    Loved all the Nerys jokes.

    A good running joke involving a never seen/off-screen character always tickles my funny bone.

    And if they ever introduce her as a character... Nana Visitor please! (Even though I know she has already appeared in Torchwood!)

    Does anybody else want the new and empty TARDIS to stay filling up with small things here and there?

    A long scarf over the bannister, a hat rack by the door... ;)

    Currently we have a brand new house, and over the next few years, it will get more lived in ;)

    And of course never to have a coffee related accident again, put in a kettle for a cuppa tea instead! Lol

    5 million overnights.

    So turns out there were no hordes of people waiting for Tennant and Davies to return to save the series from Chibnall and Whittaker.

    So how did they round the cortical problem by “letting it go” (whatever that means) men don’t understand so I need either a woman or transgender to explain it to me (apparently).

    Did any of you guys see Georgia Tennant’s Instagram story? She’s amazing and hilarious at all times on it, but for the show airing last night she did a Doctor Who themed watch party and had David wear a jumper with Tens face on and a Fourteenth doctor cutout :lol::lol::lol:
    Her insta is always gold tbh

    What do you mean?
    I’m pretty sure it was just a joke about “men never let things go but as girls we always let things go so we’ll just do that with this”. I’m pretty sure it was just a kind of joke (i’m the target audience for said joke and didn’t fully understand, i’m pretty sure it wasn’t a serious way of getting around the issue)

    The way I understood is they chose to sort of regenerate Into a version of themselves that is not in metacrisis?
    Or transition into who they really are…
    Make of that what you will.

    Really? The overnight figure wasn't far off the consolidated figure for The Power of the Doctor! it's already higher than the consolidated figures for the last four episodes of Flux, Eve of the Daleks and Legend of the Sea Devils. It'll be very interesting to see what the final figure is likely to be but I think we can almost guarantee there'll be another million to add on, at least.

    It'll be interesting to see what the AI figure is also.

    That was great. The part where Donna and her mum called the Doctor an idiot about misunderstanding about Wilf had me laughing. I really loved the use of all the old music cues. And I was about to burst if they'd completely burnt down the console room set in it's first appearance. Did it blow up because of the coffee? The TARDIS is so British it couldn't stand them drinking coffee instead of tea? (I'm joking)

    Well, the TARDIS made the coffee, so the Old Girl shouldn't complain.

    Knowing her, she likely put the coffee machine on the console KNOWING the Doctor would show off and Donna is clumsy with coffee as an excuse to get them back together for another adventure! Although we still have the possibility that someone else is messing with the Doctor and Donna's destinies... and not Dalek Caan this time ;)

    Not visually, but it's almost certain he's the "boss" that the Meep threatened to tell about the Doctor's presence.
