The end did make me laugh "An Egyptian goddess loose on the Orient Express... IN SPACE." I think it will be the inexpicably cockney Liz Ten for the Christmas episode.

Perhaps this link wasn't consciously intended when The Beast Below was written and cast, but I couldn't help but think of Liz Ten's cockney accent as a reference to those tabloid reports from a few years ago that said that SCIENTISTS!!! had ANALYSED!!! Elizabeth II's Christmas speeches and found that over the past 50 years her accent has gradually become less RP and more cockney. (Here are two of the first Google search results about it. Yeah, one of those is the Mail. Sorry.) The assumption being that if that trend continues, by the time of The Beast Below you'd end up with a monarch that speaks like Liz Ten.

I doubt it was intended, Dr Who never seems to pay attention to accents, like van Gogh being Scottish. Admittedly they did reference the accent in that, but still...

You, sir, name? wrote:I greatly prefer Matt Smith to Tennant and Eccleston. They didn't really feel like the older doctors, especially not Tennant. But Smith feels a great deal like the more eccentric original doctors, say Tom Baker and Sylvester McCoy.


Big Bang episodes where actually much more enjoyable for me with Matt Smith as the Doc, (might be because it was more focused on the other characters) but I still can't get into the character as easy as before. With the other doctors to me anyway, they felt like they really did have a past, but not Matt Smiths. Just personal preference I guess.

I agree the eccentricity is there, but if I were faced with this latest Doctor I'm not sure I'd feel as secure as I would with the others who seemed a lot more knowledgeable.

Well...remember that much of the first part was A Trap. I see several interpretations:
-The Alliance was holding back and waiting to open it until they were ready to face the Doctor together.
-The Pandorica had to initialize or "boot up" somehow--hence 'The Pandorica is ready...for you'
-The Pandorica was set to open at a particular time, at which point the Alliance showed up. The Doctor showed up a mite early, but really just on schedule.

It was opening from the inside in the first part. In the second part it was opening from the outside.
The Doctor even said it's easy to get in to a prison from the outside but much harder from the inside.
He thought there was a being stained with the blood of a million galaxies within it, hence not being too eager to open it himself.

Not surprisingly I've been spending WAY too much time browsing TV Tropes right after the finale ended, and here's a sort of laundry list of working explanations I've inferred from all that fan speculation I picked up on:

Spoiler:
-The entire universe was blinking out of existence, little by little. I'm sure a couple cardinal rules of physics/time travel may have disappeared with it as well.
-With regards to complex time events I'm sure "undoing the death of a man in a preestablished point in the timeline" and anything else in that proximity (i.e. "Father's Day") must rank a little differently than "sticking the Living Timey Wimey Ball into an everything-proof prison in a way that would surely exhibit immediate side effects on all of existence" (i.e. the Pandorica)
-something bad did happen after Big Amy touched Little Amy... the latter blinked out of existence somewhere within that intervening twelve minutes.
-I remember reading somewhere that since the Sun was gone and it was the the exploding TARDIS taking its place in the Earth's sky instead, some of its signature TARDIS-y time traveller protection may have held up to an extent.


Anyway, I'll probably need to watch the episode again for the infuriating little niggles to finally sink in. I'm not good with rationalizing fictional time paradoxes. :P

Rassilon. Because the 'silence will fall' voice sounds a lot like Timothy Dalton, and he'd have plenty of reason to hate the Doctor. (and I'm going with him being the Dreamlord too, and the Doctor was just lying, because 'it's the evil timelord guy, and we're totally screwed' isn't something he's going to tell them).

Outlandish theory time: the whole Pandorica/ cracks thing was just a xanatos gambit to get the Doctor to reset the universe, because the Doctor remember Gallifrey, and I'm guessing that's been reset too.

I sometimes with the doctor had a bit more of that, actually. The lengths he goes to to avoid having to use weapons is ridiculous. He has absolutely no moral qualms about sacrificing entire planets if only it means he doesn't have to pick up a gun.

That seems to be a quality generalization almost bordering on Flanderization over the years. Earlier doctors used to prefer diplomatic solutions, occasionally resorting to picking up a gun (or more often, having the Brigadier, Sgt. Benton or someone else pick up a gun) when there was no other way out. But now he has gone MacGyver on us with his gun aversion.

Yeah. They are overdoing it. I recall a few episodes where he could have saved everything easily by just shooting an obvious bad guy and didn't. He even refuses to take up arms against the Dalek with the entire universe at stake. It gets annoying.

Well 9 had people take up arms when Daleks were invading the news/game show place didn't he?
Or maybe Jack just arranged it and the Doctor was against it. I don't remember the story well I just remember a woman shooting a Dalek eye and being pissed it wasn't dying.

11 picked up a gun in the Angels episode but in a nonviolent way. Then there were soldiers with guns on their side... But Angels aren't hurt by bullets so I guess it doesn't count.

10 might have been an idiot about it. One thing that annoyed me was not just killing the Sontarans. He knew what choice they'd make but he had to be all self-sacrificing. (and then whines when it was actually his time.)
I actually like 10 but still...

Humanity might be the Doctor's favourite species, but he does try to protect all of them. So preferring diplomacy to violence makes sense, protecting all sides if at all possible.

I'd love to see a recurring antagonist character who is like the Doctor, but with a different species. That protects some other planet the way he does earth. Who possibly has alien companions, if that isn't too near a parallel. While they'd team up against big threats, sometime in the future humanity and this species come into contact, so they can come up against each other all the time in that particular time, too.

Christopher Eccleston had no qualms about violence. He was about to go to town on the Dalek in the episode Dalek with an enormous gun. And he punched a person when he was getting out of gaol.

Regarding the "silence will fall" thing, did anyone else notice an overuse of the phrase "shut up" in this episode? It seemed to me like it was everywhere. Amy said it, pretty sure River said it. Even the Doctor said it, and it's not really something I can see him saying naturally (he's more of an "oh, be quiet" person).
Possible foreshadowing for next season?

In that episode, it does make sense though, as humanity doesn't really have any more claim to Earth than the Silurians do (which the doctor would know from previous Silurian encounters). The deal with the Silurians have always been that no-obvious-bad-guy/moral-ambiguity/who-are-the-real-monsters? sort of a thing.

I was half joking. I was 8 when I came to London to visit cousins. Their 2 year old loved it, so I ended up seeing it a bit. I went back to America and the teletubbies eventually got there a couple years later. It was really that the American narrator really grated against me and maybe that I was older. Then there was that guy who really hate the purple one and had to make it not about the children.


Still I kind of like that Doctor Who isn't an American thing. I might know more people who actually watch it but thats about it.
I know it isn't happening but would RTD try to make it canon if it did?

It'd probably be the same level of canon as the other Doctor Who movies, none of which starred any of the Doctors from the TV show.

The presence of an American actor playing the lead doesn't necessarily mean that it'd be an Americanization (especially given that the article in question was discredited). Personally I'd like to see a Doctor Who movie about the Time War.
