Doctor Dan Pours Over
DOCTOR WHO: COLD BLOOD!!

I am – Hercules!! “Doctor Dan” calls it “an enjoyable hour”:
DOCTOR WHO 5.9 – "Cold Blood" WRITER: Chris Chibnall DIRECTOR: Ashley Way GUEST CAST: Arthur Darvill, Neve McIntosh, Meerya Syal, Robert Pugh, Nia Roberts, Richard Hope, Stephen Moore, Alun Raglan & Samuel Davues [SPOILERS] A spirited conclusion to last week's episode, if less suspenseful and let down by bathetic moments and a trite voice-over/prologue device that gave everything a pretentious feel. "Cold Blood" was nevertheless an enjoyable hour, if something that strayed too often into predictability, and never found a way to become the action-packed instalment it could have been, choosing instead to focus on talks about the possibility of a Silurian/human allegiance... This was the kind of episode where certain moments or developments worked very well, but the bigger picture disappointed. I loved how companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) were treated in this episode, both engaged in stories above and below the surface away from The Doctor (Matt Smith), who was instead partnered with Nasreen (Meera Syal) to begin with. Amy picking a pocket to escape and creep around corridors with a giant gun showed her character at its assertive best, but the script then started to give her silly quips while showing her in a bad light (bored, head in her arms, at an important meeting to broker peace with the Silurians), or screech "Doctor!" every five minutes while pouting. I really do get the feeling Karen Gillan could be marvellous in this role (just watch "The Eleventh Hour" again), but most of the writers don't really know how to approach her. So she often becomes a bolshier version of Rose. The guest cast were much stronger this week, particularly Nia Roberst' character Ambrose, who wound up electrocuting Silurian prisoner Alaya (Neve McIntosh) to death because she was so desperate to get her son Elliot (Samuel Davies) back safely. A moment that ultimately destroyed any chance of peace between humans and Silurians, much to The Doctor's anger and disappointment. It's actually a lot more interesting when The Doctor's faith in humanity is let-down like this, and this episode actually gave him quite a few opportunities to look quite fragile – such as when he was racked with pain during a Silurian scan. It helps you engage with the story when even The Doctor's seen to be in pain or simply wrong about something, which doesn't happen all that often. The Eleventh Doctor's not to everyone's taste, but I appreciate how his presence doesn’t make you relax and know everything's going to be fine... Indeed, this episode ended on a surprising note of failure for The Doctor, with another "crack" appearing and distracting everyone long enough for Restak (Neve McIntosh again) to kill Rory with a fatal laser blast. Even worse, the crack's energy quickly snared Rory's body and essentially erased his entire timeline, leaving Amy oblivious to her fiancé every existing. Quite a tragic end for their relationship, and a failure only The Doctor is even conscious of and burdened with. Juicy stuff – actually a lot more interesting than the 40-minutes that preceded it. Overall, "Cold Blood" could have been a lot more exciting and creative in where its story headed, but the use of characters was a lot better than last week (even Meera Syal was more palatable), and there were enough interesting moments to keep you engaged. This was definitely an improvement on last week's tepid start, if unlikely to be an episode you'd want to ever revisit again. The Good The effects and set design were great. Unlike ABC's remake of V, the use of greenscreen wasn't extensive or prolonged enough for you to notice its falseness. A surprising death scene with Rory, although I'm expecting him to be resurrected in the finale – anyone else? The only annoyance is that the Amy/Rory relationship has run so false that his death didn't carry much emotional impact. Plus, he's already "died" a few episodes ago, so it didn't seem fresh. I enjoyed seeing peace ruined totally by the humans, as it's so often the aliens that are the villains and saboteurs in sci-fi. But here, it was clear that it's the humans who are to blame for everything. The Bad Amy. Or rather, how she's often written. There's a wonderful character in there, struggling to get out, but she's just being given irritating dialogue and reaction shots most of the time. A disappointing arc for the story, which felt like a Star Trek episode far too often and didn't give us the big action sequences that felt likely. Some horrible voice-over and a very unnecessary epilogue that actually ruined the story because you knew everything would pan out just fine. The Geeky Writer Chris Chibnall watched the Silurians' debut TV adventure and read the novelisation "Doctor Who And The Cave Monsters" as preparation for this two-part story. Stephen Moore, playing Eldane, is the voice of Marvin the Paranoid Android in the BBC radio adaptation of Douglas Adams' The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy. The Doctor mentions wanting celery, which is possibly a call-back to The Fifth Doctor's (Peter Davison) love of the vegetable – which he even pinned to his jacket. Rating: 3.5 / 5.0
“Kelvington” says most of it “flew by”:
When we last left the Doctor and company they were in some rather dire straights. Poor Amy was about to be vivisected, the Doctor and Nasreen had stumbled upon a Silurian's under city, and Rory and company were trying to figure out whom would kill their Silurians captive. I’ll admit, the first forty minutes of this episode FLEW by, and I mean fast, I couldn’t believe how quick and well done this one was. Yes, Amy picking the Silurian doctor’s pocket was a bit silly, and there were moments I thought could have been better. But the whole idea that they could settle this dispute with the Silurians with a meeting of the minds, and sit down and decide how the two species could live together was thrilling. And no not in a wow look at the chases and effects thrilling but in a well written, we are better than shooting at each other kind of way. Diplomacy at best is very dull, and we watch as Amy lays her head down on the table during the talks as a sign of how deadly dull it can be. And the use of a future voice over is often a lazy writing technique. But here it worked very well. You had the diplomat and the warriors. You knew at some point there had to be a clash, but about half way through the episode, even though the humans predictably killed their Silurian captive, I thought, maybe, just maybe they would hash this out with words. Of course "Doctor Who" is more about running and excitement, so the ending was going to involve a "shit load" of Silurians and a lot of running and people getting shot at. And will someone please tell me that kid's dad didn't say "Shit load"? Cause he didn't say shite, I'll have to use the close captions to know for sure. The ending doesn't disappoint the mutating grandfather stays below with his new love, and the Silurians go back to sleep for a thousand years and wait for a time when ape-kind is more ready for them to join the planet. And it all seems to wrap up very nicely. Except for the "crack" the crack in time that appears over and over, let me tell you, this better pay off big, because if it doesn't then I will not be happy. This time the crack is bigger than before and it consumes a fallen companion. The Doctor reaches into the crack and pull out a bit of what appears to be his future. Setting up these kind of REALLY BIG jolts requires a damn huge payoff. And not a "Let's hit the fracking reset button payoff", but a real, full of consequences payoff. Now if anyone can pull it off it's Moffat, but damn he's got his work cut out for himself here. The episode over all was great, and if you accept it as just being a romp, and not nitpick it to death, like we did with the "LOST" finale, you can really enjoy it for what it was. A well written, well edited and directed episode of "Doctor Who" that makes for the perfect companion piece from last week's show. While I can't say it was perfect, it was really damn close. Cut out the, what we all know is a temporary death, and the crack nonsense and it could easily have stood as two of the best episodes ever. Just my 2¢
“Gabba-UK” calls it “a bit special”:
Hi Herc, This is going to be a difficult and short one to write. Not that I was disappointed by Chris Chibnall second writing stint for this series but because there were two real 'didn't see that one coming' moments that frankly knocks you for six while still sat on your chair. And I REALLY don't want to spoil the surprise. Moffat has some real balls as a show runner it has to be said. To do what they have at the end of this episode and let it fly is courageous to say the least. Though I suspect there is a way to reverse what has happened/will happen/might happen.... So after my favourite episode of Nu-Who season 5, The Hungry Earth, Chibnall has to make good on the escalating sense of menace and threat he built up last week to such dramatic effect. Did he accomplish it? Even without the two 'didn't see that one coming' moments I would have to say yes. Starting pretty much from where we last left them, The Doctor and Nasreen are captured while exploring the Silurian city but not before The Doctor determines that the majority of the Silurians must still be asleep. Their capture interrupts the dissection of Amy. Considering the dissection of Mo involved his top being undone I can't have been the only male in the audience upset by the interruption but I digress. Amy, continuing a tradition of life skills suspiciously above those of a kissogram girl, effects both hers and Mo's escape and stumbles upon Mo's son Elliot, asleep, unharmed and beyond rescue for the moment. Back on the surface Rory is keeping it together and trying to prevent Tony and Ambrose from killing Alaya. As we know from Alaya's own lips last week, he isn't successful in this task. But Tony isn't dying from the weak CGI sting he received last week, something else is happening to him as a result of human evolution since the Silurians last walked the Earths surface. The Doctor has contrived through his own brilliance and a fair bit of luck to broker peace talks between the Human and Silurian but the murder of Alaya could be problematic and her sister, Restac, commander of the Silurian armed forces is understandably pissed off about it..... This was a very successful episode all in all. There were genuine moments of tension in the chasing of the humans through the alien city. The acting was of a high standard, the CGI matt paintings was even better than last weeks and even the Silurian sting made a much better looking appearance. But it's the emotional one-two punch of those two moments that make this episode a bit special. Adric is going to be my one and only clue to one of them and the other one is FAR too cool to ruin. And why I don't want to give anything much away if I can help it. My own personal favourite moment was when Stephen Moore, the original and best (sorry Alan Rickman but he just is) voice of Marvin, The Paranoid Android turned up as Eldane, the leader of the Silurians. Next week we have the Richard Curtis (yes that Richard Curtis) penned Vincent and the Doctor with Bill Nighy and Tony Curran as Vincent Van Gogh. Cool.
“V’Shael” calls it “the stuff”:
Hi Herc, Talkbacker V'Shael here with a spoiler free review of tonights Doctor Who, rushed out to you because you were so quick off the mark last week. I was taken to task because of sliding into spoiler territory in a previous Who talkback, so this one is genuinely spoiler free to the final full stop. Begin. This. This is the stuff. This is why I love the new show and Matt Smith. This is why I am a life long Doctor Who fan. I've seen every Sea Devils story since their introduction in the Pertwee era. And up until now, every single story has ended in savage failure. Because the Doctor (like me) knows that the Silurians/Eocenes have good reason and just cause. And if he could only get both species, humans and "homo reptilia" to put aside their differences, the combined would be greater than the sum of their parts. It's the closest thing we have to a long running story/theme in Doctor Who. Fuck the Daleks and their idiotic Time War. This theme, of the Doctors desire to put these two species together into sharing the same planet, has been a constant and recurring thorn in the characters side, every time the species meet. Up until now, the best Silurians story, for me, (even with the shitty Myrka) was Peter Davisons, which ended with the Doctor tragically poisoning the Silurians and saying regretfully "There should have been another way." Until now. Captain Jack used to say in Torchwood, that the 21st century was when everything changed. And this was definitely playing in my mind as the events unfolded on the screen. For the first time in those 30 years or so of watching Silurian stories, I felt hope. Because even though they were never really the "bad" guys, I always knew the show could never diverge from reality so much as to have them share our oceans with us. And you can't feel real fear and disappointment unless you have also felt that hope of success. That somehow, it would actually work this time. I think Matt Smith was channelling my hope and expectations at some point. Or at least, his portrayal of the Doctor here really mirrored my own inner doctor. The one that sits in my head (and I think all of our heads) and quietly demands that we be the best that we can be. Doctor Who has always been the best when the Doctor challenges humans to be better than they know, even if they invariably disappoint him. Because he always asks again. He never gives up hope that somehow the humans will be better this time. I love it. I love it so so much. I've always empathised with the Silurians. And an episode like this really hit me hard in my geeky erogenous zone. Not to get all spoilery now, but we also see some incredible plot developments in the season arc. Something really surprising and unexpected happens. (I suspect this will be spoiled by everyone) Something very very cool happens. If I had one slight problem with the episode, it would be the use of the sonic screwdriver. You'll see. Oh, and some of the green screen work is a little cheap looking. Now a brief, non spoiler tangent - (Not related to the story) I always liked the Silurians. Possibly because of my left-leaning sensibilities (and the fact that I'm Irish) meant I've always had a soft spot for displaced cultures, whether they are Native Americans, the Jews of yesteryear, or the Palestinians of today, etc. You can imagine the reverse situation very easily. Suppose the solar flares of the 29th century sterilise the surface. Humanity builds massive space arks and country-starships, and heads out to the stars. Then at some point, they return to earth, and find a thriving cockroach civilisation. The roaches are warlike, pollute the environment, not as technologically advanced as the humans, and are slowly destroying everything about Earth that humans like or had a use for. What do you think we'd do? And what if some lone space god who LOOKED like a cockroach, but really wasn't, and was WAY more advanced than us, said "Look, it's their planet now. Learn to share or leave them be." Would we listen? Would we say "Fuck you, you cockroach wannabe, you're hardly unbiased what with looking just like them." Would we try to bring some massive amounts of industrial bug cleaner to our green and pleasant land?

