Re: Doctor Whom

Okay, no one has addressed this at all yet, I guess because of all the other stuff but the hatch, what the hell is up with the hatch? It had no relevance to the episode at all just bam, hatch in a door, lady with a metal plate on her face looks out, says "she" (probably Amy but not ne...

Re: Doctor Whom

I'm also in the "Amy isn't pregnant" camp. I mean, it's just too coincidental that both she and River encounter the Silents(ce) and then feel sick afterwards. If she is pregnant however, it's implied that she had known for a while (the 1100 year old Doctor note...
