A couple of pictures that pose some very big questions…

Just who is this….

    -what happened to the Tardis after the Doctor was killedin ep 1. The (older version) of the dr sent our invitations and must have shown up with the Tardis, but what happened to it, shouldn’t River have wondered about that
    – Euver could not have killed the Doctor and been in the spacesuit because she would have remembered that she killed him and stopped herself from doing so at the lake

    • Jeramy Simpson

      look at my post, talked about it

      the doctor was driving a car, the tardis was never seen, the also corresponds to the part where he tries wine for the first time, two things out of the ordinary.

      I think that the doctor has been stuck on earth for a while, without his tardis. Maybe his tardis died, and that is why he gave up running? because he is said to feel its death.

      idk, theories

      Or the car was the TARDIS? He might have got the chameleon circuit working. River could have killed the Doctor, if it happened later in her time stream. They meet out of order, remember.

      i think that river is in the space suit and she killed the doctor because why do u think she is in a security prison because she killed the doctor

    I loved the creepy ‘Graystark Hall Orphange’ childrens home, the actual building is near where I live 🙂

  • McGann will always be The Doctor.

    May 2nd, 2011 - 10:33pm

    BOO BOO, I must ask you to verify WHAT YOU SAID:

    Hour long? But the BBC changed it to 46 minute timeslot? Well now, I DON’T know about that. Was this a printed mistake, an error with the publicity or something? ❓

    I have not yet gottentosee Day of the Moon, but it seems to be a very unusually dark story, one that takes a change of direction from the season opener. Alot of things are left unexplained, it seems. ❗ As for the Silence, I dont care how much of a menace they may seem, because the Doctor WILL find some kind of way to overcome them. You can expect him to catch on, where others have not.

      The BBC Release the schedules about 16 days prior to transmission and Day of the moon was listed as on between 6.00pm and 7.00pm which is why people thought it was an hour, they updated the schedule 6.00-6.45, they have done the same for Curse of the black spot and the doctors wife – in other words when they first release the schedule they haven’t finalised where they are going to put it giving a false impression of the length of the episode.

    yh but dont we see amy ponds mom on her wedding day waking her up

  • Alex Galpin

    May 2nd, 2011 - 4:45pm

    I have been thinking. I reckon that the little girl in the astronaut costume is River Song and that Amy and Rory is Rivers Mum and Dad. This makes sense because the doctor and river are traveling in opposite directions. This also makes sense because in the episode “The Impossible Astronaut”, The Doctor says to River, ‘Who did u kill?’ And in another episode, river says she killed the best man she knew…She killed The Doctor. And she regenerated because she is part time lord because she will get married to the doctor in the future. I hope you have time to read this.

  • Jeramy Simpson

    May 2nd, 2011 - 3:40pm

    me again, just re watch the episodes and picked up a few things.

    One, i can’t ever remember seeing the doctor drive a car instead of the tardis (start ep1)

    The sudden sickness caused by the silence, are they causing them to get pregnant? are they pregnant to the silence babies, thats why it disappeared on the scan?

    River talks about her first meeting with the doctor, saying she was a young child and very impressionable.

    River says to amy i think (can’t remember when) that there is a worst day coming for her

    I think that there is something that happened in the van gogh episode that links to this new season. Can’t remember what, it just rings a bell

    another speculation is that the silence are timelord relics, not really existing?
    paradox like, explaining the memory loss

    also the doctor asked the question why all of a sudden man kind decided to go to the moon, it was answered vaguely by the need for a space suit. but i have a feeling that there was more.

    and for some reason the name Elisabeth Sladen keeps poping in my head, i’m not sure why, it just rings a bell with the whole overall story

    Now finally bringing me to, what if the doctor has been stuck on earth for the last 200 years or so?

    There was more question and hints but i forget already. must take notes next time (also forgive my grammar, the chair i’m using makes it really hard to type)

  • Connor Connaughton

    it was a rely good episode but why were people saying it was going to be an hour long when it was 46 min episode.

    • booboo

      May 2nd, 2011 - 8:29am

      The original BBC Press release showed it to be in an hour timeslot – then they changed it, they have done the same every week now

  • V

    May 2nd, 2011 - 8:19am

    All I know is that I really hope Canton appears again.

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:21pm

      the doctor says that he’ll see him again. end of the episode

  • TardisBlue

    May 2nd, 2011 - 3:04am

    Maybe Rory is River’s son.

    They both have blond hair.

    Their names both begin with a R. Parents will often give their child the same initial is them.

    No one knows anything about Rory

    Rory’s last name is Williams. Williams is like Smith.Very common.

    Karen Gillian (Amy) says she has a throwaway line. Maybe its when Amy says you just dropped out of sky she says it was just a expression but maybe it meant more then she knew.

    When Riversong went to prison she could of dropped her son of in a town. In fact Amy’s town.

    Vorg (see wiki article: )could be the father .It said he has a son. Mixed up Riversong’s name spells Siren Vorg.

