    Talking Doctor Who!

    Assuming I'm not the only one who watches it - Discuss! Does anyone else think the quality of it declined considerably after the first season? I think the acting is generally good, but the writing is so oddly cheesy now. I was surprised by how good the first season's plots were; I felt they dealt with some pretty deep and interesting issues in creative ways (the end of the world, the effects of altering the past) but I feel it's gotten progressively more camp and less cohesive. Which doesn't mean that I don't watch it anyway to get my weekly fix of Tennantliciousness.

    That's okay I didn't know about it, either, until one of my professors used it in a class I took last fall.

    ahh... but now they can fly, thanks to the wonders of modern... special effects!! (Love that they came up with this crap about Daleks being able to fly, when they used to be blocked by stairs, purely because they now have the CGI etc to be able to actually do it!)

    Yay, a Doctor Who thread!

    Personally, I preferred the Ninth Doctor, and I'm missing Rose already, but the show is still pretty damn entertaining.

    Yup, I'm missing Rose too - she's a honey! But Martha Jones is a pretty damn good replacement I reckon. I loved this weeks - so sad. I do wish David Tennant would stop yelling all the time though... he gets a bit hammy at points for me.

    We need to start a Dr Who thread in the hot guys section.

    Well I thought Christopher Ecclestone was MUCH hotter than Mr Tennant but all my friends disagree! I just liked a moodier Doctor, who didn't think everything was just a big laugh all the time! Do you remember the episode with Christopher when he first met that chained up Darlek? He was bloody amazing!! So dark!
    Twitchy, if you start the thread I promise to join you and we'll look major nerds together!!

    Chris Ecclestone is MILES hotter than Tennant. Tennant has a certain endearing geeky quality about him, but Eccleston is just hawt!

    Daleks have always been able to fly. Please let me know which episode they were holted by a flight of stairs.

    This has been a running joke for years but the daleks on screen have never been thwaited by a flight of steps.

    On the subject of Christpher Eccleston yes he was a fantastic Doctor but he could never have played the character the way he did for any longer than he did. He was a bit too moody, this is meant to be an optomistic series that is fun on a saturday night and a think David , who can handle dark stuff extrely well fits the part better. He does shout a lot but thats his thing.Love his mantra of No second Chances.But having said that I did love Christopher.

    I really miss rose too.Martha is very good and the way that the Doctor is openly rude to her, sometimes makes me chuckle. The scene with her and David Tennant at the end of last saturdays episode was very moving

    As sad as this sounds Doctor who has turned into an excuse for me and my friends to get together everyweek drink wine and chuckle a lot......you dont get that with EASTENDERS !

    Nough said xx
