What Did You Think Of Day of The Moon?

What Did You Think Of Day of The Moon?

Now that the second episode of Series 6 has aired, what did you think of Day of The Moon? Cast your vote on this and previous episodes in the panel below.

A couple of pictures that pose some very big questions…

Just who is this….

and… now she is

and now she isn’t…

    You should do a page of all the questions yet to be answered…like the girl, the spacesuit, the doctor’s death, amy’s pregnancy, eye-patch lady, the strange other TARDIS thingy and the silence coz i don’t think that episode was really related to the plot arc in the last series i mean how has silence fallen? And really what are the silence and why do they want to kill the doctor?

    • simon w

      May 1st, 2011 - 1:46pm

      A very good point there they should have a page about the arc off this season

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 6:51am

      agree, like a whole theories page where we can discuss it and the one with the most supporting evidence get placed at the top of the thread, and all major ones below, so we don’t get repeats (as much)

    • MoonGirl

      May 2nd, 2011 - 8:29pm

      If you re-watch series 5 you can see the characters (Amy, Doctor etc.) shaking their heads and looking startled as though they saw the silence monsters. 🙂

  • Jeramy Simpson

    May 1st, 2011 - 1:31pm

    hey, small spoiler, but look at this, and tell me that doesn’t not answer the whole little kid regenerating thing. Its imdb, so no funny business, also curious, why has no one else posted this link?

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 1st, 2011 - 1:34pm

      also she is set to appear at the same time as that other lady that we saw for a second; in the room.

      so anyone else thinking that that lady could be the mother?

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 1st, 2011 - 1:36pm

      me again,
      just off topic, but wouldn’t it be weird if amy was the mother of her mother?

      not suggesting it, just thinking that would be weird

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 3:43pm

      there’s one thing I don’t get where’s Amys parents because they came back in the big bang

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 3:47pm

      @Jeramy Simpson they did a similar thing in red dwarf when lister was him on farther and his girlfrend was his mother

    Come on ppl think about it. If the little girl is a Time-Lord then the Doctor would have know about her think back the Doctor did say that he could sence other Time-Lord’s. In Utopia when Yana became the Master the Doctor was aware the moment Yana changed into the Master. So the little girl might have the ability to regenerate but is not a Time-Lord

  • Forss

    May 1st, 2011 - 12:23pm

    The girl could be the rani because in the door to her bedroom we see the epyepatch lady who could have used the chamelion circuit to hide her tardis as the door, and seeming as its the girls room it could be her in the future?

    Just a thought.

  • 123abc

    maybe amy is the doctors daughter and the little girl regeneretes into amilia pond and amy is pregnant she gives birth to the doctors grand daughter, who is in an earlier episode in earlier series, then amy regererates and becomes jenny from the doctors daaughter episode prohaps river and the doc are amys parents
    what do you think boooboo, i dont want this to happen though

    • booboo

      May 1st, 2011 - 11:26am

      I dont thinks that it

    • superdalek

      May 1st, 2011 - 11:31am

      Whoever that little girl is I hope she’s either The Rani or Romana.

    • doctor who lover

      May 1st, 2011 - 11:32am

      probly amys child was in 20th century but was not present at the time but the girl is the doctors daughter

  • Uncle Tommy

    May 1st, 2011 - 11:12am

    Wouldn’t it be great if it was Rose and her Doctor’s (the double) child and it’s stuck in our iniverse trying to get back to theirs?

    a bit random i know but the only other possible parents i can think of are:

    Donna (Doctop Donna)

    But i think they’re all too obviuse


    May 1st, 2011 - 10:17am

    booboo I put a link to who the eye patch lady is and I did say it was a spoiler so can you tell me what awaiting moderation means

    • booboo

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:25am

      its there now, we are having terrible terrible trouble with spam so any post with a link and others with certain words gets put on hold so i can check it.

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:30am

      right thanks its a bit suprising who she is

    • dr who fan

      May 1st, 2011 - 11:55am

      I am really confusion

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 11:59am

      why are you confused

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:46am

    Whoever the little girl is, we can all agree on this . . . . . .

    She most definatly is . . . . . .


