So: River Song.
She said in Silence in the Library to the doctor (paraphrasing)“Oh, I’ve never seen you look so young. We haven’t even met!”
We did not see them meet again during the 10th Doctor’s lifetime.
I’m intrigued as to how she’s going to be involved in the next series.
And, if he was the 11th doctor when she knew him, then… well, how did she know him as 10?

Well, to be fair though, others in the series have recognized the Doctor, even though they had only met him in another incarnation.

(We really need to merge in all the stuff from OTCC…) raspberry

And just to make things TOTALLY SUCKY, Crafty and i have to leave for work…. downer

Ooh, yeah, I forgot about that!

Eventually I want to watch all of the original series also, so I can get to meet the other eight Doctors and their companions.

Another thought:  How many incarnations does River Song get to meet?  I mean, if they drag it out too long, the Doctor will still be fairly young-ish, but she’ll keep getting older, which would totally mess up the timeline of when she met the 10th Doctor.

What we know about the new series:
Six out of the 13 episodes are written by Steven Moffat.
One is written by Richard Curtis.
Episodes four and five feature the Weeping Angels and River Song.
grin
According to Doctor Who Magazine, Steven Moffat has shown those two episodes to his sons (lucky buggers) and there is a point, at about 15 minutes into episode four, where his son turned to him and said: “Daddy, that’s the scariest thing there’s ever been on Doctor Who.”
Can’t wait!

big surprise

On the River Song bit, I’m guessing that we don’t know as to where on her timeline she’ll be meeting the latest incarnation of the Doctor?  Plus we don’t really know how much time might’ve elapsed while the Doctor (as Tennant) had been travelling solo and may have met up with River in unseen adventures.

Yeah, I guess so. I trust in Steven Moffat (All hail the Moffat) to know what he’s doing…

Oh, SFX magazine (which I bought on a one-off, as it had an article on DW, and a cool 3-D DW cover) states outright that the series starts on the 3rd of April.
Three weeks and just under eight and a half hours!

i have enjoyed the progression over the last, what, 5 seasons?  but i must say that Eckelson? was much mor…..er….?regal? than was Tenant.  Tenant always struck me as a little ‘odd’ in that he was always racing off in another direction.  Eckleson was much calmer.  I haven’t seen the new guy do anything yet, but i was rather disappointed when i saw him at the end of last season….

what we need is Sean Connery to play the part of the good Doctor! gulp cheese

Oh, I liked both Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant, and it isn’t like Eccleston’s doctor was averse to a bit of dashing around himself - his first word in his series? “Run!”
Bear in mind, of course, that Eccleston only played the part of the Doctor for one series - who knows where he might have gone with it in another couple of years!

Considering we only saw Matt Smith for about 30 seconds, I feel it’s a little too soon to be disappointed or impressed with him. I really don’t know what to think about him, but I trust the production team to know what they’re doing - they’ve rarely let me down before.

As for Sean Connery: Just no.

I really dislike the River Song character. Plus she has a stupid name. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Steven Moffat though, so I’m sure he’ll make it work.

I really wasn’t sure about Matt Smith, but I loved his little scene at the end of the last episode. I am really looking forward to seeing what he does with the character.
