    The first episode of the new season has just finished up in the UK (and airs in a few hours in the US), so I guess this is the place to talk about it, if you want. Here's a synopsis of the first ep:

    The Impossible Astronaut: TARDIS blue envelopes, containing a position, date and time direct The Doctor, River Song, Amy and Rory to meet in Utah in the 1960s. They make a trip to the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. This episode will feature the 'Silence'.

    What did everyone think?

    It's... awesome. I can't really put it into words, but that episode is defnitely a good one. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens.

    Spoiler:
    I'm pretty sure the little girl is one of those aliens in disguise - where River and Rory are looks just like the TARDIS from The Lodger which had the shape-shifting alien that tried to make "matches". Still, it's interesting to know that the Doctor knows when River is going to die and River knows when the Doctor's going to die.

    I didn't watch it yet! I didn't even know it aired. I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, though. <3

    I'll be watching it very shortly and I'm currently too excited for my very own well being. Season 6 will definitely be one of the best... probably even the greatest Doctor Who season ever.

    Watched the latest episode a few hours ago and I was pretty satisfied. Crazy plot that promises all kinds of twists. Gonna be a lot of fun. The only down side is that I'm watching, and have been watching, seasons 5 and 6 with two friends who feel like it's really disappointing while I'm enjoying it completely.

    Spoiler:
    So who's in the spacesuit? Is it River like we're supposed to assume because we've heard how she's in prison for killing someone and she knows the Doctor's future? Do we get to find out in the next episode or not until the end of the season? Also, the whole pregnancy thing was sooo obvious.

    First episode was good, but will The Doctor ever get the fez he asked for?

    It was a good episode although it seemed like everything moved pretty slowly until the last few minutes.

    I just watched it! And must I say...

    Spoiler:
    This season's gonna be a blast. At first I thought the girl in the suit was Amy's future daughter or something. I really can't wait until the next episode. <3 Also, monsters that make you forget as soon as you face away? No thank you.

      I thought it was epic yet slightly boring
      Spoiler:
      The aliens looked kinda creepy and I didn't understand why the doctor was 1100 odds years old when i know him to be 908 but then i understood, gonna be good though

        It was awesome.
        I should probably elaborate...
        Not sure whether I prefer the idea of opening with a double parter yet, but it definitely allows for a greater story. Still trying to get my head around who is in the suit when it kills future-doctor and how they will avert that without causing a paradox.
        As for Amy's pregnancy, I'm still not sure whether the stomach-aches that she and River have been experiencing due to The Silence mean she really is or not and if she is, whether its a normal pregnancy.
        Too. Many. Questions.

        Definitely set up to be a great series.

          I've got a blog review coming up slightly later, but on the whole I liked it without loving it. I liked River and Rory but not Amy or Nixon, if that makes any sense. It also felt like there was slightly too much set-up and not enough action... but hopefully the next episode will deal with these concerns. Looks good, at least, from the previews!

          I think the fact that Amy shot the girl in the spacesuit is why it kills the Doctor.

          If you want to spoil yourself, just head over to the Doctor Who facebook page to see all the spoiler pics. I know that the BBC had some spoiler pics up before part 1 aired. :x

            Lol, shows how far Australia is behind because it finished 15 minutes ago over here.

            But yeah, it was pretty good. Lol how the doctor makes Rory's codename "The Nose".

              I'm so happy this thread has received the response it has. It warms my heart, it does! Anyhoo, here's the synopsis for the next episode, due to air in the UK in just under half an hour:

              Day of the Moon: The FBI are looking for Amy, Rory and River Song. The world has been occupied by the Silence and they can trust no one. The Doctor is trapped.

              I know I'm in the minority on this one, but I hope this one is significantly better than the première. Well, I live in hope!

                Oh, Doctor Who. Who think I might like it?

                In this year's return of the bow tie, I enjoyed the opener thoroughly. It wasn't great though. The pacing was just okay, and a number of the plot devices Moffat is using are starting to become a bit overused. Besides that, I loved it. The cliffhanger was ruined by the trailer for the next one though.

                I expect The Day of the Moon to be considerably better though. While the first one was very good, it felt like it was more leading up to a great 2nd episode than trying to be one on its own.

                  Screw every other moment of that episode for minute, let's talk about mini-Pond here.
                  So she's Amy's daughter, but gained regeneration powers from exposure to the time vortex in utero? I need to see the rest of this NOW.
                  I really want to see where the series takes this story arc to get to the point it was at in Ep 1.

                  In other news, I liked the way they defeated the Silents(ence?) by using their hypnosis against them.
                  Also, it's about time we got an episode with pirates/old world sailors in it.
                  I actually can't think of anything to say about this episode not related to mini-Pond's regeneration

                  I just realised what your avatar is, Rob.

                  It was a good episode and tied up the loose ends of the last episode nicely. This is already shaping up to become a pretty interesting series.

                  I'm a bit bored of the subtle hints toward something throughout the series though, 'Bad Wolf', 'Torchwood, 'Vote Saxon', 'The general appearances of Rose', 'Cracks in the wall', 'The silence' etc. Stop it!

                  ^ Heh, I guess it does get a bit interesting. Although this time ithe silence was mentioned though both series 5 and 6. :3

                  Spoiler:
                  Is it just me or is that Girl, Amy and the Doctors child...? Or is it what Rob said? xD

                    THAT's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

                    Sooooooo much better than last week's. All the stuff I didn't like - whiny Amy, on the nose dialogue, Matt Smith's kookiness up to 11 - was just gone and in its place was just a cracking episode of Doctor Who. In parts creepy, in other parts exciting, with a cliffhanger even more shocking that the last one. Bee-you-tiful!

                      This season is off to a good start. The new episode was awesome. My favorite character has to be Rory or the Doctor.

                      This episode was amazing. I really cannot wait to find out more about:
                      Spoiler:
                      the girl who regenerated at the end. Maybe we'll find out in the last episode of the series? We're supposed to find out who River is this series. Maybe they're related?

                        Did you guys know Elizabeth Sladen, who portrayed Sarah Jane Smith, died on April 19, 2011? I read the Doctor Who people are making something special in honor of her...

                        Oh and as you may already know, the day after she died, a new season began...

                        the girl who regenerated at the end. Maybe we'll find out in the last episode of the series? We're supposed to find out who River is this series. Maybe they're related?
                        Looks like you need to re-watch the episode to know who the little girl is. :P

                        I have to say that part 2 was definitely much better than part 1 and the next episode looks great from the sneak peak trailer.

                        About to watch it now~ =) Reading everyone's posts here (except for spoilers), I am EXCITED. Have a funny feeling it's going to leave me wow'd. Doctor Who usually does that.
