I'd said to my flatmate that was going to happen at the start of this two-parter. Wish I'd posted my prediction now...
It's almost like this thread's faded into history.
That was the perfect example of why Steven Moffatt is SO much better tahn Russel T. Davies. Killing off a major character and with absolutely no sentimentality. There was no sacrifice, no redemption, nothing. The humans fucked up and not only did he die, but he vanished from Amy's memory. It was really quite awful.
I presume Amy and Rory seeing themselves at the beggining and the Doctor's speech about this point in time being able to go either way meant that it was entirely Ambrose's fault.
And then on top of that, the Doctor taking the shrapnel out of the crack in time!
Fucking fucking awesome! I have no idea where this is going to go and its SO MUCH FUN: after a tiny misstart, this is exciting, fun, scary, intellectually challenging (for a fun, Saturday night childrens programme obvz) and SO FUCKING GOOD.
Oh man, I don't even feel the need to just rave about how much i love Amy Pond after that.
I hope the duplicate Doctor theory is true also, I want Rory back :(
I like Rory and would love him to come back if it wasn't done in a shit anti-climactic way.
the Torchwood link explains it.
The Lizard Surgeon character started off as this creepy 'beginning disection' Mengele psycho who had already cut open one of the captives yet about ten minutes later the Doctor was telling him how much he loved him and his cute little child experiments.
And why was the Lizard Leader not more affected by the humans having killed one of the lizard soldiers? Instead he decided to stick with the humans and gas his own people!
Then the crack in time plot turns up with about two minutes to go. What exactly happened to the crack after they left? It just got bigger and swallowed up the lizard city? If the Doctor knows when the big explosion is going to be why isn't he trying to stop it instead of jauntily visiting Vincent Van Gogh next week?
I'm posting about a kid's TV show on the internet!
I thought that was why he thought it so important to track down Rory and bring him on the Tardis.
but the Doctor definitely said there was something specific about Amy and her wedding day that was relevant to the cracks in the wall and they seemed to trace to June 26 (?) 2010.
I'd kind of forgotten 'ti I too got a reminder on the internet earlier.
was an evil Mengele scientist! we just saw that he was a bit creepy through Amy Pond's eyes - but we never saw a dissection! it might have actually been totally painless and not actually cut them open. That other dude wasn't scarred for life and the Silurians seemed to have really advanced technology. Maybe the dissection wasn't anything unpleasant!!!
As for the crack in time - of course we don't know what happens with it! That's the secret they're saving for the last episode!!!
I never watched Doctor Who before this series, but this has been great. I wasn't sure about the dynamic of the Doctor/Amy/Rory triangle, so suspected something like this was coming. I wouldn't be surprised by the duplicate doctor idea - the way he appeared to Amy with his jacket after it had been taken in the Forest of the Dead is still the biggest clue. I can't wait to see where this crack in the universe plot goes...
I'm just not emotionally invested enough, I don't really care about Amy/Rory - whether this is because I was so/too emotionally invested in the DT era, I don't know - quite possibly.
Sad times, really :(
but only because I knew he wasn't in the next couple of episodes and they'd gone to such great lengths to set up the crack and how it made you forget things, plus the two of them on the hill and the significance of Rory taking the wedding ring back to the TARDIS.
Still pretty devestating though. I really liked Rory, and I do hope he'll be back in some form or other come series finale time. Will they really be able to go completely through with the first companion death since everybody's favourite Adric?
I'm just not sure why.
Rory dies and gets erased from history. Curse you Doctor Who! :(
I thought she was definitely going to have her brain boiled
whether it's the awful lines she gets or her delivery of them I'm not sure, but it really jars and sticks out.
Matt Smith is great though.
And far too nonchalant when faced with death. Hope she calms down a bit.
