I loved the soundtrack*;  the way that the main character was portrayed as geeky but in a genuinely affectionate way; the humour; Peter Kay (an incredibly funny comedian and it made a nice change to see him 'out of character'); and the way that it showed the script can stand not having the main characters once in a while. Oh, and loved the sly fellatio reference at the end  :wink:

Billie Piper is leaving (see story HERE but not until the end of the season. In The Satan Pit, she was forewarned that she would die in battle... I guess she will be killed off, then.

Do you ever get the feeling you are out of context?

Look at this site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/episodes/2006/index.shtml

The Doctor is a quintessential English TV character. Who is enjoying something of a revival in the USA and Canada.

Has anyone seen the animated cartoons on the website? They're great. ^_^

Now I got it. It was broadcast in Italy for a few episodes many years ago, but turned out to be unsuccessful.
Thanks for the input.

Yes, it was garbage for quite a few years. The last two seasons have been fantastic, however.

Tennant is just to young in my mind to play the Doctor. I just don't like him that much, next they'll be knocking on my door for me to play the 11th. 

I thought the same thing to when I heard CE was calling it quits after season one

But once I got to watching him quest is right he has done a good job as the 10th Dr


I gave him a chance and now I like him in the role IMO

Yes, he's doing a great job so far.

I would really like to be able to see some of the animated Who shows one day.

In fact, I read somewhere that they are restoring a Pat Troughton Who episode using animation.

most healthy men, should.  :P

i notice they have a lot of sly, refrences...that's part of it's charm, they make you think instead of passively watch.

i wonder if they'll replace her and who with?

i liked her character, too much make up though.

I haven't liked her so much this season; she is too "in yer face" for a Dr's companion. (Natch, Sarah-Jane was/is my fave... :wink:)  Plus she really needs to sort out her eyebrows!! I can't watch her without staring at them. I keep expecting them to crawl off and hide behind her ears in the scarey moments. She is also a lousy actress. We joke here when watching it about which of her three expressions will be used the most in a given episode. And my final dig at her... In Wired she started the episode wearing 50s dress and a pair of groovy shades.... And all I could hear in my head was

One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
Coming on to bring you the Banana Splits Show

Tra la la, la la la la, Tra la la, la la la la

She WAS Bingo!

it's scary how much you and my husband do seem to have in common with doctor who, sarah jane was his favorite companion too, but tom baker was his favorite doctor, my dad watched dr. who too...he hasn't seen the new stuff.

maybe it's true, girls end up marrying men like their fathers!?!?!

i'm not clear on the bingo refrence however...i've played bingo and know bingo was a farmer's dog, but that's about all.
