    "you look human"
    "no, you look timelord".

    I can't say the episode was as great as the first, but I enjoyed it. Liking Matt more and more, especially when he was fixing his bowtie and talking about how undignified "escaping" would be.

    Looks like we can expect the cracks to be a running theme during the season until the finale. I just hope we don't see one at the end of every episode. Also, bit annoying Scotland got their own ship but Northern Ireland didn't. Also, Amy Pond slimmed up, sexy.

    Oh this just gets better and better...

    I'm still assimilating it, but that was fantastic. Both Matt Smith and Karen Gillan are superb actors, and Matt's Doctor is already my favourite. It's like a distillation of all the best aspects of the prior ten, with something else on top.

    Some great lines and scenes, especially the Doctor after he finds out what Amy did and what the UK did.

    "I'm going to stay out of trouble...badly."
    And now it's time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven's hour is over now... the clock is striking Twelve's.

    Ok that was a pretty damn good episode. Not perfect, but at the same time I can't say I saw anything particularly wrong with it at all. I'm loving Both the Doctor and Amy more and more all the time. Esspecially how The Doctor acts like such an old man now in his body language, even though he has the energy of a 26 year old. Exactly what I hoped for when I heard about Matt Smith being the Doctor.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    Scots haven't been killing each other for it in acts of terrorism. Killing each other > campaigns. It's just a nice little joke to have though, saying to the Scottish character that the Scots wanted their own ship although it makes you wonder having seen the episode, if the UK had to use a Space Whale, what did the Scots use?

    Can't believe I forgot this, but did anyone else recognise The Demon Headmaster? I noticed him right away and thought it was about time he was used in Doctor Who.

    I totally loved this episode. Especially the end. The hugging between Amy and the Doctor is cute ^_^
    Poor Tennant has to compete with Matt for a place as the second favourite doctor of mine. Cuz Eccleston will always be my first favourite.

    That was a super episode. Disturbing though - the poor whale & the Doctor's terrible dilemma. I felt quite emotional at one point. This episode certainly makes a contrast with The Eleventh Hour and really illustrates the "dark glittering fairy tales" we were promised. I liked the way at Amy recognised the same qualities in the Doctor and the whale.

    Favourite quote was when the Doctor & Amy are on the whale's tongue, she asks where they are, he sniffs and says "Lancashire."

    I liked the mentions to the solar flares of the late 29th century which devastated Earth. For those of you not in the know...we see what happened to the "best of the best" of the human race and what became of Earth some hundreds of years after the solar flares in the 1975 stories The Ark in Space and The Sontaran Experiment. I recommend checking them out.

    what happened to all the other countries seems a bit unlikely everyone would be able to build ships except the uk

    Heart of the starship is Lancashire? I can deal with that.

    Really? I thought it was a reference to The End of the World in season 27, but then they didn't mention anything about the expansion of the sun there.

    Well no. They didn't mention the sun expanding. Only Solar Flares. It was only the 29th Century where as The End of the World was billions of years in the future.

    Another good episode
    Any doubts about Matt Smith are definately gone now
    Looks like it will be a strong season

    Next weeks episode looks good
    Spoiler:
    Daleks, Winston Churchill and space battles


    One question though, since when have people been able to call the Tardis? Should I put that in spoilers?

    I adored how he answered Churchill's response with 'Hi dear! What's up?'

    Another top quality episode from the moff......brilliant brilliant brilliant....david who?
    If this series continues in the rich form of vein it's in then matt smith could well go on to become my favourite doctor after tom baker!!!!!!!
    Let's just pray and hope that amy doesn't fall for the doctor and they just have mutal admiration for each other so we don't get another rose/martha....cause that would be the only thing that could spoil it for me.

    1. Is this the best the 29th century can do techwise?

    2. Liz 10 - certainly not your average monarch.

    3. Starwhale - definately like the idea.

    4. Smith-Doctor definatey seems interesting - hope he doesn't do anything too stupid in the next ep.
