So what does everyone think of SciFi carrying it?

I just saw the eps and all I have to say is YEAH BABY! reminds me of when I was younger watching the Tom Baker stint as the Doctor, can't wait to see the Daleks.

You can say that again (and again, and again and again...)!

THE DOCTOR IS DEFINITELY IN THE HOUSE!

Cheers to Scifi Channel for bringing us what promises to be a wonderful, excellent ride to Dr.Who's universe...Hail to the Time Lord! Whoooooopeeee!
Dr. Who rocks!

Just saw the premiere (Rose) and the follow up ep (The End of the World) and I am definitely looking forward to the next one. Love the good Doctor and Rose.

Edit: Season One DVDs for Dr.Who will be out July... gotta save...

I kind of liked her. From what I remember of the Tom Baker stint, she seems to fit right in as a Who Babe. I also liked what's his names portrayal of the Doctor. He seemed to have just the right amount of whimsy.

I watched the two hour block last night on Scifi. At the end of the first episode I was thinking this show wasn't my cup of tea. ETA: A little too campy and kind of silly I thought.

But THEN....I stuck it out for the second hour and really enjoyed "End of The World"

Wow, I just checked the IMDB to see how long the original ran. I knew it was the world's longest running Sci-Fi show ever, but 1963-1989! Wow, that's before Star Trek came out! And here in the U.S. we are acting like 10 years for SG-1 is amazing.

I got home in time to watch the last 1/4 of the show, saw a couple of minutes and then decided to wait until the next episode started and then REALLY got into it. When I was younger it did take an episode or two to get into it. Strangely, I was the same way with BSG and no I'm totally adicted to it.

Ok, I saw both Doctor Who episodes last night...

Most of the other episodes I have seen was The 4th Doctor, The Trial Of A Time Lord, and Doctor Who: The Movie.

Personally, a wee bit corny for my taste. But it wa still cool.

I liked the episode The End Of The World better than the pilot, but the pilot was none-the-less efficient.

Next weeks episode: The Unquiet Dead

And I gotta say...it was dissapointing. :/

For one..the whole thing felt forced. The new Doctor smiles all the time practically (I mean come on...that one wood person DIES to save everyone and he SMILES before leaving????) His personality feels VERY forced...very fake. And the whole thing comes off corny...maybe..just maybe if the Doctor had acted more real it would have taken away some of the cheese-ball of it all.

It's just wayyy too forced. (that and it screamed of Farscape...even the website looks like farscape)

Doctor Who has always been a little offbeat and corny, that's part of its charm. When I first saw Rose last year I was put off by the amount of comedy in the episode but the things calmed downed quickly in future episodes. The second half of the series contains some very unique and inspired stories. I would try to stick around to Episode 6, the only one set in the US, where things take a darker turn.

I missed the two episodes last night. I was dog tired from work. Couldn’t even manage to stay awake to rewatch Ripple Effect last night which is one of the few S9 Stargate episodes I really liked. Woke up right at 8pm. Saw like a minute worth of the first Dr. Who episode. Went right back to sleep and didn’t wake up again until the end of the Atlantis episode....

I’ll be watching tomorrow night though when they repeat it. I’ve just got to see what the fuss is all about when it comes to Dr. Who. :D

I remember watching Dr Who as a kid on PBS with my dad so I have been really looking forward to seeing Dr. Who on SciFi.

I was a little disappointed in the first episode (Rose) Friday night but I did enjoy The End Of The World more. I'm glad we are finally getting to see Dr. Who on TV in the US again. I hope the ratings are good so SciFi will continue to show Dr. Who.

Glad you enjoyed the premiere. As mentioned by others who've already seen the entire series (Brit and US) it takes a couple of episodes to get into but the episodes improve.

We get a fair amount of Rose and Doctor character development throughtout the series.
* Why did Rose decide to join the Doctor when he mentioned time travel?
* Why is the Doctor always easily irritable and melancholy?

RavenaS

When isn't the Doctor irritable and melancholy?

When he's wearing a 14 foot scarf? :D

Actually, this Doctor has a bit of bitterness to him the others lacked. Oh you had your erascibility, and lots of egomania going on, even some petulance, but past Doctors all had a lot of social graces this one ignores. For good reason, mind.

As for the mad grinning someone mentioned, that was lovingly (or not-so lovingly) referred to in fandom as the Doctor's gurning. He does it a lot and it is OTT, but now that I've seen the whole series and know his character arc I can understand why. Suffice to say, it's not all sweetness and light in the Whoniverse these days. It gets prophetically darker as the series progresses and things are revealed.

