Doctor Who / Class (BBC America)


#81

The new season is good to start out with, it lacks all the compounding inside references to events in previous seasons since it’s a brand new doctor and writer.

I liked the episode right after Vincent van Gogh’s, where the Doctor has to live like a normal bloke while he’s cut off from the TARDIS.

Since we don’t have a Torchwood thread (they’re anagrams anyway), I’ll just post this here:

They’re getting a ton of good writers for the show, a lot of American ones which will be nice since I heard that most of the series is going to be based in America (LA I think). Plus they said since they’ll be on premium cable, the series will up the violence/adult themes appropriately now that they don’t have as strict of guidelines to work on.

No worries, Slow. First, it had more info that I did, and second, it had Captain Jack!

Since Captain Jack was brought up:

And for the record, I never really liked the picture. There are so many better pictures of Jack. :wink:


#88

Pure awesomeness Cody!! The Japanese voices at the end were good too. Nice to see that they are somewhat similar to the tone of the originals. And where did that gun come from? :laugh: :laugh:

Here’s another good one with Jack and Ianto. I love the intro.


#94

Another beautiful one. The intro was great.


#95

Yeah, it was very nice. I loved Children of Earth, but I can really see why so many fans were pissed off by it. Truth be told. I wasn’t happy about Ianto dying either. Though you know their romance was destined for tragedy, just like every other one Jack had. But there were better ways to handle it, or he should have at least got to go out guns blazing. God did I cry then…lol

I understand the “Naked Hide and Seek” rule also applies to working at the TAN offices… :wink:

Lol, I need to get a job there then… Seriously though, after watching Torchwood so much, I don’t think Jack was really that bi or omni…

[size=4]Death to the Daleks![/size]
Doctor Who’s newest battlefield? A BBC graphic novel!
Tue, 5 October, 2010

When the UK’s largest TV station, the BBC, decided to create their first graphic novel, they obviously had to choose which of their hit shows to adapt. Would it be ‘Top Gear’, a captivating series about driving cars? Would it be ‘Mary Queen of Shops’, in which a retail expert revives floundering boutiques? Or would it perhaps be ‘Doctor Who’, the longest running sci-fi show in TV history? The choice was clear.

Unfortunately, ‘Mary Queen of Shops’ must have said no, because the BBC went with ‘Doctor Who’. Available stateside starting today, the graphic novel “The Only Good Dalek” finds Doctor Who’s reigning Time Lord once again fighting the series’ most popular foe, the vicious robotic Daleks. The story takes place on a base called Station 7, the most secret location in all of Earth-Space, where humans send all captured Dalek equipment for analysis. Oh, and also, they send captured Daleks there too. So, as you can imagine, it’s a pretty bad scene when the Daleks learn the base exists.

The graphic novel features the current incarnation of the Doctor, as played by Matt Smith on the show. And the book’s title is actually taken from a longer quote: “The only good Dalek is a dead Dalek.” Which is actually a pretty harsh statement.

You’d never hear anything that mean from ‘Mary Queen of Shops’.
