Re: The Last Day

Thanks for posting it in a new thread... I posted it in the 50th thread, but should have started a new one for it.

It was pretty cool, but I'm not sure I understand the whole point of the premonition talk and such at the beginning.

Re: The Last Day

No one does.

Considering this was originally a DVD "exclusive", I don't find anything particularly special about it. Granted, its neat as an action scene, but it really isn't a spectacularly informative piece. And its fairly dissapointing, coming off the heels of Night of the Doctor. But, I suppose its our own fault for expecting something equally wonderful.

Indeed... Night of the Doctor set the bar INCREDIBLY high.. Because of that, it's going to be hard to come close with anything other than the actual anniversary special.

Re: The Last Day

Reminds me a lot of the opening of Halo.

It's okay for what it is. I wanted it to get to its point a lot faster than it did.

I liked it. It was quite intense due to the ego-shooter perspective and also chilling due to what happened. It shows just how far the Gallifreyans had become in their war attitudes if you compare it to Gallifrey in the old show.

Re: The Last Day

I doubt any future mini-episode will EVER top Night of the Doctor. But still, I thought this was pretty good, just because it's always fun getting another glimpse of Gallifrey.

Re: The Last Day

By the way, for some reason, I always thought that Arcadia was a planet, not a place on Gallifrey. However, I can't remember what details (if any) we learned about it previously.

It is a planet, as mentioned by Amy Pond in "Vincent and the Doctor", but that doesn't mean that there aren't other places also named Arcadia.

An official statement in The Radio Times calls the charge “an error on the part of iTunes,” saying:

This should have been free. We’re waiting to hear back from them about how this will be rectified.

I assume that Apple will be refunding folk in due course. At least, I hope so

Re: The Last Day

You know, I hate to say it, but it is getting harder and harder for me to take the Daleks seriously. The more that special FX improve and we see Doctor Who being filmed in HD, the more ridiculous and dated the Daleks look. They just aren't scary!