    My Take

    by 2LeggedFreak

    Well here we are with the second part to the Hungry Earth and the Doctors adventures with a new version of the old enemy, the Silurians.<br /><br />I wasn't too thrilled with The Hungry Earth although my opinion improved somewhat with a re-watch. I still feel the performances were a bit off and the ancillliary characters lacked any depth. However, onwards and upwards , how did Cold Blood round things off ? <br /><br /><br />I'd rate it at about a 7 out of 10:<br /><br />Matt Smith was on top form as the judgemental alien trying to bring it all together : There was a bit too much of him being ineffectual in the great scheme of things though. It works within the context of this story but its becoming symbolic of the season. The Doctor needs to show why he is the Doctor.<br /><br />The ancilliary characters were all hugely better. I could believe in each of them and their motivations and they were a lot more fleshed out.<br /><br />The scenery down below put a big grin on my face. Yep, its 21st century effects, but it was resonant of the Pertwee/Baker .....era--loved it.<br /><br />We were promised a game changing moment in human history though and then somewhat robbed of it in the later stages of the programme. Its promised to be there in a 1000 years time but I await a future episode to see if they hold to their promise. In this programme it felt like an anti-climax.<br /><br />Thought the only false note was Amy negotiating the planet sharing aspects..didn't like that. And hey, I am starting to side with the folk who object to her snarky comments. They are starting to feel somewhat forced. I still do like the Amy character though, just finding her irritating at the wrong times.<br /><br />The Rory piece was okay..should have been poignant but you know, I still couldn't bring myself to care overly much for Rory. I also don't think the writers have got the jist of the crack in time. If Rory doesn't exist anymore ever then he wasn't there 10 minutes ago to take a bullet meant for the Doctor. <br /><br />All in all a somewhat talky and mature episode that probably reflects Chibnalls Torchwood history. It was a good episode but didn't quite have the courage of its own convictions.<br /><br />Nice try though.

    The Doctor takes a bite of celery in Castrovalva and enjoys it, so he both likes to eat it, and it serves to detect gasses that he's allergic to in the praxsis range.<p> Given V'Shael's comments, there'"Warriors of the Deep"). And V'Shael likes that one. So he might be misremembering something, unless he's counting the novels and whatever audio releases there have been.

    Speaking of temporal paradoxes...

    by Gislef_crow

    What's the point of the Doctor negotiating between the humans and the Silurians/Eocenes/Sea Devils/"Earth Reptiles"? He knows how it works out. If the Virgin novels are to be believed, they're all reconciled and take the name "Earth Reptiles."<p> Or if you don't accept the novels, then things never get better. But either way... it's not like the Silurians are alien invaders or time travels. How things work out between them and humans are presumably part of the web of history.<p> Either the Doctor knows how things work out and there's no point in intervening until history says things work out. Or things don't work out, and he's making a major alteration in the timeline.

    Sorry, my comments got scrambled above. There's only been one Sea Devil aired story since the Pertwee Era, "Warriors of the Deep." So it's not clear what he means when all of the stories since then have been savage failures. There's been, well, two of them. And "The Sea Devils" didn't really end in failure. More that the Master sabotaged things.

    Best ep since flesh and stone

    by Candy ass monkey suit

    The last 2 weeks of Doctor Who has left me a little cold,not bad, just very meh..you could say it's a mid season slump. Fortunately things get back on track with tonights episode. fantastic production values throught,great performances and a thrilling ending i'm sure the moff wrote himself after chibnall had delivered his script!, made for one hell of an ep. I must admit i didnt see Rory's death coming but when it happened i thought that cara from legend of the seeker was gonna breeze on in and give good ole rory the breath of life and he'd be on his way again or something similar in sci fi terms!..but nope he gone and forgotton too due to the crack in time. I'm sure this was ushered into the season arc due to the fact that moff couldn't have had the wedding storyline hanging around for a couple of seasons or so off he went. Unlike Doctor Dan i don't think Rory will make it back but maybe Amy will remember him once the crack in time stuff has been solved in Ep 13. Not perfect but a pretty thrilling episode 8.5/10

  • May 29, 2010, 6:16 p.m. CST

    pretty disappointing

    by FrodoFraggins

    I laughed when rory dove to save the doctor, not sure why but it's probably because it's so cliche.<br><br> I won't be surprised if the end of the season has the Doctor bring back the "erased" people. And so I'm not really buying rory's death yet.

    It should also shut up some of the critics who kept on whining about characters not dying on screen since Moffat took over. They did justice to the Silurians. But man, what a weak species if a stun gun can kill them.

    by gotilk

    read. I really mean it. But the Amy whining is getting a little old and is starting to seem baseless and slightly bitter in an odd way. Not as harsh, thankfully as the outright hatred of Donna Noble at first. But I just am not feeling the concerns anymore. But I do agree that Rory will be back. I was just warming to the character though. Please, please don't pull a Mickey and have him return as a bad-ass. It worked then, but probably will not again. No chance of that though. Right? I hope not. No. No.

    Donna Noble was terrible

    by deathraycharles

    due in no small part to RTD's steady decline as a show runner and writer. She had all of about 3 serviceable episodes, and two of them were the work of Moffat.

