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…) 😛

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

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.
😊
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!

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.

Is it going to be on SciFi channel in the US or only on BBCAmerica. I ask because BBC America is no longer part of my cable package. In the past it was on SciFi but 2wks after it aired on BBC. I don’t mind waiting the 2 weeks, but will be sad if I don’t get it on any channel.

I like this quote from the article:

:lol:

Razela, I don’t know if it will be on the Sci Fi channel.  Just went and checked out their site, and they don’t mention anything about the new season.

Ok, I have the new copy of Doctor Who Magazine in my hands, and since I can’t find the information on the first five episodes online anywhere, I’ll type it out here.

Episode 1: The Eleventh Hour.

In a nutshell: Box falls out of sky. Man falls out of box. The Doctor is in no fit state to save the world today. He’s only just regenerated. His sonic screwdriver is bust. The TARDIS has crashed and burned, and lies wrecked in someone’s back garden.
But an alien convict has escaped. Planet Earth is in terrible danger. The patients on the coma ward of the local hospital in Leadworth, near Gloucester, have been seen wandering around the village - how is that possible? And what’s with that strange crack in the wall, curving like a crooked smile, and the distant, echoing voice coming from within?

Episode 2: The Beast Below

In a nutshell: For Amy’s first trip in the TARDIS, the Doctor whisks her far into the future. The human race clings to survival deep among the stars, while sinister Smilers rule over their every actions. But a terrible secret threatens to bring their fragile society tumbling down…

Episode 3: Victory of the Daleks

In a nutshell: It’s the Second World War, and Britain has developed a new weapon: metal soldiers, built like miniature tanks, designed by an ingenious professor. They’re called Ironsides, they’re deadly, and they’re here to help.
But the Doctor knows that’s all a lie. They’re the Daleks, and they have their own agenda. But why don’t they recognise him? Why are they subservient to Churchill? And what is the purpose of the Progenitor? This time, there might not be a happy ending…

Episodes 4 & 5: The Time of Angels / Flesh and Stone

In a nutshell: Remember River Song mentioning the “Crash of the Byzantium” in Silence in the Library? Well, in this story, that happens: the Byzantium space ship crashes into an abandoned temple. This is no simple disaster, but a Code Red nightmare, as the Byzantium is carrying a Weeping Angel in its vault. River Song elaborately recruits the Doctor and Amy to join her and a party of cleric-soldiers for a journey into dark catacombs cheerily known as “a maze of the dead”. Cue joyous tea and scones, with nothing bad happening to anyone at all…

Also, there’s some good new stuff on the BBC’s Doctor Who page.

Less than 24 hours to go!

Ok, but no one give away bits before Sunday ok? Or the Sunday after whenever it airs in the US which I think is in a couple of weeks. I’m going to be watching it every week with a couple friends on Sunday nights.

Unless years from now you end up being whisked away as one of the Doctor’s companions in his TARDIS, eventually appearing back on Earth on April 3rd, 2010, and in a conversation inadvertently give away a crucial plot point.  It’s not likely to happen, sure, but it could happen. . .

We’re not getting it until midnight on April 16.  And then we can only watch it on ABC’s iView website, which needs a faster internet connection than what I’ve got. :down:

ETA: And I’ve just discovered that the ABC will be showing it two days later on it’s primary channel.  So, we’ll only be two weeks behind the UK!  Yay!

Oooh, so, SO good.
I am glad my fears were unfounded. Eleven really is the doctor.

Personally, I feel that the show lost its spark over the last couple of years. This episode was, in my opinion, better than most of the episodes shown over that time period.

It will probably be a few years before I watch it.  So you can’t talk about it until, oh, 2015 or thereabout.

[quote author=“Boo” date=“1270342761"Personally, I feel that the show lost its spark over the last couple of years. This episode was, in my opinion, better than most of the episodes shown over that time period.

I agree, I don’t know if for the same reasons though.  I haven’t watched the new episode yet.  The show seemed to be to be getting very dark, the thing I liked about the show in the past is it dealt with serious issues but was still light and funny at the same time.  Lately it just seemed everyone was grim and downtrodden about what had happened and what was going to happen.  I don’t really get into shows too deep, I watch for purely entertainment value, so I may be way off of what others feel.

I don’t know if they were “darker”, per se, but they were certainly heavier.  I think the reason behind that is that the writers seemed to have been showing us more of the doctor’s motivations and personality.  Kind of fleshing out the character, so to speak.  And I enjoyed (most of) it.  I liked being able to see why the wheels inside his head were turning the way they were.  What his motivations were.  Why he was alone.

“I’ve travelled with others before.  I’ve lost them.  I’ve lost ALL of them.”

Too true. :down:

I watched it last night, I really didn’t find it scary in anyway.  It was OK.  I think as long as they continue to have good writers for the show it will remain a good show.

I’m watching it now.  I’m probably going to download it later, and watch it without commercials.

And…steampunk-y….hmm.  Don’t know if I like the new look yet.

My cousin, on his Twitter feed, said:

Sorry to say, latest Dr. Who episode (“Victory of the Daleks”) was a dud. Afraid the 2005 SF renaissance is just about played out.

And this coming from a huge Dr. Who fan.  (My grandmother knitted him a Dr. Who scarf many, many years ago when we were… however old we were when the Doctor wore the scarf. And he says he still has it.)

But take that as you may. Some people will obviously like shows better than other people will.

I quite enjoyed it (whilst ignoring some plot holes). Couple of good twists in it.
I’m going to have to disagree with your cousin, Tah.

Well, series one of the new doctor, series five since the 2005 reboot, series whatever of the whole thing. Series Fnargh, as I believe Stephen Moffat is calling it.

I must say, I’m not as big a fan as this new guy as David Tennant. Matt Smith just doesn’t have a very expressive face, especially in ‘The Beast below’. He seems to just have a dopey, puppy look and a blank look. I’ve enjoyed the new episodes, don’t get me wrong but 10 will always be *my* Doctor I think.

And as for the last couple of series being ‘heavier’ or ‘darker’, that’s why I’ve enjoyed them so much 😊

Yeah. As quirky as the last guy was, I think the writers did a very good job of letting us get “to know” him.  this new guy seems to have all of the wrong responses to things. (Like he is over-acting.)  Maybe I am just still missing the old Doctor. (Like losing an old friend, kinda.) And isn’t the Doctor supposed to remember everyone he has met in every incarnation?  Because he has been through many of these situations (or ones very similar) before….  :down:

I miss Christopher Eccleston. Other than one of the early Doctors (tall gent that always had a funky scarf) he was my favorite.  He just seemed so .... expressive.  The new guy is so ..... geeky. (And seems cocky and arrogant as well….) :down:

Yeah, Tom Baker’s one of my favourite incarnations of the Doctor, too.  Partially because he’s probably the first Doctor I can remember watching!

An interesting compendium on the history of and details about The Doctor and his enemies/companions/tardis, etc. can be found Here.

Crafty found it last night after we had a question about the Tardis. :cheese:

I have to admit though that ii still think Tom Baker is the best ever Doctor Who.

Was anyone else left feeling strangely cheated after watching the series finale?  So magic plays a big part in the show now or did I miss something?
