Rory's soft "I know" to Amy's declaration of not being able to have kids suggests to me they did get tested to see what the problem was. He is a nurse, after all. As you say, there's no definitive evidence, but it's just what I interpreted.
I'm sure they'd argued over it for a while so it's really nothing new between them. But there are options and Amy didn't seem to mention them or Rory either for that matter.

Well obviously having not seen any of it, not even having had them tell us any of it, all you can go on is how you interpret the scene. But that "I know" could mean he's agreeing that he always wanted kids and knows that she thinks she can't have kids. Doesn't mean they've had tests or that it's anything more than they haven't conceived yet so believe they can't have kids.

There's a lot they could do, and Rory is oblivious to the fact she left him for that reason, so it seems obvious they haven't discussed that part of it. Besides they have a super advanced alien who may have been able to help if they mentioned it, even if hospitals couldn't help. It's just another Amy being selfish moment disguised as her being caring.

This I'd agree with.

Well the overnight figures for "Asylum..." on the Beeb are in and it's 6.4m with a 29.3% audience share.

But DW usually gets a healthy ratings boost from people who recorded to watch later. So we'll have to wait another week or so for the final figure to come out, but it should be around the 7.7-8.2m mark

Truth be told, we can't even be positive she's incapable of having kids. She said she can't have them, not that she's incapable. This could mean that she's afraid she might produce another Time Head or that Aliens might come after their next baby as well. [/Devil's Advocate]

Obviously, we are meant to believe she is incapable of having kids, but, they could turn it around on us, if they choose.

I think it's safe to say the church wanted to make sure she couldn't produce anymore children like River, so made her sterile in fashion.

Does the Daleks not have access to the intergalactic internet? Wouldn't they wonder who this Doctor chap was that many cultures have records of fighting the Daleks but they can't remember?

That goes on the slippery slope that also contains questions like, "Given how much they know about him wouldn't The Silence keep an eye out to make sure the Doctor is really dead and hasn't just tricked them."

I think we have to wait until the next Dalek appearance before making any judgments there. It makes sense that they might not be able to ascertain who he is in those five seconds but who knows what they'll figrue out by next time?

With the Doctor erased from Dalek history, who is in their records as ending the Time War...?

It might be a case of "Whar Time War?"

I would guess she erased their interactions with the Doctor.

Average. This one didn't do a lot for me. It was way too easy for the Dalek's to get the Doctor. If it were that easy, he'd be dead by now. I didn't buy the reason that the Ponds were divorced. I didn't buy that the Daleks would put their psycho members in an asylum. I also didn't buy the conversion process, the Daleks don't do that. They grow mutants for that purpose. The Daleks have a Prime Minister?! Basically, there was just so much that wasn't quite right. There were things that I enjoyed, but there was as much that was wrong. So, average.

That's just begging for a photoshop contest. Anybody with some interesting theories on who got replaced in their records as the destroyer of Daleks...?
