lol.. I just mean in general. I don't care if people agree with you or not on this specific case. I don't, and I'm OK with that.

The scene in which this happens contributes almost nothing to the story. All it really does is set up future events. We are given no explanation as to why young River went to New York upon leaving Florida. Does anyone honestly believe that the fact that Amy and Rory spend the rest of their lives in a New York of the past is pure coincidence?
River went to NYC in 1970 to escape the Silence, and that's pretty much it.
Other than that, she wrote that book in NYC with the afterword contributed by Amy, so apparently the older River went back to visit later in Amy's life so The Doctor could know they lived a happy existence together and he shouldn't worry.

Seeing as we have seen Rassilon almost come through the Time-Lock from Gallifrey, The Doctor visiting Skaro (which was also supposedly Time-Locked, and/or destroyed), and Rose Tyler return briefly from Pete's World (an alternate earth) - I don't imagine we've seen the absolute last of Amy and Rory either.

Deexan and his wacky antics.

Has anyone seen this? http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Lim...rds=doctor+who

What do you guys think? Worth it or no? I don't own any of the DVDs/BRs yet, so that's why I think it's a decent deal, with a few additional perks.

Not sure about the art cards, I'd probably end up tossing them, but at about $5 something a disc plus a sonic screwdriver - not bad.

I'd do it, but I have already started getting the digital downloads, and always have access to them - plus I can get an 11th Doctor's Screwdriver (to go with my 10th doctor screwdriver) at think geek (I think that's the site)

I've been holding off on purchasing Doctor WHo for two things. One, they have to get cheaper, two, the first 4 seasons need to be rereleased in blu-ray.

Coincedentally, just today I received Season 5 on blu-ray in the mail. It's the first thing from this show that I've owned. It was $20, somehow.

Even if they do eventually release the "first" four seasons of Doctor Who on bluray, it won't have any effect on the picture quality. They were shot in SD. They didn't start shooting in HD until season five.

I've never seen Doctor Who on Blu-Ray. How's the quality? I ask because S5 was more cinematic looking than the previous seasons, and now with Blu-Ray, I'm wondering if it has that documentary-like feel to it or not?

Ah, that's disapointing. Maybe I should get them.

...and now I know why Season 5 and on had a more cinematic feel to them.

Still old movies look better on Bluray quality... It should be the same for TV Shows if they upconvert to Bluray as well!

They'd be better, but it makes my waiting more futile.

Old movies were shot on film, which captures images in HD. Once the studio converts the film to digital, it can be seen in HD at home. Old TV shows can only be converted to HD if they were shot on film. The new Doctor Who was shot on video, which can't be converted to HD. A bluray player will upscale the quality of SD images on DVD, however. The improvement isn't full HD of course, but its pretty good. That improvement is coming from the player though, not the disk format.

Most of the Third Doctor episodes were shot on film, and could theoretically be converted. This would unfortunately be a terrible idea, since they were never intended to be seen in HD. All of the strings and whatnot on the practical FX which were virtually invisible on the low quality TVs of the time would be painfully obvious in HD.

I guess I have yet to really look for the difference in bluray - my laptop has the capability. but after a 50" plasma screen TV, clarity is pretty much there.

I second. I also hear we'll be exploring the TARDIS more than ever before in the coming episodes. So that's awesome.
