It's cheap and they want to save their budget for the finale? I tend to prefer a

While I hate the slitheen and the adipose just as much as the next guy, this particular form of human monster is getting somewhat tired. Can't they just glue a bunch of rubbish together and pull it along the floor with a string like they used to?

I liked this episode, very much. Although I'll admit that:

Spoiler:
I did probably enjoy the 'violence against old people' a bit too much. Also, the Dream Doctor / Possible Valeyard was a very good character, well written and very well acted.

I'm warming to Rory a lot more. This may or may not be related to the fact that he bashed an old woman with a plank.

I like Rory more now, as well. In the previous episodes, he kinda felt like a Joxer the Mighty-esque stooge that didn't really contribute anything to the story at all.

I think the implication was that the it was a diagnostic of the crack, and that's when the event that caused the cracks would happen.

I vote that
Spoiler:
the crack/silence is all a manifestation of the Dream Lord. The Doctor wanted a shiny new apocalypse to thwart, so his unconscious made one.
Or not... That'd be a little dumb.

Spoiler:
No, the Doctor has a very low self esteem, look at what he's done in the past (killing entire species, his own race, etc...), if you were him, you'd hate yourself to the ends of the universe too.

I think I'm going to be on my own with Crowey here in not loving the episode. It wasn't "bad" as such just not as good as I was expecting it to be (other shows have pulled off similar concepts much better).

Having said that, theories here:
Spoiler:
The Dream Lord being the Valeyard (after doing some reading up on the Dr Who Wiki to refresh my Valeyard knowledge) seems very likely. Both because of the similaraties in the characters and their intents and the fact that Moffart seems to like looking backwards for inspiration.

Here's an out of the park theory, what if the Valeyard/Dream Lord is a botched regeneration after this one? Say when Matt Smith Doctor dies the regen botches and we get a dark evil Valeyard/Doctor where his mind hasn't had chance to form properly so his dark side surfaces and he then becomes the big bad. What if then the Doctor's allies (lead by River) who were helping him defeat the big bad that caused him to be killed, in turn had to then turn on him to save the day. You could imagine that River may have to kill him.

In my head that would satisfy her comments in the angels two parter as to whom she killed and also the "not always what it seems when Moffart is involved" quotent.

The entire room of people I was in simulataneously went "vrooooooom......bang...owwwwww it didn't work!" when we saw what was happening :P


Amy and Rory:
Spoiler:
I really like how they're making everything to be about her, because I'm starting to think it might be all a bit of a bluff. Amy's boys? There's definately something going on there. And Rory actually got character development! And the bit with the ponytail was adorable. I especially liked him hitting old people away though...[/


Doctor:
Spoiler:
I love how he insulted everything about himself - the tawdry quirks, the way he just leaves people behind, and all of that. I thought it was wonderful to see that the Dr is no longer as god-like and is kinda human in a way after all. I kind of want him to be the villain now (well, the Dreamlord anyway)


New interesting conspiracy theory suggested by a friend!
The entire series is a countdown. Well, that seems obvious, but:
Spoiler:

Elizabeth TEN
There were 9 daleks (apparently, I haven't checked this)
Father Octavian
There were SEVEN vampires - Queen, Son, 5 Girls
6 pollen specks. Apparently.
Thoughts?

Eh... 3 older Daleks, 5 Technicolor Daleks, and Bracewell... I guess technically that's 9. I'm iffy about including Bracewell in the count, and even without him, the two groups of Daleks are hardly cohesive.
beyondweird wrote:There were SEVEN vampires - Queen, Son, 5 Girls
There were more than 5 girls. I count 6, 7 if you include Isabella. But maybe that's your seven - seven converts.

I'll also mention the law of small numbers, though... pick a number and an episode, and I'm sure you'd be able to find something relevant to that number in that ep. The only one that stands out to me is the title of the first episode, but even then, that's probably what turned your friend onto the countdown idea in the first place.

Also, given the spacing of double episodes and whatnot this season, this'll have us reaching "2" at the finale... there's 10 stories this season - 13 episodes, but 3 two-parters.

Amy's Choice episode:
Spoiler:
Just watching Amy's Choice again and, as I suspected at the time, the Doctor's bow tie and braces change between the normal red in the TARDIS and blue in Leadworth (sorry, Upper Leadworth). It could be argued that Rory and Amy's clothes alternate as well: Rory has a blue jacket in Leadworth and a more red top in the TARDIS while Amy has a bright orange/red top underneath in the TARDIS with a blue jacket over the top while in Leadworth she has a red top over a blue one.

Obviously Amy and Rory would be wearing different clothes 5 years into the future but I see little reason for the Doctor to have changed bow tie and braces (and only those) which is why I suspected that Leadworth was the dream at the time. There were also more mentions of the Doctor's bow tie than normal (at least I think more than normal). Not sure what I think the reasoning behind the change is after both were shown as false. Could just be to encourage the viewer to think Leadworth is a dream and the TARDIS isn't but it seems too small a detail just for that so I thought I'd throw it out there. Any ideas?

P.S. Personally I still find Rory quite annoying and hope he isn't around too much

It's not so much "still angsting" as "angsting again" since he just had to repeat that unhappy decision. Plus, the Dream Lord never mentioned killing his own species--just a bunch of other Doctor-y traits that stick out.

I think they got the Rory/Amy relationship worked out a little better this episode. As it was, I was going to have a hard time buying her going back to Rory, and didn't want to see her turn into another Doctor-obsessive. The sort of consciousness-shredding experience they put her through was what they needed to reform their relationship into something more believably devoted.

I don't think the "only person who could hate me as much as you" comment was relating to the usual "survivors guilt" of the time war as such. If you think about it from a truly psychological point of view, there's nothing quite as powerful as self loathing sometimes. People can dislike you and call you names all they like but the one person who can truly hate you and have it matter more than anything is yourself.

Pretty much all of the aliens that are on Earth in numbers are because their home planet has had badness.
Adipose, Pyrovile, Space-fish, Cybermen, Daleks at various points. Those are just the ones I know of from the new series so it makes a certain degree of sense for the Doctor's subconscious to put them on Earth for that reason.

I hadn't heard that it had been confirmed but I'd suspected as such as she's "Moffart's character" in a manner of speaking so I dare say she'll be like Jack and pop in at all the real important points. Maybe the end of the series will be the opening of the pandorica?

Seeing as this series seems to be all Amy centric (as in the big bad cracks seems to be very linked into her) I'm wondering how it'll end and if it'll end in such a way that Amy won't be the companion next year? I can't see them doing that as she seems to be such a popular character but with it all being "about her" it makes me wonder.

Shouldn't it be "The Pandorica Open"?

Spoiler:
only if Pandorica is a plural, rather than just a word that ends with an a

Spoiler:
Or if it's being used as a collective noun, in which case both "open" and "opens" could be considered correct.

I think it seems quite obvious that Moffart is trying in the most part to distance himself from the previous series as much as possible (new tardis, new darleks, new doctor, new theme tune, new screwdriver, etc) the only thing that has been brought forward has been River & she was in the last series as a bit of a setup for him taking over in the future anyway.

Yes Jack was originally a character created for one of his episodes but he was very much a part of the old doctor.

If you don't believe any of that to be true there is also the additional info that until about a month ago when it fell through the BBC were in talks about doing a new Torchwood series in partnership with Fox in the US which would have moved Torchwood to be US based, so they may have just been holding the character back because of that possibly taking off.

US based Torchwood? But that's our spin off. D:

Also, Jack can't be gone really, they wouldn't dare, he's just too loved, and fits in rather nicely with the more risque jokes in the new series.