I'm thinking my fellow Stargate fans will be tuning into "Dalek" when that airs (in about 4 weeks). If for no other reason than Anna-Louise Plowman (Sarah Gardner) plays a crucial role. I got to see it via a live internet stream last year, came in about 2 minutes into the show in the midst of a crucial confrontation. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. Christopher Eccleston can act (though it did make me fear for my beloved heroic Doctor... not quite the same man I always thought I knew). But be warned, the corniest moment in voice acting history is on display... from an American actor no less.

Part of his character is a defence, a lot of the smiling and fun loving is all false, this doctor is darker and dirtier, and this is no clearer than in dalek, Bad Wolf and The Parting Of The Ways As for his acing skills, they are easily better than most in sci fi, Chris Eccleston is one of the better actors out there. But if you dont like him David Tennant in "The Christmas Invasion" will impress you but it certainly works better if you look at the series as one constant arc, the indevidual episodes may seem less than important (with about 5 exeptions) but by looking at 13 episodes as one, the show is "FANTASTIC" :D Think 24, not always great on their own, but put together.. same goes for the later series of DS9 everything flows, much better than SG1 IMO

I think you have a valid criticism, GhostPoet, up to a point. I personally didn't see what you're seeing when I first watched this episodes, but looking back on them having seen the rest of the season it seems like Eccleston's performance is much more forced than in the later episodes.

It could be as simple as his relaxing more as he went along, although some fans have a theory that his strict devotion to The Method meant he was conciously acting like someone taking on a persona to impress someone else (i.e. Eccleston's smile seems forced because the Doctor is forcing himself to appear happier than he really feels Deep Inside His Soul so as not to alienate Rose). You'll notice, for example, that it's the smiling and laughing that seems forced, not his anger at Cassandra or his despair at being the last of his kind.

Whichever, I can assure you that the things that annoy you about his performance are significantly lessened in Eps 3 and 4, all but gone in 5 and disappeared never to be seen again from 6 on. No doubt, had he stayed on, Eccleston would have kept going from strength to strength.

silverdamascus
March 20th, 2006, 07:10 AM
They mix it a lot, there are lighter episodes and certainly some darker ones with very little in the way of grinning in them. Some of which are really well done.

Nuallain, I never thought of it quite like that though it makes a great deal of sense.

I always felt that it was that way perhaps because it was the way that Rose, as our link into the show saw him at first. Then as they spend more time together we see nuances and darker bits of his personality come in as she learns more about his past and who he is. Just like the 'verse that they explore itself gets a little darker and raises more questions once she realises its not all fun and games.

Oh, I think the smiling is important. The Doctor is putting on a front that most people never see through, but:Wait till you see the moment in The Long Game when the facade drops instantly. One second he's all smiles and snarky comments, then as soon as nobody's watching him, the whole facade just goes away on a dime. It's actually almost scary, because you get to see the reality behind the goofiness in that moment.

Don't forget also that there needs to be a little bit of a lighter side as in the UK Doctor Who is a family show aimed mainly at 11 and 12 year olds.

This is backed up by the fact that to coincide with Series two there will be a CBBC (Childrens BBC) series called Totally Doctor Who (http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/content/articles/2006/03/06/beonashow_drwho_feature.shtml).

Speaking of smiles to sad: The Parting of the Ways anyone? His expression goes from "I'm a genius of to save the world" glee to an expression that you just can't define, so incredibly well. That moment makes you question so much of who the Doctor actually is and simultaneously not care because of what he's willing to do to save someone that he loves.

I think that moment really says a lot both about Eccleston's talents and who his Doctor is.

Don't worry. There's plenty of spoilers on this forum.
You can go through all the trouble of using spoilers tags and the next person who replies to you puts your comments out in the open and starts a whole discussion on it within that thread.

Unfortunately, there has been, at times, little spoiler consideration here.
I tried creating a thread for just the classic series stories.
Didn't work. People just couldn't help themselves.

Well according to the Interview Thomas Vitale (VP of Programming for SciFi)did with SciFi Overdrive a couple weeks ago, they have a new series to try out this summer with the Stargates... Eureka. SciFi has a page up about it in their news section.

It's supposed to be sort of an X Files meets the Village? Strange occurrences in a small town filled with uber geniuses. Sounds a bit like the Trust's covert ops in that town to built Prometheus. They ordered a 13 episode season, I believe.

In the Fall they have the Dresden Files to try out (wizard detective solves crimes?).

No news on when Doctor Who Series Two would air, assuming it gets picked up. SciFi is looking to extend their original programming to year round. So that means split seasons of the Stargates (taking summer and winter); full season of BSG (fall through winter); Doctor Who this spring; and the newbie shows to fill out the schedule.

