OtherLittleGuy: rynthetyn: dennysgod: This Doctor sure has a thing for Jenny (who can blame him) when they met up with the "supermodels" he's pointing his Sonic at them, but then Jenny rips off her clothes to revel a very skintight outfit he stares at her and his Sonic then points straight up in the air. Very cheeky.

I rather liked that she slapped him but good when he snogged her. This iteration of The Doctor has been snogging his companions willy nilly whether they want it or not, and he's been asking to be smacked.

They missed the obvious rejoiner: "Doctor! Please! I'm a married woman!"


 Hah.  That would have been a good bit.

crotchgrabber: Just from seeing the threads about Dr Who and hearing some people talk it up I'm quite intrigued. But I have never seen one minute of the show. Ever. How, and where should I start?


With nearly 50 years of history you can jump in anywhere and be just as confused as the rest of us.

FirstNationalBastard: Thomas Thomas gives directions.

Tom Tom is a GPS device.


And this is the problem with this entire season. The writers work so hard to show how clever they are, and forget to just write interesting stories.

It's funny how after so many years of not really seeing her, Diana Rigg is suddenly all over the TV:

About the only good things in this episode (SPOILERS, obv):

1) Whats-her-face in a cat suit
2) Love did not save the day. As a mater of fact, the day was saved by violence, lots of gratuitous violence.

So it had that going for it.

NeoCortex42: The 'Thomas' joke was stupid, but I laughed.


Oh, god. I didn't get it. I totally didn't get the joke until just now. I feel like an idiot.

whyaduck: I really enjoyed this episode.


Yeah. I think this is easily the best one this season. Or at least this half of the season. I think it highlights the pacing issue that's been hitting the series pretty badly the last few seasons: they're writing the story like it's 4 acts, and then trying to fit it into a more standard 3-act hour long program.

The old serials were paced in four acts, mostly. One of them would feel like it was filler (because it was). What they've generally been doing in the new seasons is keeping the filler act and then short-changing the climax. That's a terribly stupid way to pace stories, and it results in muddled stories where the mechanisms of the resolution were pretty much just hand-waving.

In this episode, they took the "filler" act, compressed it into a brief flashback, and used that time to give us a nice, action-y climax. By spending as much time as we did with the Victorian Trio, we actually got some nice moments.

I predict we haven't seen the last of Thomas Thomas, or as I like to call him, "GPS".

Also, when the Doctor was acting... ahem...  woodenly, did anyone else feel like they were watching Peter Davidson? I suspect it was intentional, since they made a callback to Teegan.

If possible start with the begining of the new series, Christopher Eckleston (spelling may be off there) made a great Doctor

I like the episodes where he has more than one companion. Maybe that's why I miss the Ponds. This season just isn't doing it for me. I thought Clara would be a great companion but she's just "Meh". Yeah she's hot, but what are better: the Leela episodes of the 4th Doctor or the Sarah Jane episodes? A hotter companion does not equal betters shows. I went back and watched some great episodes from Seasons 5 and 6 with the Ponds and River Song. Episodes like "The Pandorica Opens", "The Big Bang", "The Impossible Astronaut", "Day of the Moon", "A Good Man Goes to War". These episodes are epic and incredible. What have we gotten this season? The universe saved by a leaf, The Doctor in Das Boot, The Doctor in Ghostbusters, and Salvage Men on a Tardis. I'm not the only one who feels this way, that the season is meh. Look at the BBC ratings someone posted last week. The show is headed down fast. It's bleeding viewers:

The Snowmen: 9.87 mil
The Bells: 6.8 mi
The Rings: 5.5 mil
Cold War: 5.7
Hide: 5 mil
Journey: 4.9 mil

They need to find a way to bring the Ponds back....although they won't. Was it ever explained how the Ponds saw their future selves in the future in "The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood" if their future selves are stuck in the past? Or will that paradox just go down the memory hole?
