btw, I miss Rose Tyler. Don't you?

Yes, for two reasons:

1) by her second series she had gotten into the swing of things and was finally starting to 'fit in', albeit with the few trying-too-hard moments (one that springs to mind is the comment 'that's beautiful' in acclaim to the Zeppelins in Rise of the Cybermen; personally I don't think that was the right phrase to choose, and in light was imitating the Doctor's mannerisms, but, whatever floats your boat...); and

2) I partake a fancy towards her. I fall too easily for blondes.

My meory is failing me today: Who or what at the Sontarans?
Sontarans. Um the only thing i remember from them is something about them cloning. I'm pretty sure they're slodiers. And I kno they first apeared during the Fourth Doctor's era (like 1970s). But that's all I know.

Correctamundo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sontarans

I'm officially bringing back to the populace the phrase 'correctamundo'; the Doctor may not like it, but it is cool.

Allons-y, Alonzo! :-)

All right, so, I watched "Blink" again last night. Awesome stuff. :-) And as I was doing so, I noticed - on the DVD, go to Scene Selections, and hit "Next" until you get to the second page of scenes for "Blink." Then select the word "Blink" on the top-right. It's the easter egg! :-)

And very creepy.

"...I know everything you're going to say."

Woo...!

 

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.

Eek!

Can't wait for the Christmas ep of DW. Not too long left!! :D

Yeah! Jack is back in the fourth series - wonder how he comes back this time!

Tell you what, let's take a guess -

Do you think Jack will be back whilst he's travelling with Donna (Am I bovvered - Catherine Tate!) or will he comeback whilst the Doctor is travelling with Martha?

I think Jack will come back whilst the Doctor is with Donna

Well, the results of the "Best Villain" poll are pretty noncommittal. :-) Three votes for the Daleks, three votes for the Weeping Angels.

New poll: Who was the best Doctor?

NEWS!

I'm happy. Any comments?

Ohhh I didn't know this was here !! And I missed the Poll by about 35 mins but would have voted for David Tennant :)

I haven't seen any of you mention the Children in Need Special with the 5th and 10th Doctors, what did you think of that? I loved it and would love to see a full length episode with a few of the remaining ex Doctors in (except maybe 7th he ruined it for me). Anyone in the states who hasn't seen it, its on Youtube.

I posted this in the "How to make Planet earth" tutorial and david suggested I posted it here, I am new to PDN and trying to make anything and I know this needs a few effects or something, but as I say I'm new and will do something better at some point hopefully :)

TY to David for directing me here :)

You're welcome! :-) Oh, and you didn't miss the poll...I re-opened it. I'm not entirely certain why it closed...

Yeah, thanks David, for starting this thread. I became a huge fan since they started showing the show on the scifi channel, with Christopher Eggleston. I watched a little as a kid, liked Tom Baker as a doctor, but the pace of the show seemed slow. And since this is my favorite forum, it's a two in one deal! I agree the weeping angel is very scary, though a human/dalek hybrid is pretty scary too!

Back about 2 summer holidays ago, BBC 3 or was it BBC 4 decided to do 1970's week.

As part of that, they showed 3 episodes of 1970's Doctor Who. Basically, the storyline was a 3 parter - thus, 3 episodes.

It featured John Pertwee and his assistant called Jo.

I don't remember many details but I remember that it featured UNIT (or some group like UNIT!) and sort of slimy monsters and the colour green!

Saw the new trailer for "Christmas Invasion" (had to watch it on youtube 'cuz I don't live in Britain), but nothing really revealing in it. I did kinda like the shot of the TARDIS shooting out of (or maybe it was an orbit around?) the Earth(...hmm, now why is that?!?). Then Astrid "beaming" up or summin. And parts of the interior of the Titanic getting flamed. Uh... is it just me or do the aliens seem similar to the Axons (3rd Doctor era. Although, I don't think they had wings then.)

They could be, not the first return of 'classic' villains.
Although, I don't think they had wings then.
Could be a disguise, think of the Santas from the previous specials...

My roommate is playing Guitar Hero III, right? And I'm listening to him, but not really watching. He gets to a song, though, and I could swear it says "Hey, here come Daleks!"

But it doesn't, sadly.

No, it's "Hey, hier kommt Alex!"

Sad times.

New (longer!) trailer up for "Voyage of the Damned". And now, after watching this, I think that the setting of this story is going to be in the future. I mean, either that or they just don't realize the ship's flying in space :shock: eh heh...

Well, from the clothes they're wearing, I think it's set in the past, but some sort of monster sabotages the ship so it's flying in space, as they would not be breathing otherwise.

Whilst browsing through Media Center on my PC, I landed on 301 (BBCi). Guess what I saw, yes, the longer video. Anyway, I agree with Rubrica, the clothes are a bit old - fashioned yet a ship in space.

In the beginning of the video, the music that is played relates to Bad Wolf/ Rose Tyler (in my opinion) and then it changes to all that action. Could there be a link apart from the fact that we already know Billie Piper is coming back.

PS: David, when will poll be updated?! :)

All I'm going to say is: International Space Station.

Okay, I lied, I'm going to say more. Astronauts can breathe on the ISS without any breathing apparatus as they technically aren't in direct contact with the vacuum of space - they are within an air tight vessel/station. Anyway, as it is set in the future, regardless of today's technology, wouldn't you think that some sort or artificial atmosphere would have been developed? And it really doesn't matter what clothes they are wearing, high-class evening events expect similar clothing in today's times, so is there something stopping tradition following on into the future?

Furthermore, when have you ever seen the Classic Titanic with glowing blue exhausts? Ergo, set in the future.

Most of the above may not have pertinent to your quoted line, but just for clarification of setting...

Anywho, I'm well excited, and it's going to be a longer special as well at over one hour long.

Well, I was kind of thinking about that too. I mean, yes the ship probably was hijacked by aliens. I'm not arguing against that. But I was thinking that maybe it might be neoclassical. The Titanic has a logo of a sinking ship underneath a crescent moon (seen on the BBC website on the timer. Also, about a minute into the trailer the Doctor turns away from the very same logo) which I doubt the actual Titanic would have. Does anyone get what I'm saying or am I just hypercritical? Although, I do like the irony how the ship "sinks" (falls...whatever you want to call it) headfirst. Maybe it'll split in half too :)

And the Doctor is 903 years old? Didn't he say 900 last time (when was last time? I forgot..)? Shouldn't he be older?

@Rubrica: You can watch the trailer here

There has been much discussion over the Doctor's age, past and present Doctor's, so I suppose it is up to writer's will to determine his age. It was in the Eccleston episode of The Empty Child where he mentions about '900 years of phone box travel...' indicating his age to be... well... 900 years, but then at that age wouldn't you generalise? However that was over two series' ago, and with the confirmation of an age of 903, we can safely assume the utterance of '900' by the Ninth Doctor to be correct.

Aha, I knew there was an article about it somewhere: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_%28Doctor_Who%29#Age. Oh, well, it's just saying what I have above, but there is more information about the 'Classic' series deliberation on his age.
