OMFG! Screw the Day Of The Moon review, we might just have a new Timelord on the scene. Or an old one with a new face. You never know with these Gallifreyans.
The closing scenes of tonight’s Doctor Who episode showed the young girl (previously trapped in an astronaut’s suit) stumbling into an alleyway in New York City. A vagrant notices her, and she tells him she’s dying…but it’s alright, because I can do this…
At which point the girl’s hands start glowing a familiar golden colour, then her face. And then she bursts into a full-on regeneration as the episode ends.
WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS MEAN?
Here at Shout Towers, we’re completely boggled! Steven Moffat hosed us with mad notions about pregnancy and childbirth all the way through the episode. Let’s gather up what we know:
- Amy may or may not be pregnant. Even the TARDIS scanner didn’t seem to have a definitive answer when The Doctor secretly scanned her.
- Prior to this, Amy had been joking with The Doctor about being pregnant after travelling in the TARDIS for so long – her baby might have had a “Time head” or something. There was a subtext that the baby might have been conceived in the TARDIS with The Doctor, but I think this is a massive red herring. Probably.
- River had yet another interesting moment – after shooting up a bunch of Silents, she turns around and sees Rory, but asks if her old man had seen that. Because he wouldn’t be happy about it. But “old man” could be father or husband, depending on your point of view. It would play to a popular theory that River is Amy’s daughter, and Rory might be the ‘old man’.
- Er…let me rewatch the episode and see what else I can pull out of my hat.
So, where has Gallifrey Girl come from? Has the randy Doctor been off creating little Time Children, or is this a last survivor of Gallifrey? If it’s the last one, should we be trying to identify possible Time Lords who might have survived the Time War and made it to Earth?
My mind is blown…need your feedback folks!
