Like I'm writng in my fanfic, you do have to wonder, would living that many lives, dying and regenerating, not have a detrimental effect on a being, even a Time Lord. 

Also, are the Looms that were mentioned in the Virgin imprints considerd to be canon by the BBC, or is that still considered speculation at this time?

Oooh, a TOTPD dance in the TARDIS.

The Looms and whatnot would have been canonical if the show had continued, because Marc Platt's Cat's Cradle and Lungbarrow were originally supposed to have been TV stories.  It's odd: Andrew Cartmel and his writers said they wanted to bring the mystery back to Doctor Who, but to do so they planned to reveal the Doctor's origin.

I personally hope the new series says nothing about any of that.

I don't know, yes there were some FX that was not as good as some of the effects on other shows, including American one's like Star Trek, LIS, and other's.  Then again, for the money that they spent on episodes, there were some effects that were much better than on those shows.  Doctor Who has gotten this rep of bad effects over the years, but I don't think that they're any worse than some other shows from the same time period. 

Now, with that said, the stories on Doctor Who kicked a lot of butt over the years, and I'll still pick one of those old eps over something like ST: Enterprise, which may have good fx, but fairly crappy writing, in my opinion of course.  wink

Okay, I got what you meant now.  smile

I do understand from Outpost Gallifrey that the BBC is planning to throw a lot of money at the new episodes, though I hope they spend some of that on writing as well, not just FX.