    • Dktimelord

      May 1st, 2011 - 8:45am

      you mean susan, the doctors grandaughter.that makes sense

    • silence will fall

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:25am

      the child is amys daughter and is a time lord so she be the doctors daughter

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      May 1st, 2011 - 4:08pm

      DK Time Lord – I was intending that the little girl is Susan, i was making a reference to the title of the Pilot episode of Doctor Who [ An Unearthly Child, 1963 ].

      Silence will fall – Why should the girl be the Doctors Daughter ?, she could be from Gallifrey, and not be someone we are allready familiar with.

  • Messager

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:39am

    Booboo when will the overnight ratings for Day of the Moon come up?

    • booboo

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:34am

      should be next week, there out a lot quicker than they used to be

  • DoctorWho4Eva

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:37am

    the first 2 episdoes of Series 6 are better than all of series 5 put together.

    • JFrank

      May 1st, 2011 - 1:11pm

      agreed completely. I was really disappointed with series 5, I expected a lot more from Moffat. But I did think 6 would be better – and I have been proved absolutly right. Day of the Moon is quite possibly my favorite episode ever, at least since Silence in the Libary. Finally the Moff is giving us what we want!

    • lilixu

      May 1st, 2011 - 5:55pm

      but I still very like epi about Van Gogh, maybe coz I like Van Gogh

  • Aged

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:08am

    Who is the Girl, and why can she regenerate? Also, at the beginning of the impossible astronaut, the doctor knows who is in it, but that’s the doctor from the future, who knows all about the things him and river have done, so that still leaves the question, why did the little girl kill the future doctor?

    • DoctorWho4Eva

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:30am

      I agree. Only Time Lords can regenerate, so why can that girl unless….DUM! DUM! DUM!

    • DWfan

      May 1st, 2011 - 8:09am

      Well we know for sure the little girl doesnt kill him as she is no longer in the suit. I think in my opinion the little girl is the Rani as the Rani hasnt died in Doctor Who!!

    • DW Fan

      May 1st, 2011 - 5:18pm

      DoctorWho4Eva, their are other species that can regenerate too.

  • Dr Huw

    May 1st, 2011 - 4:55am

    Maybe the little girl is the Doctor and River’s daughter? Past, future mixed up blahrahrah. Amy might’ve just been holding her in the photo, who knows.
    And what was creepy eyepatch lady about? Just dreaming? Definitely scared me more than the Silence.

    • DoctorWho4Eva

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:33am

      yes. i want to know who that freaky eye-patch lady is as well. That girl might belong to Amy and……..THE DOCTOR! which is why she has the power to be human and regenerate:

  • Blue Box

    May 1st, 2011 - 2:47am

    In my mind theres no question the little girl is some kind of time lord. If mine and some other peoples suggestion that the little girl is a time lord then really the father has to have been the Dr.

    I like the theory that River is Amy’s daughter. This little girl (If Amy’s) has to be half human half time lord. I reckon that the girls regeneration leads to her being River song now this is were the half human stuff comes in unlike time lords humans age maybe this is why River looks older then Amy.

    She said she had Darker days coming for her, Her past is his future maybe she already Killed the Dr. in her childhood. Which is why she is in Jail ?

    • Sonic Lipstick

      May 2nd, 2011 - 4:11pm

      love that idea, makes sense as River never admits why she’s in jail. whether or not she has a biological connection to the doctor or amy, the idea that she’s in jail for killing the doctor is good.
      Also if the girl is Amy’s, remember what amy said that she would be worried if the baby came out all weird coz of being in the tardis, maybe to baby just absorbed the tardis energy, like at the end of series one, coz that doctor regenerated because of absorbing the tardis power.
      just some more ideas to throw into the mix


    May 1st, 2011 - 1:33am

    I honestly worry that these more complicated storylines may drive the younger viewers away and they do make up a large portion of the viewing audience

    • booboo

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:37am

      This does seem to be an issue, i hope its all explained every clearly

    • Jason doctorwhoone

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:43am

      Alot of Children are very very bright, and im sure they are following the storylines just as well as Adult Viewers.

    • The Dark Side of the Moon

      May 1st, 2011 - 8:39am

      Look…I watched DW when Tom Baker was in the hot seat at the tender age of 8…I didnt have a Scooby Doo what was going on, but I watched it week in and week out becuase I loved being scared….as most kids do. I dont think the average 8 year old is talking about the plot in the school playground…they’re all re-enacting what the monsters do.

