Tired of Smith's spasmodic antics, please regenerate soon.


I think there are two more seasons of Smith and then you may get what you want.

It just popped up as she walked through the Tardis in the one scene. Something there made me think of that. Since so much of late has been nostalgia...

I liked seeing that they changed the interior again since Amy and Rory ran through it. Hated those corridors then. Still, I miss the classic look of the Baker/Post Baker period. Also, now I'm wondering if they've changed things back with the Eye of Harmony. Before it was, and apparently now, that it is the Tardis' power source. Though during the Eccleston/Tennant era they had it fueling on the time rift. I prefer what we got in this episode.


It occurred to me a couple of episodes ago, when he took Clara to the market and said he'd last been there with his granddaughter.

Yeah, there's been a lot of Susan drops between that and this past episode. I do suspect that she could turn out to be either Susan, or his recent daughter or perhaps even Susan's grandmother? It wouldn't be an unusual twist for Dr Who of late and what with the 50th anniversary and the return of David Tennant...

As a fan since childhood in the 70s starting with Jon Pertwee, this nostalgia is terrific for me. :-D

I don't know about being his daughter. True they both regenerate, for lack of a better word, in to the same body, but Jenny knew who she was (or, at least it seemed she did). I don't know anything about Susan's grandmother.

We don't know anything about Susan's grandmother or that much about Susan really.
Was she really a Time Lord or an adopted child or perhaps a half Time Lord/ half human? I've always wondered and more so since the concept of the Time War. Was she too recalled for it? What was her fate? This could be a "gift" to older fans and link the past that much more with the present.

Hmmm... I wonder if River Song had any children with the Doctor... plus if Susan was biologically related to the Doctor as stated.. who was her grandmother and perhaps we should ask also, what was she? Time Lord? Human?

Tons of potential there with these theories. Or none if they do something else.

When a sci fi show does an episode concerning time and by the end of it everything kinda resets...... God thats fucking annoying and cliche.

I'm honestly in love with her. All I have to do is murder the actor who plays Robb Stark who has somehow tricked her into being his girlfriend (presumably with drugs) and then let destiny (and drugs) bring us together.

No. Mine. I must hear her live on a daily basis, saying - "Doctor Who?" and "Clever boy." . Plus her calling other women "Cow".

Joking aside, she is probably the most cute and stunning companion the Doctor has had yet.

"The Crimson Horror" ep last night was okay. Although the rocket blasting off in 19th century Yorkshire was a bit much :lol:
I like that Clara's kids (she nannies for) showed her the pic of her from Victorian London. Duh duh duuuuuh ! :P

Was the Sontaran's view on Northerners correct? So when meeting Punchy... scissor grenades? :P

I liked that too, it should move thing along given that final photo... Duh duh duuuuuh ! Indeed!

Ice Warriors, Sontarans, Silurians and Cybermen... feeling very nostalgic.

I keep thinking... the Time Lords are returning.
