Finally a story which works in 45 minutes and which proves there's
absolutely no need for stupid prancing around since it stops a story from
being told properly.

Now when are the other writers going to learn that and why didn't someone
tell them from the start?

Pitty Amy and Rory had to go the way they did, and who's going to tell
Rory's dad?

There were no dates on the grave stone so how do we know they weren't sent
back even further than the 1930s?

What was the guarantee that the Weeping Angel would send them both back to
the same time?

If it was the 1930s then since they were around about 30 years old, having
spent 10 years with the Doctor, that could put their death in the 1980s or
early 90s at about the time they were supposed to have been born.

What was there to stop the Doctor and River going back to see them after the
1930s if New York in the 30s was blocked off, or them going to see the
Doctor and River when they went to Area 51?

How come the time distortion wasn't noticed by anyone when the Daleks were
in Manhatten?

Maybe they'll both be returned to their own time in time for the 50th
anniversary special.

The Doctor tries to travel to New York on April 3, 1938, but bounces off because New York is full of temporal disturbances. Why doesn't he just land a few miles out and come in by taxi or by car? I do know that not all of Earth is covered, since the Doctor successfully visited Berlin that month!

After the TARDIS bounces off 1938 New York, it returns to 2012. I had thought that the year should be 2013, since "The Power Of Three" was produced in 2012, set in the present, and took a television year, so I thought that the year would have advanced to 2013.

There was lots of prancing around in Dredd (2012). In fact the whole movie
was almost non-stop prancing around. They pranced a little this way then
pranced a little that way. Then they want PRANCE, PRANCE, PRANCE.

And just when Dredd was having the last word Anderson PRANCED OFF.

Dredd was a new movie based directly off the comic book franchise so wasn't
a remake (or even a sequel). I must admit a closet liking for emotionally
textured rollercoasters to LOVED the bit where Dredd got heavy and played
tag team with Anderson. This played into a flat scene where Moma fell 200
floors to her death which was a neat coincidental twist on this weeks DW
episode. While both scenes lingered Moffat's didn't have as many layers and
was a touch overlong but certainly better than RTD's goodbyes.

Paul Verhoeven's 'Total Recall' is a movie classic and was an awesome
cinematic experience. I never felt anything much about another sci-fi movie
until The Matrix hit the big screen a decade later. I'm not philosophically
opposed to remakes or sequels, or borrowing from the same source material
(or even borrowing from other material). Unfortunately, the Total Recall
remake and Matrix sequels were poor. They fall firmly into the category of
movies I wish had never been made.

The first Dredd movie had its plus points but was otherwise a misfire. Some
people suggest the producers misunderstood the material or market.

Close as anyone who's ever read the REAL Judge Dredd can tell, a
couple of people in a bar who'd once seen a Dredd comic from a
distance through a dirty window speculating on what it might be about
and getting it wrong in pretty much ever concievable way.

Well, I dunno. I watched part of it the other day on Youtube, by
coincidence. It's actually got quite a lot of the comic in it. The main
mistake was some Hollywoodisation, which every movie has to do to some
degree- the trick is getting the right balance. Stallone was miscast- but
then he's miscast as anything but a punch-drunk boxer, what with the
dim-witted look and slurred speech. They added "comic" relief with Rob
Schneider. They had Dredd take his helmet off, unaware of how much hardcore
fans would bitch about that. Not many A-List actors would do a film with
their face covered all the way, at least back then.

I think Dredd is one of those things like Batman and (original) Star Trek
that has a whole mythology built up by fans that it was something it wasn't.
Like, Batman (or Bat Man, whatever) was this hardcore gritty adult thing-
then you look back and it wasn't, it was some guy dressed as a clown and
also the Joker. And "let's go down to the Bat Cave and polish the Batmobile,
Dick!". For kids. The "darkness" was Frank Miller's re-invention in the 80s.
But the idea it was always serious and dark acts as a justification for
being a fan of silly old Golden Age comics. Likewise, Roddenberry created a
myth on the convention circuit that Trek had been this great philosophical
thing, but when you watch the episodes, it never was- it was a fun sci-fi
adventure series in the classic 60s formula; it had one or two "liberal"
ideas in it, but as Harve Bennet said, when he was producer of Wrath of
Khan; Roddenberry talked his ear off about all these things the series was
supposed to have been, then Bennett went and actually watched the episodes,
and they weren't there.

