i agree completely with raggedy doctor. In my opinion steven moffat is losing touch with the new series, i thought series 5 was good but series 6 might as well have been called "the river song show" and the ending was predictable and un-imaginative. it does seem as well that the new series weakens the threat and impact that sontarans/cybermen and daleks should make and trivialises them. classic series rules forever and it would also be nice if people would stop going on about rory figures, he is a drip and a weak character.
I was told by Tracy @Co. Now she would if been given the info by Co. So not her fault if they changed their minds. However as Rory has been requested so much makes sence to bring him it before he leaves.
