Actually yes! Dr. Who is like.. timeless and so popular!

Who is your favourite Doctor? Mine's the latest one, Matt Smith. He was the first Doctor I watched actually :3

Hey, another club I can join and forget to post in. I mean, hey! a Doctor Who club. Woohoo.

My favorite Doctor. Gosh, that's always a tough question. Probably Jon Pertwee (#3) since he was quite the dapper Doctor with his maroon crushed velvet smoking jacket.

I shall join teh club.

The classic question. :3 My favourite doctor from what I've seen in the actual show is David Tennant (#10) because he's funny, charming, attractive, resourceful, and just the right balance between friendly and distant. I feel many of the other Doctors from what I've seen either are so smart and so distracted by their own stuff that they don't really develop close relationships and seem completely uninterested in their respective travelling companions, whereas Matt Smith seems just a little too accessible. Anything that is mysterious about him is really just silly stuff, not real mystery. David Tennant is the middle ground. :) (I guess the Ninth is kind of like that too, but eh I already said David Tennant just deal with it. :P)

However my favourite Doctor that I've barely seen anything of is the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker). He seems really fun and loony and great to go on an adventure with, but I have only seen like three of his episodes so I don't know him very well.

Pwetty pwease, may I join?

And to answer the current question, I think my answer is semi-obvious. I love the 9th Doctor as Christopher Eccleston was the first one I saw ever, and his acting was brilliant, and if he hadn't done such a good job, maybe the new series wouldn't have reached as high a popularity as they do have. Maybe though, David Tennant was great too. Jon Pertwee and William Hartnell are joint close 2nd to me though, dunno why, they just fit the eccentric nature of this wisened figure.

It's kinda funny. I came up with this idea for a Zelda story called The End of Time a year or two before the Doctor Who episode The End of Time was shown. I should've wrote it down for copyright purposes just in case I ever work for Nintendo! :P

November 2nd, 2011, 05:21 PM
Haaayyy, I was thinking of making this like last week lol. There was one a while ago but I hadn't caught up on NuWho back then. Sign me up bro.

My favourite incarnation of the Doctor is probably Eleven (even though I said I'd never play favourites with them, I've gotten quite attached). I haven't seen much of Classic Who yet though so I can't quite judge overall. :P Currently watching Pertwee episodes and they are fantastic, must admit. <33

My first story was "Rose", since I started with the 2005 reboot and watched in order from there. I quite liked it; I feel it was quite a good intro to the show in general. It's certainly not the best episode I have seen, but for introductory purposes especially it was great.

By the way, has anyone else been walking 500 miles as of late? ~

Esper
November 3rd, 2011, 09:27 AM
My first exposure to DW was probably "Rose" but I have this nagging feeling that someone showed me something from David Tennant's first season before that and that I just wasn't paying attention at the time. I dunno if I thought it was a great episode or just a hook for following episodes I thought were pretty great since I marathon'd through the whole season and don't really remember what happened in that episode much.

Banjora Marxvile
November 3rd, 2011, 09:52 AM
My first actual one that I watched through was Aliens of London, I'll admit. I then caught up by watching Rose and then the other 2 (I forgot their names), and I've loved it all ever since, and I've watched some classic ones (I looooove Omega from the Three Doctors, a Pertwee episode... He could be my next theme...)

Anyway...

O-MEHG-ha, or Oh-mee-gah, or Or H'omegah? Goodness, what a fun episode that was. They couldn't pronounce his name twice in a row the same way. Shame that Hartnell couldn't really be in that episode more since he was already sort of too sick to act at that point.

Hm, so maybe a question could bring some activity to this place.

Who would you like to see as the next Doctor after Matt Smith?

It was a pity, but it was somethng to have him in the episode at all. One of the rumors behind the idea of the Doctor regenerating was that Hartnell knew that the series was so popular, and so wanted it to continue when he got too frail to carry on acting, and so suggested the idea, though it hasn't really been proven true.

