    I've never actually heard of the 'Nth Doctor'?

    Are you joking? if you're serious then what he means is that along with him still being "The Doctor" there are traits/morals/ideals which are more tied to specific regenerations. So while the doctor has used guns before it was one of Ten's "things" that he was very "anti-gun" when possible. "Nth doctor" was used as "____ Doctor" where depending on which way you are saying he would react would depend whether it's the First Doctor, Second Doctor, Third etc.

    If you watch the latest trailers, it looks like the Doctor fires the gun to put out a light above him - almost definitely takes place in the Weeping Angels episode.

    Getting back to the topic in hand, (there is a thread that deals with the whole of the new series, isn't there?) Looking forward to meeting the new Doctor and Amy Pond. There's quite a few guest stars in this. As for the time, the BBC Seem to think more of Lord Lloyd Webber than a Lord of Time?

    Dunno if it's been posted yet or not; but Moffet said in a video on Blogtor that Eleven doesn't get R&R post-regeneration; it's straight in non-stop. This could be interesting XD

    Very few Doctors do get R&R, only really 5 and 10 had a long period off their feet, the rest tend to get up and go (at least 3 of which did so out of a hospital), but are a little shakey. Matt will still be a little shakey though if the Duck Pond scene is anything to go by.

    The duck pond scene looks really light hearted, for the most part.

    How long 'til it airs; I'm Australian and stupid

    I'm very excited to see the new Doctor in action I've got a feeling that he'll be very good, I hear that the episode starts off straight after the end of the Christmas/New year's special.

    well you wouldn't want to have to moderate yourself for spamming now would you? SQUEEEEE is everyone's current main thought (definately mine!) If only I had access to the BBC HD channel...

    I'm undecided on the theme. Would have liked to have heard the closing a bit more but the idiot had tointerruptand say the 'up next' stuff!


    As for the rest of the show, it had me laughing, scared, almost every emotion and that was one sequence!


    I feel we're in very safe hands. Even though we had seen the TARDIS interior and the costume before hand, the reveal was fantastic and that shows in the way the new team have brought this together is wonderful.


    Well done everyone involved in Cardiff!

    I agree. Awesome episode but the intro must burn in hell.

    Did that Dalek have the British flag under his eye o.o
