Tonights advertising spot snark goes to Earth Care toilet paper. I doubt that all that many people who see that ad will ever actually get the joke; the expression "Does a bear shit in the woods?" is not at all a common saying in New Zealand.
Daleks as Churchill's secret weapon? This is so absurd that I suspect a lot of the story will be taken up in explaining how.
I'm surprised none of the 1940s characters mention Amy's miniskirt. This is the 1940s, after all.
Khaki Daleks with Union Jacks on them? Weirder and weirder.
TO-WIN-THE-WAR!!! ... Uh oh.
"Amy. Tell him." "Tell him?" "About the Daleks." "What about the Daleks?"
This is actually more intriguing than why Churchill's joined up with the Daleks in the first place. Why does Amy not remember the Daleks from The Stolen Earth?
"If Hitler invaded Hell, I would give a favourable reference to the Devil!"
... Here the Doctor is in danger as ending up as part of a self fulfilling prophecy. Slamming a Dalek multiple times with a wrench of some description is not a good survival trait.
... The scientist is an android. That was unexpected.
Leaving Amy with Churchill while you go off to find out what the Daleks are up to? Whatever happened to not going wandering without the other one?
TARDIS self destruct mechanism? Looks a hell of a lot like a Shrewsbury biscuit to me.
A-NEW-DA-LEK-PA-RA-DIGM? No, it's the iDaleks. Someone on Skaro owes Steve Jobs a decent wodge of cash for that update.
"Bracewell... it's time to think big!" Funny, I thought you were supposed to be Winston Churchill, not Robert Muldoon...
Actually, Churchill just doesn't look right. He's got too many chins and doesn't look old enough.
"This is the end for you. The final end." ... Yeah, and how often have we heard that one before?
Hmmm... the Daleks look like they managed to bamboozle the Doctor awfully easy in this episode. Couldn't he have just TARDIS'd back to London, grabbed the Unexploded Bracewell and TARDIS's him somewhere out of the range of anywhere much?
Otherwise... it looks like the crack in time in Amy's wall might be the background thread to this year's story.
