Yes, I know, but how does that bring him back? That makes no sense whatsoever. Yes, okay, it's Doctor Who, sense isn't always a priority, but at least they made an effort, before Matt Smith, to explain the why/how of things that occured. Simply "she remembered him" is lazy writing.

*Cough* David Tennant being revived by Tea *Cough*

My friend Sophie is obsessed with David Tennant! (And therefore loves Doctor Who.)

The Tenth and Eleventh doctors are my favorite. I can't really pick a favorite between the two. Although one of my favorite episodes was Midnight. So, how long does the episode take to get on that site Jacen? The episode's called The Bells of Saint John.

1channel? Usually the day its released, or a day or two after.

Just watched the newest episode on 1channel, it was quite interesting.

The beginning screen with all the people in the television screens reminded me of the episode with The Wire, and the companion getting absorbed also reminded me of this.

Then we find out that this was also part of the Great Intelligence's handiwork, this sounds like a story arc for the rest of the season.

But the final scene where everyone was reverted back to factory settings and the boss turned out to be a little girl was funny.

Real men watched it on BBC America.

*SPOILERS*
I liked it. It did remind me of the Wire a bit. I wonder if the Great Intelligence is the Master.

@Jacen
She was not a little girl, just controlled for so long that when he let her go that was her mental state.

@daleks
That's not what he meant. She was under the control of the Great Intelligence so long, she hadn't been normal since she was a little kid. The Great Intelligence wiped everyone at the Shard's memory of the Great Intelligence and working there, so all the memories she had were of being a little girl. I assume the Great Intelligence killed her parents. Also, the Great Intelligence is not the Master. From the TARDIS wiki, the GI was around in an original DW episode:

In the universe before this one, Yog-Sothoth had a body that was a mass of tentacles and mouths. (PROSE: Millennial Rites) Like the other Old Ones, it may have lost its body when it ran from the Fendahl. (PROSE: White Darkness) Afterwards, the Intelligence constantly sought physical existence to replace being a shapeless, formless cloud hanging in space. (TV: The Web of Fear)

The Intelligence possessed several people as its main instruments, namely Padmasambhava (TV: The Abominable Snowmen), Staff Sgt. Arnold (TV: The Web of Fear), Edward Travers (HOMEVID: Downtime), and Walter Simeon (TV: The Snowmen). When not using a living being, it maintained a basic manifestation as a three-sided pyramid of control spheres (TV: The Abominable Snowmen) or an ivory pyramid. (HOMEVID: Downtime)

So it was a being from an earlier universe.
