So gay. They give any reason for this? Is it just to try and keep doctor who interest up over a longer span of time? They normally air the new episodes of sarah jane adventures later in the year I thought they used that show to tide people over until the next season.
Moffat want's more "event" episodes, and less stand alone filler. He's decided the best way to do it is to have two premiers and two finales. Why he just doesn't, you know, not make any filler, I don't know.
Up to the seventh doctor now by the way. Sixth doctor was pretty terrible. His period was just a shambles really haha. I'm not sure if I disliked their direction they wanted to take the character or just colin baker's portrayal but something wasn't right there.
It is definitely NOT Baker's fault. He's incredible in the audio dramas. Like, "best Doctor ever" incredible. It's the writing, and the production and fucking EVERYTHING else, but it's not Baker.
And what's the deal with the valeyard? What is he like the doctor's final persona who turns out to be evil? Or a doctor number 12 and a half? lol It'd be pretty strange to see the doctor take on an evil persona. As was evident in 'the twin dilemma'.
Potential future incarnation. Doubt we'll ever see him again as the Dream Lord is the new "Evil Doctor". Unless they just combine both characters or something, which I'd definitely be okay with.
Peri should have died too I reckon. Not because I disliked her I think she did the best of what she was given to work with. I mean with them writing the doctor as such a bastard all peri could ever do was try not to catch the worst of the doctor's mood haha but it would have been really awesome and disturbing to leave her the way she was at the end of mindwarp.
But then she couldn't live with KING BRIAN BLESSED, one of the best bits of his run.
One last thing... did anyone think that part in "the mysterious planet' was hilarious when the doctor reverts to the third doctor and says something like "my head hurt abominably sarah jane" and peri replies "doctor i'm not sarah jane and you're lying under the remains of.......a robot"
....no?....just me....ok then.
I vaguely recall a similar Fifth Doctor scene. It might have been Seventh, actually, I'm not sure.
