** Vastra is exaggerating for the sake of the RuleOfCool, but not by much: the Headless Monks and the Clerics killed ''each other'', but no one was killed in the actual battles between the Doctor's forces and the Silence's forces.


Added DiffLines:

** They're panicking because the Doctor is (seemingly) dying already, ahead of schedule. The Doctor survived in the end, but ''they'' thought that ''[[BeyondTheImpossible somehow]]'', the "Doctor's Death in Utah" fixed point in time had been overridden and time was changing, with Melody Pond's murder of the Doctor being displaced to 1938. If ''that'' changes, there's no telling the rest of River's history will go as planned; could be in the "new timeline" they think they're witnessing, River ''never goes'' to Stormcage in the first place.


Added DiffLines:

** The characters didn't get ''shrunk'', it's the Dollhouse that is BiggerOnTheInside (made so by [[RealityWarper George]] to serve as his inter-dimensional Azkaban). It's like the T.A.R.D.I.S., minus the ability to time-travel. Meaning it's not just scaled up from the inside, it has ''tons'' of rooms that couldn't possibly be there from the outside.

* When the Doctor first meets River in the alternate "5:02 PM" universe, why doesn't he immediately whisper into her ear, "look into my eyes, it's safe for you to shoot me"? Why continue with the charade that he's going to die and go through all the drama that follows, which must've been emotionally exhausting for everyone involved except the Doctor?

* Related to the previous question: just two episodes later, the Doctor casually reveals the [=TARDIS=] carries a cure for a supposedly incurable blood clot, but here he can't think of anything inside the [=TARDIS=] to help resuscitate Rory?

* The Silents' plan in this episode makes little sense, considering that "A Good Man Goes to War" establishes the Silence has the means for both time travel and interstellar travel... Apparently the Silents have manipulated the human race for thousands of years just so we would produce a space suit. Why would they waste so much time and effort, when they could simply travel to a more advanced planet to get a spacesuit there, or travel to Earth's future to do the same? This is especially baffling since the spacesuit is filled with alien technology, so apparently Earth tech ''wasn't'' enough for the Silents, and they had to go somewhere else anyway to get the other stuff. So what the heck was the point of being on Earth for millennia?

* Amy leaves Madame Kovarian to die at the hands of the Silence when they overload her eye-drive. This is all well and good, but why is it that everybody, including Tropers and the series itself, treat the character as dead? That scene took place in an alternative, collapsing universe that was undone by the end of the episode, so Madame Kovarian should still be alive!

**If a silence says it it'll have a more accurate result as they are the ones with the power. Plus would you be convinced convinced an entire species just because a stranger said so? Or would you be more convinced if the species themselves said to do it to them.

Added DiffLines:

* Why did the Doctor specifically need one of the Silence to say "You should kill us all"? The test run in TARDIS indicated that at least the Doctor giving a command when a person sees the Silence will be carried out. So why exactly couldn't he use just any picture of the Silence and add separate audio with the command on it? Now, I could accept explanations that it doesn't work just any random thing said and it worked with the Doctor because Time Lords are much more telepathic than humans and so on, but was any explanation like this established in the story itself?

***Keep in mind that these Silence are a renegade branch from the Priests. Both are the same race, it's just that one group has malevolent intentions in taking over the world and the other are a group genetically engineered to help people

Added DiffLines:

*** Amy's captors never bothered to copy over Amy's memories or mental processes into her ganger, because they never intended to have it operate except as the real Amy's remote-controlled avatar. It never had the chance or capacity to be independently conscious: from the moment it was activated to the moment the Doctor melted it, Amy was constantly linked into its head.


Added DiffLines:

** We don't know the exact circumstances under which Amy's abductors swapped her for a ganger. It's possible they'd observed and scanned Amy for a while ''before'' she got pregnant, having knowledge that she would become so in the near future. They prepped the ganger while waiting for her to conceive, then snatched the real Amy and left the ready-made duplicate in her place.
