    Had the horrifying realisation that last year was Jonny shark jumping, (pretty much everyone working on the show at that point had been there since S1) and this year was when they found his diary.

    Doctor Who is Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

    Alright. Still has the Doctor leaving a TARDIS on an unknown planet, not botheting to make sure such technology not fall in the wrong hands.

    Ahhh.. Thanks to you and Starkers for the clarification. That kind of takes a bit of wind out of the sails, but how cool for them to have been able to say that they "played" the Doctor, actors or not.

    Does anyone know what happened to the Dalek time ship Ian and Barbara took back to the 1960s?

    Returned back to its planet of origin? I mean, that's what I would assume. Its also what I would assume with the TARDIS, except the frickin' planet WAS BLOWN TO SMITHEREENS!

    It became Coal Hill School basement. Always a ton of shady Dalek Tech down there.

    I'm pretty sure it was left on whatever planet the Doctor and companies first met the human survivors. She would've had to taken it there to pickup her own TARDIS. There shouldn't be any more humans about.

    And that was definitely not Earth because we saw at least one planet in orbit in "Ascension of table Cybermen" (a ringed one at that!).

    It would also follow The Doctor's plan in The Parting Of The Ways, where he was intending for the TARDIS to return Rose to Earth then lie abandoned to quietly die.

    Abandoned new build house won’t really work for a dying Tardis will it.

    He used a Cyber-Timelord as a TARDIS like Dr. Reinhardt rode Maximillian.

    There’s a shedload of TARDISes on Gallifrey just there for the taking. One of them being left on Planet Whatever doesn’t make things appreciably worse. It’s no safer on Gallifrey now that nobody’s around there to guard them.

    I'm sure if the Timelords had been alive they could have remote recalled any lost TARDIS out there.

    I thought that the finale was fine.

    The Cyber-Time Lord was an interesting concept. The ideas that the Doctor was found, is the source of the regenerating power of all the other Time Lords, and has many forgotten lives are also interesting.

    I love Whittaker as the Doctor.
