Well, apparently in Moffat's version of Doctor Who, love and sorrow apparently defeat all of the enemies. So a Doctor Who wedding seems fitting.

/last night's ep was craaaaap (which lots of money spent on it though).

That is the lamest Tardis replica attempt I have ever seen

It was underwhelming to say the least. I think it is probably because they had the writer for Luther doing it, and he just doesn't know how over done the emo crap is in Doctor Who lately.

/Still better than Tinkerbell Jesus Doctor.

SPOILERS in this post, if you didn't watch last night.

Tinkerbell Jesus? Where the good feelings of the entire world were tied into recharging the shrivelled up Tennant so he could again act with his teeth? That was a little weak, yes.

I'm starting to get the impression that Doctor Who really is a children's show in mature clothing. I think we consider it otherwise because it comes from another culture and thus has an air of sophistication about it (because our children's programming usually talks down to them like they're little morons).  This theory also explains why some of us are nuts about anime programs despite them being clearly childrens' shows in Japan. (I am not into Anime, but you gotta admit, any show with shrieking children who get to save the day is ultimately low hanging fruit meant for children, because they rarely save the day).

But with this last night's episode, plus the one where Craig was turned into a Cyberman but cried about his baby and killed the Cybermen with love, were complete farking shiat. If the unfilled potential of a dead family member not being their for theoretical later events was enough to implode a giant evil star thing, it woulda choked the first time it met anyone ever. There's no farking logic to it.

I'm convinced that Clara is some sort of trap engineered to mess with the Doctor.

I wouldn't call it a children's show, but it is designed to be family friendly.  I enjoyed the BSG reboot, but at times I felt that it was trying to hard to be edgy and profound, and as a result fell flat.

Yes, there have been some moments in Doctor Who that feel a bit Disney, but the show has never been about hard science and technology anyway.

One of the central narratives since the 2005 re-launch has been that there is nothing more powerful than the human spirit, and sometimes that means that love, memories, unrealized potential, and other soft things end up being more powerful than planet sized monsters.  It's not supposed to be realistic, I just enjoy it for what it is.

Yeah, but the whole "power of love will save the day" is an incredibly overdone trope lately, and it needs a bit of a rest. If you are going to do something like this, at least subvert it a bit where bad emotions defeat the baddie (of course even that was done twice with The Curse and the Fenric and The God Complex where the a loss of faith in The Doctor saves the day). I'd prefer if we got back to the 70's era Who a little more where some Venusian Akido saves the day or the Doctor just electrocutes everyone.

The numbers in this week's Doctor Who comment threads, and the total lack of facebook comments on it agree with you. It was terrible. So terrible that the "Moffat is out God" types aren't even bothering to defend it. I'm still hoping this season will pull out of it's nosedive, but if that episode sets the bar in any way, we're freaking doomed.

I'm not so negative about this season.   Asylum of the Daleks, Dinosaurs on a SpaceshipA Town Called Mercy, and Angels Take Manhattan, were all in the very good to excellent range for me.  Power of three was entertaining, but maybe missed a bit more than it hit.

I'd like to see Russel T Davies come back and write some more, I do love a number of his episodes, but Moffat has some solid credits to his name as well.  He's also been willing to get out of the 'love will save us all' trope, A Good Man Goes to War is a badass episode.  I rewound and rewatched the scene where Rory and The Doctor blow up the Cybermen fleet just to emphasize their point several times.

For me, it's been the worst season of Nu-Who, by a landslide. Angels Take Manhattan and Dinosaurs are are flash and no substance, a writer's room full of "oooh, this might be cool!!!!", they're trying so hard to be clever, without realizing that we don't want clever, we want good storytelling. Clever is just slight of hand.

I've been a fan of a certain EPL team for over a decade. Some years, they're unbelievable, and I sing their praises from the rafters. Other years, they barely manage to show up, and I complain and point out their shortcomings. But I watch them EVERY year.

I've been watching Doctor who since the 1980's. Same rule holds. I want the Doctor to show up this year.

Pretty sure there was no actual wedding - seems like just a wedding *idea* with photographs to show it off. I don't think anyone actually got married. Note "fictional wedding."

Theme weddings are the kind of thing that says, "We are  so  not ready for marriage." to me.

It's not a hobby convention or costume party. It's a ceremony of love and commitment, and including a fictional character in the arrangement is a recipe for disaster. You may think it's cool now, but in ten years one of you (probably the wife) is going to look back and get this feeling like nobody took it seriously, and suddenly they're going to resent the theme wedding and wish that they'd had a nice ceremony that didn't treat the relationship and the vows like some kind of party game or joke. They'll be showing the wedding pictures to friends and get embarrassed, and they'll blame their spouse for cornering them into it (even if that's not the case).

Eventually, they'll come to see the theme wedding as some sort of proof that the other person never took their marriage seriously, and disaster will follow.

Only partially off-topic, but the new episode is getting absolutely blasted online in various review outlets, and like the trend of the past few years, even the official advertising outlet--DWM--is trying very very hard to create a sort of apologia for the episode.  Moffat meant to do this, and the writers tried to do this.

Basically, it sounds like the writers started with Smith's speech and built outwards from there.

Dinosaurs was a good popcorn episode.  But it failed to be one of the all-time greatest episodes ever, because where the hell was Kevin?
