whizbangthedirtfarmer: 2) I have no problem with the TARDIS. I have a problem with the two things: 1) the "movie poster" concept. Moffat apparently believes that people who watch Who are too dim too keep up with "big" story arcs, or that it is simply too hard to put one together and maintain some coherence.
HotWingAgenda: Is this the thread where we all gather to pretend the Doctor can just keep respawning infinitely like a hacked Mario game?http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/2010/oct/12/doctor-who-immort al -reveals-bbchttp://thedoctorwhopodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=427.0
prjindigo: I look at the headline again and realize that <b>subby</b> hasn't actually seen JLC's boobs.So in the start of the show the asian boy in the work room calls the uploaded people "spring heads".Mindspring reference. Dead cold fact.
cptjeff: gingerjet: I'm shocked that everyone has missed the most critical and controversial element of this episode: the Doctor wears a clip on bow tie./the Who universe is now shaken to its coreEveryone missed this, you say?cptjeff: jack21221: Monks are not cool!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.Yeah, I'm disappointed. It was in one of the previews, so I knew it was coming, but still. Really? They're not that hard to tie, and the Doctor has never really struck me as the clip on type. More the 'make things obnoxiously complicated and weird' type. Hence the scarf. And the clown suit. And the cape. And the flute. And the cane. And the decorative vegetable. But it's been obvious that it's a clip on for a while now (for the non-bowtie savvy out there, they really are that obvious), so it's not like this is a great revelation.
dennysgod: One interesting note in regards to the mysterious "lady in the shop" that gave Clara the TARDIS number is that in the BBC shop channel where you can buy DVD's and stuff for the description of Season 1 with Eccleston it refers to the Doctors new companion as "His new assistant is Rose (Billie Piper), a shop-girl from the present day".
Darth_Lukecash: No, she's done. It's the whole point of her character. The doctor and Rivers relationship is in reverse.
cptjeff: RevMercutio: Jensaarai: My lulzy nonserious prediction: Clara is River post-library. (Hey, we're in a big evil computer downloading and uploading souls kick.) She goes through a bastard version of regeneration every time she dies, where she keeps her form, but gets dumped in a random time period and loses most of her experience points.River gave up her re-gen energy to save the Doctor after she poisoned him.There are ways around that. Say, when the library saved her, it somehow restored things. Or if something dumps a lot of time energy into the library computer to get it to recreate her body... You know, somehow.Let's just say that I don't think River is out for the count.m
Pawn takes the King: I saw a nod to Baker with the scarf, I heard some snark at Tennant with being on chapter 10 & "11 is the best".. I missed the nod to Pond everyones talking about. Wha'd I miss?
dopekitty74: cptjeff: TheManofPA: So, River works in the shop now?Well, for the three minutes she needed to, anyhow.Wait, what? I didn't see River.... or was the black girl Melody?
Girion47: I loved the homage to Amy Pond in this episode.
silgryphon: jack21221: silgryphon: Please tell me I missed one episode before this season startedDid you see the Christmas episode? That's the only one.Yes I didSo good, good thing I was surfing the TV
TheManofPA: So, River works in the shop now?
Flint Ironstag: Anderson's Pooper: Solid ep with a possible spoilery villain. No real info on Oswin though./Snog boxThe '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?
