Not very, actually. I'm a strong defender of the new series but that was beyond the pale!

It ranks a distant third in amongst the stories i have read or watched over the past 2 weeks, second being the commando comic "The Phantom's Strike" and the first being The Black Gang by Sapper.

I liked it. But I am now resigned to the fact that those who didn't will always shout louder than those who did-human nature, I guess.

Sorry, thoroughly loved this episode and I've now utterly depressed myself by skipping through several Who forums and reading a relentless barrage of negativity...

Although yesterday's episode was alright, I just wish they'd make their minds up who it's for - kids or adults. Same old moan from me , I know, but it needs addressing. As I've said before, I don't think the Beeb know exactly what it is they have with this character. It should be on later in the evening and be more grittier. Drop the stupid dumbo boyfriend and the now obligatory 'intelligent' girlfriend we have these days; it still astounds me, after a Dalek or similar is coming to get you and the Doctor wizzes his 'friends' off to another time and place to face yet another threat, how they are still amazed at what they see. And for God's sake let's have a Doctor who's not so bloody quirky...

I think they have raised the lower end of their target audience's age range this year, though-I doubt your average eight year old would have understood the concept of a self generating predestination paradox like the one with Auton Rory and the Sonic Screwdriver. And I like Rory and Amy.

Good underlying idea ruined by left off RTDism. Its kind of moving into your new house where a smelly man used to live. You've tidied it up, and its clean the smell still lingers. I'm hoping the smell will go in the next season, where Moffat doesnt have to make the series a copy of RTDs,

a relentless barrage of negativity

Well at least it wasn't as bad as the fourth worst story i read in the past 2 weeks, "The bar out at the Lycee St Jacques" from an 1899 issue of The Captain, it got going and going and then... ended.

And i suppose the second episode was way better than the first, with it's stupid alliance of "all the baddies" that previously only the lowest of fanfiction would dare sink to.

And i suppose the stone dalek was pretty cool... looked like a proper one and not a stocking filler! (I expect a humiliating u-turn and extermination of the new Daleks next series... did i say expect? i meant demand).

And the wedding arrival scene and the story of the TARDIS making Amy remember was pretty good too... now that i think about it.

Blimey, that episode was more of a "grower" than the Jag S Type, which is saying something!

Every episode this year has been better on second viewing. Trust me on this.

They are better BUT still fall under the legacy of RTD.

I'm honestly not seeing any of the Welsh windbag's influence in this series, HG. It felt totally different to me. I think the show you and GBF are after would by necessity be a post watershed show and that was probably rather too much to expect, but I do think it's upped its game this year all the same.

Unfortunatley the other big television event of the weekend will remain awful no matter how many times it's watched!

What other big event? The Glastonbury festival? Wimbledon? Formula 1? I can't think of anything else worth watching...

It still had bloody stupid humor and plotting for shock value rather than story, plot wholes wider than his ego and last but not least, Murry tone deaf Gold.

Well, on Murray Gold at least, we agree. But I can't really think of any obvious plot holes...

...Maybe because there was no plot to have a hole in...I see Mr Eccleston is becoming more and more invisible...from the best doctor since Tom Baker to 'invisible man' in Heroes to John Lennon...

Tony speaks the truth. The trauma from the horror that was the Tennant era prevented me from seeing this season through clear eyes to begin with, but as the song once said, I can see clearly now the rain has gone.

I knew you'd come around, once you watched it again! Have you seen the extra scenes on the box set, yet? Very Happy

I'm afraid I've only got the vanillas (only 2 and 4 so far, though I'll get the other 2 when finances permit).

Ah, pity. The scene where Amy cons the Doctor into telling the TARDIS to sho images of all previous residents and it carefully omits all the male ones is hilarious...

Yeah, I've seen 'em now. They are funny.

This 2parter has won Moffat his 4th Hugo.

His fourth Hugo, with the show actually having been nominated six times now. That's not bad going for an old TV show about a bloke in a box.
