Are you sure it's set before Demon's Run? Strax could have survived with a little brain damage, as evidenced by his desire to attack the moon.

I know I shouldn't have done, but I found Strax to be bloody hilarious, far more funny than it should have been. Maybe because it was just similar to all the human alien conspiracists.

I think that that's what Moffat must be aiming for, because I found it to be the best part of the prequel.

"I have declared war on the Moon."

I don't know why, but that was the best thing ever.

I hope we get a lot of Strax in the next episode - that would be fantastic.

Even better - the trio appears again in the third-to-last episode of the series.

I just found out David Tennant wants to be in the new Star Wars films. I strongly approve of this.

We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."

It might suck, but there are reasons to be optimistic. They've hired an Oscar winning writer and the guy who wrote The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

And if it does suck, at least Tennant acting in it would mean that at least one part of it would probably be good.

That could work, potentially, but I doubt they could fit the proper historical you need for Akhenaten in with the alien invasion thing.

It would be pretty awesome to have a nice bit of conflict between the monotheistic society of Akhenaten's reign and the old gods themselves, but there isn't enough time, and I'd rather Cross not louse up history.

It's a matter of timing.

It would take, what, 5 minutes of pre-plot exposition, probably 10 to establish what Egypt's like under Akhenaten, 5 minutes to show what he himself is like, 10 more of standard monster stuff, 10 to explain what the hell an Osirian is, and then 10 to 20 more to wrap the plot up satisfactorily? 50 to 60 minutes. That's assuming the episode doesn't have any sub-plots or other major characters. Too much.