    Nice Conclusion

    by Shub-Wankalot

    The Doctor proves to be infallible, humanity displays its ugly head, sacrifice of one's life never goes out of style (salutes Rory), with an existential wipe-out being the latest rave (thanks, crack in time), and hibernation is so cool for another thousand years (thanks, humanity.) Oh yeah, no more Amy/ Rory flatline faux passion (Amy taking back her righteous independence, yeah.) Nothing amiss I hope...well, then, onto the next wonderful episode.

    Terrible episode,the whole series 5 is a mediocrity so far.

    by ominus

    When you have watched Star Trek episodes which have dealt with the subject of two races trying to found common ground in order to live peaceful together,with the most respectful and intelligent way,then Doctor Who episodes like the last one are laughable at least.<br /><p>I dont care if the show is aimed mainly at kids.This is a cheap excuse and not a reason.Not only kids are intelligent enough to understand in a deeper manner complex subjects like the one that was explored in yesterday's episode thus deserving a better treatment from the producers of the series who only seem them as consumers of their merchandise, but also lets not forget that the old schoold Doctor Who series had more well-crafted and more well-written stories which treated better such subjects than the nu-Who series has done until now.<br /><p>I dont care if RTD was better or worse creator than Moffat,or Matt Smith is not a very good doctor or that his companion is annoying or whorish because she wears miniskits.I dont care about such trivia things.What i care about is good writing,its the good writing which will make the companion less annoying or the doctor more awesome,its the good writing which will make the episode more entertaining and more thought provoking,its the writing that will make me like the god damn story i am watching.nothing else matters more than good writing.and unfortunately good writing,with a few exceptions,is almost absent in the whole 5 seasons of the new Doctor Who.<br /><p>and this come from someone who really loves Doctor Who and is happy that the series has been resurrected.but frankly in no way i can accept episodes like the yesterday one,as good intelligent and emotional entertainment.IT SUCKED.

  • was going to die in this episode,since his credits dont reappear again until the 2-part finale of the season.I think someone already spoiled that in the last week's talkback or in the io9.com talkback,dont remember where exactly.<br /><p>So expect his resurrection then.

    Australia

    by riggs_riggs_hey_riggs_where_are_you_riggs_riggs

    While I'm enjoying the series, I had to laugh at the Brits attempt to support reconciliation while claiming the Australian Outback is "uninhabited". The outback contains a huge amount of Aboriginal communities and has done for tens of thousands of years. The assumption that it's just "land for the taking" must be deep inside Brit DNA. The last time they made this assumption they all but wiped the Aboriginal people out.

    damned good episode

    by loonatic

    feels aa bit star trek, only better. the resolution felt "real" not just something pat or preachy.. as for the complaints about the lack of chemistry between Rory and Amy, that's the point. their feelings obviously weren't mutual. his fate is all the more poignant as Amy called him an idiot for running in the wrong direction just before he sacrificed himself ...

    Explanation of The Ring

    by Rocklover79

    Remmeber in Flesh and Stone when the soldier gave Amy the comm device before he walked into the light? He ceased to exist when he left her, but she still had the radio. That's probably how they'll explain the ring. Physical possessions of a Crack victim do not disappear when in the possession of another person.

    So now we know what caused the crack... And the finale, I thought we've already assumed, involves some back-and-forth in time trickery. There Might not be resurrection, only Rory's presence in the past. I'm finding I'd (surprisingly) miss Rory, and I'm curious if the Doctor would bring him back... but if he would, he'd almost necessarily dump Amy and him immediately back home to insure their future safety.

    Lizard Warrior kills by a stun-gun??? Weak.

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    I kept expecting her to wake up. Guess she was all talk, with her threatening to "kill all apes" and laughing at the opportunity to see all of the humans die.<p>Rory's death was a little surprising, but really NOT, since Amy was clearly out of his league and he was basically an annoying White version of "Mickey". Annoying boyfriend of hot companion = dead weight on Doctor Who. To add insult to injury, they even had Amy forget he even existed! Perfect metaphor for hot chicks and geeks.<p>We'll see what it all leads up to, even though we know the Doctor will survive it all. I'd give this episode 6/10. Kinda okay, but not great.

    The worst episode

    by lonniebeale

    since the series came back. Nothing really happened. I hated the new Silurians (come to think of it, I hated the old Silurians). Just terrible!

  • May 30, 2010, 4:05 a.m. CST

    Eh?

    by my liege

    "if something that strayed too often into predictability, and never found a way to become the action-packed instalment it could have been, choosing instead to focus on talks about the possibility of a Silurian/human allegiance." How is NOT becoming an action-packed installment predictable? Surely the reverse is true.

  • May 30, 2010, 5 a.m. CST

    To be fair

    by 2LeggedFreak

    There was an air of predictability in knowing that, at the end of the day, there would be no planet sharing.<br /><br />We were sort of conned by the intro (a direct rip of Roses' "The Day I die") that tried to convince us otherwise,but was anybody really surprised by what happened?

  • May 30, 2010, 5:01 a.m. CST

    yeah, just rubbish

    by prbt

    I'm sorry, but I think Chibnall is one of the worst writers working today. His Torchwood stories were execrable. Basically, this two-parter was a blatant rehash of 3 Pertwee stories, but done very boringly.

    And so it starts....

    by 2LeggedFreak

    I have to say that I am starting to get a little underwhelmed again with this season.<br /><br />I think my love of Doctor Who and the fact that I find the two leads to be very good, is keeping me on the positive side of the fence at the moment but:<br /><br />1) Yep we get the Doctor is a more fragile and fallible version. But to stop him being an ineffectual tosser lets see him seriously kick ass .As the Fonz rightly points out, you've got to take action every now and then to maintain your reputation.<br /><br />(One glaringly obvious thing for instance in the encounter with the angels would have been to have the Doctor turn the gravity off)<br /><br />2) The writing is serving both characters poorly. The Doctor is just about okay (but see point one) but Amy is getting grating. She's like Xander Harris with a sugar rush...cut it out.<br /><br />3) There's a constant rehash of little tricks and dynamics that have been seen time and again in new Who e.g the intro to this episode. The "I scare monsters" quip. They had 4 specials last year to rest the show and come back fresh..its got stale again very quickly even with exciting new acting talent on board. I just hope this is first season doldrums and things pick up next year.

    by dj_bollocks

    Yeah it was a little preachy at times, a bit predictable until the end but it was good fun telly. <p> You know whilst I'm not 100% embracing Matt Smith I can't help feeling that with these scripts Tennant would have absolutely cemented his position as best Doctor ever - the sort of performance that the Moff got out of him in Blink... I guess we'll never know... <p> Clearly Rory will return always a thrill to say a significant character die and to be honest I don't know if I could have handled his bumbling for another 4 episodes. Van Gogh looks intruiging but it could be a little dry.

  • May 30, 2010, 5:34 a.m. CST

    So far this season...not so good.

    by RobinP

    It seems to be missing something. Matt Smith as the Doctor, I have no complaints about, Amy Pond seems under developed as a character and as for Rory - he just seems to be a cardboard cutout. The writing seems substandard this season as well, overall - there's very little emotional investment in the characters who seem to be just going through the motions. When Rory "died" last night, I couldn't have cared less. When Rose was sucked into the void of the alternate universe, THAT was huge, when Donna realised her potential and then had to go back to being a dull ignorant self absorbed bitch of a woman, in order to save her life - THAT had emotional resonance because it was tragic, but that kind of characterisation is sadly missing this season, and the show really needs it. I'm hoping that the next few weeks round everything up and give us a satisfying conclusion that'll perhaps give a new perspective on what's been a tepid season so far. Oh, and where are the Cybermen? I thought they were supposed to be back this season?

    by Candy ass monkey suit

    I hope Rory doesnt come back coz that would ruin his death scene making it completely redundant and meaningless. If this is true then who doesnt have real jeopardy and makes deaths seem like a cartoon. I hope Rory stays dead and the scars stay with the dr for a longtime.

    by optimus122

    Very funny and now I am sporting a woody heh. I think the crowd is split on Moff these days. I know I am, I see ZERO difference in the quality of the show that he is delivering as compared to the RTD years and it seems I am not alone in that thought. Love the show though, I did when RTD ran it and I do now as well.