And as for the next Doctor, me I dunno actually. I'd like another sorta darker Doctor like Christopher Eccleston or David Tennant was, or maybe someone brilliant in line with Jon Pertwee or Hartnell. I'd like a return to an older Doctor who seems like a grandfather (or father) figure, but it may never happen. Dunno why, but I can't imagine anyone specific at the moment.

I saw that theory 'round tumblr at one point. Would be interesting, surely, but I think he'd rather write or direct for Doctor Who than play the Doctor. He does have some acting experience though iirc, could be interesting... ahaha I would like to see him do it actually! But I don't think it would happen.

Tennant a balanced personality? I always got the impression he was borderline psychotic. :cer_laugh:

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE INCARNATION OF THE DOCTOR (1st - 11th)?
9th - Eccleston. He always seemed to be more of a guiding figure than someone who managed to fluke a solution in the nick of time. He just gave a better representation of the Doctor's Time Lord-ness. Flicking through the book and reading it in a split second in Rose's apartment in the first episode is the first thing that comes to mind. "I love happy endings." :D
What was the first episode you have ever watched?
I watched a lot of the classic stuff, but I was younger and don't remember anything specific. I started watching it religiously since the first episode of the revival (9th).

I'll join. I'm not completely obssessed but I've probably seen most episodes since the 2005 reboot. (I think I've missed a few from the most recent series because it was awful and a couple of the specials David Tennant had in that year were there wasn't a series)

I was expecting to be flamed for thinking Christopher Ecclestone was the best but he seems pretty popular here. Still saddens me that he only had one series.

Oh guys have you heard of David Yates' Doctor Who Movie plans? [x (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118046098)] I quite liked Moffat's reaction. [x (http://twitter.com/#!/steven_moffat/status/136473335147139072)]

November 15th, 2011, 06:07 PM
He's basically saying that Yates' vision is comparable to that in stupidity. What Yates wants to do is disregard all of NuWho and do his own thing on the big screen. That's just rude, obnoxious and imo a terrible idea. I mean if we were gonna get a movie, I think Time War would be best. I was thinking Prydon Academy originally but that would be better as a spinoff TV series.

Deadrocks
November 15th, 2011, 06:39 PM
I see. So Yates doesn't even want to be associated with the current series? That IS rude. lol What generation did the Time War happen? I recall in the early series the Timelords still were around.

Aquacorde
November 15th, 2011, 06:59 PM
The Time War was basically what was used to wipe the slate clean between Classic and NuWho. It happened at some point after the 1996 TV Movie, probably just before "Rose", since Nine apparently hadn't seen his current regeneration yet. This is assuming Eight died in the Time War, though, and managed to get away before regenerating. However it still doesn't make a ton of sense because Nine is pretty cool & collected by the time of "Rose" but apparently hadn't had time to look in a mirror? idk

The Doctor not checking his appearance in a mirror for a long time doesn't make any sense... which is why it makes perfect sense for the Doctor.

I'm excited by the idea of a movie, even if it's just an idea right now. A movie series would be even more fantastic.

I suppose that's true. He is always a bit distracted.

Some people are suggesting Chiwetel Ejiofor for the Doctor for the not-yet-even-proposed new DW movie. I would be down with this. That guy is a fabulous actor.

Anyway, question time?

Which characters from past Doctor Who episodes do you want to see making a return?

Like, old companions, old enemies, or even old incarnations of the Doctor. I for one would not mind seeing David Tennant make a guest appearance in some fashion.

I am also a DW fan... but a very recent one!
The first episode I ever watched was The Eleventh Hour, because my friends told me season 5 was a great place to start for people that had never watched before. True facts apparently, as I was hooked pretty quickly.

My favourite doctor is probably 10 - I really enjoy David Tenant. I would've said 9 - but I was a bit turned off Ecclestone when I found out he didn't even like DW haha.

LOL about David Yates and the movie... people are getting so wound up about what a travesty it is going to be... but if it's going to be completely unrelated to the tv series, I doubt it can be that devastating.

Something that hasn't been asked yet - who is your favourite companion?
I'd have to say Martha or Amy.
Martha - because she is pretty much the only companion who didn't not have a life before The Doctor. She's a doctor and is badass.
and Amy because she has such great chemistry with Matt Smith - and shes like the only companion who seems more of an equal to the Doctor. And she has Rory. Who I love.

