    Love the pond page, absolutley brilliant, but you put his near the bottom:
    You think you can just bring your dad along without asking? I’m not a taxi service, you know.
    Amy

    It was the doctor that said this not Amy!

    my theory is rory will be touched by an angel and sent back in time look at the issue date on his name tag hes older then he looks this would also explain why hes not suprised when he 1st enters the tardis type in on google images “11th hour rory name tag” and look at the issue date

      that sounds like a good theory as steven moffat did say that there was a clue in the 11th hour

    I just watched the 11th Hour so i wonder what will be explained

    Where did the extra staircase go

    Who was the shadow passing the window

    Why did little Amy hear the Tardis sound whilst sat waiting in the garden

    Why did Mrs Meldrew recognise The Doctor

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 9:05am

      1. Good question

      2. Matt Smith! It was meant to be the Doctor going outside to pick up the sleeping Amelia (watch the in-vision commentary for the episode to find out more), but we can assume it was probably Prisoner Zero.

      3. It was probably just Amy dreaming. We see this before Amy wakes up (and the TARDIS is outside), so it must have just been a dream.

      4. Amy had grown up telling everyone stories about the Raggedy Doctor. She must’ve just recognised him from drawings etc. Mind you, though, she did have the same brooch River wore in The Big Bang. 😯

    • booboo

      September 29th, 2012 - 9:07am

      There is something in tonight’s episode to do with Amy’s exit which has something to with the 11th Hour, just wondering if its one of these

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 9:10am

      Yes, heard about that. It could still be one of those. I reckon it might be the staircase since there is no explanation on that. Yet. πŸ˜‰

    • Mr Evil Fez

      September 29th, 2012 - 9:47am

      The one that said ‘I just watched the 11th Hour so I wonder what will be explained’ etc. In the place where your name is displayed, it says Booboo, but it does not have your Tardis picture.

      why were there no ducks on the duck pond lol

    • booboo

      yes that one as well

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 11:08am

      The ducks in the duck pond were the cause of the Crack. Steven Moffat said that the final scene of Series 5 was supposed to be set in the village green in Leadworth and the final shot would be some ducks back in the duck pond. πŸ™‚

      Although there could be a surprisingly shocking twist. I don’t know. Who knows what the Grand Moff has planned? Not long now! πŸ˜€

      there was also something about Rory’s nurse badge i think

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 11:11am

      And I was meant to write “The ducks in the duck pond were victims of the Crack.” 😳

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 11:11am

      Yes, Rory’s nurse badge was issued in 19990.

    • That Cherub over there

      September 29th, 2012 - 11:12am

      Sorry, 1990. I can’t type today. πŸ˜‰

      September 29th, 2012 - 11:13am

      just watched the 11th hour again my theory is rory will be touched by an angel and sent back in time to the 11th hour because on his nurse name tag he is older then he should be this would also explain why he is not suprised the first time he gose in the tardis look at the dates http://www.gophoto.it/view.php?i=http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100404160030/tardis/images/1/1a/Rory's_ID.jpg#.UGbJpI1lS1c the issue date

    • the astronaut of death

      September 29th, 2012 - 12:22pm

      yeah but on the info on this ep it said he is taken back to 1938

    • Boodleoo

      September 29th, 2012 - 2:09pm

      Random theory I think Rorys a timelord.

    • Boodleoo

      September 29th, 2012 - 2:15pm

      This is one of many thought up in my head. It would mean a different explanation to River being part timelord rather than being born in flight and rorys name date. But thats just one of many possible outcomes for me anyway, but any theorys right unless you can prove it wrong. Like I could say a quarq could kill rory and amy then just leave it’s not wrong until we see the ep.:D (not like that would happen)

    • That Cherub over there

      Looks like you’ve heard those silly “Rory is the Master” theories. πŸ˜‰

      booboo, only 20 mins to go and you probably won’t read this, but why has NOBODY ASKED ABOUT THE DUCK POND? :O
      we will find out what will be answerd in 20 mins! so exited (squeels like a fangirl)!

    I’ll be watching ‘The Eleventh Hour’ today at 11am on DVD before tonight’s farewell to Amy and Rory Williams.

    They’ve been brilliant new series companions, anyone who says they are rubbish must be a fan of the following unlikeable companions –

    1)Adric
    2)Melany ‘Mel’ Bush
    3)Martha Jones
    4)Melody Pond a.k.a. River ‘Spoilers/Hello Sweetie’ Song.

    Bring on Jenna-Louise Coleman thou as Clara Oswin, she made me laugh when she played Oswin Oswald in ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ with her flirty behavior [“Pop ya shirt off, quick as ya like”] πŸ˜€

    I’ll miss Amy and Rory, Amy’s my favorite new series companion… πŸ˜₯ But, as much as I hate to say this, I will be happy to see Moffat finally letting them go. Also, the Angels are a good monster, and it will add a scarier twist to the episode, I’m sure
