It could be. I hope it isn't.

It's been set up to be amazing, so it'll be hard for it to actually live up to expectation. I'm already worried as it's only 45 minutes long - it needs an hour.

Oo err, it depends... The Doctor has been a bit feeble and helpless of late, with the occasional flair of his true colours ('As usual, you have a choice. You deactivate yourselves, or I deactivate you')... But essentially relying on others to bail him out of the problem...

So what would be ideal for next week's episode? Well besides the obvious requirement that he doesn't just escape death too quickly, it seems perhaps from the preview that, in contrast to the end of Smith's first season, many of his allies may be coming for him as opposed to all of his enemies... After which we ideally need The Doctor (because we know he obviously doesn't die permanently ) to emerge victorious in a triumphant display of his genius and demonstration of the dangers of crossing him, as opposed to flailing around helplessly...

Of course I'm anticipating he's just going to sit around and somehow be saved entirely by his chums, who seem to inevitably do all the work at the moment... Just my take on it.

Time to watch Closing Time. Been out and to get the poll up on episode thread popped into my uni library on the way home, otherwise you get shot down with people saying 'where's the poll'.

Couldn't resist watching the sneak peek of next week's episode first however.

I just kinda think that it can't be resolved in a satisfactory way in one episode and it's just gonna end up being a huge disappointment.

This has probably already been realised by people months ago but I think I've figured out the significance of the eyepatches.
Spoiler:
Show
In the final scene of tonight's episode Kovarian was wearing her typical eyepatch however she was accompanied by the two Silents. River forgot about them as soon as she looked away but it was clear that Kovarian was aware of them the whole time. Then in the prequel the two soldiers guarding the Silents in the tanks were also wearing the eyepatches. I'm presuming from this that if Madame Kovarian and her soldiers are working with the Silents somehow then they're wearing the eyepatches as a way of preventing them from being forgotten.
Apologies if I'm months late and have just wasted everyone's time but it suddenly seemed really obvious to me.

Indeed, I and many others here agree with you. It's possible that

the eyepatches hold an image of a silent on the inside so you can never look away (and subsequently forget)

But doesn't an image of a silence, eventually, fade away like Amy's video?

I can't entirely remember tbh :o: but assuming that's true, then
Spoiler:

perhaps there's some kind of technology involved whereby looking at a real silent strengthens the image on the patch, so that it never fades?

Meh, in this series the rules are out of the window...as in The God Complex, where the image of an angel wasn't an angel.

I think he will make it look like he dies, then somehow burn a flesh model of himself. Or he will just say meh lets create a paradox, we can always do clever stuff to make it all better.

I think the last series has been brilliant.

It wasn't an actual image though, it was a meta-physical hallucination of an angel. Whereas everything else is a physical copy of an angel. If you want these manifestations of fear become real angels, then the memory of them would also create an angel - by that logic.

I have to agree, i just don't think 45 minutes is long enough to fit a satisfactory ending into I do think that there will be quite a few O: and very epic moments but some moments, the ending particularly, I fear will be not so up to scratch

But I hope that the next episode will answer the following questions because there are a few questions that need (well, that I at least want :P) answering :P

1) How/why did the Silence/Kovarian put little River in the spacesuit in the first place?
2) Why an astronaut? Is there a particular reason why is has to be an astronaut? Perhaps it's because the Silence/Kovarian put little Melody (as we saw in TIA) into a spacesuit to 'change' her for a human life/brain wash her and they want to continue to image of the impossible astronaut?
3) What is the question?
4) Who/what is that black blob/person hiding behind the shed at Lake Silencio?
5) Who/what exactly are the Silence? Are they the Silent species we have seen since the beginning or a collection or species? etc
6) So if the Doctor doesn't die....why is River still in prison? O:
7) What's going to happen to Rory
