I hope when we get a new companion that love is not a subplot in any shape or form.
Rose and Doctor loved eachother
Martha loved The Doctor
Donna was getting married
Amy loves Rory
You can tell a story about people without it involving romance.
The darkening title sequence could just be them changing it to make it look better against the colour of the logo, since it's been different for every episode this year.
The lights flickering is happening around Amy; her dressing room, her house, the room/town she's in in the American West.
I don't know if you guys are on the same train of though (unfortunately I don't have time to go back and read all the previous posts) but I'll reiterate my previous theory from a couple of weeks ago;
Amy had an 'image' of Angel Bob in her head.
Image was destroyed when the Angels passed through the cracks.
But everything that was consumed by the cracks was restored in The Big Bang by the Pandorica.
So the Angel in Amy's head came back too.
I think Moffat also said that the answer to 'how the Ponds leave' is in The Eleventh Hour; I might go back and watch that episode again to see if there are any flickery lights
The only lights I can think of are when the Doctor is trying to signal the Atraxi and burns out the sonic as well as setting off the car alarms and exploding the phone box light.
Thinking about it a bit more, I don't think the flashing lights would be the hint in The Eleventh Hour; the universe was reset to the morning of the Ponds' wedding; several months after The Eleventh Hour. In no time stream would the Angel in her head have been present at the time of the Eleventh Hour

The cubes sort of remind me of the Tardis distress-message-boxes.
Mainly because... they're cubes
The Doctor has been Matt Smith for a quarter of his life.
The constant changes in his age amuses me.
Anyone else thinking Captain Jack would do well with 11?

Okay, I found this for now:

All the surgery John had means Jack looks nothing like he did in his first series. But I'd like Jack to come back as a temp companion again. It adds a nice dynamic.
I'm gonna watch something from Series 1
ughhh I can't decided an episode. This series is that good.
Wish Chris didn't do one year. What a nob. Such a good Doctor as he's easily the most unique.
I never liked Christopher Eccleston as the doctor but it seems like most others do, Jack should definitely come back since he's a pretty interesting character.
Am I the only one who couldn't wait for Rory to die in the past few series but now wants to see more of Rory than Amy? Amy's gotten really boring to me.
I like how we're seeing more of rory's family life
he got kinda neglected in the previous series
Rory I still find interesting and real and makes me laugh. Amy I just tire of.
I hope series 8 goes back to the format of 1,2,3,4,5. A couple of episodes, two parter, couple more, two parter, couple more, two part finale.
This idea of a break and no two-part finales and now no two parters is annoying. I don't really like it as much.
The break is horrible too. I just want 13 weeks of fun adventures. Not 5, a game changer, then a few more.
I like that Rory has stayed on so long, the spat of female-only companions seemed a bit forced to me, allievated only by Captain Jack.
To everyone saying "the Doctor wouldn't shoot a gun".
It annoys me Tennant fangirls on Youtube and shit get pissy is The Doctor holds a gun when THe Tenth Doctor slaughtered an entire race of spider-like aliens and burned a mother alive and then drowned her children. Or when Nine destroyed Downing Street with a missile and slaughtered a family doing it
Looking at that, it makes me wonder why he has such an aversion to guns nowadays. Maybe he thinks guns are somewhat unsporting, in which case he'd probably be better off with some sort of folding crossbow or even a holographic rapier and shield "app" for his sonic screwdriver. (by hologram I mean the physical omni-tool kind of hologram). That way he'd have an actual weapon whilst still being against guns, a somewhat alright compromise between being a hypocritical pacifist and the old-school kind of Doctor who wouldn't hesitate to actively fight against an unreasoning threat, as opposed to just running.
If his screwdriver had the "holographic forcefield" app, it could be kind of a "bulletproof umbrella", and the holographic rapier app would probably be pretty awesome.
Sorry I'm distracted by how hilarious it is watching The Doctor snap a blokes neck and run off.
Yeah; it's just so casual yet amazing. It's just a snap of the neck and then he runs off like a boss before Sarah Jane can even remark on it.
Still, I think it'd be awesome if the sonic screwdriver got a "solid hologram projector" module added to it, even if it'd technically make the Doctor like some sort of time traveling Green Lantern. Speaking of which, I suspect someone might have wrote a Green Lantern/Doctor Who crossover fic; after all there's so much stuff like that on the internet.
Doctor didn't use guns because they don't work on what he goes up against. RTD decided it should be because of morals.
The whole "guns aren't that effective" thing makes a fair slice of sense pie; you can hardly shoot a big metal robot with a rifle. Russel's interpretation of him not liking guns just because was pretty RTDed if you follow me; if the Doctor said something like "Really fellas, guns? Where's the fun in those? At LEAST use a sword or a crossbow or something; those're much more sporting", then it'd at least have context and be sort of "fashionable", but nope; poorly-explained moral qualms it is from Russel T Davies.
I'm hoping Moffat makes those kinds of changes to the Doctor's character; if not through a terrible event that makes the 11th Doctor more inclined to use weapons (like if he could have prevented a close friend's death if he'd only chopped the bad guy's hand off with a sword), then as part of the 12th Doctor's quirky new personality.
Good ol' Brig. Always aware guns never work but always shoots the fuckers anyway.
Chap with wings. Five rounds rapid.
"Just for once I would like to meet an alien menace that isn't immune to bullets."
Yep, I remember the Five Rounds Rapid. Never know if it don't work until you try.
Episode 5 is apparently 50-minutes long, with a glimpse of Christmas post-credits.
I'm going to try to be really strict with myself about previews for The Angels take Manhatten.
