I seem to recall that Rory doesn't remember the 2000 years he waited most of the time. As he described it, it's like a door in his mind that he can only occasionally open.


It seems to be more of a passive memory, more of an echo than anything. If he actively thinks about it, he can open that door and remember every second, but otherwise (probably as a defense mechanism) his mind suppresses the memories.

At least that's how I understood it.

This week was a pretty lame episode with a very interesting ending. Next week is sure to be good, though I have a feeling that it will end in a cliffhanger.

Yeah what a waste of a episode. Really a filler eipsode of the doctor with River would had be much better. They could had done Jim the fish least it woulda tied the first to the last a little before the ending.

It's Dr. Who. It always ends in a cliffhanger.

Still, this time I really do wonder how Doc is going to get out of it. They seemingly sealed all his exits, he's at this point pretty convinced he's going to die for real. A lot of hinting about it, just like with the whole minotaur episode, where at the end it refers to his death as a grand gift for a being that old. It doesn't seem like the thing the Doc can fix with his screwdriver, not this time. I hope anyway, it would be quite a letdown. For all we know, it might end with the actual death of the Doctor, that would be a shock for sure.

I think we're going to get a "I knew my fate so I was able to change it" similar to how Amy Pond was able to release herself even though it was her fate to stay trapped in that containment facility for 37 years.

Though maybe that wasn't one of those "Fixed" points in time, whereas this is?

I thought it was, or at least referred to as being fixed. Still, there's a Christmas special planned (with bill bailey and alexander armstrong apparently, should be fun!), so they'll find a way.

Seen this on TWoP that some guy pulled off screenrant.com it the rhyme from the end of closing time.


"Tick tock, goes the clock, and what then shall we see?

Tick tock, until the day, that thou shalt marry me

Tick tock, goes the clock and all the years they fly

Tick tock, and all to soon you and I must die

Tick tock, goes the clock, we laughed at fate and mourned her

Tick tock, goes the clock, even for the Doctor

Tick tock, goes the clock, he cradled her and he rocked her

Tick tock, goes the clock and what now shall we play?

Tick tock, goes the clock now summer`s gone away

Tick tock, goes the clock all the years they fly

Tick tock, and all to soon your love surely die

Tick tock, goes the clock, he cradled her and he rocked her

Tick tock, goes the clock, till River kills the Doctor

Doctor, brave and good, he turned away from violence

When he understood, the falling of the silence"




If you go to screenrants doctor who section there are spoilers, you have been warned.

I saw it coming half way through the episode. Awesome episode now for a long wait. Best part is the question that was in plain sight. I was wondering what it was then it became so obvious. One of the best episodes of the season, the middle was rather slow.

It was a good ending. It would have been better as a series finale with the Doctor actually dying. I knew they weren't actually going to kill him, but that is the way that he would go out.

Best part is I called after LKH. Really crappy the whole question thing. The robot Doctor thing was kinda cute and make since why they introduced it in LKH(Moffat still doesn't get a pass on oit though).

Yeah it wasn't that great. Also Karen Gillan will be leaving the show too. Matt Smith said it on the Gram Norton show after it if you didn't stick around to watch that. These past couple specials and even seasons have been a little to light on the darker side of the Doctor.

Yeah. The christmas special didn't do much for me. It's a christmas episode for crying out loud! It should be a happy fun holiday adventure. Not every episode needs to have monsters hiding in the dark.

Can we please go back to having fun, exciting adventures in time and space? I'm tired of all these creepy monsters in the dark and mind games we've been seeing for the past few seasons. That kind of thing is fine every once in a while but season after season of it is not what I signed up for when I started watching the show years back.

It had some pretty funny parts though. I really liked his bit as the caretaker showing the kids around. This hammock has developed a fault.

And ignoring the absurdity of the opening scene, the bit on Earth between the Doctor (in the space suit) and Marge was fun. "Okay. Suddenly, the last 900 years of time travel seem a bit less secure." as she picks the lock on the "Tardis" with her hairpin.

I liked last years better. Especially the part where the old man is screaming at the doctor to show him the future, and he is. Turn around and himself as a child is standing behind him.

It's definitely not the best of the Christmas specials so far for me. A very forced happy ending, although when the Doctor showed them around the house was quite funny.

What a bunch of grinches! The glowing lights of the souls of the trees was magical and very christmassy. I loved that the forest needed a Mother to be reborn. I cried. I loved the ditzy, sad mother revealing how strong she was inside as a person, able to carry an entire forest in her mind, and see the space-time vortex.

I knew from the start of the episode that the husband would be saved by the Widow and the Doctor doing something timey-wimey. It was Christmas! It was just going to be a matter of how. It was the how that was interesting. I cried happy tears when they were reunited. Then I cried harder when the Doctor got to cry happy tears of his own at the end.

And who can't love an entire episode that is an homage to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe?


It was all very symbolical and familily and mushy and I loved it!

That's the problem, it was more Hallmark family special than Doctor Who. They needed to make another special like the ones under Davies instead of this mediocrity.

She always looks pretty hot to me, so maybe it's just you.
