A couple of random observations on the Eleventh Hour

Looking at a few reactions around the 'net, I seem to be in the minority in liking the new theme tune arrangement. It's not perfect - I was put off for a second or two by its not being quite as instantly recognizable as many previous arrangements. But I like that it retains the drive and energy of the other post-2005 arrangements without being quite so orchestral. To me, the Doctor Who theme should always sound weird and alien, and orchestras just don't say "weird and alien" to me.


I found myself musing this morning over when the events of "The Eleventh Hour" take place. If, we assume, for the sake of argument, that Amy's final departure with the Doctor is from our present in 2010, then all of the stuff with Prisoner Zero happened in 2008, then conceivably those events could have been taking place at the same time as "Smith and Jones" (which unless I've goofed up my chronology, is set about a year after its broadcast date). Which would mean that when the Doctor takes his revamped TARDIS on a test flight to the moon, his previous incarnation is on the moon dealing with another fugitive alien prisoner being chased by some not-very-bright space police. I like this idea.

On the other hand, I didn't actually spot any obvious cues to the time of events: no calendars, no newspapers, no "Vote Saxon" posters, or Atmos stickers on cars. Did anybody spot anything that I might have missed?
