Thanks.

Everyone likes something.

If you donít like the show, others do, no need to spoil it.

Plenty of other good threads for you to enjoy here, clearly this is not one for you.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum Aligburg

Man I can't believe this wonderful thread was going on right underneath my nose I didn't even realize it!!!!! I have got to start paying better attention lol. Everyone who knows me knows that I am a Doctor Who fanatic......fangirl lol. I had never seen it until the show started back up with Eccleston. Then I would watch Red Dwarf the Doctor Who. When I learned the Eccleston was leaving the show I was so sad because I really like him and to this day I still think he was Fanstasic!! However by David's 2nd or 3rd episode I was hooked on his Doctor in a big way. I still am. I bawled and bawled like a big baby in The End of Time. um, actually I still do, I watch it about once a month lol. I also watch Time Crash at least once a week...the children's charity skit they did where David Tennant's Doctor meets Peter Davison's Doctor...(his father in law which I see y'all already discussed ) I love that and it makes me smile. I have just never been able to get that devoted to Matt Smith's acting. I think he's a really nice guy when I see him on talk shows and on things like The Nerdist but on one hand we had Tennant's acting and when he was sad you saw it in his entire body, the way he walked and slumped and the same thing when he was excited and happy, it radiated off of him. Matt Smith's Doctor seems like a kid in a cady shop all the time, just laa dee da, nothing too serious here. I've started going back and watching the classics there are some of those early ones though that are lost to us forever. When they were running out of storage space they started refilming over some of the previous episodes and those were the only copies there were. I get a lot of flak about this but I only speak my true thoughts when talking about this show I love so dearly. I am not a fan of the Doctors Baker. Either one of them. Well Colin Baker was just a friggin joke, seriously. I'm not a Tom Baker fan either. Now I don't know if that's because of what I've read about him in his later years pre judging him or not, I just know he's down there on my list of Doctors. I liked Pertwee and Troughton much better than Baker. I think had McGann been given a decent script or even a spot in the series he would been great.

Now, I read a book a month or so ago...it was from 2007 called Dalek I Loved You by Nick Griffiths from England. It's a memoir of him growing up with the Doctor in his life and how much that meant to him, he eventually got a job as a reporter over there for the Radio Times. He has been lucky enough to interview almost every Doctor, and all the companions. David Tennant wrote the forward to that book. It's only a couple bucks on Kindle. I'm now reading the follow up to it where he went along and snapped pics at the different locations they filmed Doctor Who, it's call Who Goes There and it has a companion website with it that shows the pics and then has a google map to it and I think it's really cool to take your little orange man and go down street level and it's like you are there too I went to his website after reading the first book and left him a comment...he commented back to me and now we chat a few times a week on his site and we follow each other on twitter. I said yeah, that's my claim to faim. I'm friends with a man who knows David Tennant. lol

I know I just rattled on, I apologize, I get that way when discussing something I love so much. Plus no one around me shares my love of the Doctor and I don't get to talk like this much. lol. Oh, one more thing before I shut my gob...favorite companions...of course I will say Rose how could I not?? I happened to like Donna though, maybe because I'm a lot like that in I don't take any crap off anyone haha. I didn't really care for Martha. I loved Sarah Jane Smith and I know a lot of people call Captain Jack a companion but I call those that had a regular steady part a companion. I loved Captain Jack and I loved him in Torchwood, but I don't consider him a companion. Least favorite....Adric bahahahaha...yuk. Also even though I consider Blink my all time favorite Who episode ever, I prefer RTD writing over Moffat's. Um, isn't it funny how we all love Blink so much and yet the Doctor is barely even in it.

Thank you all so very very much for this thread and I love you all simply for your love of the Doctor. Next time I will try to not write a book

Write a book anytime, this is the place.

Welcome to the thread!

I'm going to disagree with some of your choices, but you've probably seen those.

Now that the season has ended it's almost time to discuss that arc without worrying about spoilers.

As someone who has never seen the show, but would like to....would it be best for me to start with the old series? Or would the more recent one be alright? I don't want to jump in, and watch something from the middle, and be incredibly lost like I was watching well....Lost

The BBC Wales Doctor Who is meant to be able to be watched and followed independent of the originals. So you will be fine to jump in with Eccleston (the 9th Doctor).

Most people always regard their first Doctor as their favorite and I would not recommend 9 as a first, he is a good Doctor but I've never thought he truly embodied really who Doctor Who is. I would suggest (if you can deal with 70s and 80s scripts and special effects) watching some of Tom Baker's 4th Doctor.

I have heard that many many times, your first Doctor is your favorite Doctor. That's not how it happened with me, although there will always be a soft place for Eccleston and he is one of my favorites. I always love revisiting his shows. Does anyone else here use the TSF Shell launcher?? You know how you always have your little icon bases to choose from on the themes? I had wanted to start a Doctor Who theme and put a TARDIS and Dalek maybe a K-9 as the icon bases...then I found out my brain cancer had come back and chemo is kicking my hiney...so maybe after I get through stomping it back into oblivion like i did 7.5 yrs ago I might see about that again.

