The Name of the Doctor - S7-E15

Question: What were some the the old episodes Clara was seen helping the doctor in?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: We see clips from The Invasion of Time, The Five Doctors, Arc of Infinity and DragonFire.

Repo_Man

Question: When Lucky Day tripped and lost the race, was that actually an accident or was that part of the race being rigged? Like a fighter taking a fall.

Quantom X

Chosen answer: There is nothing that indicates the race was rigged. it was likely an accident.

MasterOfAll

Question: When Martin threw Will's phone out to sea in anger, was it just in anger about what happened? Or was it just an excuse to do so, like thinking his enemies would be tracking them via Will's phone?

Quantom X

Question: Throughout the film, are there a series of deliberate 'Back to the Future' references? I noticed two straight away - Daniel says 'If you put your mind to it anything is possible, you can do anything' which is repeated several times during BTTF. Also, when Daniel and Kumiko are at the dance, the song 'Earth Angel' can be heard. The song at the climax of the dance in BTTF. Are these deliberate, as BTTF was a year before this movie?

Professor Lazarus

Chosen answer: No it is not deliberate. what Daniel says is a common saying, and Earth Angel was a popular song. coincidence at best.

MasterOfAll

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: What is the song the kicks in when Tommy says, "Have you noticed how hot your sister has gotten?", and then plays on when Tommy and Oliver are driving around in the SLR?

Friso94

Chosen answer: "C'mon Doll" by My Goodness.

Question: While doing the kata, the only time Daniel moves his feet is when he turns during the kata. He never moves towards Barnes. At one point, Barnes tries to moves towards Daniel but stops when Daniel starts the kata. It is finally Barnes who moves towards Daniel, not the other way around. Would it be legal for Daniel to distract Barnes with kata in the middle of a tournament, as he's not moving towards Barnes at any time?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: Yes, it is legal. As long as a competitor is in motion the match continues. Had Daniel stayed in his upright "ready stance", he would have been dq'd for match delay.

Question: In the TGRI lab, when the Professor is disposing of the Ooze, he places it in a weird looking machine. It has a pyramid like structure with what appears to be a rock of some sort in the center. What is that machine and what is that rock? If it even is a rock?

00:23:05

Quantom X

Chosen answer: The machine dispose of the ooze. How exactly is not expressed in the film.

MasterOfAll

Question: The main character of the game is Griffin. You play as him in campaign mode. Yet he is not a playable character in multiplayer. His brother is, but not Griffin. Anybody know why?

Quantom X

Answer: Donnie Griffin was going to be the protagonist of the un-released sequel. Presumably making him the player character in the multiplayer to this game was a set-up for the sequel.

BaconIsMyBFF

Question: Why was Ali mad at Daniel at the mini golf course? The last time we saw them together was at the club where Daniel got embarrassed. But they were already planning to meet there. I have seen no explanation as to why she was mad at him.

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: Ali was upset with Daniel because he didn't allow her to explain why when he came to pick her up, he found her not only dancing with her ex-boyfriend but kissing him. He ran off after running into a waiter and everyone (Johnny included) laughed at him as he sat on the ground in a mostly white outfit covered in spaghetti sauce.

Question: I've always wondered, but what is the scene about at the beginning of the film before the titles? Is it just there to showcase the team or is there another reason?

Heather Benton Premium member

Chosen answer: It's an excuse to show off the team, as well as the reason they are already in Eastern Europe.

Question: Given that Sergeant Hulka was only the platoon's drill sergeant, that means his authority should have been done once they graduated from basic training. So why did he turn up in Germany and continue to give them orders?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: According to the movie's premise and plot, once they (the platoon) impressed the brass at graduation and was assigned to the Germany gig with the "EM-50", Sgt. Hulka would naturally be with them as he was their original commanding officer. Plus, it would be logical to suggest that he would personally assign himself the detail of overseeing his platoon as they were his to begin with.

Question: How would Aldrich Killian or Eric Savin know how to program or how to remotely control the Iron Patriot (War Machine armour) to deliver President Ellis to Killian at the impounded damaged oil tanker? Surely only the pilot or maybe JARVIS could control the armour?

