    Wow
    Very intersting episode
    Lots more input about the Cracks in time
    Seems to all revolve around Amy but we dont know why and hopefully we will find out soon
    Some interesting information about River Song too, like her killing someone and her knowing about Pandorica
    Who did she kill? (My initial thought was the Doctor, but with shows like this, you never know) and what does she know about Pandorica
    Shame some of the angels didnt survive, but maybe some did?? Hopefully Angel Bob survived. As I said, you never know with this show

    Overall another good episode and hopefully this season carrys on this way

    On the plus side that most likely wasn't all of the Angels as a race unlike what happens with the cybermen and Daleks most times we see them.

    This was much better than part 1, it flowed so perfectly and I enjoyed how as the story went on the angels seemed insignificant compared to the bigger problem of the crack. I also really loved the messing with gravity throughout the episode. Also "you're a Time Traveller, you see things differently now" sent a massive shivver down my spine

    What was up with that ending? I loved the fact that the Doctor was so very against the idea of a relationship with a human (take that Rose-shippers ) but that still seemed quite out of character for Amy to me and I'm trying to work out why, I mean it's been obvious she fancied him since the begining.

    Fantastic episode. Another excellent performance from Matt Smith once again, glad to see that we actually got more explanation on River's past (personally, I think she went to prison for "killing" the Doctor, perhaps when he goes from 11th to 12th).

    Even though Amy didn't do much, I thought she did really well when all she had to do was keep her eyes closed for the biggest chunk of the episode.

    The thing I liked most was that we finally got to see learn more about the crack, what they are, and I think it's pretty cool how it was used to explain why no one remembered the CyberKing over 19th century London as well as everything else Amy doesn't know about.

    Another great episode.

    Did anyone else notice the date the Doctor came up with for whatever causes the crack is the same as the date the last episode of the series should be on?

    That was much better than the first, nicely creepy. I seriously doubt this is the last we'll see of the Angels. Or the time crack.

    I'm begining to lean towards River being the Rani after tonights episode.

    I don't think it was out of character for her at all. I mean she is a Kissogram, or at least was and as you said she obviously fancied the Doctor. I think she's definately the promiscuous and kinda raunchy type........It's just that she's been a tad bit over whelmed by all the adventuring recently.

    I'm just glad that the 11th Doctor doesn't act like the 10th did with the kiss. The 10th is always surprised but he kinda always just goes with it in a kind of "Yep, still got it...." kinda way. The 11th on the other hand kinda acted as though he was going "Yuk! Human!"

    Hmm. Good episode, but it had a few problems in my eyes. I loved the idea that time can be unwritten, that the duck pond from The Eleventh Hour was actually important and that anybody falling into the crack ceased to ever have existed (very similar to a side effect of the inertia suppression machinery in Al Reynold's Revelation Space books...very creepy idea too), but I thought actually seeing the angels move undid a lot of their fear factor.

    Also, the moment I heard that River Song killed a man, I thought "that'll be the Doctor then". Maybe not, but if time can be rewritten and unwritten, it's entirely possible River kills him and his death gets unwritten.

    I didn't like the idea that Amy's the key to everything...sounds far too much like Donna being the most important woman in the entire universe from a conceptual standpoint. Also, I wasn't keen on Amy jumping the Doctor...I'm hoping this isn't going to be standard.

    I think I have to watch that episode again (I can't always tell what Matt Smith is saying, he just speaks so fast!) to really decide how much I liked it.

    Probably around 1559 or a few decades after, if the End of Time and Beast Below are to be believed.

    Reefgirl, definitely agreed.

    I'm not so sure....... I mean I mentioned her being the Rani as a possibility but I think it's only a minor chance. Whoever and whatever River is though, I think she will prove to be dangerous. But I'm now hoping that she's going to be a Mayborn like character. Not a good guy but not a bad one either. An adversary in some cases but in others just someone who gets in over her head and in so doing grows closer and closer to the Doctor in a sort of mutual respect and affection. Just not love like some people seem to think.

    I think Eleventh would have acted like Tenth if it had been anyone other than Amy. I believe the Doctor still sees her as little Amelia so for him, he couldn't and wouldn't let himself do anything because in his eyes, she's that child who made him custard and fish fingers.

    I didn't understand that then and I still don't now. I don't suppose someone could explain it could they?

    Well it would seem that the ducks were erased from history. There was a duck pond, but no one had a clue why there was no ducks using it. It may not be a huge climatic event, but it did show that there was more going on at Leadworth than just a crack in Amy's wall letting Zero escape.

    Excellent and incredibly satisfying conclusion to this 2-part story! It was dark, tense, eerie, and creepy! Alex Kingston as River Song was great and Matt Smith and Karen Gillan are amazing to watch as the Doctor and Amy! They continue to impress!

    I loved this! Enjoyable, edge-of-your-seat viewing from start to finish!

    As always I look forward to next Saturday's story!

    "What if the gravity fails?"
    "I've thought about that."
    "And?"
    "And we'll all plunge to our deaths. See, I've thought about it."

    Genius. Moffat's past writing comedy serves him well. Once again, the entire episode is tremendously quotable.
    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.
