I started watching when Tom Baker was the Doctor in the 80s sometime. It was on PBS here in the states, I watched up until Baker's tenure ended. Shortly after that it conflicted with ST:TNG and my parents liked that more than The Doctor.

My favorite companion always has and always will be Miss Sarah Jane Smith (currently my desktop wallpaper made by an artist right after Liz' death) followed by K-9 and the other tin dog Micky.

The reason why it is so hard to find all of the episodes is because they were destroyed. As new episodes are available it is because fans have come forth with them on VHS and other media. Much of the library was lost many years ago.

I use a defunct Doctor Who Go Theme. Tried to make a BACKside theme akin to Jerry's Greenmachine but blue to match the Go Theme, but it never worked right.

Don't worry, I just finished Iron Man, then I have one request to knock out, then Dr. Who it is! I'm going to make it CM7 format for maximum compatibility. I'll make a CM9 variant later.

Watched part 2 of the Evolution of the Daleks episode tonight.

As the lift (elevator) stopped, the Doctor said, "First floor, perfumery."

Complete tribute to Are You Being Served?

Loving it!

I lied about the theme. It is CM9. If you're interested, it's at digitalhouseoftreats.com.

I thought I would share this. I know this is not exactly the Tardis but I thought it was close enough. Here is a case of a blue police box that I will be getting for my GS3 soon.

I noticed that as well. I wouldn't mind a Doctor replacement, honestly.

After this season and then the next.

I really enjoy Matt Smith (far more than I thought I would after Tennant) but after this past epic story line I think he is going to be playing catch-up all season (although from the look of the teasers I may be wrong) and will be welcoming the new Doctor.

I believe there is a new companion for the Christmas special. Those don't usually last more than the episode.

Yep. It will be nice to see a different dynamic going on. The Matt Smith Doctor + Amy/Rory is good, but time for a change, imo.

I liked the 3 person team. We'd not really seen that in the new series (save the little while we had #10 + Rose & Micky/Ricky).

Rory had kind of been Kenny. It felt like he was getting killed in every other episode....

Only 32 hours until the new series starts.

We have a large gaming (pen & paper) and historical re-enactment club and every Saturday night is spent watching Doctor Who.

I just saw this comment on another blog -

Quote:
It has nothing to do with the fact Donna was perhaps 45 years old and acted like some whiny little teenager, a bitchy little shrew, and constantly complained and sulked and stamped her feet and threw tantrums about every. little. thing.



She was not only one of the least likable characters I've ever seen on Doctor Who, but one of the least likable characters I've seen in any medium, ever. I HATE Donna Noble.
A bit extreme in that second paragraph, but not by much, for me.

There are times I hated Donna Noble and there were times I loved her. I always loved her grandfather however.

And there were some great Ood + Donna episodes.

I think one big thing with her was she was very crass, something that very few, if any companions are.

Liked her gramps a lot.

I think we got skunked on a few teasers leading up to tonight. Don't want to get into spoilers for those needing a few days to catch up (weekend, dvr, you know).

I really enjoyed tonight's episode. Did anyone else play the Dalek Bingo?

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/29605000/dalek-bingo-rev2.pdf

Was really surprised at the turn out we had for tonight's episode, usually a core group of 7 of us with a rotating 3 or 4, but never more than 12 at a time. We had 23 people show up for tonight's episode.

Only 6 days 19 hours 29 minutes until Doctor Who.

Default The two types of Dr Who

The difference between the classic Dr Who and the modern reboot is that the new Dr Who episodes are usually stand-alone stories, whereas the classic series were serial stories told over several episodes.

The classic series therefore were much scarier, utilizing the cliff-hanger at the end of every episode, and were quite terrifying and memorable for children as a consequence. The final image of a Dalek trapping the Doctor against a wall and screaming “EXTERMINATE!” would leave a child shuddering in terror as the closing titles began. It truly was the stuff of nightmares, and the stereotypical concept of a child watching Dr Who from behind a sofa was certainly based on a real shared experience.

The modern Doctor, on the other hand, is far more sentimental. The stories often centre around characters and the poignancy of time travel and grief and loss and missed and found opportunities for love and affection and saving people we care about, often through sacrifice.

I like both formats.

I never would have found myself crying at the old Dr Who, but stories like Father’s Day (2005) are very moving. In the newer series, the acting and appeal of the Doctor’s companions and their relationship with the Doctor are far more important. My favourite companion, for this reason, has to be Rose.

But I do miss the terror of the classic series and their pervasive atmosphere of dread. Doctor Who FTW!

Just a thought, but maybe anything relating to last nights episode should go in [hide] tags.

Mine didn't until I put the quote in a separate set of hide tags from my text.

[HIDE][QUOTE] doesn't seem to work with TT.
