Re: Doctor Who

Matt was my fave, but Peter has been great.
I would be happy with any of the suggested replacements.

Re: Doctor Who

Has anyone watched the new one?  I was a bit nervous about it because I loved the last series/season so much.  But I thought it was great!   I instantly liked the new companion, Bill.  I'm a Matt Lucas fan so it was great to see him back.   Some of the dialogue was really funny, the "monster" was great, and the episode managed to be genuinely scary and moving too.   It also looked really good, interesting camera angles, good special effects (not like the old days!) and so on. 

I'm still sad that Peter is leaving, but going to enjoy his last hurrah!  He is going to be such a hard act to follow!   It will be strange watching the next series with no Peter, no Steven, and rumours that Pearl will be leaving as well.

Re: Doctor Who

Me!
I really liked it.
Yes, loved the companions. I agree on Matt.

I will miss, Peter, too, but understand his decision...I will obviously miss Steven more!
I didn't know Pearl was supposed to be leaving, too.
What do you make of the new doctor rumours?

Re: Doctor Who

About Kris Marshall, you mean?  I don't know.  I'm sure he'd be fine, but not what I imagined they'd go for this time, so I'm not sure that it's true.   Or maybe it's just wishful thinking, because I was terribly excited about Peter, and not at all excited about Kris! It seems that the Doctor will be regenerating this series (not at Christmas), so presumably we should see whoever it is soon?  I was wondering if they'd go for a younger, eye candy doctor again for the teen audience, but then Peter has been so good ...

Re: Doctor Who

My thoughts entirely.
I really like Kris and I guess he would be a midway choice...neither dead young nor dead old.
Yes, I was excited by Peter, too.
You remind me of another interesting point at Steven's talk and of course I am now going to make a complete arse of it, because I wasn't really paying attention- as on the world scale of events, it wasn't important to me!
They showed a clip, I think and sharp witted Frank picked up on the fact it indicated that the regeneration would be this series then and not at Xmas...is that what you meant?!

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, apparently it has already been filmed, but the Christmas special hasn't been filmed yet. And yes, it looks as if he's regenerating in the trailer.  It could all be red herrings, though!   I think it would be possible for him to regenerate and still be in the Christmas special - we could just see an early part of his timeline.   Or I suppose it's even possible that Peter isn't in the Christmas one, and it's the new doctor, whomever they be?  There's still time to announce it before filming starts.  I'm kind of hoping not, because I would like to see the Steven/Peter combination for Christmas again this year, with Matt Lucas too, of course!

Re: Doctor Who

Needless to say Steven refused to categorically answer Frank's point!

Re: Doctor Who

Of course!  But I do wonder if the fact that Peter has admitted to filming it, and that it's shown in the trailer is meant to confuse us and it's not actually going to happen after all!

Some bits that I liked:

"Doctor What?"
Incidentally gay main character (after Moftiss talking about representation in Doctor Who at SDCC - they obviously knew they had this lined up). 
The photos of Susan and River.
The Doctor going back in time to take photos of Bill's mum
Joy Division "Love will tear us apart" playing in the club when Bill and Heather connect
The Doctor's pride in the Tardis
The whole conversation about the Tardis with the Doctor waiting for Bill to say it's bigger on the inside, and she keeps comparing it to a posh kitchen or a lift!
"Nobody's from space"
"No, not specifically this one" (asked if he's from this planet).
Bill pointing out that the TARDIS acronym only works in English
The scary bits were really good, and sad at the same time ("You're dead") 
All of Nardole's facial expressions.

Looking forward to next week!

Re: Doctor Who

Yes, I really think you can spot Seven's writing in the bits where he tackles cliches and grammar etc!
I had completely missed Pearl's character was called Bill!
 
I am looking forward to not being disturbed next week: this week I was settling down to enjoy, in fact I had just expressed my admiration for the opening set- when the phone rang!
I ran to answer it in case it was my son, when in fact it was Amazon, for my husband as there was a problem with his account.  He then sat with his lap top on and spent about 15 mins on the phone, before he got it all sorted.
He kept looking at the TV(cos we normally mute by default, when one of us is on a call!), but I don't think he dared ask me to tun it down!
