CHECK OUT MY NEW POST ABOUT THE SILENCE AND THEIR LINKS WITH DOCTOR WHO SERIES 5

Those that know me know that I’m a huge Doctor Who fan and after watching the first episode of series 6 last night I’m excited about what’s in store this season.

The first episode was part one of a two-parter (i can’t remember the last time a series started with a two-parter) and left many unanswered questions, which will hopefully be unraveled over the coming weeks.

And, of course, there’s still mysteries yet to be revealed from the previous series such as who tried to destroy the TARDIS?

I think unsolved mysteries like these that keep me guessing is one of the reasons I love Doctor Who so much and after the premiere finished I went straight to cyberspace to get other folks reactions and theories as to what might happen in future episodes.

One such example is on the official BBC Doctor Who website. Click on the link, then click on The Fourth Dimension. Here you’ll find a number of interesting facts about the first episode, but if you look closely you’ll also see that certain words have been italicised. When you put them together, you get the phrase:

ALL THE SECRETS YOU SEEK CAN BE FOUND HERE ON THE WEB(B).

Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find any of them lol. Please comment below if you find any :)

However, I did come across the following quote by Karen Gillan (the actress who plays one of the Doctor’s companians, Amy Pond):

“Everything’s so important and precise in Steven Moffat’s scripts. There are a couple of throwaway lines in the opening two-parter, which I thought were just a couple of funny gags but turn out to be one of the most important things that Amy’s ever said. And I didn’t know that at the time!”

Which got me wondering exactly which throwaway lines might Karen be referring to?

So, I re-watched the episode and made a note of all Amy Pond’s lines that may (or may not) hold clues to future events:

At the personal intervention of the king, the unnamed doctor was incarcerated without trial in the Tower of London.

According to contemporary accounts, two nights later a magical sphere some twenty feet across was seen floating away from the tower bearing the mysterious doctor aloft.

Mysterious sphere (balloon?)

It’s like he’s being deliberately ridiculous trying to attract our attention.

River, he can’t be dead. This is impossible!

Maybe he’s a clone or a duplicate or something.
(NOTE: I think this is just Moffat’s reassurance that it is the real the Doctor that is dead)

Wake up, go on wake up, you stupid bloody idiot.

You’re still talking but it doesn’t matter.

River, we can’t just let him die. We’ve got to stop it. How can you be okay with this?

Fishfingers and custard.

I have to tell the doctor….sorry,I don’t know why I said that.

Cuz you’re the newest.

If you can make it all the way to Earth, why steal technology that can barely get you to the Moon?

Time can be rewritten.

He’s my friend, if friend is the right word. I haven’t seen him in a while. I had something I wanted to tell him, but stuff always gets in the way.

I have to tell you something…no, it’s important, it has to be now. Doctor, I’m pregnant!

I know it’s an anti-climax but none of these lines struck me as holding any of the clues I was looking for :-( Please leave me a comment below if you spot anything of interest.

In fact, lines from the other cast members were much more interesting such as the referral to Jim the Fish still rebuilding his dam (a future adventure of the Doctor and River Song) and the Doctor’s sidenote that the year 1482 is “full of glitches”.

So I’m looking forward to the next episode to (hopefully) answer a few of the many questions.

Oh, and in trailer to Episode 2: Day of the Moon, you might have noticed that Amy, River and Rory have tally marks scrawled in ink on their bodies. According to the preview clip below, these self-penned marks represent a count of how many times they’ve seen the ‘Silent’ aliens.
