    Great start for David Tennant as the Doctor.

    I really liked this episode, it had a great storyline and ending. Plus the music really stood out to me.

    Super enjoyable, but somewhat padded story. Tennant is super as the Doctor, and I can't wait to see where he takes it. From the minute he wakes up, he just IS the Doctor. Can't complain. Really can't. Sad about Harriet's turn, but it was fantastic seeing her again anyway. And UNIT! Back in force!!! Oh, this has been a long time coming, this new Doctor Who, and it's only just hitting its stride.

    This is the Doctor... it is supposed to be cheesy...

    David Tennant is wonderful as the doctor... I didn't think he could pull it off but he really resonates with me. Troughton, Baker and bits of Davison rolled into one...

    I was looking at http://www.drwho-online.co.uk/ and in the upcoming releases it stated that the DVD for series 2 volume 1 will have the christmas invasion and new earth on it. So this means that The Christmas Invasion is officially a series 2 episode. This therefore means that eventually this thread will need to be moved...

    Yep, the production code for TCI is 2.X, which under the format being used here means the title should be

    The Christmas Invasion (28X)

    ^can be sorted next week when we get the new folder up.

    As I said in the other thread I thought this was awesome, David's doctor had some fantastic moments already, especially his "it is defended" and his whole rant at Hariet at the end where done to perfection. Cant wait to see more.

    Personal favourite bit: "No second chances", showed the contrast between fun loving and ruthlessness that both reside in this Doctor.

    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    That's handy, the only reason I came into this thread was to suggest that this be 28x00 or 28x01.

    We're labelling New Earth 28.1. It may not be strictly correct, but it's probably less confusing.

    We could label Christmas Invasion 28.0 though, and fit it into the s28 folder.

    Probably should be moved now, it is officially S28 so its up to a mod or Darren to decide whether t relabel it or keep it as it is.

    Gotta love the Doctor. Great fun. I've waited to watch until tonight when there wouldn't be any new Stargate. Now I'm glad that I did. Lots of juicy goodness.

    that was... Fantastic. it was something else.
    Spoiler:
    Before you met me I was a fairy princess
    I caught frogs and called them prince
    And made myself a queen
    Before you knew me I traveled 'round the world
    I slept in castles and fell in love
    Because I was taught to dream

    I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
    To capture tinkerbell
    They were just fireflies to the untrained eye
    But I could always tell

    I believe in fairytales and dreamers dreams like bed sheet sails
    And I believe in Peter Pan and miracles
    And anything I can to get by
    And fireflies...

    I was originally a bit nervous. This is my first change of the Doctor; however, it was wondeful. DT did a wonderful job, and I can't complain about the episode itself.

    My only rant is the number of commercials on SciFi is ridiculous. The episode dragged only because the commercial breaks were sometimes longer than the episode clips.

    I almost fell asleep during a couple of those commercial breaks.

    Did Skiffy snip stuff out of the ep? I don't remember anything SPECIFIC missing, but I'm not good at noticing stuff like that.
