Yh, a time lord has 13 lives so 12 regenerations. However it can easily be explained away when the time comes, as Danny states on the Sarah Jane Adventures it was implied that there is no longer a cap, I mean just look at The Master!

I'm not surprised everybody chose David Tennant. tongue

I'm currently on Season 5 of the 2005 Doctor Who. Nearly through it, actually. But I'm enjoying it. It gets better and better. And now with the new episodes continuing it'll be even better! big grin

Oh by the way, they've also confirmed Joanna Page (from Gavin & Stacey) and the Zygons will be in the 50th anniversary special.

Matt Smith & David Tennant after finishing the read through for the 50th anniversary ep:

New Zygon design:


The title of the episode is called "Blue Amends" (for now, anyway), someone zoomed in on the scripts Matt & David are holding. wink

I took the poll question to mean "Who is the Doctor you grew up with?" i.e. who is the first actor that you identified as being the Doctor. My Doctor, therefore, is Sylvester McCoy.

Mine would technically be Davison (where my vote is placed), but I have more enduring memories of Colin Baker (actually I remember Perry more - serious kid crush there, didn't even understand why I fancied her yet) and McCoy (again, I fancied Ace but still wasn't sure what sexual attraction meant).

Anyway, I'll leave this here because it's a gorgeous picture of a gorgeous woman:

Personally, I favored Eccleston as the "roughest" doctor.
I had my reservations about Tennant at first, but I liked the direction he took.
I was rather underwhelmed by Matt Smith. Too goofy, too little concept of what is going on, in many episodes "just being there, getting his ass saved by others". The line between "eccentric" and "stupid" was imhO crossed too much, the Doctor shows more traits of a "clumsy sidekick" than a Protagonist. Though this must rather be blamed on the writing than the acting.

I caught up slightly on my Dr Who last night and found last week's and the previous week's both to be somewhat meh. Maybe yesterday's will be an improvement but due to the complete lack of anyone rushing here to explain how hurricane force winds removed their pedalian undergarments, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Last night's, though it had a couple of flaws, I thought was a huge improvement. I certainly enjoyed it, and reading through the production notes, Neil Cross said he wanted to evoke a classic Doctor Who episode and IMO he nailed it.
So that was good.

Certainly much better than a fortnight ago, though he wrote that as well, so hmm...

The Soviet one - yes, ZOMG Russians - and while I thought it was better than the one before... I thought it was a plot that could have fitted well with the old serial format, or at least a two-parter. The premise was excellent, but then God appeared in the flying machine. Plus a couple of contrived plot points to speed it along too quickly. I also thought, unfortunately, for the most part the Russian characters were very one-dimensional. So much more could have been done with it - not saying it had to tick every box in a submarine/Cold War thriller, because then it would probably be clichéd anyway, but what was there I don't think quite did enough.

As an aside, I thought there was almost an episode's worth in the getting from the North to South Pole. The Doctor asks the Capitan for a lift and he chuckles to himself - the truth of the matter probably being that he had crippled nuclear missile cruiser, over a 100 crewmen dead, so the first place he's going, if he's going anywhere at all, is Russia. And should he mention the Doctor and Clara to any of his superiors, then I'd imagine they may not see the light of another day... tongue

Hide was pretty awesome. The ending was abruptly cut off though which was weird...

Next week's episode is the one I've been looking forward to the most, Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS. Should contain lots of references to past episodes. And apparently Christopher Eccleston returned to voice a single line! big grin There are like literally over 20 teasers for this episode online already, such as:

Hide was decent. Journey to the Centre of the Tardis could go either way, I think. If it's a self-indulgent callback-fest with nothing that helps advance the arc or nothing in the way of a decent story, I'll be irritated.

Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS - Was a fair let down for me, I liked the heart of the TARDIS though, but the rest of the episode was mainly just corridors, and it had quite a few annoying/dumb plot holes...

The Crimson Horror - Not too bad actually, quite a "different" episode and it worked well. I liked it.

Also,

JttCotT was pretty "meh". But The Crimson Horror was more enjoyable (though thoroughly silly). I think it would have worked better as one of the classic-era serials though, taking a few episodes to tell the tale, and building up to a bigger reveal... I'd have liked to see the "ultimate intelligence" as the driving force behind "Mr. Sweet", for example. I'd also like to have seen a little more of Strax doing his thing. He's always fun.

I'm going to go play with my grenades. laff

The next episode looks like it should be fun. I'm enjoying this half-season so far.

It's been a little hit and miss, but in my opinion even the misses have still been of decent quality - except perhaps the Rings or whatstherename which didn't do a lot for me. I quite liked JttCotT. Crimson Horror was pretty good though I also agree - just like the Russian episode, also by Gattis - it could have worked better as a serial. And there were a couple of niggly plot holes again.

Makes me wonder; I know Gattis and Moffat are writing partners, but if/when Moffat steps down from running the show, will Gattis take over? smile

Gatis. With one "t".

Yeah, I think that if they let the writers explore stories like that a little more deeply, it would pay off in producing much more involving and gripping plotlines, but at the same time they wouldn't be able to build up as much of an arc through a production season. Unless they decided to run a season as one episode a week, for half of the year. Which would please me mightily but might make the production staff and acting crew feel a little overworked.

Just watched the latest episode. Answered a few things, and questioned a few things. I'm really looking forward into how they're going to roll out the next season with all this stuff. I'm just glad it wasn't a two part episode though... I would've been so annoyed if it was. Idk why lol.

But I'm really looking forward as to how they're going to play out the new doctor let alone the next season. I'm also interested in what the 50th anniversary will be like. I wonder if they'll ever release the doctor's name? Probably on the very last episode. But yes, very good season finale. Got me looking forward to the next one. wink

He's an incarnation of the Doctor that appeared inbetween the 8th and 9th Doctors, so technically he could be the 9th Doctor, making Christopher Eccleston the 10th, David Tennant the 11th and Matt Smith the 12th.

The entire "River Song is Melody Pond" plot just ruined her for me, they could have done so much better than that for her character. And now to write her out of the series in... what was it, 2 minutes? - my viewing party felt so cheated... they did not do her justice.

The addition of John Hurt must make Matt Smith the 12th incarnation as you've already put out there. There is NO WAY John Hurt's doctor is going to die. I think the ultimate showdown will be... a lot of talking: "don't do this, you're a good man!" etc. Or possibly, just preventing the moment the doctor turns evil from happening.

I don't know... it's not even fun speculating DW anymore for me. It's less sci-fi and more fantasy nowadays. I LIKE RULES, RULES KEEP ORDER. frown
