It's not hard sci-fi. Just Science Fiction concept.

 The whole point of the show is that you can go to any time, any place.  And that actually translates into any story genre to any story mood.
So you can get a witty satire set in the future, you can get a modern horror episode, a steam punk episode and a very nice historical episode.

Some of the recent highlights "Blink" a very moody and scary tale of Quantum assassins statues.   "Vincent and the Doctor" A really touching tale about the famous painter Vincent Van Gohg while dealing alien threat.

And then you get an episode that makes no damn sense at all, but great fun.   LIke "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship"

You will always have a science fiction element.  There is never any real supernatural element, everything is based in science.

But there really isn't any science fiction involved.

Occasionaly there are major story arcs.  The 11th Doctor just conluded a story that began when he started the show.

I would say, go to Netflix and watch the New Who from the beginning. The series progressively gets better.

When I was a teenager I loved Star Trek: TNG. Then I really hated it and came to really hate Star Wars and most things sci-fi and that lasted for about the last 12 or so years. I started watching Dr. Who last January and I can't get enough of it. Dr. Who is a different show every time you watch it with story arc that make it interesting if you watch them all. I think I consumed every show from 2005 until now on Netflix within a few short months.

At least go through the Rose Tyler episodes before you pass judgement on it, but I really loved the River Song story arc.

The first-ever episode of Doctor Who I watched was The Day of the Doctor, simply for the 50th anniversary hype.

I was hooked and I'm currently consuming everything since 2005.

I could tell you who my favorite Doctor is, but would end up with some hipster accusations. Go back and watch some classic episodes and make up your own mind. There is a reason it is the longest running sci-fi/drama series on TV.

Because brits and most of the world are completely insane(Like Me).

TheManWho: FFS, as licence fee paying Brit, can I go onto this licence fee funded website? Can I fark.


The BBC are not allowed to make advertising-funded websites available in the UK and not allowed to use licence fee money to fund websites for non-UK people. So they have no choice, websites aimed at the rest of the world must be advert funded and cannot be allowed to be viewed inside the UK. The BBC was even forced to cut back its web services within the UK a few years ago because of complaints from commercial web content providers who complained about the unfair competition. The BBC has to jump through lots of hoops in all sorts of areas to avoid violating competition law. Even the few physical BBC Shops have to be careful they don't price their DVDs and stuff cheaper than commercial rivals.

There are services you can use to disguise your location of course....

I feel the same way you do, just posting here to spend time while watching the news(or something) you could never get under my skin. I am insulted before breakfast more than anyone online could do.

My life is as sad and pathetic as your life is. We should be seen as brothers(or sisters). We really don't hate, we just online hate.

Seasons 2 and on (of the revival) are slightly cheezy, but the first season was just terrible.  You don't really appreciate how much money it must take to make a good show until you see someone pretend to fight a mannequin that supposedly just came to life.  Terrible writing.  Terrible acting.  Terrible production values.  The second villain is a human flattened and stretched out like a sheet of paper.  Then he fights aliens in human suits who are constantly farting.  And it's a 2 parter.  And 1 of them escapes and has to be dealt with a few episodes later.  Then came the supporting character who hit on literally everyone he met.  Pretty sure he got his own spinoff.

If you want to try it, go right to season 2.  Or season 5, if you like redheads.

There's curly fecal deposits, and straight ones. His were the latter, so it fits.

I don't think his was that uneventful. He was around a while before the Trial of a Timelord, which was a 14-episode story arc that flashed back to several adventures in various times. Granted, most of his screen time was in the high court on Gallifrey, but he and Peri still knocked around a bit, and the trial insinuated he even had a few adventures with Mel.

I always liked Six. He was bombastic and dark, but could be eclectic at times. He was definitely screwed over by the showrunners.

Because it is never stated that the caretaker is a future self. Hinted, wink wink, finger-to-nose, sure, but not stated flatly.

More to the point: the Doctor is all about re-writing time, and that whole episode was about re-writing something he remembered differently. So....

It's not copyright, it's the BBC being funded by the licence fee that is not allowed to be used outside the UK (hence advertising on this website and BBC America etc) and not allowed to use advertising funding within the UK (hence this web page being barred from being viewed from inside the UK)

Actually, listen when the letter From QE I  was read . It starts by appoinnting him Curator of the Undergallery.

The Undergallery is also the TARDIS.

I can tell by the rondels and having seen quite a few TARDISes

Seriously though. I should start a blog. The notion that it's not a tree unless someone says "It's a tree"is baffling.

Basically they sped everything up to get over the regeration hump now, at the 50th anniversary.

cretinbob: The Undergallery is also the TARDIS.


Eh? The undergallery is under the National Gallery.... I guess I missed something.

cretinbob: The notion that it's not a tree unless someone says "It's a tree"is baffling.


There is no reason to assume a tree isn't a tree. We all know what trees are.

But in the universe of a show that shows you the main character dying, explicitly tells you "Yeup! That was him dying alright!" and then turns around and says "Nope! That was just a robot filled with teensy-weensy people -- one of them the main character -- but none of them got hurt when the robot was 'killed'. So the main character is fine!" ... yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and just take everything with a grain of salt and not assume something is what I think it is on first glance, or will at least remain what I think it is for very long.

For all we know, the Curator was actually Doctor Octopus in an aged replica of The Doctor's body. Or it was one of those ridiculous Nestene plastics. Or anything else the show will decide works for their current wants at that point in time.
