    I hope I'm not the only person that's ever felt sad because their TARDIS badge wouldn't fit through their ear piercing...

    Heh, I'm a reasonable Whovian. Era, I do prefer pre-reboot, although I am quite a fan of Matt Smith. Companion is Captain Jack Harkness, tied with Sarah Jane and K9 though. Alien for me is most certainly the Ood. They're quite... ood.

    thats the problem isnt it, the new doctor whos kinda stand aloneso its hard to compare. Although school reunion was good for that, with David tenant meeting sarah jane, and K9. Partly due to the fact that tennant was a doctor who fan, so that mustve blown his mind, you can see his glee in his acting. Well, at least until he married a doctor who daughter :crazy:

    Yes, and the short special for "Children in Need" when Tennant's Doctor and Davison's Doctor met was terribly fun, and a good example of what can be done with the "more than one Doctor" theme. Now if someone could write a DECENT multiple Doctor storyline! Can you imagine all the newbies teamed with, say, Davison -- or Baker? He's bizarre enough he might actually do it. Hard to write one of those without getting cheesy though.

    John Sim's master was...well...masterful! Reminded me a great deal of the original Roger Delgado character: sly, brilliant, more than a little insane. Now...resurrect Romana! Sure, she'd have stayed on Gallifrey, fought in the Time War, been killed along with the rest...unless someone else forced her into doing the "turning human" trick as the Doctor and the Master willingly did. A New Romana meeting the new Doctor, and perhaps having her memory jarred...wouldn't that be fun?

    i did think for a while thats who River Song was going to be. To be honest Im far from convinced she is who she claims to be, so who knows. After all she had a sonic screwdriver and knows the doctors real name - I think what has been disclosed as her identity (dont wanna put spoilers in if you havent seen it) is actually going to turn out to be a red herring, because, the little girl in the space suit can regenerate. And only time lords do that.

    Well, but if you count SJA, Eleven did meet with Sarah Jane (and Jo!) in 'Death of the Doctor' right? I still haven't seen that episode yet, as series 4 isn't on Netflix. :( Anyway, that episode shoulda brought him back to his classic roots (besides all the images of past incarnations we've seen since he's been the Doc.

    Oh, and speaking of River, you guys know she's this years new series SDCC exclusive figure, right? She's packed-out with the Pandorica chair and base (compatible with the sides previously released with other figures). A new action figure of her has been a long time coming.

    Now for the really BIG news!! The classic SDCC release is... LEELA!!! No images yet, but hopefully within the next couple of days. Leela is supposed to be readily available sometime after the con, this week is just first dibbs. I want her!!! :D

    GAH! I've been snuck up on! :eek:

    I just found out that the second half of series six premired on Saturday! Was that in the US? And, if so, did anybody know about it and/or catch it?

    The latest two episode (Series finale, and series opener) reveal all. I was hoping she'd turn out to be The Rani, but interestingly she's got a whole different arc. I do wonder, though, whether if she had not been a human actress who would obviously age, whether they'd have dragged her storyline out properly over many series, instead of pushing it all into one series.

    May I take that as a yes?

    On the new episodes front, I both bless and curse OnDemand.

    I bless it because I can't watch the episodes as they premiere, but I can at least catch them there. :excited:

    I curse it because they pulled 'Let's Kill Hitler' from the menu before I got a chance to see it! :grouchy:

    Watched 'Night Terrors', though. Freaked me out. And that's saying something. I don't scare easily. :eek:

    Was that one of the eps writ by the same guy who wrote "Silence in the Library"?

    I am sooo jealous. I have to wait and try to snag the box sets used. No cable and not enough $$ to buy 'em new.

  11. ZeppoAndFriends

    ZeppoAndFriends Well-Known Member

    Um...no, it's the latest episode written by Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot's Lantern, Victory of the Daleks). Silence in the Library was written by current show-runner Steven Moffat.

    Thanks! I really need to get hold of the Matt ones. I feel far behind again.

    I just realized that I forgot a question (word) that I meant to put in in the first post:

    What is your LEAST favorite Doctor, companion, etcetra, etcetra, etcetra...?​
  14. newsmanfan

    newsmanfan Well-Known Member


    Least fave Doc: Colin Baker. Just awful. The actor AND the character!
    Least fave companion: Adric. Dying is the only thing he did worth a darn.
    Least fave monster: the original Sontarans were pretty boring, and during the Pertwee years there were a number of really fake-looking critters involved which just ruined the suspension of disbelief for me...but I don't know that there was any one I disliked so intensely as to give them this title!
    Least fave eps...would have to give serious thought (and scroll through a Wiki, it's been decades since I've seen the old ones!).

    I've been debating this for a while, so I figure now is as good a time as any.

    So, I've been in and out of a bout of writer's block on a novel I'm writing and as a sort of palate cleanser, I've been plunking out a screenplay for a Doctor Who movie (weird technique, I know) and it made me wonder.

    Which direction would you go if you were put in charge of writing a Doctor Who movie? Pure Sci-Fi? Nightmare inducing? Historical? What would your plot be? What monsters would you use? Would you create a new Doctor and, if so, what would he be like?

    I'd probably stick with whomever the current Doc was, and try for continuity with existing storylines if needed. As to theme...I have a soft spot for the really creepy ones. Probably something paranoia-inducing for the characters which even the Doctor gets creeped out by, though off the top of my head I have no idea what that might be. I'd love to drag back in past one-shot characters, such as Jake (from the alternate Cyber-earth) or the cat-pilot from New(16?)York. I always loved the idea on "Max Headroom" that they were our world, but "15 minutes into the future" and might do something along those lines for setting: a recognizable earth, but a little more sci-fi...and darker. Monsters? No idea. Something new...although the Swarm was pretty darned cool (from "Silence in the Library").

    It's been a while, I see...

    Have finally caught up with most of Matt's first season now. (I will watch "The Pandorica Opens" tonight!) I was hesitant to get into him because I really, really loved Tennant...and the very first ep changed my mind. What an adorkable character! And Amy reminds me a LOT of Jo and Sarah Jane...just so wonderfully perkily indomitable.

    Now I have to budget some cash for the next series...

    VERY curious about River. No, no, don't tell me anything!