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 8:40am

      you my friend, just got my head doing backflips and spilling with ideas. Thank you, now i won’t be able to sleep XD

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 8:58am

      ok. so adding another level of creepy to this, but they did a live show where vorg’s son was there.

      bit too coincidental for me

      Here are the links:
      vorg’s son–>

      the live show –>

    • dr who / me

      May 2nd, 2011 - 10:26am

      but how is that possible vorg is not a being he must be using a biodamper or somthing and river is probably the dr’s mother or wife or death bringer lol

    Fascinating episode, very interwoven with references to the Silence in flashback to previous (last series)episodes. The aliens were very menacing and curious why they were wearing suits, seemed a bit incongrous but made them very menacing. The little girl at the end is I think River Song, so perhaps there are two time lords? As for the picture of Amy now I’m stuck

    • STETSONS!!

      May 8th, 2011 - 5:28pm

      I Think the picture of amy with the baby the baby i think is river !

  • terriermon

    May 1st, 2011 - 11:43pm

    i think the regenerating girl is susan, it makes a lot of sense cos it is set in the 60’s and thats when she was around, and also time lords stay children for 100 years or something near that who else thinks so?

    • paul cox

      May 2nd, 2011 - 2:46am

      i doubt the little girl is susan as in the classic series susan is aged around 15 years old in human years, after all she went to a secondary school.

      I think this little girl is something different and not river song either! maybe there are more gallifreyans around than we thought?

    • Doctor Who Star 100

      May 2nd, 2011 - 2:51pm

      it could be jenny.

    • Nik Tek

      May 2nd, 2011 - 4:44pm

      Look guys, this is just a theory but it could be amy’s daughter.

      First, she is pregnant

      second, when the doctor checks whether she is or not, it is flashing between two options, so maybe the child is not fully human?

      next, proof of this arises as the suit was designed for HUMANS, but she regenerated like a time lord, which could mean half human half time lord. Which means Doctor + Amy.

      Next, the girl had a picture of amy in her room. Could it be a picture of her lost mother? Maybe that is why she is in the orphanage, and that is why the silence were looking for her, the daughter of a time lord.

      lastly, she did not tell Rory. Is this because it is not Rory’s daughter? She tells the doctor though, maybe because it is his daughter?

      And finally, she did say that she spent a lot of time with him when they were travelling alone.

      So there is some proof that it is her daughter


    May 1st, 2011 - 10:42pm

    just found out that tw Miracle Day is going to be like last season with day 1 day 2 etc but theres nine eps

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 5:31am

      @Tardis, you agree, that there should be another page put up where all the gossip and clues and chat can be done, because this page will go out of date next episode

    • TARDIS

      May 2nd, 2011 - 10:20am

      im a bit sad that its all one story i wish it could be like season 1 and 2

  • Homer J Simpson

    May 1st, 2011 - 10:36pm

    Why does the child have to be Amy’s, she could have had her photo taken with the baby when it was born, the Doctors & Rivers maybe. Stephen Moffit likes miss- direction

    • Doctor Who Star 100

      May 2nd, 2011 - 2:54pm

      thank you you agree!! river and the doctor’s kid!!! amy may just be holding her. or it could be the girl’s bro or sis for all we know there could be a whole family of time lords out there!

  • jedijim

    May 1st, 2011 - 9:50pm

    Here’s a wrench(spanner) to throw into the works; anyone remember the Minyans? How about Mawdryn?? Time Lords are not the exclusive holders of Regeneration!
    On another note, Rumor hath it we will see the return of Jenny, though played by a different actor than Georgia Moffet.

    • Mr pond

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:14pm

      Amy could regenerate onto Jenny

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:32pm

      look what i found

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 10:33pm

      look what i found also

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:52am

      @mr pond have you even seen the episode where Jenny was created? or the start of the last season?

  • Angel Tim

    May 1st, 2011 - 9:21pm

    At first, I thought the person peeping through the door was river. They do look alike.

  • Confused

    May 1st, 2011 - 8:35pm

    I think river being amy’s daughter is to obvious. I an also not keen on the rani theories as I feel modern viewer viewers will not get that. Clearly river and the doctor will be intimate in some way. After all she can fly the TARDIS and has (had) a sonic screw driver. I recall in the astronaut episode that when river tries to shoot the astronaut she then says “of course” which I think means she cannot kill the astronaut as it is in fact her. I also think there are still unanswered questions about Amy pond from previous series.

  • WHOfan4eva

    May 1st, 2011 - 8:25pm

    I was thinking maybe: Amy and the Doctor got together (they were very ‘close’ in Flesh and Stone) and the child could be Jenny, the doctor’s daughter…..

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:47am

      i’m thinking that amy could be the doctor daughter, explains why he feels a close connection but not ‘that’ close 😀

    • Doctor Who Star 100

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:06pm

      @ jeremy simpson
      that one’s new 2 me but it’s a good idea!

