Just had an idea. I don't know if anyone here has mentioned this yet..

But what if the "Impossible Astronaut" that killed the Doctor wasn't River? What if it was the Tesselector? It didn't kill the Doctor in 1938, because they only punish criminals at the end of their timestreams.. that's the same reason they didn't kill Hitler - they had arrived too early. This would also answer why River didn't remember doing the deed - or at least, acted like she didn't remember.

There are some important episodes last season but even more importantly this season was divided into two parts and the first half is pretty essential.

Interesting theory, but here's my understanding of things:

in River's personal timeline, in the one we see in LKH when she's just de-Mels'd/en-River'd, she hasn't killed the Doctor yet.

It's possible that she killed the Doctor later on, but remember that the astronaut suit was made for a child, and River has seemingly gotten over her programming. Then again, she was still in prison at one point for killing a "great man"

I think what makes me think robot is that the astronaut came out of the water, and disappeared back into it. If it was a time travelling robot full of mini people, it could do that.

I mostly just think the Teselecta is really cool and want to see it again.

It was basically the Numbskulls from the Beano.

Maybe a robot of young Amelia?

Which was always my favourite part of the Beano.

We're talking about a shape-shifting, time-travelling robot run by tiny people. I would definitely hang on to that if I was the Doctor.

All I could think of with the Tesselector was Kamelion.

I was disappointed in the "Best of the Companions" episode. Not what I wanted. I would've loved to have touched on classic Who. It should've been called "Best Bits of the Current Companions."

CS, I'm surprised you haven't mentioned the odd thing about the Mels/River regeneration.

It gave us visual proof that someone of a time lordian physiology can regenerate into different races. :-D

Laying the ground work for Paterson Joseph, baby! :groucho:
