    On the other hand, she recognised the David Tennant version as being 'her' Doctor. The writers were probably not thinking too much about regeneration at this time but it does open up some interesting possibilities.

    I loved Donna's line: "Wait no, justó Hang on. This isn't the real me. This isn't my body. But I've been dieting!"

    If she only had known that before

    yes, that's when Ms Evangelista (the lady in black) talks to her at the children's playground, and Donna realizes that her life there and here children aren't real, that she's only a projection, and she realizes that therefore she wouldn't have had to diet at all love that that was the first thought she had

    More don't make this version of the Doctor angry.... 10 had some serious arrogance. Mind you I like a Doctor that has a bit of that.

    To be honest its kinda what I miss about the Doctor, I don't see it as much in Smith. Sure you remember David's first proper episode "New Earth" ?

    "You want to take this to a higher authority, well there is none. It stops with me !"

    Gave me the chills that did !

    What a show !

    This has to be one of my all time fave eps!!! it jarred me to the core.

    I could have strangled Moffat for the scene when Lee is 'bout to be beamed off and he sees Donna and then the stutter ... i was ... well .... angst!!! OH MY!!!

    love the scene where Donna and the Dr. are discussing if they are alright .... is alright really doctor language for not alright ... to paraphrase!! it was brilliant ... and then he takes her hand.

    *sigh* i miss tennant!!

    his face when he knows he can save River!!!

    and Alex ... she is a amazing as River!! i want much more of her.


    teehee!!


    moffat = brilliant love to hate

    I just finished watching Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead for the first time in a long while. Watching this again, especially after having seen everything that happens in series 5 & 6, has made me appreciate her character in new ways.

    When I first watched this episode, it was more along the POV of the Tenth Doctor, who didn't know her yet--and neither did the audience.

    But now, having seen River and her backstory brought to the foreground in future seasons, her heartbreak at the Doctor not recognizing her in this two-parter really comes off as genuine to me. I think Alex Kingston did a fantastic job.

    And that last sequence, when the Doctor finds out how to save her, everything was just brilliant: The acting, the shots, and especially the music. Absolutely brilliant.

    As for his name he said "only one time I could (tell anyone)". There are two things that people can only do once in their life, be born, and die (physical condition before regeneration not counted). Since she never seen him any younger; and I doubt he would write his name on a tomb for the universe to see; she must have been with him at the end of his last regeneration.

    In conclusion his name is Earl.


    Why would it matter? He is dead why would it matter if his name is on a tomb?

    And I personally think he told her just before heading for the singing towers as that was in my imagination a one way mission and he possibly died there alone..

    My favorite line of this episode. The 10th Doctor is really growing on me, I didn't like him at first, as I felt he was too silly. The arrogance I can live with. Very good double parter, and I can't wait to see more of River Song...

    It has been a long time since I have seen this and wow, Alex Kingston did a great Job for her first appearence. After knowing the whole story I also agree, the Heartbreak that she showed at realizing this is the last time she will ever see him was genuine. I kept thinking of that Time with Rory when she cried about the thought that this Day will come.I would have wished a better end for her.
