Spoilers:

I'm glad that they were just red herrings, because I would've been severely disappointed if it did turn out to be another 'ganger. It'll be interesting to see what the Doctor does now that he's stepping back into the shadows.

Maybe there will be a genuine thread towards the Doctor over these specials or next season? Matt Smith's Doctor is practically omnipotent. Anyone else feel that it's also different in terms of tone due to the change in cinematography?

Well, the 2012 season isn't going to really be a season. They're saving alot of their budget so they can hold it over for 2013, which will be the show's 50th anniversary.

After the Christmas special, we won't see any new Doctor Who until Autumn 2012.

It wouldn't have been "another" 'ganger, though, it would be the same one. There's actually dialogue in the episode where he melts where the Doctor tells him that he could survive it if his theories about (scientific mumbo jumbo) are correct. And the Doctor flat-out asks the 'ganger Doctor about being invited to his death. Which I thought was a huge clue, but I guess it was a red herring. And I suppose I should have expected that, since Moffat wouldn't reveal something like that right in the dialogue of a mid-season episode, but it was spoken so fast and no one that I know of noticed it or commented on it! Did any of you notice it?

What do you mean? It looks like Moffat is going for a multi-season mega arc with his tenure. Who knows how long this will go. We still don't know the who, how and why of the TARDIS blowing up at the end of season five!

The cinematography, the approach of Moffat and his directors, the writing, the acting, it all contributes to a different tone from the RTD/David Tennant years. And, yeah, the Matt Smith Doctor does seem omnipotent. Even when he was dying from River Song's poison kiss, he still seemed like he knew he'd survive. And the way he escapes the Pandorica makes him unbeatable.

Recently, Supernova was on and a group of friends from college went dressed as Doctor Who characters. One of them even managed to make Doctor Who's tumblr page in a picture, which can be seen here:

Dude as the 9th Doctor in the background's wearing my jacket, too.

My Top 20 Favorite Episodes, updated for the last season
1. Blink
2. Midnight
3. The Girl in the Fireplace
4. The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
5. The Doctor's Wife
6. 42
7. Utopia/The Sound of Drums/The Last of the Time Lords
8. The Eleventh Hour
9. Dalek
10. The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit
11. Human Nature/The Family of Blood
12. Silence in the Library/The Forest of the Dead
13. The Lodger
14. Turn Left
15. The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone
16. Father's Day
17. The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People
18. The Girl Who Waited
19. Planet of the Dead
20. The Next Doctor

The one problem I have with "The Girl Who Waited" though, was that Old!Amy was unspeakably furious for Rory leaving her for a few decades. You know, her husband that waited for her for two fucking millennia? Be a little patient in return you know? Still didn't stop Karen Gillan from being totally kickass in that episode though.

My problem with that episode is that, particularly given that this is the same season as The Doctor's Wife, the TARDIS seems downright sadistic. For what purpose did it bring them to that where and when? Perhaps to chase Rory away? And then the purpose of The God Complex seemed to be to chase Amy away.

I thought it was sub-par. A Christmas Carol was miles better.

Definitely was, but I still enjoyed the ending. Mind you, I'm a sucker for most adaptations of A Christmas Carol. Muppets for life.

Love this show, immensely re-watchable. Tenth doctor is my favorite, Ninth probably would be my favorite, I like his manic, passive aggressive personality better, but the 9th doctor suffered from shaking off the dust of the show. The episodes just aren't as good, but it's not because of him. Didn't like Matt Smith at first, but he's definitely grown on me. I like how at the beginning of the end for the 10th doctor he foreshadowed a more godlike personality in "The Water of Mars" and then Matt Smith ran with the 'madman with a box' persona rather than the clever doctor good-guy guy.
