Hi guys I thought to start a appreciation thread for the new doctor.What has been said in GateWorld is that her name is Carolyn Lam. She is Stargate Command's new chief medical officer and the daughter of General Landry.She is at the top of her field -- intelligent, quick-witted, and she doesn't take guff from anyone."And I saw the one picture of her on the gateworld homepage Click here (http://www.gateworld.net/news/2005/02/lexadoigcastonistargatesg-.shtml) and she is pretty hot !! :D Here is her fan site: Lexa Doig fan site (http://lexadoig.org/) So I think that this is one of the positive things that is going to happen in the ninth season You can post your thoughts about Lexa Doig in here and you can post some pictures in here but don't make them to big !! I found this one on the gateworld homepage.She is hot.I hope she'll have the same haircolor on stargate as in this picture:D:

Lexa was great as Rommie/Andromeda. I look forward to seeing her in the SGC, but I also miss Janet. It is sad that Lexa hasn't had a big part in the final season of Andromeda. but she did just have a baby, and let's all be happy for that!

Just read that lexa doig will be on sg1. anyone have any clue what she will be playing (anything but an andoriod please.) Will she be a love interest to her real life hubby one danny jackson. Most of all I want to know if we can expect a little cat fighting. Cluadia vs. Lexa.

Truth be told its time for someone to settle down on the show. I can't name four people in my life that have had that bad of luck with relationships. Heck T seems to be the one having the most luck with the ladies. Though I would advice against marriage. Both T and Jacksons wives where killed. Heck even scara who was soon to be married. See carter was just trying to save petes life. Kind of fill sorry for Ry'ac.

:confused:

;) :D

What he means is that Dr. Lam is General Landry's daughter, though the details about all that are unclear, i.e., why is her last name different, how can she be there without triggering nepotism regulations, etc. Also, she is supposed to have some kind of romantic history with Colonel Mitchel (Ben Browder).

Michael Shanks said Doig got the role entirely on her own merit, that he had nothing to do with it.

The SG1 guys have been trying to get Lexa on the show since 2001.

It is not suprising they wanted to grab her once Andromeda finished.

Most likely she will be a regular next season....right now Lexa's baby is

her prioriety and maybe doesn't need a full schedule.

She's gonna be the new general's daughter too, I think, which doesnt seem like a good idea.

I just saw Doig on Avalon Pt. 2 and I must say I am impressed! I just hope she is in more episodes.

** Sorry for bumping this old thread.

I didn't want to start another Doig thread if there was already one made, and she might be an interesting character to talk about.

July 22nd, 2005, 07:06 PM
She will be, and I agree, she did impress. At least, she did not disappoint. If the writers are as smart as I think they are, they will at least mold her character after Frazier. You know, make her the same kind of caring doctor.

TheCorpulent1
July 22nd, 2005, 07:35 PM
Outside of her talk with Landry, I definitely saw some shades of Fraiser in Doig's performance. She runs into the same problem that any young, undeniably hot actress runs into in the role of a doctor or scientist--namely, that there's no way in hell she'd BE a doctor or scientist and she was likely just cast for her looks--but she definitely did a convincing job.

Really? You don't think a female doc or scientist can be hot? Try again. You need glasses or are you just still stuck in the 60's?

As for Lexa Doig, sorry, but I didn't see any shades of Fraiser, I thought her acting was stilted, and tptb need a new technical advisor, because that "code" she ran was a joke! Vala wasn't even tubed. Give me a break.....

Jack assigned them both, he shouldnt have done that. This would not seem to mesh with normal military regulations. The only way this can even really be justified is if she is bringing something more to the table than we are seeing. As Carson said in SGA there are many, many people even more qualified then himself. So I find it hard to beleive that Lamb is the most qualified CMO for the SGC. So unless we get info indicating that Lamb is some type of prodigy or somthing then I can only assume this was Jack trying to "stick it to the man" and violate regulation to help out a friend. Nepotism at its best.

I liked Doig because she was very different from Fraiser, much more assertive and even condescending at times.

I knew someone would inevitably take that the wrong way. I meant that the general perception of hot actresses is that they can't pull off "smart" roles. I don't know, maybe I'm just cynical from having recently watched the Fantastic Four movie, where they failed miserably to sell Jessica Alba as a genius geneticist. Stargate's always been great at portraying intelligent characters on both sides of the gender line, though, and Doig's Dr. Lam was no exception.

