Anyone who still compares Matt Smith to Tennant by now have NEVER watched a Patrick Troughton adventure because Smith was eerily channeling him throughout. Smith certainly does not handle being the "Last Time Lord" like Tennant did.

Nice adventure with good pathos and a dash of George Lucas. Amy Pond has proved to be a solid companion.

I was a bit afraid about midway through this was gonna be "Long game" redux, but I quite liked how they confounded my expectations and came up with a fresh spin on it.

Matt Smith is an amazing Doctor. Can't believe how quickly he seems to have made the role his.

And next week is going to kick ass. Just is. :)

This season seems to be going for an Eccleston-like uninterrupted series of adventures, which I can't say I mind the slightest bit.

As for this episode, holy shit it was so good. I'll not mention anything specific out of respect for those of us who chose to wait for legitimate means to watch it, but it's definitely distinguishing itself from Davies' work on the series so far.

i am still annoyed what i consider a giant plot hole, but it was still a great episode and pretty adult in terms of subject matter.

and I always love when the Doctor is short-tempered with human behavior.

Very powerful, very emotional episode to build up to what should be an awesome finale. We're getting into some curious literary symbolism here: the "looking glass" hatch, the white rabbit Dharma logo, the white rabbit that Alex (Alice?)
