When "Let's Kill Hitler" first aired, we saw how stiff the Tesselecta seemed to be, especially when imitating that Nazi officer.
    consider the subject!!

    DR!!! vs Nazi!!!

    fluid vs stiffness

    obvious result!!

    just thinking .... "out back getting my good straw! ... more fizz" .... wouldn't that have come from the mini Dr. directing the captain???

    ......


    tick tock goes the clock .... river .... prison ...

    hoping we will get an ep that addresses River's incarceration! i am sure she would make it most amusing!!


    teehee!!

    When the Doctor whispered to River to look into his eye, he was definitely not piloting the Tesselecta as he was in one of its eyes. The rest of the time, however, he was likely controlling it, especially the picnic at Lake Silencio.

    That line about getting the straw was definitely not from the Tesselecta. At that point in "The Impossible Astronaut" the 1103-year-old Doctor (the Tesselecta) had already "died" at Lake Silencio. River, Amy, and Rory had encountered the 909-year-old Doctor at the diner and that's who they were talking to when he mentioned the line about the line with the straw.

    The Doctor does lie, he tells Amy on the train that he has never had an office. The fibber, he did have an office on Gallifrey in "The Invasion of Time"

    I think he forgot actually. He lost his memory at the end of that story.

    She won't do what he asks because she loves him so much. Which is slightly odd. But, because he's prepared to reciprocate the feeling by getting married, or possibly because for her "and obey" is still implicit in the vows, she does follow his request once they're spliced. Which, probably, doesn't still count because it was in an alternate time-line. But, like Amy's murder, did still happen to those who remember it.
    Obviously I forgot the most important bit: she changed her mind because he whispered in her ear words to the effect of, "you're not going to be killing me, it's all a big trick"

    This is where it all gets complicated for me. Two big questions, I suppose. Was he ever 1103 in this series, or was that just Rule #1 to fool them? Bringing us back to the obvious question, what is the Doctor's timeline through this season? Was the version inside the Tesselecta an older or younger version (and from where) than the one with the special straw?

    The Doctor inside the Tesselecta had to have been an older version than the one with the special straw. It's been stated in a press release that "Closing Time" takes place about 200 subjective years after "The God Complex" in the Doctor's timeline so he wasn't lying when he said his age was 1103. By the time he received his stetson from Craig and hatched the plan with the Tesselecta captain, he had been on his Farewell Tour (aka running away from his destiny) for quite some time. It was only when he made that fateful attempt to contact the Brigadier that he decided to finally stop running and said, "It's time."

    I like the end where River popped in to see Mum and Dad and you could tell they've grown closer over.. uh however long they have been doing this.

    I like the episode. I now have to have a marathon of all 11's episodes.
    Why did you do such a thing, you mediocre dunces?

    Question: How did "the time travelling robot operated by tiny people" manage to fake, atleast half of, a regeneration?

    This has actually already been asked on this thread but I'm more than happy to answer it again: The robot was able to turn its legs in to a motorbike. I think a simple thing like a light show would be child's play by comparison to pull off.

    A nice continuity nod:

    31.13 The Big Bang:
    River: Did you dance? Well, you always dance at weddings.

    32.13 The Wedding of River Song:
    Doctor: Look into my eye.

    (the Doctor twirls around, "dancing", then tips his hat)


    Don't think anyone's mentioned that yet.


    EDIT: By the way, the sketch that Amy thought might be Rory--I think it's actually Jeff, isn't it?

    Having re-watched "The Eleventh Hour" recently, I think that sketch is Jeff. The hair is a little weird but the face is definitely him. Very observant.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that. That incident with Jeff (and there wasn't anything inappropriate between them) in "The Eleventh Hour" took place over 2 years before they were married. Since then, Rory has lived as the Last Centurion and she sees him in a completely different way, especially given how she spoke about him to baby Melody in "A Good Man Goes to War."
