    let's not forget guys that the only reason most of you guys are disappointed is because you knew all the hints and clues beforehand. My brother avoided all spoilers from the start and he's so shocked about the episode.

    other things:
    1. did anyone manage to pick up on the soldier enemy man [from the gay agenda couple] saying to the headless monks 'it's a lot of red in here, i hope its not covering up...' something something i don't know the full quote, but RED!
    2. STAR WARS
    3. I don't get why there was a load of 'Jenny' hype, she contributed very little to the episode.
    4. I nearly died when Sontaron Strax died :'( HE WAS A NURSE DAMMIT WHYMOFFATWHY

    It was Lorna who died, no? But I agree about the hype.

    People don't put up a balloon to announce that they're having sex.

    The only water in the forest is the River.

    Told you that you wouldn't guess it until the actual context was given.
    Yeah, I really like how that worked out.

    Why was River's name on the crib? I thought it was the Doctor's crib?

    This is very true. Though I wasn't disappointed, I thought it was a great episode, I'm very annoyed with myself for reading all the spoilers and things

    I'm more shocked at the teaser of the next episode!

    "Let's kill Hitler" :eek:
    Have to wait months for that
    it was such a sad, dramatic episode, and then they showed 'Let's kill Hitler' and I just burst out laughing! it was like 'yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay let's kill hitler!'

    Considering that River is Amy's daughter, that makes her the girl from The Impossible Astronaut, meaning that River is the Astronaut does it not? Correct me if I'm wrong, I can't remember much of The Impossible Astronaut

    Me too - it was brilliant. Reading all the speculation and spoilers etc. really made me appreciate how clever the whole thing was.

    Well of course it's going to be obvious or disappointing if you read spoilers, trawl the internet or spend time in a spoilers and speculation thread. :facepalm2:

    I know what you mean. But, at least we can hold onto the hope that the episodes in September may surpass our expectations as I for one don't really know what I'm expecting :teeth:

    It just dawned on me - how was that ending meant to be such an amazing cliffhanger we'd need 3 months to take it in?

    When the kid was conceived, it was exposed to the time vortex whilst on the Tardis (The wedding night when they shagged)

    This episode actually tells us quite alot/hints at the origins of Time Lords which is fascinating.

    They were also once a human race whose exposure to the schism/vortex on Gallifrey made them time aware
