Only managed to see that Doctor Who advert today...on youtube.

Is it possible to imagine Catherine Tate isn't in it? I mean I can tolerate one episode but the possibility of an entire series is like being a racist in the most ethnically cultured city.

I'm still pretending it isn't happening. It'll be a case of "LALALALA NOT LISTENING LALALA NOT HAPPENING BAD DREAM ALALALA" when she has a line.

I will guarantee that she says one of her catchphrases.

I want her to get brutally killed by something in the show. But since she is a main character she will stay alive for the series.

Having Martha Jones and Rose Tyler coming back as companions there is hope Tate won't continue on for another series.

I can't even remember Tate's character name in the show.

There's going to be an episode with just them in an out of control TARDIS, no Doctor. It'll quite possibly be the worst thing on TV ever.

Probably not important but I threw together the third part of my doctor who series I've been making. For anybody that wants it.

'Doctor Lite'.
Season two's one was shit, and season three's was great. Primarily because Blink centered around the Doctor anyway. They need to realise that's it's just no good without him.

Anyway, Torchwood was a very unexpected ending. I think that would be a good ending to the entire series rather than just a season because I know I'm going to hate the replacement characters. Although I do sort of think Owen isn't dead since you don't see him die and he seems okay with it. Plus, there's that white light, which didn't even fit in with what was happening.

Torchwood was alright. The season definitely hasn't been up to the standard of the 1st. Doctor Who tonight. Wouldn't expect much from it, or any of the season, really. That fact that Battlestar Galactica just started again sort of overshadows Doctor Who for me.

Had to stick the subtitles on for some bits in that one, quality was too poor. Still, just as good as the other 2.

Tate was much better than I was expecting. I mean, she wasn't good, but she's only as bad as Rose was. The monster fat things were really, really rubbish, though. Poor episode on the whole, but still better than I'd convinced myself it was going to be.

Also, OMFG ROSE.

Next episode looks good.

I think that episode revolved around comedy too much. Otherwise good.

I knew it was going to be a character you'd seen before, just because it was an odd shot, obviously designed to hide the face. There'd have been no reason to do it otherwise.

While the wait's gone on, I've been silent and watching for any newsflashes. None turned up, at least in the UK, so I'll take this as an opportunity to give a review.

Cast: The family seemed as dysfunctional as Martha's family was, although when the father's dead, the arguments just don't pop up as much (the actor who played Donna's father was terminally ill). The supernanny person seemed OK, if not a typical show of aliens making deals they can keep, but amusingly never do. Donna fitted in better than expected, but the miming bit was just silly, as well as the dozens of bags she'd packed. Look forward to finding about how the hell Rose ended up there (although Dad's overexcitement might put me off completely).

Monster: Nothing really terrifying, more a "Cute" element, although I guess that's taken away when they pop out your skin. If you ask me, just have it as a laxative pill, so you crap out your fat (and them as well).

Plot: Not as sinister as it has been. The common conversion element reappeared, but not really in an interesting way.

Overall rating: 3/5 as in OK.

I hope the Sonatarans make a mark, and the Daleks and Cybermen return. Imagine a three-way battle like that.

I'd put it down to either he not really being there, and just being an image like The Doctor was when he talked to her on the beach, or she's found a way to come through, but only for short periods of time, and The Doctor or a villain will end up pulling her through properly somehow, either deliberately or accidentally.

Also, I demand Davros for the finale.

Or, you know, something ridiculous like Sea Devils.

Actually, it's almost certain Davros will return, as Wikipedia says that the people who make the Doctor Who toys have announced a remote control Davros as part of their season 4 line, and that CBBC has reported that there's a villain matching his description, without actually giving his name.

Well, Catherine Tate wasn't all too bad, since I was expecting my eyes to melt whenever she came on screen. The only really cringing bit was when her and the Doctor was popping their heads up to look at the printer but kept missing eachother.

Clearly you're forgetting the miming. And the suitcases. And the "mate" bit.

So do you guys read any of the Doctor Who books
I've read one by Mike Tucker ( signed as well *ohhhh*) and he just gave me Sowglobe 7 due for release in september.
The Doctor And Marthat land in Snowglobe 7 ( he started writing it before Catherine Tate became his "mate" LOL ) where a disease is spreading throughout the dome oh and also a deadly creature from the first ice age wakes up to top it all of.
HAVEN'T STARTED READING IT YET ; )

Urh, that episode was pretty bad. Tried too hard to be funny.

And god! Decide weather you want your glasses on or off for crying out loud!! It's like every scene the villain was moving her glasses.

Expect more of the same. They've decided Doctor Who should be for fans of the likes of Catherine Tate and Little Britain, rather than fans of the original series.

I'm pretty sure that episode was just experimental.

Those little walking piles of shit were pretty annoying, though. And what really boils my piss is that they never got what was coming to them.

And the Doctor even said that she was violating a law of some sort. I for one think that it would have been awesome if the Judoon appeared and started massacring the little fuckers.

All of the new series is just filler, apart from the episodes with classic villains, anyway. They're all I watch it for. Having Sontarans AND Davros could have made this season great, if it hadn't been for Tate.

Oh c'mon, not every episode is going to be like that first one. Tate has toned down her character and aside from the occasional stupid joke she should be alright. And besides doesn't Martha come back from the sontaran episode onwards? Or is she only there for that double episode?

She'll be in episodes 4,5,6 and then the last two episodes of the series...
