"Captain, you almost make me believe in luck."
Well wikipedia said it, but i am well aware that wikipedia can lie.At the end of this episode, the TARDIS takes off vertically like a rocket. The first time this was seen was in the Second Doctor serial Fury from the Deep (1968).
Dont think there super secret, but think they arn't going to take orders from anyone.
Quick note regarding torchwood, I believe that everyone can know about them, but they don't answer to any government or group. Theres a difference between being known about, and having to report to someone else.
I'd imagine after "The Christmas Invasion" most (sober) people would know about Torchwood. Either that or they know of them, but not specifically what they do.

Didn't take long for the Empress of Racnoss to be announced as an action figure. Coming in March 2007.
The 12-inch model has over 24 points of articulation. The photo below is of a prototype that's said to be more yellow than the final production item.

I didn't do very well in science subjects at school, so bear with me if I am incorrect (and I am sure there will be someone who jumps in to correct me if i am wrong) but surely the effect of cold water hitting super hot material like magma (as in the stuff under the earth's crust) would be a collossal explosion?
And was it phsyically possible to drain the thames like that, especially considering how deep the centre of the earth is from the crust and the amount of water needed to fill the hole etc - and wouldn't that affect the level of the water around the world even a litle bit?
Sorry if I'm being too pedantic, but I'd like a degree of realism in the stuff I watch and dont like to be treated like a complete imbecile by the writers
Overall I didn't mind it but I'm sick of invasion forces using Christmas and Santas and killer christmas trees. And surely the people of london would have twigged that intelligent lifeforms from elsewhere in the galaxy is a real possibility seeing that they have been invaded about 3 times in the space of a year?
I guess it did however explain what happened to one of the torchwoods as mentioned in the first or second ep of the Torchwood series. I suppose it could have been a lot worse.
I just get the feeling that the quality of the writing is going down because they are overstretching themselves with too many spin offs. Or is it just me?
Anyway, all that aside the trailers looked interesting so there is that to look forward to.
The deeper you get the hotter it gets, I don't think that the water would have even come in contact with the magma it would have evaporated long before that.
"Five Rounds Rapid"
The whole molten core thing I just took to mean that there WAS no molten core, just the webship thingy. Or that the webship was between the water and the core, maybe? Very fanwanky, but it's the only explanation I can come up with for why the Earth didn't shatter or experience cataclysmic earthquakes/eruptions. Although that might be an interesting long term effect.
The centre of the Earth is not actually molten. There is a solid centre with a molten layer surrounding that. I'm guessing the centre was supposed to be the warship.
"Five Rounds Rapid"
All I can assume is that the Raknoss children had climbed quit ehigh and the water washed the itsy bitsy spiders back down the plug hole before it evaporated, and they then plunged into magma.
"Five Rounds Rapid"
But then, I tend to be cranky when I first wake up. lol
Phew good to be back, been a few months, anyhow I'd have to give the episode two distinct ratings.
The obviously fun rating, it was cliched to heck, the acting wasen't up to much but the whole point of the episode was that it was just a xmas episode made for a laugh, so for that I'd give it a resonable 7/10.
As far as the whole episode went (keeping the fun and obvious silliness in mind) it has to be a standard 5/10, only satisfactory but not the best, last years xmas special was somehow a little better, this episode had a very lonely feeling about it, about 3 or 4 of the characters including the Doctor were the only ones, last years was a whole bunch of folks and it felt a bit more dramatic thus so.
For all the pollution woes on Earth, will the Human race end up taking those problems into space in the future?

In the scene where the Doctor and Donna were trying to hail a taxi, I know that the sign in the department store window said "Sale Starts Boxing Day" - but, the way the shot was framed, and the position David Tennant was standing, it looked more like "Tarts Boxing".
Now that sounds far more entertaining.
Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.
Well this just screened in Australia.
I noticed the reference to Mr Saxon... that I completely missed the first time around.
Ooh another thing, having now watched eps 11/12 *spoilers*Spoiler:
Speaking of Torchwood, how many hubs are there?
I loved it!!!
Ok, it was over the top, and yes Donna was loud, but that is what made it great.
Donna: I like her, and I want to see more of her. (Yes, I know the spoilers). I wouldn't take being beamed out of my wedding well either. She had a reason to yell, and her few soft moments were powerful, such as making the Doctor stop observing the death of the Spider lady and her children. I also like that she isn't a 20 year old with a crush. I liked the Doctor and Rose, even as a couple, but I am glad to see someone that doesn't go weak at the knees for the Doctor on cue.
The Doctor: As always, DT is wonderful. I also liked the tie-in with Rose. This episode picked up right after the Doctor's tears on the Tardis; of course he is still missing her.
The Humor: The episode was hilarious. I was cracking up at several points, and it was a good time all around. The show cannot be all drama all of the time, so this was a great way to start a season (that if the spoilers are true) will likely be fantastic.
The Plastic Aliens: Enough already. I thought they were cheesy and stupid in Rose. I realize these were a slightly different kind, but dummies as villains don't do it for me. I tolerated them in the Christmas Invasion, but they came back. No more. They look dumb and are not scary. Can we move on?
The Spider Lady's voice: I'm not yet sure if it was her lines or her voice but one of them kept destroying the moment for me. Her "the little man is funny" made me cringe. Her makeup was fine (although I hate spiders), but she bothered me. It looks like she won't be back. Good.
Overall . . . 9/10. A great episode that I will rewatch tonight. It's worth losing the sleep.

The "My children!" scene went on too long and the screamed phrase was repeated a little too often for my tastes, but I did like the ep and I do like Donna. Hopefully she'll have smartened up a bit when next we see her.
What's her accent supposed to be? Other than English, thank you. I didn't notice it first time around but it distracted me once or twice tonight.
