Is paraphrasing Shakespeare not worth anything these days?

He who paraphrases must be willing to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous posters who don't get it.

Well this episode was the one I was looking forward to the most, and it did not dissapoint! Awesome, and next week's looks even better! big grin

However, I heard the hotel was supposed to shift it's map and rooms, but it was just the same floor with different fears in each room. hmpf

Also, Daleks in the Doctor's room. big grin

I liked the fact that they didn't show directly what was in the Doctor's room. Initially I figured that his greatest fear would be his death at Lake Silencio. Since it keeps cropping up.

Incidentally, I really enjoyed The Girl Who Waited, as well. Amy pissed me off a little but Rory was fantastic and I did get a little choked up at the end when he was struggling to make his choice.

Looking forward to seeing next weeks episode, especially after the previews.

Awesome.

I thought that too, but he's seen so much and done so much, the Lake Silencio thing is pretty recent, I thought it wouldn't bother him too much. hmpf

The music that played when he opened the door has been in the series before, can't remember where though... Someone said it was from an ep with the Master...

Ah yes, but they keep showing the screen with his date of death in the episodes, so currently I would imagine that that is his biggest fear - we all know that he doesn't want to die... Tennant's Doctor showed that a lot more clearly.

Either way, damn good episode. I loved the way he thought the minotaur was talking about itself. And ancient being wandering through space. The look on his face when he realised was wonderful.

Anyone know if Amy and Rory are gonna be in the ep with Craig? I really, really hope they're not. I need a break from the ginger.

Uuuuh... I don't think so. I think they are in ep 12... I know for a fact they are in ep 13. But yeah, I think they leave again in ep 13, then come back in like 2 years or whatever.

Good?

I've just been reading on a DW forum, and there's a couple of interesting points that people are saying could be bloopers, but also could be signs that we're now dealing with Ganger Doctor.

1. He hates apples, yet he takes a bite of one and doesn't seem too bothered by it.

2. The rubix cube. We saw in a previous Ep that he couldn't solve it, yet in this episode he manages to.

Of course, could just be bloopers, but interesting points to be made about this Ep.

@Nutmeg:

I want the Doctor to pick up some new companions, mainly because Amy and Rory, I think, need to rest for a few seasons. Build up a nice comfortable life for the Doctor to forcibly yank them out of when he returns to them again.

I'd also like to see the Doctor cross paths with the Silastic Armourfiends of Striterax. But that's another kettle of fish altogether.

@Danny... I hope we do get a short break where the Doctor picks up some new companions. It'd be nice to see him take an alien for few trips in the TARDIS for once.

I'd love a one-shot where the Doctor meets a friendly Dalek, and the two solve some improbable mess on an alien planet somewhere. The Doctor names him Steve or something. The two part as friends, and the next time we see Daleks, the Doctor is all "hey, do you guys know Steve?"

I'm guessing that'll never happen.

When wil Martha come back? Did something happen to her in Torchwood or something? The Doctor just kind of abandoned her.

Hopefully never. The Doctor's abandoned companions in all sorts of messes over the years. Not every supporting character's entire lifwe story needs to be told... contrary to RTD's apparant thinking. I hope it's a mistake that Moffat steers well and truly clear of. I hope he writes the "Steve the Dalek" story instead.

James Corden isn't the best actor around, (not that his acting is bad, he's just a little annoying) but I liked him in 'The Lodger'.

It's Gallifrey Base. You'd need to register.

Tnuk: to be honest, I didn't pick up on it, but for what it's worth I agree with you. I really want to see more happening with regards to those creatures, but I do want the mystery to stay focused on the Doctor.

2. The rubix cube. We saw in a previous Ep that he couldn't solve it, yet in this episode he manages to.

I wouldn't term this a continuity error by itself. It's much more likely that once confronted with this weakness, the Doctor took it upon himself to learn how to solve the cube, and succeeded. However, taking into account the apple....

I think it's likely that one difference between the Doctor and his Ganger is that the Ganger has learned how to solve the cube, and the Doctor hasn't. Of course, that raises questions about where the Doctor is, and at what points they keep switching.

Indeed, if they're both alive and... real, so to speak, then they'll both be having different experiences. Xanfor does raise a good point though. He seems the sort to want to learn to do something the minute he figures out that he can't.

Of course he could have just been being silly. He also does that.

Something I noticed: why does the Doctor put a 'Please Do Not Disturb' sign on his door?

Oh and you can hear the TARDIS' cloister bell behind his door too, I remembered what it was. tongue

Well my guess is that the Doctor's greatest fear would be having the TARDIS dying or being lost to him.

Also if it is the Ganger Doctor, then that kind of removes any tension over the Doctor being shot and dying, maybe they will do something interesting just have to wait and see,

As for the next episode, really could not care less.  do not like James Cordon and his last episode was my least favourite of last season.  Why they fealt the need to revisit this character I have no idea.

I didn't like Craig the first time I saw him, I really didn't. But having watched that episode again it's grown on me. He's just an everyday kinda guy and that's what I like about him. He's nothing special, he's not like the companions who somehow have this amazing ability to overcome things. He's just Craig.

Also: . Here's hoping they're better than the last times.

The Lodger is one of my faves from Series 5, also, bad news wu_konguk, they are planning to make James Corden's eps into a trilogy. So The Lodger, Closing Time and then a third one. tongue

Hey, you never know.

After all wasn't there an episode of Battlestar Galactica (1980) where essentially this happened with Starbuck and a Cylon centurion?

The ending sounds good, the rest not so much.
Liked the last episode, it was very good, the right mix of scary and story, like a Stephen King novel.
I hope the finale will be a good ending with a nice twist on the Dr's 'death' that isn't too boring or predictable.

I really enjoyed The God Complex. Good concept, good execution. I loved the part where the Doctor had to shatter Amy's faith in him, although they did seem to milk that scene a bit much.

Much better than the last two episodes, hopefully the end of this season is fantastic.

As for the Doctor currently being his Ganger...it's probably a correct theory. But I really hope it's not. They already pulled that type of trick with Amy this season, repeating themselves with the same sort of switcheroo would be boring. Here's hoping for something less predictable.