The characters are so likeable and I've only seen 2 eps. but both were really interesting and fun. I love the humour and the wacky stuff (i.e. plastic coming to life :eek:) and I'm happy that there is a show with new eps (at least new for the US) to look forward to while I'm waiting for SG-1 and Atlantis :D

He changes his body and some of his personality every once in a while, yes (in the series it's "regeneration", in real life it's casting a new actor whenever the incumbent wants to move on). The version you're seeing on SciFi is the Ninth Doctor.
Anyway, welcome to the fandom and the fun that is Doctor Who!

I watched the two hour block last night on Scifi. At the end of the first episode I was thinking this show wasn't my cup of tea. ETA: A little too campy and kind of silly I thought.

But THEN....I stuck it out for the second hour and really enjoyed "End of The World"

Glad to hear it keeps getting better.....based on "End of The World" I'll be watching next week. :D

Hubs and I were the same way. The first ep was a little OTT in the campy department, but we decided to stick it out too and were very impressed with the second episode. Will definitely be sticking around. Looks like it was a good thing that they initially aired it in a two hour block.

I tried watching the show, and I mean I really tried but I couldn't get through 10 minutes of it before changing the channel. ( maybe even less than 10)

I guess it's just not my cup of tea with too much corn and cheese:rolleyes:

If you didn't make it past the first 10 minutes of the first episode I can see why. Hubs almost gave up too because the first ep was very silly, but he was really glad he waited and watched the second one. It was way better.

I'm glad you broght this up. There has been some discrepency over the Friday night repeat of TEOTW. The current set of bumper ads show SG1 at 8pm replacing the TEOTW this Fri. However SciFi's Schedulebot still says their is a repeat (http://www.scifi.com/schedulebot/index.php3?search_text=doctor+who) at 8pm.

I'm inclined to trust the commercials rather than Schedulebot which means you can catch the last repeat of the premiere late Thursday night .

When we met both Bakers at a Who convention (Tom and Colin), my husband asked Colin if he was going to try to break Tom's 7 year record as the Doctor... :D

Colin paused, smiled, and replied that he'd like to give it a try. ;) :)

I don't remember the exact details, but for whatever the reason - the BBC stopped airing the series; and either Colin's contract was not renewed, or he was not available when Sylvester McCoy took over as Doctor # 7. It was a very sad day to hear about Colin's "DrWHO" situation. Good for Sylvester, but sad for Colin. :(

When we met both Bakers at a Who convention (Tom and Colin), my husband asked Colin if he was going to try to break Tom's 7 year record as the Doctor... :D

Colin paused, smiled, and replied that he'd like to give it a try. ;) :)

I don't remember the exact details, but for whatever the reason - the BBC stopped airing the series; and either Colin's contract was not renewed, or he was not available when Sylvester McCoy took over as Doctor # 7. It was a very sad day to hear about Colin's "DrWHO" situation. Good for Sylvester, but sad for Colin. :(
I heard they wrongly blamed him for the show doing poorly, and fired him.

That would make for some rather interesting plot twists esp the first episode where we're introduced to the Dr being regenerated as a woman...of course, one of the new Dr's on-going quirks would be that she keeps misplacing things and has the constant feeling as if she's lost something...

New (Female) Dr. Who: I just feel as if I've lost something, but I just can't put a finger on it.
Sidekick: What do you think you've lost...
New (Female) Dr. Who: I think that it was a missile, but I just don't see how I could have lost a missle...
----
New (Female) Dr. Who: Oh great! I found what I've been looking for...
Sidekick: And what is that...
New (Female) Dr. Who: A philips-head screwdriver! (holds it up)

Anyway, one part of it is a thing in the corner of the page called The Cliche Counter which records four things:

Number of deaths on-screen
Times One or More Regulars Knocked Unconcious
Times One or More Regulars Imprisoned

and something else I can't actually remember. Anyway, all the counters are in the high hundreds now and edging toward the 1000 mark. So, yeah, companions find themselves getting trapped a lot.

I'd say the most intense Doctors were the Fourth and Seventh Doctors.

If those are your favored qualities of the character, check out Seasons 13 & 14, some of the best episodes in the whole series.


Or are the classic episodes more cornball? I can only remember one scene it's been so long. :)Depends on the producer, script editor, and actors.

Each era has its own charm for me. Whether you'll like any of them is subjective.

The production values are low, so don't expect much in visual effects.
The original Star Trek had much better production value than Doctor Who.

What I find engrossing is the conviction of some the actors on the show.
Even standing around crappy sets, props, and costumes, they really were able to suspend disbelief.
Particularly good was William Russell (Ian from Seasons 1 & 2) and Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor from Seasons 12 through 18). They really had conviction.

Frustratingly vague. Maybe she means that since TARDIS is a time machine (essentially) and she was already thinking of the words 'Bad Wolf' as a link between her and the doctor and she looked into its vortex that it was really her in the past that scattered the words from the beginning? Time can get really warped.
