I'm very excited! We've been watching the previous seasons to catch up. Did you read about the passing of the actress who played Sarah Jane Smith? So sad.

my kids and I were really saddened to hear about Elisabeth Sladen's death too :(

here is a nice article that was posted on Tuesday http://popwatch.ew.com/2011/04/19/elisabeth-sladen-an-appreciation-of-the-doctor-who-actress/

 

the actor who played the Brigadier died in February too - Nicholas Courtney

I was sorry to hear about Sarah Jane too.  I'm looking forward to the show tonight.  I'm not sure if the kids will tolerate us watching it when it first airs at 7, but if they don't we'll catch it at 10.

what did you all think?

 

I don't think Amy is pregnant - I think she was trying to remember about the Silents and all she could remember was that she felt nauseous....

 

Does this mean there won't be any new doctors? in Trial of a Time Lord they said the Valeyard was a future doctor... also he can regenerate 12x for a total of 13 regenerations (supposedly) - and this is only his 11th... so??

Yeah, I'm not convinced she's pregnant either. Hope it's not some alien possession.  lol.gif 

 

I thought it was a good episode.  Looking forward to Part II.  Sorry, I'm not as familiar with Doctor Who facts/figures as that, so I cant speak to how many lives he's got left.  I hope Matt Smith is around another couple of years.

Me too. It's one thing to be the first married companions but it's another for them to be pregnant/with infantwink1.gif.

I thought it strange Amy and River both had nausea. I thought perhaps they were related mother/daughter or even the same person.  I also thought River was the spaceman but maybe it was the doctor himself to "tie things up"

 

I didn't know he could regen 13 times.  He did lose 200 years but I don't think he regenned in that time.

 

I feel so bad for River.

I guessed Amy was pregnant before it was even hinted at. *smug* DH thought I was crazy.

 

I have a friend who firmly believes that River is a future Doctor. I don't; it would be too weird and incestuous. I tend towards the belief that she is indeed his wife, and that she killed him at some point in the future (for a very understandable reason). I don't get this whole "We're travelling in opposite directions in time" thing, though. They're TIME TRAVELLERS - why would their meetings be consistently "backwards", rather than randomly here-and-there? Plus, as we know from Silence in the Library, she's already met the version of the Doctor who didn't recognise her. Granted, Season 6 River doesn't know that yet, but we-the-audience already know that she actually coped with it pretty well, so presenting it as some unspeakably awful situation didn't really sit right with me.

 

What else? I found the Silents extremely creepy. Wasn't too sure about the ending - it seemed like a bit of a cop-out, honestly. Am slowly, reluctantly becoming OK with Matt Smith as the Doctor, even though he's no David Tennant. Amy's hair is gorgeous! And I liked... whatsisname... Badger from Firefly. The ex-FBI chap. He's cool.

LOL!  He's a cutie.  That's Mark Sheppard.  He was also a semi-regular in Battlestar Galactica. Actually apparently he's been in all kinds of good shows.

River was the one in the space suit. She said she had to kill the doctor at some point she just forgot by now. She also killed herself for the doctor when we first met her.  I think the key to being a time lord IS the tardis. I think it's somewhat organic and that's like their momma in a strange way. Therefore, River is part alien. The doctor is grossed out by humans and will never love one (incapable of it) and he was/is in love with River telling me she is definatly an alien. Remember he had to oh what was it.. create a humanoid version of himself for Billie in another dimmension to love since he  could never actually love a human no matter how much he cared for her.

 

Since meeting River I have always thought she was related to Emilia as in her daughter.

 

I also wonder whatever happened to his female clone doctor of himself.

 

I miss David :(  The doctors tend to grow on me. I hated David and now he's my favorite lol. And now this guy is growing on me.

What? He loved Rose. He was about to say so in Bad Wolf Bay when the TARDIS disappeared. His "human version" was obviously a better fit for her in terms of ageing, not regenerating etc, but the Doctor didn't create him deliberately as a way to palm Rose off...

Don't forget the Human Nature episodes in 1920s England.  David Tennant's Doctor becomes a teacher at a boys school, Martha is his maid, he transfers his Doctor-essence into a pocket watch and forgets he's the Doctor.  He then falls in love with the school nurse.  It was a really well done story, one of my favorites.

 

Creepy, creepy bad guy:

nonono.. it may not have been on purpose but he told rose countless times he could never love her in a way that she wanted. He would never ever ever be "into" her no matter how much he might want to be.. it just wasn't in his dna. He was incapable. I mean yes he looks human but he's not.

 

As to when he brain washed himself into thinking he was human post Rose..  yeah that didn't make sense. he shouldn't have fallen in love with that girl but they are making him more and more as an object for kissing. I suppose for ratings but that's not what he's about.

 

that's a cool chart someone made.. I will need to inspect this!

I considered that, but those lusty come-ons from River for the Doctor don't particularly make sense in that context.  

 

I hope they never give up that tension created by the Doctor's solitary, lonely existence.

That's excellent! I'll be sharing it with family.  I have to admit, I can't follow along and keep it straight in my head in the least.

When? I don't remember any of those occasions. He was definitely shy about confessing his love - so was she. They were both probably terrified at the prospect. But I think it's blindingly clear that he loved her, and he was about to say so at one point...
