Felt like a padding episode which is disappointing when the series appears to be finishing next week, Corden was meh and the story was poor, Moffat can write love based stories really well so it was a shame this one wasnt up to it

As for next week, who is in the box?

Well, sort-of-high hopes for the two part finale, and Matt Smith is back for the next season, which will allow some development, hopefully. Oh, and Neil Gaiman has written an episode. Yay, squee, etc.

I was a pessimist when they said Matt Smith was going to be the new doctor, but he's defernately turned me round. Unfortunately the stories he's had so far and the bad acting from his assistant brings it down a bit. There's also been too many stories on Earth, theres not been many new aliens or anything. Earth can sustain a few episodes but they should travel a bit out I reckon.

Bump.

Disappointing first half to the finale. Hopefully the second part will justify it.

I agree with Chay, it was a great episode, some good scares and a nice emotional scene which I won't spoil. I can't wait to see what happens next week.

The only disappointment was that Amy was wearing jeans not her trademark miniskirt flirt

Eccleston and Tennant never really sold me on Dr Who, but so far Smith I've quite liked. Only downside: us broadcasts are running 3 weeks behind. Outrageous! I'm American! We're supposed to get the good TV first!

I figured that bit out early on. The disappointment comes from a few factors, no , River Song being able to do so much without the Doctor's help, , the fact that cybermen do not work that way, are not built that way, and have never been able to time travel, the co-operating with other people, the stupidity of
and the fact that the Sonic Screwdriver seems more and more to be being used as a massive handwave for things. Originally, it wasn't much more than a screwdriver that worked at a distance... now it's able to do all sorts of weird and undefined shit.

I dunno. I'm just hoping that the finale will be a good one. The entire season thus far has been pretty decent. I have hope.

I'm of the opinion that the Doctor isn't actually doing much with his sonic, he just likes to wave it around otherwise he just looks like a normal bloke. E.g. when he checks to see if Amy is OK.

Also would love to have seen how quickly that room cleared out as the alliance slowly realise that it wont be long before the Daleks remember their raison d'etre.

Vincent and the Doctor
A bit worried about this one, because I believe when they go back in time to meet historical figures it wouldn't be believable, but they kept Vincent van Gogh true to his alleged character. Fun.

The Big Bang was a great conclusion to Matt Smith's first series Playing The Doctor. There were some nice surprises, some excitement and The Doctor wearing a Fez. As the universe and the Tardis had been destroyed The Doctor had his work cut out restoring things to how they should have been.

Loved the finale, loved the look of the "reconstituted" dalek, and loved the fact that the Doctor is no longer part of some insane menage a trois.

I could nick-pick about the flaws in the "now it never existed" theme of the series, but ultimately I also loved the finale - certainly I think one of the best, if not the best finales of the New Doctor. Matt Smith is a fine Doctor, and, much as I did really like Ecclestone and Tennant's Doctors, I like how Smith's Doctor is more...alien. Also lovely is that now he has companions, not just "issues". Romantic tension dealt with - even effectively dismissed - fairly quickly. Gallifrey barely mentioned. The Doctor has moved on. Very much looking forward to the next series.

Here in Aussie-tralia we're up to The Lodger. A bit creepy but predictable, kind of dragged, felt a bit complexicated.? I noticed the guy from Gavin & Stacey was there. Something that really confuses me was why they would stay in that house when that (presumed) man on the (presumed) upper floor was doing really bright and weird things that sounded bad, I'd have just gotten the hell out of there. I just didn't like this one as much as the others.

I thought the finale was a bit confusing, although the only episodes this series I have watched are the lodger, the finale part 1+2, and the Van Gogh episode, so maybe there was some references to earlier in the series.

Seriously! "Hay guys, i just watched the latest episode of True Blood, and I didn't think it was very good, i didn't know who any of the characters were, and for some reasons there were vampires, but everyone seemed to be alright with it! I mean, i've not watched any of the other episodes, or read anything about the show, also, I fall down a lot, but still, average episode."

Finale Part 1

Wow. Just... wow. That ending was amazing. Especially where it panned out and showed all of the other planets and galaxies exploding. It was incredible.

Now I want to know how the fuck it ends.

so finally watched the rest of this season. Quite enjoyed the ending.

In all other regards, I loved the season. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the van Gogh episode too; really wasn't expecting much, but the episode ended up being quite enjoyable. If I weren't so damned manly, I might've even teared up a little at the end. Of course, I am so damned manly, so I certainly didn't do anything of the kind.

Great season, much better than I expected. I was quite partial to 10th Doctor, but I'm definitely liking 11th. And Amy is far less annoying than the 10th's companions. My favorite episode of the season was the van Gogh episode (Do people really call him "van goff"? They said "van go" earlier in the episode then just went to only "van goff"), but an interesting one was the second part of the Weeping Angels episode. Much enjoyed how they tied it back to the season's story arc.


So, being that Big Bang 2 recreated a universe in which the Doctor didn't exist, would that mean that Gallifrey, the Master, etc. now exist again?

The Doctor was in a 2-parter of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and in a conversation with the little black kid (I don't know names, was only watching cause i knew this conversation took place) he was asking about regeneration (Black kid saw him as DT in an earlier season) and after a few rapid fire questions he asks "How many times can you do it?" to which The Doctor replies "507." and that's it.

RTD (who wrote the episode) said it was just a joke, and that 13 is still way too ingrained in peoples minds for it to change like that.

Thanks for the explanation, I've never watched SJ's adventures.

507 works for me, I sure as hell don't want there to be only two more - that would suck. And the simplest explanation would be that it is a Time Lord enforced law, no Time Lords, no law of Gallifrey, no regen limit. Solved. But I want 10 years of MS, he's great at it.

Saw the BBC's new Xmas lineup trailer. Looks like the Doctor will find himself in A Christmas Carol. Not sure if I like that idea.

Xmas special was suitably silly, and thankfully not literally set in A Christmas Carol.

New series trailer has two things to look forward to: The Doctor in a Stetson ("Stetson's are cool") and a naked River Song (curse the pre-watershed air time).

I thought the Christmas Special was really good, they did the 'Christmas Carol' thing well and didn't cop out with a happy ending, keeping it bitter-sweet was wise. The only fault was that there wasn't enough Amy Pond; I liked that she wore her 'sexy policewoman' costume again though love

I kindly disagree with you Tweek, I prefer the episodes just around the doctor and has hardly any of his assistant. Just like the (Midnight) episode where it's just all about the doctor, but that's probably because I prefer the Baker, T years when the assistant didn't do too much. Enjoyed the episode, Gambon acted well for once and Jenkins has one hell of a voice.
