But I also liked the more detailed insight into the Silurian society we got.
Really? What insight was that? It was a completely hackneyed military vs. politician rubbish that any writer worth his employment would have ruled out as trite.

I just liked that we got to see a bit more of their society than usual. It's what I like about the old show, too.

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

Thought it was pretty good myself. Yeah there were some cliched spots, but it was still damn entertaining overall. And it actually got a bit darker and more complex than I was expecting too-- what with the Doctor being tortured, a kid appearing to be borgified, Alaya being electrocuted, and Rory dying.

I especially liked that we saw some humans acting in less than noble ways here, whether it was the father offering to help the prisoner escape to save himself, or the mother acting out of complete distrust and paranoia every step of the way. It's nice to see people acting in such flawed, human ways on this show (instead of just being cartoonishly evil like the Saxons).

^LOL sometimes I share the same thoughts...it's like we're dissecting Smallville or something.
Ha ha, I know. There have been some episodes I haven't been crazy about (Victory, Vampires), but it's hard for me to get all that angry and upset about it-- especially when I realize this is mainly written to be a kid's show.

Yet everyone approaches it like it's another BSG or Babylon 5 or something. lol

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

Nearly 87% so far on our poll has Good or Brilliant, nice to see . I do look forward to the final 4 episodes and hope Moffat hasn't backed himself into a corner.

Now I think I might watch some Classic Who

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.
But there's no reason to think that Ten's TARDIS travelled to 2010 before plummeting back to Earth in 1996.

Well, the date the Doctor read (Flesh & Stone) was 6/20?/2010, presumably when whatever causes the crack/Amy problem started (which I believe coincides with the day the actual episode will air).

Yes. And that same episode also establishes that that was to be the day of Amy's wedding to Rory, implicitly linking the explosion to Amy, not to the Doctor's regeneration.

Her wedding to who? Is this Rory guy some character we haven't seen yet?

If you're going to be speculating about new characters, could you PLEASE have the decency to use spoiler tags?

Was going to give it good but the finale made it Excellent though how did Lea dye from a taser ?. Rory is gone from memory but his actions cannot be? otherwise well events change from previous episodes and then things don't make sense...

grr time travel
Because tasers can kill if a person is hit over and over by one which is what she did.
Tasers affect different people differently, so who can tell how one might affect a cold-blooded, intelligent saurian? Maybe their hearts are simply more receptive to being disrupted by an electrical charge than a human's is, maybe she had a defect.

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

For the record, there have been hundreds of deaths reported linked to Taser use. I've always been rather opposed to the way they have become casual devices of coercion/compliance rather than strictly an alternative to deadly force when appropriate so personally I liked the rather cruel way it was portrayed.

As to the episode, I thought it was a decent old school yarn. I can see it being considered cliche but for nuWho it felt kind of fresh. It felt a little different to me anyway. I didn't expect Rory to get wasted, I'm glad I wasn't spoiled on that.
