I also didn't guess, but I did keep wondering why he was asking about milk for souffle and not eggs.

I think it looks quite fun. I'd love to have some variation on Samuel L. Jackson's line from Snakes on a Plane, but somehow I doubt that will happen.

Don't you need both?

maybe just realising one was missing enough for the purpose of this exercise. He wasn't actually giving a cookery lesson, so just wondering where one ingredient came from was enough.

Maybe this is the arc for the series...a recipe. So far we have eggs(terminate) and milk.

Because The Doctor had realised what had happened to Oswin, and knew mentioning eggs would trigger of terminally unfortunate word associations.

I sense a different story arc building, one timed for a payoff to coincide with the 50th Anniversary.

And this.

I can't decide whether to give this 3 or 4. Will wait until after Dinosaurs to see where we're going.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, though it needed more Daleks.

Didn't twig about Oswin and found the angst about childlessness wholly believable.

I do have to disagree with Dave about the treatment of Amy. She's always had a touch of selfishness about her, but in the context of a story where the nanocloud is converting her to a Dalek, having that streak pushed a bit more to the forefront works. Remember the line, "you subtract love and add anger." I think both Moffat's writing and Gillian's performance nicely underscored the way she was being affected.

You're suggesting Amy was being converted into a Dalek when she decided that the way to deal with infertility was divorce? Because that happened before the whole conversion thing, months before.

We're expected to believe this is the same Amy and Rory we saw last season - the Rory who waited for 2,000 years outside a box? The Amy who was prepared to kill herself and the Doctor because Rory had been killed in what might have been a dream? And her solution to a medical situation is to throw Rory out and divorce him? Really? Really? The Girl who Waited, the girl with the time travelling daughter and time lord for a son in law couldn't find a better solution than "Well, I might not be your ideal woman any more so I'm going to hurt you as much as I possibly can right now" ?

C'mon, Patrick. The emotional core of the Pond's story was contrived and out of character.

The Amy and Rory from Series 5 are quite far away now, though. In series 6, Amy lost her daughter, and we saw little enough effect on her in that series -- I was glad to at last get *some* recognition of that. Also, I think the "can't have children" thing isn't a reference to infertility, but to not wanting children after what happened to her on Demons Run.
