Tricked my way out of death. And patted myself on the back for my ingenuity. I know nothing. But, provided with meatier material from showrunner Steven Moffat, Smith might well have made a far stronger bid for the top spot out of the 13 men who have canonically played the role. Faced with a skeptical fandom after taking over for Tennant in , the thenyear-old, relatively unknown Smith turned in a series of winning performances in his first season, the fifth full slate of episodes since the series was revived in But he could also convey that his character was almost a millennium old.
Author's notes: This story is dedicated to gidget89 and penguinspy42, who are really bad influences on me. Actually, they're wonderful, and it was their talking about what we would love to see in the Christmas Special that prompted this story. Rory rolled his eyes at her over the Doctor's shoulder. I didn't say anything about the Doctor. He failed. Amy bit her lip, trying not to laugh as the Doctor rocked back on his heels, wandered over to the tree and shoved his hands in his pockets, pretending to look greatly interested in an ornament as he cast another not-so-discreet glance around the room.

The series 5 finale was a Kickstarter for several overarching stories that would foreshadow major conflicts yet to ensnare the Doctor. While the identity of the Silence was a major topic explored in series 6 , the question of why they wanted to blow the TARDIS up remained what the Eleventh Doctor called "a good question for another day" until the Christmas Special The Time of the Doctor answered it, while the mention of "an Egyptian goddess loose on the Orient Express in space " at the episode's end would later be picked up again in the series 8 episode Mummy on the Orient Express. The Big Bang had an impact upon Torchwood as well, allowing it to, at least in Russell T Davies ' mind, escape the confines of Cardiff. He said that closing the cracks in time also resulted in the closing of the Cardiff Rift.
