    So who was policeman Brendon? And what up with his Dad and boss not ageing? Maybe a human experiment by the cybermen?

    And I though Earth had been made uninhabitable in the future (Orphan 55)?

    I think the stuff with Brendon will lead into this Timeless child business as opposed to the Cybermen.

    I don't think the cyberman stuff was happening on Earth in this episode in fairness.

    As for the episode.... let's go and bring some gear to the frontline that will get destroyed in 2 minutes and now there's no back up plan great going team Tardis! also lets leave the Cyberman in possession of the TARDIS while we're at it... as plans go that was the worst
    A word of advice... there are creatures that live between this dimension and the next, fiendish creatures that feast on the suffering of an entire world to satiate their eternal hunger. Support the Gateworld Cantina or suffer the fate of all who fall into the clutches of the 'Eladrith Ynneas'

    wiedly the cyber leader makes no mention of the tardis, maybe he forgot in his anger chasing them?

    I got the impression that Brendon was the lone cyberman and that it's going to tie into the whole timeless child/everything the Doctor knows is built on a lie thing.

    I really enjoyed this ep, it's probably my favorite of the season.

    I'm still waiting for Doc Ruth to reappear... that'd give us Cybermen, Master, and Doc[2]...

    Finally got around to watching it. Will probably make sense after tomorrow...

    Do agree about the Doctor seemingly leaving the TARDIS behind...

    Doc 7 never parked the TARDIS too far from the action.

    Oh wait - Greatest Show in the Galaxy - had a huge trek to get there...

    I almost forgot about the second Doctor. This Doctor seems to park the TARDIS really far away often lol. Graham even mentioned it in the previous ep when they were all soaked from walking in the rain.

    It's been awhile since I've looked forward to watching a new episode of Doctor Who as much as I'm looking forward to this season finale. I probably won't be able to watch it until at least a few days after it airs because of my schedule, but I really can't wait to see it.

    Hey, why do you think they put GPS and turn-by-turn directions into phones, cars and such? It was the only way male drivers could get relief from the constant demands of their significant others to stop and ask for directions.
