Looks good.  I'm not sure what Moff means by the fourth time, unless he's counting this and Clara's scene there in DOTD as separate.  I can only think of two previous occasions the school's been used, in An Unearthly Child and Remembrance of the Daleks.

25  Travels In Time And Space / Mission To The Unknown / Interesting theory on: February 21, 2014, 02:01:30 pm
I came across this somewhere on Facebook - you may have heard it, but the full implications of the theory were new to me:

In The Pandorica Opens, River buys a vortex manipulator from Dorium, which he describes as taken off the wrist of a time agent.

Dorium worked frequently with the Headless Monks, who decapitate their victims.

Jack Harkness, who was a time agent and has a V.M., is believed to have ended up as a disembodied head.

The BBC have announced the death of Christopher Barry, one of the great early Doctor Who directors.  Besides a lot of other TV work, his Doctor Who stories were The Daleks (including his handling of the first reveal of the Daleks), The Rescue, The Romans, The Savages, The Power of the Daleks, The Daemons, The Mutants, Robot, The Brain of Morbius, and... er, The Creature from the Pit.

RIP.

39  Travels In Time And Space / Christmas 2013 - The Time of the Doctor / Re: Rate & Review The Time of the Doctor on: February 08, 2014, 04:05:31 pm
I really enjoyed it for the most part.  A couple of things bothered me though.  First was what I consider to be a whopping plot hole - the message being broadcast was from the Time Lords, presumably in Gallifreyan, yet neither the Doctor nor the TARDIS could decipher it??  At the beginning of "The Pandorica Opens" the Doctor said the TARDIS could translate anything.  Did I miss something?  I've watched it several times now.

The TARDIS translation seems to be rather like the Star Trek Universal Translator - it has a built-in mechanism that makes it cut out whenever it's dramatically effective to do so (in ST it's usually when someone wants to show off their Klingon).  It's not quite as inconsistent in NuWho as in the classic series, but sometimes the writers seem to forget.

Of course, River does say in AGMGTW that Gallifreyan writing doesn't translate, but there's never been any problem in the past with Time Lords making themselves understood.  And there's no reason why the Doctor wouldn't understand it, anyway.

I completely agree about the planet's conditions - I think I commented on that in another thread somewhere.  If it's like that because they're in the polar regions, it would be the opposite in summer.  If it's permanently winter, that would mean the planet doesn't have a tilt and there'd be equal day and night.  I can't think of any way there'd only be mostly night and a few minutes daylight all over the planet.  And, if they are in the polar regions, why didn't they found their colony somewhere better?
