Doctor Who

So? The Doctor, dare I say, is very much an integral part of British pop culture....yet no one's mentioned it here yet!

Doctor Who has always been such a unique and iconic series, something that's part of my childhood watching the show with my family on PBS in the U.S. ...needless to say when word got out of the show's relaunch this year on the BBC, I was really excited! Too bad it won't air in the U.S. anytime soon...but still, there will be DVD's.....and there's bittorrent...

A ladyfriend of mine had downloaded the new series and I got to see the first two episodes over the summer (not bad I thought)...and the other day I downloaded a few more episodes myself! The Dickens episode was very good...and everything else I've seen has been fantastic to decently good! And Billie Piper...she's a daaaamn fine companion! :kissypoo:

What sez the rest of you that have also d/l'ed the new series or are able to watch it on the telly?

joys are often the shadows cast by sorrows...

Aha! Dr Who. I dipped in and out of the new series but I loved the Dalek episodes as they have always been my favourites. The Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee eras were my personal favourite, possibly even Peter Davidson, before they added the unnecessary comic touch that killed it in my humble opinion. A few years ago I used to enjoy Sunday mornings watching the omnibus editions of Dr Who (again the Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee eras were my personal favourite). No finer Sunday morning was to be had.

My fav villains:

  • The Daleks (brilliant, it was the merciless deaths that looked like they really hurt before you finally died that scared me most!)
  • The Cybermen - what can you say!
  • Those guys with the big heads like potatoes! LOL! Sontarans?

The Third Doctor is my favorite Doctor. I'm a major DW fan. A friend sent me teh first seven epsidoes of the new series (six more on the way soon). I watched the first five episodes and enjoyed them. the old DW magic was back.

Yes, I am a Dr. Who enthusiast! I have already purchased the entire new series on DVD. I got absolute chills when I heard the music once again! I get chills everytime I hear it. I can't believe it is back on the air and going strong!

I thought Eccelston made a great Doctor, and Billie Piper did a fantastic job of being his assistant. I hope she stays on through the next series with the new Doctor.

I loved being able to see the new series after having lived in the UK for a year and a half. I appreciated much of it so much more than I would have otherwise. For instance, I love, during the Dickens episode, when they arrive in the past, Doctor says to Rose something along the line, "Well, we are in the 1800's, but we're in Cardiff." And then the look on Rose's face! LOLOLOL

Ahhhh....if only there were a way to tape things over there, and ship them overseas...! *sigh* :praying:

I started with John Pertwee [?] but Tom Baker is THE Dr for me. I even have a scarf and a hat and when I was younger had lots of curly hair so I would always go as the Dr for halloween. I also liked Peter Davidson. I would love to see the new Drs but no such luck yet. Trying to get my friend in Canada to tape them if they rerun the newest ones.

I have the Dr sound waves for my computer. For my startup I use the sound of the TARDIS; For my closedown I use ' Do you mind not farting while I'm saving the world' [new Dr. but don't know his name] and when I empty my recycle bin the Daleks scream ' TERMINATE, TERMINATE' . :clapping:

you can pick your friends... you can pick your nose .... but you can NEVER pick your friend's nose !!

MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT!

Well the Cardiff joke is funny because they actually filmed the new series in Cardiff.

I got episodes through a friend in the USA (still wiating for the last six episodes to be sent to me since they're ready).

Pertwee has always been my favorite Doctor, probably because his episodes aired during my youngest years watching television, but he was also a superb actor. But Tom Baker is almost as much a favorite as well.

Must say the new series is very impressive! I've now seen everything except the last two episodes and the writing is fantastic. I love the wittiness, the chemistry of the actors, special effects, design, and cohesive storyline. Too bad Eccellson (sp?) only signed on for one season...the series really had some heart that I hope will continue with a new Doctor. I can't wait to get my hands on th DVD collection coming out soon!

Too bad it'll be out in the UK long before the Canadian/North American release...grr.
