I think there may be a way out for that. Remember something about time being pivotal in that particular era, and the fact that the ring that Rory had in the box hasn't disappeared. Given that a piece of the TARDIS was in the void, I think it all comes down to right when the Doctor regened and the TARDIS went boom. Something like that happening could very well fracture dimensions since the TARDIS is a dimension in herself...
Same here, yet he's still not surpassed Tennant or T. Baker. I agree about the new Sonic, but it's taken me a while to warm to the bits that stick out when he increases the power to it. I'm about over it though, because every Sonic Screwdriver the Doctor's ever had has looked a bit different from the last.
Yeah, sometimes adjusting to a new Doctor takes time. I've been doing it since the old Series and there were some times when by the time I'd totally got into the Doctor's latest persona, he'd regenerate again. LOL
Well... I'm starting to warm up more to Matt since he's beginning to become his own Doctor instead of trying to be like Tennant, but I agree, Tennant's my favorite Doctor along with Tom Baker from the 'classic' series.
