Doctor Who Liveblog: S05E13 – The Big Bang, by Steven Moffat

I am liveblogging each episode of Doctor Who as I watch it. This is more or less a raw stream of consciousness list of things I am considering and wondering about as I watch. (Sometimes I add links later for reference, but otherwise it’s all exactly what I typed at the time.) In the interest of not spoiling anything for anyone I am putting all of it behind the jump.

This episode is the thirteenth episode of Season Five (or Thirty-One depending who you ask), called The Big Bang. BBC Page

(recap)
That silent bit at the end is creepy all over again.
1894 years later!?
???
Amy’s house!
So what’s wrong with Amy now if she never had her run-in with the Doctor?
No such things as stars?
What the WHAT!?
We never met Amy’s adults before.
Richard Dawkins. Hee!
Who was that then?
How does that brochure have a Dalek and such in it?
Who’s handwriting is that?
Who sent her there?
Who took her soda?
She stuck around and dodged them all. Good for her!
Nice boots. (;
Yup. Even in petrified form, Daleks are creepy.
She’s unlocking it just by touching it?
HOW???
At least she still meets the Doctor when she’s young.
Wait, what?
WHAT!?
1894 years ago…
Eek.
“So the universe ended. You missed that.”
I’m liking Rory more all the time.
That’s a ridiculous miracle I think…
Fez? Mop? What!?
So Rory got him out. OK.
“I’ve got a future, that’s nice.”
So Rory isn’t Rory?
Yup. I like Rory.
So we put Amy in the Pandorica?
The Nestenes?
Mostly dead? I’ve heard that before.
OMG!
Complicated. Heh. How is Amy gonna sort this?
Rory is heartbreaking and wonderful.
Oh Rory.
What the what!? How is it alive?
“Come along Ponds!” Hee!
!!!!
Oh good, it’s brought back to life.
Oh this is hurting my head a bit again.
Oh that’s him with the notes and the soda. HA!
My brain. Again. Hear it melting?
Where’s Amelia?
Restore? Thaaaaat’s not a…good sound…
At least it’s not the voice saying “Silence will fall.”
Can’t River shoot it with that obliterator thing?
Reboot the universe? Oh yeah!
Go big or go home. This is why I like the Doctor.
!!!!!!
Ooooh. River Song: Making Daleks beg since time immemorial.
History is…vanishing. Oh no.
Wow. He really does go big, doesn’t he?
How is he going to fly anything anywhere? He’s unconscious!
All the cracks will close? So no more Doctor? This isn’t ok with me either!
“He doesn’t really know me yet. Now he never will.” Tragic.
Why DID he take her with him?
Where was everyone? I wondered that then too but we never covered it.
That crack took her family? Oh no!
At least her Doctor is actually Raggedy now.
GOTCHA!?
Oh that’s not right or fair or anything. WTF?
Don’t text and drive, Doctor!
Geronimo? Hee!
My brain is a bit melty now.
I can buy a fez?
That’s Amy’s voice…
Space Florida?
At least the crack disappeared, that’s good right?
We’re back another episode. And that’s the one that didn’t have the crack! So does it now or not? (:
All the way back!
He stole the TARDIS?
So sad. I can’t type because I just keep watching him.
No more crack…
Stars!
!!
“Are you just saying yes because you’re scared of me?” Hee!
River!?
Why would River leave her book?
What now?
Please work. Oh Amy, I hope this works.
!!!!!
Good call, leaving the kissing to Rory.
Mister Pond. Hee!
Is she married? And married to whom?
Was he asking?
Goodbye!? Yeah, goodbye to their Earth, right?
HAHAH!
Nicely done Amy!
Goddess? Loose on the Orient Express? In SPACE!? Oh how I wish I got to see that.
