The Newly Regenerated Doctor Who Thread

posted by Friar on - last edited - Viewed by 51.1K users

So, Christmas is approaching, and with it a brand new Doctor who episode, and seeing as it's no longer series 5, I thought it would be time for a new, more generalised Doctor who thread!

For those who are new to the series, It features a humanoid Alien (timelord) called the Doctor, who travels in time and space in the TARDIS. He's the last of his race, and when he dies, he regenerates into a new person (up to 13 times). So far he has done so 11 times, with the current, 11th doctor being Matt Smith.

To kick things off, here's a trailer for the new Doctor who ipod/iphone/ipad/android game: The mazes of time!

    I've never been interested watching it.

    It is a fun TV show about the madcap adventures of Doctor Who as he goes around and has lots of fun with his various partners. It's an episodic show that is best watched by going out of order, however, which many still refuse to accept despite it blatantly being true.

    It's a lighthearted show with an alien who looks human and occasionally turns into a completely different actor flying around time and space with one (or more) various 'companions' that has the basic mantra of "go anywhere, do anything". And does. For example:

    Wanna have a murder mystery with Agatha Christie? They did that.

    Wanna have a giant race in space with actual boats? They did that.

    Wanna have a monster designed by a kid and played by Peter Kay? They did that.
    (OK, the whole thing was a complete mess, but they did it!)

    It's just a fun, random show that can be anything the writer wants it to be.

  • You also skipped an important word in your description of how you feel about the show - are you not interested in watching it, or not interested whilst watching it? If it's the latter, whatever floats your boat and you can dislike or like whatever you like, but if you haven't given the show a chance I say go forward and find a copy of Father's Day or The Fires of Pompeii and just watch it - at the worst, it'll just be a 42 minute sci-fi excursion that requires no prior knowledge and at best it's the beginning of a 800-episode journey...

    (Did you know the Christmas Special this year will be the 800th episode, incedentally? Surely this calls for every Doctor ever?)

    Let me fashionably fix that, shall we?

    @Phil_TWD said: Can anyone tell me what's so good about Doctor Who?

    I've never been interested will watching it right away.

  • Now now, let's not be TOO forceful. Dude's entitled to not like the show.

    They'd be a complete outcast round these here parts, but still... :p @Ribs said: (Did you know the Christmas Special this year will be the 800th episode, incedentally? Surely this calls for every Doctor ever?)For reals? Wow.

    Wait... does that include the 50th anniversary?

    Doctor who Doctor who is about anything you could imagine and more. It can take the troubled Vincent van Gough and show him how much his work will be appreciated. It can fuse Shakespeare and Harry Potter, have an army of rhinos kidnap a hospital on the moon or reunite a girl with her long dead father. It puts queen Nefertiti on a spaceship with dinosaurs and Mr.Filch. It can give you a chronic fear of shadows and statues. The possibilities really are endless.

    Oh and @corruptbiggins: so much for David Tenant giving up hope of ever being asked.

    Yup, Anniversary will be Episode 799. And, to further affirm the claim there's a milestone everywhere if you look for it, Episode Six of 7B (The Crimson Horror) will be the 100th episode of BBC Cymru-Wales' Doctor Who.

  • Tenant's coming back? Well... I can tell you what I'm hoping for. It starts with Vale and ends with yard and has to do with a certain Doctor Double made out of a severed hand who happens to be in an alternate universe.