I thought Doig's inflections were similar to how Teryl Rothery portrayed Fraiser. The characters are definitely different, but they had the same kind of air to them, in my opinion. I can't say anything about how accurate her medical procedures were since I know even less about medicine than I do about the military, so I didn't notice that.

TINemo
July 23rd, 2005, 12:51 PM
I knew Lexa was coming to be the new doc, but I hadn't heard she was (Beau Bridges) Landry's daughter. From the dialogue and reactions in Avalon 2 I thought she was an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend--though admittedly rather young for old Beau who is in his 50s I believe. He is the older of the Bridges *boys*, Jeff being younger.

I agree the code was badly done.You do need to oxygenate the person ,though not necessarily intubate them,while you are trying to jumpstart the heart . They did show someone *bagging* her but having done that myself, you need to get a good seal against the face and you really have to squeeze the bag hard to overcome the stiffness of the lungs.Also it looked as if she was trying to use the paddles thru Vala's robe,and way too high on the chest. The idea is to get the electrical current across the heart to jolt the sinus node into working--and you won't do that up around the neck. Maybe they need a medical advisor on set so she doesn't look foolish

As for women scientists and doctors not being attractive-- for shame! Of course there are some very lovely ladies, and some regular ones--just as there are with men.Why are all the StarGate males handsome,witty, brave, loyal etc etc. --'cause that's what viewers want to see.Which brings me to a pet peeve-- but a different thread I'm sure. Why does Major Shepherd(now Lt Col) NEVER comb his hair? It' very unmilitary of him. He was the ranking military man but now Caldwell outranks him. Will he comb or cut it now?????

I realize that's shorthand for being a maverick, don't obey the rules guy, but in the REAL Air Force--that hair would go fast!!

Which brings up another question probably already discussed. Why the heck is the AirForce(Planes etc) running the SG land exploring program? I know they get to fly cool jets and hyperspace etc etc now, but originally(say in the movie) were they Air Force or Marines?????????

Well, she's in her 30s so she's old enough to be a doctor. And I think that doctors are allowed to be attractive. If you think she was convincing as the doctor, then I guess the pretty is an added bonus.

ETA: saw your "mea culpa" post. NEVER confuse Jessica Alba with an actress. LOL!

So far we don't have much to go on, but I'd say one step above Dr. Dimbulb (Brightman?) from last season so far. Maybe Teryl Rotherty has more film presence-- I liked her right away.

respect the actor/actress
keep the topic off thier personal lives

I think it's too early to tell about Lexa Doig's character Carolyn Lam. I agree that without reading the news brief, basing just on Avalon 2, I wouldn't know that Lam is Landry's daughter but would have guessed ex-lover.

There are definitely some hot scientists and doctors in real life (although I think there are definitely more in the biological sciences than the physical sciences but that's just b/c there are more females in the bio. sciences) but I think the point of that first post is that hot actress generally don't give a good portrayal of scientists and doctors but I think this is more due to the fact that many hot actresses simply can't act at all and only got the job due to their appearance.

:lol.....If you ever watch ER, or actually work in trauma...it is a defense
mechanism of all medical staff. I found Lexa's portrayal as a doctor who
has experience seeing trauma and death many times very accurate and
far from the hollywood mold. Yes she is totally gorgeous and looks
like a kid....but yeah, she got all the technobable on the money and
the humanity and compassion when she isn't in the middle of a case.
I think the reason she did not show any feelings is that she had imediate concern with Jackson......she didn't have the time nor the luxury to grieve.....

Seeing Lexa on the set is a dream come true.

I would discribe Doc Fraiser as a dedicated military officer that has a proper
and easy bedside manner. She was always formal but compasionate. Dr. Lam
on the other hand seems more Urban, straight out of a major ER. She is more
confrontational when the saftey of her patients are in question. She seems
very comfortable and eager to deal with offworld medicine, and has a fast
paced demeanor. She too is compassionate....but won't let a loss of a patient
effect her, if others need her attention at the same momment. Some may feel
it makes her less feeling, but she obviously has dealt with trauma before
seeing how fast she reacts critical situations. Would have loved to see both
characters work together....but you never know.... with SG1.

