I thought it was a good first part of the double episode finale on Saturday.

Particularly liked the bit where Amy is menaced by a detached Cyberman head which then broke open to reveal a skull inside... well realised.

Bit of a epic conclusion with the Doctor trapped, Amy apparently dead and who knows what has happened to River in the TARDIS... how can they sort it out? Sure it will all be resolved well in the 55min ep this coming Saturday.

The Pandorica Opens was incredible; a fantastic episode, truly epic and the best of the series I thought!

I think that young Amelia will save the day.

If you think back to the 2nd of the weeping angels episodes (I think it was ep5), the Doctor told Amy to remember what he had told her when she was 6.

I think that he knew something was going to happen, and he's implanted something in her mind, and as the enemies of the doctor have trapped him using her memories, there will be something in them that will rescue him.

Oh, plus I've seen a leaked photo of Amelia standing infront of the Pandorica :D

So the season is now history and for me the best was...

1) The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood (the Silurians returning)
2) Vampires In Venice
3) The Eleventh Hour

I wanted to include The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang but whilst the first part was marvellous the concluding segment I felt was rather too wordy and not as action packed as I was hoping for.

The Time of the Angels/Flesh and Stone initially I thought seemed akin to 'skulking around in the caves' like classic series stories 'Earthshock' and '...and the Silurians' but overall the Stone Angels for me wasn't too memorable.

No major disappointments in the thirteen week run, just pleasant 'also rans', satisfying to watch once and then dispensed.

Personally I'm not entirely sold on Matt Smith as the Doctor or Karen Gillan as Amy but the TARDIS interior, titles and new theme tunes are the series greatest successes IMO.

My Top 3 are:

1. The Pandorica Opens
2. Amy's Choice
3. Vincent and the Doctor

I thought Matt Smith was excellent, you just need to let go of your Tennant love Sarah! I especially enjoyed the incidental music this season, they've finally got the balance right to make this series the most cinematic yet.

I'm incredibly behind with the most recent season (I have excuses if you need them), but I just saw episodes 4 and 5 at last, and am pleased to report that I didn't cringe once. Hopefully, this will continue through the rest of the season.

scroll down to the October 2010 section of this page (http://www.drwho-online.co.uk/releases/) and you'll find great cover artwork and worthy content for the 2 disc release of classic Tom Baker 6-part story "Seeds of Doom". This was 70s Who at the height of its powers and fits in well with the 'B' side instrumental to Human League single 'Boys and Girls'!

Intriging idea by Steven Moffatt recently but I think it is a great way to offer up Doctor Who in 2011... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTm7ZvSsM2A

As companions go I've had a fondness for the scatty Jo Grant who worked so well with the third Doctor and have just had a look (via BBCiPlayer) at her appearance in a two-part 'Sarah Jane Adventures' tale.

Satisfied with her inclusion, back story touching moments with Sarah Jane (saying that they had both been to Peladon) and the Doctor (on the red coloured alien planet talking about all that she had done 'up the amazon with Prof Jones). Writer RTD even threw in a controversal line about how many times the Doctor can regenerate.

As to the story and the SJA well for me it's rather dispensible, but then I am well past the age for which the series is targeted for.

I've actually been enjoying the Sarah Jane Adventures much more than any of Dr Who S5 which was generally quite poorly executed for the most part.
Not sure what that says about my mental age but I also think that Merlin is far more enjoyable this year too.


Dr Who is seriously missing RTD but I'm hoping that they can turn it around next year.

Series 5 was like Christopher H Bidmead era Who but without the laughs.

Craig Ferguson recently devoted his entire US chat show to Doctor Who, and this is the, er, song and dance routine that opened the show... :D

Personally I was really intending to hate this year's Christmas special thinking it was going to be sickeningly cheesy... but in the end thought it was well told, dramatically engaging, everyone seemed on top form, some good special effects (flying fish and shark) and the 'icing on the cake' is the brief glimpse of some of what we will be served up in 2011.

Anyone else enjoy this festive special???

I thought it was the best xmas Dr. Who ever! But perhaps a bit too clever for younger kids?

I thought the special was brilliant! But the flying shark+carriage at the end was a bit much, IMO. Can't wait for Series 6!
