Well you have about a year to catch up
Ben Elton?!?

It was Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis who wrote series 1. Ben Elton took over from Atkinson for the remainder of the show.

Ben Elton made... the character likeable.

As well as more of an absolute and unmitigated bastard. Which is, when you think about it, sheer genius.

Indeed. I still don't quite understand how he did that.

I... am working on getting all of Tom Bakers stuff right now.

You're working on getting Tom Baker's stuff? Now I'm having a hard time not imagining you dressed in a ninja costume, sneaking through his back door* and helping yourself to his television.

*NOT A EUPHAMISM.

Hey you are the only one who would take that that way. And you complain about me having a dirty mind... no no

I just need time to sit down and watch the early stuff.

God damn you all and your fast posting.... Now this post is obsolete.

I quite liked the series 1 character myself. Had sort of an arthur dent vibe, like he was just trying to fit into the universe he found himself in and constantly failing at it. In series 2 he seems to fit much more naturally into the world.

I've still not seen series one of Blackadder. Not sure why. Probably warned off of it till I've seen the rest of the show.

Was that me? If so it was sound advice. If not it was probably tnuk, making it probably sound advice.

And this really is starting to feel like it should be in the Blackadder thread.

I flew through series 1, and was kindof taken by surprise by 2nd series being so very, very different. Only watched a couple of eps of it so far, and it's clearly every bit as good, mind you, I just didn't expect it and so my initial reaction was to be nonplussed. Though I did wonder at the finale of series 1 how exactly they could do a series 2; now I know. heh.

All of the series are drastically different from their predecessors.  However, his character is more similar between each series past season 1 than the difference between 1 and 2.  I prefer series 2 the most.  There are also a few different specials that take place outside of the 4 major series.

The preceding purse line is a classic Elton/Curtis combo.

"I'll wager that purse has never been used as a rowin' boat. I'll wager it's never had 16 shipwrecked mariners tossing in it."

Dissect it yourself.

It probably has at some point. I mean it's an time travel machine that's bigger on the inside it could fit a lot more than 16.

Yeah that was pretty much my thought. I tried to find a free download of just the instrumental, but... no luck. I'm definitely not downloading it with the lyrics, and I'm sure as hell not paying to download it with lyrics.

Well, try learning about that and being across the pond. Unless of course you ARE across the pond in America. In which case, nevermind because we're in the same boat.

This is from Doctor Who Official  Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/bbcdoctorwho

There's an extra special treat for #DoctorWho fans on Friday’s Children in Need… Or at least there will be if things go according to plan!

Hurray! Things ARE going according to plan! Steven Moffat’s mini-script has just hit the in-boxes of a lucky few… Must look over shoulders…


Great! We can confirm that Matt Smith will be back in the bow-tie soon because the Doctor returns on Friday night in Children in Need

We’ve seen the short script and it is NOT what you’d expect. Oh, it’s funny and fast and Doctorish and brilliant… but not what you’d expect…

Not what you’d expect, UNLESS you’re from the future. In which case, wasn’t it good? Talking of the future, we’ll have more news tomorrow…

So, it's going to be non-canon and have a different Doctor.

Having seen the Peter Cushing Who Movie, I have to say that anything which isn't canonically connected to the TV series is probably going to be slightly less amazing and "wow". It'll also likely be a critical failure even if it's a commercial success and contribute to the death of the franchise overall.

I mean, consider this: Why has there never been a cinematically-released non-canon Eastenders or Coronation Stree movie?

The only way I think this could work is if it were done like maybe a musical. That, or make it canon in the context of the TV series and use the appropriate actor(s) to play the Doctor. I'd love to see Matt Smith and Christopher Eccleston (possibly even David Tennant) running into each other, saying something with timey-wimey ramifications and then teaming up to save a doomed spaceship or rescue an alien civilisartion from the Master, or kick the psychological shit out of a battalion of Sontarans, or face a horde of cybermen, or outwit a cunning group of Daleks who have decided to wipe out Gallifrey before the Time Lords existed.

Shit yeah. That's what I want. I want to see as many Doctors as possible running around Gallifrey trying to kerbstomp the Daleks plan and prevent the timelock that turned the Time Lords into galactic douchebags. I want to see Rassilon, I want to see Omega. I want the Doctor to somehow twist time so that everything from the end of the time war forms part of a closed loop and we're left with Eccleston, the other two regenerations having happened but not happened at the same time, and three new seasons of Doctor Who starring Eccleston and... let's say Donna, Rory, and somebody new. Some kid. Because, dammit, Eccleston is fantastic and doesn't need Billie Piper staring at his arse to convey that.  Donna was the least sexualised of the RTD companions, and with everything since 2005 becoming unwound, Donna would actually be able to join Eccleston on an amazing series of bizarre adventures. Rory is far more interesting than Amy, and if he gets to go off with Eccleston for three years or so before he has to go back to Leadworth and marry her, he can develop that badassness without having had to have been a gay plastic robot for 2000 years. Some supergifted kid could be picked up at some point to provide the Doctor with an intellect closer to his own to play off of.

With new arc-episodes and things like four-parters and the sinister undertones that perhaps all is not right with the universe and the hands of the Master (Derek Jacobi) are reaching across time and space to seize the Doctor once more...

I want that. Not some non-canon interesting-but-ultimately-pointless knockoff. Might as well just go ahead and remake the entire thing from the beginning as an American series whilst they're at it.

I can see it now. Matt Damon plays the Doctor, who travels through space and time in his TARDIS, a Ford F-350 that's bigger on the inside, equipped with his trusty sonic .45.  no no
