  1. I remember when he took over from Richard O'Brien on the Crystal Maze and being gutted but then thought, oh well, it's just like the Doctor regenerating. And he was shite. Bring back the Maze with Reckless Rick.
  2. Someone over at Outpost Gallifrey speculated that Rose is freaked out by the regeneration and tracks down SJS to talk about her experience with the Doctor. Could work. And I'm with you biglime, we knew it was coming but still...
  3. Apparently The Sun is reporting the return of K9 and Sarah Jane Smith.
  4. And he's a fan too, even got a letter printed in DWM this month.
  5. I doubt we'll see them for a while, I think even RTD has mentioned something along the lines of not being able to do much with them after this series. I don't want to see them wheeled out every year, they're much more effective when used sparingly. It's been a great return for the Daleks but now it's time to get excited about the return of the lads from Mondas. Can't wait.
  6. A great end to a great series. Goodbye Nine Hello Ten
  7. Pilot Wings 64. It may not be pretty anymore, it may not be stress free, but by God it's fun. Edit: It may not offer you lazy walks along hazy beaches but you'll look a lot cooler if you hit all the rings. The birds love it.
  8. It's great! A mixture of clay animation and CGI, only about a min long but still funny. It's listed as Earthshock part five, even has the title sequences and lists Adric as being played by a lump of clay. How apt A great DVD overall, there's a good documentary about the story and the option to watch with new CGI special effects, which ain't as grand as it sounds except for the effect of the ship crashing into Earth which is very good. Well worth buying.
  9. Waterhouse still needs a smack, especially when you hear him ripping the piss out of Michael Robbins' acting on the Visitation DVD. I loved the little animation extra on the Earthshock DVD where he's thrown free of the ship as it crashes only to get eaten by a dinosaur. Nice confirmation that the little ponce is definitely, 100% dead.
  10. The commentaries on the Davison DVDs are great fun aren't they? Especially Janet Fielding ripping the piss (but in a fond way). If she's not cringing at her performance she's complaining about her hair and clothes. Brilliant to listen to. She was interviewed in DWM recently with pics. I still would.
  11. It was great wasn't it. I loved the slight movements the main Dalek made when it was making it's speech (it's obviously got the dt's), a nice touch back to the old series where the Daleks used to boogie so you knew who the fuck was talking.
  12. Spoilers from Doctor Who Magazine...
  13. It predates Davros by a long time. Edit: In terms of appearing in the show.
  14. Aye, Davison's Doctor was good, certainly the most 'human' Doctor. I've got a soft spot for Pertwee though especially his first season, I'd have loved to have seen the series carry on in that vein for a while. Doctor Who and the Silurians and Inferno are two of my favourite stories. And he had the best Master. Anthony Ainley was OK, but c'mon, Roger is the daddy.
  15. Absolutely. There's a lot of scope in the Cyberman premise for some cracking stories about the loss of humanity and identity as shown (or heard) in Spare Parts. FishyFish is bang on to highlight the scene with Yvonne... if I remember correctly her processing was interupted by a powercut leaving her not fully converted to the Cyber race. Chilling to listen to. Oh and Troughton is brilliant. I love his Doctor, like Biglime said, it's a disgrace that so many of his stories were trashed by the BBC. Cultural vandalism. Another thumbs up for The Seeds of Death... a classic Who base under siege story. There's lots of Troughton episodes (where the stories are incomplete) on the Lost in Time DVD. The opening episode of The Web of Fear is fabulous.
  16. o/\o That's exactly the reason I'm looking forward to it so much. Such a shame it's his only episode this season and next.
  17. Since David Tennant was announced as the next Doctor I've really been looking forward to season two. Not that I'm unhappy with CE's performance, he's given the show a real shot in the arm, which is great because if the show died on it's arse it would never return. It's a shame he won't be coming back but I'm almost looking forward to a regeneration. Regen stories were always an event to look forward to and it's such a shame it couldn't have been kept secret, we'd have been staring open-mouthed at the TV as the Doctor changed. Like I've said before, I hope the 'bad wolf' thing doesn't get wrapped up at the end of this season but carries over to the next Doctor. I'm just really looking forward to seeing how the Doctor will change.
