I thought it was terrific. Fast, funny, has good special effects & great chemistry between Eccleston & Piper (surprisingly).

I thought i'd hate it 'cos I think the old Doctor Who shows are just ridiculous, but this is how it should be, 21st century style. Let's hope it keeps the excellence of the first two eps. (y)

Oh, hang on, we've not been looking properly. You sent it PM last night. I can speak for I'm an aliasaholic & myself when I say we are both VERY stupid today.

Doesn't look like it was the Doctor, after all. :(

No, Eccleston is leaving. He said he'd stay for a few seasons, but backed out & has left the BBC pissed-off, apparently.

Shame, cos I think he does it really well. Makes it much more accessible instead of some posh ponce in a bright cravat.

Which means, of course, whoever plays the Doctor next will be a posh ponce in a bright cravat!...

Same here, the old ones are s***.

And what's going on with people our parents age saying they use to get scared when the Daleks came on?. How could anyone be scared by a big metal walnut whip with a plunger on it's head?. I've NEVER got that!

But, yeah, if they get a Doctor like the old ones i'll switch off. Unless Billie goes nude. :P

Well considering it's written by the geezer who wrote Queer as Folk, i'm surprised the Doctor & Rose haven't started licking each other's arseholes out yet.

Maybe that's next week. :P

^ I'm sure it is...:rollseyes:

Yeah...anytime I saw repeats or clips of the old ones...well...it didn't really interest me...apart from the theme tune...although my friend Megan thinks the theme tune goes:
"Doctor Whooooo
Do-do-do-do-doooo"

:LOL:
apparently the guy that played Casanova on bb3 was being considered as the new Dr Who
Yeah, I heard about that too...hmmm.
Anyway...why are seasons always so short here...13 episodes does not make a full season...:nonono:

Jai :rain:

True, but it's more than I thought they'd give it. Usually BBC dramas only get about six or eight, so it's finished just as you get into it. I think the reason we do less is simple: money.

The Yanks have spoiled us. That's why I rarely watch British TV drama. I like Hustle, they should do more episodes. And Robert Vaughn would be great here on Alias.

That why I like Who, it's got that US feel to it that our dramas need. All we need now is the BBC to stump up the money for 22 episode seasons & we could be well away. (y)
