Theories at Bleeding Cool.

Johnston suggests that Amy and Rory will get sent back in time by the Angels and wind up raising their daughter after all.  I think that's a very, very tempting resolution.

Connolly notes that Amy commented in last week's episode that she and Rory have aged ten years and that the Amy and Rory waving to them across the way in Hungry Earth were ten years later.  It's tempting to see that as significant but I'm going to have to call bullshit -- Hungry Earth was ten years in the future, not ten years later in Amy and Rory's personal timeline.

Other possibilities raised: River gets sent back in time to raise herself; the typo on Rory's badge turns out to mean something after all; this finally loops River's arc and sends her off to the library.  But I like Rich's guess best.

So does the BBC hate quality or just the DVD format? Because wow.
Sure glad I didn't pay full price for these.
Bad images printed on the disc,  typos,  shoddy packaging, and the video quality isn't fantastic either.

So,  uh,  just a warning, I guess.

Are you sure you didn't just buy a bootleg?

Factory sealed and looks like photos of my friend's but the thought did cross my mind when I saw the typo disc.


(I know it's fairly easy to fake factory sealing but hrm)

Unless my buddy bought bootleg a year ago...

Well, they're in the mail for return anyway as the post office smashed every case into plastic splinters and folded cardboard.

Well shit. That's kind of what I expected to happen, though they tied it off rather better than I thought they would. I actually almost felt sorry for the Angels at one point toward the beginning, but them being total sociopaths won out in the end. The false finale wasn't really that false, if you were paying attention, but it was well done.

Yeah, I liked it.

I mean, it was pretty damn close to what happened with Rose (and has an even easier Undo button if they decide to bring them back for the fiftieth anniversary) but I think he sold it a lot better.

I like that the arc of this half-season was thematic rather than plot-based, and I also think River was well-used in this episode and most of her various awkward problems did not crop up.  (Especially now that we know she's no longer in prison -- and is a professor now.  Which means this episode occurs later in her timeline than any of the rest except Silence/Forest.  Though there's still room to squeeze more in between now and then.)

I also think it makes for an interesting compare-and-contrast to last week's -- it's another example of the monster taking a backseat to Amy and Rory's story, but instead of being a monster that we've never seen before and the Doctor magically fixing everything, it's a monster we HAVE seen before and things going down pretty much exactly as they did in the beginning of Blink.

Not much new, but new wasn't the point.  All in all, pretty good I thought.

Oh, one more recurring thing that keeps popping up this season: the number seven.

Doctor Who: P.S. - Series 7 2012 - BBC One

On the one hand, I like it.  On the other, I'm kinda glad it wasn't shot.

I like that it ties up two of the biggest loose ends of the season so far.  But I hate long goodbyes.

I agree on both counts. I like it, but this kind of thing is a bit of a rabbit hole. Presumably he's got letters for other people as well, and when you start getting into all that noise, it just goes on and on.

Yeah.  I've said before that Rose's goodbye episode would have been much better if it had ended 15 minutes sooner -- no driving across the country for one last message and explaining everything that had happened, no Doctor collapsing a star to talk to her one last time; just end with the scene where he's on one side of the wall and she's on the other.

This managed to strike something of a happy medium.  Amy gets to say goodbye but doesn't take her sweet time doing it.

On the other hand, Rory doesn't get to say goodbye and that kinda sucks; this clip gives him a chance to do it, and there's a reason Darvill's the only actor in it.

Seriously, I love Rory.

I've finally managed the strength to say goodbye to the tenth doctor. As far as I can tell through netflix, his last stand is season 4 - planet of the dead - waters of mars - the end of time 2-parter. Am I missing anything?

That's the full run. Although I think the Next Doctor is the episode before Planet of the Dead.

I realize this thing started getting popular a while ago, but god damn that just seems weird. I'm still thinking it's like 1996 where there'd be like one videostore in town that'd have three or four random 80s episodes just because they had that one strange employee who was kind of into it.

Gaiman says a few things about his episode, including that it will have Warwick Davis in it and that Smith's lines are very hard to say.

There's also some stuff about the upcoming radio adaptation of Neverwhere (Benedict Cumberbatch!  Anthony Head!  Christopher Lee!), and he notes that he's working on the American Gods pilot for HBO.

Some teases from producer Caroline Skinner.

We'll be seeing more of Vastra, Jenny, and Strax throughout the coming season, the Clara/Oswin mystery will be addressed right off the bat (but will probably carry on through the rest of the season), and Neil Gaiman's episode has the Cybermen in it.

Twelve or thirteen hours to go, right?
