See you in 16 years? :( Really though, I'm glad the archives remain. After watching classic Who, this is the first site I visit to check up on reviews :) Great team, great work, so long and thanks for all the fish.

I think I'd care more it it were my cash. As it stands, it's just a piece of telly to be angry at. I wonder if they went home and researched it.

I had the same thought and I went for McCoy. Even with "Played" being there, the fact that McCoy's likeness and appearance was still linked with the role in novels, books, comics etc, surely means he was playing the Doctor just as much as Tennant. Not to mention being associated with the role with conventions etc. Surely, it'd be in this order... McCoy, McGann, Tennant, Eccleston

Regarding Ian... he can come back. This is DW. Just have it set in the far future. Or, alternatively, go literally by Sarah Jane - not showing signs of is a just rumour. Or, as I do, just view it as a metaphor for timeless characters.

When the Doctor unravels, he speaks to Amy aged 7 whilst she sleeps. He says that when she wakes up, she'll have a mum and a dad. So when Amy wakes up on the morning of her wedding, she's had her parents for years. So I suspect we're meant to take in the idea that she's grown closer to them and everything within the unseen years before the Doctor comes back. However, the way it was presented on screen does make it look like she took them for granted.

I'm guessing the Doctor is too scared to investigate. Or maybe he wants to casually learn more and more by going on different adventures. This Doctor has been shown to concentrate the best when he's distracted... maybe that's key. Maybe he's going on wonderful adventures to have fun and concentrate on the crack in the time being. Also throw in his promise to little Amy... he said it'd be fun. Therefore he's not exploring this crack because it's dangerous and he wants to get Amy away from it.

>Finally, going back to The End of Time - and this would tie in with Moffat sending a script to RTD< And remember when everyone speculated about the second hidden-behind-the-hands Time Lord and how he had Matt-like hair? There was the nod to "Geronimo" in "Planet of the Dead", a huge timey-wimey space crash in "Waters" and then the "weeping" Time Lords were likened to the "weeping angels of old". Maybe Moffat and RTD were talking more than we thought/than they let on, and he asked RTD to drop in subtle clues and nods. (Let's not forget how Moffat has picked up on the CyberKing too!) So maybe, somehow, for some reason, the Eleventh Doctor was the other Time Lord along with "the woman in white"? I mean, she was revealed, but the other wasn't.

>What other moments in previous episodes are fans postulating might be visits from a future Doctor?< The shadowy figure which runs through young Amy's kitchen before the close-up of the clock and the change to years later. We assumed this was just Prisoner Zero escaping again but it could've been the Doctor.

My only main gripe is the post text - some of the posts and the texts are really squashed together.
