Bit cheesy but kinda cool. At least it's something new! Something to fill the gap between now and August.

I don't really understand how the Weeping Angel came into the equation and dunno why the Olympic athlete wasn't surprised that the TARDIS was bigger on the inside. Also, where the Thal was Rory?

But... eh... It was good I guess - like I said, at least it's something new! Razz

Your comments are basically the reason I couldn't even get through 3 minutes of this without skipping forward. I'm surprised this is the one that was chosen to be filmed--the other choices for the story must have been really bad.

They are, but remember when they had it last year...it was better than this, right? Not just throwing in random things you'd like to see in a DW episode.

They need to get Scary to write a mini-episode. I'm sure it'd rock!

True!!! And I think the Confidential one last year had older students writing.

Scary, you should've asked whether we prefer this to that other Olympics-related episode...if I had to choose between this and "Fear Her"...I'd go with the kids. Razz

"Fear Her" wasn't that bad so much as it wasn't so great. I was kinda glad to see an episode that had an alien that didn't kill anybody, but did have a very interesting way of incapacitating people.

I think they did as well as the Moff man when he writes episodes and storys! Not much of a plot, moves along very quickly, dose not make much sense and the Dr. saves the day with his sonic. These kids captured the essence of the new Doctor Who wonderfully well, no wonder it was chosen.

Ha! Thanks, Jared! I would certainly not throw in random things, that's for sure. As for a storyline itself I would have no clue what to write, really. I'd probably want McGann in there or Rory as the lead character, I'd be too picky for their likings. Razz

Good point, KCooper, it was much better last year. It's a shame really... I was looking forward to this when I CGren123 told me there would be a new [mini] episode.

I don't think I've ever agreed with you more.

Do we think all of these kids were even born when "Fear Her" originally aired? I still have to go with their episode over that one because it's much, much shorter.

Spoiler:
 

As a BBC Olympics/"Doctor Who" cross promotion, the spot works perfectly. As anything else...well, I suspect you've got a lot of kid writers over there frustrated over losing this one, Scary.

True. But don't even get me started over the Olympics. Sick of hearing about it and still trying to think of how the Thal we're affording it when we're supposedly in austerity.

They just announced that Matt Smith is going to carry the torch in Cardiff, too.

The only thing that will get me happy about the Olympics is if Tennant carries the torch. If he doesn't then all of time and space will collapse since the timeline will have been damaged. What a Face

I am glad he got the honor to do that. Wink Plus you forgot he does have a new Oympic film coming out called Bert And Dixie. Now with another name. Smile