When they used the defibulator....they should have exposed Vala's thoracic area. I was suprised they let that slide. But Lexa got all the terminology down
perfectly. I just wished they at least had a medical consultant to make things
more accurate. Overall Lexa did excellent on her part and had a air of credibility
as Dr. Lam. (My guess she has extensive ER experience and medical research.)

I like Dr. Lam. I've never watched Andromeda, so my only experience with LD's acting came from The 4400. I think her acting here is fine. I also like that the character isn't a Janet clone, which I would find insulting, and that she has more personality than Brightman.

You're kidding, right? So all actors that play docs on TV/movies have "extensive ER experience and medical research"? ROFL

If that were the case, perhaps they would get something as simple as a code done correctly. You're right about about defibbing on bare skin, but what about gel pads or just gel? And how about intubation? I don't recall her asking for an injection of Lidocaine.....etc, etc.

Every show with a doc in it has a medical advisor/consultant and so far this season, the SG-1 med advisor has been fast asleep.

As for Ms. Doig's acting, I'll withhold final judgement until I've seen her in more than one or two episodes.

August 2nd, 2005, 10:02 AM

ER experience in the sense that she can at least visit one and ask questions of folks that work there. She obviously won't be allowed to treat people but she can watch folks interact. At least doing some research would help. Though I don't know if Lexa does such things. I just can speculate.

They could have done the proceedure more accurately, maybe having
Lexa do all the other stuff would have taken to much time and if it were
done, would have been edited anyway. Hopefully they will be more careful in
future eppys.

Hi guys I thought to start a appreciation thread for the new doctor.What has been said in GateWorld is that her name is Carolyn Lam. She is Stargate Command's new chief medical officer and the daughter of General Landry.She is at the top of her field -- intelligent, quick-witted, and she doesn't take guff from anyone."And I saw the one picture of her on the gateworld homepage Click here (http://www.gateworld.net/news/2005/02/lexadoigcastonistargatesg-.shtml) and she is pretty hot !! :D Here is her fan site: Lexa Doig fan site (http://lexadoig.org/) So I think that this is one of the positive things that is going to happen in the ninth season You can post your thoughts about Lexa Doig in here and you can post some pictures in here but don't make them to big !! I found this one on the gateworld homepage.She is hot.I hope she'll have the same haircolor on stargate as in this picture:D:

Wow, I am totally ready to learn more about Carolyn. Whenever she appears on screen, I'm all like, "cool - now we'll learn something."

Time for more Dr. Lam.

I loved how Lexa sees her character...it really adds another dimension
to Dr Lam....

This is from the Sci Fi interview.....


Lexa Doig
Dr. Carolyn Lam

Q: What is the most interesting thing you've found about playing the character of Dr. Carolyn Lam? The hardest thing about playing the character?

Doig: The most interesting thing (and, incidentally, the most disturbing thing) about playing Lam is discovering that she and I are a lot alike in many ways. The hardest thing about that is I find her choices in regards to her relationships to be a bit immature. I wouldn't make those choices, so it's hard for me to find the justifications for them.

But then again, my relationships with my loved ones always take precedence over work. I think, for Carolyn, that the importance she places on her career is a defense mechanism because she doesn't know how to handle her personal baggage.

Is it me or does the new Doc seem quite depressing!
She does not seem to have any enthusiasm.

I kinda like her, but her character really needs more development. This is NOT a negative post in any way - I do like her.

I don't find her depressing. I agree that she's not got much enthusiasm, but she does have drive, which is enough for me. She's definitely driven.

She seems to be in medicine for the intellectual challenge, which I do like to see cos it makes a nice change; it's more common for female TV doctors to be motivated more by their desire to help people than by their dispassionate intellectual side.

Yeah! Filipina in scifi! Okay, she's only half Filipino, but it's something.

Dr. Lam seems like a cool character to me. Even though she needs to crack a smile every now and again, the way she interacts with everyone and her relationship with her father is definitely worth watching.

Dr. Janet Fraiser was serious also, but that's how a doctor usually is. I don't think Dr. Carolyn Lam is any different, she's just as serious as Dr. Fraiser was. I enjoy her on the show and would like to see more of her.