  • May 30, 2010, 6:55 a.m. CST

    I dont think the resurrection thing cheapens death argument work

    by spike fan

    when you think that the Doc regenerates when he dies. The Master did not even regenerate one time and still came back, While Davros seems to magicaly survive everything under the sun as do the Daleks. My problem is that the Rory charachter is bland and I will not care if he does come back specially since Amy seemed to treat him like crap when he was around.### As for Amy herself its the Mary-Sue complex rearing its head again as shown in this episode with her seeming to be able to do almost everything from pickpockting while strapped to a table to negotiating for the human species and while I like Karen Gillan she does not to broaden her range from wide eyed stare. Though to be fair she was not helped by the shitty writing in this episode. OTOH Matt Smith is terrific as the Doctor and blows both Tennant and Eccleston away in JMO. What I think the series is missing in JMO is a villian like the Master or Davros who can match wits with the Doctor and make it personal for him as it is there basicaly facing one monster from the next but as there is no emotional connection where they know the Doctor and he knows them it can be a bit lifeless.

    by Smashing

    Really now sort it out, Doctor Who changed upon its return in 2005, now Moffat has re-set the show back into the creaking, cheap looking thing it was before it died, to me its like tuning in for season 5 of TNG and getting TOS again, it doesn't work as the show and audience moved on, now were expected to be grateful for a step backwards into fairy tale land? sheesh. <p>The show isn't as good under Moffat as it was under RTD, flat out fact. I'm just not hooked or feeling it, it looks washed out and cheap, where is the colour of the past seasons? why make it look like Potter or Twilight? there rubbish too.

    Yes I guess if she wasn't hot I would be more bothered with the wide eyed stare and her being almost as capable as the DR. But damn she is hot with really long long long long long long legs. I think picking that doctors pocket wasn't that difficult, heck he didn't seem like the sharpest tack even though he was a scientest. Why wouldn't she go for it considering she was about to be cut into like a frog in a HS science class. Also you can tell when they she was negotiating that she felt out of place at that table. I mean heck the DR used her as a representative of our race, I think she is a fine person for the job. Not any better or worse then you or I. Even those lizards wanted to pound the crap out of her.

    by spud mcspud

    Not colourful enough for you? What, you DIDN'T like the Renault Megane iDaleks in fetching pastel colours??<P> Matt Smith is easily the best Doctor since Tom Baker. Problem is, the writing isn't up to the level of his performance, and - this I WILL concede - Moff hasn't got the hang of writing interesting background characters the way RTD did. And Amy Pond remains woefully badly written. That said, nothing in this season has gone anywhere near the depths of stupidity we witnessed when Dobby the Time Elf saved the world in LAST OF THE TIME LORDS. And at least we're not witnessing plotting as woefully incompetent as the climax of THE END OF TIME Pt2. That finale makes the LOST finale look like LORD OF THE RINGS.<P> Moff's got his faults, but at least he can write a reasonably coherent episode. RTD could keep a narrative straight if his life depended on it.<P> As for cheap looking... you DID see the Silurian subterranean city, didn't you? The Spitfires in space sequence? And you think that's "cheap-looking"??<P> If it's a choice between primary coloured dumb shit or muted-palette intelligent writing, I'll take the POTTER palette, cheers... :D

This is the guy that gave up working with Steven Speilberg to work on a show he'd wanted to work on since a kid.

    My take on COLD BLOOD...

    by spud mcspud

    I liked it - but the pacing was off with the two eps - you could have condensed HUNGRY EARTH, and ended it part way into COLD BLOOD, where the Silurians were going to execute the humans. But that's just me...<P> Pacing problems aside, I LOVED that an obvious set-up to an invasion storyline was then sidelined in favour of negotitations and Silurian in-fighting. RTD would have had a big bombastic Act III planned, that ended with a Sonic Ex Machina and the death of all the Silurians - Chibnall (for once) gave a tired concept (two races at war for the planet) a different twist. I would have done without the voice-over - it kind of hinted at the resoilution, when it would have been better not being referred to - but I loved that Nasreen and Tony didn't die, but would be awoken a thousand years hence, and the Doctor telling the humans to seed the advance notice of a Silurian resurgence a thousand years in the future was BRILLIANT (as was Elliot being the only one who understood where the Doctor was coming from). The sequences in the Silurian city were interesting - always nice to get an insight into how these societies work, and it's even better to have an ending where the civilisation actually gets to live - and the Silurians weren't exactly evil, which is also good to see. Solid storytelling all round, and kudos to Chibnall, who for so long has been the main perpetrator of the most pointless and trite episodes of TORCHWOOD, but who actually gave Matt Smith's Doctor a decent, meaty story to get into. The shades-of-grey moral complexity in the episode was great, refreshing for this season of WHO (first really interesting episode morally in this season, I think) which has so often been stories going nowhere, or to some limp resolution. Matt Smith continues to be awesome, and Karen Gillan continues to be crap - how do you go from being about to be shot to saying to Rory "Just keeping you on your toes!" thirty seconds later? SHIT WRITING!! I don't care how spunky and feisty a heroine is supposed to be, no WAY would Amy be so used to jeopardy by now that she'd flippantly say that after being about to be shot by a pissed off lizard chick. Godawful Companion writing aside, Rory was actually getting a bit assertive this episode - still a stuttering twat, but one that could conceivably do a Mickey and be born-again hard at some point, and his fate gave an agreeably sharp sting to the more-or-less peaceful resolution.<P> And the bit with the crack... they'd better not fuck with the TARDIS! No redesigns, no final destructions - it's the TARDIS! It'd be like destroying the Millennium Falcon! DO NOT DESTROY THE TARDIS, MOFFAT!!<P> So, Spud's opinion? A solid 8 out of 10. Still no sign of "Geronimo!" though, and I liked that catchphrase, too. Next week does look a bit "meh", but if it gives us more hints on this crack-silence-expliding-TARDIS mystery, then bring it on. Anything's better than still steaming over that shitty LOST finale, which I saw last night for the third time and still fucking hate. Moff, bring this season of WHO home - make us proud!!<P> Shout out to axcel1, the gentleman of the WHO talkbacks - enjoy the Van Gogh episode next week, I already know you will!!! ;D

    Another enjoyable ep for me

    by The Handsome 12th Doctor

    It veered a bit towards Star Trek:Next Generation in places, but managed to retain little things that kept it as Who. Amy's fed-up gesture during the negotiation was a fine non-Trek thing to do.<br><br>I think it's becoming more and more clear that this is a very season-y season. That when viewed as a whole it could become more than the sum of its parts. And I'm not saying that's necessarily a good thing. Not everyone is as avid a watcher as me (or us). Some people dip in and out of it and they might not understand what's going on with the crack and stuff. Although I think the show does a decent job of showing clips from earlier eps to explain as best it can.<br><br>But for me personally it is good. Doctor is good. Episodes are good. And if the finale is able to expand on and clarify stuff we've seen so far, and do it in an entertaining way, then that'd be ruddy marvellous.

    So we are easily watching the best season of Dr Who...

    by FishEatingJoe

    produced and all I hear people do is complain. Does anyone really want to go back to the RTD days when every character was the same and not one story made sense? I'll take the thin, varying characters of Moffat's verse if the stories continue to make sense and hold actual entertainment value. That Moffat and his writers uses their one off characters as tools to tell his story is not a flaw. It is certainly a vast improvement over the same overwrought characters with no actual depth that RTD pushed down the audiences throat every week. And as for Amy, Karen Gillan is both talented and incredibly hot. It is true that Moffat seems to be the only one capable of writing her to anywhere near her potential, but how anyone can be annoyed by here mere presence is bizarre.

  • May 30, 2010, 9:31 a.m. CST

    Geronimo?

    by clupula

    People really wanted to hear that? Seriously? I was embarrassed every time Matt Smith would yell that and I was very much hoping, before the season began, that it was something he was only going to yell in one or two episodes. I am soooooooooo glad that are not doing that. When Tennant said, "Allonsy," it just flowed. I love Smith's Doctor, but in the first episode and second episodes, I cringed when he did the "Geronimo" thing.<BR><BR>On the other hand, people are still complaining about Amy Pond, so different strokes, I guess. I mean, to complain about the "keeping you on your toes" thing. You've never been in a situation where something happened that could've killed you or frightened the shit out of you, and then the next second, you make a joke? I know I've done that. I certainly know others who've done that. It's called relieving tension. It's a natural human response to a close call.

    This season is easily the most consistent in its quality since the first of the new series. As much as I have liked both Eccleston and Tennant, Smith brings a sense of unpredictability and "alien-ness" to the role that is reminiscent of what made Tom Baker my favorite. I really hope he stays for a good long while and not simply because we're rapidly running out of regenerations. That said, I totally agree with some folks that this episode had issues. "The Hungry Earth" was a taut, suspenseful, and creepy episode. When it was over, I was itching to see how it played out. "Cold Blood" just didn't deliver the pay-off that it needed to. There was a lot of running around in tunnels followed by a plotline about failed interspecies negotiations. It was almost like George Lucas wrote it. Amy, especially, was written as an utter twit for most of the episode. I like Karen Gillan. Yes, she's stunningly gorgeous, but she also has really good comic timing and, I think, has the potential to be a great companion for The Doctor. The writers need to give her good material, though. I'm reminded of Martha, who I didn't care for, but also felt wasn't really given anything substantial by the writers off of which to play. I really like Amy Pond. There is the core of a good character there. They just need to give her better dialogue. As for Rory's death, I was taken sort of by surprise, not that it happened, but that it did so in such an ineffective manner. The direction in this episode was sloppy. A good director could have really made that a heartbreaking event. In this case, the pacing was off, the camerawork was sterile, and the music was, well, dull. I know that all of those things are the end results of a number of folks, but a good Director can guide and inspire the rest of the creative staff. Ultimately, I suppose it falls on Moffatt's shoulders that there didn't seem to be a cohesion to this episode. Who can say why things didn't work this week. They just didn't. That said, this is the only episode this season that I felt was resting on its laurels. That's still a pretty damned good record. It will be interesting to see if Moffatt can pull off a satisfying season-ender without falling back on a nonsensical deus ex machina like RTD always seemed to do. The whole "Bad Wolf" thing still doesn't make sense to me.

