    September 1st, 2012 - 8:52pm

    What did everyone think of the slightly altered opening title sequence ?


      September 1st, 2012 - 8:58pm

      didnt like it

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      September 1st, 2012 - 9:01pm

      A bit messy, but it wasn’t bad. I liked the Dalek spheres on the logo. It was a nice touch. 🙂

    • Whovian

      September 2nd, 2012 - 10:29am

      It is quite good, I think. They’ve made the colours more vibrant. But I think that they shouldn’t have changed it.
      (That’s my opinion you don’t have to read it.)

      oh im so scared[that what the robots say in another trailer

  • John Smith

    Just a quick question, who’s the actor who’s supposed to
    play Rory’s Dad? I heard that it was the same actor that played Ron Weasly’s Dad? Please, PLEASE answer my question!

    • Proffesor When

      August 26th, 2012 - 10:09am

      Mark Williams. And yes, he is Ron’s Dad! GO POTTER DOCTOR WHO YEAH WHAT

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    August 24th, 2012 - 7:52am

    Mark Williams is probably best known for playing Dave Listers Danish drinking buddy Olaf Peterson in Red Dwarf. Rimmer described him as a ‘Danish moron’.

    So basically, Rory’s father, who is being played by Mark, is a Danish Moron 😀

    I wonder thou if they’ll mention about Rory’s dad at the Wedding back in Series 5, cos we never saw him, only Amy’s parents [and possibly Rory’s mum].

    • ben roberts

      August 24th, 2012 - 3:51pm

      You’re forgetting…Mr Weasly!

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 23rd, 2012 - 9:10pm

      Who or what is Lestrade?

    • Give me a Dalek any day

      August 23rd, 2012 - 9:13pm

      Lestrade is Rupert Graves’ chracter in Sherlock! 😉 Although, apparently his characters name in Doctor Who is Riddell. 🙂

    • The Time Lord of Doom

      August 23rd, 2012 - 9:14pm

    August 23rd, 2012 - 8:11pm

    Moffat says that this episode is going to be more of a ‘light hearted’ episode. But still, Dinosaurs, Egyptian Queens, who COULD WANT ANYTHING MORE!

      September 4th, 2012 - 7:38pm

      At the time, The Doctor is visting Nefertiti, but when he leaves to the dinosaur ship, she comes too because she likes The Doctor.

  • Give me a Dalek any day

    August 23rd, 2012 - 6:05pm

    “Dinosaurs! On a spaceship!”

    I can’t help but keep saying that when I think of this episode! 😀
