Any Doctor Who Fans?

Mon Jul 10, 2006 10:55 pm

Did anyone se the last episode, where Billie Piper (aka Rose) was supposed to die, but did not?

Did you hear the Dalek's lines? Some classic ones were there:

"Socail interaction will cease!"
and
"The Dalek's do not identify"

Anyone watch it?

I saw the penultimate episode, when the Daleks came out of their void-pod (what a cool thing to have, there are a few people I could think of who deserve to be sealed in a void-pod) - oooooh, scarey !!

Don't tell me what happens though, I shall have to get the DVD of the last series.

It was a good episode, though it gave too much over to the emotional stuff - the dalek/cyberman battle should have gone on longer and had more sequences.

Excellent!!

However, I'm not sure about Catherine Tate taking over as the crumpet. I don't particularly like her.

Ah well, roll on next series whatever Big grin

Well, I am a die hard Dr Who fan. I have to say that i thought the revamping would fall flat on its face, I was always old-school Dr Who, Jon Pertwee being my favourite, and growing up with Peter Davison.

I was, however very impressed with the 21st century Dr Who. I enjoyed Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor, but unfortunately I haven't seen much of the 10th - I will see them eventually.

I liked Billie Piper, I loved the Tardis and the theme music, and thought Eccleston played the role really well.

My only concern is that the rate at which the new Dr Who is going, they'll be looking for a new Doctor soon, and remember, he only has 12 regenerations. Then he'll have to start scrapping around for someone else's body, like the Master before him!

These modern newfangled actors are too concerned with being stereotyped and don't stay in the role very long. Consider Tom Baker's stint lasting for 7 years!

Still, the new Who is good, it gets the children back into Sci-Fi, and is without a doubt the most inventive and energetic British TV drama on the telly. Keep it up BBC!

I don't think Catherine Tate is going to be the new "Rose", I think shes only in it for one episode, at Christmas. Some black girl I ever never seen or heard of before is going to be his new right-hand girls, apparently.

I am only 17, so do not know much about the old DoctoWho, but even I fear it is going down a to ...er....modern way, a bit too jokey and fast-paced, know what I mean?

I like Eccleston, and also like Tennant, very good actors, and am very pleased with Billie Piper, who has improved somewhat.

Well I suggest you get yourself to the library or HMV and stock up on the classis Dr Who stories.

There's a whole fantastic world to experience.

A few classics, not including William Hartnell or Patrick Troughton:
Jon Pertwee
Spearhead from Space
The Daemons (my favourite)
Inferno

Tom Baker
Genesis of the Daleks (Davros is excellent in this)
Pyramids of Mars
The Robots of Death
City of Death
Logopolis


Peter Davison
Earthshock
The Caves of Androzani (got to be one of the best ever stories)

Colin Baker
Vengeance on Varos
Revalation of the Daleks

Sylvester McCoy
Remembrance of the Daleks
Ghost Light (A classic Dr Who really atmospheric)
The Curse of Fenric
Survival

I havent watched any of the current season, but I watched the previous one and I disliked it - too 'earth orientated', Dr Who wasnt about that (unless they hit a longterm budget reduction, and even then it wasnt about earth just based on earth).

Dont know if this season was any better, but I have the entire 4th Doctor episodes to watch over the next few months (over 40 stories Big grin ) so Im not too bothered tbh.

I know what you mean. However, when re-introducing Doctor Who to an entirely new generation of viewers, in a Britain very different compared to that throughout the show's entire history, I feel that certain concessions were needed.

I am guessing that the constant focus of the first new series on Earth was to allow new viewers to familiarise themselves with the Doctor, in environments that were recognisable.

It's also worth considering that if you were the Doctor, you may initially play around with showing your new companion their own planet in the past or future, and then move on to alien worlds.

Yes, it was the best one of the series! Most of this series was crap. The best episodes were the one's written by Mark Gatiss. Sad to see Billie Piper go but I'm sure she'll go on to bigger and better things.  Smile

You're a noobie! You wouldn't remember William Hartnell, the first, and only IMHO, Dr Who. All the ones I've seen since have been pale imitations.

The effects were dodgy, the sets shaky, but the storylines and plots were terrific. Every second adventure the Tardis would sail through time, and I learnt more about the French Revolution, ancient Rome and various other periods in history than I ever did from schoolbooks.

I used to watch Dr Who when I lived in the UK when I was a kid, never seen it since then. Last Saturday (July 1st) I watched it (glad to hear the same old Tardis sound!) and when the Daleks jumped out of the sphere... WTF!!! Didn't get to see the last episode though  Sad
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
