So the whole Hitler angle to DOCTOR WHO's mid season opener was a bit of a red herring. The episode wasn't about Hitler at all, it was about River Song (again!) and her regeneration from Melody Pond to Alex Kingston. In fact, they don't even try to kill Hitler, but they end up saving his life. Then Hitler gets put into the cupboard by Rory and that's where he stays. If only we could ignore Hitler so easily just by having Rory put him in the cupboard.

Speaking of Rory, he's about the only one who did anything heroic in this episode, holding a gun on Hitler, riding a motorbike, punching out Nazis... good going, Rory!

So my question is this: What was it about "Fish fingers and custard" that made the Doctor change into a tuxedo while he was dying from the poison? What was the point of that? Mind you, I did like Matt Smith's longer coat he was sporting before donning the tuxedo. I approve of the long coat.

So, again, some answers but just as many new questions to ponder. I'm thinking Steven Moffatt should just develop a River Song spinoff series. Russell T. Davies had Torchwood and Sarah Jane, Steve could go nuts with River Song on her own and let Doctor Who be Doctor Who.

Anyway, I hope we get some answers to the many (many) questions that the series has posed before the season finale.

Six long coats out of 10.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

I'm just ready to be over with the whole river/amy/rory thing. Time for new companions.
