Doctor Who

The Angels Take Manhattan - S7-E6

Question: At the end of the episode River and The Doctor talk: River: "So. Rory and Amy, then." Doctor: "Yes. I know, I know." River: "I'm just saying. They're going to get terribly bored hanging round here all day." What are they talking about?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: I think they meant getting bored of hanging around in the TARDIS and traveling through time and space every day.

Hide - S7-E11

Question: In this episode the Doctor says 'Metebelis three' different to how Sarah-Jane in 'The wedding of Sarah Jane Smith' (The Sarah Jane Adventures spin-off) says 'Metebelis three'. (she says it like 'Metabeelis'), so which is correct?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: The Matt Smith pronunciation in this episode seems to be the outlier. Metebelis 3 was first mentioned and shown in the Jon Pertwee stories "The Green Death" and "Planet of the Spiders". In those stories, and in Sarah Jane Adventures it was pronounced 'Meh-teh-beel-is'.

The Rings of Akhaten - S7-E9

Question: In Season 7 Episode 10 (and others) it's said that the TARDIS has a sort of "universal translator", even after the TARDIS leaves the submarine, they can understand and speak Russian. How come in this episode, they can't understand the aliens, for the most part, as they come out as a bunch of grunts, even though the TARDIS is in the area?

Leah Novak

Chosen answer: The only one that grunts is Dor'een, the alien trying to sell the moped. The reason for this could be the same reason why the TARDIS does not translate baby, horse or tree, to the others. A plot device just to show off the Doctor's intelligence.

The Angels Take Manhattan - S7-E6

Question: In this episode, River meets the doctor again. Where is this in her timeline?

Shadow5

Chosen answer: Somewhere after "The Wedding of River Song," but before "Silence in the Library" and "The Name of the Doctor."

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.

Asylum of the Daleks - S7-E2

Question: How do they not hear that Oswin Oswald is a Dalek? She can't simply project her real voice when she's a Dalek can she?

Culwych

Chosen answer: Given that we hear her voice throughout the episode over loudspeakers within the asylum complex, it seems fairly clear that, when not speaking directly through the Dalek shell speakers, she does indeed sound like her original self.

Season 7 generally

Question: If Amelia and Rory 'died' in 2012 (Angels Take Manhattan) How come the Doctor had dinner with them in 2013? He 'died' to them in 2011 (The Impossible Astronaut) And, in "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe" he said he was gone 2 years. 2011+2 = 2013. But they 'died' in 2012.

Shadow5

Chosen answer: Angels Take Manhattan takes place in Amy and Rory's personal timelines after they experience the events of The Doctor's visits. When the Angels take someone, they consume all of that person's potential temporal energy after that point, so they'd already had those experiences with The Doctor before being taken.

Quotes

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
