...I don't think any of us are getting into it quite enough:
Which is why I threw it open to the DiS populus.
this series has been ace.
last series was a bit poo. first one was pretty good.
overall probably the best mainstream "drama" series produced here for many a year.
every doctor apart from Colin IM AN ACTOR Baker. I even watched the Paul McGann one but felt like you do after ugly drink infuesed sex with someone you don't like
Anyway shall I list my favourite episodes AGAIN??!?!?!!?
any with slyvester mccoy?
mccoy. his last season is probably the most interesting of them all. maybe.
curse of fenric
his dalek one (remembrance?)
that's it self destructing because it realises it's alone.
was FANTASTIC though he was the one i watched on TV. 5 doctors is my favourite ever story.
unadulterated shite on a stick.
deadly assassin or fenric are the best evers. or maybe war games if i'm feeling retro.
or alien bodies if i'm feeling obtuse.
i love doctor who more than you. fact.
jon pertwee is a helluvalot worse than baker. baker was somewhat scuppered by really bad script editing and changes at the bbc.
I think Pertwee is a good doctor actually. I think all of them have their charms, though Patrick Troughton is my favourite.
my favourite serials:
The Green Death
The Three Doctors
Caves of Androzani
Terror of the Zygons
pertwee's shit though. his kung fu is embarassing, ther stories are pretty much all the same.
except the silurians.
An acquired taste, perhaps, but some of his stories are fantastically creepy and claustrophobic.
so sue me!
(I feel shame for partaking in this discussion.)
set during the great fire of london i think?
but I like that whole UNIT era and at least he stands out from the other doctors.
but he's still a great doctor. Maybe a bit dated, but at the time he was quite the superstar. More so than most of the other doctors.
tenure is the whole run of episodes where the master would turn up every week and they'd need to work together to solve the situation. then the master would escape.
it got very scooby doo.
saw John Sim (The new Master) at the South Bank Centre sitting with Bob Stanley from St Etienne. Being discerning music fans, they were attending the KPM Allstars show and not the Jarvis/Pete love-in next door.
at the disney jarvis thing - he was hanging out with a cyberman
whats a dalsk?
ask that Chris Budgen fella
would be with the Doctor (David Tennant) and The MASTER!!! (John Simm)
dr who fans dont have sex.
the statues episode.
THE DAEMONS -
Pertwee's finest hour is when he pretends to be a welsh milkman - genius!
he got regenerated to his younger self in the books.
about if the books are canon or not?
because surely human nature means that now they're pretty much not.
it's immediately after that when he pretends to be a female welsh cleaner.
"Where's Jones The Milk?" - beautiful - Pertwee had the first 'sexy' assistants and the Whomobile and Bessie - what MORE DO YOU WANT???
And the best ever Master ever. Why wasn't I born to see it all the first time>?!>?!?!
was Derek Jacobi. He was only the master for about 2 minutes back in June 2007 but his transformation from kindly old duffer to nasty old shit was brilliant.
Anyone ever see the TV series of Mr Pye with Derek Jacobi?
The worst master ever was Eric "My sister is Julia" Roberts.
i had my photo taken with pertwee, sarah jane and bessie when i was about eight. that makes me cool.
plus, the first sexy assistant was probably zoe. so nurrrr. maybe even polly.
no one ever says that about poor Harry from the early Baker ones do they?
Green death with the silly giant flies?
The Sea Devils definately has the best Radiophonic workshop soundtrack ever - who needs the Silver Apples?!?!?
but ace condom maggots.
harry sullivan's dead :(
and no, zoe was definitely hott before jo grant appeared.
and liz was a cadaver of some description. so shut yo mouth.
and the Brigadier had an eye patch. Oh God I'm a geek. Yes he died didn't he - he seemed like a jolly character -= wasn't he in the Sontarian Experiement, the only ever Dr Who 2 parter (at the time)
OH GOD IM A GEEK!
had 2 parters later on, tho i suppose 1st before then!
but there were plenty of two parters over the years. they tended to do a two and then a six.
Jamie was in it and everything!
experiment the first? i'm not so sure.
i'm not saying jo wasn't sexy. i'm saying she wasn't FIRST.
yes, you are a geek. i'm not though. i'm cool. i've sat in bessie.
Oh please dont say me! or Rappers either! LEt's all agree on Theo.
Now its time to re-evaluate Chris Eccleston who I liked. And do some work and live life like an adult.
but some of the scripts and directing was very poor. and he never seemed particularly doctory.
sort of what I said.
Let's form a club!
I think *some* of the episodes he was in were a bit shit and didn't play to his strengths.
Now I'm a proper nerd!
I hang my head in shame
lalla ward is married to richard dawkins.
doesn't that make him a viscount?
Really fucking nice biscuits
she was the Scrappy Doo of Doctor Who -I was at the raging hormones age but STILL she annoyed me. Go away, ace, and stop calling the Doctor 'Professor'
THere were about 5 good Eccleston ones and I don't think he had time to 'settle' as he got too 'dark' and 'sad' too quickly.
stupid name tho
had hairy armpits. I know: I freeze-framed a scene in Dragonfire.
Melvin and Maureen's Music-a-grams.
Apparently, Sylvester McCoy was nearly in Lord of the Rings AND Pirates of the Caribbean.
He's the nearly man of...everything.
ace was no worse than any of the others.
bonnie langford however deserved to die.
and eccleston wasn't dark enough.
had even been invented! Or something?
she didn't have hairy armpits!
and looked like some sort of spin off Grange Hill character. Bonnie Langford was just an in-joke surely
And don't forget TEGAN!!!!
Adrick (sp?) was shit though.
They ran the credits without the theme when he died out of respect or something. TV makers are silly.
I think its when he used his 'gold' to kill a Cyberman or got left on a ship to crash into the sun - Theo?
Adrick got killed by a cyberman.
oh dear the self-loathing is kicking in now.
and cyberman are scared of gold. I kept shouting this at the screen in the last series. Silly men.
then used his maths genius to fly a ship back in time and crash into earth, killing him and the dinosaurs.
the new cybermen probably wouldn't be scared of gold.
he was very fey and posh wasn't he?
The new cybermen irritated me a bit - and the daleks have never impressed me that much - and where is Davros??!!?
the cybermen episodes were absolutely dreadful. really really bad.
and i think the daleks have been detoothed so quickly it's shit.
"dalek" was pretty ace though.
They should bring back the Zygons and Zuteck!!!!
i thought zutek was going to be in that satan pit story. then i thought fenric might be. then it was a big rubbish cgi thing.
So many episodes have good ideas and then they just collapse - like the Peter Kaye one and one with the girl who 'captured' people in her drawings - terrible!
there are plenty of bad ones, but some are just genuinely excellent.
about a month ago, it was laughable, ive never seen someone who thinks acting is just opening your eyes really wide. Also the cheapness really grates on me. Its embarrassing.
some of it's really really good. the odd episode is dreadful.
it was like watching an aggro space episode of Press Gang
Eccleston's only fault was wearing a t shirt - otherwise he was good and his 'meloncholy' made me feel sad.
and not even in a funny way (I note no 'question mark' on Tennant's shirt collars)
