That was a brilliant Christmas special.
New series. Anachronistic electricity. Nice.

Shane Meadows. Legend. This is England ‘88.
Let’s Kill Hitler - Prequel. Oh, the sadness…
First picture dialogue:
Doctor: Easy! I’ll hook myself up to the computer! She can borrow my memory space!
River: Difficult! It’ll kill you stone dead!
Doctor: Easy to criticize.
River: It’ll burn out both your hearts, and don’t think [that] you’ll regenerate!
Second picture dialogue:
Doctor: This is not a joke. Stop this now. This is gonna kill you! I’d have a chance!
River: You wouldn’t have chance and neither would I!
The Doctor and Professor River Song, Doctor Who, 4.09 “Forest of the Dead”
- This is your explanation as to why River didn’t regenerate in the Library, time lady/time child/half-human-half-time-lord or not. If she was able to regenerate, both of her hearts would have been fried (not to mention her consciousness) and she would have been unable to regenerate.
- This also explains how we knew who River was the moment we met her. She gave us a spoiler, although we didn’t know it yet.
gah i never read that much into that line! You are so right! She did give away that she is more than human there! See this is what I mean when I say Moffat picks every word meticulously! This is why I pick through transcripts of River episodes! I should get back to that…
Yes, Yes, YES! Doctor Who returns…
Or, what I did to round off my half term holidays, which was to rewatch my favourite episode again. Moffat crafted a near-perfect piece of self-contained TV drama in Blink - small, domestic, gripping. I wonder to myself whether the grand scale of this new series really suits him as well as the drumskin-tight focus of Blink, The Empty Child and Silence in the Library…
Something intriguing has come to our attention. Deep within the bowels of the BBC website you’ll find a video of the Doctor in some distress. Its title, Analysis Lessons, is an anagram of Lonely Assassins. And Lonely Assassins was of course a name for … the Weeping Angels. Could they be this year’s real Big Bad?

Check out the trailer for The Rebel Flesh - in particular the return of eyepatch lady at 0:08. This series has me completely gripped.
Doctor Who. I am hooked.
25 Reasons To Watch Doctor Who’s Impossible Astronaut
1. Because we couldn’t ‘spoil’ it if we wanted to
The twists start five minutes in. After 10 minutes, we’ve had more of them than the Doctor’s got years on his clock. And they keep coming until it seems like Steven Moffat’s trying to fry our brains with industrial-strength Moff rays.
We’d love to reveal the plot but just trying to do so makes our heads go wibbly.
I. CAN’T. WAIT. I think I am actually going to explode.
