I'm not quite sure where you are in the world so that might not be relevant to you. At the end of this new series thay are taking a break for 2009 so David Tennent can fulfil other commitments and to give them a break from a tough filming schedule. They are hoping to do the Christmas specials and maybe a couple of other specials but not a full series. It should then come back in 2010.
The Torchwood spin-off programme is just coming to the end of the second series here but I think they plan to be back next year.
I haven't seen the Sarah Jane programme from your other thread but I believe K9 is in some of the episodes.
Hope that this has helped.
Oh, they'd have been getting a complaint from our house for that if we'd missed the first one. My nephew would never have gotten over it. Me either if I'm honest.
Thanks for that.
It's hard to get excited about it, knowing that Catherine Tate is the new assistant. When she did the Xmas Special I just couldn't warm to her - too often her mannerisms and voice reminded me of her 'comedy' characters.
Torchwood has improved dramatically this series though.
Their site seems to indicate that it premieres April 18, at 8:30.
The Sarah Jane series is evidently going to be on right before it.
Will this season be in HD? Were previous ones? It matters to us in the States now that there's a Sci-Fi HD and soon a BBC America HD.
BBC America is, again, a disappointment.
I am sure it is a reasonable commercial decision. Sci-Fi probably pays a lot for first run rights, more than BBC America is able to. However BBC America can afford second-run rights so runs it at a later date.
I'm tired of Earth-bound episodes, alien invasions, the sonic screwdriver always being the answer, and the constant running running running (if running scenes were edited from the last few series of DW the average episode would last 13 minutes).
There is too much lazy writing and too little imagination.
and enslaving everyone in the Galaxy. What his real name is, why the rest of The Time Lords totally ignore Alien Races like the Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, the Salurians and others are bent on Invading other Planets in the Galaxies and trying to conquer and enslave the Earth.
I know the Time Lords have this rule of non interference which doesn't make any sense to me when they could help defeat these Aliens instead of letting them have their own ways. If it wasn't for The Doctor and his constant meddling with everyone he meets the Universe would be a lot worse off. I have heard Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker say his name was Doctor John Smith but eveyone knows that is such a phony name. Something I have often wondered about the new Doctor Who Series is that he is now up to his 10th Regeneration which means he only has 3 more Regenerations left. What happens when he reaches the 13th and final one? Has the BBC even thought of this before? Before Gallifrey got blown up in the War with the Daleks I always imagined they would give The Doctor another life span of thirteen more Regenerations for all the good he has done in fighting Evil where he has found it. I thought this would be a fitting reward for all of his efforts.
We have had one story set on a different planet. One out of four isn't too bad. The next story is also set on a different planet - two out of five is pretty good.
Both are much better ratios than any other series of new who.
The whole "do I have the right" speech from Genesis is part of the answer. Although the Daleks were an evil bunch of bastards they produced a lot of good in the other species. There were alliances formed and new technology invented and a new race (humans) become a galactic power.
Personally the less the back-story is explained the better. It is also obvious that the Master does not want to kill the Doctor. At various times he has offered him a share in the spoils of his latest plan, and in the latest story he had many chances to kill the Doctor but didn't - he wanted the Doctor around albeit as a shrunken gnome where he was powerless.
As for a new set of regenerations may be they aren't needed. What if the limit was an artificial constraint imposed by some technology on Gallifrey? Anyway who knows the Time-Lords may not really be gone for good.
I haven't seen FotD yet (it'll be on this Friday), but I was shocked, just shocked, that they would use a library—the epitome of peace and comfort—as the setting for a horror story. ;)
I was a little puzzled by the Doctor's reaction to his future friend. I didn't think it was the first time in the show that timelines have intersected in that inverted way.
Turn Left and the Stolen Earth are shocking and excellent and I can hardly wait until next Saturday.
Let's see .... 4:41 am Eastern time here in the US ... that makes it 9:41 am in the UK. That means just 9 more hours until you lucky Brits are watching "Journey's End" ... and about 12 hours before it shows up on the internet so all us wildly obsessed fans can see it now instead of 3 weeks from now.
After Torchwood ended with a major BANG, you better believe I'm going to be on the edge of my seat waiting for Russell's season-ending surprises. The man has pulled out all the stops.
I thought Turn Left was fantastic but I still haven't seen the last two episodes. My mother and I always watch Who together, and for the past week one of us has been busy every night! At the same time, I'm sort of glad for the delay, because I'm going to miss having new Who or Torchwood to look forward to every week.
