View Full Version : The new Dr Who

A few days ago I watched the first episode of the new Dr Who series - Rose.

It's pretty damn good IMO and well up to today's standards while still holding true to the Dr Who's of the past, it really reminded me of Shaun of the Dead in some ways.

Christopher Eccleston is superb as the new Dr "all planets have a north" and Billy Piper makes a good start as the new companion.

We even get a Gestalt consciousness in the form of the Nestene.

I'm really looking forward to the start of the series on March 26th (April 5th Canada, unknown for the US at the moment). Of course if you know where to look you can see the first one now. Wink

Excellent.
Ever since I heard the rumours that Eddie Izzard was going to be the new doctoer when they announced the new series I was looking forward to it.
UK next saturday at 7pm yes?
I saw the pictures of Chris (the new doctor ) in his outfit and i thought thats a very conservative costume, it looks like hes headed to the pub! but its probably a better more contemporary feel.
Billie piper has worried me as a new companion, but i heard good things about her from the part she played in one of those tales (canterbury?) shown a while ago.
I was tempted to watch the leaked version, but i think i will wait. I will get annoyed if theres poor sound quality or poor visual quality etc.

Gestalt conciousness eh? sounds like a spoiler to me!

I was even tempted to do a doctor who themed Daemon hunters force. but with a doctor as the inquisitor, K9 and a few others Ace? maybe as the retinue. but how would you get away with the tardis??

Hows the theme tune Brim? they funked it up and messed it up? or does it still hold true?

I reckon it could be cool, but no-one will ever top Tom Baker (I watched some of the old episodes on my dads tapes). That man is crazy!

I can imagine him in a pub :D, he spends a lot of time running and grinning but he is a really really good doctor and makes me want to watch more.


Billie piper has worried me as a new companion, but i heard good things about her from the part she played in one of those tales (canterbury?) shown a while ago.

She is pretty good in this, not outstanding but not brainless and she can act so that's good thing.

The quality is very good ;) but you might as well wait.

Not really the Autons have been in at least two stories before.

A shiver ran through me, it's perfect. :cool:

I've never seen Dr. Who so I might watch it to see what all the fuss is about. Apparently lots of scenes from the new one was filmed in here in my home town of Cardiff. I wonder if I'll see any recognisable places, like our GW.

I was a bit worried, but I agree that it does look as though it could be pretty good, and ol' Billie isn't necessarily a liability. It certainly looks as though they've thought it all through, and wild horses won't be able to get me away from the TV that night.

Even so, I reckon they should have done it like this:

I thought it'd be a real let-down at first, but after watching the doctor who night earlier, and reading this thread, I'm now very excited. In my younger days I was fanatical about Dr Who. I think I might dig out that old book of monsters I had...

Still, BBC had better hope the show's a hit, since I heard it cost them around 10 mil :eek: .

It's one of my own little Photoshop projects - it's some random Shaolin monk's face on Tom Baker's body, a pagoda-shaped lamp instead of the TARDIS. I just get a kick out of stupid stuff like this.

I was one of the first to see Rose when it was leaked onto the internet. Mainly because I was in the right spot when the idiot posted it. From what I have read this series is going to be good and Chris Ecclestone is going to get even better as a Doctor and comes out on his own when he meets the Dalek in the sixth episode.

BTW if you want to ask any questions please do as I am a bit of a Whovian and managed to get over half the questions right on the Doctor Who Mastermind thing including Carrot Juice


Still, BBC had better hope the show's a hit, since I heard it cost them around 10 mil :eek: .

That is a lie, if you look at the type of video camera they are using which is a digibeta btw then you can tell that the budget is nowhere near as it has been rumoured. One rumour was a million per episode but it is not that. Because they would have shot it onto a high definition camera like aSony HDW-F900 CineAlta if your intrested and they would not have to convert it to give a film apperance like they have done.

20-03-2005, 13:24
is each episode just going to be one off?, thats a shame because i was used to the serial way that they were brought out.

Brimstone, how did you manage to see Dr Who so early?

Boogle, Episodes 1,2,3,6,7,8,11,12,13 I belive are all a single story in a 45 minute time slot. They are self contained stories. Episodes 4 and 5 and episodes 9 and 10 are two part stories. Which will obviously run over two weeks.

Boogle the reason Brimstone and myself have been able to see Rose early is becuase (and I can't go into the specifics) it has been released on to the internet three weeks before the first broadcast date.

There is no news on a state side release though I belvie Canada and New Zealand have bought the rights.

Just to let you know if anyone remembers Ultraviolet that was on Channel 4 about six years ago, well the director/creator of that show Joe Ahearne has directed that episode and about half of the series all told.

at the moment...never.

