One thing that I thought of was... in the first episode, when we see her, I think we just see what she thinks she looks like. You know how sometimes the way we see ourselves in our mind's eye isn't representative of what we actually look like? It got me thinking about when Time Lords regen if they every particularly like a version of themselves the most and hold onto that image. So when she crashed landed on that planet she might not have looked like that at all (assuming she is the doctors daughter and stuff) and that really could have been a later version of her.
that was the family of blood, and it wasn't really ancient England, it was just before WW1. also in tennants last episode he visits the woman who is the grandchild of the women he fell in love with, and asks her if she was happy, she says yes, what about you? and he smiles and walks off.

can someone tell me, its probably obvious and i just forgot it/didn't see it, but why in asylum of the daleks, when they are talking why doesn't she sound like a dalek?

but i would love to see the time war. also, i think they will some how get around telling us his name, its always been a mysterious bit on the show, i dont thiknk they will reveal it. the doctor tells many stories about what he did in the Time war, we know he had/used "the moment"
In the radio transmissions she had he own voice because she still had her personality, however when face to face her mechanical body had the classic Dalek filter.
As for Restart the show has been on air for almost 50 years with a 12 year break. It has more episodes lost than most Sci-Fi Shows had. Only Star Trek comes close and that is because it counts TOS (79), TAS (22 ), TNG (178), DS9 (176 ), VOY (172 ), Ent (98 ), 10 movies, 1 reboot movie, and one reboot movie coming soon. Total Star Trek Episodes and Movies 737, Total Doctor Who Episodes 790 with 106 missing episodes because the BBC cleared out many of the early episodes during the early 70's. Oh and if we count spin off shows and movies,2 Dr Who Movies staring Peter Cushing as the Doctor, K-9 and Company 1 episode, Torchwood 41, The Sarah Jane Adventures 53 episodes + 1 short, and K9 26 for a total of 914 episodes and related films.
Star Trek has Rebooted because over the years the show forgot it's roots. And many long time Who fans which include Steven Moffit feel That Doctor Who has lost the Special Mystery that the Early show had. Also poorly written continuity during the 70's has made making the restarted series a bit of a pain for the producers.
So I just watched Let's Kill Hitler and I thought it was strange. Why did River have to save the doctor? Couldn't he just have regenerated? I thought he had a couple of regenerations left. Did I miss something in a previous episode or will it be explained in the future?

It was explained in the episode worprz.
as far as i know it was only speculated, i think it was briefly mentioned once an old episode, but nothing really set in stone. and some sources say 13 is the limit set by the timelords, so it no longer applies anyway.

also, with his regenerations, dont we still have the valeyard to go through?

if you look here it seems to be that it was stated there was 13incarnations, but it also may have just been a rule set by the time lords, and the rules may be broken, especially since they are not around anymore.
Plus who knows what River giving The Doctor all of her Regenerations did to the process as well.
note to all the UK peeps, Matt Smith will be on the Jonothan Ross show next week! so tune the fuck in!
also, Gandalf is on, so that's another reason
