Shadow Blasko: If someone told me that the Doctor would be an older male, who had already been in NuWho, I would have had a squeesploshion at the thought of it possibly being Anthony Stewart Head.

Just saying...


Well sure, everyone wants Head...

I'd give Dr. Who a chance, but I watched a few episodes of the 70s version on PBS when I was a kid. It looked & still looks cheaply made. 
Also now that it's some kind of 'geek cred' thing I'm passing. Tired of the popular geek thing.


I don't know or care about "geek cred", I just enjoy the storylines and it's fun as hell to watch.  I don't care what the Doctor looks like as long as he is *the* Doctor.

NeoCortex42: How much space does the whole series take up?


1963-1989 (including the special features and Shada, but excluding the  K-9 & Company pilot) takes up about 285.99 gigabytes. [look for the torrent labelled "Doctor Who - The Complete Classic 26 Seasons Collection + Extras"]  I don't have a total for K9 & Company, the PaulMcGann movie, the Richard E. Grant cartoon, nor the revived era. Besides, in the revived era, it would depend upon many factors, like HD versus SD; whether or not to include Torchwood; whether or not to include The Sarah Jane Adventures; whether or not to include K-9, et cet.


Serious Black:  River gave up all of her regenerations to bring the Doctor back to life. They can just say she gave those regenerations to him.

Or that the High Council granted him 13 more, or an unlimited number, or whatever during the Last Great Time War; they had given the Master more lives in exchange for his services, after all.
Or, as the self-proclaimed Time Lord Victorious, he has no such limitations.
Or that sealing Amy's crack (now  there's a good album title) re-set the limit to 13 more lives.
Or that the events of "The End of Time" gave him more/unlimited lives.
Or that the Great Intelligence's & Clara's screwings about  in his timeline somehow added more lives.
Or any other waives of the hand.

I hear ya. When Battlestar Galactica first aired in the 70s, it was cheaply made. So when SciFi made a new BSG, I didn't watch that because the one from 25 years earlier sucked.

Excellent choice. This should be interesting.

Paging to this thread all the nitwits who bellyached about how the Doctor keeps getting younger, and who predicted someone young again. Come take your punishment, nitwits.

Cheesehead_Dave: Wow, Matt Smith totally had no idea who #12 was yet when he did that last interview.


Don't think that's the case. In that same interview, he mentioned how the guy playing the next Doctor (Capaldi) approached him on the street the day after The Eleventh Hour was broadcast and complimented him on his portrayal. IIMO Smith was just being skittish about it lest he accidentally reveal somehow in the interview (though it had been recorded and edited).

FirstNationalBastard: Hey, new Law and Order UK, where Martha Jones works for the Fifth Doctor.


That's a few years old.  She's been off the show for a couple of seasons.  She plays what is effectively the proto-Samantha on the Sex & The City prequel series, The Carrie Diaries. (i.e., sophisticated somewhat older, over-sexed Englishwoman in the publishing industry who mentors Carie).

Interestingly, all companions with a fondness for cawk, who travelled to olde-tyme New York City have American acting careers now. Moreover, both female regular companions who did so, have since done non-Who period pieces in NYC - Amy in the oddly coincidently titled film,  We'll Take Manhattan, set in the 1960s, and Martha in the 1980s-set  The Carrie Diaries.

I don't think whatever solves the regeneration limit has happened yet, because that removes a great storyline of the Doctor facing his mortality when we reach the end of the 12th Doctor's tenure. Since they are adding Hurt's incarnation in between 8 and 9, Smith to Capaldi is now technically the 12th regeneration, so that storyline would come at the end of his tenure, unless of course 10 fixing himself during Journey's End counted as a regeneration so you would have 11 thinking he is going to his final death in the Christmas special. Either way they do it, they are giving up what is potentially a good storyline in the Doctor getting to the end of his limit, and if he wants to try to find a loophole or not.

So what exactly is the Doctor's deal when it comes to asexually creeping (which is tough to do) on his young companions?

