    I think the new series might start on September 1st. I know it's only a few weeks away.

    That was my ambition from a very early age. I hope your lad has more success than I did.

    You know you're getting old when the actor playing The Doctor is younger than you.

    It may not be everyone's cup of tea, or jelly baby, but it has been such a big part of my life I was so happy that it returned when my lads were old enough to be brainwashed but young enough not to realise it.

    You have clearly never heard of Adric or Mel.

    Ugh.

    Amy has been a superb companion anyway - the River Song story arc was brilliant.

    Again,on the transfer list.
    River Song had one moment I didn't dislike her,the regeneration at the end of Day of the Moon as a little girl in New York.

    Rose should have gone with Chris E,but it was the returns in series 4 that really ruined Rose for me...

    Amy just seems so shallow,egocentric and generally not caring,she never grew on me...

    If I must.

    My favourite Doctor was Peter Davidson and for me was the best regeneration to the next Doctor.

    Peter Davison regenerated into Colin Baker at the end of my 2nd favourite Dr Who story ever - The Caves of Androzani.

    Absolutely brilliant story and featured one of the best bad guys ever - Sharaz Jek.

    Some of the acting in the classic series really was horrific but every so often, a brilliant performance came along and the guy who played Jek was superb.

    I can just about remember the plot leading upto Davidson turning into Baker. There were people in white all over the place and I was wondering who the fook they were and it all become clear at the end. Another scary one and you'll laugh now was when The Master had the fake Tardis and the copper came and took a look inside, he was then shrunk into a puppet I think. I was a kid then and It was scary as sh1t.

    Oh yes. I know FAR too much about this show.

    Coincidentally, that story was the first to feature Tegan. Her aunt was one of the people The Master shrunk.

    Tom Baker was easily the best Doctor. Adric was a dire assistant but at least he died spectacularly

    David Tennant my fave - only 'cos I've only been around since Doctor #9! :P

    And as for assistants, in order of preference; Donna > Amy > Rose > Martha. I think it's Amy's accent. I like her accent :P

    Oh, and Weeping Angels are bloody brilliant!

    Baker (T)
    Smith
    Pertwee
    Ecclestone
    Tennant
    Troughton
    Davison
    Hartnell
    McCoy
    Baker (C)

    I can't rate poor old Paul McGann as he only had one go and that was an appalling bastardised American car wreck of an attempt.

    Yup - a grumpy old man. Bit of a difference to the current incarnation!

    Tennant,he was simply made for the role.
    Eccleston did a good job.
    Smith is growing on me but he's not helped by Moffat's take on how the show should be imo.

    Donna
    Rose w/Eccleston
    Rose w/Tennant
    Martha





    Rory






    Amy

    Moffat > RTD. I love how RTD brought the show back and brought it up to date, but he simply isn't as good as Moffat when it comes to writing science fiction.

    I think the show had become a bit stale by the end of Last of the Time Lords. I didn't really enjoy the last few episodes of Tennant's era as much.

    Some of the story arcs Moffat has written have been superb.

    Fair enough,I agree they are very different.RTD focused on the drama,normally just jumped to a planet or a different time and stayed there for the duration of the episode.Moffat uses time travel as part of the plot,much more sci-fi about it I agree but in some stories it seemed more important than the story which I did not enjoy.

    I liked most of series 4 but I see your point,it was getting stale...

    The funny thing is Moffat is by far my favourite episode writer of the RTD era.

    I loved series 4 too (it featured Davros - what more could you ask for?!) but the specials they did were weak. Except the Waters of Mars - that was good.

    RTD's episodes often got really close to an ace idea only for it to be slightly overdone.

    The Timelords - awesome - especially with Dalton as the head Timelord - criminally underused.

    The Master - I adored Utopia (one of the best ever episodes) but the next couple disappointed me (the Dr being aged was really shit). And what the hell did they do to the Master during Tennant's last story?


    Then Waters of Mars - they tried to make him go a bit mad - they should have run with that a bit.

    Anyway, I'm just focussing on the negative here - I enjoyed far more of RTD's time in charge than otherwise.

    Prepare him for the weeping angels. I still have the claw marks from my youngest when he entered that room and the Dr (Matt Smith) said don't blink.
