    The Dalek saying the doctor is regenerating is creepy . :)

    It's always exciting to get a new Doctor though.

    Is "the clock is striking twelves" a British expression, or is it unique to this?

    It is not a British expression. I think they are going for the hour is striking for the 12th Doctor not the time.

    Same way they say striking Elevens just before hand.

    That is true.

    And this is the first time since Christopher Eccleston was cast that I've known anything about the new actor to play the Doctor and that didn't really count since we knew nothing about what the revived show would be like. Matt and David were great but at the time I knew little about them or whether they were going to be good.

    Whereas I know Capaldi is a great actor and, at the risk of tempting fate, is bound to be a great Doctor.

    Oh, I get it. "Eleven's hour is over now; the clock is striking Twelve's."

    Might also be an allusion to Cinderella where the clock struck midnight and everything changed back for her.

    ^Well, yes, the metaphor of a clock striking twelve, as in midnight, has been around for centuries. It was the S at the end that threw me.

    Maybe I'm judging too harshly, but this episode feels really depressing (based on the trailer) for Christmas night. Might be a good one to record and watch the next day. I hope it's not as depressing as the trailer showed.

    Hopefully this episodes reconciles a lot of the problems with "The Name of the Doctor".

    I'm excited to see it though.

    I can't watch the Trailer until this evening when I get home.

    It's funny to hear this comment though, since, once of the biggest complaints about the Christmas Specials is that they are "too happy" and "always having Feel Good Endings" (IE: The Widow, The Doctor and The TARDIS having the husband being saved in the end)

    Excited but episode kinda looks contained. I just imagined something bigger.


    That S is a crafty fellow indeed.

    Anyone understanding what the Doctor is shouting after the Dalek declares him regenerating?
    I just can't make it out no matter how often I watch it.

    I like that they have feel good endings. It's a Christmas Special afterall.

    Oh, I absolutely agree, and that's been my reply several times when someone has complained about a "trite" "Feel Good Ending" for a Christmas Special :bolian:
