    I've watched a couple episodes with the latest guy but I have not made a habit out of it. I didn't dislike like it I thought it was interesting but just haven't watched much. Maybe I should?

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Smith can get a bit wooly at times, i think Tennant had the best storylines (of the new series ofcourse) which came to an epic conclusion at the end of it all. The whole Amy/Riversong arch was a bit meh, yeh it was intresting but the whole "EVERYTHING COUNTS TO THIS!" was a bit meh, now it looks to be "EVERYTHING COUNTS TO CLARA COZ SHE SINGS!"...

    Kinda went like this...


    9- Adventure! Whats this Badwolf eh?
    10- ADVENTURE ADVENTURE ADVENTURE ADVENTURE ADVENTURE OH SNIT DARLEKS AND THE MASTER AND LOOK AT ALL MY FRIENDS!!
    11- Adventure and Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Amy Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara Clara

    You get the idea :-p



    Anyway, for those that dont like Smith, this is his last season! Im excited to see who the new Doctor is ^^

    I can see why some people like smith but I'm not that keen. How do you know this is his last series?
    I thought the Amy and River story was rather boring and I saw it coming. I think River has been really overused as a character.
    i liked Rose, wasn't that keen on Martha and thought Donna and Jack were great. I thought Amy was an awful character but liked Rory. It's a shame Miranda Hart wasn't allowed by the BBC to go for a role in the Matt Smith series as it would have given me more reason to watch it. I was always excited by a new episode with Christopher ecclestone and David Tennant but not so much with Matt Smith. I don't think the stories are up to much with Matt Smith to be honest.
    Blink has got to be one of my favourite episodes.
    I can read your thoughts.

    Love Dr Who so much I've even written about it twice for this site.

    Love all the Docs so my favourite adventures for each of them are as follows.

    Hartnell. , Marco Polo or tenth planet

    Troughton, Invasion or War games

    Pertwee, Daemons or Inferno

    Tom Baker, Too many but probably terror of the zygons, Genesis of the Daleks or Full Circle

    Davison, Kinds, The Visitation or Caves of Androzani

    Colin Baker, vengeance on Varos or Terror of the Vervoids

    McCoy , Ghost light or Curse of Fenric.

    McGann , any big finish audio with Sheridan Smith

    Eccleston, Rose

    Tennant , girl in the fireplace or age of steel

    smith, too early to say

    Just got into this early this year. Saw the complete new series up to this latest season. Although I've only seen the Asylum of the Daleks episode for this season. I thought it was decent. I like Smith as the Doctor. I just think it's the plots that make these later seasons not as good as the Tennant ones. I agree with the whole Amy/River Song arc. It was eh. But I plan on seeing the original series eventually. Just gotta make time lol And it's a shame Eccleston only chose to do one season. I thought he was awesome!

    I must admit i havnt gotten to watching that one, i tried to but i was on the bus and i couldnt focus on it so kinda skipped the whole story. unless theres an animated version ive been missing.

    Im also working my way thought the audio books, theres just not enought time for all the Doctor Whoness!!


    I think one of the problems Eccleston had with so many people not liking him is that he was a Doctor tailored for a new audiance, made to attract people of various generations.. or something! i had this discussion with the missus a while ago :-p she doesnt like him too much.

    (also im totaly watching Badwolf right now while waiting to put dinner on)

    Eccleston left too soon but he said he only wanted to do one series, I always think of him as the angry Doctor for some reason.

    As for Marco Polo, the BBC put out an audiobook with linking narration , its long but a great listen.

    Yeah that's understandable. He had huge shoes to fill as the guy who brought back the Doctor. Like I said, I haven't seen the original series yet, but everything I've heard/read is that they're pretty different (new vs. old episodes). So of course, there's gonna be a lot of fans of the original that aren't gonna like him, simply because he couldn't live up to the expectations in their minds.

    I doubt they will be really hope this could tie into him being the mysterious 3rd original timelord, theirs been theories on it for years that he was one of the first people along with rassilion and omega to create the timelords themselves as we know them.

    Summed it up perfectly.

    UK call it a series. US call it a season.

    I knew all that but just forgot . In the us when a shows ending forever the last ep is the series finale. So I saw his post and was like "doctor who is ending? That cant be right. He mustve meant season not series."

    And where the hell are you getting this from? I doubt we'll see any sign of the Twelfth Doctor until the 50th anniversary special, which isn't until the end of the year.
