Good job team :D

Enjoyed it.

But ...

... when all those Cybermen got pulled into the vortex due to the fact that they were covered in vortex stuff from having travelled between worlds, what about the Cybermen they'd been busy creating from the Torchwood staff on our Earth who hadn't?

They're still here.

Just thought I'd mention it.

That's the way of leaving the door open for another return - hey, those suits were expensive! Same with the Temporal shifting Dalek (BBC got the license from the Nation estate for 3 years you know).

Well, that's what I thought but I didn't want to say. My last prediction came far too true for comfort.

One thing that rankled though, are Daleks that much mightier than the Cybermen? I'm all for totally evil and nasty Daleks, and these were rotten to the core, but I wasn't happy to see them carving through Cybermen like they were cheese.

Though I did like the idea that while thousands of Cybermen don't worry them, one Doctor does.

'Fraid that's how it should be - daleks are an ancient civilisation with terrifyingly advanced tech...the cybermen, especially the ones from alt earth, are newborn, almost - they simply don't have the tech - give them a few millenia and maybe...

and Im still chewing the cud over this one..too many holes, methinks....

Well, don't pick at it then! Just enjoy.

Oh, and I've been on OG today - reckon I've seen a rebuttal for any hole you care to mention!

What do you make of The Bride then?

Although it seems the character's name is Donna (presumably Blitzen and Rudolph will also be in the cast) - I am henceforth christening her Bridezilla!
