    Another enjoyable one with yet another powerfully emotional moment in it (or two). They really are firing on all cylinders.

    This is not a criticism, because I like it, but everything is so complex these days in the stories, not like the old days at all :)

    I loved this episode.

    The closed captioning exposed Idris as the Tardis before the Doctor figured it out.

    Dear BBC America: I do not give a flying **** about Graham Norton. Why must you crap all over my tv screen with an advertisement for his show?

    I don't think it really was supposed to be a mystery to the viewers.

    The TARDIS matrix gets deleted, and immediately Idris gets all glowy like Rose did when she looked into the heart of the TARDIS.

    If you don't make the connection at that point, when she then sees the Doctor and says "My thief", it should be obvious.

    Was it not obvious enough when the TARDIS powered down and then Idris was making the TARDIS sound?

    loved:
    "I've killed lots of Time Lords" / "I've killed them all."
    "I wanted to see the universe, so I stole a Time Lord and ran away. And you were the only one mad enough."
    "I didn't get you where you wanted to go; I got you where you needed to be"

    Between that and the fact that the TARDIS stole a Time Lord while the Time Lord thought he stole a TARDIS, it really didn't miss a beat in my book.

    I just loved, LOVED that she wanted to explore and this Doctor was the only one mad enough to take her on the the journey.

    Great episode....

    Only thing I was disappointed in was Idris not mentioning the other Mrs. Doctor (aka River Song), and her ability to correctly pilot the TARDIS. I think that would peeved Idris, a lot!

    You mean Sexy. :D

    (Idris was the human who was killed to [provide a body for Sexy, and I'm guessing Idris couldn't have cared less whether River could pilot the Tardis...)

    Although Idris is a remarkably good name for a Tardis.

    Perhaps coincidence, perhaps the human was called something different.
