To your spoiler... no. You're not. I have a couple friends who've suggested it.

Hence part of why I'm having so much trouble writing my TARDIS Big Bang because Moffat is too damn good that he's making me THINK.

I have a copy on a Dr. Who anthology, but it only covers the newer series. I have to rely on my swiss cheese-like dvd and vhs collection for the rest of the show.

Even in Britain or at least Wales where have some friends it is used between lovers, parent to child, close friends or anyone near you when drunk. My Welsh friends have never heard it used child to parent, they thought that would be weird as well.

It was just my speculation. I'm not good with these name things. I get pissed off when the lunch lady calls me "hum" in the dorm cafe. I'm something like 5 years older than her. I don't feel that that's applicable to call me. Same here I guess.

I don't know about that. The way that he said it, to me, it sounded like he was just telling Amy what she seemed to want to hear. He was more echoing what she said than actually offering it up as a fact.

I'm really anxious to see where this season takes us. I think Moffat is brilliant, even if he is giving me too many ideas for my fics! *shakes fist* Of course, I'm gonna be in the middle of nowhere when the finale airs so I'll see it late (darn) but I know it will be worth the wait. :D

So what did everyone think of episode 5.6?
I found this episode the same as Toby Whithouse other Dr Who episode to have some good moments but in general lacking. Maybe after four of the last five episodes being plot heavy stories this episodic one seemed a little bit less interesting.

Next weeks episode is written by Simon Nye who mostly writes for comedy series so i think it is safe to assume that this will be one of the comedy episodes for the series.

For the current writers for the series if you had a choice to write for a season of Doctor Who, who would you pick?
Steven Moffat would write the 6 of the episodes
Paul Cornell for a two part episode
Keith Temple for two independent episodes
Mark Gatiss for one episode
Catherine Tregenna for one episode
Chris Chibnall for one episode
This year my fantasy of having Neil Gaiman pen an episode so how about Grant Morrison, Warren Ellis or Ed Brubaker (I know he is American)

Well the first part of the last episode of the season has aired and I think this has the makings of a great episode. This and Vincent are a great way to end the season.
