    Doctor Who

    Any Doctor Who fans here? Or is it just me?

    I was wondering if anybody here had been watching the new series. It's getting close to the end of the season here in Australia - I've liked it so far, although I have my reservations about Christopher Eccleston, and I'm looking forward to the new doctor (David Tennant) next season.

    That episode set in World War II, with Captain Jack and the kid with the gas mask was a cracker though. Is there anybody else watching it, and if so, what do you think so far, and what are your thoughts comparitive to the original series?

    I quite like it SL.

    I can't compare from the orginal to the new one though.

    One of my favourite quotes is in the episode when they travel 5 billion years into the future and the Doctor says: "If you think that was impressive - think how big the phone bill will be." Was when Billie Piper rings her mum 5 billion years in the past - or present day.

    Been watching it since the first-ever episode.

    Which 'original series' are you talking about? The first 3 years when William Hartnell played the great man?

    Well, he and the other guys that played the first seven doctors. I was comparing the one put together this year with the original run from '63-89.

    I actually quite like the new series, although my preference is for the Jon Pertwee/Tom Baker material of the 70's. I had a bit of a soft spot for Colin Baker though, and parts of the new series have felt a little similar in tone to some stuff from that era (to me, anyway). I hated McCoy though, and felt that he killed the show.

    I can't confess to watching much of this series or ones previously but I like what the new Doctor (for next series) has said about how he wants to appeal to the masses through his 'geek-chic' which I think is accurate, the Doctor should have something of 'The Geek' about him a little more than Chris Ecclestone manages I reckon.

    I've not seen many of the originals but this series just seems to be a little off-the-wall for my liking, random stuff happening which I don't think is great TV but that might just be because every time I see Billy Piper I have nightmares of 'Because We Want To' jump into my head.

    Do you call them "nightmares"?

    Yeah, now and then things get a little too camp. However, I thought "The Unquiet Dead", "Father's Day" and "The Empty Child" were pretty cool. Eccleston ("every planet has a North") didn't feel like The Doc that much to me, either. The new guy's outfit looks far more the part - apparently a third season has just been commissioned, so they've got some time to develop a fair story arc if they so desire.

    Yeah, the episode has put me to sleep by that point.

    I only watch the ones with Tom Baker as the Dr. here in Canberra when I was a boy, you could watch Lost in Space and then turn it over for Dr Who.

    I had a friend whom wrote a Dr Who story (publishers sent guide lines) but they rejected it. I proof read it for her and thought it quite good.
    You know it makes sense.
