I loved the "You dropped something" model for obvious reasons.

"Planet of the Oood" made wonder if the BBC knew what they were doing when they constantly kept rescheduling the fourth season? This is pre-watershed and we have guns, Ood being shot, Ood losing control, The Doctor going maniacal in a cage, and Captain Darling puking out his intestines and his brain

Apparently the episode they aired was an edited version, they did a much more violent version that'll presumbly be on the DVD release

Oh and Christmas Special spoiler

Spoiler:
The Cybermen commence an invasion of Victorian London

*chants* Sontar Hah! Sontar Hah! Sontar Hah!

Wow... this was an intense ep!! Kewl to see a Sonatarran space ship. Kinda looks like a combo of a Dalek and DS9.

Now with me the 70's eps that featured the Sontarans against the 4th Doctor and Leela are somewhat fresh in my mind as PBS aired them about a month ago.

Sontarans in the 70's were actually taller then they are now!

They totally remind me of Klingons. Well Klingons and Triceratons.

Doctor Who: Braught to you by Metlife (they really didn't have to show the Metlife building)!

Anybody else catch the brief flash of Rose screaming?? Warning the doctor perhaps??

Fave part of the ep is when the General and the Doctor put on the gas masks:
General: "Latest firing construct! What do you think?"
Doctor: "Are you my mummy??"

Greatest use of a SHIELD Hellicarrier, clearing away fog. I bet those Londoners could one of those every day....

Yes, the fact the production staff remembered The Valiant was still there was a nice nod of continuity...

Good eppy!! I like how Martha started to understand the Hoth.

And Jenny... Me thinks she'll become the Time Mistress.

I'm absolutely loving the series so far. And in mine and my friend Scott's (major Doctor Who fan, who is currently lending me his old Doctor Who DVD collection for my pleasure) poll for the hottest female star, Jenny has just taken over from Sally Sparrow at the top. Yep, we be typical boys! In fact a text mesage I sent him read "Omigod those eyes. The Doctor's daughter's eyes..." To which he replied "She's like love on legs. Oh Jenny." Before it was random texts like "SALLY SPARROW FOR COMPANION!" Which I still stand by.

Just watched the Unicorn and the Wasp earlier, although it was a fun and quirky episode, I must say that it's probably my least favourite of the series so far. And although the return of Martha was good, I much prefered her return on Torchwood. Speaking of which, in the last two Torchwood episodes, when it went back to Cpt Jack's victorian times, the brunette Scottish Torchwood employee who was torturing Jack and who dug him up in the last ep, is my sister's best friend Amy Mansen. She lives in London nowadays and I aint seen her for ages, but it was ace seeing her on the telly! Next time I see her, i'm gonna have a million questions for her!!

Slowly waiting the full return of Rose, woot!

Spoiler:
is it bestiality if it's an alien bee??
.

Trivia: Agatha divorced her husband 2 years later!

But the locations were a bit off:

Quote:
On 8 December 1926, while living in Sunningdale in Berkshire, she disappeared for ten days, causing great interest in the press. Her car was found in a chalk pit in Newland's Corner, Surrey. She was eventually found at the Swan Hydro (now the Old Swan hotel) in Harrogate under the name of the woman with whom her husband had recently admitted to having an affair. She had suffered a nervous breakdown and a fugue state caused by the death of her mother and her husband's infidelity. She could not recount any information as to her disapearance due to amnesia. Opinions are still divided[citation needed] as to whether this was a publicity stunt.
Chalk pit? Bit of a difference between a Chalk pit and a lake.... and the name of the hotel is Swan Hydro IN Harrogate...not Harrogate Hotel...

More trivia. The doctor seems to have given Agatha some ideas himself. Case in point...in 1945 she wrote a book called The Sparkling Cyanide!

Ah here's the full list of the books mentioned:
Why Didn't They Ask Evans
Spoiler:
(refering to the gay kid)

Murder On The Orient Express
Spoiler:
(Donna mentions it)

Miss Marple
Spoiler:
(Donna mentions it)

The Murder at the Vicarage
Spoiler:
(the 2 thieves killed in the church)

Cards on the Table
Spoiler:
(the Unicorn was sitting at a card table! )

Appointment with Death
Spoiler:
The doctor interviewing the people

N or M?
Spoiler:
The main characters are a Detective Tommy and his female sidekick, Tuppence...Hmmm

The Body in the Library
Spoiler:
(Poor Prof. Peach)

The Moving Finger
Spoiler:
(The doctor pointing at the suspects *L*)

Sparkling Cyanide
Spoiler:
(gee thanks doctor)

Crooked House
Spoiler:
(Agatha mentions the house is crooked)

They Do It With Mirrors
Spoiler:
I dunno.. I guess it's the mansion...

Cat Among the Pigeons
Spoiler:
A thief steals jewels and a detective pretends he's something else

The Secret Adversary
Spoiler:
The first story about Tommy and Tuppence.

Nemesis
Spoiler:
Poison I guess

Taken at the Flood
Spoiler:
(Daddy wasp is killed in a flood)

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
Spoiler:
(The book Lady Eddison was reading)

Death in the Clouds
Spoiler:
(Agatha's memories)


This ep is somewhat reminiscent of the TNG 2 parter that deals with Samuel Clemens.

Oh! And this week on PBS they started a 6 part Doctor Who story (4th doctor...final appearance of the annoying Leela) that involves the Time Lady Rodan (which came first? The Doctor Who character or the Godzilla monster???) and...Sontarans!

Martha didnt do a damn thing on Torchwood compared to her three weeks returning to Doctor Who

That said, I had no love for TUATW. Certaingly has hit a nice spot with some fans, and I can see why, but I found it pedestrian compared to the last few.

Episode twelve is rumoured to be called

Spoiler:
"War on Skaro"


And images have revealed that

Spoiler:
A Red Dalek is to appear...with a very important secret

Zarius, it'd really be helpful if you provided links to backup all of the stuff you post. I've read the Moffat story in several places today, but links, especially with the spoiler stuff, would really help put a context around everything.

"This video is not available in your country."

But I've already seen it through other means.

Good effort, though!

Wow... Just wow...

I seriously cannot wait for my eyes to see these episodes.

Although after my eyes see them, and the series is over, my eyes wont have Doctor Who to watch anymore. They'll be sad. But there's always the DVDs that I have, and the ones that I am borrowing from my friend....



Rose!

Spoiler:
And bets on that being Davros? I put a fiver in...

I know that, its the wait that i'm refering to. I miss it when its not on on a saturday...




And tonight's episode. WOW. Contender for best of the series so far? Definitely, in my opinion anyway...

It certainly has a legendary quote:

Spoiler:
I'm a time traveller. I point and laugh at archeologists.
