And here on the eve of the rest of the season, major spoilers about the 50th Anniversary special were leaked because some subscribers got their copies of next week's Doctor Who magazine early.

The news is over at www.bleedingcool.com . I'm not even linking to the damn article, because the url gives the spoilers away.

So, uh, go there at your own risk.

Anyway, the beginning of the girl out of time tonight. Ace 2.0.

Thanks for the warning. Media blackout commencing for today then. Except for Fark, that is.

Don't watch it on BBC America. They cut it to pieces, interrupt it with commercials every 8 minutes, etc. It messes up the flow of the show. Something exciting is about happen then all the sudden they cut to commercials about life insurance. Just download it illegally or wait a couple days and rent it uncut in HD thru Amazon streaming.

Spoiler: The writing, not the new Tardis Boobs Accessory, will be vapid and brainless.

We went back and watched the Eccleston and first two Tennant seasons last week to introduce my parents to the show. While there were a few dicey ones in those, and while there have been one or two gems recently, overall the writing on the past dozen episodes or two has been a pale ghost of those.

The neatest thing I learned was that naming Oswin 'Clara' was in honor of Elisabeth Sladen.

/blackout due to party

A) Will there be running in this episode?
B) Where are they getting the milk for the souffles?

Yeah I caught some of the Eccleston eps again, and damn it I wish there had been more.

Really? Then I guess you won't have to watch it!

If there was anything more vapid and empty as RoseTyler, THE MOST IMPORTANT GIRL EVER IN DOCTOR WHO's LIFE! I'd like to know.

Seriously, Doctor Who has been enjoying its biggest ratings since the Reboot. Now with a new mysterious companion, off we go!

Anderson's Pooper: Solid ep with a possible spoilery villain.  No real info on Oswin though.


/Snog box


It's the appetizer. Yes, good ep but I am definately missing the 1 1/2 hour sows of the old days. It could have been so much more developed.
On the other hand, instead of 30 minutes a week it's 42ish.

The 'big reveal' is that this Clara is not super brainy, unlike the other two we've seen. since she couldn't even sort out her wifi, until she got a brain boost from the uploading and downloading. Presumably she's kept the boosted IQ.Does that mean the other versions are 'later' copies of her?  Is this River Song 2.0 again where we've seen a character at a far later point in her timeline?

She remembered stuff from Asylum to Snowmen but didn't seem to have any recollection of those eps in this one.  We've had some previous companions who weren't that smart and they turned out all right (Leela).  As to keeping her boosted IQ, I assume she got reset to factory specs like everybody else.
 
2013-03-30 07:21:08 PM  
Spoilers........
Stll 45 minutes til BBCA.

THe Bells of St. Johns was pretty clever. I realised what it was just before it was really obvious.

And watch this before you start thinking you have Oswin figured out yet.

//watching it again.

No, they say she's clever. She just doesn't know computers. They give her an upgrade that she gets to keep later in the episode. It's kind of a plot point with a twitter joke.
 
2013-03-30 07:42:26 PM  
My feeling on the episode was kind of "meh".  Can't really put my finger on a specific reason for why.

Jon Snow rides south on his wolf, and kills Tyrion.

Is BBCA doing the thing they've done with a few episodes recently with showing them un-shortened during the first run, or are they chopping the crap out of it?
 
2013-03-30 07:59:49 PM  
It's time.
 
2013-03-30 08:03:59 PM  
My assumption with Clara is that the original version of her that the Doctor first met, actually infected all of the conversion nanobots on that Dalek prison planet just before it exploded. I figure they all carried copies of her personality and knowledge, and got scattered to the 4 winds when the planet blew up.

I think perhaps there is a nano-bot that got loose on Earth and is continually re-creating Clara. When a version dies, it makes a new one. And the knowledge continues to be passed on along with that.

I'm just disappointed that the Doctor wears a clip on. I'd suspected it for a long time, because the ones they have Matt Smith wear were mostly fairly obvious to those of us who actually wear bowties, but now it's official.

The TARDIS could have intercepted the call. She did that when Churchill tried to call the Doctor and spoke to River instead.
