  3. Now I actually did really enjoyed the finale of this Doctor Who season Frank, but I can understand some confusion. It was supposed to be a “fixed” point in time that the Doctor would be killed by River Song…but she broke that by refusing to kill him & thus causing the big mish mash of time streams. But the fact in the end that it was really the “fake” (or Teselecta) Doctor killed “with the real Doctor” inside, which allowed for that alternate time trap to be undone & the Doctor to still live! Confusing…right? Here, this article I found (about the Teselecta) explains it very well—

    But in the end they did pretty much press a “reset” button for Dr Who…allowing everyone to believe him dead so he can now operate in the shadows as he said at the end! I think this can be interesting…

    Oh…& I found it funny how you brought up the thing about the kids of this “X-Factor” generation who were only born in the late 90’s or so and don’t appreciate the 70’s/80’s and all like us of the older generation. I was touching on just this same thing in my latest Gunkcast!

  4. I still want to clarify my overall point. I thumbs up that DW finale episode almost fully on the merits of Matt Smith’s brilliant acting. But when you try to understand everything “coherently” it may be a bit confusing & take some of the fun out of the wild rollercoaster ride which the epiosde was! I am very curious to see where the next series will go (although I do agree it’s about time for the Doctor to move on past the whole Amy/Rory/River Song thing).
