Ok... so when America got Torchwood before us, I was a bit annoyed but could deal. Similarly, when Canada was getting it before us, I thought it was logical since America was getting it before us. BUT AUSTRALIA?!?! WHAT THE ACTUAL ----?!?! That's just ridiculous...

They can do whatever they want, they paid for it.

They probably did which is why they are getting it at the same time as the US.

After all in Australia Doctor Who is usually transmitted a couple of weeks after the UK transmission date so maybe the Aussies paid for Torchwood or paid extra or something.

I reckon it was just rubbish. Also who doesn't offer to help regardless of who it is?


Having watched AGMGTW again, how on Earth is Rory the last of his kind? :lolwut:
He's the last centurion

It was a co-production between BBC Wales, BBC America and Starz, according to all the information I could muster up :sadnod:

Mehhh. Doesn't matter. Doesn't change the fact I'm not waiting for the BBC broadcast...

It was paid for by America, mostly, who give a lot to Australia due to them having quite a lot of people there and certain connections.

We're a blip.

I would recommend watching it on the BBC as low ratings could cause America, Canada and Australia to be the ONLY ones to get it.

I will watch it again, probably, on Thursday, plus my mother watches it also (which means at least someone in my house will be watching it) so they're not losing anybody. I'm just not waiting until then to watch it.

How many other plastic-centurions-who-have-mysteriously-become-human-again have you seen?
I haven't seen any, time was reversed back when the cracks closed so Rory never died at all and then made into an auton.

Well only in one regard that he remembers being one, he didn't in the end become one as the universe was reset.

Slightly off-topic, but can anyone tell me what the music played during Davros' "How many more?" speech in S04E13 is? I can't find it on the soundtrack! Well, at least not on the 30-second clips that amazon gives you.

It should be "The Dream Of A Normal Death" taken from series 3.

Ah yes it is, thankyou!

That would explain why I can't find it on the S04 soundtrack :P

But he still remembers being the Last Centurion - which is all that really matters.

While not about the tv show, there is a 'new' Doctor Who story out there... The Crash of the Elysium


Full Times review:
Spoiler:
Show
If you want to know what it’s like to help Doctor Who save the Universe, come and see this new show from the immersive theatre company Punchdrunk. Well, I say “see” — really you’re in it more than watching it. This is the first family outing from the company fêted for Gothic promenades such as The Masque of the Red Death and Faust. But there is nothing tame about the way that Punchdrunk involves all of its audience, whether 9 to 12 year olds there on their own, 6 to 8 year olds accompanied by an adult or, I’d imagine, those of 13 and up at the newly added evening performances.

You may not find yourself teary-eyed with terror, as my 6-year-old daughter did when the smoke filled the murky rooms and things went bump in the nightmarishly clogged corridors. But the director Felix Barrett, with a script by Tom MacRae from an idea by the Doctor Who supremo Steven Moffat, makes sure to keep us under some sort of pressure at all times.

So, as we run along the quayside to help three soldiers tasked with exploring a crashed alien spacecraft, change into our decontamination suits and then enter the vessel, the ordinary world is soon squeezed out. The design is distressed, detailed and dark enough that we only look where Barrett wants us to look. I found myself in a glorious state of disbelief, knowing in my head that I was in some old hut at the Manchester International Festival, yet allowed to feel in my gut that I was indeed upon the Elysium, following video messages from the Doctor (Matt Smith) to help to find the Tardis.

Brave and bold as these soldiers are, they’ve clearly never watched Doctor Who, so it’s down to us — well, the children — to respond to the clues we’re given and save the day. Or so it seems: really we’re on a well- regimented ghost train. I can report that, despite the actors coping with aliens that they are less familiar with than we are, they’re just as good with an overwhelmed girl. Keeping in character, they reassured my daughter and ensured that a challenging experience ended up a happy one.

There are excerpts from Murray Gold’s stirring music from the series, which is a bizarre intrusion at first but soon enhances the sense that we’re all on an adventure. Adults should be ready for the usual plot contortions that don’t reward sage consideration. But who’s got time for that when you’re working this hard to complete your mission in one piece? What a joy.


I've been [my brother is the assistant stage manager] and while it's a tad childish, it's also the closest you'll ever get to being in Doctor Who.

That seems to also be the Fourth Dimension clues we were having a look through after each episode, the second last one giving us that flickering black and white video message from the Doctor.
Within the play there were 3 or 4 video messages from the Doctor [and someone else], so could well have been the same one replayed.

Either way, tis cool and I was #1

Steven Moffat on Doctor Who in 2012, the 50th anniversary and the relevance of Rory's many deaths.

A Full Series of Doctor Who for 2012 - Steven Moffat

Yesterday at Comic Con Paris Steven Moffat was interviewed by Alain Carraz regarding the confusion of Doctor Who 2012.

At first, Moffat said Contrary to what you may have heard, there will be the same number of episodes next year. At the end of the conference, Steven Moffat returned to the subject to add There will be the same number of episodes. But its true that there will be a change in the mode of distribution. I would explain it all. Later.

Steven Moffat has also confirmed that the BBC has already been approached about the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of the series in 2013. He confined to know their intention was to make the best year for a fan of Doctor Who . Their plans are very ambitious.

Asked by a member of the public on killing Rory, Steven Moffat said Rory was really dead once. Describing himself as a romantic, he suggested that we should not worry too much for the future of the character. However, he added that dead Rory leads to something. There will be a pay-off.

Finally, River Song, and the season 6 revelation, Moffat quickly added that River Song, you do not know anything yet!

source (in French)

Yes its been translated from French, using Chrome, I do not Speak French, but I'm sure I am right, I welcome anyone doing the same! Is it possible the Moff has just told us the opposite of what we where lead to believe?

Nice info.

But I don't see anything that is the opposite of what we were led to believe?
Neither do I but I thought it was worth posting.

I posted it mainly for the bit about Rory tbh.

I'm not actually craving Doctor Who at all... I might start craving it a bit when we've got a date, and it's a bit closer to that date, but I'm really not fussed right now.