    New Who

    by uberGribbler

    I'm loving the new series and found the stories to be more adult , both in the way they're told and presented on screen. Smith is quickly becoming one of my favourite docs too. My only gripes are that I'm feeling that some of the stories are a little rushed and the is affecting the emotional impact of some stories. Rorys death should have and could have had much more of a jarring effect. I love smiths temper tantrums but one or two more emotional, quieter scenes would help. As far as Amy goes, lots of potential, just a few less retorts and comebacks. Series overall, excellent, just waiting for an episode with some real emotional payoff

    by axcel1

    for the compliment, "the gentleman of the WHO talkbacks", I like that. And, I agree with 99% of what you said. I like Amy, but, ok, maybe the writers should try harder to understand her character. I am surprised no one has complained about a certain scene that happened right before the crack in time. I don't want to be say exactly what it is so as I don't give anyone something else to complain about. One question about next week's episode, the actor who is playing Vincent, the red-haired gentlemen, I know I've seen him somewhere before, but, I can't remember where. What other film work (TV or movies) has he done? Can anyone help a fellow Who fan out?

  • May 30, 2010, 10:42 a.m. CST

    really enjoying this season

    by satansteve

    The opener was excellent, Beast was a good 'first trip' and I even enjoyed the Dalek episode. Smith has been nothing short of excellent and I don't even mind Amy. Haven't seen anything that really makes me dislike her. That said, I wasn't such a fan of last week's episode. I don't know why, it just wasn't 'there' for me but this weeks was a marked improvement. I liked Rory, so seeing him go out like that was a bit of a surprise and I can't remember the last time we saw an actual companion to the Doc really die, making the Doc fail like he rarely does. Can't wait for the remaining episodes, although I am slightly worried about the episode with James 'One Character' Corden. If he just shows up as Smithy I don't think I'll be able to control my rage. This season rules, I've loved (nearly) every minute of it.

  • Geronimo? Yes, some people miss hearing the Doctor say it. Ok, maybe just me and spud mcspud so far, but, still, we are some people. You may be right about it only being said the first three episodes Smith was in, (The End Of Time Part 2, The Elventh Hour, and The Beast Below), but, we can only he says it again before the end of the series (season).

    by Ciderman

    I love the way that The Doctor is played as an alien this time, instead of the usual eccentric human, Matt Smith makes it work, he simply isn't thinking like us, he is an ET with attitude and a time travelling blue box, brilliant. Nice that he always seems to mention it being bigger on the inside but none of visitors to the Tardis say it!

    That's sad to hear. But feel good about the fact that they can only reach so far and most of the torrent sites are outside of Ireland. Most? Oops. I meant all. And then there's Usenet. For the most part untouchable. Ireland can pretend they're doing something and if that makes them feel good for a while, more power to them. It's just that.. well.. they will have no impact whatsoever. And I cannot imagine they would really want to. Part of why there was so much wordlwide interest in new Who and BSG was because of bittorrent. But as I've always expected, most would rather ignore the facts in favor of having a nice juicy enemy to blame for things. Such.is.life.

  • May 30, 2010, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Part of why? Why did I even type that?

    by gotilk

    Not sure. It wasn't PART of why anything. It WAS why there was so much interest in new Who, BSG and eventually Torchwood. While none of them were airing in the US, people in the US couldn't stop talking about them and downloading them. Which led to success being broadcast. Did it have SOME negative impact? Of course, but the positives far, far , far outweighed the negatives. I remember all the buzz about BSG after that first post-miniseries episode popped up on the torrent sites. It was deafening.

Someday they'll realize that the show being seen it what really counts. I just wish they would get directly involved so that they could reap the rewards of all those millions of eyeballs using ads. It really is sad that so much genre TV is HUGELY popular on the Internet but the numbers are ignored for the most part. They MUST find a way to get these shows to us in a timely manner, legitimately and make some money on it. The funniest and dumbest part of it all is that with torrents they never have to worry about paying for the bandwidth. The users take care of it. It could be the sweetest deal for everyone, but it's not even looked at because it has this reputation. Sad.

    That should bother you. And there are steps everyone should take to get in the way of people who would decide they have the right to that information. Encryption, encrypted downloads/connections, proxies, IP ban lists for torrent clients and probably the best solution for most would be to subscribe to an all-you-can eat Usenet service so you can bypass all that nonsense and download where everyone stopped looking about 8 years ago. Alt.binaries.hdtv is a good start. Just avoid the porn, stay away from groups with sketchy names and never download anything but media files. It's just too much trouble for them to 1. Monitor Usenet 2. Look at the raw data, convert it and then re-convert it as it's usually RAR files or multipart MIME, UUcode or yEnc data that looks like nonsense and requires multiple steps on the monitoring end. The nice thing for the non-monitoring side is that many binary downloaders take care of that who process for you. But on their end, they'd have to monitor it ALL and then decide which people to focus on.. then decide which files, where they go.. how they are joined, encoded, etc etc etc. It's much easier for them to sit on a torrent and just collect IP addresses. They won't ever bother with the other nonsense.

    A solid conclusion.

    by Rhuragh

    It felt a bit odd suddenly deflating the tension at the start of the episode to suddenly go into political negotiations, but I can live with it. I was hoping that this one would surpass at least one of the better mid-season two-parters from earlier seasons, but, alas, I don't think it managed to succeed in that. It's still included in the ranks of the good mid-season two-parters, but it's towards the bottom of the list. It's still light years ahead of shit like Aliens of London/WWIII, Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel, Daleks in Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks, and both fourth season mid-season two-parters (the good list is all of the other mid-season two-parters not included above). This also means that this is the first season of NuWho that hasn't had one (or both) of the mid-season two-parters suck. <BR><BR>Anyway, I actually found this episode kind of remind me of an RTD episode. Specifically the focus on the Doctor's fascination with humanity and wanting them to be good and/or better; coupled with the swift and unexpected changes in focus and tone (expected action in the beginning being deflated and then replaced by peace negotiations, only to see the threat of violence return in the end). <BR><BR>Speaking of which, I'm completely perplexed to see all the whinging about the writing on the show failing now. As someone says above, the writing quality this year has been the most consistent since the first season (low points in the first season were the AoL/WWIII two-parter and, I know I'll be alone on this, but, Father's Day; the only low point this season is Victory of the Daleks). We've already had one brilliant episode (Eleventh Hour, a top ten of NuWho for me), and will probably get at least one or two more excellent episodes before the end of the season (I'm thinking next week is a candidate, and then the two-part season finale also). I think I know why many of you are disappointed. RTD may have been terrible at writing decent plots, but he was great at building tension (it was just stupid tension). RTD's plots went beyond mercurial and straight to schizophrenic. Couple that with Tennant's manic acting and Murray Gold's raucous music and RTD's episodes were big, dumb, and full of kinetic energy. The problem is that energy was seldom more than skin deep. There was rarely any decent plotting or characterization underpinning that excitement, so it was just full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Moffat's scripts (and the scripts he's editing) at least seem to be attempting to provide some real framework to get us truly invested into the characters and their situations before thrusting them into the meat grinder; and for the most part I think Moffat has succeeded. Incidentally, I think that's why Gold's music has bothered me so much this season. He's still writing his music to carry the weight for RTD's lousy scripting and it's simply bombastic, histrionic, and completely unnecessary in Moffat's Who. <BR><BR>Back to the episode...there's yet more whinging here over Meera Syal's character, Nasreen. Did this actress do something to piss off everyone like Kylie Minogue and I've missed it? I actually really liked her character and I'm hoping we see her again. In fact, I'd love for the Doctor to return after the thousand years are up to try to mediate the negotiations and meet up with Nasreen and Tony to see how he's mutated. <BR><BR>Geeky side-track. It is currently the 21st century. A thousand years from now is the 31st century...right in the middle of Liz X's reign on the Starship UK. The Earth is uninhabited, and largely uninhabitable in the 31st century. In the span of seven episodes they managed to forget the series canon they used in an episode on this very subject earlier in the season. How sloppy. I know there's lots of other canon that ignores this period of time, but still, a little intra-season continuity would be appreciated. *sigh*<BR><BR>Still don't get the Amy hate, by the way. At least the misogyny factor is a little lower so far this week. We've only had one asshole call her a sex toy!

    by Rhuragh

    Yes, Torchwood has been renewed. I listened to a radio interview with Barrowman a month or so ago where he confirmed it. RTD wants to do another 6 episode mini like Children of Earth, while the BBC wants another full season. They're still working out the details, but yes, it's almost certainly going to happen. They probably haven't started production yet though, so it's probably still at least a year away.

    by V'Shael

    but the paper hasn't been signed, and until it is, it hasn't been approved yet. When they work out what all parties can agree on, I'm sure it'll rush into production. But for the moment, Barrowman is working in the states and RTD is living there. I can see why they want a mini series. But the BBC could put their collective foot down, and thus scupper the project. That sort of idiocy is common at the BBC.

