      River is a bit flirtatious, and looking hot with a gun. Pretty damn good for 48.

      Mark Sheppard would be stuck in 1969, I guess. Why go back?

      Well, I imagine they could pop in for a few more adventures that could fall between 1969 & 2011 when he comes back with the bucket of gasoline...

      I missed part 2.

      Is there a way to see it online, not involving torrents?

      Did it really bother anyone else that in 1969, they have a practically new Jeep Wrangler and a late-80s Grand Wagoneer in the desert? For a show that normally does fairly well with the details, that really stuck out to me.

      Otherwise I'm loving the season so far. Part 2 was a pretty effective mindfrell.

      Yeah that was a seriously bad anachronism for a show that usually does well with avoiding those.

      Mark Shepperd was in a couple episodes of Firefly. He's been in a ton of things actually.

      I thought part 2 wasn't nearly as good as part 1. Started good, with Canton seemingly killing them off only to have it been a ruse, but then just kinda meh... Guess we'll see the space kid again sometime.

      ...I really enjoyed Day of The Moon, but was left a bit confused. I'm guessing like someone elses stated the holes will be filled later in the season.

      I liked it. They also showed how the suit could still come to life on its own and kill the Doctor. Leaves that possibility open, still...

      You're watching a show where an alien travels through time in a blue police box, yet the cars are an issue?

      Both vehicles resemble their ancestors that were available in 1969. I think the real flub was the modern low-profile rubber on the Wrangler.
      Maybe the Feds got them from the future or used alien tech. They were near Area 51 -- anything's possible.

      Was reading about this week's episode on IO9, and given that I haven't been an avid follower of Doctor Who, I didn't realize that the little girl from the space suit actually did the Timelord regeneration thing at the end of the episode. Woah.

      Good ep this week, loved the Pirate theme. Also confirm that the events of the opening 2-parter will effect the new eps as well.

      Finally got around to watching this weekend's ep! Super creepy.

      I know it's probably just me, but I think I felt like there was some degree of melancholy missing from Matt Smith's rendition of the Doctor up until now. You hardly ever got a real sense of how it would feel to be crazy powerful and unbearably lonely off and on for over 900 yrs, like you did with Tenant. It's great to be dealing with that a little more in depth. Not that it needs to be all emo doom & gloom all the time or anything; just that it's nice to get the occasional peek like in this ep.

      And I wanted to hear the rest of the explanation why we can't have a She-Tardis! More than just that it's 'spacey-wacey stuff', that is.

      A humanized Tardis was creative, and the actress was cute.

      I see what you're saying. I have to say, I really like Matt Smith's Doctor. No, he doesn't have a drop of melancholy about him. I like that he's playing him with almost childlike wonder. So far, he hasn't had a serious enemy challenge him yet, so there has been almost no sense of danger or urgency with him, just a mad hatter type thing.

      I loved the she-tardis! That was such a clever idea, I really wish they could've done that a bit longer than one episode. And DAYUM at the above picture

      Well I just finished watching "A Good Man Goes to War".

      This just furthers my suspision that River Song is the person in the space suit who killed the Doctor. She is in prison for killing someone but she won't say who, and this would be for good reason.

      I just hope they resolve all this crap this season, it's getting to be like a soap opera. I don't want them to be chasing after the young River for the next two years only to drop her character for some contrived reason.

      Now I'm going to watch a nice Tom Baker episode with a tidy conclusion that I can enjoy.

      So all Matt Smith needs is a giant scarf and a pocket full of jelly beans?

      Spoiler-y discussion below, highlight to read...

      I think they've been toying with "River is someone's relative" right along. Though I don't think they've ever know exactly how they'd play it out. I hypothesize that it is the reason her and the Doctor are never on the same timeline, always before or after each other. Some deeper connection.

      I think casting a hottie redhead as the latest companion just helped Moffett synthesize and focus that storyline a bit and I wouldn't be surprised if she is Amy & Rory's child in the end.


      Back to non-spoiler-y...

      The last 2 episodes were excellent!

      I should have seen that coming far earlier but I didn't figure it out until the moment Amy said her infant's first name. Then it was instant.