Whoohoo! I didn't mean to ignore the last few days...I just got caught up in a book. I am the perpetual nerd. lol. Right now I'm using the LG Connect 4G with the BlackPlague ROM. I was using BrokenOut but there is a lot more developer interaction with BlackPlague. Playfulgod said he's working on CM10 for us but he is so busy with other projects as well as what he's doing for us I don't know how long it will be.

I saw this survey on Facebook the other day so I'll ask y'all the same question...do you like the series split like it is this time or prefer to have the 13 run week to week? ( I would prefer there to be a new show every single dang week!!) lol

If you're on Facebook and you don't know about this page I would like to share it with y'all. It's called Doctor Who and the Tardis by Craig Hurle . If you just mosey on over there and LIKE the page then you will get neat pics and info about the show, actors, writers and such a lot of times before anyone else does. I always know things before my dingdong brother. I've got a lot of my cool wallpapers from those posts. He has some neat videos on his page also.

This series is split because they're trying to put the 1/2 half of the series along with the start of the next series and the 2013 Christmas Special all together for the 50th anniversary and ...

Not sure if this should have been in the show or not, it is pretty powerful as is.

Don't watch if you haven't seen "The Angels Take Manhattan".

I like to change wallpapers when I change roms, last time I wondered what the time vortex looked like from the outside, and Google was my friend so I found this...



I think Raselon would be ok with it.

Which, speaking of weeping angels, clearly he created them in the episode where Tennant bought it, and I couldn't get over the eye contact with that one woman - was that the Doctor's momma?

And yes, flashlights and desk clocks do exist outside of spacetime.

Ok, it's official - the Christmas Special Doctor Who was not only best one ever, but finally, it looks like the Doctor is finally back. And the Tardis is finally right again!

It was a very good episode. Hoping to be able to watch again on my lunch tomorrow.

I was hoping for a more baker era TARDIS. But this one will suffice. Love the reading glasses.

Yeah, not the glacial sterility of the Baker Tardis, that is still my favorite, but... well, you know, and I want to avoid spoilers.

I'm getting the wife up to speed with the Doctor. We've been watching it on Netflix and we're up to Martha's second episode. I haven't seen any episodes since the Impossible Astronaut because we ditched cable in favor of Netflix. Does Hulu have newer episodes? I'm considering getting that too...

I don't have Huluplus, I just use the free version & it doesn't have Who at all. The episodes are pretty cheap on Amazon instant video only like $1.89 I think & then you own it forever. Only you can just watch it on Amazon instant video

Can't believe we're this far in to the season and no chatter!

OK, I'll bite

I thought last night's episode was a big step up from the previous week, and the best of this season so far. Was also nice to see Clara realising that this isn't a game, and being a lot less sure of herself. My congrats to Mr Gatiss

A few thoughts on the series so far. Although I won't go into details will still contain spoilers, so only unhide if you've seen the episodes.

Episode One:





Episode Two:





Episode Three:

Just a question, may have to answer under tags...

Remember the song that the professor got Clara to sing?

I anticipate a connection.

I grew up with Tom Baker and pretty much stopped watching it when Sylvester McCoy took on the mantle. I started again with the new series with Chris Ecclestone and David Tenant but after watching The Impossible Astronaut, I realised I don't like Matt Smith's portrayal at all. I've not watched any of them since then.

I've not liked a lot about Smith, but the alternative was no Doctor, so I've grown used to him, and there have been some very good episodes.

My first Doctor was Tom Baker as well. Didn't grow up with him, had to wait for it to hit our shores. Hated Pertwee for quite a while but eventually got to liking him.

BTW, I was ok with the second episode this season. I liked the character development.

I grew up with Tom Baker and fell in love with David Tennant but I think Matt Smith is my almost favorite (the scarf beats the bow tie).

Nothing beats a fez though. Fezes (sp?) are cool.

I have to agree with Hadron somewhat.

It took a bit for me to warm up to Matt Smith, but I do like him in the role. I like Clara as a companion, certainly much better than Donna (I never liked her...)

I wasn't impressed with this latest episode. I thought it was a snooze fest. I think I expected more from Gattis & the Ice Warriors

Ok, the old Doctor series is back on BBCA.

Nice discussion about K-9 this past weekend along with Tom Baker in The Pyramids of Mars.

This last week of the new series - ummmm. Uhhhhh. Ummmmm.... no.

I thought Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS was a lot of fun, a bit odd, but still fun. Very Indiana Jones feel about it.

I am enjoying the monthly specials on all the incarnations of the Doctor. I think they are some great introductions to the original run of the show for folks that have only experienced the new stuff.

As far as the latest episode, it was fun but the ending felt really cheap to me. In fact, seemed like a bit of a throwaway episode for the most part (as far as the series story arc). I guess I'm mostly ambivalent about it.

Last weeks episode was fantastic. I love the Victorian trio. Strax is the best.

Never really got into the Doctor before Eccleston. I liked him a lot. Then I really enjoyed Tennant. And I've grown to like Smith.

Rose is my favorite companion. Amy and Martha are next. Donna is last.

And I like the original theme from Tennant's series the best.

Haven't seen any of the latest series ... yet. I know I have some on DVR. Lost some too when the DVR had to be replaced sometime back. So I need to catch up on the current series.
