    Of course there has to be a point where the 908 year old Doctor reappears to stop it all becoming a confusing time looping paradox..
    Its already beyond that point for some people i know

    Seriously though, i think its been established over the last 1.5 seasons that Moffat is clever and devious in ways that we cant pick up on 100% until its revealed, so i for one will be wasting a little less brain power on trying to out think the Einstein of the continuity writing of Doctor Who and a little more on willing time to speed up for Episode 8

    N.C

    Did the Doctor turn his sonic on 'rescued Amy' at all?

    Given he has been fooled twice, what's to stop him being fooled three times and 'real Amy' was taken off the asteroid at the same time as 'real Melody' leaving a ganger Amy behind?

    Doesn't the upcoming scene with Amy and Rory on a motorbike have them being a bit shocked when a clone Amy comes up alongside them?

    No.

    Nothing's to stop him being fooled again. We'll have to wait and see.

    Not trolling

    just pointing out that the biggest mystery he's ever had was "called" by the first episode of Matt Smith's first episode.

    And I'd reserve calling him a "genius of continuity" until we see how the continuity actually plays out.

    I seem to remember a lot of people dismissed the Jacket wearing Doctor in the Angel's episode last season as continuity error, or didn't even notice it at all....

    Feel embarrassed that I just realised that the Headless Monks were introduced in The Time of Angels, with the museum from the opening as 'their final resting place.'

    Just speculation, but could be that we'll see how and why that location became their final resting place.

    Hey I have an idea let's write a video game and put it online, add DLC and patches when needed and just put it out there. Who needs testing right? :/

    That won't be an easy thing to accomplish.

    Spoiler:
    If the prequel to Asylum of the Daleks is any indication, it seems the Headless Monks are powerful telepaths. It'll be difficult to scrag them.

    They never showed the prequel in Australia, in face we never get them.

    Any youtube of it?

    Also how can they be telepaths with no heads? I view them as little more then drones for the computer thing that controls them.

    The prequel can be seen here.

    Spoiler:
    As for being telepathic/psychic without a head, to me, the rest of their bodies could be imbued with psychic energy. There's never been any definitive exploration of how the monks do what they do though so we're left with supposition.

    They can fire pulses of energy with their hands and even direct that energy into their swords. That implies telekinetic powers as well. In the prequel, the monk is definitely a strong telepath if he can psychically contact the Doctor the way he does.

    My personal view of the Monks is that they're animated drones driven by the papal mainframe.

    So in this timeline the Monks are not the Dr's enemy?

    Cool episode. Loved getting confirmation on River Song's identity.
