    That's actually a very cool explanation (if true). I just hope it's not a permanent fashion choice. :blink:

    I'm wondering if the outfit is basically the initial outfit but likely she'll bounce around through 3 or 4 "looks" from adventure to adventure. For example, Capaldi's initial look was all 3rd Doctor-y but then he's in a t-shirt and hoodie a lot so...

    Jodie Whitaker's logo, and what the title animation will likely resemble.

    I like it.
    All the other modern ones are from inside the time-stream.
    Here, seen from outside, the Tardis penetrating time looks like high-speed video of a bullet going through ballistics gel.

    11 once said "time travel is damage, it's like a tear in the fabric of reality," but they never really followed up on that. :async:

    Well shit... just found out that Amazon Prime has Doctor Who available for streaming. I'm excited, I've been wanting to watch the show over again.

    The revival, most of the original bores the hell out of me.

    Looks good, although I'd love a post-regeneration episode to be just an episode. Especially this one.

    There's been too many takes on Eccleston's "ooh, look at my ears!" and one of the best ways to defuse the "ooh, the Doctor is female!" is to simply get on with it. Show, don't tell.

    I've been binge-watching Capaldi Who lately (well, to be honest, binge-watching Capaldi :wub:). Noticed some things I hadn't noticed last time. Should I start a separate thread or keep my observations here?

    BTW, does everyone know there's a transcript site? www.chakoteya.com If I'm the last one to discover this, being a n00b to the franchise and all, I apologize.

    I'm happy with observations here.

    Didn't know about the transcript site but tardiswikia is pretty good for quotes, facts and continuity (ha!) checks too.

    All righty, then. Not sure whether or not to call these Easter eggs, but starting with "Into the Dalek": "Resistance is futile" and a throwaway line about a "mind meld."

    More to follow... :)

    I'm cool with keeping stuff here.

    I can't keep up with all the Star Wars threads here anyway...

    I wouldn't call them Easter Eggs so much as intentional shout-outs from Moffatt to US fans and other sci-fi geeks (and he knows how much some British fans HATE Americanisms creeping in to the show... and loves tweaking said fans).

    Okay, then, these are not Americanisms: "Robot of Sherwood": throwaway lines about the Peasants' Revolt and "the opiate of the masses" and, for those of us who've seen Becket a few hundred times (and supposedly a direct quote from Henry II): "Will no one rid me of this turbulent priestDoctor?"

    That one had me :rotfl:

    "In the Forest of the Night": The little critters that Maebh sees announce themselves as "We are here." Reminiscent of Torchwood, except these guys are friendlies? :unsure:

    The new sonic is interesting - it truly LOOKS alien, rather than the steampunk versions we've had since NuWho began. If it's reflective of the TARDIS interior, which previous sonics have been to an extent, then we could be in for an interesting new console room. It looks like a bit of the coral-based console room from Nine/Ten if anything.

    Or Dooku's lightsaber, but hey-ho.

    I think you’re looking at at least part of the Tardis right there in that image.
