season starts.


Wow. You're such a badass.

It's even more badass that you're stuck on David tenant as the real doctor.

FunkOut: SearchN: likefunbutnot: True story: I once got to see one of (in-TFamous professional attention whore) LBJ's co-workers lecture a 60 year old steelworker about Doctor Who for about 20 minutes. She had been talking about Doctor Who when I got there and she was still talking about Doctor Who when we left.

Word of advice, don't mention that name again. Lot's of us have seen the cornfield for it. If you are curious, EIP,

/damn it 2nd thread jack today.

Oh my, there's a few more things you should probably fill him in on for not mentioning. Or even asking about.


Sooo, how's gor---CARRIER LOST---

Broktun: I liked Rose, she was my first.

When I saw the preview for "Army of Ghosts" where she said "This is the story of how I died" in the voice over, I cringed.



I was so happy at the beginning of that episode and so disappointed at the end. Rose was a terrible character. Plus, she was like herpes, every now and then she'd flare up again when you thought she was gone. They even put her in an alt-verse and she still came back.

As much as people deride the Pond show, it is superior (IMHO) to the Rose show, especially the 2.0 version with emo-doc.

In the entire reboot I think the coolest moments were with Sarah Jane in the Reunion episode. Not the episode itself, but there were real moments in there, plus K9 made an appearance.

AdolfOliverPanties: OR they'll just go with the alternate timeline thing they hinted at in the coda. The Doctor will meet Amelia Pond in her garden and tell her stories of adventures and not abandon her for 12 years so she goes nuts and creates the "Raggedy Doctor" in her mind all during her childhood. She'll live a normal life, meet Rory, get married, have Brian as father in law blah blah blah.


You're forgetting that way back in the Eleventh Hour, you see little Amelia look up as if she sees something. It was brought up endlessly in discussions that season as people tried to figure out where the story arc was going. In other words, Moffatt already had it built into that episode that the future Doctor would go back and visit little Amelia in her garden and tell her stories.

Those are pretty good. Except:

A sentimental Britpop power ballad scors a tender scene about the power of love.

I have NEVER heard a Britpop song in a Doctor Who episode.

They mean the orchestral scores. You see Britain is so fancy their pop music is clasical.