The thing about that, though, is that the intention was to use a different Doctor and a different companion and ignore the NuWho continuity. It would ignore NuWho's established canon and just kind of do its own thing. It's not just unrelated to the TV series- it's ignoring quite a bit of it. If that much of it is ignored... well... it's not really Doctor Who.
Also it's not gonna happen so eh.

Favourite companion? Well, usually whoever I'm watching at the time. Same as how "my Doctor" works for me. So at the moment, my Doctor is Jon Pertwee and my companion is Jo Grant/Liz Shaw (though Liz just left ;;). But I will always hold a special fondness for Eleven, Nine, and Donna.

And I'm just going to offer correction on the Eccleston story (http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-radio/tvandradioblog/2011/jul/21/doctor-who-christopher-eccleston)- he left because he didn't like the atmosphere of the working environment and didn't get along with the higher-ups. However, he does like Doctor Who and is proud to have played the Doctor.

Totally agreed on that one. Though it does make me worry about Torchwood.

Aquacorde
December 9th, 2011, 10:11 PM
~Torchwood spoilers ahoy~

I'm not worried about Torchwood. Torchwood is done. It should have ended with CoE, because after that... there was no Torchwood. I mean, what was the real purpose of Torchwood Three? Rift maintenance. Keeping Cardiff clean of extraterrestrial debris. Torchwood Three was basically full of really cool janitors. The division of the organization went something like:

One: Defense of Earth, Extraterrestrial Research
Two: Paperwork
Three: Cleanup and Cataloging
Four: Highly Experimental (probably; afaik it vanished)

What I'm trying to say is that Earth Defense wasn't really Three's job. They didn't have the tech, manpower, resources, anything. Especially after CoE. The only reason they kept on for CoE was Jack's personal involvement and the fact that the remaining team members were being hunted down for assassination. The Hub was gone, their normal job was gone, everything was going to hell. Then certain people died, Jack ran away, and it was actually a very tidy ending.

But then suddenly he's back on Earth for Miracle Day (which honestly I watched like 5 1/2 eps of and couldn't force myself to watch more) and Torchwood Gwen and Jack are off to save the world from nastiness, which has something to do with a former lover of Jack's and insane plots. Aliens? What aliens? Just humans and guns and economic devastation. Tbh it was boring and sickening and... didn't feel like Torchwood. Not much could top CoE, sure, but it could have been so much better than that. Besides, the continuity is so screwed up with DW continuity now. Best explanation is definitely parallel universe (Trousers of Time version).

....Anyway. Main point. Torchwood is gone. All that's left is possibly Four- One was destroyed in the Battle of Canary Wharf of course. Two was disbanded prior to CoE and Three was done in CoE. There's really not much left to work with.

I don't want to see any more Torchwood. Rambling rant over.

Phantom
December 10th, 2011, 02:20 PM
Well,

I am a huge Torchwood fan. Miracle Day felt rushed (even though it was longer than CoE), and it didn't live up to the hype. But I wish to learn more about Jack, I understand what you said about Torchwood 3, but still, it leaves a lot left like what is going to happen with Rex?

It doesn't mean that Torchwood can't be recreated. Torchwood 5? Just because their original mission is dead doesn't mean that they are useless or should leave, in truth Earth would be screwed without them.

I see Torchwood as insurance for when the Doctor isn't there, at least that's what they've become. I don't think it as them overstepping their bounds, but evolving into something more, something that encompasses the entire planet rather than just the U.K. That was what CoE was about; the team looking global and dealing with an event that would deal with the planet rather than just Cardiff or the U.K.. Miracle Day was that moving even further, but I feel it wasn't done right; maybe just too quickly, that's the problem with these short series'. That's what the Doctor would want Torchwood to be, not a selfish way to move their own country closer to power, but to keep the world safe and think of humankind as a species and a planet, rather than race and country.

