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 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.

I've heard Peter Capaldi's name tossed around quite a bit as the odds-on favorite to be the 12th Doctor, so that's who I'll go with.  It certainly won't be Benedict Cumberbatch, he's too big of a name (though he is a natural ginger, and the Doctor always seems to despair that he's not), no matter how much I'd love to see him do it.  I think if he played the character with a touch of Sherlock's sociopathy, that would be very, very interesting.

Also, if I see one more "fan" demand that David Tennant come back, I'm going to reach through the computer screen and throttle them.  I loved David Tennant as the Doctor, I think he absolutely defined the role, not to mention the fact he's a stellar actor in everything else he's done, but come on.  The Doctor can't degenerate, no matter how much I'd love to see brown pinstripes and Chuck Taylors back in the TARDIS.  It's time to move forward.

So, Peter Capaldi is a Doctor Who fanboy, Scottish, and previously appeared on the show.  I'm thinking Moffat & Co. really dropped the ball on this one.  They could have come out and said, "Fine, here's some hints as to who the new Doctor is going to be.  He's been on the show before, he's Scottish, and he's a huge fanboy."  Then everyone could shiat their pants thinking Tennant was coming back, only to hear the BBC announce Peter as the new Doctor.  Then Moffat could stroll out and say, "Who did you think we were talking about?"

100 Watt Walrus:

The worst parts of the "The Impossible Astronaut"/"Day of the Moon" arc for me tho is the beginning of "Day of the Moon," in which Amy, Rory, and River are being fake hunted down by Delaware. Among the myriad other problems with the plot at that point is that it's never explained why anyone would want them hunted down at that point,

They split up to search for evidence of the Silence/Silents and possibly for weaknesses, and had themselves hunted down as a ruse to bring them all back together to compare notes, since they could not completely remember why they were searching or what they were searching for except upon seeing the Silents, but they could remember a suggestion given to them while in the visual presence of one.
Earlier in the story they had come up with a plan to mark themselves every time they encountered one of the Aliens, and by doing so they came up with a sample census of their population and whereabouts on Earth.

who ordered the hunting,

President Nixon ordered the manhunt, at the request of the Doctor in return for solving the mystery of the phone calls to the oval office coming from a scared little girl in Florida.  Delaware was highly enough ranked in government service to be allowed free reign to do so.

why they're being killed instead of captured,

To Fool any Silents/Silence who might be observing the hunt to conclude they were being eliminated as a possible threat, even to the remote possibility of a threat they seemed to be.   In the meantime the Doctor had concocted a plan to find their hideout or weakness to fight them with.

 and for whose benefit their deaths are being faked.

See above.

And don't even get me started on the imprisonment of the Doctor.

That part made the most sense of all.  The Doctor could not trick the Silents into entering the Tardis to be captured.  So he had himself captured first, placed under 24 hour observation by no less than 4 armed special forces soldiers (multiple eyes watching the scene at all times) and imprisoned in a room that an enemy would eventually have to physically enter to challenge the Doctor - But could not themselves escape from.  Then he arranged for Rory, Amy, and River to be brought in (Dead or Alive, preferably fake Dead) to the same place where they could compare notes.

The setup was the scene in the Tardis where the doctor was able to create a holographic projection of a Silent and used that to force some post hypnotic suggestions into the minds of his companions.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: enforcerpsu: whizbangthedirtfarmer: enforcerpsu: He covered any major plot hole to the point where the story is congruent.

Please tell me how the story arc of an alien cult kidnapping a kid to raise as their own, watching her escape, then recapture her, then putting her in an astronaut's suit under a lake to shoot the Doctor, then the Doctor figures this out, somehow decides to force humanity to commit genocide on the creatures, and then marrying the girl who tried to shoot him to repair the universe is in any way "congruent."

I call it befuddled and ridiculous.

\let's face it, Moffat's scripts are pretty on the inside, but don't hold up to the slightest scrutiny
\\ditto with Sherlock = pretty, but inane

If you took a moment to understand it instead of just talking...you might understand it. All of this stuff happens over 100s of years.

