How many more episodes in this series?
Is next week the last one?
I think there's a series of Merlin due soon to take us up to Christmas.

She'll be back. She has to. We've not finished this story arc yet, and she has to be there when it concludes.

LIZS Sat 17-Sep-11 20:05:24

ds reckons they'll be back for ep.13

Rudawakening Sat 17-Sep-11 20:06:17

Only 2 more episodes in this series I think. I hope both of them come back.

PersonalClown Sat 17-Sep-11 20:06:38

2 more episodes to go.

I think he is saving them. I think it has something to do with what was in his room. I heard the Kloister bell so it can't be good.

She is signed for next series so she will be back.

Phew! She did annoy me at the start (and I still can't get used to him as the doctor) but I do like the dynamics of having a couple in the tardis rather than the 'will they won't they?'
Saw the Merlin trailer, very excited! Finally some good weekend tv - Merlin, Dr Who, Downton Abbey, George Gently, Casualty (currently watching x factor but prefer the auditions to the rest).
What is everyone else watching?

LilyBolero Sat 17-Sep-11 20:29:57

think she's booked for next season!

I think Amy Pond has got to be one of the most irritating characters on TV, it would be too good to be true if she was gone for good.

I've actually given up on Dr Who, I've found that I haven't watched the last two episodes I can't put my finger on it but it's not doing it for me anymore. Such a shame because I do like Matt Smith as the Doctor.

I know what you mean chickflit, it's all the hints that irritate me - River/Melody, Dr's death etc. Mind you James Corden was good before so will enjoy that. Plus I can't take to him as the doctor - never trust a doctor who is younger than you! grin must stop looking obsessively for David Tennant on any programme

I have shed a tear at every single companion departure of the new series, but this one, though beautifully done, left me cold. I just cant warm to Amy and though I think Matt Smith is a great actor I just dont really care about his Doctor.

Was kind of hoping she'd gone for good - cant understand a word she says grin

Presumably she and Rory have to be left behind. Otherwise why would they have been searching for him in the run up to the shooting?

Someone mentioned that on the other thread. Surely the shooting is in their past though. Amy said she was pregnant and River was with them. They were also searching for him at the start of "Let's Kill Hitler" because they wrote his name in the cornfield.

I did notice a trailer on CBBC today for the new series of Sarah Jane Adventures - my favourite ever companion. I reckon I'll shed a few tears at the end of that series.

picnicbasketcase Sat 17-Sep-11 22:20:42

I hope they do get someone else very soon. Amy is irritating, Rory only exists for the writer to kill off every five minutes and River Song is the crappest plot arc ever and I wish she had never been introduced. Roll on a new companion and less of the timey wimey shit.

Maisiethemorningsidecat Sat 17-Sep-11 22:25:06

Oh please, please, please let this be true. One (if not the) most annoying and pointless characters on TV. Her acting abilities seem to extend no further than swishing her hair and speaking very very quickly to mirror Matt Smith.

The plots are also far too convoluted now imo.

LadyGooGoo Sat 17-Sep-11 22:25:31

timey wimey shit

Absolutely!

I want a return to proper doctor adventures, no more of the guilt that seems to be ever present.

How can you have new Sarah Jane chickflit, didn't she die?? Or was this filmed before? I love that show so hope it is the latter.

LilyBolero Sat 17-Sep-11 23:42:48

They filmed about 5 or 6 episodes before she died I think.

Idontknowhowtohelpher Sun 18-Sep-11 09:30:38

Next Sarah Jane Adventure is on 3rd October

MigratingCoconuts Sun 18-Sep-11 12:11:02

ok, going out on a bit on a limb here.... I like Matt Smith's doctor and I also like Amy Pond, River Song and Rory and all.....

David Tennant's insistance on a long winded monologue just as he was facing certain doom at the end of every episode was really get right up my nose.

EggyAllenPoe Sun 18-Sep-11 12:17:14

Sarah Jane didn't die though (or did i miss something)

i like river song. if it was the last we were going to see of soppy-faced and sipid pond, the better. sadly, i don't believe so.

In my book, Good companions carry Nitro 9.

ForYourDreamsAreChina Sun 18-Sep-11 12:17:47

I live in hope. That the Doc, Amy and Alex Kingston all get eaten up by some big fat scary alien,never to darken my Saturday night again.

40 years of Dr Who loving. Gone. Whoosh. Because of 3 "actors" who are all "jazz hands" with their Ac-ting. Gah.

Let me know when the cast changes, and I'll come running. Till then I don't even watch anymore.

browneyesblue Sun 18-Sep-11 12:23:48

Eggy - Elisabeth Sladen (who played Sarah Jane) died in April.

I hope River Song returns.
