I am unhappy with the angels returning

Blink was excellent ... The Episode of modern Dr Who

I fear they will be watered down with repetition

It was a cheerful episode, perhaps they could've expanded on the whole Shakri character. They were assumed to a be a scary myth, just seems strange how they ended it so quick.

Next episode should be better:moon: even though River:sigh:Song will be back, I hope they don't keep mentioning her back story OR she doesn't say 'spoiii-lers':nooo:

I thought it was OK - there's a one bit that made me :lolwut: though - If the Doctor still had one heart running, wouldn't de-fibrillating him mess up that heart?

The cubes irritated me, but the actual villain is something new - Gallifreyan fairy-tales coming to destroy earth? Perhaps could have been slightly better executed though - it seemed a bit rushed...

Speculation on next week:
Spoiler:
Show

Next weeks could be really poor - angels, manhattan, the panoramic shot of the Statue of liberty... it couldn't be more obvious could it?

Maybe I'm getting older, but it's getting too unrealistic now.

I used to be fine with the mystical time travel, as they were careful to be quite scientific about it.

Now, though, it's nonsense. He waits ages to disarm machine things with the sonic, and when he does he just does it to one of them and then runs.

He sits around when he could just travel forward to when the black boxes open.

He says he'll "keep the tardis tuned to world news" when he already has access to all the news which was ever published.

It's like they're not thinking about the science anymore, so it ruins it for me

Good but not brilliant. Bit lackluster compared to some episodes.

I enjoyed the first 2/3rds of the episode but the ending was a let down. I'm guessing they needed a reason for the Doctor to spend time on earth with Amy and Rory but couldn't think of a better way of doing it.

Judging by the trailer, it looks like they might be going back to basics with the angels i.e. no neck snapping, just old fashioned sending you back to time but this is just speculation.

I hope she gets her throat ripped out and then someone goes back through time and rips each versions of her throat out. I'd even take Amy being killed as a child so River Song never happens. Actually, just kill Rory as a child. Sorted.
I'm guessing you don't like River.

I am unsure. Unsure whether I hate her more than I fancy Karen Gillan :beard:

Almost certainly, but it just seems so... pathetic to go for that, almost certainly no subtlety with that.

Would have been better if the Torchwood team broke into the house and tried to help the scenario with the Doctor, or if Martha was the leader of Unit >_>

I thought there was some sort of 5 year wipe that removed everything that happened to do with RTD :confused:

I loved that. Agree that the ending seemed a little rushed, but I'd been dying to see more of Amy and Rory's 'real' lives. And Brian is all kinds of awesome. I also loved having the Brigadier's daughter as new head of UNIT - nice nod to the old days, there. I somehow don't think we've seen the last of her.

Did anyone spot any of the speculated story arc clues

Christmas mentioned, lights flickering...

in this ep? I didn't, but I was watching it with some friends so wasn't always concentrating completely...

Maybe I just hate her so much I've wiped her from the universe in my own mind