BBC worldwide approached several US tv networks with tapes of episodes with a view to selling them for syndication, and every single network turned them down, even the SCIfi channel.
so, unless any of you yankee doodles have access to BBC worldwide on satellite, you wont be getting to see them any time soon.

anyways, having seen the first episode (lololloll, i r t3h l337), i can say that it looks good, but i have some reservations about making the stories self contained 45 minute episodes, rather than keeping the original "weekly serial" format, but russell t davis is a pretty good sci fi writer, so they shouldnt be too bad.

Charax that is an incorrect episode list not all of those stories will be called that. Yes a single Dalek will appear in episode 6. There were rumours that the last two epiosdes were containing a Dalek army. However these are unconfirmed and still are unconfirmed.

BTW watch Rememberance of the Daleks if you want to see a Dalek go upstairs.

Oh Sojurrner the Cybermen are not in the new season of Doctor Who if it is a succes then maybe the next one but nothing so far.

I'm quite ashamed to say I'm qquite a big Dr. Who fan, but i do think that daleks suck.
I really hope the series doesn't try just to be a tribute to the old series, but tries to a program of it's own right. The writters and producers of the show were saying that they didnt want to include any Daleks but the BBC made them because "everyone will know where they stand"
You know if they mess this up they've got reserved seats under-neath my pattio :mad:

Actually its the other way round the writers and producers wanted the Daleks but could not agree a deal with the Nation Estate and so the series was started without a dalek stroy, however things changed and now there is a Dalek story.

Anyway it would not be Doctor Who if there were not a Dalek story to boost ratings.

Just to let you know the person who leaked the episdoe has had his contract terminated.

even the SCIfi channel.
Sci-Fi doesn't need it at the moment. With the final Season of SG-1 starting in July, Season 2 of both Stargate Atlantis and Battlestar Galactica (Also really impressed by this update) they've got the three most popular Sci-Fi shows on TV.

WHen SG-1 ends, they'll need something to fill that spot, so we'll see if they don't pick it up then. Sci-Fi tries to avoid showing stuff in seasons unless they're making it (as is the case of all the above) so they usually wait until they can show plenty in one running. (They're showing all of The X-Files at 4pm on Weekdays, in order for instance right now, but waited till it was done to do so)

We'll see next year I suppose.


so, unless any of you yankee doodles have access to BBC worldwide on satellite, you wont be getting to see them any time soon.

The correct term over here is BBC America (spot the contracdictory irony!) and yes, I do. :D Yay!

You know I always thought Dr. Who was a bit hoaky and Eccleston was one of the reasons I actually wanted to give it a try (I loved him in 28 Days Later). It's not surprising though since he is probably too well known or "big" for it (no offense to Dr. Who).

ah well...

So who do we all think should be the next Doctor? I'm torn between Richard E.Grant[Withnail and I] and David Thewlis[Professor Lupin in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban] . Definitely against David Tennet, Doctor Who should not be so pretty that he looks like a girl!

Don't know, I think Anthony Head might be a good doctor, but it might be considered too close to Rupert Giles in Buffy.

Odin
01-04-2005, 12:10
Bill Nighy would get my vote, although Anthony Stewart Head would be good too. The Casanova bloke is at least 10 years too young.

Richard E Grant did a radio version of Dr Who. I didn't hear it, but I suspect he'd be pretty well suited to the role as well.

Well it does look like that David Tennant is going to be the new Doctor, however I have the faith in Russel T Davis and Julie Garland to pick correctly, they did with Chris Ecclestone, it was just that he felt he had to leave now or be typedcast. Which is fine.

But surely if you take on an iconic cult role such as the Doctor you expect to get typecast . Fair enough you might want to disassociate yourself from an unexpected sucess the you personally hate[like Sir Alec McGuiness and the role of ObiWan] . But to give up on a signature role like that after a single series, strikes me as a severe lack of comitment .

Anyone but me less than impressed by the End of the World? It was crap.

I'm quite glad Chris Ecclestone is leaving now. After seeing him in the second episode, he's not right for the roll. I hope the other episodes will be better, or this is going to be the let down I thought it was going to be in the first place...

Baggers
02-04-2005, 20:30
I think what let the End of the World down is the writing more than anything, it felt a little to much on showing the monsters than the actual story, which felt rather rushed. However Mark Gatisis (SP?) story next week with the gelf should be good.

Looking forwards to the Paul Cornell scrited episode as well. I used to enjoy his colums in SFX.

Frankly, I dunno, the 2 eps so far have just lacked something. They just had no real substance or something. Billie Piper is quite good as the assistant but Eccelston and the rest of the cast just don't have the oomph to carry the thing off. Some of the acting has been really dire as well. "Doctor, I'm made of wood", you and everyone else round here love.