If anything I think this Who movie shouldn't be Doctor Who, but rather Torchwood. Torchwood is more adult oriented, plus it might give a reason to end Torchwood with a bang. Sad thing is Torchwood just doesn't have the following Who does and it would most likely die at the box office.

Plus if you don't want to see any more Torchwood, then don't watch it. Problem solved. :P

December 10th, 2011, 03:09 PM
I still am a huge Torchwood fan. But I really, really dislike MD. It was too drawn-out with too much random violence and hanging plot threads. It simply was not executed well. Especially with the problem of Rex. The best shows really have most everything tied up by the end of the season, and if you leave things hanging like that it's actually not that promising. Viewers like a resolution, not more twisted complications. [side note: this is why PotC2 was the worst of its series.]
Really, if Jack is to be further explored, I think bringing him back to DW as a semi-frequent companion would be best. Maybe getting about the same amount of screentime River did the last few seasons.

The thing is, Torchwood can't be recreated. There is a reason One was never rebuilt, Two closed down, Four was never found. Besides that, they used to get funding and everything directly from the heads of the British government. If they're gallivanting off in America, how are they gonna be funded? If they're not funded, how are they going to have the equipment necessary to take on worldwide attacks and such? And how are they going to get to London fast enough when aliens inevitably strike there?
Honestly, the only way I see Torchwood continuing is if Three's surviving members find Four and join up with them or something.

Insurance for when the Doctor isn't there, sure. But he's got a phone [though he seems to rarely answer] and pops back and forth often enough that he's hear about some huge event. That's why MD makes no sense- would Martha have not called the Doctor? Would the Doctor have not notice something amiss? He's been back a crap-ton of times with Amy and Rory supposedly during the events of MD. [ooh new idea MD happened in the aborted timeline of series 5's finale]
Torchwood's not overstepping their bounds, no, but they're overstepping their abilities. They haven't got the resources- no you know what I've said it already. The Doctor's wishes are all well and good [and are more along the lines of "humans should start developing planetary shields and practicing communications with extraterrestrials"], but they really can not conceivably take this on themselves. They're only humans and semi-immortals. They haven't got a TARDIS or insane knowledge of the universe's intricate workings. They barely saved the world in the last few seasons and even then lost a hell of a lot of people. And the thing is, both times it wasn't even an exciting and brilliant resolution- it was hell. It was terrifying. It was depressing. And it worked once, really well, but you can't keep doing that kind of thing over and over for your conclusions. People don't watch to be sad and horrified- they want at least a decent end to the emotional turmoil.

Honestly MD would have worked best as a movie if anything. It was stretched too thin for ten episodes. Two and a half hours would have been perfect.

Plus if you don't want to see any more Torchwood, then don't watch it. Problem solved. :P
This, I don't ever tolerate anyone saying, especially when you know perfectly well what I mean. I mean I don't want to see another disappointment attached to Torchwood. I don't want it to exist, because when that kind of thing happens people start forgetting about the brilliance that came before it. It'll be like Brett Favre's career.

In other news, I'm learning how to knit so I can make Four's scarf. Yes that is the only reason.

I still am a huge Torchwood fan. But I really, really dislike MD. It was too drawn-out with too much random violence and hanging plot threads. It simply was not executed well. Especially with the problem of Rex. The best shows really have most everything tied up by the end of the season, and if you leave things hanging like that it's actually not that promising. Viewers like a resolution, not more twisted complications. [side note: this is why PotC2 was the worst of its series.]
Really, if Jack is to be further explored, I think bringing him back to DW as a semi-frequent companion would be best. Maybe getting about the same amount of screentime River did the last few seasons.

The thing is, Torchwood can't be recreated. There is a reason One was never rebuilt, Two closed down, Four was never found. Besides that, they used to get funding and everything directly from the heads of the British government. If they're gallivanting off in America, how are they gonna be funded? If they're not funded, how are they going to have the equipment necessary to take on worldwide attacks and such? And how are they going to get to London fast enough when aliens inevitably strike there?
Honestly, the only way I see Torchwood continuing is if Three's surviving members find Four and join up with them or something.

