Anyone think the fact that River is a 'Doctor' has any significance, possibly a timelord herself?

Glad you mentioned that:
Spoiler:

We've already seen a picture of Rory (I'm guessing) in his Roman gear and facing the cybermen. There's also a spoiler somewhere about a Roman invasion with a Roman chariot invading present day earth. There's a picture and a video.
Exactly. So by the line mentioned today which was something along the lines of them being driven out of Rome, and that being the reason for their downfall. If they weren't driven out of Rome

Spoiler:

Like in an alternate timeline, they would survive till modern day


I think our speculation may be bang on :teehee:

By getting Rory to use a condom?
At which point? Since she doesn't know when the child is conceived (then again we have no idea how often or how regularly they did it)

Madame Kovarian is oddly similar to Doctor Moon from Silence in the Library. The whole sequence with CAL dreaming of a library, and Doctor Moon overseeing her...
WOAH! Doctor Moon!! Anybody?

That doesn't really seem viable. If only a Time Lord could pilot the Tardis, surely the Doctor would know that. And if he did, he'd know Riversong was a Time Lord, which he doesn't... unless, of course, he's been covering it up for some timey wimey reason. :ninja:



I just looked at this scene again and I'm thinking it could be one of Moffat's subtle hints that's going to become key.

I also noticed, anyone seeing links between this and the Pandorica episodes, with the perfect prison and what not?
Oops. Ma bad. Forgot Riversong could pilot it as well XD


About the links between this and Pandorica...there's been quite a lot of throbacks to the last series. So much so, it's almost deja vu-ish, which I'm hoping is what Moffat wanted us to think about it, giving the unseen presence of the Silence throughout the last series

Could one of these timelines be a figment of Amy's imagination?

And I find it strange that the Doctor took exception to the Silents...they were not doing much wrong.
I did find that quite weird. Maybe Smiths Doctor is a lot more aggressive than Tennant and does not wish to save every race. Maybe he is more judgemental :holmes:

Is it a 'thing' that every Doctor does not wish to kill or was that a specific thing to Tennant.

Does anyone want to sum up the 23 pages I missed while watching So You Think You Can Dance and Britain's Got Talent?
A lot of it is (different) people repeatidly making the same speculation on who the little girl is, who is river, general stuff with the episode. To be honest, having read it all myself, there was only a little bit I found interesting.

Well, considering the Doctor killed two races/committed genocide, I'd say it was specific to Tennant but still something which he (all incarnations) avoided at all costs/until the situation compelled him.

I personally think so, the child may either be song or maybe the doctor and song's daughter?

Don't know if it was a Tennant specific thing but don't expect it to last for Smith's Doctor. Not much of a spoiler but apparently, Smith is going to be much darker and the days of merely saying he's the Doctor and having aliens fee (like in The Pandorica Opens) are over. He's actually going to be doing things.

Make of that what you will. There's also talk about:

Oooo actually, this could be true! In the first episode, Rory was cornered by the Silence when he and River found that area underground where the Silence were. River shouted out Rory's name, but we didn't see what happened to him. Then suddenly Amy feels a pain and tells the Doctor that she's pregnant. Maybe it was to do with the fact that something happened to Rory with the Silence at that moment...

He also said something about him being able to choose what he can remember or something like that, in today's episode?... Maybe Rory has more power than we thought.

And now that I think about it, how can a plastic centurion doll like Rory get Amy pregnant...
Because he is no longer an auton, he is fully human again.

Right, I'm **** at screenshots, but if you look at BBC iPlayer for the episode at 37:15 onwards, there are more than one laser killing the Silents.

Thinking whether we should do a website, with only one webpage with all the unanswered questions, along with theories. And then we evaluate which ones were spot on. :holmes:

By pressing some buttons they never knew existed in the Tardis?