Tardis, the ending made me sad too, but I think Donna's story was really well done. The ending made sense. And it isn't inconceivable that something will happen with that later. Goodness, Rose came back from a parallel world were the Doctor said if she ever came back it would destroy the universe!
I thought the actual dalek part of the plot made no sense. I don't even think he really tried--just needed an excuse to get everyone together.
Also, there were just too many characters!
Also, I realize that Rose is RTD's favorite character, but I didn't like that plot ending. It was too transparent an attempt to give Rose a "happy" ending. I mean I enjoyed the DoctorDonna, but I think he should have done something heroic and sacrificial before the end of the episode.
The Daleks have ceased to be scary at all for me. I mean, I know they're THE iconic Who enemy, but I think RTD has overused them in the new series.
29> I agree with you about the Daleks and with the Cybermen returning for the Christmas special, I just want to bang my head against the wall of the Tardis. Classic enemies are fine, but the Doctor has a whole slew of baddies to pick from...
I've read almost all of the 10th Doctor novels. There are some good ones, and some not-so-good ones. The ones I really enjoyed:
The Deviant Strain - Nine, Rose and Captain Jack. This one is probably my favorite.
The Resurrection Casket - Space Pirates and a monster named Kevin. Lots of fun.
The Nightmare of Black Island - Good, but a bit similar to The Deviant Strain and Stealers of Dreams.
Forever Autumn - A fun Ten/Martha story that's set in America on Halloween.
Wetworld - Another Ten/Martha story. Lots of great moments. This gets my vote as the best cover. The poor TARDIS! I'm going to be reviewing this a bit more thoroughly on my review blog soon.
32 hairballs: I haven't heard any of the audiobooks that Freema's done. I'll have to check that one out. I've listened to several of the Who audios narrated by David Tennant, and all of the Torchwood audios.
33beatles> You're better off without the spoilers. Just enjoy the show. I think Sarah Jane is coming back.
36Midnight> Haven't listened to any Torchwood. Not much of a Torchwood fan. Owen really gets on my nerves! On the other hand I like the David Tennant audiobooks. The ones I've listened to though are abridged. Are they all that way? I'm having trouble getting hold of a copy of the Nightmare of Black Island audio. I swear I used to have it burried in this computer somewhere. Has anyone listened to the Big Finish production with Ace and #7 where pre-Who David plays a Nazi?
The Who novels tend to fare the abridgment a little better than the Torchwood novels do, though. The one for Border Princes was hacked up pretty badly, but it's my favorite to listen to. Eve Myles is an excellent narrator. The one Naoko Mori did was pretty good as well.
Have you listened to Pest Control yet? It's the first Doctor/Donna story, narrated by Tennant. I have that downloaded but keep forgetting to put it on my iPod. I was saving it for the long gap between the season finale and the Christmas special, which got here sooner than I thought it would!
Ooh, which BF story is that?
I'm just curious why they didn't consider doing it this way.Just imagine the 10 Doctors against the Daleks. And it would've also been nice to have some of the other surviving companions as well as members of U.N.I.T. like Brigadier Lethbridge- Stewart, Sgt. Benson, etc. thrown in to help fight the Daleks.I think if they had done that it would've made it better and interesting too since the Doctor's former selves all still exist in different parts of Space and Time. I also would've liked them to have brought back K-9 too.
It was a time war. I'm sure that both sides would have used as many time travelling tricks as they could have done. Otherwise, it would have just been a war :) So, the Time Lords sent somebody back in time to destroy the Daleks as they were originally being created. And recruited as many Time Lords crossing time lines as the could have got away with. And the Daleks did something similar.
Eventually, both sides ran out of options, and everything stopped. Why this happened I don't know, but at this point, the only survivor was the Doctor...
We never saw all of that. And then Chris Eccleston's season as the Doctor started. All was fine (-ish) until the Dalek Emperor and his cronies turn up in Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways.
The point is that all the Time Lords are dead, or otherwise inaccessible: the Master survived by using a chameleon arch (the same as the Doctor does in Human Nature/Family of Blood) to effective stop being a Time Lord. Any accessible Time Lords would have been hunted down and attacked by the Daleks (they would, wouldn't they). And the Time Lords would have done anything they could do to contact anybody in whatever incarnation was available.
Since the war finished, it's a logical conclusion that there's simply nobody left to fight. Or at least, it was, until it turned out that the Daleks did survive, and, effectively, won.
