    Default Re: Sci-Fi Channel passes on Doctor Who?

    I'm an American and I loved Dr. Who. . .translated okay with me.

    Tom Baker was the best. . had a crush on Peter Davison. Sort of disappeared around here though, sadly.

    Post SF Crowsnest -- HUGO Nominees & Free Dr Who E-books

    From SF Crowsnest:

    DAILY NEWS

    Hugo nominees in short fiction categories available online for 2005.

    20/05/2005 . Source: Jessica Martin

    The organisers of Interaction, the 63rd World Science Fiction Convention, have written in to point out that works nominated in the short fiction categories of this year's Hugo Awards are available online.

    To facilitate those who wish to find the online versions, the Interaction Web site now contains a page of links to the various sites where the stories are held.

    "The short fiction categories of the Hugo Awards have always been among the most difficult to vote for because the stories are published over the period of a year and in various publications," said Vincent Docherty, Co-Chairman of Interaction. "However, with the coming of the Internet, authors and publishers have increasingly elected to make their nominated works available online, in most cases at no charge. We are delighted that the best work of 2004 is now more accessible, and that members will be able to enjoy all of the stories as well as having a more informed choice when they come to vote."

    Default Brits love Doctor Who - official

    Doctor Who has topped a poll to find the best British fantasy show. The recently-revived science fiction drama beat comedy classic Red Dwarf into second place in a survey of 4,000 readers of SFX magazine.

    SFX magazine editor Dave Bradley told BBC online that Doctor Who was "a great British institution which has entertained people for generations... The recent series has just introduced a whole new generation to the concept and reignited our love for it."

    Other series to make it onto SFX's top 10 include cult classic The Prisoner (5), and old favourites such as Blake's 7, Quatermass (7), surely due for a revival in these anxious times1, and The Avengers (9). Most of the places in the list are occupied by genre classics but Channel 4's hip vampire drama Ultraviolet lends the run-down a more contemporary edge. ®

    1. Doctor Who
    2. Red Dwarf
    3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    4. Blake's 7
    5. The Prisoner
    6. Sapphire and Steel
    7. Quatermass
    8. Ultraviolet
    9. The Avengers
    10. Robin of Sherwood

    Glad to see Doctor Who came first and Ultraviolet was in there. Shame they never made a second series of that.

    I can't think of a better all round SciFi show than Dr Who.

    I loved Blake 7 but haven't seen it for many years. Red dwarf / HHGTTG are both funny and brilliant in fact interesting that all top three shows are a mixture of humour and straight SciFi. You guys have great taste.

    Glad to see Red Dwarf and Dr Who at the top they are so cool. But Sapphire and Steel, wasn't that in the early seventies? I don't ever remember watching repeats of it either. And robin of sherwood hmmmm....are they making it up!

    I'm stunned and very happy to see Ultraviolet there, despite only having a single series. (It didn't get cancelled, the people making it just decided not to make a second series. Grrrr.)

    Should I be embarrassed to admit that I loved Robin of Sherwood and never missed an episode if I could avoid it?

    I plead irresponsible youth - I was in my early teens and didn't know any better.

    It was superbly loopy though - all that stuff with a dude wearing a stag's head on his bonce and dispensing wisdom while standing in front of a huge spotlight and smoke machine. Add a slightly maniacal/borderline doolally Sheriff of Nottingham and a suitably lunkheaded sidekick, all the requisite stereotype merry men etc. etc.

    Mind you, I've caught a few episodes on ITV3 since then, and wondered what on earth I was thinking back when it first aired.

    Come on; you know Ultraviolet would've gone down the tubes in a second series. I love the fact it took a graceful bow at the end of its run. Didn't the guy direct Dalek? Joe Ahearne, I mean.

    They redid Quatermass just this year. BBC 3, live broadcast: fantastic stuff. Had David Tennant in it and all. Love Dr Who, but the new Quatermass knocked the early episodes of this new series into a cocked hat for tension, although Who got its stuff together for The Empty Child, right enough.
    Behold the majesty that is...GERALD!

    TV "Dr. Who" and "Angel" news from Visimag

    From the Visimag/TV Zone Magazine website:

    http://www.visimag.com/tvzone/t194_news01.htm

    News: Updates
    Doctor Who and Angel News

    What's happening in the world of Cult TV…
    • The BBC have confirmed that the new season of Doctor Who will see the return of robot companion K-9, played once again by John Leeson. The character will appear in Episode Three, School Reunion, alongside Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.

    Who producer Phil Collinson commented on K-9’s return, noting that, "A whole generation fondly remember him as an ever-faithful companion and best friend to Tom Baker's Doctor. I hope the new generation of viewers will fall in love with him in the same way – I'm sure he's going to prove an invaluable help to the Doctor in the fight against intergalactic evil."

    School Reunion, which also guest stars Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Anthony Stewart Head, sees David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor investigating sinister goings-on at a modern comprehensive school, and taking on the evil Krillitanes.

    • Doctor Who and Red Dwarf will be coming to an even smaller screen near you, thanks to a licensing deal between BBC Worldwide and ROK Player which is set to see a number of BBC properties released for full-length, full-screen play on mobile phones. Among the initial titles licensed as part of the deal are Doctor Who: The Five Doctors and the Red Dwarf episodes Marooned (Series Three), Quarantine (Series Five) and Cassandra (Series Eight). Other shows are set to be released in coming months; TV Zone will provide details of the upcoming titles as they become available.

    • A conclusion to the cliffhanger ending of Angel’s fifth and final season may be in the offing, as news broke on the Whedonesque website that Angel writer/producer Tim Minear is set to pen a TV movie based around the popular character of Spike.

    ‘I had lunch with Joss [Whedon, Buffy creator] and he asked me if I wanted to write and direct some blond Vampire movie thing’, Minear noted. ‘Should I do it? (I of course said yes right off, still…) Anything under 13 hours scares me. And anything over 13 hours... um. I got nothin.’ Although the news hasn’t been officially confirmed by The WB or Whedon’s Mutant Enemy production house, it seems likely that something’s in the offing.

    Spike, the peroxide Vampire played by James Marsters, first appeared on Buffy The Vampire Slayer before making the transition to Angel in Season Five. The actor is currently working on the new season of The WB’s Smallville, playing the classic Superman villain Brainiac.

    Default The 10 th Doctor David Tennant Shares His Enthusiasm For The Role

    http://scifipulse.net/Dr_Who/D_Tennent_ONWHO.html

    In an exclusive interview for Dreamwatch magazine David Tennant reveals his thoughts on playing the 10 th incarnation of ‘The Doctor’ and reveals why he thinks the Sci Fi Genre is proving so popular with viewers around the world.

    One thing that shocked many viewers of the new series was the sudden departure of Christopher Eccelston the 9 th Doctor, and when asked if he would be likely to leave in the same way Tennant is cautious yet also somewhat understanding.

    “I’m doing 14 episodes, and we’ll see what happens. It’s 13 episodes plus one Christmas Special.” Revealed David Tennant for DW Magazine. In regard to reports of Tennant having signed a 2 year contract, he makes no mention of that, however with Tennant being somewhat more of a fan of the show than Eccelston was, it maybe safe to assume that he will stick around for awhile if he enjoys the work.

    One thing that Tennant has which maybe Eccelston didn’t is a proper understanding of the Doctor Who series, the actor when accepting the role made it very clear that he was a fan of the series during his youth and was more than happy to share his memories of his favourite Doctor Who.
