    As far as companions I would go with Rose.

    I really like Riversong, though wasn't a huge fan of the twist where she grew up with her parents (as Mels). I also liked Rory and Wilfred a lot.

    Least favorite was Donna, but I did like that she wasn't in love with the Doctor.

    I have to agree about Donna. Remember Perri? I always had a crush on her as well. Hey, I was a teenage boy, and she was...well endowed.

    Is River really a true "Companion" though?

    Not really in the historical sense, but close enough. I mean she did marry The Doctor.

    Yeah, I know.
    I want a sonic screwdriver! I bet the Doctor could root anything with his...

    Big Doctor Who fan. I've only seen the new series, but it's probably my favorite current show. I've watched it 3 or 4 times now. I need to figure out how to get my hands on some of the original series. Hopefully it will be better than the original Battlestar Galacitica :(

    It is. Significantly so....remember the effects and monster costumes are poo. The original really shines through in the writing and acting. I'd recommend finding some old Tom Baker episodes, that's how I started. Try YouTube, I know you can find episodes posted in segments.

    Does anyone know when Doctor Who is returning? I remember watching a few of the old episodes as a kid. I think the first Doctor I saw was Tom Baker. I had no idea about the Doctor's regeneration. So the next time I saw it there was a different Doctor and I was totally lost. Then when they started the new series, I understood how things worked. I really like the show.

    Can confirm Autumn return in the UK, though I don't know a definite date. "Christmas Special" will be mid season, which would mean late Autumn if they ran continuously up to Christmas, but I suspect they will start earlier and have a short break before the special.

    BBCA is rerunning Chris Eccleston episodes in the middle of the day.

    Got Rose, The End of the World, and The Unquiet Dead waiting, courtesy of old programming in my dvr. Score! :)

    I was never interested in that when it aired, and it wasn't until roughly 6 months ago that I moved in with my sweety and we watched the entire series (he has the boxed set also). I so fell in love with all of the characters, especially Londo Mollari!

    As for Doctor Who... huge fan since they renewed the series. I love Matt Smith, but omg I miss David Tennant (he's soooo hawt) and Rose Tyler like crazy. Those two were my favorite!
