I've questioned it since it restarted. For a time-travel show, they're pretty shit at continuity.

I think the classic stuff was as bad, if not worse, when it came to the continuity. Oh, well. :-)
bionicbob Wrote:I enjoy Moffat's work. And I enjoyed RTD's run too. They both made great, good and bad Who episodes.

Sure. But I think that the ratio of bad episodes in RTD's day was higher. MUCH higher.

bionicbob Wrote:And even many "bad" Who episodes are better than a lot of the dreck on television.

We certainly agree there!

bionicbob Wrote:And as I said, emotionally this final performance of the Ponds really hit me hard. I loved it in that respect.

Well said!

bionicbob Wrote:For instances, if Amy Pond edited the mystery novel and wrote an afterward for the Doctor, then yes, clearly this whole adventure was a Fixed Point in history, but then shouldn't Amy's name have been on the Tombstone along with Rory's from the beginning?

Hmm. That made sense to me when I watched it, but I can't quite explain it now. I'll have to watch it again and see if I can give you a credible explanation.

bionicbob Wrote:And while it is was TOTALLY COOL having the Statue of Liberty as a Weeping Angel, it doesn't make any sense.
In a city that never sleeps, there is no way the Statue could have travelled around New York without being seen.
So yes, a very exciting and cool visual, but even by Doctor Who standards and rules, very unbelievable.

Of course no one saw the Statue of Liberty moving. The statues can only move when they aren't seen! Big Grin

(I know that's not what you mean. I'm just being a smart aleck.)

I guess I'm OK with it because the whole story doesn't hinge on the one Statue, and also, after the Ponds create the paradox, the Statue never moved anyway. Smile

bionicbob Wrote:I love Doctor Who. Really I do.
In fact, I think most people who post in this thread still love the show on some level or they would not continue to tune in to watch.
But just because we love it, doesn't mean we can't question it or be disappointed or hoped for some other outcome.

But despite my few and occasional nit picks,
the show is immensely entertaining and I always look forward to the next adventure. Smile

Sure, that all makes sense. You've very eloquently stated your case.

I guess I just get frustrated with fandom in general. It seems like people hated the RTD era when it was new and different, and now that Moffat is here, a lot of fans hate his stuff just because it's new and different. I've read so many posts lately pining nostalgically for the RTD era! (Not on this forum, mind you.) These type of fans won't like anything as long as it's new. And I'm afraid that if people keep complaining, Moffat will leave, and the next producer will give us more cheesy stuff like "Love and Monsters," "The Daleks in Manhattan," "The End of Time," etc., etc.

But, at any rate, you're all welcome to your opinions, and you've stated them very well. :-)
Have your tissue ready before watching this....

That's lovely and amazing. I wish it could have been included in the show somehow.

I was wondering why there was all this buildup with Rory's dad and then nobody went back to him in the final episode!
Just saw this on a friend's FB feed. Lovely indeed, and I think it's absolutely ripe for fanediting. Surely there's footage somewhere of Mark Williams reading a letter or something. Might require some rearranging if a suitable substitute for Anthony couldn't be found to provide the hug, but I bet some kind of reconstruction should be possible.
Brilliant, this is how it should've ended.
Early Christmas presents!!!! Big Grin

Those are both excellent! It was a nice treat to get both at once.

Also, I love Strax. Smile
Less than a week to go.... Smile