You missed the point.  That is the most convoluted plot point, and you're relying on "it happens over time!" thing, which, in itself, makes no sense (and it also didn't really happen over centuries). Tell me why the Silence, then, brought in Amy's daughter?  And why they put her at the bottom of a lake?  And why she was wearing an astronaut's suit?  And, biggest of all, how the Doctor condoned genocide?  All of these questions don't have clear answers, and never will.  Like "the impossible girl," Moffat just likes the sound of "the impossible astronaut".


This.

The worst parts of the "The Impossible Astronaut"/"Day of the Moon" arc for me tho is the beginning of "Day of the Moon," in which Amy, Rory, and River are being fake hunted down by Delaware. Among the myriad other problems with the plot at that point is that it's never explained why anyone would want them hunted down at that point, who ordered the hunting, why they're being killed instead of captured, and for whose benefit their deaths are being faked. And don't even get me started on the imprisonment of the Doctor. Moffat just wanted a particular set of circumstances, and a particular couple of set pieces (e.g., Amy being chased through the desert), and he didn't give a single fark how he got the characters there. He just threw together a few flashbacks and slapped a "three months later" title card on the screen. It was a sign of things to come from Moffat.

And I'm right there with you on "Sherlock." For the most part, those stories don't stand up to even a modicum of intellectual scrutiny. The leads are brilliant (and brilliantly cast), and the storytelling is unique and compelling enough to make them fun to watch. But if your Sherlock farking Holmes story requires the viewer to check his/her brain at the door, you've utterly failed to write a good Sherlock Holmes story.

ArcadianRefugee: HopScotchNSoda: Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: He must get off on not getting off. I'll be patient and await the next special Doctor Who: After Dark.

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.

River had her own thoughts on things (paraphrased): "Two Doctors? The mind races at the possibilities...."



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.

You missed two great episodes.  One of which was my all-time favorite "old-Who".



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.

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.

Coco LaFemme: I believe he said he only wanted to do one series because he didn't want to be typecast.


He said that at the time. Since then, he's essentially admitted that he and RTD wanted to kill each other.

Serious Black: phalamir: Zombie DJ: Coco LaFemme: Seriously though, can someone explain to me why we need a TV special announcing who the next Doctor is?  Just issue a press release.  They didn't do this in 2009.

Because this is it.
There can only be 12 regenerations.
It's the end.....of time.....

You can't count.  1+12 regens = 13 Doctors.

And that implies they plan to hold onto something to the detriment of not making money.  Esepcialliy after they have retconned essentially every other known fact about the Doctor at least 3 times

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


Even easier: No Timelords, no rules.

They were the ones that gifted the Master with extra lives. The limit seems to be artificial anyway.

Metalupis: I will be much happoer if it is some semi-obscure british actor and not someone who is already famous for other things


This is pretty much my theory of what will happen. When has this not happened? Who the hell knew who any of the previous three modern Doctors were in North America? It's a little exasperating seeing people hope beyond hope for a big name, though I will gracefully admit I was wrong if a big name does get it. I just don't think it's bloody likely given, oh, everything.

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.

Yeah, I get the "you are not subscribed to this channel." Then if I try to subscribe it tells me I can't. I really don't know why I have cable.

Huh, thats weird, I have the cheapest package and have it available to me....


Ha it figures. Whenever I see something interesting in the guide I'm usually not subscribed to it.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Coco LaFemme: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Coco LaFemme: Mr.Tangent: AND THE NEW DOCTOR IS....
[www.bized.co.uk image 450x443]

Oh man, Rowan Atkinson as The Doctor would be farking GOLD.  I know it'll never happen, but now I want that really, really bad.

I've been saying this for years.

I think he's the right combination of Eccleston's seriousness, Tennant's physicality, and Smith's goofiness.  Who do we need to bribe at the BBC to make this happen?  Does Moffat take personal checks directly?

He has to play it straight though, not as a comedian.  It wouldn't work if everybody thinks we've got Doctor Blackadder or Doctor Bean.


I agree, and now it's kind of pissing me off that it'll never happen because he's too big of a name.

FirstNationalBastard: baka-san: Already had a 12th Doctor

*coughtrialofatimelordcough*

No, The Valeyard is an incarnation from between the twelfth Doctor and his final regeneration. That would make him Doctor 12.5.


If we want to play this game we can say that we arn't getting a 12th Doctor but a 11.5.
