They want this season to be the anniversary season, so they needed to either start late or have ludicrous delays between episodes if they were to get half of it this year and half next.

Or so I heard, I'm not a terribly reliable source of info.

Not quite Zap, but close. See the thing is, the very first episode of Doctor Who (The frankly brilliant An Unearthly Child no really go track it down) aired the 23rd of November, 1963. By shifting the show towards autumn in this manner, they get the audience used to the idea in time for the fiftieth anniversary for next year.

I'm wondering if Moffat is going to keep with certain traditions regarding ten year anniversaries. I'd love to see how he'd handle Omega. Though I somehow doubt we'd see a multi-Doctor story, would love to see that too.

And yes, for those of you that paid attention to that date... it is the very day after the JFK assassination. Not to mention Aldous Huxley and CS Lewis' deaths. This is a piece of trivia that I can't help but be fascinated by because the timing is so Doctor Who.

Heh, I wish I could find the original Doctor Who (before the 9th doctor) that has Subtitles or Closed Captioning. My "Internet Scouring Powers" are not strong enough to find them.

For the next best thing, you could google for the script and watch the show at the same time on netflix or whatever, with the pause button until you catch up reading.

That may work, though I prefer more real time "transcripts" then alternating reading from the script and watching the show.

I did find http://mttu.asbo5.com/en/2011/06/faq/. It a site called Mission to the Unknown and its apparently Germans who make subs for both languages for those early doctors.

I suspect that there'll be multiple Doctors for the anniversary, but just 9-10-11.

Maybe 8 too, Paul McGann isn't looking that old compared to the others, and 8 was the Doctor during the Time War, which is probably going to at least be referenced (and possibly involved in the plot if Omega is showing up), but I honestly doubt he'd appear.

It would be nice for the movie doctor to appear in an episode.

It can't come fast enough.

I made the mistake of watching Nash's Old Who reviews, and it got Doctor in Distress, the "we are the world" style protest save-the-show song from 1985, stuck in my head.

I need new episodes badly to SCRUB MY BRAIN.

I just watched his newest this morning... I... am still not sure if I was watching that, or if it was an exhaustion-fueled nightmare...

Now taking bets on how long that Dalek memory wipe lasts. They freaking have automated machines keyed to accept his testimony instead of a DNA sample, they're going to figure out his relevance via basic mechanical maintenance and non-psychicly-attached historical record eventually.

My money is on either until the season finale or until the 50th anniversary.

Just caught Angels Take Manhattan.

That episode was stupid. So stupid.

[Aside from the insanity of NOBODY NOTICING THE STATUE OF LIBERTY moving halfway across town (I'll give them that it's an effective visual, but I'm pretty sure there is literally never a point in time when someone isn't looking at that thing), the whole "the future can't change once we've read what's going to happen" is... stupid. Aside from the fact that people can lie (and River Song seems especially adept at that), it acts more like "the future happens like we assume it will based one what we've read" and the only reason they're proven right is because the plot says so.

I mean, so what if they see a gravestone in a cemetery at the end? That doesn't mean they're buried there. That means someone put a gravestone with their names there on it. It's stupid.

And what happened to those crazy time monsters that attack when you cause a paradox, anyways?

[On top of that, bringing back characters whose story was pretty much over already, just to kill them off is really shitty writing in a shared universe. Moffatt may be the head writer now, but that won't last forever, and by killing off his companions, he's preventing anyone in the future from ever using them. It's like bringing your toys to the sandbox, then not letting any of the other kids from playing with them. It's childish, and wasteful.]
