Re: Doctor Who

I'll admit that I haven't seen S10 yet (and I'm not really keen on watching it...), so I only watched the last five minutes of the Christmas Special because I'm really looking forward to Chris Chibnall's DW with Jodie. And I love her first couple of seconds. The look on her face when she says "Oh, brilliant!" - I'm definitely detecting some Tenth Doctor-vibes there. Can't wait to see more of her. As far as I'm concerned, things can only get better.

Re: Doctor Who

I eventually managed to catch up on the Christmas special today.
I absolutely loved it.
A master class from Steven.
I am so going to miss him.  Once again I am cross about how people do him down and do not appreciate his talent.  We are lucky to have him.
Mark was great in this episode too and nice to see Rachel, completing the Sherlockian family presence.
I thought Peter was really good, but Jodie made a good impact, too.

Re: Doctor Who

I know somebody else here is an Alan Cumming fan, but I can't remember who!  I've been meaning to post this - terribly exciting if we get to see him in Doctor Who!  Apparently he was previously asked to play the Doctor (wouldn't he have been fantastic?), but didn't want to spend 8 months of the year in Cardiff!
http://www.radiotimes.com/news/2017-06-07/alan-cumming-was-asked-to-play-the-doctor-but-there-was-one-crucial-requirement-that-put-him-off/

 Anyway, it looks like he will be in Doctor Who as King James I.

I'm not sure if they mean James VI and I, or James I of Scotland.  I suspect the former, as he's more famous.  Really looking forward to it!

Re: Doctor Who

Funny that this should come up now. For the past few days I've been watching videos of Alan Cumming in Cabaret.

Re: Doctor Who

Unfortunately he's probably not going to do the show again (he's played the Emcee three times over the years, the last one in 2014), so we're unlikely to have the chance to see him live, but there's plenty of videos on YouTube. One production was filmed for TV years ago.

Re: Doctor Who

If anyone is interested, twitch.tv is screening old Doctor Who episodes on https://www.twitch.tv/twitchpresents.  And I do mean old.  We're on Patrick Troughton at the moment.  (Bit of trivia - the character of Jamie in the episode currently streaming was apparently Diana Gabaldon's inspiration for Jamie in Outlander!)

BBC iplayer has all the reboot episodes too.

Re: Doctor Who

Somebody leaked 50 seconds of Jodie's first episode. Not spoilery at all but I couldn't help thinking of Jim in TAB when she went

"It's on the tip of my" - and pointed at her tongue

Re: Doctor Who

New trailer out now - looks really good!  Nice to see them reusing the old quarries again

Re: Doctor Who

Counting down to the new series now.  The first episode is on Sunday 7th October.  Yes, a Sunday!  I'm not sure I'm ready for that change after it being early Saturday evening since my childhood!  However, it was frustrating that the time kept being changed.  Maybe it will be more stable on a Sunday.

Re: Doctor Who

I of course will be away, in London...
it's a hard life, somebody has to live it!

Re: Doctor Who

Have a wonderful time in London, BB!

I forgot to mention, there is a premiere in Sheffield, on the 24th.  You can apply for tickets for the red carpet event, with priority for locals:

Re: Doctor Who

If I could have fit that in with a return trip from London...would have been great.
You gonna travel over?
That's where my old VI form pal's from btw, Sheffield...wonder if she's Whovian?

Re: Doctor Who

I would love to, but I'll be at work, sadly!  And the free tickets are just for the red carpet, not for the premiere itself, and no guarantee even if you have a ticket (as they overbook them in case of people not turning up).  If I lived in Sheffield and had the day off, I'd go to the showing if I could (not sure how you get tickets for that).  But I was little bit disappointed with another of these special showings that I went to (the show itself was great, but the sound was terrible and it was freezing).

Re: Doctor Who

Did anyone watch it?  It did feel very different, but I think Jodie is going to be a lot of fun! (Although I suppose this is her regeneration episode - I'm not sure how she'll change).

Re: Doctor Who

I recorded it on my PVR so I only got a chance to watch it this morning.
I liked some aspects of the episode but I don't think it was the best plot. I have preferred other aliens/creatures. But that's always the way it is for me, some episodes I like and some I don't.
But as for the new Doctor,I liked her pretty much right away and I agree that I think she'll be fun. I also really like her outfit at the end of the episode. I liked the supporting characters of the episode too and I wonder how long they will be sticking around. They seem like they might be the new companions, but I don't know if all of them will be there for the entire series.
I didn't get the ending of the episode since if they're out in space they shouldn't be able to survive, so we'll see how that is resolved. I like that they used what sounded like the original theme music (or part of it) during the closing credits.
I am looking forward to Phyllis Logan and Alan Cumming's episodes.

Re: Doctor Who

Oh, me too! 

I think I was expecting Chris Chibnall's writing to be a bit more adult, but I didn't get that.   I thought it was quite dark and scary at times, but I've talked to other people who didn't find it that way.   I'm not as keen on the companions as I was about Bill in her first episode, but I think they'll grow on me.

Re: Doctor Who

I didn't really expect anything in particular from the writing since I am not familiar with that person's previous work, but that's interesting that you mention that. We'll have to wait and see what the next episodes are like.

Re: Doctor Who

Sorry guys, just back from my London hol and catching up...
Managed to see the opening episode, as my hosts abandoned me for the weekend!
I really enjoyed it.
In fact a girl I travelled up to Dundee with yesterday...she was sitting in front of me,  watching it on her netbook and I saw it again- by watching the reflection in the train wondow!
I really enjoyed it, thought it was very good.
Like Jodie.
The only people I miss so far are Mark and Steven!
Round two tonight.
