Re: 5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!

I believe that the Doctor was talking about the Angels knowing was an implication...because they were laughing at him. Bob Angel says this to the Doctor.

Nope, Ten didn't cause the crack.

If you looked carefully, the fragment was an exact match to Eleven's new TARDIS. Also, the crack seem to be getting thicker as we get towards the series finale, so I suspect something Eleven is going to do in the future would cause the TARDIS to explode. I guess thats why the final episode is called "The Big Bang". And the crack radiates from the point of explosion into both the past and future, along the TARDIS' trajectory.

Re: 5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!

Excellent episode. The death of Rory was handled wonderfully; I've been avoiding spoilers, and it really came out of nowhere for me.

I have to admit that even though I'd thought that Amy's fixation on the Doctor was unhealthy and that the Doctor probably had ulterior motives for bringing Amy aboard, "Amy's Choice" made it clear that the Doctor does have some romantic feelings for her, and I had been shipping Amy/Doctor a bit. I'm wondering how the erasure of Rory will affect the Doctor/Amy relationship -- and at the same time, I find myself unexpectedly sad, as I found myself simultaneously shipping Amy/Rory (which turned out to be a much sweeter and more organic relationship than I'd thought it would be).

Makes ya wonder what's going to happen when the Pandorica opens.

Re: 5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!

Another awful episode to finish off a very bad two parter.

But at least that whiny prat is dead now and hopefully for good.

But i have got a really bad feeling there's going to be a deus ex machina that's going to resurrect the useless moron.

If she is still getting married, but to someone else, maybe the really handsome one, and she still made out with him, why didn't the Dopctor go and get the other groom? OR... If she wasn't going to get married to anyone anymore, Rory's other death wouldn't have saved the dynamic duo from the dreamlord and the Doctor wouldn't have had much choice but to submit to having sex with the ginger ape acouple episodes earlier.

Re: 5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!

This series is bubbling along nicely, another entertaining episode.

Based on some of what I read here I wonder if I am missing out on watching a show I hate to bitch about every week.

Re: 5x09 Cold Blood (Grading/Discussion) SPOILERS!!!

Better than the first half - I do love the lizard-babe army...

I'm in two minds about the loss of Rory, though I feel very sorry for Amy. On one hand, I'm glad to see the back of Arthur Darvill, who I feel is the weak link in the acting stakes. OTOH, I feel a reset coming on that will restore him in the finale - the crack erased him from history, yeah, but that means it erased his death from history. And if the finale is calling back to the opener, then I think what'll happen is Rory will be restored to the night before his wedding, but this time he won't go in the TARDIS.

And then the "what can exlode with such force to blow holes in the continuum?" thing... Oho...

It's nice to have a Silurian story that doesn't end up with them all getting killed.

Anyhow, um, 8/10

Exactly. And it happens on 26th June 2010, over 5 years after Ten regenerated. Nothing to do with him at all, though I can see why some people are thinking along those lines.

I'd say it's just hugely unlikely Moffatt would have the cause of his season's arc be something that happened under the previous showrunner's tenure rather than something he crafted himself.

For humans, sure. Obviously Silurian physiology doesn't handle massive jolts of electricity to the heart region very well.

What personalities?!? They were cyphers, nothing more. The angry military leader (with familial connections to the soldier us humans just killed, of course), the wise elder, the morally resolute scientist (who's totally fine with VIVISECTION btw, but lets just ignore that this episode). And all played their usual roles in this cliche ridden suckfest.
Damn, what're you so pissed off about?

Compared to the usual 'Die, puny humans!' aliens we normally get on the show, yes, I thought they had tons of personality.

HEY WATCH IT. Some of us were rather fond of that whiny prat thank you very much.

You should've rephrased it: "They had tons of personality... for a Doctor Who episode"

Gave it a "Good" although Rory's death was not expected and I quite liked the guy. Well, somewhere between "like" and "I feel sorry for the poor bastard so he's got my sympathy".

As for how someone can die from a taser... Jax, I'm guessing you're not big on reading the news.

I do but I would think a tough thick venomed filled Lizard could handle a few jolts, she didn't hit her that often and they called us weak apes