StreetHAWK76

Chosen answer: This isn't the suit Rhodes took from Tony in Iron Man 2. It's a new suit, developed by AIM, Killian's company. That is why he was able to reprogram it to bring the president to him.

Question: When The Enterprise reaches Kronos, we see one of Krono's moons was half blown away long before the events of Into Darkness Take Place. In Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, one of Kronos' moons blows half away in an "incident." That incident takes place later on in the lives of the characters when they come close to retirement in the previous reality before it was altered. Are we to assume that either: A different Kronos moon blew long before Star Trek VI in a similar fashion, or that the change of events from the previous film had such a strong butterfly effect that the Kronos moon suffered an incident much sooner than it originally had?

aamovielover

Chosen answer: The explosion of the Moon Praxis in the original Universe was due to extensive over mining and energy production. In the first movie that took place in the alternate reality, an entire Klingon armada was destroyed by the Narada. It is logical to assume that the Klingons began to over-mine the moon in order to obtain the resources necessary to replace so many lost ships, causing the moon to explode several decades before it happened in the Prime timeline.

A Good Man Goes to War - S6-E8

Question: How did Lorna know Amy's daughter's real name in order to make the prayer leaf?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: It was written on the plastic bassinet. She could have seen it or asked at any time Amy was their prisoner.

Question: Why wasn't Johnny disqualified for his own "illegal contact to the knee" like Bobby was? We know the ref saw it happen because he gave Johnny a warning. Never made sense to me.

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: Johnny attacked an illegal area which the rules accept may happen accidentally and so they have provisions for warnings and such in light of that possibility, whereas Bobby performed an illegal technique which cannot happen accidentally, and therefore the rules call for immediate disqualification.

Phixius Premium member

New this month Answer: The answer makes no sense since Johnny caught the leg and purposely rams the elbow into the back of the knee. There was no accident about it. Even the ref acknowledged this.

Question: I don't understand the scene in the casino. She screams and the roulette ball hits her number. What happened here?

Loesjuh1985

Chosen answer: In the casino scene, Lola breaks the "rules" several times. She doesn't have enough money for a 100 mark chip, she defies the dress code, and the scream is a manifestation of her willpower overriding the laws of chance and probability itself to make the ball land on the number 20 twice in a row.

Question: Was the kidnapped official supposedly shot by the Mandarin a part of the whole extremis plot? I'm pretty sure Trevor didn't actually shoot him in the head for real but he's never mentioned again after his supposed killing.

Gillbillvolume1

Chosen answer: Most likely, to preserve the illusion to Trevor, his gun held blanks and he did not really kill anyone. However, the official would be too dangerous a witness to be left alive, so Killian would have his goons drag him out and execute him in secret after the taping.

Twotall

Question: OK I have a few questions about this. (1) Who blew up the car with Hannah? Was it Jim or Clare? (2) Ethan taunts Krieger because he has the real NOC list, but was it also because Ethan knew he was a traitor and wanted him to walk out? (3) At the end when Ethan is disguised as Phelps, he is wearing the same trenchcoat as the real Phelps (who then shows up). Is this because he knew Jim was onboard, or simply cause he knew how his old boss loved to dress? (4) And lastly after Clare is killed, Hunt acts devastated and goes after Jim in anger. Given that she was a traitor who was always on Jim's side (and might even have killed Hannah), why would Hunt feel this way at all?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: 1) Jim most likely did it when he emerged from the water (as seen in the flashbacks/Ethan's theory, but it's hard to be 100% certain). 2) Ethan was just fooling Krieger. He didn't know he was a traitor yet. 3) Ethan likely knew exactly what Jim was wearing, as he planned the whole thing all along. 4) He's upset because Jim just murdered his wife to escape, someone who until very recently Ethan still considered his friend. You can't just turn loyalty off like that.

LorgSkyegon

Question: When this came out on DVD, the box said it was uncut and uncensored. So why was all of the swearing censored?

Chosen answer: There are two versions on the disc. From the main menu you can go to a sub menu that allows you to choose which one you watch.
