In the united kingdom timezone, only 17 hours and 15 minutes before David Tennant fully takes over. What is everyone going to be doing tonight? This thread began 2.21am england time. I cant sleep :cameron: Counting down...

It's currently 2:38am Scotland time. :D I'm just about to watch a couple of Half Life: AG match demos.

I'll be (hopefully) sitting tuned into BBC1 at 7:15pm. I'll be recording, just in case. ;)

9.30am on the South Coast, the Daughter is at her dad's, the boyfriend has been warned and threatened to within an inch of his life about phoning me between 7.15 and 8.15, Mother's still making up her mind whether to join me on the sofa or not, the wine is cooling.

I'm ready, bring it on

I'm sorely tempted to dose my youngest with Calpol, Piriton, Ibuprofen and every other sleep-encouraging drug in the house. Anything to get him to settle down nicely before 7pm.

The Gruesomes are in UK with their dad, and apparently since they got there on Thursday they have been asking if they can watch Dr. Who today.

I'm alone, got the vid ready for my friend in a part of Germany which doesn't get BBC - the phone will be off the hook and I won't be answering the door.

Very excited here.

No :(. If he were, I'd let him stay up and watch it anyway, with the show itself as the bribe. He's prefectly capable of having a tantrum at any time though, even when he's getting a treat. Whoever coined the phrase "terrible twos" couldn't count, possibly because they were so frazzled by the ghastly behaviour of their THREE-year-old.

I believe the term is "traumatic three's" :P. This ep has a "Fear Factor" of 4 according to the BBC (as did "The Doctor Dances") So should be pretty awesome.

I've set the sky+ and will be shushing everyone in the living room while it's on. :D

fantastic!

The Gruesomes called me right after it finished - they like the new Doctor, which is a relief.

Mads: didn't anyone tell you? Terrble twos go on until they turn into terrible teenagers...

Thanks, MC. Maybe I should just take the drugs myself :eek:

But... I managed to watch it and not one peep from youngest :) Firstborn, on the other hand, who was staying up to watch it as a special treat, spent the time asking "which ones are the baddies?" "why isn't Rose's mummy going with her?" "what's that?" "who's he?" and all that jazz. Still, we all enjoyed it :D. David Tennant is lovely. :D:D:D

Hi MC, glad the gruesome's liked it I'm still trying to train the Daughter in sci fi but not having much luck

Wait till they hit 11 going on 16 Madeline

Edit - Is it me (Oh god I'm a TOG) or did DT's Scottish accent break through a couple of times

Yup, I caught it too, never mind, perhaps its meant to do that, maybe this Doctor is part cockney part Scottish :D Won't happen next time though Its in Scotland so the Doctor speaks in a Scottish accent (So does Rose, well, she tries) so David goes with his natural accent.

Im glad I taped this episode, it was worth it, as Im sure the whole series will be. Im anxiously awaiting the one with Sarah-Jane Smith. Lets hope Doctor Who will be here to stay for another 40 years!!!

School Reunion is gonna rock! I cant see the show getting cancelled for a long long time, money isnt an issue (I think Im right in saying a network in Canada is also funding the show and working alongside it) and its ratings are through the roof, so I think we will see at least up to S35, which would probably put us in the 13th and last Doctor's era.

I think that they'll get around that some how, probably something to do with the Ring of Rassilon

I can't wait to see Sarah-Jane either, she's the assistant I remember the best

As for Sarah, I dont know whether Im more looking forward to her, or the catty arguments between her and Rose :D
