A thread dedicated to everyone's favourite time-and-space travelling two-hearted 900 year old Gallifreyan.

Very much enjoyed the Comic Relief 'mini adventure', really looking forward to the new series ... and am off to a Who convention the Sunday of the May Day weekend, such is my geekery.  :geek:

I grew up on 70's Who (still have the VHS's) and Jon Pertwee will never be bettered in my opinion. The scene above scared the s*** out of me. laugh


Favourite serials :
Spearhead From Space
The Ambassadors of Death
Death to the Daleks
The Sea Devils




The Jaggeroth has to be the best monster/villain, daleks aside of course. City Of Death was a terrific Tom Baker story too. The new stuff doesn't really do anything for me, although I enjoyed a few of the Christopher Eccleston stories (particularly the first one with the return of the Autons!) I remember the Peter Cushing spin off films were quite good. And I'm a TORCHWOOD addict. Looking forward to that coming back.

I like the new guy, but can't stand his companions. Aside from providing something for the dads to lust over, Amy Pond is bloody annoying.

But Matt Smith appeals to me. I like his calmness and his weirdness. Shades of Troughton. I liked Tennant, but the whole bug-eyed look got rather tiresome after a while, and the Rose Tyler Mary-Sue Fangirl squee ending was just lame. Yes, I got flamed to a cinder on the old Outpost Gallifrey for it, but I stand by my opinion - it was bloody awful.

I do wish Christopher Ecclestone had been given at least one more series. I liked his German U-Boat commander look.

Closet Nazi, this one. :suspect:

I like Eccestone, but I think he probably bankrupted several toy manufacturers who'd geared up for a long production run. He should be ashamed - the dollmakers of Shanghai depended on him.



My favourite Dr Who doll was Jo. She did it with Daleks, y'know.

Yes, it begins at Easter; the series is 'split' for the first time - there's to be 7 eps ending in a big 'cliff-hanger', and then the remaining 6 will air in the autumn.

Of the New Doctor Whos (since the re-launch), I liked Tennant best.

Is Ecclestone the one who looks like a guido? He looks so out of place when you put them all together. It's like watching a college professor have a brief mid-life crisis before going back to being a college professor.

In the pic of the action figures at the top there, Eccleston's the one in the lower row with close-cropped hair and the leather jacket.

Prefer both Tennant and Matt Smith to him ... he was always too 'ordinary bloke from Manchester' to me.

That was a great line, and he did have some cracking episodes ... but I like the air of 'slightly mad boffin' that both Tennant and Smith brought/bring, I feel it's a better 'fit' for the Doc. :)

Ah yes, but Nine had just come out of the Time War, having blown up his own people and the Daleks. He had the right dark edge of desperation and depression for that. Always wanted to give him a hug.

Actually, Rave's crap at hugs. She only puts up with 'em for the hard stuff.

Wasn't insinuating that you wanted to find out if the hearts are all he has 2 of or anything, Rave ... :lol!:

I can see how two hearts would be useful. All that blood to pump, after all.

I hear tell that Billie Piper's nickname for David Tennant was "David Ten Inch".

And there's nothing wrong with my hugs, Ambler. It's just they pale into insignificance when compared to the next stages. :D

Hoping the weeping angels come back...best new addition to the baddie list in my opinion.

^ Agreed ... although the monsters in both of the new series trailers I've seen all seem to be 'new' (creepy 'dolls', clown etc). No sign of the Daleks or Cybermen ... hmmm.

For any Who fans able to get there, I'd just like to add that the Doctor Who Experience at London's Olympia is well worth a visit. :D

The Weeping Angels were magnificent. A wonderful invention. My favourite kind of Evil - something mundane and everyday. Marvellous. Had me screaming into the cushions.

Chris Nolan and David Goy.... sorry Steven Moffat wrote:
'This is The Doctor's darkest hour. He'll rise higher than ever before and then fall SO much further.'

F*ck I hate NuWho. Utterly lacking in charm and wit. All slick, Americanised with high production values, but with no soul.
