Other than the reference to Rory constantly dying, and the whole notion that if you think your neighbour's a witch and treat your cupboard like an evil Narnia then the Doctor will come and visit your room, that episode was so damn dull. Hardly any funny lines, monsters weren't scary, so I spent the rest of the episode counting up the number of Dr Who episodes with children in, then working out how many of those were written by Moffat. Answer, a s***load.

The Peter Kay one!!!!! That needs to be thrown in to the Time War and suffere never ending death for eternity. Horrible. It also needs to poked. Forcefully.
L&M was an awful episode, but it introduced the young me to Mr Blue Sky .

Evil fat. =_=
Curse of the Black pearl spot was pretty bad too. Siren nurse.
But the Master will pull them out again with the something point star and they will come back together and destroy Earth with their planet of bad episodes. Then Moffat (The Master) will decide to sacrifice himself for the greater good and send them back to the Time Lord along with the planet of Bad episodes.

As the poster said, it wasn't written by Moffat. Not to mention Doctor Who is aimed at children. Therefore it's not crazy to think that the show wants something relatable for its target audience.

I know that. This reminded me of The Girl in the Fireplace a bit, which was one of Moffat's, and my mind turned back to thinking of how a lot of the episodes with kids in were written by Moffat. The Empty Child/Doctor Dances, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, the Girl in the Fireplace, The Eleventh Hour...forgotten the rest. Although come to think of it, a large amount of Dr Who episodes have little kids in anyway. What I want to know is, why is there a shortage of people in the 12-18 age bracket on Dr Who? Hmmm? Hmmm?

I'm not complaining, it was just something my mind turned to because the episode wasn't exactly riveting. I like the kids. The little one in Utopia, for example is adorable. I wish I could adopt him, except by now he must be about my age. :lol:

Oh right, sorry. I see your point. I can't actually remember anyone aged 12-18 in DW at all.

Yeah, my mind tends to wander when I'm not so scared I'm hiding behind the sofa. I'm also trying to remember anyone that age in Dr Who, other than Chloe Webber who I guess is meant to be about 12 or so? She looks it.

-blink- since when was there a naked River in the trailer O_o

As for teenagers on Doctor Who, how about the characters from SJ? But I do see your point, I guess maybe it would be a bit awkward for them to interact with teenagers? I'm not sure

What about the guy in Human Nature / Family of Blood? The one who has the watch and refuses to do anything with it for about an entire episode. He's around 17ish

What was with the glass eye? From what I can recall about the dolls houses I've played with, Doll's Houses don't come with glass eyes....

Especially ones that look very Atraxi-ish.
Or maybe the graphic designer can't figure out another colour for eyes.
