Doctor Who 6x07

This is a squee zone!

+ I am relieved that I am pretty okay with where they ended - it's a cliffhanger of sorts, but not a super distressing one. Amy and Rory are together and not in immediate danger!

+ AMY AND RORY. OH MY GOD, POOOOONDS. (Lol, Rory, bless your attempt to introduce 'Williams' back into the narrative, that's ... not going anywhere.) THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH, YOU GUYS. SO MUCH. The first scene, with Amy's monologue that was pretty obviously about Rory, and Rory being all badass, and then them hugging and crying and A BABY and I was crying tooo and oh my god. I can't even deal with their amazingness. ALL THE HEARTS.

+ So loads of us called River being the Ponds' kid. What I really liked about how it was done was the way it's River's superhero origin story. Amy even says so! And so finding out who River is really is just the beginning, there's still a whole lot of story left to tell. I'M EXCITED. And she's part Time Lord because she was conceived in the TARDIS, that is pretty great.

+ Yeah, the part Time Lord thing is really the big reveal as it seems to me, not necessarily that she's a Pond. Because that could mean ALL KINDS OF THINGS, and I would guess as one thing being that that's why the Doctor is able to tell her his name. And that moment of connection, when he realises, there is so much going on there and I'm sure a lot more that's going to be developed. WHEE.

+ And I'm now trying to put together all the pieces in my head to see how it fits and what questions there still are etc, but frankly my brain hurts so I'm going to have to leave it for now.

+ I LOVE MY SHOW. I LOVE MY TEAM TARDIS. a;lskdjas;dja

+ P.S. VICTORIAN CRIME-FIGHTING INTER-SPECIES LESBIANS WERE COMPLETELY AMAZING, PLEASE WRITE ALL THE FIC NOW.

Okay, so, whenever the HELL iTunes gets around to giving me the last two eps, is safe to watch without dying from terrified suspense until September, y?

Rory, bless your attempt to introduce 'Williams' back into the narrative, that's ... not going anywhere.

Hee! So true. I loved Rory a lot when he was trying to be cool with his new daughter and was getting teary and missing it by a mile. (And I loved what they did with Rory and the Sontaran, too -- the nurse who became a warrior and the warrior who became a nurse.)

So, can we now take it that River is/was also the little girl in the spacesuit and the girl we saw regenerating? Does this mean River can regenerate (which would make sense from the show's POV - they could still use River Song if Alex Kingston were unavailable.) And if River was the little girl in the spacesuit, does she remember that? I am intrigued.

Yeah, that could have been a LOT more horribly ... er, cliffhangery.

I do like the way Moffat sets up odd little things that you don't realise the significance of until much later, such as River being conceived in the TARDIS because Amy and Rory spent their honeymoon night there. The Doctor seemed to be all WE CAN HAZ NEW TIME LORDS NAO when he realised who River was, didn't he?

BTW, I'm trying not to get spoiled by Google, but was it the skating trip that was mentioned in SitL/FotD as the one where the Doctor gave River the screwdriver?

Yep. Which in turn, is at least foreshadowed in the RTD era with 'the Children of Time' which I vote for their new species name. It also goes along with the long held fan-theory that the Doctor has been manipulating the human race from behind the scenes to his own end. (A lot of people have ended that theory with 'because Time Lords are the evolutionary descendants of humanity'.)

Which in turn, was referenced with the Silence - who are in fact, manipulating the human race to bring about the return of the Time Lords. Or so it seems.

THIS. THIS. SO MUCH THIS!!!

I am still processing, but I really enjoyed the episode. The moment when the 'baby' melts, even though it was expected, made me flinch. Karen was brilliant in this.

:D

Yay Superhero Origin Story! And that scene over the cradle HOLY WOW- so much going on under the surface there. Beautifully played. I need to watch it again.

He doesn't tell her his name -- it's written on the cradle, and she can read Gallifreyan because she's part Time Lord.

I love love love River (and the show) calling out the Doctor on his season 5 Handlebars biz.

Also everything you said with double for Victorian lesbians. Do you think they know the Torchwood Victorian lesbians? Oh, that would make my day.

In summary, I am very happy.

I KNEW I COULD COUNT ON YOU FOR SQUEE!!

Seriously, I watched with three other people and they were all like, "Eh" and I was like, "I liked it!" and then I checked my flist and without even clicking cuts I coudl tell no one liked it from the "cranky" and "disappointed" moods. BUT FUCK THEM ALL, I WANT MY SQUEE! ♥ ♥ ♥

I've had this theory for a while that River actually knew exactly what was happening in "The Impossible Astronaut" and once I started thinking it was possible/probable that River was Amy and Rory's kid, I wondered if that wasn't why. INTERESTING.

The more I think about it, the more I really liked this episode (INTERSPECIES VICTORIAN LESBIANS FOREVER). I also like that it didn't feel like a really awful cliffhanger. Like, I'll be anxious and impatient because I miss their faces, but I won't be DYING to know what's going to happen next.

(The only thing I'm sort of disappointed about is that this puts an end to my four-way-TARDIS-funtimes, but at least there can still be platonic-TARDIS-nonsexy-funtimes.)

POOOOOOONDS!!! I keep thinking I can't love them any more, and then I realize just how wrong I was. *sigh*

I got spoiled on River's identity (properly spoiled, not just the good theorizing everyone's been doing) and was a bit apprehensive, but turned out to be well beyond pleased with how it was done.

I really, really enjoyed the episode, for all the things you and your commenters have mentioned, especially the non-distressing cliffhanger.

I like thinking that even after the Ponds have left the TARDIS (TOGETHER WITH GRACE AND DIGNITY INTO THEIR HEA), the Doctor will continually remember them because River will be in his life for (hopefully) a good while. *sigh*

What I actually really really loved was "He's not a warrior." "Then why's he called the Doctor?" Even before River explained it for the audience it made me so happy. I mean, this is also an army comprised of priests and clerics. These things have clearly changed over time.

I think this makes River Amy/Rory and the Tardis's baby. but where is the baby now - and if they rescue her as a baby that really fucks up the whole of the last season so they can't. And Amy and Rory have to deal with not finding their baby until they meet River..
