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

Obviously you didn't concentrate on Rory hard enough as the episode was airing that he was removed from your memories when he was erased from time by the crack.

No great loss.

Yeah, thought so.

This show seems very keen on using forgetting stuff as a way of not dealing with the consequences of events. So we've killed off Rory, and wiped it from Amy's mind so that she can carry on next week as if nothing had happened. So... what was the point of him existing in the first place again? A totally inconsequential character death with little or no emotional impact at all. And how does Rory never having existed fit with the timeline of the last couple of episodes in which he played a role in the plot, and which needed to happen to get to this point?
I don't understand how anyone could watch that and come to that conclusion? Why is it difficult to see this is simply another beat in a series long storyline?

Is the modern audience really so mentally slow they need obvious things spelling out to them?
From the evidence here, I'd say yes. That, or they want to link plot points to inconsequential things that they want to hold onto (i.e. Ten's regen, or anything at all from the RTD era, having anything whatsoever to do with the crack, etc.)

It's amazing. Moffat's ongoing, recurring theme is the whole wibbly-wobbly-phrase thing, where time is not linear. Yet, there are fans who simply refuse to wrap their heads around the concept, and instead insist on "seeing patterns in things that aren't there" (to quote the 8th Doctor).

Meanwhile, fantastic episode. Anyone who says otherwise is a whiny twat.

And Rory will be back.

I hope so. I think I'm one of the few here who actually liked Rory.

Very cool to have the TARDIS wreckage in the crack.

I'm curious to how this will all play out.

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

I've gotten really intregued with this whole Crack thing. Even intregued enough to go back to Eleventh Hour and find the clip where Prisoner 0 said stuff about Pandorica opening and the Crack being something to a greater thing going on with the universe. I've got to wonder if Prisoner 0 is coming back. Who would have thought such an inconsequential character ended up so important. I might even watch this season again after it ends. Going through it once might make one miss a ton of things. I still don't think it's the best season, but hopefully this Crack storyline ends well because it's the best Storyline Doctor Who has done since 2005 (When I started watching).

Aw, now, give Checkmate his due. He's simply pointing out that it's okay to talk about spoilers for this supposedly new Rory character since this is a spoilers thread.

You assume 10 regenned in 2005. He left Rose in 2005, flew up and out. To when we don't know. Plus the regen powered TARDIS explosion could have brought the TARDIS up to 2010 then plummet it back to Earth and in time to 7 year old Amy's time.
If you look at the TARDIS in the first episode, before it rebuilt itself, you can see that the door is still intact. Here for instance (click on the picture to enlarge it). It's 11's TARDIS that explodes.

Aw, I was getting to like him too. He saved the Doctor's life, how can you not like him?

Another plus point for this episode was Stpehen Moore. Is he really 72 now.

I'm not joking either, think about it, what if they are all in some kind of computer generated program, and the Doctor doesn't know it, he could be trapped

I know, it's like saying anyone with intact critical faculties is a whiny twat.
