Brief comment on "The Big Bang":

Saw the Van Gogh episode last night. Not as eventful as many other episodes in the series I think.

When I read the synopsis I was expecting to be bored but some strong & touching performances by the guest artists had me in tears during the final scenes.

Anyway, what's the story with last night? Are we up to the series finale already? And I see the new alternative universe cybermen already have space ships & time travel - that was quick!

Agreed. I don't usually go for time paradox stories but Steven Moffat is certainly a fine storyteller.

To be honest, I was baffled by much of what was going on. I watch Doctor Who quite intently, but there were so many things that were poorly explained or not explained at all; when I went to Gallifrey Base (a Doctor Who forum) to try to find answers, I found that there were few answers conclusively in the story itself; half of the explanations were just fans taking wild guesses and rationalising all the various bits and bobs with timey-wimey gobbledigook. I felt like I should have enjoyed it more, but I didn't. It was probably slightly above average for a typical episode; disappointing for a finale.

According to TV Tonight Twitter, this year's Doctor Who Christmas Special will air boxing day here this year, a few hours after the UK screening.

Just a quick reminder from the tvtonight story and since confirmed with other sources

http://www.tvtonight...as-special.html

"For the first time the ABC will fast-track the annual Doctor Who Christmas Special.

It will air on Boxing Day in Australia, just hours after it screens in the UK."

Hmmm, just noticed the poll at the top. Would've been a good idea to include the actor behind each Doctor in brackets beside their respective option. Not everyone can count their Doctors...

Truly devoted fans can. ;) Doing a new poll now: this one's out-of-date anyway, and it has a sacrilegious grammatical error, repeated ten times...

(For future reference: the Tenth Doctor led the poll comfortably.)

I grew to like Eccleston and one season wasn't enough.

Although I do like the current one, he has a certain savoir-faire.

I found it confusing. Like I knew the plot was turning a bitter old man into someone appreciative as he is the only person controlling the device that could save the lives of 4000+ people, but the constant jumping back and forth between the present and past was getting too much. Generally Steven Moffatt stories make all that confusing nonsense make perfect sense at the end, but this one was an exception.