  • harold saxon

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:58pm

    Interesting reading IMDB about Caitlin Blackwood being listed for 2 eps ,that’s complex but remember young amelia was mixed up in the crack in time silence thing!i have her on twitter ,many ppl do but wuld be cheeky to ask her.

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:46am

      already pointed it out 😀 also so is jenny, she is to appear the ep before young pond along with that chick in the nursery 😀

      look at all the imdb info on who’s in each ep

      see if you can pick up the link (no hints)

  • harold saxon

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:44pm

    amy pregnant or not? more to that than meets the eye!would be cool if the master was mixed up in all this,i don’t think we have seen the last of him either!we could be wron of course but the child regenerating like that is definately a TIMELORD as it was the same as when the doctor & the master regenerated!
    Still think river is a timelord?mmm i like this silence will fall thing! it goes back to SILENCE in the library!

  • paulpebbles

    May 1st, 2011 - 7:33pm

    i like the idea that the girl used stolen energy to regenerate.

    fyi :the bbc do not have the rights to the rani character

  • DR.0MG!

    May 1st, 2011 - 5:28pm


    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:43am

      not necessarily, the child could be a paradox, not really being able to exist. like what would happen if she was her own grandmother (just a thought)

      or something similar, like the fate of wether she get pregnant or not is still unsure because of the fathers current position, eg if the father decides not to show up and get funky the child wont exist. if you get what i mean

  • Kat

    May 1st, 2011 - 5:19pm

    My theories.

    #1- the girl is amy’s daughter but was impregnated by the silence with timelord DNA for evil.

    #2- the girl is the master’s daughter, not really sure how but I feel it ain’t the last of him.

    #3- the girl is river song, a younger version of her, just when she tells rory that the doctor knew all about her when she was just a little girl makes me think so.

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 5:45pm

      river is human its confirmed

    • Nigel M

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:12pm

      Correct, River died in “Forest of the Dead”, she didn’t regenerate then so she must be human.

    • Kat

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:50pm

      Oh okay that’s that one crossed off then.

    • TARDIS

      May 1st, 2011 - 9:13pm

      and its one of the spoilers

    • XXcyberlekXX

      May 2nd, 2011 - 12:05am

      or the little girl could be jenny??
      and it wont be rivers daughter

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:40am

      wrong, sorry but river was basically incinerated, only thing left was her suit and screw driver, so therefore if she was timelord she would have died anyway

      also the little girl can’t be jenny as timelords don’t regenerate as a child.
      also chances jenny is set to return in ep 7 or 8
      look at imdb, also jenny is played by a different actor so that means that she has regenerated already

      imdb holds the answer to everything

    • Doctor Who Star 100

      May 2nd, 2011 - 3:11pm

      @ nigel m
      river said 2 the dr in silence in the library it will kill both ur hearts stone dead so wouldn’t it have killed both of hers if she was a time lord?

      @ jeremy simpson jenny will return in a good man goes 2 war.

    • Alex Galpin

      May 2nd, 2011 - 4:49pm

      She could have mixed with the doctor when they snogged in prison. She might be half time-lord…

  • doctor who #1 fan

    May 1st, 2011 - 4:20pm

    One other thing why would the doctor check if amy was pregnent

    1. he likes cheaking people if thier pregnent

    2. our he is worried that it could be his baby

    • roo slitheen

      May 1st, 2011 - 7:20pm

    • Doctor Who Star 100

  • doctor who #1 fan

    May 1st, 2011 - 3:42pm

    The little girl is amy ponds daughter but its not rorys its the doctors because she regenerated but i think the little girl is a main character how is coming up but i think all of our questions will be ansewerd on a good man goes to war and who the heck is jim the fish????????????????????????????

  • CLR

    May 1st, 2011 - 3:27pm

    OK, I know you have prob said this already buuuut remember when tennant was about and he had his dna taken and they made that blonde girl who done a runner… anyway maybe thats the girl who regened at the end!! they certanly know how to keep us wondering!!!

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 2nd, 2011 - 6:45am

      Jenny is returning later this season, not the little child

  • XXcyberlekXX

    May 1st, 2011 - 2:13pm

    i reckon this episode was good but hard to undersatnad:S
    firstly the time lord child i understand that its amys child and with some connection with a time lord but why was it in a space suit and if it is the doctors kid that would but werid thinking that the doctor and amy get it on….
    and also the silents imine yeah they look like a great monster but didnt feel like doctor who

    i have to say this i do think this new doctor who is good but i would rather prefare how it was before imine the companions were better the doctor acted more as an action man the a quire with abow tie the only thing i like in this series is the tardis imine it started of great at the begging of series five and then started to go strange.
    but i have to say the curse of the black spot looks great:D

    • Jeramy Simpson

      May 1st, 2011 - 2:19pm

      look at my link, i think the kid is amy.
      now before you disagree, look at my imdb link.
      Its just a massive coincidence that the little amy appears both in ep 8 and 13 and the other little girl just regenerated.
