    DW S6 Finale was a really good episode to watch there where some dissapointing bits but still more better than The Big Bang. It did answer most of the questions that we wanted to know but there are others that still need answering. Dorium was funny although he was a head in a box but still alive for him to make an appearance and a new mystery that he said to the doctor The Fields of Trensalor. If that is how it is spelt

    Evening guys…jeez, it shows how much i know when i’m confused by things like “lodger tardis” or how far back these arcs go πŸ™ I need a sit down with one of you that knows everything lol

    So, questions for now :

    1.) Christmas special i know about, will it be within this story or a stand-alone like that terrible titanic one?
    2) when, usually, do the series start…what stage is the 2012 series at in production? how do these things move…

    If any1 can answer those i will reward you with 100 Internetz πŸ˜€

      The Christmas special will i’m sure be stand alone and they Havant even stated on the 2012 series and it will be shown towards the end of the year rather than the beginning

      The only episode made of the 11.3 series is the Christmas Special. The other 13 episodes begin filming in February for Autumn broadcast.

    this episode was quite good, i loved the way the silence broke out, and i loved the way river and the doctor talked on the pyramid, it was quite sad. amy and rory were cool. but how did amy suddenly remembe that she and rroy were married? how did river capture kovarion? How did they create the eyepatches? what did river say to amy? the thing is, steven moffats episodes are complicated, which i like, but with the ending it was not good. i wanted to know what happened to Amy and rory! are they just gonna sit there?? i have to admit t was clever the way he was a tescelecta, BUT IF IT WAS A FIXED POINT IN TIME WHY DID A ROBOT TAKE THE DOCTORS PLACE? TIME SHOULD HAVE DISINTEGRATED!! we have all caught steven moffat out in the last 2 years, i prefer russel t, watch journeys end and then watch this, tell me, what is better?? do tell me if you agree on what i have said, i want to know your opinions!

      yeah, a robot replica programed by the doctor would know what to do to simulate his death. Just what would be the point since as soon as he appeared to the daleks/cybermen/zygons/a million other monsters in the monster allience created at the pandorica extraveganza, surely the news would spread like wildfire….wait a minute…THE DOCTOR ISNT DEAD!!!!

    MY TWO PENCE WORTH

    Nice explanataion of the doctors escape from death BUT……..

    NO EXPLANATION OF WHO BLEW UP THE TARDIS! (yes im shouting) cause we were told that this would be explained this season. So now we have to wait ANOTHER year maybe to find out who did it, or maybe not.

    All those races answered the distress call…NONE helped, (what was the point)

    Time doesnt move…yet it seamed to in the story. One word is followed by another…therefore time has passed.

    I had mixed feelings about the brigadier mention. (fitting tribute to a legend but but isnt he in a time machine, everyone dies to the doctor eventually. Travel 150 years into the future and everyone will have died from your starting point)
    So the doctor is married now….guess someone has to repopulate the new gallifrey..lots of little time lord feet in the tardis then?

    To be honest, I got what I expected. Little closure to so many unanswered questions.

    1. Who built the lodger time machine and WHY?
    2. Were the silent a race of big headed aliens or a religious order..(confusing)
    3. Ganger doctor….dead or alive?
    4. Didnt the cleric who was with river song know about rivers crime, did he not know the doctor was dead since the byzantium happened after her imprisonment? If the doctor can be found at any point BEFORE his death, it wouldnt really matter if he did die eventually cause you just would have to look for a PRE DEATH doctor like river did, All 11 regenerations of him.
    5. When was the epilogue with river and amy? after the doctor left them with a house and a car? when did amy and rory get back with the doctor for them to see his death? so the season was all mixed up. the first episode was actually at the end of the season……WHY THE CONFUSING TIMEY WIMEY CONFUSION.

    I have to say this was the WORST new season of new who yet.
    Ruined cybermen, confusing arcs, little resolution to those arcs.

    silence did fall…on any explanation that would have left us thinking AAAHHH…I GET IT NOW.

    DISAPOINTED…..but still love doctor who. You have to take the rough with the smooth

      Unfortuantly I agree, I liked him upto tonight, I thought all questions were supposed to be answered and they weren’t, still many questions remain and proably wont get answered till next year (if that), and he is ruining the show by making it confusing, I wouldn’t have minded if all questions asked got answered in the same series like the davies era but there not and it is making my head explode trying to understand it !!!!

    Wasn’t the best ep but it was still brilliant. The silence(or silents if you want) were on the roof again though(grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!) Next year according to Moffat will be less arc heavy though meaning some questions could be answered earlier on the series.

    Another prophesy for the doctor, probably will be his regeneration story (really really hope not). Would be furious though if the doctors name is revealed (unlikely), but thats something we should NEVER know. Liked the teselecta twist but in my view series 2 finale was still better. Although i think the moffatt era is better both finales havent been breathtaking more kinda rushed than anything.That being said Is it christmas yet lol

    great episode, but not the best. I think as a finale, A Good Man Goes To War was way better. I think that the Doctor has no name – it is unpronouncable, and yet River whispered it in his ear. It is also said that it ‘burns in the medusa cascade’, so… maybe…

      MOFFAT TO GO? – ARE YOU INSANE?

      Granted some of the stories have been weak, But some of them have been brilliant. The whole tone of the show has become more exciting and full of twists without relying on the same baddies over and over again.

      Russell Davies brought the show back but most of the shows were, weak and overly sentimental – Eccleston and Tennant spent most of their time chewing the scenery in an effort to prove they were quality actors – Garbage!! The only good Davies episode was “Blink” and that was written by Moffat….

      Hated it. Hated it last year too, when it was called The Big Bang. A lot of effort to go back to the self-indulgence of the McCoy stories; more concerned with wallowing mythology than telling a story. I do hope the brilliant Matt Smith gets a chance to shine in some less encumbered episodes.
