Ugh, I’m still back on “Amy’s Choice”.

Better catch up. This one looks epic.

I need a British-American translation. Does this mean a finale of the whole series with no more seasons planned in the near future, or is this just the usual yearly (or even half-yearly) break?

Blink was good. The followup was dumb.

So is everyone forgetting about the Daleks invading Earth even though it sets the stage for The Waters of Mars.

No in british TV, each “season” is called a “series”. So this is “series 5”.

Their series are shorter than our seasons as well, and don’t always work on yearly boundaries.

Whew! That's a relief! I'm rooting for the series to stay on the air at least until I'm offered the opportunity to be the first redneck Doctor.

I agree. Blink was a classic, in part because of the time-travel part of the story. This latest one was borderline neh because they were just hanging around in the cave for so long. I am liking the new Doctor, though.

SERIES FINALLY??? I knew giving the job to a 26 year old kid was a bad idea... killed the series in just one season.

The British don't have "seasons". They have "Series".

THere will be more.

I did NOT like the “Amy’s Choice” episode. The villain was The Doctor? Come on. Stupid.

Ah thats the conceit behind season 5 - no one CAN remember - because of this mysterious crack in time that keeps appearing that is deleting people and events.

Time, apparently, can be rewritten. So I reckon the Time Lords will come back.

I thought it was really clever. The villain was the dark side of the Doctor - sometimes known as the Valeyard - appeared before I believe in “Trial of a Time Lord”.

The Valyard is an actual version of the Doctor, due to come into existence between his 12th and his final regeneration. The Dream Lord was just a mental projection of the dark side of this Doctor, so not exactly the same thing.

I do hope the Valyard shows up some day again, and the Black Guardian.
