This thread is all about Doctor Who, so we DW fans don't have to keep hijacking the <offtopic> thread.

Discuss Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures here!

NOTE: No spoilers, please. Tag it with a spoiler tag. Thank you! This should provide the best enjoyment for us all. Select the quote to read it. :-)

NOTE: Rumors are not spoilers. Just post them like normal.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Good title :D.

Speaking of which, Who* agrees that The TARDIS is the ultimate ship in sci-fi? Nigh indestructible/impregnable, power to traverse time and space, ability to utterly change it's exterior appearance to almost any shape or form (thus camouflage), dimensionally transcendental (the recognisable 'bigger on the inside'; entirely configurable interior with the capability of holding an entire city's-worth of space, plus more), translate virtually any language, borderline a living being and with it coming all the advantages of being so - active thought, telepathic link to occupants, etc. - completely passive yet still sufficiently defensive, being the sole legacy of an unbelievable race...

... oh yes, stolen property...

Tell me, Who wouldn't want a ship like that?

*so bad, I know.

Is "The Sarah Jane Adventures" any good?

New series of doctor who soon, surely!

The last 2 eps of SJA were awesome. Mr Smith is an enemy and the Slitheen made a comeback.

Stop saying too much info! Yes, it is a good episode, but what about the people who don't want to know what happpens yet?

indie88: Yes, it's very good.

It sounds like a facinating show. Is it still on air?

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

Helio:

Hmm, not sure about the Americas, I know it isn't on for the UK until next year, then again the US are one (?) season behind us so airing could be different. Better answered by david or another US DW fan.

It is a good watch, nonetheless. The only downside is the lack of TARDIS focus, it's always left behind or cut-off from the protagonists, however there are rumours flying around that forthcoming episodes may show other parts of the most recent TARDIS 'incarnation'. Also rumours of a full scene showing a person running from the outside to the inside without a change of shot from location to set, if that made any sense. Good stuff.

@Myrddin: Yes! The TARDIS is my dream machine. If I could have anything, it would be that.

The mythos is amazing, too. I like how it's entered the public consciousness in the UK.

Doctor Who is showing in the US on the SciFi channel, about six months or so behind the UK broadcasts - they're just now showing the end of the third series (We'd call it a season). I ordered the DVDs from Amazon.

If your interest is piqued, I'd recommend viewing an episode or two on YouTube. :-) Once you're hooked, order the DVDs. (Not if, but when.)

@Vista?: The new companion for the fourth series is Donna, the bride from the Series 3 Christmas Special. AFAIK.

@Everyone: I added a new notice about spoilers to the first post. Take a look.

After all, they turn you into stone.

Actually, if I remember correctly, no, they can't. As it's been a while since I saw the episode...

Wiki aticle!

They can only petrify if one Angle were to look upon another.

Personally, I'd rather be killed by a Dalek than sent back in time and forced to live my life elsewhere. Call me petty, or stupid, but I'd prefer to endure a few seconds of pain at the hands of the Dalek than years of the emotional pain of loss via the Angles. Although, wouldn't I be condemning the Angles by taking away their sustenance? Not really. There are always other people to 'kill'.

Sorry vista, this makes it sound like I'm disagreeing with you for the second time, I'm not doing it purposely :).

It'd be interesting, but it's a completely untrue rumor. As far as I've heard, David Tennant is contracted to play the Doctor for the foreseeable future - and I'm quite happy about that.

Besides, John Simm has mentioned that he greatly dislikes working on a production more than once.

Weeping Angels are the most frightening villains ever. Though I'd rather be one of their victims than a victim of any of the other choices, I'd rather be stalked by any of the others than the WAs. At least with the Daleks, you know when they're coming. :-)

Yeah, how could anyone miss the Daleks? They literally yell (quite monotonously) "exterminate!" everywhere they go.

And after this season of Doctor Who there'll be a three year hiatus. But, uh.. will the Master coming back again afterwards? I don't want him to just end up vanishing for the rest of the run... But I don't want him to be hyper either :) ..

Citation? I only ask because of this:

David Tennant is confirmed to star through to 2009. However, during the latter half of 2008, Tennant is committed to a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet. After the 2008 Christmas Special, three Bank Holiday specials have been commissioned to air throughout 2009.[7][8] The programme will then return in 2010 with a fifth full series. Russell T Davies has suggested that the programme is expected to follow this pattern, of full series interspersed with occasional year-long breaks, for some time into the future.[9]

[8] - http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/...article2379603.ece

[9] - http://www.guardian.co.uk/...html

No mention of a hiatus.

Oh, wait, were you referring to one of those strange American airing syndication...things?
