I don't see any resemblance between Tennant's Doctor and Smith's Doctor. I much prefer Smith to Tennant. Frankly, I always thought Tennant was too skinny and his voice too tinny to pull off the gravitas that my idea of the Doctor should have.

I'm with you. Tennant grew on me over time, but he remains my least-favorite modern Doctor. Still like him, but not as much as a lot of people seem to. I always thought he tried to have a lot more range than he actually had.

I love this.

The fact that some of you disagree with me shows passion for the show, which promotes not only discussion, but longevity!

Long live the Doctor - in whichever incarnation! (As long as they don't bring Sylvester McCoy back! )

I hated the guy who came after Tom Baker and the Doctors who wore the multicolored clown suits that came after him. I liked Eccleston, was "eh" on Tennant and really like Smith. Amy has become my least favorite companion of the reboot by far. Rory has become one of my favorites.

So, both Amy and Rory were partially converted to dalek. Are we to believe that that process is stopped or completely reversed upon leaving the asylum? Or will this come up again?

McCoy was okay. The stories were a jumbled mess. They tried to be so mysterious, there was no sense to a lot of it.

The only really bad doctor (McCann doesn't count, not enough body of work) was Colin Baker.

Anyway, a lot of tastes in Doctors has to do with when you started watching.

Spit coming from Tennants mouth every episode. I'm watching them again now. Very angry. Often dogmatic. They used Donna to make him more human again.

I suspect Amy will now (because of the changes) be able to have children and she and Rory will leave the Doctor to have a family.



Sorry if my memory is terrible. Wasn't Amy pregnant a while back? TARDIS kept showing her with and without a baby or something like that? how did that story get resolved?

Rory wasn't partially converted, he had his armband on the entire time. The one that Amy got came from the Doctor.

Yeah, that would definitely qualify as "terrible memory," since it was the key plot point of last season...

Either that, or Anubys suffered the biggest Zoom in all of time and space!

No, no, that's what I remember, actually. I don't remember how they explained the pregnancy so I dismissed my memory as false. Heck, I assumed this is why Rory and her were getting a divorce until she threw the "I can't have children" bomb. So I am just not sure what is going on anymore!

Amy was replaced on the TARDIS by a doppelganger while she was off in captivity pregnant.

Apparently, part of the fallout from Madame Kovarian (the eyepatch lady) messing with Amy's pregnancy was that Amy was left infertile. This was, as far as I know, the first time that was revealed to the viewer.

who is River Song's father?

Rory
She was conceived on the Tardis, which is why she's special.

OH! that's much better...all this time, I thought she was the Doctor's daughter; which made the incest angle a little too weird.

Whew!

Certain people's memories were wiped. Or perhaps they are Daleks and were wiped this week.

No. The Doctors daughter is still roaming the universe somewhere. We haven't seen her since she regenerated without changing at all.

River is the Doctor's wife. Not to be confused with his "wife" Idris who is actually the T.A.R.D.I.S.

I love putting insane stuff like that in writing.

Don't forget that The Doctor's Daughter was played by The Doctor's wife, who is The Doctor's daughter and mother of The Doctor's daughter.

ETA (explanation):
Spoiler:

The Doctor's Daughter was played by Georgia Moffett who later married David Tennant, the tenth Doctor.
Georgia Moffett is the daughter of Peter Moffett AKA Peter Davidson, the fifth Doctor.
Georgia Moffett is the mother of David Tennant's daughter.

I noticed on Amazon that there was a 3 minute prequel to this episode. (well not sure if it's a prequel but it was listed as episode zero for this season) Does anyone know anything about this? These used to be free, but Amazon wanted 99 cents for it so I did not purchase it. Not for a 3 minute skit. But if it's worth it then I will buy it. Is 3 minutes really worth it for 99 cents?

It's the message from the woman who claimed that her daughter had been kidnapped by the Daleks. Check again. It's free now.

Yeah, I thought they kept saying she was part time lord or something--is that because she was conceived on the Tardis, or do I have it wrong? (probably that)
