      Killer first ep!! I love the soon-to-be-new companion, she'll be a nice change from the 20th century "average girl" that we've had so many times.

      She's a genius, she's from well beyond 20th Century Earth so she knows space travel, etc. That's a very different companion then any of the others from the reboot era.

      I'll miss the Ponds, but I welcome a new dynamic.

      It will be interesting to see how they bring her in, perhaps after the Ponds leave The Doctor remembers "Oswin Oswald, entertainment officer on the spaceship Alaska" and goes and gets here sooner in time? Taking her on a journey through space and time with HIM instead of letting things take their course with her life, and eventual death by Dalek.

      This is going to be a great season.

      Oswin was an awfully fast talker. I thought I was watching a scene from Gilmore Girls.
      She made more sense at reduced playback speed. It took several tries until I realized she said "then run" to the doctor when she let him go.

      Very cute girl. I'll still miss Amy's red hair, but Oswin's cuteness should suffice.

      We don't see her again until the Christmas episode, right?

      Thats what I've read, and my understanding is that the Ponds make their exit in episode 5.

      They clearly are moving the episodes toward Amy and Rory's exit. That's very clear.

      Love the Harry Potter tie in,
      Also liked Nefertiti & Ridell.

      Not as good as the first episode. Felt like a kids show at times.
      Nefi was hot, though.

      Hard to top the premiere, but that was a strong ep. I actually enjoy the "monster of the week" episodes. Excellent as it was, last season got VERY heavy into the core story and lacked a lot of the fun we've come to expect. Good times.

      On another note, I've been basically "forcing" my wife to watch Doctor Who on Netflix. We finished the Eclestone eps last night, and she seems like she's actually looking forward more to the Tennant eps. I think she only stuck with me because she wanted to see Capt. Jack's intro since we watched Torchwood together.

      The 2-party "Are You My Mummy?" arc creeped her out thoroughly.

      Yeah it did.



      It was also an ep that the Doctor and Martha were barely IN, because they were shooting 2 episodes simultaneously. I don't think they expected the Weeping Angels to be as big as they were.

      In the episode, the Doctor—a time travelling alien played by David Tennant—and his companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) are trapped in the past and try to warn a young woman, Sally Sparrow (Carey Mulligan), how to prevent the Weeping Angels from taking control of the TARDIS. In order to solve the case, Sparrow, along with her best friend's brother Larry Nightingale (Finlay Robertson), must make the connection between seventeen separate DVD titles, each concealing a cryptic easter egg.

      Due to the Doctor and his companion having very little screen time, allowing another episode to be filmed simultaneously, "Blink" is consequently referred to as a "Doctor-lite" episode. The scenes at Wester Drumlins were actually shot in a derelict house in Newport, Gwent. To create the angels, two actresses wore makeup and prosthetics. The episode was seen by 6.62 million viewers in the United Kingdom and received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Moffat won the BAFTA Craft and BAFTA Cymru awards for Best Writer, and the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form. For her single performance in the series, Carey Mulligan won the Constellation Award for Best Female Performance in a 2007 Science Fiction Television Episode. In 2009 the episode was voted the second best Doctor Who story in history by readers of Doctor Who Magazine.

      I never knew the accolades Blink received.

      And in case I didn't mention it before, it starred Carey Mulligan

      Now I'm wondering what the readers of Doctor Who Magazine voted as the very best Doctor Who story ever, if Blink was #2.

      the googles...

      http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/09/17/best_who_ever/

      Doctor Who fans name best episode ever

      And it's not Blink or Genesis of the Daleks...


      By Lester Haines • Get more from this author
      Posted in Entertainment, 17th September 2009 09:10 GMT

      Over 6,700 Time Lord fans responded to a Doctor Who Magazine call to rate all 200 episodes of the classic sci-fi TV series, and selected 1984's The Caves of Androzani - in which fifth Doctor Peter Davison hung up his sonic screwdriver - as the best of the bunch.

      Davison's finale beat 2007's excellent Blink, with David Tennant, into second spot. Tom Baker deservedly took third place with 1975's Genesis of the Daleks.

      The Telegraph explains that in The Caves of Androzani, the Doctor and companion Peri "arrive on the planet Androzani Minor, and are soon entangled in a dark plot involving gun-running, drug-smuggling and android duplicates.

      "At the climax of the story, dying from poison, the Doctor has to regenerate to save his own life, but saves the life of Peri in the process."

      Davison said of the programme: “I think you immediately knew when you read the script, that it was a very good Doctor Who story. It was a Bob Holmes script, and he was one of the writers that you dreamed of having on Doctor Who.”

      The full 200-episode league table appears in Doctor Who Magazine #413, out today. The top ten are:

      The Caves of Androzani (1984 - Peter Davison)
      Blink (2007 - David Tennant)
      Genesis of the Daleks (1975 - Tom Baker)
      The Talons of Weng-Chiang (1977 - Tom Baker)
      The Empty Child (2005 - Christopher Eccleston)
      Human Nature (2007 - David Tennant)
      Pyramids of Mars (1975 - Tom Baker)
      City of Death (1979 - Tom Baker)
      The Robots of Death (1977 - Tom Baker)
      Bad Wolf (2005 - Christopher Eccleston)

      ®
      Most of the old stuff is on Netflix, I'll have to check it out. Nice to see a couple of Eccleston eps in there, highly under-rated season imo.

      I think the last few seasons have been pretty good actually.

      Solid ep, we need a few "monster of the week" eps to balance out the cannon-heavy eps, and this was a good one.

      Being an episode involving the weeping angels, it was pretty predictable how it would end.

      Not to get technical on a timey wimey issue, but if 1938 and/or New York are screwed up now in time & space, the Doctor could have told Amy (before she went back) to leave NY and he'd rescue them in 1939. Moffat messed that up.

      I enjoyed it, but it felt a little forced.

      Double sucks because I really like the idea of them being in New York. Now they screwed that for all future episodes... maybe.

      I'll definitely miss Amy. Damn she's hot River's 1930s outfit was working quite well for me too

      This is where the door could be left open. Who's to say the iconic Trylon and Perisphere of the 1939 NY World's Fair weren't planted there from the future, being some kind of energy timey wimey thing giving the Doctor a way back into NY to collect Rory and Amy?



      River is always hot. Alex Kingston looks great for 49.