  18. Another good episode with some traditional Who corridor running, action scenes and laughs. I thought Mickey lifting the lid of the kitchen bin to check it was safe was funny. Nice to have UNIT referenced without getting bogged down by continuity. Next week's looks spiffy!
  19. It's a shame that so many of Troughton's stories were junked, the surviving episodes of The Web of Fear and The Faceless Ones are great fun. You can see them on the Lost in Time DVD, well worth watching if you like early Who. A bit of Weng-Chiang trivia: John Bennet (Li H'sen Chang) died on 11th April this year and Trevor Baxter (Professor Litefoot) is currently in the more th>n TV ad. Invaluable info for you there.
  20. o/\o I'm really looking forward to seeing how they make the Daleks scary again. Nicholas Briggs is doing the voices and he's nailed it in the Big Finish stuff he's done. Written by Rob Shearman too... nuff said.
  21. I enjoyed it, yeah there was some weak FX here and there but that really doesn't bother me. I though the scenes of the ship crashing were great. I liked the Blue Peter 'make your own alien spaceship cake', it even had jelly babies! I watched the BP clip on The Dalek Invasion of Earth DVD the other day where they made a Dalek out of slices of bread. Classy.

    You're missing the guilt factor that we all secretly want to feel when we close our DS knowing that the little chap we've been grooming, throwing balls for, taking for a walk etc is pining for us... The stickers make us feel like bad parents... Oh just ten more minutes then.

  24. Indeed! From Outpost Gallifrey... David Tennant will take over from departing actor Christopher Eccleston for the second series of "Doctor Who" to be aired in 2006, according to a BBC press release issued Saturday morning. Tennant was originally rumored to be "in talks" to take over the role from Eccleston, who it was announced in late March would not be returning for the second season. As the Doctor, Tennant will be seen in the role in this year's Christmas special, as well as continuing in the role throughout the entire second series (and hopefully, many years to come.) Billie Piper, who plays Rose Tyler, is already signed on for the second year of adventures. And from the official press release... David Tennant confirmed as the tenth Doctor Who David Tennant is confirmed as the tenth Doctor Who, it was announced today by Jane Tranter, BBC Controller of Drama Commissioning, following the recommissioning of the second series. Tennant, whose recent credits include BBC THREE's critically-acclaimed drama series Casanova, BBC ONE's Blackpool and He Knew He Was Right, will star alongside Billie Piper who returns as Rose Tyler. Julie Gardner, BBC Head of Drama, Wales says: "Christopher Eccleston has given an exceptional performance as the ninth Doctor. "David Tennant is a great actor who will build on the excellent work already done by Christopher in establishing Doctor Who for a new generation." David Tennant says: "I am delighted, excited and honoured to be the tenth Doctor! "I grew up loving Doctor Who and it has been a lifelong dream to get my very own TARDIS. "Russell T Davies is one of the best writers television has ever had, and I'm chuffed to bits to get the opportunity to work with him again. "I'm also really looking forward to working with Billie Piper who is so great as Rose. "Taking over from Chris is a daunting prospect; he has done a fantastic job of reinventing the Doctor for a new generation and is a very tough act to follow." Executive producer/writer Russell T Davies adds: "Christopher Eccelston's wonderful Doctor has reinvented the role, so that it now appeals to the best actors in the land. "I'm already writing David's first new adventure on board the TARDIS! "Regeneration is a huge part of the programme's mythology, and I'm delighted that new, young viewers can now have the complete Doctor Who experience, as they witness their hero change his face!" A new 13-part adventure and Christmas special begins filming in Cardiff in the summer for transmission on BBC ONE.
