SFX teasers for a Good Man Goes to War

And as a note to those who don't really click spoiler tags, none of these are spoilers tbh. They are spoiler-free teasers.
Spoiler:
Show
  1. It is amazing – a true five-star episode
  2. There are lots of spaceships – and that’s just in the teaser
  3. There is a very Star Wars feel (The Empire Strikes Back especially) even down to the shape of the windows and the music
  4. It’s action-packed and feels so much more epic than a usual single parter
  5. There are lots of suprise guests stars (and some will be a surprise) but unlike in “The Pandorica Opens” none of them feels wasted – they all have a chance to shine…
  6. ...Apart from one maybe
  7. It cracks along at a hell of a pace
  8. There are some revelations that really will make your jaw drop
  9. There is a terrific battle scene at the end (which more than makes up for a slightly underwhelming and confusingly directed one in the first half)
  10. Although there’s lots of time travelling, it’s not a timey-whimey-reliant plot.
  11. The Doctor produces something very revealing from the TARDIS
  12. Rory says something very funny to an old enemy that you can’t believe has never been said before
  13. It’s a great episode for both Rory and Amy (and Matt Smith is as brilliant as ever, especially in a sudden, unexpected emotional moment)
  14. A throwaway line from last season becomes a major plot device
  15. Somebody is asked to make a donation
  16. Somebody very unexpected is playing doctors and nurses
  17. We get to see somebody’s muff
  18. Rory is definitely cool
  19. Look carefully at the monitor screens…
  20. …And the corridors




:teeth:

The most curious one is A throwaway line from last season becomes a major plot device
:eek3: don't put me down for picking up the 'everything is red' thing in dr who, because i'm [quite illegally] watching The Lodger, and this conversation happens:

Doctor: you (to amy) write the note and I'll change that [word i can't make out]
Amy: have you got a pen?
Doctor: yeah, but make sure it's a red pen

I know, I know, he said red because the note in the window for the available room was written in red, but it could have so easily be written in any other colour...

I AM TELLING YOU there is an unecessary excess of red and I want to know why!

The lodgers front door is red.
Amy wears something red every episode - the only except I can find is Amy wearing black in day of the moon, but even in The Beast Below Amy is wearing a nightgown with red socks.

RED SOCKS.

plus, I would rep you for agreeing with you but it turns out I've already repped you recently :'(

So does this mean the River in this preview has already done the battle as she knows for a fact that Doctor finds out who she is? :confused: Stupid timey wimey
Spoiler:
Show
River has already done it, I believe. There's a River from two points in her timeline in that episode.


And further points about the clip:

Spoiler:
Show
It appears River has just been on an adventure with The Doctor and is just getting back to the Storm Cage, as she's dressed in non-prison clothes and is carrying her diary, and then gets back in to the cage

Pretty sure River has a set of fairly plain clothes for the Storm Cage. This outfit looks like a stormcage/prison outfit to me:

I don't think that's a prison outfit. We've seen her in stormcage on different occasions and she seems to wear her own clothes as opposed to a prison outfit.

More backtracking:

In the Time of the Angels the Doctor says: 'I'll never be done saving you'
In TIA he says 'I thought I'd never be done saving you'

Moffat is a very clever man but WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!?

That's not childish, it's called humour. It's funnier than anything Matt Smith's character's done.
It was hilarious, but also childish. Also, the jelly baby thing was a reference to the 4th Doctor, not being childish. :rolleyes: Matt Smith's character has done some pretty funny things as well. The thing with the glasses and the escaped fish, for instance. :lol:

"Are you pregnant?" Has got to be among the greatest things ever said on Doctor Who. "Don't worry, we're doctors!" from the same episode was also quite good :p:

Something I just realised about River

Spoiler:
Show
Rory says 'our baby' in the preview clip about his and Amy's baby. So assuming he knows for a fact that it's his, this means the kid can't be River. When Rory was erased from time earlier in the series, River still existed (The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang)...am I right or is timey wimey-ness messing with my head again? :eek:

So either River isn't the baby or Rory isn't the father And if Rory isn't the father, who is? Because if it's the Doctor, the baby still isn't River (incest in DotM anyone? ) So....thoughts?