    • simon w

      May 1st, 2011 - 1:07pm

      @ The dark side of the moon I know what you mean I watch it week in week out and when its not on tv I watch the Video’s and Dvd’s for the past stories. I started watching it when i was 4 the first story i saw was Genesis of the Daleks way back in 1975 with Tom Baker as the Doctor and Lis Sladen as Sarah Jane ( R.I.P ). Which I’m lucky to have both off the Autographs

  • Rob

    May 1st, 2011 - 12:01am

    The little girl has some timelord stuff in her , hense the regeneration.

    The silence was trying to build a TARDIS and if you remember back to the lodger , that TARDIS was looking for the correct pilot.

    The silence needed a timelord to become to the pilot of the new tardis they were creating so they had to keep her alive so they had the suit made.

    Why they need a tardis and who the girl actually is though is still a mystery until future episodes.

    • DoctorWho4Eva

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:34am

      which is probably why the girl went round saying: “Help Me” like the Avatars did in ‘The Lodger’

    • Rob

      May 1st, 2011 - 4:41pm

      Probally. See, it makes sense =D

  • The Ood sisters

    April 30th, 2011 - 11:04pm

    When Amy is discussing her ‘pregnancy’ with the Dr she asks if the baby will be affected by her time travelling? And not because the Dr is the father. Rory hears this conversation and is not bothered by it so we don’t think the Dr could possibly be the father. We think the little girl could be the Dr’s daughter from the same titled episode (Georgia Moffat series 4).
    We love River as a character and think she makes the episodes really exciting but don’t know who she really is.

    • Anonymous

      May 1st, 2011 - 3:49am

      But we saw the Georgia Moffet character be “born” from the DNA machine. I think the new EP has enough of his own head-scratching twists in mind and cannot imagine that he is going back and retcon-ing the Russel Davies years.

    • [email protected]

      May 1st, 2011 - 8:55am

      Jenny probably will be back, eventually, but I think it’s safe to assume:
      A) The Doctor is NOT the father of Amy’s baby (Rory, of course, is)
      B) River is not the Rani, Master, Amy, Rose, Donna, The Doctor, Amy’s child, or any other previously seen character.
      C) The same goes for the Time Girl.
      Happy Speculating 😀

    • MoonGirl

  • Nigel M

    April 30th, 2011 - 9:02pm

    River is in prison for admittedly “killing the best man she ever met”. This would make sense if River IS the little girl in the astronaut suit and kills the Doctor. She knows all about the Doctor and can pilot the Tardis, so is she a time lord as well ?

    I think she is Amy’s daughter. But who is the father ? After all, Rory is plastic !

    • doctor stu

      April 30th, 2011 - 9:25pm

      i think the doctor and amy were doing a lot more then collecting thermo couplings, i think the little girl is Amys daughter and the doctor is THE FATHER!!!!!!!!!

    • booboo

      Rory is a Nestene duplicate, he’s not human so how could he be the father ?

    • benjiboodleoo

      April 30th, 2011 - 10:56pm

      He’s human now because when the Doctor drove the pandorica into the burning tardis Amy remembered Rory as his former self restoring him to human.

      So does everyone think that all of the effects from the cracks sucking events out of history were undone? I’m really enjoying watching these new episodes, but I hope Moffet will leave somethings “settled” because the constant state of flux for pretty much everything gives me a headache. Then again, maybe that’s Moffet’s overarching theme, time is constantly in flux and history can keep changing. It’s an interesting conceit, but I think it makes for frustrating television if you can NEVER be sure that what you know isn’t going to change.

    Why was it rivers and the doctors last kiss? Was River like years older than the River in the last episodes in season 5? So does the 1008 year old doctor still die or not?

    • TARDIS

      isnt it eleven hundred and three

    • MRGBH

      April 30th, 2011 - 11:22pm

      Becuase the Doctor and River are moving in opposite direction in time. So his first kiss with her will be her last kiss with him.

    • Anonymous

      May 2nd, 2011 - 2:06pm

      so are we thinking that day of the moon is the last time river sees the 11th doctor? The thing is, in SILENCE in the library River knew everything about her and the doctor because she had lived it. But in Pandorica Opens, she didnt know about the crash of the Byzantium. its all wibbly wobbly… but surely River would have known she hadnt kissed the doctor yet?? its quite a big detail. unless time is being rewritten somehow?
