Doctor Who

Been meaning to start a thread on this for years and never have for some reason. Big fan of both the original (what I've seen/remember of it...) and the rebooted series.

New doctor:

I have watched the first 5 seasons and like it a lot.

Didn't or haven't watched any of the earlier versions of it.

I grew up on the Tom Baker version, but didn't get back into it until Matt Smith (the newest Doctor) was brought on board. I have caught up on the reboot (the last few seasons) over the last month thanks to Netflix and a couple of sick days.

BTW - I am in love with Karen Gillian

I couldn't get past the first episode of the reboot. The stupid mannequin hand had me face palming. So dumb. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't.

A lot of people like Eccleston, but I thought the first season was by far the weakest. The 3rd, 4th and 5th are about as good as anything on TV. David Tennant was brilliant as the doctor, and Matt Smith has turned out to be I think an inspired casting.

They do have their occasional episode with the bizarre alien (must be a british thing - mannequins and clowns and weird shit) but for every episode that has me cringing there's 5 or 6 more that blow me away.

I'm disgusted that Eccleston only played one season because he thought he would be typecast. Truth was not many knew of him before, and its still true after. There are only a certain number of regenerations and to throw one away on an actor that would only play one season was folly. They've already used a throw away doctor for the American version.

I like Eccelston, but you're right. RTD should have made sure that CE was going to stick around for awhile. I know that the two of them didn't get along, but Eccelston makes it sound like his plan was to be one and done all along, so I blame RTD for that.

By the American throw away, do you mean Paul McGann. I really think they could go back and still tell Doctor 8's story. I know that the Brits weren't keen on McGann, but the idea has a lot of support from US and International fans. I hope they do it, and not just as a cameo either.

I felt the opposite. I loved that Eccelson episode. His first episode seemed like a fitting tribute to Jon Pertwee's first episode as Doctor Three, because he faced the Autons as well. It's worth noting that Rory used to be an Auton, and the effect of the hand laser is the exact same as the Pertwee days. I love that about the DW continuity. Also, Pertwee finding his "outfit" for the first time in the hospital was also repeated by Paul McGann and Matt Smith.

Back to Eccelson- I thought his series was great. He was a tougher Doctor who probably (along with McGann's Doctor) lived through the Time War at some point after 8 was most likely killed during it. Empty Child is one of my favorite Doctor Who Episodes (are you my mommy?), along with all the Dalek episodes of that season. Eccelson telling the Daleks "no,"at the end was awesome. Although Eccelson and his "daft old face" isn't my favorite Doctor, he's definitely up there.

This was rough to get through. I first attempted episode one months and months ago. Didn't make it through that first episode. Decided to try again a few days ago... and here I am 8 episodes later. It does get a lot better.

I also have recently began watching and finished all of the new series a month or so ago. I can tell you that i almost did not make it through season one, but am REALLY glad I stuck it out. It took off with the 10th Doctor, but I love the 11th.

I can't seem to get into Torchwood, though. The supporting characters seem too dumb in spite of how brilliant they are supposed to be.

The girlfriend got me into it about two months ago before she went away to Cuba. Have to say, it's absolutely brilliant. Some of the visuals are a bit cheesy, but that really adds to its charm.

Season 1 was one of the weaker efforts IMO; Ecclestone wasn't a bad Doctor, but he's better suited to more villainous roles; just my two cents, but he would've been absolutely KILLER as the Master. Still, he got me into the show.

David Tennant was beyond brilliant. It's rare you see an actor inhabit a character so completely the way he did. The writing for his tenure on the show was spot-on, and one of the best episodes of any tv show ever was done during his run; season 3 has an episode called 'Blink' and even if you've never seen an episode of Doctor Who in your life, Megavideo it or torrent it or something. It's so well-done, you owe it to yourself to give it a watch.

I like Matt Smith. I bought his Sonic Screwdriver. But I'm not entirely convinced by him yet. He's funny, but sometimes his shouting lacks impact and comes across as rather childish and un-Doctorlike. But he definitely brings an energy that the role requires. Can't wait for the new season to start, that's for sure.

Oh, and for those of you that have watched the new seasons, rank the Doctor's companions.

1. Martha Jones (Freema Ageyman)
2. Amy Pond (Karen Gillian)
3. Rose Tyler (Billie Piper)
4. Donna Noble (Catherine Tate)

Google at your own discretion

Here's a couple of 4 minute "minisodes" they did for comic relief a couple of weeks ago.

The new season can't get here soon enough. I grew up watching Tom Baker reruns on PBS and have been a fan ever since. During the summer of '09 I spent a few months in Ireland. My last week there I took the ferry over to Wales and headed inland to Cardiff where they film alot of Doctor Who and its spinoff, Torchwood. While I was there I went to a Doctor Who exhibition which was a total nerdgasm for me. I've attached a few pics from the exhibition for anyone who cares, plus a couple pics from a block down the street of Roald Dahl Plass, the fictional entrance to the Torchwood Institute, and the Wales Millenium Center.
