I think it was a lower budget attempt at the original Shadow Proclamation scene RTD planned for 'The Stolen Earth' with loads of aliens and Alonso Frame. This would've included an adult adipose, four metres high! Here's the concept RTD drew for it:
... That's a lot of fat. Where do they get it all from, does anyone know? I'd hate to think of the Adipose performing stealth-liposuctions on other worlds not covered by the Proclamation.
Speaking of the Shadow Proclamation, I hope we'll see more of them in the coming season. It'd be interesting to see what they get up to that does not involve trying to herd cats or moving the Doctor into being the vanguard of a war fleet.
Speaking of which, what was everyone's interpretation of Rassilon's "weeping angels" comment (and the pose of the dissenters)? Did that mean that the weeping angels were really Time Lords...? I must admit it passed me by pretty quickly...
That's what I concluded.
I hope not. It'd be kind of sad. Besides, there's more than one species that can do tricks with temporal mechanics and such in the Whoniverse. Probably (hopefully) Rassilon was just making a comparison that bordered on the offensive; the Weeping Angels are rather predatory, whereas the two dissenters wanted to preserve life throughout the universe.
