Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Trekkies Club Band
The best thing that ever happened was definitely during “The Message”. I think for some reason it wasn’t on the gag reel. It was possibly the best piece of acting I’ve ever seen, which is the three-sixty [360 degree camera rotation] that Tim [as director] did while everyone was listening to the farewell message from Tracey [played by Jonathon Woodward]. And Nathan is standing with Zoe, looking kind of stricken - this is his old friend - and the camera pans around to Kaylee - and Nathan’s sitting next to Kaylee, looking kind of stricken in another way. And he managed to duck under the camera and get to every single member of the cast and just look really sad [laughs]. And some of them just could not keep it together and some of them did. But I’ve got to tell you - it’s hard to describe. And then when it finally panned down to the body in the coffin, Nathan was lying in [Woodward’s] arms, looking stricken. It was unbelievable - not only hilarious, but technically proficient. He really put some thought into it. But that’s Nathan.

Well he was grieving five times as hard as the others.
“You know, for kids.”
We know Oswin was a Dalek…
And we assume she died…
But what if she didn’t? What if she lived and eventually went insane and became the Dalek Emperor? The one at the Game Station.
And then Rose Bad Wolfed her ass.
But because she was Rose…
This must be at least something along the lines of what Moffat has planned. It would all tie in perfectly with the rumoured Tennant/Piper return for the 50th anniversary special.
Update: I swear I hadn’t read this news before I wrote that.

Nerd³ Plays… Star Trek: The Awful Videogame
“Picard would not have put up with any of this shit”
It’s a clear sign that I’m a nerd who takes these things too seriously, but it really annoys me that the otherwise hilarious (and somewhat poignant) Thumbs & Ammo have included Star Trek and Batman images.
Neither of these characters are holding guns - Batman has a Batarang and Kirk has a phaser. But my complaint is deeper than that technicality: These characters themselves already reject guns. Batman uses fancy gadgets and fighting skills to defeat enemies who often are armed, and Star Trek characters use a weapon that is purely defensive (set to stun), except in extraordinary circumstances.
I’m not bothered by the Star Wars images featured. Fair play there.
