When the Doctor remembers what he saw when everyone except Rory were photographing the sun, the black car is already parked in front of the red one, but we only see it arrive in the next scene. Also the Doctor and Amy are not in in that shaky camera sequence even though their known location is visible. See more »
All I can say without giving any hints of spoilage is that we're in excellent hands with the new cast and production team. I think Matt Smith makes a delightful Doctor and to be honest, I was a bit wary of him before seeing this portrayal. There's everything a Doctor Who fan can hope for: warmth, humor, suspense, creativity, innovation and much more.
After seeing this first episode, I'm confident our family will be enthusiastic devotees of the new series.
Also, if you or anyone you know is as of yet unfamiliar with the full 47 year history of Doctor Who, this episode is a wonderful place to start!
