I just meant that like what happened to the old Star Trek franchise, when a lot of time passes in the real world it gets harder to keep the suspension of disbelief going on a younger and younger audience.
OK, I'm with you on Star Trek.
I also was pleasantly surprised, and thought they did a good job making it fresh but also throwing several bones to those of us who are fans of the original.
Here, however, I don't see a necessity for that kind of reboot. Doctor Who
kind of reboots itself all the time anyway... Maybe I'm not coming across the same fan base you are (despite being in the States and having several friends who've never seen any Classic Who
). ~shrug~ Let's just hope Moffat doesn't go that route.
As far as Amy being gone forever, I heard that she is signed for the next season (series).
I've tried not to find/read/pay attention to rumors and possible spoilers, though I did come across that one somewhere, too. I'm not assuming anything yet.
I'm still hoping against hope that this will signal the return of the Time Lords.
That would be totally schwa.
I think it's someone else, but I'm also keeping my fingers crossed that Moffat brings them back "for real" at some point.
Did anyone else notice that these are the alternate-reality Cybermen? When are the ones from the Whoniverse gonna show up?
~sigh~ I'm betting never. New design is too "cool" and "updated" for them to go back to the Mondan Cybermen. Which is a shame... I agree with Cleverest Name
- I'm kind of tired of them...
