Default The [very cool] doctor who thread

Is it me or is the doctor becoming more popular again?

Saw my first show in 72 in England on my way to Turkey... as a kid.

It was on my local PBS station when I returned to the US in 74.

Been watching it ever since... and I don't even like horror movies... (There is almost always a monster in every episode)...

Since the 'new' series, I've not missed a show. Never cared much for the older ones but I must say, I do like so many British shows. Torchwood was another I enjoyed.
Youtube has a good amount of video from Comic Con this year when all the actors showed up. Interesting stuff. Gonna miss Amy Pond.......yummy!
Think the new series begins next week.

It's mostly the nostalgia for us 30+ somthings, I think. I mean it's still a decent show.

I was shocked that it held appeal for my 6 year old son. But, then again, each episode has some form of bad guy so, why wouldn't it.

Spoilers, dammit!

Well, crap. They are going to have a hard time finding a chick as hot as she. I still miss Rose too. Different sort of hot, but I liked her.

I miss David Tennant as well. The new doctor is fine, but there was just something about Tennant that made him the best doctor for me. It's like there were two doctors, Tom Baker, and David Tennant.

Hopefully Matt Smith will get more opportunities to show off his uniqueness.

You know, I felt the same way about Tennant when Matt Smith was coming in, but after about halfway through the first season, I definitely found a lot of respect for Smith's doctor, bowtie and all. At this point, I can't honestly say which of the two I like more - though I'll admit nothing beats the riteous fury Tennant's doctor could work up... Just thinking about how he punished the family of blood sends chills down my spine, every time.

Anyway, as to that spoiler, you can hardly read a news item about the upcoming season without reference to it... Change is almost always a good thing though, despite the fact that we Whovians tend to resist it at first.

I only got into the doctor about 2 months ago. Finished the whole "new" series in a month and now I'm working on the original. Can't want for sept 1st. Just read that they're having a youtube spinoff called "Pond Life" starting monday.

Sorry but I thought most knew that his companions never stick around long. I think they'll be there for the first half of the seaon....6 shows then the break for 2012. Well, there is the Christmas special but he's always alone. In 2013 there are 6 more with a new chick. Don't know much about her.

Never heard about Pond Life but must look it up.

I'm not much on redheads, but Karen Gillan can knock on my hotel door falling down drunk anytime she wants! Unlike that other fool, I'd actually let her in for tea!
