    It was in response to someone believing they started in the fall. The response believed they would start at easter. I was supporting the belief that they would start at easter, as they have done in numerous seasons.

    If there is something definitive that has been announced that they don't start until the fall, that is news to me.

    I have a question this thread brought up. Going back to River's first episodes, how come everyone else who was saved in the library came back, but River can't?

    It's been awhile since I've watched it, but I believe it was because the others actually had their bodies digitized, so they could be restored. River's body was killed, so only her mind was digitized. Basically she didn't have a body to restore.

    Being right is easy if all you do is to make assertions and do not provide evidence. In the 50th anniversary the Doctor met Doctor Who.

    A couple of screen shots of closing credits. The have not been photo chopped, the Doctor lies, River Song lies, Moffat lies (or misdirects or whatever you want to call it).

    Didn't they? And Donna just missed connecting with her lover when they came back, because he had a stutter and couldn't call her name in time and got lost in the crowd, or something like that, right? I remember him (maybe everyone?) wearing all black. It's been a while, I could be confusing parts of various episodes.

    Doesn't Clara know the doctors name? Didn't she read it in a book in the Tardis library in one of her first eps? Because when she was at the crack, I was thinking "Oh no! She's going to say his name!"

    That version of events was erased. That was in "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS," and the Doctor erased those events when he sent the Big Friendly Button back to himself.

    Ah, I forgot about all those people. I thought you were talking about the other 5 or so who ended up in the mainframe with River.

    The closing credits read "The Doctor" starting with Peter Davison through the movie, and then again starting with David Tennant's first full episode (allegedly by his request, as he was a big PD fan [and still admires some of his work every day {wink wink nudge nudge say no more}]).

    Nope, some of us who remember that the new series for this show have almost always been around Easter knew what he meant.

    It wasn't a big leap.

    You're the one that didn't get it.

    You, along with a few others, don't get it either.
    What was said was
    If there were just one episode, it would be a special.
    It was not just about the new season starting at that time of year.

    "at least one" opens it for series and special, and history shows it has predominantly been when the new series has started.

    Before I read any of this post I just want to state that I HATE, HATE, HATE the new Doctor. I have feeling that I will not be the only one. Will predict that the Doctor will undergo another re-generation BEFORE the end of the new season. :p:p:p

    Curious about this. Hate him based on his 15 seconds as the Doctor so far? Or based upon his appearance/age? Or based upon the actor's other performances?

    and that's what I just said.
    The problem most people here are having is that they are choosing one over the other to debate w/o regard to the other possibility including you because your response to JohnB1000 neglects the possibility of a special by saying that the "at least one new episode" comment is about when the new season traditionally begins.

    and that's just neglecting the "special" possibility again.

    And there we have it. Some people have hated new doctors who later became their favorites.

    Based on his appearance/age. I think the majority of viewer prefer a younger actor playing the part of the Doctor. When BBC see the rating drop worldwide he will be replace. Now, if they change his appearance to a "James Bond" look with some sex appeal, he may work, but if they keep him as an old crazy looking man, redo re-generation now. In fact while viewing the interview with the actor during the live broadcast of "Day of the Doctor", I was thinking at the time they are going for a "James Bond" looking Doctor. Just my 2ยข. Would like to hear from female viewer of this show. Is the crazy old man look working for you?
