Pepperjack: Agreed. I read an interesting quote from Moffat about the origin of River Song's name. He and RTD were on the message boards at the time and noticed the fans abbreviating the episode titles. Aliens Of London became AOL. They decided to try to make ep titles that would spell naughty words. Moffat came up with At River Song's End to spell ARSE. They laughed and he forgot about it until he needed a character name when writing Silence In The Library. Then, when he took over, Amy Pond was named Pond to be able to tie into the Melody Pond/River Song arc he had in mind. That guy is so far ahead of us we should probably just give up.
TheManofPA: 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.I'm hoping she is. If her last episode ends with the Doctor giving the screwdriver and then leaving her to visit the library, it is a very nice little arc. Mind you the other argument is that he's the Doctor, he's gone hundreds of years at this point, and he'll damn make sure that everybody lives given that amount of time.
cretinbob: You'd have to have read the book.
Crackers Are a Family Food: I also need to rename my wifi network.
cptjeff: I missed that one, though it's been a while since I read the Dirk Gently stuff.
hangingbrautwurst: Loved the episode, but who is the mastermind behind the wifi mind robbers?
unlikely: Spoiler: The writing, not the new Tardis Boobs Accessory, will be vapid and brainless.
johnnieconnie: Nobody better spoil tomorrow's Game of Thrones, either
