2. Eurovision isnt affecting Doctor Who as it has done for the past few series!
3. The Silurians will survive the story if rumours o their return in the finale are to be belived.
4. Rory may die in this episode or he will go through a time crack. Probibly the time crack.
5.From  Tardis Wiki no source: "The Doctor will look into a crack and see the TARDIS door sign on fire. The previous two rumours seem likely to come true, as a review for the episode mentioned the mysterious 'big bang' and the crack, and the possible death of a regular cast character."

The Adventures of The Twelfth Doctor

This is the Twelfth Doctor complete in his new costume! The Doctor is now 934 years old and he's dosent look a day over 70. When he regenerates he blacks out waking up in a elderly care home in Cardiff with alot of his memory missing. The new Doctor is smart, witty, slightly irritable but always thirsty for adventure. Just dont call him gramps!
Nancy Ledley works 9 to 5 at a Cardiff elderly care home rushing around for the old residents. But when she meets a enigmatic man who calls himself  The Doctor her mundane life of diets, TV and shopping changes to one of brilliant adventure and incredible creatures! Funny, caring and Welsh she's the perfect companion!

The  Adventure Begins.....soon

Amy's Choice BARB Ratings

 Final figures for Amy's Choice  reveal that it was watched by a good  7.55 million viewers.The episode was watched by 7.06 million on BBC One, and a  additional  0.49 million watched on BBC HD. The overnights for the episode were 6.2 million and you can see there is a moderate increase.I cant wait to see the BARB figures for The Hungry Earth!

The Hungry Earth Review **** (4 stars)

 Best bit: The nice Welsh community and of course The Silurains!
Worst bit: Meera Syal wasnt as good as I was expecting.
Best Character: The Doctor.I feel like Matt is The Doctor now.
Line of the episode: The Doctor: OI! DON'T DISS THE SONIC!

The Silurians are back! Saturday saw the return of the reptilian meanies in the first part of the two part adventure. I think this episode does a better job of setting up a proper story than The Time of Angels  did for the Weeping Angels two parter as we get a good look at the creatures and we know what they want but also not giving too much away like why have they captured the humans? Theres plenty of interseting tidbits too like why Amy and Rory have gone back in time to see themselves this must have some significance and wondering who will kill Alaya the Silurian.The Silurian desgin looks better than I first thought and you can see the detail gone into each prosthetic mask giving the actor/actress the chance to show facial features under all that rubber. Some have seen parallels with classic series episodes like Third Doctor Adventure Inferno which featured a drilling project and the another Third Doctor story which featured Silurains Doctor Who and the Silurians but I suppose its ok to draw inspiration from the past.As i mentioned above I have really warmed to the Eleventh  Doctor and his frantic speech is always a highlight "Oh look, a big mining thing. Oh, I love a big mining thing... see? Way better than Rio, Rio doesn't have a big mining thing." The guest cast were rather good especially the young boy Elliot played by Samuel Davies.I was expecting more from Meera Syal I mean shes alright but not exactly brilliant maybe she will have more to do in the next part. Overall a good first part but the next part will need to pick up the pace a bit for a thrilling adventure! Until next time Hwyl Fawr (When in Wales!)

Cold Blood Overnight Ratings

Overnight figures show that last nights episode The Hungry Earth was watched by 4.5 million viewers. 4.24 million tuned in on BBC One and 0.30 million watched on BBC HD.These arnet great viewing figures for Doctor Who and the lowest of the revived series so far but these are only overnight figures. The lowest viewing figures for a revived episode is 6.2 million which The Satan Pit got in 2006. The weather is most definately to blame as people of Britain flocked outside to enjoy the rare nice weather like they did  that day in 2006 when The Satan Pit was on. Final figures will be available next Monday.
