In the first episode featuring River she died too. What's your point?

Yep, Moffat does have form when it comes to this sort of thing.

Well River can regenerate and while she is one of the Doctor's companions, we never witnessed that timeline nor will we ever most probably. But you might be going somewhere with this if River Song has one more regeneration to give, that this new girl is a future regenerated River Song.

Good opening episode to the series or (half series).
Let's see if they can keep that standard up throughout the run for once.
looking at the trailer for episode 2 that could go either way.

in other news Neil Gaiman has let slip that he's writing another episode.
http://www.sfx.co.uk/2012/09/03/is-n...er-doctor-who/

who knows when that will be produced or go out. Series 7B? 8A?

Got 3495 lying around?
Can't think what to spend it on?

Problem solved. Buy A Replica Dalek

http://www.bbcshop.com/page/dalekreplicas

A mate of mine got one of the 70's style ones about ten years ago, think it cost him about 1500 then.

Don't think i need to point out,
he's not married

Even though I didn't like Amy that much, I wish Rory could've stuck around. Poor River is an orphan now.

I was wondering the same thing too. Must have been cool watching Who from the very beginning back in 1963!

I was alive then but Doctor Who didn't show up in the states until many years after that. PBS started showing the Tom Baker episodes in the 70's and then started showing the earlier doctors (before Tom Baker) after the Tom Baker episodes started doing well. My favorite early doctor was Jon Pertwee although I liked Peter Davison and Tom Baker.

I'm probably one of the few DW fans, or maybe the only one, who doesn't want anymore cybermen-focused episodes. Daleks are getting pretty close, too.

Yeah, you're the only one.

I don't want another lame Cyber story...

I HOPE like hell that they've got the money to redo the Cybermen design, AND make a big point of them being the Mondas Cybermen instead of Cybus ones...

Frankly, I don't think the new era birth story really set up the Cybermen to become what they have appeared to be in the new series - roaming around the universe in massive ships etc, and the Cyber King of The Next Doctor...

(Yes, I know MOFF has stated/suggested that for the last few appearances they are in fact Mondas Cybermen... but it's pretty hard to buy that when they haven't paid for a redesign...)

I have high hopes actually, given Gaiman's track record... that we may get a good Cyber story this time...

I'd be happy to see the Cybermen back if they're moved back towards their original concept a dwindling number of diseased, wraith-like figures sacrificing their humanity for survival are more interesting and much more creepy than armies of big shiny robot types stomping around. The new version I could happily go without for a while.

Sort it out, Gaiman.

The quotes that he loved Moonbase etc certainly gives rise to hope...

Agreed, hopefully the Cybermen go back to their their Mondas-ian (?) roots. Tomb of the Cybermen with Patrick Troughton was one of my favs actually, for some reason... and hey, who am I kidding, the Tom Baker one where Adric dies is a classic.

From some on-set pictures it appears that the Cybermen have a bit of a new look for the Gaiman episode...

They at least look a bit less chunky and clunky than the current versions.

First picture of the new TARDIS interior


seems very simple by comparison to the last one.
1970s style?

One thing that you immediately notice is that the practice of using junk on the console a theme since the series returned looks to have ended.

Also, the previous two console rooms have used very warm colours whereas this looks much darker and colder. An indication perhaps of the Doctor's post-Pond mood?
