I thought that too Weedle and CC's note of who opened the wormhole. Perhaps the Timelords' presence is there since the beginning of PoTD and we just didn't realise. this is going to be really interesting.

And on another note, I'm so enjoying the Doc back to his carefree self...I knew I would enjoy this episode in hindsight as his last hurrah before everything went wrong.
I know that I will very much enjoy watching all the Specials back-to-back when I have received the boxset, to see the build up, the ties and links from episode to episode and to judge all that with the insight of knowing the ending of those specials.

Jan ******* Moir!

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...schedules.html

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!
Ir just proves that she is quite stupid. Moir heavily imply that she finds DT to be quite a rubbish actor and yet she watched alot of his appearances? Moir also states that she's fed up with seeing him and makes it as if all 75 (well 60 as that was as many that had been shown when her article went up) hae been on BBC1 and 2.

It actually breaks down into this

BBC1 - 12
BBC2 - 12
BBC3 - 21
BBC4 - 1
CBBC - 1
Cbeebies - 9
BBC HD - 8
Overall TV appearances - 64

When it's shown like this, Evans and Moir are shown to be wrong both as BBC1 and 2 show only 18.6% of DT's appearance across BBC TV. It's even more damning as 12 into 21 shows that DT wasn't on the main channels each day. The bulk of the TV appearances is given over to BBC3 who showed 32.8%, this isn't very surprising as BBC3 show reruns of DW episodes all throughout the year, usually followed by a Confidential. The other channels are rather dived with BBC4 only showing one programme about the Open University which stars DT. Cbeebies shows 9 showings of bed time stories equating to 14.1%. CBBC only showed one programme with DT in it, that being Dreamland.
Finally, BBCHD only showed 8 programmes which are mostly Doctor who repeats and so resembles 12.5% overall.

BBC's radio coverage show 11 apperances over 4 stations. These stations being -

Radio 2 - 2
Radio 4 - 2
Radio 5 - 1
Radio 7 - 6

Radio 7 holds the highest amount of appearances with a radio play Dinky which holds 54.5% over all radio broadcasts and Radio 2 and 4 both come in equal with 18.2%. Radio 4 showed 2 broadcasts of Desert Island discs and Radio 2 showed a documentary in which Tennant interviewed Davies and Tennant also covered for Jonathan Ross on boxing day. David Tenant made one last appearance on Radio 5 live yesterday to build publicity for tonight's show.

I think this just goes to show that 75 appearances might sound like lots but it really isn't when it is shown over 21 days on 11 different stations.

Sorry for the rant but Moir makes my blood boil.

I think "You two, with me, spit-spot" were his last lines. Not sure if that is the exact quote, but something like that.

Stop that.

Now why did I tune into the HD channel as I've just watched most of Day 4 again. Going to watch EoT pt 1 again now

Daz really impressed by your analysis if only everyone would do their research as well.

I am just starting Part 1 again too.

Someone in the episode thread says that they just saw the DT/MS regeneration on the BBC News Channel! I can't imagine that would have been released in advance!

Okay something i've just picked up. Carmen says....it is returning, it is returning through the dark. AND THEN, then he will knock four times.

I take it then, that whatever it is has to return first, before he knocks four times? So we haven't heard the real knocking yet?

...or that "he" knocking causes "it" to return. I still think the real knocking is to come, though.

Yes but it was very clear in that it would return 'and then' he would knock four times. So I really took it that he would not knock until IT had returned. Otherwise she would have said it is returning through the dark AND he will knock four times, not THEN.

Morning Dgem. I'm 50/50. Half excited and half apprehensive.



Morning Solamenn. Don't work too hard. I have a pile of ironing to do today but that's the extent of my workload.
Just noticed that you made post 2000 this morning Tiggs - have another drink!

Well I think 'it' is Gallifrey and now it has returned the real knocking will begin. Still not sure what the knocking is or who is doing it though but that's half the fun

Ah! I haven't watched it for a bit and remembered it as "It is returning etc. He will knock four times" - I didn't remember the "then" bit.

I am really starting to get rather excited again - 3 hours!

Yes it could be Gallifrey. I would love it to be something completely out of left field though...something we haven't thought of. No idea about the knocking either.