    Another by the way...Chris Chibnall...

    by Rhuragh

    Chibnall did write one of the worst episodes of Torchwood (Cyberwoman), but he also wrote the BEST episodes of the series (Countrycide, Fragments, Exit Wounds); and furthermore seems to be a pretty decent writer. Fragments in particular is an absolutely outstanding episode, and quite possibly the best episode of the series. Chibnall contributed an incredible amount of depth to both Toshiko and Owen in that episode.

    ...I popped in to ask people's opinions of the best Doctors and stories. I never got a chance to come back before now, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who took the time to answer me; you were all a great help. Again, my thanks.

    Caught in my own trap Optimus

    by 2LeggedFreak

    I started watching the episode of Sapphire $ Steel I referred you to and ended up watching most of it.<br /><br />It was amazing what they did on such a small budget and PJ Hammond did a great job writing it.<br /><br />Well worth catching up with.

    The return of Rory

    by FuzzyLumpkins

    Just because he appears in the finale does not necessarily mean he comes back to life.

    I didnt buy the motivations

    by Spikey

    It was a decent ep but too many things were getting on my nerves. I felt the lizard girl deserved to die, she started that particlar fight and goaded the humans. The daughter was only doing her Jack Bauer best to help her dad and was fully justified in doing so i felt. I just didnt buy the whining about letting everyone down.

    Yes, because torturing and murdering someone under your custody is clearly acceptable and moral behavior. Fucking republicans.

    So what order should I watch Sapphire and Steel? Are all those episodes on Youtube? Any webpage I can go to for more info? Thanks for pointing that show out to me.

    by optimus122

    Normally I would agree with you but that is why we don't let people who are intimately involved with crime victims do the questioning. I know if my son was stolen from me and it was a creature that showed it had no cares for human life I would tune its ass up good and try and get my kid back. Any parent would do the same thing.

  • So, we know this, TSJA will be on the air at it's usual time of the year, but, will they did what they did last year? Will they air the part 1 and 2 episodes during the same week? Torchwood, nothing signed yet, so, we may not see it on the air until next year. So, basicly, it's "good news, bad news", in my opinion, of course.

    by optimus122

    Eh I understand your point, like I said its easy to say this when you have nothing at stake. If some killer is sitting next to your mom with a knife to her throat and you have a gun do you let him slit her throat and drink her blood or do you take him out? You are a liar if you say you would let him do what he wants to do. Again this is why the family's of crime victims are not invited to be involved in investigation or interrogation of the suspects. In a normal situation I would not dream of hurting anyone. But put on the spot in a situation like I describe above the guy next to my mom will end up with his brains all over the wall.

  • It's "good news, good news", it's "a win, win", it's "a homerun", well, he'd say it's a homerun if he were american.

    @optimus122 - Sapphire and Steel

    by V'Shael

    You should watch them in order, if possible. There were only ever 6 Assignments made. They are usually 6 or 8 episodes long, around 30 minutes per episode. <p> They are mixed quality, but there are some very very cool things in there. And Joanna Lumley is at her most gorgeous.

    Optimus - that doesn't fly

    by Steve Rogers

    Cos then there would have been no danger to him from the crack in Flesh & Stone, and he wouldn't have been able to consider "feeding" himself to it to seal it up.

    by optimus122

    Not saying what I replied with is a valid reason but so far I have heard no other reason as to why he can put his hand in there when others would just disappear. Look Rory is gone from the timeline and Amy doesn't remember him at all yet the doctor does. Anyone else have a good reason why the doctor can stick his hand in that crack?

    Smashing

    by Candy ass monkey suit

    How can you say the show looks cheaper now ! Both Victory of the daleks,Time of the angels,flesh and stone and cold earth all had superb production values (for tv) that the original series would have killed for! Tpo some of the other poster points. I really don't think the moff will ahve the tardis destroyed and the dr will be without it next yr or lose it completely. The tardis is as much a part of the show as the Dr is and if it was destroyed then that would be the end of the show as its the last tardis anyway.

    There are 6 assignments and all are 6-8 episodes long meaning there are some 48 episodes to be viewed? I will Google the name and find out exactly the order and find the episodes and watch them. Ya Lumley looked pretty good in that youtube video. She was hot.

    Amy and Rory were there because it was in their real future and they knew that the doctor and themselves would be arriving there at that date and time. The doctor at the end of their adventure will most probably be dropping off Amy and Rory on the night of their wedding and they will live on and go to that site 10 years in the future...well if the Doctor can save Rory and bring him back heh.

    Doctor Who Chat

    by gotilk

    I started a channel on the same network as the AICN chat at the link up above here on the site. When you connect, type /join #Gallifrey and you will have joined. If anyone is interested in being an op and lurking here and there, let me know in the channel and I can show you how to register your nickname, etc etc. I expect very few people if any, except hopefully on Saturdays. Should be a blast there on Saturdays. At least for a few months. Come in and say hi. You'll be surprised how much nicer people are in chat. I can't be around a lot right now, but will pop in and check here and there. I'll be watching it for about 30 minutes right about now. Hope some of you can stop by.

    To all you Homos bitching about Amy Pond..

    by dasaroo

    .. kindly Shut The Fuck Up! Do not spoil this for the rest of us! She is the smartest, sharpest, leggiest Companion the Doctor has had in ages. Just because her writing has been hit or miss, is not her fault. Her acting is not at fault. She has huge potential, if they just figure out who they want her to be. Give her a chance, for fuck's sake.

    Yep when I referred it to Optimus I had vague recollections of it being good so caught up on the last assignment and it was great.<br /><br />With a better budget it would have knocked the socks of most shows.<br /><br />However they made up for lack of budget with "eery" and it can get spectacularly spooky at times.<br /><br />By a weird coincidence I notice Ace of Wands posting as well and of course Hammond wrote that show...one of my favourite kids shows ever.

    The best episode of this season......

    by blackflowerX

    This was like Moffet at his absolute BEST (even though Chris Chibnall wrote it), I just wish the rest of this season had been so perfect ( the only thing that was off was Meera Syal's acting , she really sucked)........ It felt like something from the Tom Baker years crossed with something totally new....... Amy Pond was fantastic , I hope they keep the last few episodes at this level....... I had given up on this show , but now I'm really excited again (*fingers crossed) I had a gut rush when the doctor pulled out that piece of debris from the crack in time....

    by 2LeggedFreak

    Production values excellent and loved the Klax and the Post Office.<br /><br />Dance was brilliant as Vetinari ( Why the fuck would anyone choose to go head to head with him...do they never learn!!)<br /><br />The humour isn't as easy as with the Pratchett written word but there are some gems in there like Adora having a fit of hysterics when her father loses everything---in front of a pile of cabbages !!!<br /><br />And Angua is in it---looking slightly hotter than I imagined her !!!!<br /><br />Top class--- Witches next please.

    Going Postal - I was thrilled to see it, finally

    by V'Shael

    I've been waiting seemingly ages since word first leaked. <p> But I'm sorry to say that I wasn't THAT impressed by it. Some of the changes from the book don't work for me. <p> Changes I like, such as having Ridcully make a cameo are really good. But others, like the fucking nutty overboard way they've made smoking out to be the great evil, are just irritating as fuck. <p> I loved seeing a hot Angua. And Ms. Cripslock of the Times. Would love to see them in a movie, if you know what I mean... <p> I miss the Anghammerand storyline. But I can live with that. Gilt is more of a boisterous laughing villain than in the book, which makes him dumber in my opinion. You don't loudly laugh at your evil plans while still in Vetinari's palace. <p> But I suppose that's always going to happen with an adaptation of Diskworld. You simply can't include everything. <p> Still, I would have loved to see Ms. Dearheart deliver the line about Sam Vimes. <br> "He’s the most cynical bastard that walks under the sun." <br> "You think he's cynical?" said Moist. <br> "Yes," she said, blowing smoke. "As you suspect, that’s practically a professional opinion."

    If you love the Pertwee era then hind down this book. Ties all the UNIT stories into an investigative journalist's conspiracy theory. Brings in 1st, 2nd and 7th Doctors as well. And also definitively solves the JFK asassination. Probably out of print now but worth hunting down if you can. Writen by David Bishop & James Stevens.

    by Rhuragh

    The final ratings numbers show that The Hungry Earth had 6.49 million viewers. The original over night count was 4.5 million viewers, so that's an increase of two million viewers. Most episodes see a bump of around one million viewers in the final ratings, so, just as we said, everyone was simply enjoying the nice weather outdoors.

    by V'Shael

    The ratings of nu-Who can vary up and down by quite an amount. To get a more accurate impression, look at audience share.<br /><br />The audience share has consistently been 30%-35%.<br /><br />If the ratings were down for one episode, but the share remained the same, that's an indication that the entire nights viewing figures were down. (e.g. first sunny day of the year)<br /><br />But yeah, people who have a hate-on for the new series will never let facts get in the way.

