Re: Doctor Who

Spoiler:
The wife idea is too obvious, I must say, one thing that you should never do is take Dr Who at face value, if Amy keeps asking if she's his wife, chances are she's not. It's just the way Dr Who works, stuff is never obvious.

Re: Doctor Who

Sure, but the fact that there's times when the camera is the only observer and they still don't move just irks me. Feel free to only show them when characters are watching, or better yet go first-person, just don't have the camera's presence affect the plot. Another interpretation would be to take ...

Re: Doctor Who

The odd thing is, the Doctor stated that when any living, organic creature observes an angel they turn to stone, so how does a camera turn it to stone? Well, that was my original question, until Amy stopped looking and found it was actually moving.

Re: Game Prices

As a side note, I generally find the following:

PS3 games start at... £50?
Wii games start at £25 or something, depending on the game, haven't bought any in a long time.
PC Games vary, the big hats generally go for £25-30.
