Doctor Who
I know there's already a a sci-fi thread, and there have been Doctor Who threads before... but I thought it was time for a new, all-inclusive thread for anything Doctor Who.


I've been tucking into some season 28 episodes, thanks to some friends. By "friends" I mean "acquaintances," and by "acquaintances" I mean "seeders and peers using demonoid." I was gutted when I found out Christopher Eccleston wasn't going to continue with the show, but the episodes I've seen thus far show that David Tennant is turning out great as the Tenth Doctor. Billie Piper is her usual chav-tastic yet gorgeous self (see s28e01 for some cleavage action :blush: ) and the fast-moving 1 hour single episode stories continues to work well.


I'm happier than a pig in shit with Doctor Who back in production.

^^^ nah - too many of them, and some eps have been lost i believe (but dont just go on my word for that).

I havent seen the second season, but really loved the 1st. I bought the dvds of it. My fav ep was "the end of the world", in which a jukebox is referred to as an iPod, and Tainted Love is called classical music. So many great lines also: "Talk to the face"; 'Moisturise me, moisturise me!"
"Never wrestle with a pig, you both get dirty and the pig likes it."

It started out well, but I logged out about halfway through the season. Eccleston, after larging it and saying he was going to bring something different to the role, just fell back into the old "grin like a muppet and act like a kid" way of doing things. It got to the point where I was watching it and just thinking about how much I wanted to hit his face repeatedly with a claw hammer.

Billy Piper is teh hawtness, though.

In summation: meh.

Yeah I prefered last seasons Doctor, but this new guy is growing on me quickly and the amount of fan-service to the first few seasons has been brilliant this season.

The only problem I have with her is that she let that ginger twat, Chris Evans, stick his foul member in her wet bits.

in that second picture I just imagine her saying, "Ooooh, suits you sir!"

Anyway, you don't need to look hard for pictures of Billie Piper looking rough, but each to his own I guess!

Just watched part two of Rise of the Cybermen today. I actually found it quite disturbing. I can't remember the last time I was disturbed by an episode of Doctor Who. There wasn't one thing in particular that made it so, more just a bunch of stuff that added up. I was in a daze for about an hour after I finished watching it.

Torrents.

It sucks that it's only a 13 episode season. But it was a good one. Especially eps 12 and 13.

Now I got to wait till Xmas for the next episode. And even then, it's just a special.

The Xmas special, Runaway Bride is available on torrents. Good episode. But really liked the teaser at the end showing clips from the new season.

So, after having watched episode 12 of the current UK series ...


Spoiler:
Dr Who gets taken out by a Dalek, and back onto the Tardis to re-generate. Does anyone know if there is going to be a new Dr Who to replace David Tennant (IMHO one of the 2 best Drs so far)? I can't find any info about a new actor, and I know that David has been offered a huge sum to stay on next season.
