    Nooo Rory!!!
    Oh my Goodness, how could they kill him??
    I was starting to like him lol
    I reckon he will be back though, because they made it significant that he put the ring in the Tardis
    The cracks made another appearance, wonder how the piece of the Tardis ties in

    Fantastic episode. I don't understand how..

    she could forget Rory, but remember the Clerics/Monks/Priest/Soldiers.


    Me thinks someone forgot about it when writing the episode.

    Well...that was great. Miles better than the first part. I was semi-right about FutureAmy and FutureRory being significant, though that wasn't exactly hard to work out.

    But Rory though...he was even better in this ep, and now he's never existed?! Very sad watching the whole scene and Amy trying to remember him.

    The Doctor said it was because

    Rory was part of Amy's personal history, presumably prior to her becoming a time traveller.

    So...the cracks are caused by the TARDIS going ka-blooey? What causes everyone's favourite police box to explode? Is the Silurian military caste entirely female, while the scientific and apparently political castes seem to be male oriented? Why didn't the Doctor cease to exist when he stuck his hand in the crack? Will we see Rory again? Why can't I stop asking questions?

    10/10 Very satisfying conclusion to this 2-part story! Most enjoyable! Loved it!

    Was shocked at the death and erasure of Rory! I wasn't expecting that at all! And the TARDIS is going to be destroyed?! What could possibly destroy the TARDIS?! Wow oh wow!

    Double cliffhanger!

    Tardis go kalbloowie! Or it will, scary stuff!

    And Rory!! Noooooooo! Poor poor Rory! And will Amy remember him? I hope she does because he was brilliant as a companion. A wonderful piece of acting by KG at Amy's despair there.

    Next week looks interstign too
    If found, is probably lost on the way to Azaroth or the Pegasus Galaxy

    And will Amy remember him?
    She had forgotton him the moment she hit the ground.

    Why didn't the Doctor cease to exist when he stuck his hand in the crack?
    Things can come through the cracks without being erased, Prisoner Zero for example.

    Holy Shift...

    Damn, first we kill Rory then erase him. Amy's "What were we talking about?" was... ouch. I didn't love the guy much, but damned it all if he wasn't a nice grounding for Amy. Killing him in Amy's Choice showed she was very despondent without him, and now erasing him to restore some sort of status quo... ouchies times a miliion.

    That was a fantastic conclusion, on both counts. The Silurian stuff was well handled, though I could've done without the narrations and some of the awkward moments. But then the crack's return... I will note that it seemed to be shoehorned in out of nowhere, but the nature of the cracks suggest that is what they do. They appear to be following the Doctor, and the TARDIS is probably responsible. Again, Holy Shift.

    The ride to the finale looks to be a big one! (At least Nasreen and Tony Mack got a happy ending, of sorts. First ambassadors a thousand years from now. Good on them.)

    For some reason, I dont think its the last we have seen of Rory
    I think somehow the engagement ring will play a part in the future because they seemed to put some emphasis on it
    But it was definately an ouch moment when she was trying to remember Rory then 'What were we talking about' and hes erased
    Wonder what will happen to the Tardis to make it go bang, will be interesting to see how that pans out
    But definately will be sad if we dont see Rory again because he was a good character and I wanted to see him more

    Next weeks episode looks interesting
    Looking forward to seeing where this season is going and how it will end

    I'm willing to bet that Rory (at least his body) ends up not erased, but just on the other side of the crack (short cut to the future?) at the point where the TARDIS meets it's end ( ). Aswell as the Clerics and Weeping Angels from "The Time Of Angels/Flesh And Stone". But then again, who is to say that the TARDIS dies at the end of this season? Maybe Steven Moffatt has a end episode plan involving the death of the TARDIS, similar to waht J.J. Abrams had planned for the end episode of LOST from the very beginning (which sucked IMO).

    OK

    How can the Dr put his hand in a crack that completely eradicates people with no bad things happening, and then have it react to Rory's body like it did?

    I suppose I could be Time Traveller protection (it must be a huge level by now for him).

    The lizard people (sorry, don't remember the name) were pretty good. Loved the interaction.

    I hope Rory isnt erased because I liked him as a character and wanted to see more of him, but it is possible we could see the Angels again too
    I also hope that the Tardis doesnt get destroyed at the end of this season, its a possibility it could, but hopefully it doesnt
    Has there been any sort of hint that this could be the last season? Because it is possible that it could be like the regeneration at the end of last series that was kept under wraps (but I think it is very unlikely that this is the last season)
    I agree that it could be some sort of setup for a final episode though, but lets hope that isnt coming soon

    What? What? WHAT?! I cannot believe what I just read there! Last season? How can you even ask that? Do you want to see Doctor Who end? I can't believe any self-respecting Doctor Who fan would even contemplate asking that!

    Good good lol
    Glad to also see that we
    Spoiler:
    will be keeping the same companion (companions if we find out Rory has survived, one can hope lol) for more than one series, not seen that since Rose (you could say Donna and Martha were also in 2 series, but they were only in 1 or 2 episodes before or after their main season)


    What? What? WHAT?! I cannot believe what I just read there! Last season? How can you even ask that? Do you want to see Doctor Who end? I can't believe any self-respecting Doctor Who fan would even contemplate asking that!
    I cant believe you are asking me that question lol
    A single word to those questions. No!. lol. I do not wish to see Doctor Who end
    I was just wondering that if it were its last season (and i certainly hope not) whether they had kept it very secret or hinted that it may be the end
    I can't believe any self-respecting Doctor Who fan would even contemplate asking that! - Just wanted to know so i could brace myself if it was going to end lol. I like knowing beforehand whether a certain episode is the last i will see so i can enjoy it

    It's not the last season. At least one more is guaranteed.

    Does the crack seen in this ep give us any more information? We know they are caused by the TARDIS exploding at some point in the future, it's probable they are related to the appearance of the TARDIS at any given location, and the time energy causes people to cease to ever have existed. Does the explosion that destroys the TARDIS therefore feed back along the TARDIS's entire timeline and entire existence then? Or is it just since it regenerated itself?

    Good good, always nice to know another season of Doctor Who will come after one ends
    On the question of the cracks, I honestly think we will have to wait and see because they told us they seemed to be revolving around Amy, now another piece of the puzzle has been added with the part of the Tardis and I reckon more pieces of the puzzle will be added before the cracks storyline ends, so I think im just going to wait and see

    But looking at names of episodes
    Spoiler:
    It would seem that whatever the Pandorica is, it will be opened (The Pandorica Opens) and something will make a big bang (The Big Bang), so maybe the cracks and the Tardis fragment will be resolved this season.
    Steven Moffat is writing both episodes so they should be good

    How can the Dr put his hand in a crack that completely eradicates people with no bad things happening, and then have it react to Rory's body like it did?
    He did cover his hand with a hankechief or something, and there was no time energy pouring out of the crack that time (A lot like when he was playing around with back in Eleventh Hour). Eventually, after he pulled out the Tardis shard, the time energy started to come out, and that would've erased people, and did erase Rory.

    And lol at people believing that this is the last season, even for a second. This show... I think it's one of those ones that'll never die. And especially not at the moment when we have a new Doctor and showrunner.
