It's not too far off how they did it in the mid 70's... It could work.
Amy was a Kissogram, Rory was a Nurse, (both living in a small English village,) River was from the 51st century, Clara was a Barmaid in Victorian times, Entertainment Manager in the future and Nanny in the 21st century, later becoming a teacher. "hyper attractive middle-class professionals." Are you also saying Rose and Martha weren't as attractive as Amy or Clara?

Interestingly, in the leaked version (which I watched shortly after) Rusty was transmatted to the Dalek ship and destroyed it, using a combination between stock footage from Dalek (the self destruct sequence) and a green screen (obviously a stand in). I wonder why that was removed...?

Remembrance of the Daleks is probably the best of the best when it comes to making fans of the Classic series. You can't really go wrong with any 80's Dalek story, to be honest IMO.
The BBC really need to chose who they do exclusives with once and for all. We've had Wii/DS exclusives, PS3/Vita exclusives and now this. We're not made of money, as much as I'm sure we'd love to be, Auntie Beeb. :P

As pointed out in the episode, of course Tyrannosauruses were never that big in real life, (in reality they're no bigger than this one's head!) It looked to me like a sneaky reference to The Invasion of Dinosaurs and/or the novelisation of The Silurians, both of which feature unexplained oversized Dinosaurs. Also, to make a dramatic entrance at the beginning of a new season and a new Doctor.
Hartnell: Policeman walking in fog.
Davison: Oddly dressed bunch running from security at the Pharos Project.
Eccleston: Pan on a digital alarm clock.
Capaldi: DINOSAUR OVER VICTORIAN LONDON SPITS OUT TARDIS NEXT TO BIG BEN.
This is rivalled only by McCoy's entrance on the strangeness scale. I mean come on, TARDIS attacked by horrible laser beams uses its rainbow powers to crash land in a quarry, watched only by an oddly dressed yellow person in fancy dress who runs in a disturbing fashion, followed by a hairy, multi-eyed bat entering said TARDIS, prompting Sylvester McCoy to remove the wig of his Colin Baker costume with his magic wizard powers. "Leave the girl, it's the man I want."
Say what you want about Time and the Rani... It one heck of an entrance.

For Australian ratings Doctor Who has done insanely well, beaten only by X Factor, the various news and current affair programs that copy each other so much they heavily watermark their own stuff and a rubbish reality programme about people building houses.
Unfortunately that's what happens on a site that is such an untapped source of Whovians. I know how you feel!

I agree, I've never really liked the more moody Ace from the NAs, I'd have preferred it if Big Finish just didn't worry about making it in the style of the books to the letter, and instead worried about making a cracking 7th Doctor/Ace/Benny story.

I'm going to go ahead and say something controversial, but i believe it's the best one in the show's history, topping even Tomb of the Cybermen and my second favourite, the Tenth Planet.
I remember being a terrified 8 year old seeing all of those Cybermen waking up in the tunnels beneath the factory. That entire episode was scary, tense and exciting no matter how many times I watched it. The only episode I found scarier than AoS was The Empty Child, which I refused to watch until I was 9 or 10. For me, it's the ultimate Cyberman story, I was and still am incredibly frightened and fascinated by the general concept of them.
I found that and the clock a bit too akin to the more cartoony perception of time travel, with the clock bit looking lifted out of one of those old 60s cartoons in which that'd actually be their equivalent of the time vortex. And as for the theme arrangement, it's a little screechy, but it's far more traditional than the 2005-2013 ones.
