MARK WATCHES DOCTOR WHOÂ HAS RETURNED! And oh, how I have missed the Ponds and the Doctor. In celebration of such an event, it only stands that we must hold a liveblog party in honor! So get your computers and commenting fingers read, because Doctor WhoÂ is back!
oh god six weeks and six new episodes. I AM SO EXCITED. Also: Dear episode, please do not be full of Nazi-wank, even though I am kinda iffy about this episode in the first place? OH GOD. Shall we?
This liveblog starts relative toÂ you. So if it is airing on your television, start liveblogging away in the comments. Same for if you happen to be watching it online by less-than-legal means. (Though I would just time it with another time zone so you can comment with other people!) We already do this withÂ FringeÂ and it works rather nicely. To avoid seeing spoilery comments regarding the episode from past livebloggers, I merely stay on the first page of comments and comment away, only going back after itâ€™s over in order to comment on what other people said.
Sound fine? Just make sureÂ not to post spoilers before this episode airs.
As was tradition earlier this year, the review for this episode will go up on Monday afternoon. OH GOD I AM SO EXCITED.
OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED 😀
Am I obsessing over this show too much? Maybe a little bit. Could be worse.
On the one hand, instant invocation of Godwin's Law. On the other, TARDIS EEEE.
So get your computers and commenting fingers read, because Doctor Who is back!
I don't know if I can do this before the episode airs. I read my commenting fingers, but I have a lot of ebooks on my computer (not to mention the internet) so I'm not sure if I can get the whole thing read by Who time. Am I still allowed to participate if I couldn't complete the required reading? 😉
Side note: Has anyone seen the prequel? It's non-spoilery and very good (well, horribly depressing, but still)! It's not really about the episode either, it's more of a "Meanwhile…" kind of thing.
It's here if anyone wants to watch (don't watch any of the videos on the side, there's trailers and stuff): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRqG64hDs4s
I had not seen that! Oh MY CREYS.
oh my godddddd ;____________;
I had seen it but seeing it again DOESN'T MAKE IT ANY EASIER.
I saw it when it was released, Matt and Karen still break my heart. Karen doesn't even appear on screen and Matt doesn't say a word but MY HEART. IT IS BROKEN!
Matt's face 🙁

OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SECOND .GIF VOLDEMORT BREAKING INTO DANCE
It's from A Very Potter Musical.
If you've haven't seen AVMP You totally need to watch it, like, right now. Start it while you wait for Who :D!
My family read the summary for this episode on the Beeb.
There was a general moment of silence that can be summed up perfectly by the word "wat".
But we'll still get really really excited about it, and mum won't understand our joy, and Rory will be late and then will run around closing all the curtains because if he doesn't it won't be atmospheric enough and dad will watch from the floor for some reason because he always does that and then Rory (Pond) will probably die at least once and I'll go "ROOOORY" and my brother will be put out because he shares his name with a racing car in a children's program and that one guy who always dies in Doctor Who.
Also with a king of Ireland but he tends to focus his attentions more on the racing car.
My sister's name is Rory, and I keep having these moments of cognitive dissonace whenever I express my passionate love of Rory (Pond).
MARKWATCHES I HAVE MISSED YOU :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
YOU GUYS, I AM SO EXCITE FOR THIS LIVEBLOG, NO LIE. I HAVE BEEN ACTUALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE EPISODE. THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE ALL OF YOU <333333333333333333
<s>CONSIDERING I NEVER LIVEBLOGGED THIS EPISODE, OOPS</s>
I am so excited for this that I blackmailed my boss into allowing me to watch it at work. (In that I will make an extremely annoying noise for the whole nightshift if he doesn't let me watch) I won't be a part of the liveblog though, so have fun everyone!
OH MY GOD! It's my first liveblog for Doctor Who! Excite!
LOL where are those gifs from?
They're from an awesome web series called The Visitor From The Future. EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH IT.
Time travel! Zombies! Pop culture references! Hot french guys with awesome haircuts!
[youtube 1wtGLc_Fvf0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wtGLc_Fvf0 youtube]
The first few videos don't have much of a plot but it gets really, really awesome from episode 5 onwards, FO REAL. And you can probably get through the whole thing in about an hour.
My preparedness level is officially at UN.
I was super bored a couple of weeks ago when I realised I had all the raw materials for an awesome arts and crafts project.
So, I made myself a TARDIS, FUCK YEAH, out of a shoebox, some blue paint and a TONNE of glue.
