Doctor Who: The Rebel Flesh

I read the synopsis. It was a frigging cop-out, although that whole thing with the name was actually quite clever. But the story proper looks intriguing, and I still intend to watch it.

BTW, what sort of story would the next one be? They've given the title Let's Kill Hitler. Rather too flippant for a story title, but maybe it's going to be about the Hitler Time Travel Exeption Act in fiction.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Finally caught up with the latest 3 Dr Who episodes today. Rebel Flesh was Ok, the next one was better, and the mid season finale was awesome!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I loved this episode!!!! I thought the last few were a bit disappointing.... but was hoping they would ferment into something like this. AND IT DID!

WHY was Rory in the centurions uniform? I want to go back now to when River Song first appeared in the library and watch them all again. :D (She did first appear in the library right?)

And and and ... What about "Jenny" the "Doctor's Daughter"????

Love the Doctor getting so evil.... seems he had no reason to get SO attached to a companion before huh? But thats babies for you. He will get so much more evil.... and I can see them gearing up for a change of Doctor... pointers towards that... but who knows when.

Watched this episode with the girls... and spent ages pulling it apart and putting it back together again :D

YAY!!!!!!!!!! :D

BAD BAD BAD Dr Who producers for making us wait. :evil: But at least we Aussies can talk about it for less than ONE freaking night now.

Yes. Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead. Interestingly, the latter was originally meant to be titled River's Run, I heard.

No relation. They're allowed to have multiple Jennys in the series. :P And this one would have made herself known to the Doctor if she was really the daughter of the Doctor. Naw, I think this Jenny is just the maid/lover of a female Silurian. :)

Well, Matt Smith's definitely confirmed for the next year. So he won't be regenerating for a while yet. But no word on Karen Gillan or Arthur Darvill, so maybe Amy and Rory will be leaving at the end of the series.

And I've been looking at the trailers. You can spot some of the bits from the episodes yet to come. For example, watch this trailer, and look for the Nazis and the doll-faced creatures. The former will probably be in the episode that premieres the rest of the series.

And at about 28 seconds into this video is something strange, not to mention Amy and Rory trapped in a plummeting lift.

More doll faces, creepy toys, a horned creature with a fugly face and the Doctor made up like a clown in this trailer.

You missed the last two verses.

Okay, not Rebel Flesh related, but being lazy,

Doctor Who art shows how much better Gaiman's ep could have been
This is interesting...

I agree with one of the posters on that page that the toning down of the design actually worked better as it was less obvious originally that they were constructs.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

That horned monster looks like he is in the corridor of a cruise liner (turn of the century) Did I miss an episode???????

Spidey I was a bit disappointed that the "put together people" didn't have more of that look on thier faces.... perhaps not like nephews conception... but better than was in the episode.

Episode 12: Unknown, by Gareth Roberts

Episode 13: Unknown, by Steven Moffat

In terms of the title, or the Doctor going mad with power? Actually, the classic series story The Face of Evil, which introduced Leela, actually was originally called The Day That God Went Mad.

It has one of the craziest cliffhangers at the end of episode 3, when the Doctor gets shouted down by the multiple personalities of mad computer Xoanon.

I'm not the only one that loves the idea of a Madam Vestra spin-off. :D
