The LKH Bridge Scene Motion Comic.

Also, 20 teasers on 'Night Terrors', they are spoiler free, and really interesting, so check them out:

So... "Let's Put Hitler in a Cupboard" was very anticlimatic for me. I saw "the big twist" coming a mile away and nothing was really resolved in the episode, nor were any new questions really asked. Unlike the last half-season's opener, there was no real big cliffhanger. Big let down for me, hopefully the rest of the season doesn't blow.

The episode was just meh to me. It was a brilliant concept but I felt like parts were rushed like the ending, it was just way to fast for the reveal. i think the episode could have gone for an extra 5 minutes.

I don't know, my feeling of it was "wow, this is a brilliant episode...oh, it's suddenly finished. Should it have just suddenly finished?" Still really enjoyed it but couldn't escape that feeling of something being amiss, which is a shame.

Just to put the rest in spoilers:

The episode started off pretty slow, then picked up pace at the end, thus making it feel like it ended too soon. The cupboard world wasn't fleshed out enough in my opinion, and they should've had more time in there rather than "RUN!!!" It had a nice plot, but the delivery was just a bit off.

And Danny, that wasn't arc stuff at all. "Arc stuff" means something that's actually critical to the storyline, like the ends of The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood or The Doctor's Wife. This was more just a reminder that there's an arc in this season but that they probably won't go anywhere near it until the last two episodes of the season.

It is an arc... It's building up to a certain point... It's being mentioned every episode...

I noticed that as well, but instead of thinking about the thing that's actually Doctor Who related, I thought about the songs from The Wall by Pink Floyd.

Yeah, I noticed the flesh line.

Also, next Sat's episode is apparently:

...the least noticeable Doctor-lite episode there has ever been

Oh and the writer of the episode, Tom MacRae, teased 3 things about his ep:


'Closing Time' (Episode 12) Sypnosis

RAGE. THAT WAS ALL WRONG.

Why was future Amy concerned about not existing? If she never existed, then she'd be past Amy and none of that would have happened. no no Why be sad? It will never of happened...

And if it never existed, which it didn't, cause they saved past Amy, then how did past Amy remember Future Amy when she woke up? WAT.

Overall though, good.

Well, that was interesting. So the TARDIS can't sustain a time-paradox duplicate, eh? I wonder how large Future-Amy's Doom Field got?

I know this is slightly off topic but the writer of tonights episode is involved in a sitcom called "Threesome"

Tonight's episode was one of the only episodes I have watched from this series so far-

Incorrect. The timeline stayed intact, no paradox was formed. You sir, fail time travel and fifth dimensional geometry.

For a split second there was a paradox, until one of them got in the TARDIS.

No, there was an Amy from each point in a timeline that was running in a loop, rather than a divergent timeline. Not a paradox. Merely a wibble in the timeline.

The Amy from the divergent timeline would've been a paradox, since she shouldn't have existed from the point at which she made the decision to help "our" Amy.

As the end approached and the Doctor shut the door on Cougar Amy I thought how great it was that we weren't going to be subjected to the clichéd noble sacrifice. The Doctor lied, that was nice and gritty. But I thought too soon it seems.

Still enjoyed it a lot though.

Wait, now the titles of episodes are fucking spoilers? Sometimes they don't even relate to the events in the episode! Hitler was only in 'Let's Kill Hitler' for like 3 minutes! And they didn't kill him! It was a direct quote from the beginning of the episode! But did we know ANY of this from the title before the episode aired?! No.

This has gone too far.

Exactly, and in that case nobody cares. In this case, the title is a description of what happens in the episode (presumably), which is why he objected.

The title Let's Kill Hitler was shown to us in big letters at the end of A Good Man Goes To War, so mentioning it wasn't a spoiler. That said, I would have enjoyed the line "Let's kill Hitler!" in the episode more if I hadn't known the title of the episode beforehand, so make of that what you will.

I don't really know why the Doctor Who writers can't just name the episodes more subtly, though, instead of making them spoilers in themselves. I bet one of the future episodes will be titled "The Death of [insert beloved character here]". no no

Anyway, I thought the last two episodes were pretty meh. I'd been really enjoying the story-heavy episodes, these mid-season ones are just boring to me now.