The Master was appaerently sucked into the Eye of Harmony in the TV movie, however I can not remember off hand if he has featured in any of the BBC Books based on Paul Mcgann's Eight Doctor.

They originally only got 11 - 12 different incarnations.
However, the Valeyard in the last Colin Baker story "Trial Of A Time Lord" was revealed to be the 13th incarnation of the doctor.
However, the Master got around this by body-stealing, and I'm sure there'll be some Deus Ex Machina answer when the actor playing Doctor 12 decides to move on.


And is The Master really gone?
Only one thing can kill the Master - bad ratings :p

Although Anthony Ainley (the Master from Tom Baker through to Sylvester McCoy) passed away at the back end of last year (I believe pretty much the last thing he did was record a commentary for the Keeper Of Traken DVD). He himself replaced Roger Delgado, who died in the early 70s, having established the role against Jon Pertwee.

I get the impression that Gallifrey was erased from existence rather than merely being destroyed.

I have my own little theory about Time Lords, though. I consider the TARDIS to be an 'existence support device' for a Gallifreyan who uses one. To prevent themselves from being erased from the timeline, a Time Lord is actually in a kind of stasis in a higher dimension - as humans exist in four and can theoretically be put into stasis in the fourth, so Time Lords naturally exist in five and are restricted to four. This gives a nice little tragic element - the kind of existence that a Time Lord is forced to accept is about the same as expecting a human to be happy with being put in stasis forever.

Yeah he did record a commetory for the Keeper of Traken, but dont expect to see it released on DVD this year.

The Valeyard admits his identity as a distillation of the dark side of the Doctor's nature, somewhere between his twelfth and thirteenth incarnations, out to take control over his remaining lives. Taken from the Beeb's website.

Oh and did you know before Rodger Delgardo dies, he was going to be in one alst Doctor Who when it was to have been revealed that he was the Doctor's brother.

The Master was just about the best villain that the Doctor was pitted against.

That "shrinking gun" thing he had was truly (to my young mind) a scary contraption.

As to the new look control room..i am not sure i like it, very Farscape indeed. Although as i remember from much older stories the Tardis is truly immense in size, and had at least two (now we presume three) control rooms.

But frankly the Tardid just isn't right without the doodad that goes up and down in the centre of the console. :)

Re: Gallifrey being destroyed

oh dear, plot hole alert!1!!!1!

you see, if gallifrey was destroyed, then the tardis would no longer work, as the eye of harmony would collapse in on itself.

you see, the eye of harmony is actually a black hole in the gallifrey star system, which was stabilised and harnessed by a time lord called Rassilon. the equipment used for stabilising the black hole is located on gallifrey, therefore if gallifrey was destroyed, the eye of harmony would de stabilise and destroy the entire star system.
All the Tardis's use the eye of harmony as a source of power, connecting themselves to it via an interdimensional bridge, in much the same way as the outside of a tardis is connected to the inside by one.
The interior of the tardis is described as being "dimensionally transendental <sp?>", meaning that it exists in a different place to the point of observation, in reality, the tardis doesnt actually go anywhere, but the police box entrance can move to any point or time in any known plane of existance, as it is simply a doorway to the inside, which exists outside of time.

I know, it's City Of Death for November though - with allegations of Tom Baker doing some extras for it :cool:

Although I wish they'd release the Key To Time season for region 2. How come the americans get it before we do?

Didn't know that, bit too soap opera-ish for my liking, but there you go.

Yes City of Death is going to be released in November, though you should not know about that, as the Beeb announced it far to early, yes i know what the other two release for the year are. But No I am not saying.

Oh and the Americans did the Key to Time boxset not the Reteration Team and is apprently quite rubbish. Its best to wait till the Resteration team deal with the stories.

I was really looking forward to the new Dr Who....... that was until I saw it. None of them can act particularly well, (the dr was alright...) But the dr was well, WRONG, he just didn't come across as how he should and he was young and unmysterious and annoying. Infact even the fun tackiness of days gone was ruined with the attempt of high-tech tack. just WRONG.... and rubbish taboot.

I think they should let me have a go.
I reckon i would be ace as the doctor.

EDIT:
Hows about we all send the BBc e mails asking for me to be the doctor? see if we can get a result.

Dear BBC,
I am a little upset to hear of christpher ecclestones departure after just one series, but this is perhaps a blessing in disguise. the perfect candidate to be the doctor has been found, his name is Marcel Kinrade. he has appeared in many home movies, and is possibly THE Doctor incarnate.

Well, a dead rat would probably give a better show than that pathetic casanova ladyboy.

BTW the current Tardis is a different model to that owned/used by the Doctor in the original tv show.


Interesting.

Speaking as someone completely ignorant of the written adventures of the good Dr, when/how did this happen?

In the Doctor Who novels.
