    Monsters or Mobsters? (More unrealistic than the Rhino jidoon?)

    I liked it, but I wanted to see Keira Knightley in the role of the 'lead' witch. Or is it just me?

    I really enjoyed that episode. I especially liked all the literary references and the poking fun at a few of the more popular Shakespeare controversies/debates.

    Next week's seems to be on the more serious-drama-action side.

    Loved it ^^

    Speaking of the Judoon, did anyone else think last week they could have fitted the Sontarans into that episode and it not make a bit of difference? Only the fronts of their helmets were different to their overall look... Sontarans would have been a far nicer touch as well.

    Solid episode with good dialogue, aside from the cliched witch stuff.

    Back to New Earth and the big face thing next week, which can't fail to be better then the last episode that was set there.

    You know, when I saw the title of the thread I thought it was going to be about when the US release would be airing. Shame on me for not recognizing that it was just the day first, month second way of listing the date.

    As for the episode, I'm downloading it right now. Can't wait to watch it.

    Enjoyed it as well.

    It was nice to have another link to the old series with the Eternals name being dropped, and a hint of future events with Queen Elizabeth the First, though didn't see the Saxon reference.

    So far I'm liking Martha more that Rose.
    For one, it doesn't sound like she's speaking through her nose and she seems to have some level of intelligent to her.

    Next week it looks like we find out the secret that the big Face has.

    I actually thought I did during last week's teaser, but didn't see it this week. Just went and checked the trailer and didn't see it either. Weird :p 

    I've been betting for the last year that the Face of Boe's secret would be along the lines of "you are not alone" or "you are not the last Time Lord." And thus far this series, it's looking like I'm going to be right.

    Two weeks 'til more Daleks!

    Nono, Rose was inelegant. Martha, however, seems intelligent :p

    Jerk.
    Fixed it.

    And Misatokitty, some things I read today makes me agree with you.
    Course it could just be a red herring.

    There was no Saxon referance I could find either, and I was watching/listening for it. I am most certainly seeing the groundwork being laid for Gallifrey or even a New Gallifrey to return.

    I sure hope Gallifrey doesn't return. Too much baggage. The Doctor as the last, or one of the last, Time Lords works far better for me.
    I wonder what the deal with the Queen is? I'm guessing perhaps she has an advisor warning her about the Doctor? If there is another Time Lord running about making his move now, it would make sense that he is trying to set all history against the Doctor.

    Too much baggage? It was great stuff when he was on the run from his own people, then it was actually quite fun to watch him switch to being on the run for beign a renegade to being on the run because he was avoiding responsibility because they wanted him to be President.


    I doubt the Queen's reaction was from someone else telling her about the doctor, she reacted to his face. She recognized the Doctor because they'd met, now if there's an impostor...

    Would remind me of the last season of Quantam Leap where the evil Leapers were going back and wronging the wrong's that Sam had put right.

    I know this is a sort of new guy question but how exactly did the time lords come about. Not talking origin I mean making new time lords, cause I read somewhere that they were gonna make ace going to a time lord academy and such.

    And if thats the case and the master is back what's to stop him from making a twisted version of the time lords in his own image...well aside from the doctor

    New Time Lords are woven, from DNA. At least that how's the new Adventures Novels put it.

    I want the master (who last I recall was hopping around stealing bodies because he'd used up all his regenerations) to turn up, steal the Doctors severed hand from Captain Jack and clone himself a new body...

    That looks like Christopher Eccleston...

    Or y'know David Tennant, since he'd already changed bodies when the hand was lopped off.
