Anyone who can understand timey wimey better than me:

If River was Amy's daughter, surely that means she can't interfere with her mum's past? Such as saving her in the Byzantium or whatever....:confused: Also, would BBC really do that? It's heavily implied that the Doctor and River are in some sort of relationship (especially after she kisses him in DotM)....but being in a relationship with one of your past companion/best friend's daughter??


And rewriting story arcs:

Spoiler:

Steven Moffat doesn't seem the type to rewrite a story arc just for the sake of it...I'm pretty sure Amy will have a separate story arc to River....Okay more 'I hope' than 'I'm sure' but still

Why does he have to rewrite anything? All he had to have done was to write the Amy character before she appeared on screen...

Because if River was

Amy's daughter
he'd have to rewrite River's story arc to accommodate for that

Hmmm though I suppose it could have always been the plan from the start...:holmes:

In the whole series altogether? 7. However there is just the one more before the mid series break.

:yes: That's definitely Moffat's style. (I'm not confirming/denying the theory btw I just wouldn't go with that logic)

I've got a few questions about Amy:
1) At what point do we assume she became a ganger?
2) Where is she now?
3) How long has the Doctor known?
4) Does her being a ganger explain why her pregnancy was fluctuating or...?
5) Why does eye patch lady still pop up?
6) What on earth do they want Amy for? If she were pregnant, why couldn't the pregnancy just run naturally?

Spoiler:
Show
I'm guessing the assumption is that the Doctor who was killed in ep1 is also a ganger?


(Original post by Katie_louise)
Really?
In this episode, yes. Although it obviously isn't.

Apparently there's a few spoilers floating around about the identity of River. Someone leaked it. Just be careful out there. :p:

In this episode, yes. Although it obviously isn't.
1) It has to be before episode 2. As in episode 2 we first see her encounter with kovarian, the eye-patch lady. Some people are speculating that it was between the three month gap between Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. Some think that it's even before TIA

2) We don't know yet.

3) This is under speculation too. It's possible he knew at the end of episode 2, it's possible that he didn't know until episode 5. I can't remember the quote that evidenced the theory he might have known in episode 2, but it was a convincing one. Was posted a couple of pages back.

4) Yes, as real Amy is pregnant, but ganger Amy isn't. Which also means she must have become pregnant after her ganger was made.

Referencing the above post: If anyone posts spoilers of the identity of River, please state explicitly that that is what's in the spoiler!

In this episode, yes. Although it obviously isn't.
1. Personally I think the three months between TIA and DotM
2. Held captive by someone/eyepatch lady
3. We can't be sure, I'd guess some time before Rebel Flesh
4. I think so
5. Because she was linked to real Amy
6. Because they're evil aliens hell bent on

4- Not necessarily. The Silence could have taken the baby out of the clone Amy.

"Why did you tell me you were pregnant?"
"I was, but I'm not any more, I mean, I thought I was."

It looks like a genuine stutter, but it might support what you're saying. What if she genuinely WAS pregnant then wasn't any more? Good catch. But I'll stand by my original speculation

DT did 4 series (if you count the specials as a series), MS has done 2 now. But wait a minute, of course MS should have done 4 series by now, DT did after all didn't he? :facepalm:

How do you reckon that DT would have saved everyone then? A few of the characters sacrificed themselves last night.
DT would have made sure they all realsied he was in charge the electric volt thing would have been put down first ganger of buzzer isnt killed all of them leave in the tardis

I'd like to state that it wasn't DT that wrote the script The episode would have been incredibly similar if the Doctor was still DT (just less adorable as Matt Smith is the epitome of adorable )

A DT "Almost People" would just involve lots more running, and snarling angry face occasionally

Yeah, a lot of yelling at the humans and gangers alike. Not to say I don't love DT, I do. It just irks me when people cling to his Doctor. MS is the Doctor now and he's doing a damn good job

I'm also going with this because it would explain why she saw Madam Kovarian in the orphanage because she had already been kidnapped but that doesn't explain why the Silence kidnapped her again?
but the doctor pointed out that amy 'had put a little weight on'?
and the sickness feeling amy had before she went to the bathroom in the whitehouse?

or are they just red herrings?
and I have used the term red herring correctly?
