3. Congratulations to Konanda for figuring out the episode was about faith when it was named The Motherfucking God Complex and the cold open consisted of a girl repeating the line "Praise Him!" Truly your intellect is something to be celebrated! If real life were an episode of Doctor Who we would all be fucking murdered by Space Minotaur who would have absolutely no trouble feeding off our faith in Konanda's unparalleled powers of fucking clairvoyance and soothsayery!


Love you too baby.

What's quite telling is I've watched all the episodes from this season twice each but can't discuss them with the same gusto and detail as any of the "slow" episodes from the last few seasons

Hey, I'll tell you what - that was a really good episode. I think part of that has to do with the fact that also might have been the first time of the season where they used The Doctor's theme song from season 5.

I think a lot of why people aren't so hot on this season is because of what this episode highlights - this whole season seems to be about The Doctor losing sight of who he is and why he travels. He's so absorbed with finding baby River, the conundrum of his death, and self-conscious about the collateral damage around him that he's forgotten how to have fun, go on whimsical adventures, and that he does all this to save people. I think it's reassuring that the show is self-aware of this, and this episode did a good job of setting the woes of the whole season straight.

Man there is hella eye patches in the trailer for the last episode of the season. Also I've had this thought for a while now that Madame Kovarian is maybe some weird future River (they look similar, she seems to know so very much about River and it seems like something a television show would do) and that shot of River with an eyepatch in the trailer has me thinking this even more.

BTW, so does Craig not having any idea who the Cybermen are mean that the Battle of Canary Wharf never happened in this new universe.

Maybe. But Canary Wharf was a very London-thing though, right? So maybe Craig didn't really notice it (a la Donna) if he lived elsewhere.

Also, I thought that Amy's perfume "Petrichor" was a nice touch.

I thought that was funny/cute, but please for the love of god do not name your baby anything freaky like Stormaggedon or Rasillion. Unless you want your child to be teased and resent you for the rest of your life.

So when The Doctor died in the first episode, what happened to his TARDIS? Was it just left somewhere and when younger Doctor showed up they just took his? It's been a while since I watched it and I can't remember if they addressed this.

The TARDIS was with the Doctor cause he didn't die in the first episode.

I'm pretty excited for the finale. The entire season has been pretty predictable so far. And I feel like this is the first time where I don't know what's gonna happen next, and it's exciting. I still think the close has something to do with this, but I have strong doubts now, since usually Moffat lays more hints about those sorts of things.

I would think something as huge as that would at least make the papers and newsites.

The Doctor will continue living, seeing as Matt Smith has a whole other season and a Christmas special as well.

My guess is that by knowing of his impending doom he's created some kind of paradox that allows him to change his fate or some other timey whimey stuff and it'll involve River Song, the Silence and perhaps The Question.

And yet all of that flew right over Donna Noble's head. Remember that during the RTD series, the willful ignorance of the public was a long running theme.

Obviously. But it's how all that stuff will come together is what will be interesting.

I have been wishy washy on Season 6 so far, but I have been holding out final judgement till the end of the season when "all" is known (or not known). I'd just like to say, that episode was awesome. I hope the next episode lives up to it, which I am fairly confident it will.

Well, Donna is a pretty headstrong confident woman that doesn't really seem to care about reading the paper and keeping informed about the goings on of events. Where Craig seems more paranoid, cautious and timid so I would see him as more into knowing what's happening all the time so he can keep away.

Either way I was just wondering since I remember something about everything being pretty much the same (not totally the same)

I don't see how that could happen. River is the last regeneration of Melody so it's not something that can happen in her future (the Doctor's past). I suppose with all the brainwashing that the Silence were apparently doing that Kovarian could be an earlier regeneration of Melody and River doesn't have any memory of forcing herself to kill the Doctor.

Was really quite enjoying this week's episode and then about halfway through the Doctor said "I've got an app for that" so I stopped it, deleted it, and am never watching another episode of the show ever again.

They've made annoying pop culture references before, it's not a new thing.

Pretty excited for tomorrow's episode.

Did anybody notice that The Doctor's long-coat was back for the last one? Maybe it does mean there was time-leaping in that one previous one.

HOLY SHIT that episode was totally banaynay! Thoroughly entertaining all the way through. Towards the end I got depressed when I thought I knew what was going to happen, but then how The Doctor resolves the entire debacle was something I didn't see coming at all (but probably should have). And then "The Question" at the end was a super bonkers way to close everything out.
Spoiler: show
Doctor, WHO????


Now there's more questions swirling about than ever, and I'm super amped for X-Mas.
Spoiler: show
"The Fall of the Eleventh"? Sounds like a pretty ominous foreshadowing of the demise of Matt Smith. Also, if someone actually asks "Doctor, Who?" and we get an answer, does that mean the show will be over? Super cray-cray!

BBC America messed up on me in the minute or two before the final commercial break, so I'm not entirely sure if there was anything in there that was pertinent to the end of the show.

I am confused by your post.

Spoiler: show
Are you saying you think that The Doctor avoided his death (which happened in the first episode) by replacing himself with the robot? If so, I don't think that's what happened at all. I think it was the robot the whole time. Everyone just thought it was The Doctor. The fixed point in time was that the robot gets shot.


That being said, I don't think I liked this season as much as the previous one. This one seemed to jump around too much and at times didn't feel like it was following a logical order.
