Or do they only move around in complete darkness? But then presumably they can't see each other, which must make for some painful collisions...no wonder all those statues looked a bit battered...

In fact, it's a wonder they ever evolved...maybe they come from another universe (before time, I think the Doctor said in "Blink"?) and this quantum locking business is just an unfortunate effect of being stuck in our universe...

(As for how they mate, assuming they do....!)
I had all these EXACT thoughts.

I was very surprised by the "evolved" line as I would also have assumed they were projections of super-dimensional beinga into our three dimensions.

But I have no problem with them having any powers necessary to tell a good story because I catagorise them as "magic" beings anyway. :D

Me too. This is the first episode since.... probably Turn Left, that I have watched three times. :D

Nor in Scotland either. Hope the Moff is taking somenames over this though.
I wished they stop with the end credits as well. No sooner has the show finished, they cram them into a box and loud voice over comes on. The BBC have no need to do this, we pay for their services, unlike ITV for example and they do not need to sell the next programme or get us to stop changing channels.
Nice idea, but I think that particular innovation is here to stay if American television is any indication.

There's now a grovelling apology on the BBC Complaints page about the banner. Over five thousand complaints...

Even the innocent-looking Lizo Mzimba must be incandescent with rage, encouraging the youth of today to bombard the Newsround website with their messages of pimply outrage. Where will it all end? I can see it now... thousands of feral, greasy-haired, wobbly-voiced, spotty teenage boys (and three girls) storming Television Centre and carrying off a screaming Graham Norton toward a raging bonfire. If he were dead John Craven would be spinning in his grave...

That makes sense. Maybe it was poetic licence....or the fact that even super-dimensional beings have to evolve at some point (or be created by creatures which evolved, or...)

Yes. In fact I think they need to be more magical, because they have such huge limitations as things stand that they really need to be almost godlike to compensate (but with a "scientific explanation" of course :D )

The stuff with images was a good step in the right direction, IMHO.

Yes the HD version did not have MR Norton, a lot of AVI files with DivX or Xvid iso Mpeg-4 files in them for download are often sourced from HD broadcasts. They give excellent picture quality as they maximise the codec viewing quality available.

shrinking and talking over credits is brainwrong too.

If it is such a good idea, why didn't the BBC do it for the previous 50 years?

Then the dreaded stay tuned, shrink the credits, blah blah over the top them comes on - I wouldnt be happy.

But it's acceptable, because the US or ItV do it?

The BBC are funded and do not need to lower them selves to this level.
That's exactly what I think, and there's plenty of time between programmes to advertise other ones, they don't need to show trailers in programmes or during the credits.

They keep saying that people will "switch off" during the credits,
but what they don't seem able to understand is that if a show has a great theme tune,
people LIKE hearing the title and closing music!

Doctor Who used to have a great theme tune... :cry:

This is soooooooo funny. When the animated Dalek came up during the closing moments of Total Wipeout I thought it was cute...........when it happened on Doctor Who I went mad. What was worse was the trailer for Blood, Sweat and Luxuries that BBC3 put on just before Confidential. I had just sat down to eat when someone vomited and then they showed some animal being cut up.
My next door neighbour mixed up her KY jelly with the superglue. I asked her how she managed that but her lips are sealed.

The thing is sticking a cartoon trailer over a game show doesnt ruin it. Sticking one over a key climax in a drama totally spoils the moment. Had it been a few minutes earlier I dont think there would have been that much fuss.

Opening and closing music and the titles/credits sequences bookend the viewing experience. Alas we are not treated like adults, or with any due respect whatsoever, by a channel that only wants us to 'stay tuned' for the next programme.

While I wouldn't enjoy this any more on ITV (or SKY, if I had it), I at least understand that their raison d'etre is to keep viewers watching for their adverts. The BBC has no such excuse.

The BBC does have an excuse. In order to justify their licence fee they need to keep people watching and NOT switching over to ITV
