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

I'd rather be a whiny twat than the kind of braindead moron who found that episode anything other than embarrassing.

...

Oh hang on, I forgot the emoticon that makes a statement like that acceptable.

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

Yeah, thought so.
But doesn't that mean something like "spoilers up to and including 5x09"?
And since we did not see that Rory guy in the first nine episode or have him mentioned, this guy is probably mentioned in a spoiler tu a yet unaired episode - and it's not OK to talk about that.

Meanwhile, fantastic episode. Anyone who says otherwise is a whiny twat.
That'll be me, then.
Yup, put me down for a Whiny Twat badge. I apologise for wanting a character death in an episode to have some kind of vague impact, and having a vague promise of future revelations does not compensate for that, sorry. "Rory will be back" doesn't do it either as it renders the event even more undone and pointless - just how many times is Rory going to be resurrected? And I adore the posters telling others they're mentally slow then happily writing off any kind of inconsistency as 'wibbly wobbly, timey wimey' - I think Moffat's best contribution to his own success on this show may well have been inventing that all encompassing get-out clause.

^I don't see how there was no impact??? He didn't just die, he didn't even exist. Upon death the best any of us can hope for is that our contribution to society, to those we loved, is remembered. McCoy is right in TWOK, he's really not gone as long as we remember him.

Well nobody does remember him, aside from the Doctor. Personally I found that way more shocking than someone just dying.

Exactly - he didn't even exist! His fiancÚ (who we see at the beginning would be with him ten years hence) doesn't remember he even existed. Where's the impact? She's forgotten him before they even take off. Amy gets maybe 15 seconds of mopey face and then they're off to Rio like nothing happened. Because nothing did.

Well if anything the loss of a regular cast member has made the issue with the crack a lot more personal for viewers.

The plunger/disruptor killed him, not the crack - all the crack did was conveniently remove any need to deal with the death, yet still remove the character allowing Doctor and Companion to rush off to more adventures without either a) a 'companion's companion' character holding them back, or b) the grief of losing a fiancÚ to muddy the waters of adventure.
Pretty much just Mickey again. A character who was introduced as close to the companion so it was therefore difficult to explain why she was fine adventuring without him, but difficult to include him in stories.

I still don't get it.

Should I chalk this one up to an "I am wounded" or...?

The impact is for us the viewer and the Doctor. Would it help is Amy spent the next season moping about like Ten did after Rose?

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

Isn't it also obvious this will be sorted by the end of this series? which means we will have two episodes without Rory and then the final two-parter?

How much signposting do people need? The constant references of "time can be rewritten!" to know that by the end of the series, one way or the other Rory will be back (which doesn't mean he's going to be around next year).
