  1. Hi guys, good stuff as ever!

    I did love Gwen's American accent, and how she played it over the top to make up for how bad the accent was, and gets away with it by saying 'I'm mortified'.

    I was wondering too when the clearly alien force is going to show up – we got definite hints of an ancient force planning to change Earth. Another thing I'm wondering is with this thing happening 'now' are there going to be any references to it in the second half of Doctor Who – I don't think much of Children of Earth was mentioned in the main series either, besides the Doctor's forgiveness of Jack at the end of the Tennant series.

    One thing I have found grating is the fact that Rex keeps ignoring Jack's claims to be ancient and travelled in space, you'd think with all that goes on he'd be a bit more open to the suggestion of an immortal man and I find it annoying that Jack hasn't bothered to correct him yet – it was good as a running gag, but it's wearing a bit thin.

    Keep up the good work!
