    I must now leave this thread until Monday night. I got my mother to PVR DotD and I'll be at her house tomorrow, but I still want to go into the big-screen experience on Monday completely fresh and unspoiled. Delayed gratification, baby!

    Oh good, so it wasn't just me who got all weepy when he showed up. Can't help it; he was my first Doctor and it just seemed wrong to not have one of the classic Doctors turn up. Very fitting that it was him.

    And I squeed at the brief shot of Capaldi's eyes.

    I was out all day with family stuff, but I've recorded both the Adventures in Time and Space and the special for viewing tonight and tomorrow. It just started hailing here, so I'm happy to curl up with some hot tea and the Dr.

    I thought it was fabulous. Son wanted to watch in real time, but we'd missed 3 episodes from last year. Watched "The Name of the Doctor" first to get the backstory.

    I've got a soft spot for Rose, so it was good to see her. John Hurt was just awesome, and Doctor #4 showing up as the curator brought cheers. They even got in a Captain Jack mention. Tennent's last line "I don't want to go" - classic.

    This sort of reset the franchise, though. The Doctor has always been dealing with guilt about his homeland and being the last Time Lord. Will the next one go searching for Gallifrey?

    I only started watching during with Tennant, so I don't have as much of the background, but I still enjoyed it (even if I did have to look up some of the old references). A number of nice nods to the past including the scarf. And it was fun to hear "13" with such determination. Got me excited for the next series.

    I've been watching since the 70's and seeing Tom Baker was incredible. and yes, it absolutely made me but made me feel young and old at the same time. For those of you "youngsters" that haven't seen the Baker episodes....yes they were cheesier, but he really, to me, more than any of his predecessors, set the tone and quirky attitude for Doctors to come. I watched all the older Doctors, Hartnell,Troughten, Pertwee, but Baker brought his inner Doctor to the audience...couldn't get enough, it's still the first iconic image most people think of.. the hat, coat, curly mop of hair and incredibly long scarf. Heck I learned to knit just so I could make one!
    Baker, Davidson and Tennant are by far my favorite Doctors. I quite enjoy Matt Smith as well. It's amusing to see Peter Davidson on Law and Order UK. ( But then I get a kick out of my other teen crush, David McCallum from Man from UNCLE as Ducky on NCIS. ok I admit it..I'm old.

    I am so confused. Why does Moffatt constantly just ret-con everything according to his own desires? Hey, the destruction never happens--but what about Ten's last episodes?

    I enjoyed it (sans giggly annoying Elizabeth I and Ten). I really like Clara. ETA to say I MISS NINE. I wish Eccleston wasn't all "No I want nothing to do with Who now!" Boo.

    I'm really looking forward to Capaldi.

    I thought the retcon was brilliant. It allows for the Doctor to have a new mission and they can cite to the new continuity as a way of giving the Doctor additional lives. In a way, I think it was more than Moffatt writing for his own desires; he was writing for the future showrunners by giving them a much more expansive sandbox to play in.

    Moff is a genius.
    Not only did he bring back the doctor's innocence, but he did give opportunities to go on with that show like ... forever ! Brilliant!
    And 13 doctor made me WHAAAAAAAT the HELL ? LOL LOL
    Now I get all he said prior to this episode.
    I am DYING for the Xmas special now.

    Actually there is room for both. Note in the show that the "war room" folks said something like the High Council tried something that didn't work - that's Ten's last episodes. Also, loved the fact that 8.5, 9, and 10 won't remember that they didn't blow it all up. So, that doesn't change that part. Also, the fact remains that the Daleks were destroyed (about as much as they were before ), and that Gallifrey is again kind of timelocked..

    I have to say that the second time through, I kept thinking about how this story might have been constructed had Eccleston said yes. Would he have been the "War Doctor"? You could see hints I think. Did you notice that 8.5 was wearing a leather jacket very similar to 9?

    I loved all of the fan service bits, most especially when the Doctors are around the button “Never cowardly or cruel. Never give up, never give in.” A reference to the character bible from the early years of the show.

    So excited to see Peter Capaldi's Doctor 12/13. "Going home the long way round".

    Subsequent viewings will probably reveal more things that I find annoying, amazing, and confusing, but last night they were all overshadowed by awesome.

    I thought it was awesome- a really interesting look at the early series and how the BBC worked in the early days. I didn't know that the first producer was a woman (highly unusual in the early 1960's). Cool.
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    Okay, this is one of the funniest thing to come out in a long time. Watch until the end.

    Hope the link works.

    No, I've watched it four times, so you're only slightly crazy because I'm not mad yet!