The only problem is that having it on my shelf makes me a little sad I don't have a real time machine 🙁
YOU ARE AN AMAZING PERSON
Why, thank you. I try, I do try :).
OH. WOW. I. WANT. TARDIS.
HI MARK! 😀
:O You get ALL THE WIN!

Have worked to keep spoiler-free and been counting down the days . . . I am sooo ready.
Will be watching about 6 hours behind the U.K. but plan on a pre-watch rush from checking out all you live bloggers in the U.K.
OMG YOU GUYS I CAN FINALLY UPLOAD MY FAVOURITE GIFS FOR YOU ALL AND HAVE THEM FINALLY BE BOTH SPOILER-FREE AND RELEVANT!!!!!!!

THAT LAST GIF IS FLAWLESS.
LOL IKR I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO POST IT EVER SINCE THE DAY AFTER THE ALMOST PEOPLE
I actually heard from a interview with Matt Smith that its supposed to be really good for a mid-season opener. I’m kinda iffy about this one too but I guess we’ll just have to see.However…I refuse to spoil anyone who doesn’t want to the trailer for this particular episode but I will say this. There are some parts that may be awesome.Like very,very,VERY awesome. That’s all I’m going to say 😉
Yeah maybe not I’ve haven’t seen it but my guess is we’ll get another Vampires in Venice,something with some plotholes and disposableness but ultimately gets saved by great dialogue and awesomeness y/y?
MWDW RETURNS, TRIUMPHANT.
<img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/2144aoy.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic">
Omg I am so ready for this, you don't even know.
Love the gif. 😀
omg i am going to start watching this show because every GIF i have seen from it is amazing.
Do it Mark. Doooooo it. You won't regret it.
DON'T DO IT, MARK.
Because the next series is not due until 20-freaking-12 and once you get through the first two series the withdrawal will kill you ;_;
Do itttt. It's lovely!
Miranda Hart is my spirit animal or something. FO REAL.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I STARTED WATCHING IT.
And it is even more amazing than the gifs.
It's a wierd show, like, the writing is really average and the jokes aren't very good, but Miranda's such a naturally hilarious person so it's fun to watch.
What show is this from?
I JUST started watching this show and IT'S SO AMAZING!!! I don't think I've ever laughed so hard
Welcome back Doctor, I've missed you. I really hope this is a good one, because the title alone makes me a bit suspicious. In the mean time, look at this:
Oh, gosh, between this and Miracle Day on Thursdays I think all my TV prayers have been answered.
100 minute countdown until Doctor Who!
I AM NOT PREPARED! MUST ORDER UNHEALTHY PIZZA! SCREW THE WAISTLINE!
90 minute countdown until Doctor Who!
Apparently I can't count. I blame the excitement!
OMG I can't watch until tomorrow because I have to wait for iTunes, but have fun with the liveblogs, everyone 😀
I FULLY EXPECT THIS TO BE AMAZING and I'm joining in the countdown anyway, what the heck.
65 minute countdown until Doctor Who!
Could everyone join in and help with the countdown? OK thanks!
ONE HOUR TO GO!
<img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/e00qvb.gif" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic">
An hour left! 😀
So excite! I can't watch this along with you guys I'm afraid…I seem to be cursed when it comes to liveblogs. But I might just liveblog to myself when I watch it on iPlayer and post my thoughts later. Have fun everyone!
<img src="http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh162/Claire-Zee-Wulf/HUG.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
OMG not long left! Currently rewatching A Good Man Goes To War to prepare (it's that or Total Wipeout…easy choice really).
Haha, I've been watching a lot of the British wipeout here (which is much better than the American one, in my opinion). HILARIOUS.
I'm stuck watching football. Liverpool is beating Bolton(?) 3 nil apparently.
20 MINUTES! <3
My eyes are stinging! QAQ
YOU GUYS I CAN'T OPEN MY EYES FOR MORE THAN THREE SECONDS AT A TIMW D:
HOW CAN I WATCH DW LKE THIS
DON'T BLINK. BLINK AND YOU'RE DEAD.
IT'S OKAY I CAN SEE NOW 😀
Where's that super-excited Tangled gif when you need it? I think someone posted it already…
I thought it wasn't on until ten past?
Oh hm, is it? I guess I'm not sure, I thought it was at 7 (I'm not actually in Britain, it's 9PM here). My bad.
It's cool, I was just making sure I didn't have the wrong time myself and miss that start.
🙁 I don't think I'm gonna be able to watch live/join in 🙁
Me neither. I feel your pain.
I secretly hope the Doctor will go back in time so he can bring Baby Hitler to the Evil Baby Orphanage. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about wins 100 nerdpoints.