Likewise, Dredd. It's a kid's comic strip, and a satire of police dramas
with everything turned up to 11. And you read the old comics (i did when I
was a kid) and there was all this wacky silly stuff in there, that created
this surreal universe. But then you get all these people saying, "it's
supposed to be deadly serious", and it's like they don't get the fact that
it was taking the piss. In that sense, it's quite disturbing that apparently
there are all these people out there who don't get that making a cop "judge,
jury and executioner" and having him pack people off to the cubes for
trivialities like jaywalking and the whole "citizen" tacked on there was a
reaction against the Dirty Harry type stuff- you know, where The Cop is
always right, and held back from doing justice by those pesky Constitutional
Safeguards and Due Process and that stuff.

So in that sense, Dredd was a quirky British take on the American style of
fascism; and it used a lot of humour, surreality, and quirkiness to make
that whole world work. Asking for it to be too serious seems to me to be
missing the point.

River Song to the Doctor: Why did you have to break mine (wrist, which was being gripped firmly by a Weeping Angel)? River Song got out, but had to break her OWN wrist. Yet the book she wrote implies that the DOCTOR broke her wrist! This would mean that history DID get changed a little! The Doctor uses some of his regeneration energy to heal her wrist.

I never get your reviews. You tend to bring up some valid questions but then proceed to give every episode 10/10. By this standard, Genesis or Androzani should get about 20/10.

Some people like Kevin McCarthy died at 80ish born before that recently. In all fairness.

You forget one of those was born in NY then, I think, and changed as a little girl, although think something in the folklore requiring a
maturity before regen works, or it just makes sense.

Which time, when they chased 1st one or built the building they chased the first one too and fell off of.

¡Maybe they'll both be returned to their own time in time for the 50th

Yet agains the word "special" gets a adjustment.

We don't, but the overwhelming likelihood is that the angel that got
them is the same one as got Rory at the beginning of the episode, and
I think 'Blink' established that the same angel is liable (but not

If it was the 1930s then since they were around about 30 years old, having
spent 10 years with the Doctor, that could put their death in the 1980s or
early 90s at about the time they were supposed to have been born.
The gravestone did look fairly new, though it's hard to tell with
gravestones.

What was there to stop the Doctor and River going back to see them after the
1930s if New York in the 30s was blocked off, or them going to see the
Doctor and River when they went to Area 51?
Fixed points in time. Though there's no absolutely necessary reason
the doctor can't pop back to New Jersey in 1940 and send them a
telegram to meet him somewhere, whisk them off for an adventure, then
drop them back home, but if he were to meddle in their lives, he'd be
chancing getting one of them killed or lost somewhere, which would
violate the fixed point in time, and we all know how that ends.

How come the time distortion wasn't noticed by anyone when the Daleks were
in Manhatten?
Maybe they'll both be returned to their own time in time for the 50th
anniversary special.

It does seem to be one of the Moff's rules that once you know when or
how a person dies (e.g. Madame de Pompadour, the Brigadier), you can
no longer travel back and meet them at all. It doesn't make sense,
but at least he's consistent.

The only exception seems to be River and the Doctor meeting each
other, but that's probably because they're both time travellers, or
because she isn't really dead in the library computer.

That's silly.

The problem is either silly restrictions or use Bill and Ted rules were wishing
makes it true, since you can wait until the end of the universe for someone to
come back and make the wish come true.

We basically see why in The Wedding of River Song. If you see someone
die, it's a fixed point in time for you, so if you go back and
interact with them afterward, you run the risk of altering the
circumstances of their death, and then it's all winston churchill

It does suggest that if you were *very careful*, you could go back and
have tea with them on the odd occasion, but going off on adventures is
right out (And even tea is taking a risk, particularly if you're The
Doctor and trouble is liable to find you wherever you go.)

adventures with them, just as long as it's before they reach 80 something?

There were no dates on the grave stone so how do we know they weren't sent
back even further than the 1930s?
What was the guarantee that the Weeping Angel would send them both back to
the same time?
We don't, but the overwhelming likelihood is that the angel that got
them is the same one as got Rory at the beginning of the episode, and
I think 'Blink' established that the same angel is liable (but not
guaranteed) to send you the same amount back in time.
So ONE Angel got to feed off of Rory TWICE?

Finally a story which works in 45 minutes and which proves there's
absolutely no need for stupid prancing around since it stops a story from
being told properly.
Now when are the other writers going to learn that and why didn't someone
tell them from the start?
Pitty Amy and Rory had to go the way they did, and who's going to tell
Rory's dad?
There were no dates on the grave stone so how do we know they weren't sent
back even further than the 1930s?
Why weren't there dates on the gravestone? Isn't it standard operating procedure to put a person's death date on the gravestone?

