The Doctor is In!

Just a little reminder that BBC America is running the entire sixth season at 7:00 AM beginning with the game-changing episode "The Impossible Astronaut". And at 9:00 PM EST, I'll be here live-blogging during "Asylum of the Daleks" in the commentary. Looking forward to a fun evening as the remnants of Isaac fly over our heads!

  1. Just a reminder to everyone that I run a clean ship here. Nothing over PG-13-type language, and we keep things civil. Trolls and flamers will receive a free upgrade.

  10. Kathy and I have been watching the Pond Life minisodes, and I still feel like we missed something.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This almost looks like the bad end of the 2010 Proms!

    ReplyDelete
  14. And no Mary Sue "The Amy Pond Show" co-starring the Doctor.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Triangles? The heck with that... more cowbell!!!

  16. Scardey-Daleks! Bad day in the playground.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Didn't we just leave this party on the planet of Hoth?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, goody, rundown fossilised Daleks for Rory to play with. Remembering "The Big Bang", we know how well that stops 'em....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay, I'm caught up. Is it just me, or does that one guy Amy and The Doctor are with reminds you of Mickey?

    ReplyDelete
  20. And doesn't the crew remind you of when we first met Kryten on Red Dwarf? Kathy says, "Who turned out the lights?"

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay, got the wrong girl as Clara, the new companion, sorry about that. Just turned on the CC to help with fast-paced dialogue.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great googaly moogaly! Zombie Daleks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah, Mark, when she first appeared I asked Kathy "Do you remember when Martha first appeared on the Battle of Canary Wharf/Torchwood episode, and Amy was in Ancient Rome?" Pause... "No reason!"

    ReplyDelete
  24. They're all waking up. Time to hide behind the sofa.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Called it! They weren't saying "eggs".

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, oh, the walking corpses got Amy's wristband. Slippery-handed scalliwags...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Refer to previous post about fossilisation.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I guess I'm still behind. Haven't seen what happened with Amy yet.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I had to DVR back just a little myself, so I'm right at Amy fretting about what her fate might be without the protective band.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And the Crisis On Infinite Earths pose.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Who's your daddy?" Well... better than "Who Da man?"

    ReplyDelete
  32. Okay, we're past the Behind the Scenes, and the AT&T commercial just ran.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ah, cool. Some new Doctor Who Insiders!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Need to go to Scotland some day. I'm just not angry enough...

  35. Ah, I know how to get angry... start drinking heavily!

    1. Add saving the Pond marriage on the Doctor's to do list. Another thing that makes the Doctor the Doctor.

  37. Oh, man, the ghosts of Demons Run will never really be gone...

  38. I love Chris Hardwick's promos for newtoWHO. Gooba Gobba, one of us! One of us!

  39. I'm not on Twitter, but I first found out about Doctor Who in an article in Starlog #24.

    1. Or was it #23? One of those issues...

      Delete
    2. Me too! The episode guide, right?

      Delete
    3. I don't think. It had Tom Baker, and was an introduction about the show. And I think it was issue 23.

      Delete
  40. And we're back! Damn, this episode's almost over!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Are they pulling An Occurance At Owl Creek Bridge here?

  42. The to-do-list is getting smaller...(-:

  43. We'll remember...espcially at Christmas time.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, great, mind-slippy Daleks are ALL asking the forbidden question!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Doctor Who? I don't know. Third base!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Next Time, Dinosaurs on a spaceship.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Do I really have to say it? I'M TIRED OF THESE @&$!! DINOSAURS ON THIS @#$&!!! SPACESHIP!

    ReplyDelete
  48. And that's a wrap. Thanks for having me, Mark. Now can you answer me a question: how does deciphering hard-to-read words prove I'm not a robot?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I don't think it does. And all I can say is... I'm so sorry...

  49. Good start to the season, I would say! Now I have to burn several copies of it for my brother Tim and members of our church, including my Welsh pastor. Always good to have my minister on my side when it comes to the Doctor.

    ReplyDelete
  50. And if you pose your question about the next episode to your minister and members of your church, let me help with the FX edited version of what you were quoting: "I'm tired of these monkey fighting dinosaurs on this Monday to Friday spaceship". Hope it helps.
