Who is this Rory chap everyone is on about, I went back and re-watched all the episodes of this season, no Rory, surely someone is pulling someone's leg.

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

been looking at the "Silence in the Library" forum over at GBase, and find it amusing that when information the next batch of 11th Doctor novels first came out, it was minus Rory, since then covers have come out with Rory on them, but now he is wiped from time, is it really right to put out books featuring a character who has been wiped from time?

Why? The stories still exist, just like the episodes with Rory in them still exist. There's two timelines in Doctor Who. The one the Doctor follows and the one everything else in existence follows. Rory was only erased from the latter.

[Dodgey science pisses me off too. As previously stated, the moniker 'Homo Reptilis' or ;Homo Reptilia' makes zero taxanomic sense. Basically, it seems an awful lot like the writer wanted a cool-sounding latin name for the Silurians. Unfortunately, he didn't take the time to actually look at how proper latin names are derived, or didn't care.
Was homo reptilia a term of Chibnall's coinage? I thought it was from the old series. I agree with you as to why it's pretty bad, though. But it doesn't bother me too much because it's only as inaccurate as Silurian or Eocene, which are from the old series.
Complaints about the Latin name for a humanoid lizard race kind of fall off the junk science meter when they've done an episode with a space whale. I think we can accept that the science and hence acceptably the nomenclature of the DW universe is somewhat different to ours

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

Really enjoyed this - and I've finally warmed to the new Silurians!

There were some excellent moments in this story. The tension re the hostage situation in particular. I also really enjoyed the themes of loss and dealing with it (i.e. Rory & the Grandfather).

This is shaping up to be the strongest opening season for a Doctor since, dare I say it, seasons seven and twelve. Fantastic....

Good. Quite enjoyable with great themes. Marred by some poor acting from the guest stars, particularly the woman playing the mother.

Loved the CG Silurian underworld,
sorry I have to ask, but are you being serious?
I liked the Silurian underworld as well. All around, both the CG and the sets. It worked for me.

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

To c&p a comment I made on LJ:

I keep getting this feeling that the crack doesn't actually DESTROY anything, but that it rather just erases all memory of something. All the events--Cyberking, Dalek Invasion, etc.--still happened, but the MEMORY of it has been erased from human history.

This is why I think Rory isn't actually dead. I think he survived the shot. This may be over/wishful thinking, but firstly, the duration of the shot to the scientist Silurian was longer than the duration of the shot that hit Rory. Secondly, the scientist was at closer range than Rory was when shot. Thirdly, and this is where I'm stretching, it's possible that the Silurian weapon doesn't work as well on humans as it does on Silurians, just like the taser managed to kill Alaya when, most times, a human can survive such an attack.

So, I think that Rory was actually knocked unconscious, perhaps to the point of near-death, but not completely killed.

My theory on the crack is that it simple throws whatever it consumes out into either another reality, another dimension, or perhaps into various points in Time. So I bet we'll see Rory again, but somewhere else in some other time (maybe explaining the date on his nurse ID badge?).

Interesting theory. I really enjoyed the series and am looking forward to series how the arc pans out. I think the series will be even better when watched after the final, there's probably stuff we're not noticing.

Except if the crack did just erase memory of something, it would be very easy for the Doctor to just go back in time to find out that the thing erased is still there.

Actually...

^ No, Particle Man is right. He didn't pick it up, but he definitely noticed it.