    Amy's neighbour

    by Evilmeister

    Was played by Annette Crosbie who has some serious acting credentials.<br> When I saw her in the eleventh hour I presumed she would be a series regular, she's not really the sort of person who would just do a bit part. Unless of course, she is a Dr Who fan an just wanted a lil cameo in the show.<br><br> I'm hoping there will be more to this, especially if it is part of a Dr running around over his own timeline sorting things out.<br> Sadly though, part of me is slightly scared that we could all be theorising for nothing. The amount of good ideas that were discussed in the talkbacks regarding the previous series, which turned out to be better than the actual story was kinda shocking.<br> One other nugget of hope is that Karen Gillan said that Steven Moffat does some really interesting things with time during this series, so lets hope that is a lil hint that we are right and we wont get let down.<br><br> *crosses fingers*

    Pertwee era was better than some others

    by frozen01

    I know I'm going to piss off someone here but I tried watching some of the Peter Davison era and only made it about 10 minutes. At least Pertwee's had the Brigadiere to make it enjoyable. Special effects might have been horrible, but IMO it added to the charm a bit. <p>What I'd REALLY like to see is that Paul McGann TV special. Ironically, not available for region 1 players.

    1. Doc sticking his arm into the crack was ridiculous, even my 9yo son spotted that one.<p> 2. Lizard Surgeon dissected Dad while in the most gruesome way possible but all of sudden Surgeon is a nice guy, let's go find your son? PFFFFFF

    amy does some interesting things with time..

    by emeraldboy

    hmmmm. amy was in that episode with david tennant and catherine tate, where the dr ends up in pompeii where she played a sothsayer.

  • The ones that have missing episodes. Those are unwatchalble. Other than that, I have enjoyed ALL of the rest, from Pertwee all the way to Smith.

  • I do watch the complete Hartnell and Troughton stories. Like you said, if you look past the bad FX, ect., they are good stories.

  • June 2, 2010, 11:02 a.m. CST

    @Hairy Nutsack - There is clearly a difference

    by V'Shael

    between the crack and the time energy which eventually leaks through it and removes people from the timeline (or from peoples memories, or whatever). <p> We know this because Prisoner Zero was able to get through the crack, obviously without hitting any of that weird time energy. <p> So I don't think there's a problem with the Doctor sticking his hand in. But he definitely didn't want to get snagged by the energy which eventually leaked out from the crack.

  • I guess you won't be sending Liam Neeson a thank you card antime soon, will you? I liked him TPM and Taken. On the subject of Doctor Who, I love crazy time travel in Who, here's hoping for a slam-bang 2 part Series (season) finale!!!!!

    Davison seemed too uninterested to me. Perhaps it was just the episode I saw, dunno. I'll try again after I get done with a few other incarnations.

  • June 3, 2010, 5:22 a.m. CST

    Davison is a good Doctor

    by Steve Rogers

    But by the time of his tenure the tiny budget and studio-bound restrictions of Classic Who were really beginning to show through. A shame that his best story, The Caves of Androzani, is also his last.

  • June 3, 2010, 6:32 a.m. CST

    oh it's a hate-on... er, i guess

    by foree forehead

    i really despise the show. i would fire everyone and do it completely differently. but i don't think the way other people argue about ratings or make predictions about the show's future are doing anything sensible or worthwhile. to me that's like saying popular music is the best because the most people like it. just ignore them but know there are more, ahhh, learned haters out there...

    by frozen01

    Shame, I really like it. It's not perfect, but neither was series 1 (Eccleston era) and eventually I came around to enjoying that and even, to a degree, preferring it. I'm willing to give them a bit more time to get things sorted out. Smith is a brilliant Doctor and I think Amy will come around, too. She's already much better than Martha, and possibly even Rose. There could be a bit more humor to it, sure, but I'm really enjoying the departure from the RTD days of silliness and unwillingness to just part ways with a character, along with the touch more complexity to the plots.

    To our new home!<br> <br> Shibs... nice to see someone else remember the Magic Roundabout. Such a big part of my childhood. I had a toy Magic Roundabout with little figurines you put on the horses.... wound it up... played the theme... was BRILLIANT when I was wee. That and my Sooty The Bear and Basil Brush stuffed toys. Well I have the day off today, so I'm popping downt o the local pub with my buddy Bill - another HUGE Who fan - to have a pint of Guinness in the sunshine. Then I have to finish of the MOD I have been working on for about 4 hours on Mod Nation Racers - it's Warlock from The New Mutants... Gotlik... you have that game yet?

    Cats Suck.

    by Pogue__Mahone

    It's a fact. What doesn't suck is all the charm and strangeness of Hartnell's classic WHO. Gotlik you have it nailed on the head. That's why I love them too. And I have the first chunk of them - including the ones you're watching now - in a lovely litte boxset I picked up on e-bay last year called 'Doctor Who: The Beginning'. Hartnell's Doctor is a bit of a douchebag, actually.... wait til you see what he does on their NEXT stop just so he can go exploring. And THEN see where THAT leads them. As I said. Douchebag. But an awesome douchebag. Have you picked up MOD NATION RACERS yet, gotlik?

    by axcel1

    I was always hearing the same thing on these talkbacks, "Old Who sucks!!!! They have no lousy SFX!!!!!!!!!!!" I didn't discover Old-Old-Who until the local PBS station started showing Doctor Who from the begining. It was strange, after watching Tom Baker, and then, Peter Davison, to watch Who from the begining, in grainy black and white and, a very different Doctor. I only saw the completed stories, so, more Hartnell than Troughton, who is very different from Hartnell.

    That's what I get using alternative browsers

    by gotilk

    always. Back then it could have been any of them.. Opera, old Netscape Navigator (I used that for a LONG time after they stopped directly developing it), I've even used Safari on windows. Now I'm so used to Firefox, it could crash every 5 minutes and I'd probably still use it. lol. But it was SO frustrating because there was literally no way for me to be online, yet there I was according to a couple of particularly obstinate and slightly paranoid people. You can see how that got real old, real fast. My fault for the most part though, quickly locking my computer with windows/L and walking away without closing the browser. Still a bad habit. BUT... these days it's a great reminder to post here, so not so bad. It's been nice these days not having a reason to "lock" my computer when I walk away for 30 seconds. But I still do out of old habits. So if I walk by the screen, I don't see what programs are open in passing like I used to many years ago. Back before I lost all my privacy a couple of times, before learning my lesson. You would not believe how far people will go to prove a personal theory about your activities even in the absence of evidence and with complete, unhindered access to every move you make. So yes... I had a stalker or two. One of whom I was involved with WHILE she was stalking me. The other was just.. f^73&6# weird.

    Grew up on Davison and Colin Baker(ugh) and McCoy(eh) but my city had replays of the old who and my brother loved Pertwee - he had swagger

    I miss faire

    by gotilk

    I love how impromptu things can happen. I remember a little hippie drum circle one year turning into a sweaty dance orgy with about 200 people. Not very "on-topic" of course, but F the rules sometimes. I saw an amazing escape artist one year that blew my mind. But I think one of the things I miss the most is the deep fried oysters and room temp Guinness combination. Yum. And of course things like your costume. Envelope - pushing stuff. Stuff that makes some of the old stuffed shirts all pissy. Ahhh, I must start going again. My life has been far too boring for the last few years with all these "normals" I've been around.

    I have not seen much Pertwee, but I gotta agree... swagger he did have. And I'm completely DIGGING the Pertwee stuff. Colin Baker, that's a diff story. I don't hate him, but he has this look about him... sort of a "I'm better than you all" thing that kind of bugs me. Because it's not really EARNED, you know? But I don't hate him or anything.

  • But, I see I may be alone or almost alone. Sorry, real life duties had to be performed. I had to pull two dead DVD drives out of my wife's computer and put in two good ones, clean up, ate dinner, (zucchini parmesan) really good, but, it's the first time my wife cooked a zucchini, didn't know you had to take the skin off, except for that, it came out perfect.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 7:25 p.m. CST

    Yeah, Pertwee is certainly the bad-boy Doctor.

    by gotilk

    You can never really tell if he's the good guy, at least at 100%. You know? That's what I'm loving about his Doctor. Not what I expected at all.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 7:27 p.m. CST

    Zucchini Parmesan sounds really, really good.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 7:29 p.m. CST

    gotilk, I agree with you about Pertwee and both Bakers

    by axcel1

    But, Colin baker's take on the Doctor, yes, he had that "I'm better than all of you" Attitude, I liked it. He never lost it, but, in some stories, like "Attack of the Cybermen" (One of my favorites.) he finds out he's not always right.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 7:29 p.m. CST

    So it's not just my imagination with Colin Baker? You noticed that as well? It's odd. Like he's looking at humans down through his nose at them. (is that the term? lol I forget) It just gets on my nerves. Seems out of character and not really earned by what he does/says as the Doctor. Just a slight criticism though, I really don't hate Colin as much as some others do.

    axcel1

    by gotilk

    Yeah, sometimes those dinner mistakes turn out well. Like the time I accidentally discovered "salting" a steak a few days before reading about it. I wondered what was so magically delicious and tender about that ONE steak. Turned out when I accidentally spilled all the kosher salt on it, I was inadvertently using a long-used restaurant steak secret.

