I'm here sometimes wrote:
What do you mean? Yes, that was Amy's daughter. I didn't think there was a question about it.. Eyepatch took her and raised her on earth under the Silent's protection. Then used her as a weapon to kill the Doctor.. note that the kid in the astronaut suit was not in control of her actions. She was stuck in there.

I don't know that Amy's daughter was in the astronaut suit. Exactly who was in the suit when the Doctor was killed was never shown.

I think I'm still really confused about this episode. If River is Amy's daughter then shouldn't she have known all about the opening episodes while they were going on? She was shooting at herself during the Doctor's death. Also, does this mean that River can regenerate?


She did know. She was shooting but not hitting anything.. she even said "of course" when she wasn't hitting anything, despite being only like.. 10 feet away. For a supposed good shot.

But she knew time is set, and what happened had to happen the way it happened for whatever reason.

And maybe she can't. We already saw her death and she didn't.. but we only saw the little girl regenerate. So maybe it's not a full on Time Lord thing, maybe there's a limit to the time energy within her? Or maybe something happened when she got older? There's practically a lifetime of her history we don't know.

Right.. because to show it at that point would've given the little girl part away, before we even knew there was a little girl.

But all the clues are there.

I'm still thinking who was in the suit wasn't shown because it'll turn out that somebody else is, or was depending upon your point of view, in the suit.

I doubt it. Everything has basically played out like predicted so far in regards to River.

Also.. everyone complaining about the Doctor killing the Amy ganger - so much for that. She wasn't "alive" afterall.

At the very beginning, we see baby Melody's name and vitals on her crib. Since Amy had free access to the room she should have been used to the 'TARDIS translating' the language there. So why did it take so long for her read the napkin thing?

By the way - my wife "Melody" loves the baby's name and wonders that when they find her, they'll change her name to River.

Liked it a lot, though I wish there was more strategy to taking the base- that part wasn't terribly exciting.

Best next episode title ever.

From Bleeding Cool:

"Here’s a particularly stupid theory. If we take “The Doctor” to be the Doctor’s name – even if it is in the form of a title no doubt meaning something deep and Gallifreyan – perhaps our earthly use of the word “doctor” meaning healer or wise man is direct result of the Doctor’s multiple interventions in our history as a healer and wise man. In other words, we got it from him. This is a very silly idea and I’m consequently rather proud of it. -Steven Moffat, Jan 1995, rec.arts.doctor.who"

The above quote reminds me of a Geoff John's letter page entry many years back where he suggested Superboy was a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. The editor scoffed his suggestion and years later Johns made it reality.

Anyways - wasn't the original definition of "doctor" more teacher than healer?

"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Why did they cut the season in half like this? :x Love the title to the next episode. :lol:

A lot more questions were raised but it was still a great episode.

They need to do a show with the human and lizard women. They were really cool.