Insurance for when the Doctor isn't there, sure. But he's got a phone [though he seems to rarely answer] and pops back and forth often enough that he's hear about some huge event. That's why MD makes no sense- would Martha have not called the Doctor? Would the Doctor have not notice something amiss? He's been back a crap-ton of times with Amy and Rory supposedly during the events of MD. [ooh new idea MD happened in the aborted timeline of series 5's finale]
Torchwood's not overstepping their bounds, no, but they're overstepping their abilities. They haven't got the resources- no you know what I've said it already. The Doctor's wishes are all well and good [and are more along the lines of "humans should start developing planetary shields and practicing communications with extraterrestrials"], but they really can not conceivably take this on themselves. They're only humans and semi-immortals. They haven't got a TARDIS or insane knowledge of the universe's intricate workings. They barely saved the world in the last few seasons and even then lost a hell of a lot of people. And the thing is, both times it wasn't even an exciting and brilliant resolution- it was hell. It was terrifying. It was depressing. And it worked once, really well, but you can't keep doing that kind of thing over and over for your conclusions. People don't watch to be sad and horrified- they want at least a decent end to the emotional turmoil.

Honestly MD would have worked best as a movie if anything. It was stretched too thin for ten episodes. Two and a half hours would have been perfect.

Point one! Perhaps "argument" has too many negative connotations to be the word I needed. I like debate though. :>

Has anyone else heard/bought the new Series 6 Soundtrack? What did you all think of it?

(copied from my post on another forum, excuse any oddities related to this. Discusses Series 6, so if you haven't seen it... spoilers)
I downloaded it on iTunes a few hours ago, and I'll be honest, I was a little disappointed with this. Apart from the obvious contenders, like "Tell Me Who You Are" (though that will always be "A Melody of River" to me), "The Impossible Astronaut" (Which will always be "Hello, Doctor"). "36 Years" and "Locked On"... there aren't that many tracks that stand out to me. Compare to last year, where I can instantly riff off a list of my favourite tracks, all with their own unique flavours. I'll give mention to "Lost in the Wrong Stream" and "The Majestic Tale" as being really well done, if a bit... sort of, you know.

The soundtrack isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but while I had it playing in the background, I was rarely compelled to look at the track name and make a note of it.

Like every year, I was a little disappointed with the exclusion of certain pieces, such as the variation of "Melody Pond" played when The Doctor dies, with the added guitars and different intro. It also appears my wish to finally hear that depressing piano sting from The Doctors Wife (and I think it was in either Turn Left or Midnight before that) will be unfulfilled again...

Ace, seriously, doesn't even have to be the same actress. She beat a dalek with a baseball bat.

Captain Jack... obviously... but I think Jack + new Doctor might be very interesting.

Luke Smith. Since SJA was cut off by Liz' death I think we need some real closure for SJA.

Jenny... obviously because of the questions left unanswered.

Sooo, Christmas special, what you think of it?

Personally, I thought it was rubbish; at least until the last five minutes. I mean it had its moments, but as far as Christmas specials go, I don't think it held up to major specials like "The End of Time" or "Voyage of the Damned". For some reason it felt... forced... I am at a loss for words on how to explain it... but the sheer ripped off-ness from The Chronicles of Narnia put me off a bit. I mean I get that it was in the name, but still, yeah I don't know.

The jokes about 'wood' were funny though. All this time people have been arguing about the sonic screwdriver and wood, and that pretty much settled it. I love how he was talking to the screwdriver.

I was happy to see Amy and Rory though. I missed having them, and I sort of wished that River was there for Christmas too, it would have been a nice surprise for the Doctor. :) But it was cute that they always left him a spot. And I thought Amy's reindeer sweater was adorable.

Otherwise I didn't really care for the story much. Just felt corny with a bit of really funny bits.

Yayya I got my Sonic Screw Driver a few days ago (The 9th anf 10th Doctors).
And almost to Season 5 (Been taking some breaks from my regular at least 3 episodes a day.