To figure out WHEN Rory and Amy died, I propose that the Doctor dig up their bodies and carbon date them to determine how long they have been dead, then subtract from the current year.

I am amazed that Amy would actually TRUST that Angel to send her back to the same time as it sent Rory! After all, according to the Doctor, Weeping Angels are the most malevolent lifeform in the universe! (A Time For Angels).
Post by Agamemnon
How come the time distortion wasn't noticed by anyone when the Daleks were
in Manhatten?
In what year were the Daleks in Manhatten? The Weeping Angels were there in 1938.

Why didn't anyone notice the beheaded state of the Statue of Liberty?

Why weren't there dates on the gravestone? Isn't it standard operating procedure to put a person's death date on the gravestone?
To figure out WHEN Rory and Amy died, I propose that the Doctor dig up their bodies and carbon date them to determine how long they have been dead, then subtract from the current year.
Or go to the local library and read through the microfiched newspapers until he finds the death notices of Amy and Rory.

Finally a story which works in 45 minutes and which proves there's
absolutely no need for stupid prancing around since it stops a story from
being told properly.
Now when are the other writers going to learn that and why didn't someone
tell them from the start?
Pitty Amy and Rory had to go the way they did, and who's going to tell
Rory's dad?
There were no dates on the grave stone so how do we know they weren't sent

In "Time for Angels/Flesh and Stone", the Weeping Angels kill people. In "Angels Take Manhatten", they send people back in time. Why the change in Angel mode of operations?
Post by Agamemnon
What was the guarantee that the Weeping Angel would send them both back to
the same time?
What was the guarantee that the Angel would even send Amy back in time, rather than simply killing her? She is sure showing an amazing level of trust, in a very Malevolent life form!

Sending people back in time then feeding on the displaced time energy is
their normal mode of operations (as established in Blink.)

In Time/Flesh, they're already feeding on the time energy of the crack,
and don't need to send anyone back in time to displace any more energy.

Each individual angel always sends someone back by a fixed amount of
time, although that varies from angel to angel. (Again, this was
established in Blink.)

What would it have to gain by killing her? By sending her back, it can
feed. If it kills her, it can't. No brainer.

I had gotten the impression in "Time For Angels" that the Angels in that cave system were starved for energy. An Angel had therefore hijacked a ship and crashed it on the surface just above the caves so that the other Angels could feast on the radiation leaking from it. If the Angels were feeding on the time crack, why would they have needed the radiation from the ship?

Have the Angels ever considered setting up a Time Travel Agency whereby people could employ their time travel services, and pay with their temporal energies?

Plot: Weeping Angels haunt a baseball stadium (Angels in the Outfield).

If it was the 1930s then since they were around about 30 years old, having
spent 10 years with the Doctor, that could put their death in the 1980s or
early 90s at about the time they were supposed to have been born.
What was there to stop the Doctor and River going back to see them after the
1930s if New York in the 30s was blocked off, or them going to see the
Doctor and River when they went to Area 51?
How come the time distortion wasn't noticed by anyone when the Daleks were
in Manhatten?
Maybe they'll both be returned to their own time in time for the 50th
anniversary special.
Another maddening item: Someone forgot to put the death dates on the Rory and Amy tombstone! I had thought that putting death dates was SOP.

Great moments: Amy reading a book, and she and the Doctor realizing that the book is about Rory, who had just gone to get coffee!

The TARDIS being blocked from landing in New York on April 3, 1938 by temporal anomolies. But what's to keep the TARDIS from landing a few miles outside New York?

River Song's wrist being caught by an Angel, and River Song asking the Doctor (both in the book and in real life) why he had to break her wrist. He says that its because he read it in a book! However, River Song eventually broke her own wrist to escape. Does that mean that events in the book can be changed?

The Doctor, Amy, Rory, and River Song seeing old Rory die in a bed at the Winter Quay.

Rory and Amy being zapped back in time.

The tombstone with the death ages of Rory and Amy. But why doesn't it give the YEARS in which they died?

The last page of the novel, with Amy's afterword.

Amy and Rory lived into their 80s, so if they arrived in the 1930s, they would live into the 1990s or early 2000s, assuming that they were in their 20s when kidnapped by that Angel.