Is there some backstory I've missed that explains his fetish?

The BBC originally made DW as a childrens' program. They needed a reason to get the fathers watching as well -- ergo, young, attractive, female companions.

Moffat's recent comments that the River Song story is essentially complete worries me, in that it suggests that we'll never see what happened between her becoming baby Mels in NYC in January 1970 and her becoming her parents' childhood friend in the late 1990s.

Presumably, she went to NY for a reason, possibly because she knew her sixty-something-year-old parents were there (maybe adult River had told her that off-camera in Florida), or maybe just because it is a major air and shipping port from which it would be relatively easy to stow away to England. Did she meet up with Amy & Rory and let them rear her for a few years?  If so, how did they meet up in a city of 8 million (particularly since Rory having a little garden suggests that they lived in one of the outlying boroughs instead of Manhattan where she regenerated)?  Did adult River take her ahead in time via her vortex manipulator? Or did she cross the Atlantic, sneak into UNIT HQ, and take the TARDIS ahead, since the TARDIS knows who she is implied to feel somewhat maternal toward her? Maybe it was she who fixed the TARDIS for the Third Doctor, without him realising it.  Does Anthony know about her?

Hey, that reminds me, in "First Night" and "Last Night", he passed up the chance to be the meat in a River-River sandwich and in a River-River-River sandwich.  Given her parents' shared reaction to a second Amy in "Time", I'm pretty sure she'd have been totally up for it.

Didn't he also recently admit to "lying his arse off for months" about the 50th special? Someone along the line during the NYC filming for "The Angels Take Manhattan" Karen Gillan shot a scene in old age makeup based on her twitter comments at the time (which were a year after The Girl Who Waited" was filmed). I'm betting that at some point we wind up seeing an aged Amy Pond in the last two Matt Smith stories to tie up that plot point. There Ponds being in NYC at the same time young River was there is just too convenient for it not to pay off at some point.

I can only hope the "Amy Pond Story" is contained to Smith's Doctor, much as Rose was a Tennant Doctor thing.

Of course, the new Doctor would probably call her a farking wanker for waiting, so I can deal with that.

Six months earlier, there were, momentarily, six or seven Williamses/Ponds there at once - along with two Cantons.  The Doctor was the only person in the TARDIS when River splashed into the pool, who wasn't simultaneously elsewhere in or en route to NYC (although he was also elsewhere).  OK, in Amy's case, only one real Amy was in NY, as the one aboard the TARDIS was a Ganger. Still, Amy & Rory were 60-something residents of the city. Canton's days-younger self was a few stories above, having just tried to arrest River. Melody was either wandering about the city or was on her way there, and her adopted brother Anthony would have been about 25 years old. The Third Doctor was working for UNIT, and the TARDIS' younger self was non-functional.

Agreed.Apart from his too frequent 'r'-rolling, the Seventh Doctor was pretty darn good.  He had secrets and manipulated people for his ends.

But even if not for the Seventh Doctor, then his serials are quite worth viewing at least for Ace.  Ace kicked serious ass - and was the first more-or-less openly sexual (and a bit less openly bi-sexual) companion before 2005.  She physically beat the snot out of a Dalek, and she blew up a Cyber landing craft with her home-made Nitro-9.

Among the insane Daleks who surrounded Oswin in the asylum (such as the special weapons Dalek) were ones who fought and lost to Ace & Seven at the Battle of Shoreditch, over the course of the two days immediately after the First Doctor left with Susan, Ian, and Barbara.

The Seventh Doctor and Sabalom Glitz also essentially swapped 'wives'. Mel (who had been originally introduced alongside Glitz in Trial of a Time Lord) dumped the Doctor to travel with the big, hairy, sweaty space smuggler; while his resentful ex-lover Ace (whose cork Glitz had popped previously) eagerly flew off with the "Professor".

Long before Luke Smith met his infant mother and watched his grandparents drive off to save her, Ace did that.  Long before (audience perspective) Jenny Flint had a beastial lesbian marriage to Vastra, Ace shared romantic feelings with Karra the cat girl.