Though I almost quite watching it.
I feel for the Doctor so much, at the end of Journeys End, where he told Rose to keep over the other Doctor, and the pain he felt when she kissed the other one. And so many losses, the dialeks return yet again. It was just getting to the point where it was tearing me apart.
But I decided to watch the waters of mars, and The End of Time I will start tommorow on the TV if I can.
So it goes Journeys End - Waters of Mars - The End of Time - The Next Doctor?
Just want to make sure I dont miss anything. I think theres two more specials in Season 4.. I guess ill get to those whenever.

No, and you're missing a special.

Not it's:

Journey's End-The Next Doctor-Planet of the Dead-Waters of Mars-The End of Time

I could agree with you.

It had a very weird story. The tree people were weird, and it didn't have much of an antagonist. I did like the ending with Karen and whatnot. It was a nice touch.

I'd almost disagree that the end of time was a Christmas Special, since it was a 2-parter that lasted into the new year. Though it was in the Christmas season. Didn't they still have a separate Christmas special that year? Or am I mistaken?

...I'm just gonna put it out there that I actually do get confused when people don't distinguish between "series" and "season" so for my sake, guys: "Season" for Classic Who, "Series" for NuWho. Please.

Also Series 7 hasn't begun airing yet and has just started filming as far as I know so... no worries bro.

@countryemo ...what exactly did you watch? A documentary on one of the Peter Cushing movies or...?

And Chameleon Circuit is fab. I've been listening to them longer than I've been watching Doctor Who, actually, cause I encountered the first album on Alex Day's music page. They're awesome <33

Also from my perspective... one is not a better or worse fan for having seen more or less Doctor Who or liking and disliking certain things. The only rule to being a Whovian is to love Doctor Who. But your friend, bro, is no Whovian if he dismisses the Classic seasons like that. Just saying. Also he seems very rude.

Also guys today is the first anniversary of Nicholas Courtney's death. I've been remembering him by watching serials he's been in. Particularly The Invasion. Here is the first time you see him in that serial:

Hah I've seen that comparison around. Rather amusing. :3

Um there is news that I have:

Peter Halliday- Packer in The Invasion- died on the 19th. Didn't hear about it till much later, but it happened. He was brilliant. :<

Frazer Hines- Jamie McCrimmon- is coming to the Twin Cities in September 2012 (http://www.britconmn.org/index.html) [that means I get to meet him!]

Series 7 started filming last week (http://doctorwho.tumblr.com/post/18037847032/heres-the-very-first-photo-of-matt-arthur-and), so at least we know something is happening.
Also, three guest stars have been confirmed for Series 7 (http://doctorwho.tumblr.com/post/18049627091/three-guest-stars-confirmed-for-doctor-who-series).

On a personal note, I found a new avatar & I ordered The Two Doctors and the TV Movie and they should be showing up soonish. :3

Oo Dr Who! I'd like to join please :D I'll answer the questions now x]

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE INCARNATION OF THE DOCTOR (1st - 11th)? 9th! Christopher was the best, it's a shame he left so quickly :(
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO? I don't remember the name, but it was the first Tennant + Rose one that wasn't a special; it was about Cats running a hospital and it was amazing! Plus so chilling at the time. So then I had to watch the rest!
WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE MAKE A REAPPEARANCE? The thief from the red bus Easter special - she should be the next assistant! <3
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE COMPANION? Donna Donna Donna Donna <3
DO YOU SEE IT AS SCIENTIFICALLY POSSIBLE TO CREATE A TARDIS? Unfortunately no :( But I really wish it was! D:
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL? Titanic! It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it had a great guest appearance! I do wish it could've been a two parter though D:
DO YOU SEE A FEMALE DOCTOR IN THE FUTURE? Nope. I don't think that's possible in Time Lord genetics is it? They're Time Ladies? :s Although I wouldn't be surprised if the Doctor's daughter comes back.
IN YOUR OPINION, WILL THE DOCTOR EVER BE GINGER? YES HE MUST BE <333

Is there anyone else who still secretly hopes to see David Tennant carry the torch in the London Olympic Games this year?

This club was dead for over two months so unfortunately I have to close it. If there is still interest in it, though, feel free to remake it.
