Doctor Who

For those of you who don't know what this show is about, then let me explain to you briefly. Doctor Who is a British Sci-Fi that was first produced in the late sixties. It holds the record for being the longest running science fiction television programme in the world.

Doctor Who is about the adventures of a wacky and eccentric Time Lord (alien) from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor (played by many actors), travels in the TARDIS (his spaceship disguised as a police box) usually with a companion or two.

As a Time Lord, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate when he is about to die. Matt Smith plays the eleventh incarnation. Here's a picture of him if you don't know what he looks like!

...Whoops. :sawhit:

Yes, that's more like it. The Eleventh Doctor has an odd penchance about bow-ties, suspenders and more.

Spoiler : Contains spoilers for S6 trailer! :
The Doctor's "Known Likes"
  • Bow-ties (Doctor: Bow-ties are cool)
  • Fezzes (Doctor: Fezzes are cool)
  • Stetson (S6! Doctor: Stetsons are cool)
  • Jammie Dodgers (Yes, the Doctor's weird obsession with them returns!)
  • Fish fingers dipped in custard (:o)


-- Current Episodes --
The next series to air is Series 6 which will be shown next year! Hurray! ^^
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpe1Ywz8azM = Trailer for S6!

The Doctor Who Christmas Special has finally aired in Australia so all of you fans can start discussing it! Yay! =D
I thought it was epic. :)


I wonder how many of you are all Doctor Who fans... ;)

Damn it Tap, I was planning to make this thread around Series 6! :XD:

But yes, if you haven't watched Doctor Who before, ever, then you should. There is no other show like it. :)

And Tap, remove that goddamn picture before people get the wrong idea! D:

You took too long. :P

Aha, it took Shadow about 10 months of nagging reminders hints in RP's before he finally got me to watch my first episode. If you haven't seen one, then you've got to watch at least one episode. It's a fantastic series and if you're not sucked in by the end of the episode, then you're crazy. :awesome:

Why? :XD:

Speaking of crazy, I have a friend who stopped liking Doctor Who when the 5th series came along (for some stupid reason).

Spoiler : A Christmas Carol :
And he thought that the flying fish in A Christmas Carol were a stupid idea! And he didn't like the episode. But that's mad! For what possible reason could you not like that episode. He even stopped watching half way through!

Even still, I loved it! As usual, it was brilliant and entertaining drama. ;)

Completely agree on all points! :D

Your friend probably has a problem with Matt Smith taking over from Tennant... It's weird, I know. :/

Spoiler : A Christmas Carol :
I thought the flying fish were a stupid idea orifginally but over the course of the episode, my view on them changed. ^^


And as for your friend who has the problem with Matt Smith taking over... well, how can you not like the Eleventh Doctor? He's hilarious. :XD:
Spoiler : A Christmas Carol :
I laughed when the Doctor said to Y!Karzan...

Doctor: Have you seen Mary Poppins?
Y!K: Uh... no?
Doctor: Good. That would have been a rubbish comparison.

...Something like that on those lines. :XD:

Yes, he does. He's had poor expectations from the start, and he's subconsciously forced himself to hate it.

Exactly! But it's also Stephen's writing that he's started to hate. I can't understand how he could think that. :?

But that's just tough for him. He's missing out. :P

Lol, I bet your friend never had a problem with Moffat's scripts during the Eccles-Tennant era. :) Ah, well, his loss.

Anyway, you should probably add a list of all the Doctors and their actors to the first post, Tap. ;) We shouldn't forget Matt's predessors! :)

I love Doctor Who. It's my second fav TV show. But it's a very close second.
(My No.1 fav is The Simpsons.)
Why does no one like Matt Smith? He's cool.
Do you know what annoys me? All those bloody David Tennant fanboys who make comments on YouTube like:
"lol matt smith suks bring bak david teenannt he was cool doctor who suks without dav teenannt."

DAVID TENNANT IS GONE. HE IS NOT THE DOCTOR ANY MORE. MATT SMITH IS THE DOCTOR NOW. GET OVER IT.

And what also annoys me about this is no one went like this when Christopher Eccleston left.

All the Doctor Who DVDs I have:

Classic DW: An Unearthly Child
Classic DW: The Daleks
Classic DW: The Edge Of Destruction
Classic DW: Robot
Classic DW: The Keeper Of Traken
Classic DW: Logopolis
Classic DW: Castrovalva
The Complete First Series
Series 2 Volume 5
Series 3 Volume 2
Series 4 Volume 2
Series 5 Volume 1
And the promotional disk that has The End Of Time and The Eleventh Hour.

QFT.

Little do they realize that bringing back DT would destroy the whole purpose of the show. :x

I met Tom Baker and Colin Baker (4th and 6th Doctors respectively) at a sci-fi event earlier this year, and both are big fans of Matt. :D

Anyway, my DVD Collection...

New: Doctor Who Series 1-5 boxsets

Classic (arranged by Doctor)

An Unearthly Child/The Daleks/Edge of Destruction/The Aztecs (1st Doctor)
Tomb of the Cybermen/The Seeds of Doom (2nd Doctor)
Spearhead from Space/Frontier in Space/Planet of the Daleks/The Three Doctors (3rd Doctor)
The Sontaran Experiment/Genesis of the Daleks/Destiny of the Daleks/The Leisure Hive (4th Doctor)
Earthshock/Ressurection of the Daleks/The Caves of Androzani (5th Doctor)
Revelation of the Daleks/Trial of a Time Lord (6th Doctor)
Remembrance of the Daleks/Survival (7th Doctor)
Doctor Who: TV Movie (7th and 8th Doctors)

And some Big Finish audio stories too. My favourite Classic Doctor is Five. He's like the Tennant of the 80s. :XD:

Yes, I'm a big fan of the classics. :awesome:

I watched the VERY first episode of Dr. Who. I thought the ending was kind of weird. I could TOTALLY make an abridged series of that.

"WOW! Sorry boyfriend, but I'm ditching you."

Yeah, It's not to hard. :p