I knew there MUST be a nerfighter around here! 😀 You, sir, are made entirely of awesome!
A MILLION POINTS FOR YOU AND YOUR NERDFIGHTER REFERENCE!
I should have edited that to say that you sir, have clearly not forgotten TBA.
*ahem* OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. That is all.
I have Pizza now! I am therefore ready for The Doctor!
<img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/dctxq9.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic">
AHAHAHA I almost snorted seltzer water
IIIIII AMMMMMMMMMM NOT PREPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARED
Five minutes!!! OMGYAY!
Last ad break 😀
OMGOMG SO IT BEGINS.
A MINUTE PLEASE END THE ADVERTS
OMG STARTING AAAAAH
Here we go!
BRING IT BITCH!
Yours sincerely, team TARDIS.
IT'S STARTING 9RGOPOGBHRKONKP
CAN'T LIVEBLOG TOO INTENSE
Are the Ponds making a crop circle? 😀
I love them too much for words!
Wahey a mini! Nice car Ponds!
are they making crop circles? my mother would be so excited
ok the ponds are REALLY FUCKING CALM ABOUT THIS
argh thought it was the back to the future car at first
Hello new character!
OI WATCH THE TARDIS! Yeah I don't like her already.
The Doctor's new coat on the other hand is rather nice.
…THE FUCK IS SHE?
TITLE DROP, I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE
What is going on?
uh what's going on?
ROFL Okay my headcanon that Jeff was at the wedding just offscreen just got a bump.
AMELIA! CAITLIN HAI! OMGBB RORY!
AWW LITTLE RORY.
Little Amelia, little Rory, little Mel! Bless.
OMIGOD BABY AMY AND RORY AND MEL
Okay, this is strange. Is she like a Doctor fangirl? This is so weird. I don't know is I like her. I think I might.
so far she's a LITTLE too similar to River
In hindsight this comment is completely hilarious. 🙂
bahaha I feel like Trelawney :')
I guessed immediately who she was for this very reason. 😉
Aw, Amy and Rory in denial.
Baby Rory = cutest thing ever
And weirdly like my brother Rory
Seriously add curly hair and HE IS MY BROTHER
I am freaked out by this ;-;
I'm not gay…!
Yes you are!!
Awww Ponds, before they were Ponds.
ROFL she thought he was gay.
wow Amy how sweet
AWESOME TRANSITION IS AWESOME
SHE SHOT THE TARDIS??? OKAY I DONT LIKE HER.
SHE SHOT THE TARDIS!!!! HELL NO!
SHE DID NOT JUST SHOOT SEXY! >8C
I hate it when they introduce new people we're supposed to like by antagonising the main characters.
SHE SHOT THE TARDIS?! Okay throw her out, NOW! If there's a black hole or other nasty space-thing handy I'd recommend that as her drop-off point!
Sweet baby Jesus
Making the props for this episode must have been weird as fuck
"SWASTIKAS, SWASTIKAS EVERYWHERE! FLAGS WITH SWASTIKAS ON, GUYS! pretty please you will get paid"
Considering the number of other TV show episodes, documentaries and other stuff that has involved Nazis there must be like a BBC storage room somewhere called Nazi props.
I bet it's right next to an Austen adaptations costume room.
We put on the play "A Bright Room Called Day," my junior year of high school. As properties manager, I had to make several swastika flags, and other Nazi propaganda. I kept hoping no one affiliated with the show would walk into the shop while I was making them, because I anticipated an awkward conversation.
The noises that android? are making are as creepy and disgusting as fuck.
What is going on?!?!
Okay totally lost now but LOVING IT.
This is all just really odd right now.
Mini people??!?! Whu-?
It's been ten minutes and I'm already confused. Damn you Moff!
is this like The Borrowers intensified by a million?
omg steampunk borrowers
this is the best ever
i loved the borrowers
can that lady be like grown up Arietty pretty plz
(<3 we are so cool for instantly comparing this to the Borrowers)
Hey, it's the TARDIS corridor from The Doctor's Wife!
This is weird and I love it.
SPACE SQUIDS??!! I'M IN LOVE
'you will experience a tingling sensation and death'
"You will experience a stinging sensation and then DEATH."
Well, that's nice.
OR NOT I TAKE IT BACK
Okay are people from the future killing past war criminals?
NICE ONE TEAM TARDIS!
So in wanting to kill Hitler, Mel actually saved his life?
YES RORY JUST PUNCHED HITLER AND TOLD HIM TO SHUT UP!
