    The New Series looks interesting with the return of the Weeping Angels, and yet again this doesnt surprise me.... Daleks... new daleks too from the look of it.

    A few things noticed about Tennant's Last episode.

    1. He cocked that pistol 4 times with taking his thumb off the hammer at the back

    2. He had the trigger pulled THE WHOLE TIME!!! (seriously, check the close up shots of the gun)

    3. WHo the fuck designed that radiation system? Ok, we've got this radiation proof box we can use to contain radiation in the event of an overload but otherwise seems to serve no purpose BUT we're going to force 1 person to be in it at all times for NO APPARENT REASON!!!!

    Otherwise a great episode and I liked the end of the Time Lords, hopefully they will attempt to devise another way out of the time lock later on for the Doctor to thwart again or maybe even escape and be generally evil.

    It was a good episode until the part he left the booth then it overstayed its welcome. It was really drawn out and that bit in the alien bar made me vomit it was so fucking bad.

    One of many reasons to why RTD going is no great loss, all of his episodes had more plot holes then a series of Red Dwarf. Also those had great big gaps in them new the doors...wtf?

    Now the hack RTD is not in charge I'm hoping for a better run of episodes, I loved the first series but the others had some really awful episodes and the companions were getting old fast. Catherine Tate...jesus fucking christ, she was worse than Bonnie Langford. Even Adric had some redeeming qualities.

    Stephen Moffat is in charge now and he has done my favourite modern Who episodes (Empty Child, The Doctor Dances, The Girl In The Fireplace &Blink) as well as the very good Jekyll series with James Nesbitt .

    The new episodes are said to be more darker but still fun like the first series which I would welcome if true. Read some interviews and read that its a all new clean start, no reoccuring companions from that run and that its sort of a reboot with a few of "classic" enemies being remodelled and such. When the series first came back I was against Daleks being remodelled and while I doubt they will be dramatically remodelled this time I'd still welcome it just to shake some things up a bit. Cybermen I don't mind either seeing altered but for god sake the Mondas ones and not the alt universe ones of late.

    There were rumours that the next series would be more Earthbound, after seeing the TARDIS pretty much get borked at the end and hearing that the BBC has to spend less on episodes I can see this being true, which would be good, the team could focus more on story than spend time thinking up planets, sets and so on. Jon Pertwees Doctor was Earthbound and thats one of my favourite series so it wont hurt.

    After the brief glimpse of the new Doctor it seems that the rumours of him being more of a "erratic & insane" Doctor could be true and I actually liked his time on the screen, though someone should take off that Frankenstein's Monster mask that he is currently wearing.

    So for once I'm looking forward to a new series, first time since the second series, while 2-4 series weren't bad, they just had too many episodes that were either meh or horrible.

    I enjoyed this episode; as soon as Wilf entered the radiation chamber I knew the problem would be getting him out again. Idiot.

    It might've been designed like that so that there was always someone to maintain it; maybe there was an override somewhere for normal usage. In part one, I'm trying to think whether we saw two people come out at the same time.

    The editing with the gun was awful though; I noticed that too.

    New pictures show the TARDIS with the St. John's Ambulance logo on again; don't know if I'd like it being back or not. The trailer looks good for Series 5, and because a logo was announced in October, there's a good chance for a new intro. The current one kinda gets old after being more or less the same after 4-5 years.

    Its being redone too, hopefully it wont sound like the news theme this time.

    Maybe they should go more old school this time, make it more errie.

    I noticed that when he went into the chamber, there was no-one in before him. How did that person get out? [​IMG]

    Actually I think the TARDIS being borked was more of an excuse to give it a makeover than anything else. They've re-done its exterior (judging by a few shots I've seen) which probably means that the interior's getting a revamp as well. The current Tardis interior has been there for quite a while.

    The tech interior did look good [​IMG] albeit tamer by today's standards.

    I also remember Rassilon referring to the two that were against his plan as weeping angels. Significant? I think so.

    Steven Moffat has already said he wants to make changes like the logo and also the inside of the Tardis, the logo is on the BBC webste already

    [​IMG]

    and they are keeping tight lipped about the new Tardis interior....

    Matt smith is going to look like a dweeb with a bow tie on though..... like Indiana Jones when he is at the school

    Decent episode. I would have edited the two episodes into a 90 minute episode (with a 3 minute interlude smack dab in the middle).

    Not bothering with the new series. No interest. I wonder if there is any truth to Tennant being considered for Bilbo.