She also told her dad when he jokingly suggested there could be two of him, "Now that would be a whole different kind of birthday."

She could have had a five-way like that in "Last Night".  There were three adult Rivers and two Eleventh Doctors.

The Doctor, being a bit of a prude, would have probably wanted to take the party rather deep into the TARDIS so as not to be discovered by Amy & Rory.  It's awkward enough being caught in bed with your gal by her parents; let alone with three of her and a second one of yourself.

As I rewatch the Seventh Doctor and Ace, I realized that in almost all of the episodes, Ace beats the shiat out of something with a large stick, or otherwise blows it up.  Ghost Light=insect guys.  Greatest Show in the Galaxy=laser beam shootin' robot.  Remembrance of the Daleks=Dalek.

This is what I want to see the 12th Doctor say at some point, preferably to a Dalek:

"I'm sorry, I know how sensitive you are to bad language, so I'll make it better for you.  You are boring as F-star-star-coont."

I have no idea how the fark I'm going to get Malcolm Tucker out of my head when I see him as the Doctor.

But even if not for the Seventh Doctor, then his serials are quite worth viewing at least for Ace.  Ace kicked serious ass - and was the first more-or-less openly sexual (and a bit less openly bi-sexual) companion before 2005.  She physically beat the snot out of a Dalek, and she blew up a Cyber landing craft with her home-made Nitro-9.

Among the insane Daleks who surrounded Oswin in the asylum (such as the special weapons Dalek) were ones who fought and lost to Ace & Seven at the Battle of Shoreditch, over the course of the two days immediately after the First Doctor left with Susan, Ian, and Barbara.

The Seventh Doctor and Sabalom Glitz also essentially swapped 'wives'. Mel (who had been originally introduced alongside Glitz in Trial of a Time Lord) dumped the Doctor to travel with the big, hairy, sweaty space smuggler; while his resentful ex-lover Ace (whose cork Glitz had popped previously) eagerly flew off with the "Professor".

Long before Luke Smith met his infant mother and watched his grandparents drive off to save her, Ace did that.  Long before (audience perspective) Jenny Flint had a beastial lesbian marriage to Vastra, Ace shared romantic feelings with Karra the cat girl.


Good gravy, ,man! I'll have to queue up the McCoy years on the passion of your post alone! Alon Zeee'd'?!?

I've got mixed feelings on the new Doctor, but I'm sure he will be good.

/went through the same thing with Matt Smith.

Hebalo: mafiageek1980: whizbangthedirtfarmer: You can tell the hipster fans from the actual fans. On Facebook a lot of the hipsters are saying things like "ew a grandpa doctor!!!" Meanwhile most of the real fans are exuberant.

\still no cure for Moffat

NeoCortex42: drewogatory: rpm: The All-Powerful Atheismo: TheManofPA: rpm: The All-Powerful Atheismo: They need to release the complete Dr. Who on DVD.  As complete as possible at least.  Kind of like what they did with Dark Shadows recently.

This. Holy shiat that would be expensive though.

And would sell probably pretty well.

I'd buy the shiat out of it no matter how much it was (almost)

The Dark Shadows set lists for $600, I can imagine a Dr. Who set hitting 4 figures.

I have a buddy who built a custom Tardis external hd enclosure that houses every episode available on the net. Lights up, makes the noises etc. Geeks me out every time I see it.

How much space does the whole series take up?


Much less than you would think :)

Gsm136: HopScotchNSoda: Pentaxian: All this fuss about a new English doctor... maybe national health care isn't all that it's cracked up to be...

I think Peter Capaldi - along with Sylvester McCoy, Karen Gillan, and every other Scot who ever lived - would like to have a word with you. Sean Connery would probably drop you on your arse.

Just leave it for the man himself (Bonus: Gandolfini)


Watching that led me to this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg-pnGFbwMQ

Apropos of nothing except Capaldi and sci-fi, but funny as hell all the same.

Oops. Looks like  HopScotchNSoda beat me to it.
