    What and where? We've not seen Tennant all the time, it's quite possible that he could have met a future version of himself between episodes/series/specials/whatever.

    (Or am I being very tired and therefore missing something crucial)

    And DT is lovely, but Matt is better (and only a few years older than me :teeth:)
    I actually don't know what I was thinking about when I made that post let alone actually remember making it :laugh: I was so drunk last night I can remember sod all

    DW books are awesome. Especially the audio ones that are voiced and narrated by the actors themselves. :ninja:

    They are awesome. And really well written as well. Not to mention some of them should have been turned into TV episodes.

    Never heard the audio ones. Always thought that was the lazy man's alternative to reading :teehee:

    Better looking.

    (I think he's just about a better doctor too, but quite happily admit that's highly subjective, and agree it's difficult to compare them)
    I guess good looks depends on your preferences as well. Personally, Tennant's hair does it for me, plus he's taller than Matt.

    Nope but no memory of making that last comment (which has kindly helped me figure out what time I got in) and I've accidentally slept through my lecture
    Glad to be of help! Hope it wasn't an important lecture.

    I envy your Kindle. I'm desperate for one!

    I know this might sound like a stupid question - but once you've bought the Kindle itself, do you have to pay a monthly fee to connect to the internet or whatnot?

    The wait's always worthwhile though.

    Oh help, lots of intriguing titles!

    "The Doctor's Wife" - that seems far too obvious to be River, don't you think? After all this speculation about who she is, it would seem a bit silly to give it away in the title of the episode. >_>

    I hope I'm right otherwise I'm going to be desperately disappointed with the writers' imagination.

    (Original post by Ape Gone Insane)
    Episode 7 - A Good Man goes to War :holmes:
    So, that's where River's going to kill someone, I guess. And the cliffhanger will probably be that we don't know who's killed... possibly. Although that might leave it far too easy to guess because it can't be the Doctor. Well, at least I don't think it can be. :confused:

    I need to stop reading this thread, I'm going to ruin it for myself.

    I just read this:

    No, you either buy wi-fi only and then connect through wi-fi only, or you get the 3G and then Amazon pay the connection fees.
    The kindle is crap for actual internet though, you can only really use it to download books.

    Well yeah, but everyone knows that's subjective :p:
    Nah, Tennant's hair puts me off a bit actually. Matt's floppy hair :coma:
    Anyway, I'm so small that all guys are taller than me :ninjagirl:

    So what's the point of getting Wi-Fi only if you can get 3G + Wifi and you don't have to pay a monthly charge? Or is WiFi only cheaper?

    And yes, I understand that the internet is a bit crap but I know you need it to download the books that's all. I have my phone/laptop for internet.

    Oh God, I'm so un-technological, sorry!!

    Aha, I'm so tall that most guys (including Matt Smith) are shorter than me! I think it's just DT's brooding character that gets me though. All for the sultry guy.

    To be honest, both are pretty hot. I wouldn't mind having either of them!

    Ah, I was hoping someone wouldn't pick up on that. Yes, I do. Just got a bit carried away.

    Plus for the last one, there wasn't anyone to quote really.

    Yeah, wi-fi is about £50 cheaper (and what I have, though I sometimes wish I had 3G, but that's just 'cause I'm lazy and don't want to have to walk down the corridor to the library to get on the internet for it)

    No worries :yy:

    Quite happily agree with you there.

    wasnt river song already killed off in the library episode? time travel is confusing :s
    (Original post by 30DiedOnMars)
    As was droned into us last series, "Time can be rewritten"
    The whole point of the River Song story line is that River Song had met the future Doctor.

    So whilst the Doctor now is having 'new' adventures with her, she had already had all of those adventures when we saw her die.

    Hence why she always says spoilers, she knows things that have happened which the Doctor is oblivious to since they happen in his future.

    Essentially we're seeing a younger River to the one who died.
