5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!
 
Only a few more hours till the resolution of this two-parter. Despite the Eurovision Song Contest, this episode will air later than usual, at 7 pm.

Man they look so cool with the masks on!!

I must admit I'm a bit puzzled why they wear those masks. Did they do that in Classic Who, too?

I'm guessing for lizards w/o a speaking role, it's easier to glue a generic mass-produced mask over their human faces.. and I think it's also a tribute to the classic Who days when it wasn't considered important for monsters to emote.

Who knows what the masks are for. Religious, cultural, night vision goggles? I just know they look a lot cooler with them on.

What I find kinda neat is the white mesh netting used in their outfits. A tip of the hat to the Sea Devils?

Anyway, as with the conclusions of all two-parters, I'd like to take a moment to offer a simple prayer.

"Dear lord, please don't let it suck. Amen."

Maybe it will return to its time slot now that 'Over the Rainbow' is over.

its 18:40 next week, so that is not too bad
week after that, 18:45 (but could change)

after that, there is two more episodes left, the first one will air against a World Cup match on ITV, not sure about the finale, BBC/ITV have not yet decided who will have what game, past the group stage.

So the finale air date is TBC

If we have to wait two weeks for the conclusion of the season finale, there will be blood... :klingon:

yes that would be a major pain.

That said, BBC have first pick of the post group stage matches, so its possible they will pick another match that day, avoid having to move the Doctor Who finale.

oh and the game "The Pandorica Opens" clashes with is Cameroon v Denmark, so not big competition.

That said the BBC will look for "The Lodger" to finish before 19:30, otherwise it will clash with England v USA on ITV, that could do some serious damage, if the two were to compete. 18:45 seems a logic start name, but I would not be too surprised if its earlier.

So Ten caused the cracks when he regenerated in the TARDIS. Its all slowly coming together...

I thought the main story of the episode was so-so but the bits to do with the series arc were fantastic.

Quite liked it. Liked that they didn't draw out the 'who will kill Alaya' thing too much. The narration by Stephen Moore was nicely ambiguous. Rory's death was quite a shock, even though I did kind of see it coming. Also, I pretty much expected the 'shrapnel' to be a piece of the TARDIS.

Crucial arc plot point - someone contacted by the time energy cannot be forgotten if a person concentrates. The other Doctor in "Flesh and Stone" comes to mind - "remember what I said when you were eight".
