Re: Children in Need 2012: Christmas Special prequel + trailer

The nervousness can just be put down to their trying to get the Doctor to come out of his post-Amy funk. He has been growing more annoyed by their calls to get him involved in life since Amy, and they can't be sure he won't up and vanish all together. Strax, I guess he just got better.

Did anything come of the blackened vortex in the opening sequences of the last series? I can't help but think that this is all linked with the Doctor 'retiring' and this quote of River's:

Honestly, I think they just did that because they thought it looked cool. Just like every episode having a unique logo.

Also, Vastra and Jenny were quite nervous, twitchy and very eager to appease The Doctor. Its very unlike their confident selves in AGMGTW who even challenged the Doctor's motives and ideas. So these might indeed be their younger selves.
I didn't take them as nervous or fearful of the Doctor. More like desperate to help a friend out of what seems to be a deep depression.

Bleedingcool has put up a picture of the Doctor and Madam Vastra which should intriguing or frustrating depending on your point of view. That is assuming this isn't just a production goof. Be spoiler warned of course. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/12/...as-fingertips/

Whoa, that's weird. That photo is one of the photos for the Adventure Calendar on the official site.

They probably just didn't show her hands in shot, or else its a rehersal, so they didn't bother with the gloves. Just needs a bit of Photoshop is all.


Hmmmm, and does the Tardis look a bit more scuffed up than usual?

What about the box that's clearly labeled "Underground?"

It was. BBC has since removed it from the site.

There was another image, a wallpaper, that revealed a bit of her wrist. I just checked, and instead of removing that wallpaper, they decided to edit it. Very poorly.

Nice to see they took a whole 5 1/2 seconds to clean up the mistake!

Re: Children in Need 2012: Christmas Special prequel + trailer

Yeah, that's a pretty shoddy fix. Could they not have just fiddled with the hue in that area until the correct green was achieved. Five minutes would have been better spent than the five seconds, heh-heh. Of course, that particular wallpaper is just a promotional image so doesn't really matter in the end, but still.

The fact they chose to cover it up like that rather than change the colour could indicate that the human skin colouring in the pictures is a plot point in the episode and not a mistake.

I did mention on page 3 that the actress had no green makeup on her lips

Perhaps some Silurians have latent chameleon abilities?
