American comedian "Larry the Cable Guy" has a catchphrase- "Get 'er done." Doesn't mean anything, and is frankly pretty stupid. But his fans go APE when they hear it.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Oh, now I get you! :D

Is Torchwood shown in the US as well as Doctor Who?

Yeah, but I think the offset is a bit different.

Offset: SciFi channel shows Doctor Who about two weeks after BBC shows it in Britain. It is offset by about two weeks.

I don't know what the offset for Torchwood is, but I think it's more than two weeks.

So, what did everyone think of The Sontaran Stratagem?

I'm really going to have to give it a 9.57/10!

It was actually an awesome episode :D I wasn't expecting what ATMOS was, although when they revealed it in the beginning of the episode I kinda formed very close theories about it.

Sontaran Stratagem - 9/10

Really good episode, especially with how everything went with the return of Martha Jones. :D

Following the broadcast of the 2005 series, executive producer Russell T. Davies explained that the real life United Nations were no longer happy to be associated with the fictional organisation, and the UN's full name could not now be used. However, the "UNIT" and "UN" abbreviations can be used, as long as it is not explained what the letters stand for. In 2008, he announced that the organisation's name has been changed to the Unified Intelligence Taskforce. This new name was first mentioned on-screen in "The Sontaran Stratagem".

Why are the real UN that worried!? :lol:

Here's the UNIT site. :D

The Sontaran Stratagem: 9/10, as usual.

It was rather fast moving, I'm not sure whether I liked that or not, but Martha coming back (and the Sontarans coming back of course) sort of made up for it. The cloning was a very nice idea, as well. Part of my dislike for the episode was most probably caused by not being able to hear it, so I'll re-watch it today and I'll re-review it.

Ooh, I just had a rather nice theory!

Hidden Content:
In the episode "School Reunion" in series two, Sarah-Jane said to Rose "Find me... if you need to, one day. Find me.". Well, since there was a parallel Pete and Jackie Tyler, maybe there was another Sarah-Jane Smith! This could explain how Rose came back in the first episode; maybe S-J helped her! As Russell T. Davies said, they've been building up to certain things in series for since the first series...

I am now extremely proud of myself. :D

@Rubrica: But...

Hidden Content:
In the other universe, the Doctor didn't seem to exist. So Sarah Jane would've just been another person, with no knowledge of anything - including Rose Tyler and the Doctor - that happened in this universe (or, rather, the established Whoniverse).

David: But:

Hidden Content:
1. There may have been another Doctor, he just might not have been on Earth at that time.

2. Since, as Mickey put it "everything's the same, but a little bit different", then there is a chance Sarah-Jane may still understand when Rose explained it all to her, and may have been able to help.

I understand your point, however.

But, if #2 is true,

Hidden Content:
it doesn't matter how much Sarah Jane understands; if she doesn't know the Doctor, she doesn't have the resources to help.

I grant you that #1 is possible, though.

Absolutely possible. I agree with that.

Could also be a combination of the two. :-)

Well, I'm in for thinking that "a" Doctor/Rose escaping from the parallel world factor might exist in the parallel world. I mean, think Torchwood (I don't see why this whole discussion is in spoiler tags, but ok):

Hidden Content:
"Parallel Earth, parallel Torchwood" (From the episode Doomsday). Now why was the Torchwood Institute installed in the first place? To protect themselves from alien intervention (Primarily from the Doctor).

Speaking of Torchwood, I hear that there's going to be a radio series over the summer:

Team Torchwood is slated to make an appearance on Radio 4 this summer. The 45-minute show, airing as Radio 4's Afternoon Play... will feature the voices of John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd and Freema Agyeman. Recorded in March, the story will be transmitted on Radio 4 as part of a day's programming dedicated to the CERN project, expected to air in June or July. According to an interview in Torchwood Magazine...Martha calls the team while investigating strange goings-on at the CERN nuclear facility in Switzerland, leading to Torchwood's very first international adventure!

Hidden Content:
For all we know, Sarah Jane may have existed or not or possibly as a different person. After all, Rose came out as a female dog in the parallel universe. Although as worldnewser said about the fact that Torchwood was established after what happened with Queen Victoria and her encounter with the Doctor and a werewolf.

Spoilers/hints obtained from Digital Spy of as to what will happen in tonight's episode.

Hidden Content:
Can Wilf escape from the car? Will The Doctor suss out the Martha clone? Is General Staal going to track down Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson for a Young Ones reunion? Of course, we're not going to give the game away on those fronts. But we will dish up a few tasty spoilers about what's blowing around in 'The Poison Sky' - a decent episode that doesn't quite capitalise on the premise. If only Graeme Harper could have been behind the camera. Ah yes - there are two fake spoiler red herrings this week!

Donna's mother Sylvia wields an axe.

A jellyfish-like Rutan army makes an appearance (via a Sontaran flashback).

The Sontarans steal the Tardis.

UNIT prepare to launch a nuclear strike.

Donna kills a Sontaran via the probic vent and booms out "back of the neck!"

The Valiant is put to good use by Colonel Mace.

The current whereabouts (and official title) of Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart are revealed.

Donna punches the real Martha in the face - believing her to be the clone.

Luke has devised a mating programme for his genius recruits.

The Doctor puts on a gas mask to combat the poisonous sky and squeals "are you my mummy?"

So, what do you think about "The Poison Sky"? I thought it was brilliant :D

I seriously have to give it a 9.9/10 (as close as I can come to perfect :D )

Just to protect people from those who didn't see the episode, I'll put what I liked about the ep in spoiler tags.

Hidden Content:
The return of the Valiant was pretty cool. The Brig was mentioned (I wish he'd show up again..although I think hes too old now) As well as the gas masks and "Are you my mummy?" XD I liked how the atmosphere ignited and all (kinda reminded me of "End of the World") The Rose cameo was also very unexpected..I almost missed it! Was she trying to communicate with the Doctor? The way the door just shut and the TARDIS going off by itself was so foreboding

Sontar-ha :P Anyone notice how much the Doctor loves to hammer things with that mallet?

Ooh, I loved this episode! Just brilliant! Also:

Hidden Content:
YAY! The hand's bubbling! I mean, sure, I knew from the first episode that the Doctor's daughter would be in this series, but still! YAY!

Hidden Content:
Good point, whilst watching, it was strange how the Doctor's hand was getting a lot of coverage.

And as for the Doctor's daughter, I think she maybe a "fake" . . .

Hidden Content:
She could be, although when the hand bubbles there's Time-Lordy stuff going on. Also, the TARDIS was sort of drawn to her. But it's still a possibility.

Hidden Content:
Once again - good point. From the spoiler I read, it went along the lines that the creature(s) steals the Doctor's DNA to make her thus biologically she could pass as a timelord.

This spoiler is getting me confused. :?
