I said in the PM that it was Ian McKellen doing the voice of the snow. Instead of Charles Xavier, it's Magneto. :lol:

:oops: Indeed you did. :oops:

I must say I was intrigued by the London Underground map of the 60s as I remember watching the Yeti episodes when I was a kid. Thanks again Q - that has made a whole lot more sense now. :D

There is only one problem I have with the episode. The Snowmen meant to be about the origins of the Great Intelligence. And yet, in The Abominable Snowmen, the Great Intelligence has been around for at least three centuries (keeping the monk Padmasambhava alive since the 1600s).

Of course, my theory is that there were two such 'snowfalls' of the 'sentient snow' that became the Intelligence, one in the 1600s and the other in the 1800s. The first one kept Padmasambhava alive, and the second, separate from the first, began to reflect Simeon. Because Padmasambhava was a good man, the Intelligence was relatively benign until the events of The Snowmen, and Simeon's attitude, personality, and values came to define the Intelligence. Once expelled after the events of The Snowmen, the Intelligence latches onto its fragment within Padmasambhava, and begins taking him over in earnest, leading to the events of The Abominable Snowmen.

If I didn't think "Dalek" that could almost be an icon for a shower. :lol:

Oh, of course it is.

My first thought was Dalek!

At least it's more creative than the standard defacing painting, if you get my meaning.

Now, apparently Neil Gaiman was asked to make Cybermen scary again for Nightmare in Silver. Well, judging by this preview clip released by the BBC, he's given Cybermen one very scary ability already. You know how traditionally Cybermen move slowly? Well...

Still not as scary as the silence, now they are scary, because for all we know they could really exist!

Don't think it was as good as last weeks but was still good, the overloading the cyber network was a bit obvious.
