I know he's always been able to do the mind meld thing. I'm up to season 16 of the classic series and he's already mind melded with plenty of people. But usually he's taking information out of their heads not putting information in. In girl in the fireplace I'd say she was taking information out of the doctor's head. I dunno just doesn't seem like the doctor often puts information into people's heads by mind melding. And to be honest I didn't see the need for it in the lodger anyway. Couldn't the doctor have just talked craig into calming down?

Alright, I'll catch up with it on BBC iPlayer.

To be honest though, I avoided it Saturday because fucking James Corden was guest starring in it.

Not the best plot or characters (and not enough Amy! >:C), but Matt Smith's performance really made the episode worth watching (I can't imagine how horrible this episode would have been with Tennant as the Doctor).
Out of the NewWho Doctors, I think Tennant is much more human. Eccleston had a bit of a problem with humans and Smith seems to understand people and at the same time not understand people.

I still find Tennant a great Doctor, but Smith being backed by Moffat, you can't help but enjoy it.

That's why I think Tennant wouldn't have worked as well in this episode. He's almost too human, he has to go around reminding people, "I'm a Time Lord! I'm the last of the Time Lords!" Whereas with Smith, you can tell that he is definitely and without a doubt not of this world, but you can still relate to him in a human way. I think I could say that out of all the NewWho Doctors, Smith is the most like the classic Doctors.

I also think the biggest problem with Tennant was being written by Davies. He had some great ideas, but almost always tended to ruin them with abysmal ideas (like the whole Tinkerbell Jesus Doctor scene in "Last of the Time Lords"). Kind of like Sylvester McCoy, having stories with great promise but flawed executions.

Barring his first couple of serials, I find McCoy to be one of the greatest periods in the show's history. Ace is a fantastic companion, and by being absolutely mental the show manages to break from standard Who format in nearly every serial.

Apart from Pertwee + Jo, and maybe Troughton + Jamie and Zoe, McCoy + Ace is probably my favourite set up in the show.

Oh God, the Pandorica opens tomorrow! I've been keeping myself as far away from spoilers as I can, although I must confess I've snatched glances at a few sneak peeks here and there.

After tomorrow, waiting through the next week will be fucking interminable. But hey, at least it won't be a end-of-season cliffhanger, like Star Trek TNG's "The Best of Both Worlds."

You know, no matter how incredibly teeth-gnashingly infuriating it would be for everyone, myself included, I'd like to see something like that out of Doctor Who. An entire few months, instead of a few days, for the fans to wonder what would happen next. I think that now they could do something like that, having an episode be epic and amazing without having that element of ham and cheese that RTD's finales had.

Only complaint was Cybus Cybermen. They shouldn't even exist in this universe any more.

We all know almost every villain there is going to be removed from existence. A lot of those villains were RTD saga villains. Only a few should survive as they're either Moffat creations or classic villains.

Here is what I think will happen. The Doctor will wait in the Pandorica until 2010, at which point he gets out but has become insane and evil because of being stuck in a box for hundreds of years. He then takes remote control of the TARDIS and destroys it, so the League of Evil was right about him causing it, although they brought it about as well. Then child Amy Pond wibbly wobbly timey wimey everything is back to normal. It's not the best developed theory.

Its already exploded though.

I thought it was a pretty good episode, cruel cliffhanger. We're in for a long week. If I don't see Zygons and Mondasian Cybermen actually appear, I will explode causing a bigger bang than the TARDIS.

They aren't going to show them. They would only be using past costumes to save on production costs. They wouldn't make a whole new costume to show zygons for a simple cameo.

The thing that I've been thinking about is whether the vortex manipulator river song acquired belonged to jack harkness. If was obviously written as a throw back to him. Is there any reason why it couldn't belong to jack? I can't remember what happens to jack's limbs if they get cut off. I know he just grows a new one but what happens to the decapitated limb? It probably makes more sense it would belong to another, very much mortal, time agent.

But that was in 2010, the Doctor was trapped back in Roman times.

Whatever happens I'm fairly certain it will involve the Doctor spending an extended period of time in the Pandorica. If he isn't crazy when he gets out, he'll definitely be pissed off, and of course he'll give his little "Don't trap the doctor if you value your existence" speech.

I'm curious... If they were to bring back the Mondasian Cybermen, would they be the standard Fourth Doctor era cybers, or Cybus Industries cybers without the logo on their chests?


It's all cool, guys.

I'd assume they'd either just be lacking the logo, or would be a new design entirely. Probably the later.

I tried to make some Daleks out of Lego. They're not really accurate to any specific design, and they're about twice as large as they should be, but I think they look pretty good!

My expectations were too high. This episode disappointed me slightly.

The xmas episode better explain who the TARDIS hijacker is.

That was... the best. The first NuWho series finale that didn't leave me cringing at certain plot points by the end (see: Deus Ex TARDIS, Daleks vs. Cybermen wrap up, Tinkerbell Jesus Doctor, half-human meta-crisis Doctor, most of "The End of Time"). The way the finale connected everything from the series together was absolutely astounding. It also had a lot of little clever time travel moments, especially in the first half, that one would expect a show about time travel to feature more of.

Also, multi-series story arcs? Fuck yeeeeeesssss!

Well not explain it but end it with a hint towards the hijacker. Even so we see River's "first" appearance in the next series.
