Eh, average episode. Still can't stand Donna. Sontarans should be good.

May I join?
And is Sontaron (or whatever his name is) the fat thing you see at the end of the preview?

It's not a single person, they're a race like Cybermen or Daleks or whatever. They're the things that look like potatoes, and their heads tend to implode when they die. They're all clones, but that's only mentioned a couple of times, so it might be retconned, or just not mentioned at all. They're in The Time Warrior, The Sontaran Experiment and The Two Doctors, which I've seen, and The Invasion of Time, which I've not.

He's got limited telepathic abilities, been shown quite a few times, in both the old and new series.

Unlikely, since there's that "Doctor-lite" episode to come which will be the 3 companions bickering in the TARDIS for 45 minutes. Oh joy.

I was going to reply with one of the catchphrases in capital letters, but I honestly can't think of one. SUCCESS.

Bad episode, I thought. This is probably because after seeing the head guard in last weeks preview, I assumed that he was the awesome captain from the previous Ood two-parter. I was dissapointed, but I thought it would be okay when he said to leave the Doctor to him. I was hoping he was the guy I was thinking of, but then he went all crazy with a crane. Big dissapointment for me.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

That just about sums up my reaction.

Anyway, last night's episode continued the current series tradition of being bland and mediocre while trying to get a few giggles from any 3 year olds that may be watching.

The Green Death is quality, the Jon Pertwee episodes with Jo as his companion are probably the best in the entire series.

Well I liked the ood episode. The supporting characters brought it down but the creativeness of the ood made it for me. I love how they hold their brains in their hands.

Christ. I only meant to ask if they'd said why the Cybermen were there.

Also, have now got 8 or nine DVDs. Any DVD announcements?

Not much. Invasion of Time is out on the 5th, both by itself and part of a Sontaran box set with The Time Warrior, The Sontaran Experiment and The Two Doctors. Waiting to see if the box is all 4 individual DVDs bound together, or a posh one like the Davros collection, before I order it.

There's a K9 box set out in June, too, with The Invisible Enemy and the pilot of K9 and Company.

Might be worth a look I suppose. however if they show K9 and Co I'm not so sure.

United Intelligence Taskforce? Get fucked, it's United Nations Intelligence Taskforce.

Best episode of the season so far, although I've no doubt Moffat's two parter later on will be better.

Well this season's been a fucking dissapointment. That one was okay, but not nearly interesting enough for me. At least part two seems a lot better.

Yeah because the UN don't want to be associated with the show anymore. Still, you'd think they would make up a new word for the N.

I liked it better when they just called it UNIT. At least then you could pretend it was still United Nations Intelligence Taskforce.

This means whoever's in charge won't be able to phone Geneva anymore D:

Let's have discussion about something other than whatever episode was on last for a change.

What's everyone's favourite season/period of the show? For me it's the 3rd Doctor and Jo Grant episodes, from season 8 to season 10, because Jo's more or less the best companion, Pertwee is one of the best Doctors, I can never decided between him and Troughton for best, and The Master is in loads of episodes.

The only episode I didn't really like from that era was Carnival of Monsters, since it was a bit ridiculous even for Doctor Who, but there's loads of quality episodes like The Daemons, The Curse of Peladon and The Three Doctors, to name a few.

Series 4, Tenth Doctor. Gee last week's episode was swell.

Seriously though it's hard to really pick on for me since I've only seen the new series and the first doctor's serials. I much liked the very first series though. Ian and Barbara were awesome companions I thought and Susan was hilarious. "Arh! My ankle!"

Gallifrey One reports that a Torchwood radio drama will be on Radio 4 this summer.

Might be worth a listen if it'll fill in plot holes or bridge to the next series or something, but otherwise I think I'd give it a miss.

More DVDs on the way:

The Brain of Morbius: July 21

The Trial of a Time Lord box set: August 18

Four To Doomsday: September 15

The War Machines: October 13

Battlefield: November 17

FUCK YEAH THE WAR MACHINES. Battlefield and Trial of a Time Lord sound good, too. Battlefied because it has Lethbridge-Stewart, and Trial because the plot sounds decent, even though I can't stand Colin Baker.

I saw it a long time ago and I thought it was good then. I remember Sabalom Glitz being an interesting character. I can't quite remember how it ended everything though and the small amounts that I do remember make me think, "what the hell?".

^^ I agree with pretty much everything you said. Especially the episode with spliced in black and white lost footage. Which was that again?

"The Three Doctors" has footage from old episodes, if that's what you mean, but if you mean episodes that only exist in black and white, since the colour footage is lost, then it could be a few of them. Planet of the Daleks springs to mind, and I'm sure there's a few more.
