On to matters unrelated to an episode I have yet to see, I'm watching Captain America, and I was a little amused to see a couple of actors I knew but hadn't expected - actors whose names I don't actually know, like the guy who played Cohen the Barbarian in The Colour of Magic, or - and more relevantly - the actor who played the Dream Lord in that one episode of Doctor Who. He even, funnily enough, has the bow tie.

IDK the PBS airdate for Sherlock, but both seasons are out on DVD and well-worth your money. Picture quality and able to watch over and over!-CF

No, Sherlock aired in May and I watched it. (And now I have to wait two years. T.T) What was the original British Airdate though? Then I can figure out when I can watch S7 of Doctor Who. (I don't have cable.)

Arrrrggg....so I have to wait 4 months at least. Must...not...click...on spoilers. :glare:

Yeah, I just rewatched The End of Time, and compared to Moffat, Davies really could be kind of insufferably bad at thinking the plot through. Moffat plans like Da Vinci engaged in random acts of technological supervillainy - he does it for fun, and he does it extremely well. Davies planned like water treatment plant technicians make a souffle - he isn't an expert, and planning meticulously would have gotten in the way of his funky space saviour motif.

It's refreshing to see a post affirming Moffat's genius and Davies' shortfalls. Too often do I see the opposite, mostly among people who don't want to think enough through Moffat's plots.-CF(However, we can give a little credit to Davies here and there. What he did to Donna was a total Moffat move. And he brought back The Master as John Simm!)

I still think Moffat has his flaws, mind. He hasn't yet reached the heights of Blink or The Empty Child yet. The Pandorica Opens was good, but then the whole Big Bang 2 reset was very Davies-esque, and all of his female characters seem to be 'feisty' domestic abuse-y types. And his plots are sometimes needlessly complicated and have distinct holes, or are a bit silly like the muddled up time in the S6 finale, with Churchill and a mammoth and stuff. Overall, series 5 and 6 were way better than 2 and 3 for me, and probably better than 1 and 4 as well, though those two are the PINNACLE of the RTD era.I really want a perfect Dalek story next time they turn up. VotD started off well before jelly bean Daleks and Bracewell being disarmed with love, and AotD was great but kind of lacked something....but this is maybe because of my own expectations of it. Still the best Dalek story for ages, though.Next time, I want Davros to be back in a big way (you'd have thought he'd have been put in the Asylum, really), with a more specific aim than convert/destroy everyone, and possibly working with the Doctor in some way. And lots of Daleks, too, possibly RTD Daleks in classic colours. Just a classic, perfect Dalek/Davros episode. I hate it when episodes are near-classics - Churchill and Daleks is a concept that could've been fantastic, but got let down by the apparent need for a Dalek redesign.- Tilius

I call them Skittle Daleks. XDDavros showing up in the asylum would have been awesome. But also would have been a much different, less emotional story. Because there's no way you could fit JLC and a Davros reveal in the same episode, especially for the series premier.Also, Tilius:

Spoiler
What I do like about this episode is the direction and the lighting. The special effects were good too. Every time I watch the episode I enjoy it more and more than I initially did, even though this has more holes than swiss cheese. Overall, a good start to the series, even if it has its problems (in my opinion).

I've just realised something.The image of a Weeping Angel is itself an Angel, so if you look at the Angel in the eyes, it will create an image in your memory. At the end of Blink, Sally took some photos of the Angels along with the transcript. Seeing as Sally and Larry obviously remember the event (and the pictures), an Angel is going to jump out of the photo or their minds and kill them, or at least zap them into the past. Larry also might have looked at the angel in the eyes when Sally found the doors were locked in Blink, so he must be infected...Dear God, no one is safe.

I never liked that image of an Angel stuff, it all becomes too complicated and is a bit silly anyway. It'd be okay if that was only the rule for the Angels in the Series 5 two-parter. Hopefully that's the case.- Tilius

Isn't it a popular theory that the Angels in Blink had come from the pictures? Meaning that the Angels emerged from the pictures, sent the Doctor to the 1960s, then hung around until Sally Sparrow came and froze them, but took the photos that they emerged from in the first place which the Doctor then took back in time slightly ready for them to emerge and send him back in time?

Don't think we really need spoiler tags anymore.

Some of us don't get BBC in any form, you know, and therefore haven't seen it yet.Also, I was able to find the episode on the internet a couple days back (HUZZAH), so now I can actually click on those spoilers. . .

Finally got around to watching the Pond Life shorts today. They're adorable! Especially the second one, with the Doctor first barging in like a little kid telling Mummy and Daddy there's a monster in his bedroom, and then awkwardly trying to act like a responsible adult and assure them it's all okay...Also, I'm a bit late on the Asylum of the Daleks talk, but...

Spoiler

the actor who played the Dream Lord in that one episode of Doctor Who. He even, funnily enough, has the bow tie.

Toby Jones. He's also the voice of Dobby in the HP movies :P

And Mr. Batley in the ITV miniseries Titanic!
