    i thought they were going to address the 13 lives rule in one of the episodes.

    they will find a way around it. i dont think it will end at 13.

    sorry, this is a bit off topic but, well we r now in the 11th incarnation of the doctor and as any smart whovian knows a time lord can only regenerate 12 times, so i just wanted to hear peoples thoughts on whether Dr Who should end after this?

    the thing about him turning in2 a girl, i read that on Dr Who rumours page, they said the exact same about the 2008 xmas special , so its probably not true

    πŸ™ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ dr who will be back for an xmas episode in 6 months!

    SaME DR WHO HAS ENDED now πŸ™ but the new season will start soon! :)!

    I thought that when David Tennant left, I thought that Matt Smith wouldn’t be brilliant, at first, when he first did his debut episode, I thought he was a bit cokoo, but that’s due to the regenerative engery, building up in his body. “This years christmas episode will be the most christmasy one yet!” said Steven Moffat, when asked about the aftermath of series 5, on a interview.
    I’d give 2010 dr who, a thumbs up! 10/111110 for me! πŸ™‚
    SJA episode titles have been reaveled, (on this site), and Luke Smith will leave the series, seen on photos on utube.
    Rory was never erased because the “cracks” closed, so now the “Auton Rory” never existed because the Alliance was never formed. Amy FINALLY got married, I think the Doctor kind of parked the TARDIS, badly at first in the wedding reception, but then moved it to Amy’s house.
    If the Doctor is real, I’d tell him,”You, cannot DANCE!” Series 6, should be outstanding for audiences across the UK, but whose voice was it in the TARDIS, saying, “Silence will fall”, many have speculated that it may be the Dream Lord, or the Valeyard (from the classic series).
    It was rumored Omega would appear in this years finale, (he was an evil guy who could make himself look like other people, who was in the classic series, oldies time).

    See you later!

    They haven’t filmed the 2010 christmas thing yet, (that is why there was no next time trailer), the series this year was amazing. For the 2011 series Rory williams will have a ‘much bigger role’ says head writer Steven Moffat. Karen Gillan is returning for the new series which I hope will make the show better, because without her the show isn’t the same. Matt Smith will be in next year’s dr who series too, which means this is the first time in the revied dr who series where the main cast don’t leave.

    River Song will return because she said, “But I’m but that’s when Everything Changes” She’ll be in series 6 and we’ll find out who River Song really is!

    The Doctor will not die in SJA, Stephen Moffat owns The Doctor in his writing. It is Russell T. Davies who writes SJA and he is not allowed to kill him off SJA otherwise his disappearance off Doctor Who will be a wonder, however he can kill off Sarah Jane and he probably will one day in a different series.

    Absolutely fantastic, the timey wimey stuff was just on the right side of complex but still perfectly easy to follow. Well paced, great characterisation, brilliant ending, and the stone dalek was awesome.

    Well done team Moff!

    A perfect way to end the series a true fairy tail ending too bad the doctor could’nt keep his mop and hat they rather suited him

    I bet because they usually have 3 or 4 returning enemies they’ll be:




    Clockwork Robots

    lots of my friends saw this on recorded tv/ iplayer – again i nearly missed this ep but made it home at time, 15 mins before the airing.

  • Callum Metcalfe

    June 27th, 2010 - 12:32pm

    River Song back in series 6 and aswell the cracks are back

    The TARDIS family is reunited! You know, I forgot to say “YOU JAMMY DODGER” when I watched The Big Bang on iPlayer today, so I’ll say it now.


    So, new adventures lie in store for the family, once fianceΓ¨, fianceΓ¨ and pilot, now husband, wife and pilot! I’m sure “The Big Bang” (or “The Big Bang 2”) satisfied the hunger of many fans. Now all we’ve got to know is how River and the Doctor got married, and how River killed the Doctor…

    After last weeks episode, I had high hopes. Boy, what a dissapointment. It was no Doomsday or The End Of Time, thats for sure. Too confusing and didnt make any sense. What a let down. Im a life long fan but if I didnt understand it, how is Joe Public going to follow it for a whole hour. Shame Amy and Rory werent killed off. Find the both of them annoying now. Amy is certainly one of the worst companions and shouts non stop. I do like Matt but maybe the season arcs should be scrapped and just go back to normal non-linking stories because this crack in time/silence will fall was a total let down. Bring back RTD. Moffat is not up to scratch. Season 6 has got to improve…

    For Amy and Rory was The Pandorica Opens/Big Bang real or was it just all the series

  • Callum Metcalfe

    June 27th, 2010 - 11:04am

    It’s because of the world cup probably

    The viewing figures should be up alot by the end of the week. But the reason that the OVERNIGHT figures are 5.1 million is because people have iplayer and they can just record it. But seeing as this is series 1 / series 5, its just like series 1 with Christopher eleceston but the viewing figures are higher for this series. πŸ˜€ I love doctor who!!!