  • I told you, it has the Doctor connect with Cybermen storylines from "The Tenth Planet", "The Invasion", and "Tomb of the Cybermen". I love stories that pick up from others like this one does..

  • When Ace joined him, the clown act went away and he started being very mysterious, the stories got better. Oh, and, like I said, don't forget to take the skin off the zucchini, tastes like eggplant.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 7:44 p.m. CST

    Try it some time.

    by gotilk

    Sprinkle kosher salt on a steak right before you cook it. Do not pound or mash the steak in any way beforehand. Treat it delicately. Sprinkle it liberally, as if it were snowed upon with a full white layer. Let stand IN the fridge for an hour in a clean fridge, uncovered . No longer. Rinse the steak off and pat it SUPER dry with paper towels. And cook it normally. You can add flavoring before throwing on the salt, like garlic. But do not put so much on that it blocks the path of the salt molecules. Logic says that the salt should absorb the moisture from the steak and make it dry. But the truth is the opposite. The salt "tangles" and relaxes the proteins in the meat and draws moisture back deep into the meat, what you commonly know as that JUICY tenderness. It works... every time. And will turn a cheap cut into something more akin to prime rib.

    No, not a member of the tribe...

    by gotilk

    but I have cooked for and served many (and cleaned up after) for holidays in my time hanging around Hillel at the college. Fine bunch of people. And the women that came in from Isreal... OH MY GAHD!!! I spent a day photographing all the incoming students for online bios and was just blown away by all the natural beauty that passed before me and my lens. It's as if the suicide bombers only blew up all the ugly people over there. (I know.. tasteless... sorry.. but jeeeze.. more beauty there per capita than anywhere else in the world) And I made so many friends there. Truly some of the best conversations (and calm, thoughtful argument/debate) I've ever had. Practically came close to conversion, except for that whole not really believing it thing. Any of the religions. But the community, the sense of togetherness, respect, fairness, selflessness, generosity... went against all the stereotypes you confront regarding Jewish people. I'll never forget even a moment of my time there. Well, except the names for the holidays other than Shabbat. So no, not a member of the tribe. But as close as you can get.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 8:54 p.m. CST

    I also fell in love with a Jewish girl.

    by gotilk

    But it was from afar, as one of my friends appeared to be "into" her for quite a while. And that's a no-no for me. My man code, so to speak. If a friend is interested, and I'm not already dating her, hands off. It may seem extreme, but I think it shows integrity and loyalty. She was a teacher, and passionate about it. Such a great woman. ahhh.... heartbreaking.

  • Aug. 17, 2010, 10:01 p.m. CST

    They are so much more than just potato pancakes

    by gotilk

    (they are not, but for the sake of embellishment I will say they are) They are an explosion of potato perfection. They are only flat in appearance because they exist in a flavor dimension that cannot be perceived by human senses, so we only see them as flat. Yet somehow they cross the dimensional barrier with their delectable culinary purity anyway. They say sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Well, they are magic to me. But I must believe that somewhere out there is a 6th dimensional species whose only purpose for living in this universe is to convey their message of peace and love through the excitement and stimulation of the human taste buds. With Latkes (laskes? I googled it too.. wild)!!! So remember, the next time you have one, in a way.. you are spreading peace and love throughout the universe. Good on ya!

    by gotilk

    Wow, I guess it has changed. I knew a guy here that struggled to make rent a few years back. He made some friends over there, moved to Japan, got a small apartment and lived like a king for what he made on a web site's ads and a very small "allowance" from his parents. I live in the Sacramento, California region. Lots has changed here, too. We got rid of a lot of the slum lords, but replaced a lot of the buildings with high-end "lofts" that almost no-one living alone can afford. It seems the less you make here, the higher percentage of your money they want for rent. I can get a small apartment in a decent area for pretty cheap. But once you go out into the poorer areas, oddly enough, where people have poor credit scores yet still need a place to live, the rents are outrageous. Years back I lived in a house I rented from a guy that ended up selling the property without telling us to a guy in Canada AND a guy in the US. And disappeared. So then 2 different people showed up asking for rent. Hilarity ensued. I want to leave the area for a while, probably in the next few years. Something about Sac just brings you back. But I have to get away for at least a few years.

    by gotilk

    for half a day. I'd never cooked before in my life and he knew it when he hired me, yet felt like it was alright to belittle me in front of all my new co-workers. After about 3 hours of it, I threw what I was working on directly on the floor and walked out. I let him know he could keep his money and that I considered it life experience. What a turd. The plus now is that even all these years later, no job , no matter how menial or boring it is, bothers me.

    We just had "positivity training" at work yesterday

    by frozen01

    It was an hour of being told that we were too introverted, hadn't "finished developing", needed to be more extroverted and inject ourselves into more social situations at work. One poor woman indicated she might be interested in going back to school, but life was just kind of in the way, and the HR person heading the "training" singled her out and retorted that a) financial aid is just TOO easy to get, so it's not an excuse, b) no one is EVER too busy to go to school... after all, she (the HR woman) has three kids and a full-time job and is working towards her Masters! and c) she must just be too afraid of her own success. <p>See? You can only inspire people by belittling them! :)

  • "Man VS Wild", I don't know why I like this show, it's magnet, it draws me in. Next week, he can't find any place wild, so, he has his crew blow up the Canadian Rockies, he gets buried alive by an avalanche and gets air-lifted to the hospital.

    One was a netbook (199.99 great deal) that works perfectly. And the other is what is considered a 'Net-top' which is a tiny computer for the desktop with some of the same components as a netbook. Great for surfing the net, e-mail, some picture editing, playing movies, streaming stuff, etc. That one was 199.99 as well. Both good deals.

    I assume that anything that brings this many visitors to the site is a good thing in their eyes. Did you read Frozen01's story about the person with the site suddenly getting a bunch of hits after being mentioned here, in DocBack?? Well, just imagine the ad impressions AICN is getting from people coming here and yes, occasionally clicking an ad. I'm sure it is very much worth their bandwidth.

    No, I imagine it was not. But I imagine it would be benificial to have a milkshake with the properties instilled upon it to attract the girls to your landscaping area. And curse them if they think theirs is superior, because it is not. You could of course take the time to instruct them on how to reproduce the properties heretofore mentioned, but I imagine you would most likely be forced to attach a surcharge.

    by TallanDagwood

    I have been a Dr Who fan since the early seventies. Tom Baker is my favorite Doctor. I just loved the way he approached the character and how he made the long scarf and floppy hat iconic symbols for Whovian's around the world.<p> You could be in Paris or Amsterdam, Rome or Montreal, but if you saw someone wearing those items- you knew you had come across a fellow Whovian and you could say hello- as long as they were not gibbering to themselves that is! LOL

I wouldn't be surprised if some ad man said, "You know, we would pay a little extra if a main character ate our product, said it's name, and the camera came in close on it."

  • Aug. 21, 2010, 7:18 a.m. CST

    Good Morning!!

    by gotilk

    Yes, so glad the weekend is here. One of my two sisters is supposed to come over and relieve me of my "duties" (aka slavery) one day every weekend. But lately it's turned into one of them coming over AFTER lunch and leaving RIGHT after dinner. Kind of a rip-off. Last few weekends they kind of skipped it and tried to make up for it during the week here and there. But it's hard for them to get it into their tiny little brains that life goes on when they're not here. And every time they're on their way over, I head straight to bed. So they have this impression of me... sleeping.. always. REALLY gets to pissing a guy off when he spends most waking hours serving another person. And the impression going around is that he does nothing but sleep. But I'm fairly used to this crap. In my family, if there's no stress.. nothing is being done. Pretty screwed up way of looking at life, but I've become accustomed to it. I just hope it doesn't rub off.

    I am heading to Faire. I'm mostly going because my friend had a really rough week and wants to go both days, and I doubt he would go if I wasn't there (especially considering that I usually drive and get him the discounted tickets). So I felt kind of guilty about being sick when he really needs a Faire day :o\ Don't worry, I'll take it easy, drink plenty of water... and who knows, maybe the sunshine will do me some good :) <p>Hope to see you all tonight. If not, enjoy your weekend! <p>And gotilk, this is going to sound really strange, but there are times that I'm really grateful that no one in my family talks to anyone else!
