I thought this was arg material when I saw a picture of their truck recently in a doctor who link.
no guys rory is center of universe!
he's the best companion because he the last centurion!!
You know what pissed me off? The episode where Amy waited for Rory. And it's like "I waited 20 years for you, fuck off you plod."
Rory waited for two THOUSAND years. Where the fuck did that dedication go?? Obviously Amy isn't as keen on Rory as she says.
Rory knew he would have to wait, Amy was told they would be right back.
I think the last story arc was the worst. Though I do like a lot of the episodes within the series.
It was so busy and the break added nothing. I honestly didn't care that much about River and Amy's Baby. The best episodes were the ones that dropped it completely. The finale was just strange. It's not that Doctor Who is complicated like people say, it's just trying to be far too clever.
I agree, it's cool that Moffat's trying to have some kind of plot, but if it'd just been that the Doctor was getting too big for the universe, rather than having the cracks, the silence, and River's story added into the mix, with most of it still left unresolved, then it would've been fine. Although the opening two-parter, A Good Man Goes To War and Let's Kill Hitler were okay. But they would've worked as standalone two-part episodes, and would've basically wrapped River's story up fine, there was no need to expand on it for the finale.
And if the Doctor had said something like "oh yeah, the cracks are fine now" at the end of the first series, and if the Silence had said that they were behind the cracks in the moon two-parter, then everything would be even more fine. But they didn't, and things are less fine than they could be.
The next season could be fantastic though.
i actually preferred the developing plots and two-parters much more to 'monster of the week'
When is the new series airing?
Ah, now THAT is the question that must never, ever be answered. Annoyingly, all three dramas that Jenna-Louise Coleman is in this year have mysterious air dates.
But DW is premièring in late August, so I expect it to be on TV very soon after. We know Moffat and his spoilers thing.
I've been watching Series 5 +6 again this weekend. Up to "Lets Kill Hitler" at the moment.
Glorious Who in glorious HD
What's wrong with Monster of the Week?
Hmmm, mini-arcs sound like a good idea; they should last longer than just the two-parters we usually get.
i think series 6 had a nice mix of two parters and monster of the week episodes, probably my fav series so far
I'd prefer to stop seeing so much Cybermen and Daleks and maybe some Vashta Nerada.
As an example, they can't get away with 12 episodes for one story, and still have another 33 episodes to work with - and when it ends, the next series is only one-two months away. An extreme example of classic who, there ; )
It took an extra day than I thought it would, but I concurred Series 5 & 6 in HD again, It would have been one sitting but I had work today.
The fact that they redshirted Jenny in the Doctor's Daughter is just so fucking stupid.
Aye; someone as valuable as the Doctor's daughter-sister shouldn't have a bridge dropped on her, only for her to be rezzed and get put on a bus. But at least she's still on said bus, and hopefully the bus hasn't crashed or had a bridge dropped on it, meaning she'll get off the bus and back into the TARDIS; she'd probably be an interesting companion, and give a father-daughter kind of interaction, which could possibly make both characters a bit more relatable (they are still kind of relatable in some respects) to both teenage daughters and their fathers. Also Jenny would probably be pretty much the "action girl", a character to take action when it is needed.
Also, when taken out of the Who context, the nature of Jenny being both the Doctor's sister and daughter (technically that's what she is) sounds like an important plot-point from the hit backwoods pig-farming soap opera "SUEEEEY!", winner of 7 Golden Pig Squeals as of 2011.
unfortunately only so much acting a new mother can do/should do. i wouldn't expect to see jenny returning for several years
More Timelord's based off the Doctor letting Amy and Rory sex it up in the Tardis?
Caroline John / Liz Shaw has passed away.
K-9 and company was the first spinoff. probe had liz as the star and continued beyond just one movie, but it was again 'barely a any reference to doctor who'.
I want to watch a few episodes of Classic Who to see if it's good.
What's a good episode to start on?
This might be slightly obvious but I always start at the beginning. Always.
