    Default Doctor Who

    Well then, we are almost halfway through the new series of Doctor Who, and what are everyone's thoughts? The most recent episode, 'Dalek' was quite good. *spoiler warning* The best parts had to be where the Dalek set off the sprinklers by blowing up the fire alarm, and then electrocuting all the guards to death, and earlier on in the episode, where the Dalek raises it's plunger thing and the scientist asks the Dalek, 'What ya gonna do, sucker me to death?' only for the Dalek to do precisely that and suck out his insides with the plunger of doom.

    I was wondering when a thread about the Doctor would appear. Well, it has. I saw the last episode "Dalek". It was alright, i knew she would set it free.

    Oh, that's a pretty good one from what I saw of it. Didn't see a lot though. Anyone know who the next Dr. Who is? The guy in the current series quit a while ago.

    nope, dont know.

    But they cant kill the daleks. There must be more somewhere in the universe? The most asked question about The Doctor was "are the Daleks in it?"

    I mean, we'll all miss the famous "exterminate" if they are killed off...

    It's the guy from that BBC3 drama, Casanova. I think.

    I guess this dates me, but I have to agree with a review that said it's good but it's not Doctor Who. A doctor who loves, who points guns at daleks, who lets flabs of skin die and shouts "Fantastic!" is not the real doctor. Another problem is the 45 minute constraint - you just can't develop a plausible, reasonably paced story within it (at least not without US-quality scriptwriters).

    However, it is fun - especially the Russell T Davies scripts that poke fun at the genre conventions - eg response to alien invasion: "we could always watch it on TV", cue hilarious sequence of fighting with baby for remote, trying to listen to the news over everyone else gossiping etc.

    I like it. The money and time spent on the scripts really shows. I agree Ecclestone is very different to the classic Doctor Whos (Doctors Who?), but lets face it we all think whoever was Doctor Who when we were nine is the best one. (Yes, that makes it Tom Baker for me as for so many others, but he WAS the best, deal with it.)

    There is a lot more in it for adults, the Dalek remarking, almost sadly, "You would make a good Dalek" after the Doctor has been ranting about how all Daleks must die was an excellent line. And for the first time ever I actually saw Daleks as creatures too, albeit ones that think they have to kill everyone else.

    I agree that the running around with guns (well, a gun, once, and then there was the missile in another episode come to think of it) runs the risk of changing the feel of the stories quite radically. After all if the Doctor is going to solve problems with violence then he just becomes a sort of time travelling Indiana Jones. But IMHO its being kept within bounds, just. Also all these hints of time wars etc have given him a much darker back story and i suppose its more of a piece with that.

    BTW its saturday at 7 on BBC 1 not sunday, I think its repeated on one of the digitial channels on sunday.

    Using that logic there is no best Doctor Who for me. The series ended when I was 8 so there you are.

    It is pretty good, but I am not getting the sense of dread that I used to get in some of the shows in the old days... but then again I was young in those days!
    Billie is better than expected. Ecclestone should wipe the grin off his face occasionally and I wish he had a more distinctive look about him.
    ALSO... why are all the stories set on / around Earth... come on let's get off world.

    @NeonGod: I missed an episode and found it on www.TVTorrents.com (or something like that).

    In fact, if you look in the Aliens of London episode, which is supposedly set in the near future, someone scrawls 'Bad Wolf' on the Tardis. Now, watch the episode where they go back to the 80's to save Rose's Dad (the one with all the weird giant bats). When they arrive, look at the posters on a brick wall when they are hiding around the corner watching her Dad get run over. Guess what it says. Bad Wolf.

    I'm not aware of any legal way to see the new Doctor Who in the U.S.A., so I've been forced to use other means. (Rhymes with eMule.)

    I grew up on Tom Baker, so no fella in a leather coat is ever going to be my Doctor. But I think he's doing all right. I don't know about you guys, but Doctor Who was a childhood thing for me, so I don't really feel competent to judge the new one. I'm not twelve anymore. It's sort of like trying to re-read Tarzan or the John Carter of Mars books -- doesn't work if you're past a certain age.

    Yeah, It was good.

    I liked the bit where Cap'n Jack pulled a small laser out of his backside.

    Who do you think the bad guy is. On the trailer there was a voice that said "they survived in/though me."

    I think it is the Emperor Dalek, Davoros, that Dalek that "killed" its self or maybe it is the TARDIS gone bad.
