    Yes, this weekend is the Ponds' tearful good-bye. Clara begins travelling with the Doctor at Christmas.

    And then a long 4+ months

    But, maybe we'll get the other 8 by April, and then only wait a month or two after them to get a full season back to back, plus the 50th Anniversary Special and 2013 Christmas Special

    Hardly - I'm pretty sure it's going to be the back 8, anniversary, and Christmas next year, for a total of 10 episodes. They don't have time to shoot another 15 episodes to air in 2013.

    There's talk of them filming for a year, so I'd expect 15 eps. with season 8.

    It's already been confirmed by BBC, Moffat and Matt Smith that 2013 will consist of the remaining S7 episodes, an undisclosed number of specials similar to what we had in 2009 to celebrate the 50th anniversary and a Christmas special. There won't be another full season until 2014.

    I realized someone was going to make that mistake as I was typing it. Then I decided to leave it there anyway. :p

    Was that an intentional red herring, where it seemed like shit was gonna happen where people had stacked the cubes in groups of three? (Hence the power of three) Also, I thought when the countdown hit 3 some cool shit was gonna go down.

    Clearly, yet I felt hints were sprinkled throughout that the episode title was referring to something else. The actual power of three being kind of a let-down, actually.

    It was referring to something else. x^3 - x to the power of 3 - is also referred to as x cubed.

    ^^Indeed, Cubed was the working title for the episode, which I'm guessing is why Amy repeated the word "cubed" a few times in the episode's closing narration.

    "The Slow Invasion" would have been a much more interesting title. Missed opportunity!
