On #8 (Keen Eddie), you wrote Colin Salmon as Walter Salmon. I love Arrow, too! My personal list includes Firefly, Moonlight, and Almost Human. Firefly and Almost Human were both done incredible disservices when their episodes were aired out of order. Moonlight was just a couple years too early. At least we still have Alex O'Loughlin on Hawaii Five-0!
Clearly, Robin Hood made the mistake of taking a sword to a spoon fight.
Does Shemar Moore of "Criminal Minds" and "The Young and the Restless" count?
The Reagans are a great TV family - it seems that so many TV families these days are pure dysfunction, but they actually support each other and work through their issues.
The Doctor's apparent antipathy towards soldiers strikes me as rather hypocritical at best. One of his longstanding friends, Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. Profession? Soldier. The Doctor's daughter Jenny? Soldier. Even Captain Jack Harkness can be considered a soldier. And the Doctor himself during the Time War? Soldier. Cold, Doctor, very cold.
I'll just have to wait for it to come out on DVD, I suppose. Though I'll probably be stuck waiting for someone to give it to me for my birthday, which is in about 350-odd days... ;-)
I guess we'll agree to disagree on this particular topic! Changing course, I do find it interesting how the various incarnations have different opinions on regeneration - In "The End of Time", Ten grimly compared regeneration to death: "Some new man goes sauntering away, and I'm dead." In this episode, we have Twelve reminding Clara that he's the same person who just phoned her from Trenzalore, standing right in front of her in Glasgow. They aren't two different people at all, but the same Doctor.
Did anyone else feel that BBCA's commercial breaks seemed oddly placed? It's like, we're in the middle of the scene, and suddenly they break for a commercial. It was rather distracting, actually, and made me wonder what I was missing that they likely chopped out for the American cut of the episode. I don't know if they actually did cut anything out for the BBCA version, but it felt like they might have.
I, too, enjoyed the expansion of Jenny and her relationship with Vastra. If I have one complaint (it's a minor one, admittedly), it's that we know very little to nothing about Jenny *outside* of her relationship with Vastra. Yes, it's a very important relationship, one that brings Jenny into the Doctor's orbit, but who is she otherwise? Frankly, we know more about Strax than we do Jenny. On the other hand, maybe it's good to leave a little mystery to a character. And I agree that there were a lot of great lines in this episode. "These are attack eyebrows!" My sister and I laughed over that one - she has been enamored over Peter Capaldi's eyebrows since they first appeared in "The Day of the Doctor"!
I agree - Jenna Coleman's departure is still in the realm of rumor, albeit a (very) widely repeated one. Moffat's a sneaky one, and may have started the rumor himself just to mess with people. This rumor may turn out to be true, but I'll hedge my bets until then and shove this one into the "maybe" file.
