Title: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on November 16, 2008, 06:43:29 am
I cant believe there isnt a thread for Doctor Who and Torchwood and in the original tv thread this was the reason why we have this section :P

But I came across this goodie today - although it was originally shown during Children In Need fundraising special.
Its the first 2 mins of the XMas special and it looks like the Doctor has either come across an impostor or his future self!!!

I'm a nerd I suppose, I love Torchwood.  Brit tv is filmed differently then American stuff, so I think it's why it's not as popular here.  Not that I care. ;)

Well its confirmed - Matt Smith is the new Doctor. Hes the youngest ever cast in the role. I know some fans arent pleased but he looks interesting and although I will miss David Tennant I have a good feeling about this choice. More info on him here

LOL
I think the net is jumping right now with the news!!!
On another site some members were moaning but I have seen the actor in several roles and I do like him and with Steven Moffat behind the reigns I think season 5 will be fantastic.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: cherie on January 03, 2009, 10:26:57 am
I've not actually watched the other things that he's been in, so he's pretty much an unknown to me. To be honest, I prefer it that way. If they had cast a more established actor in the role, I think it would be more difficult to believe in him as The Doctor.

We've still got 4 specials with David Tennant, and won't get the next series until 2010, so there's plenty of time to get used to the idea.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on January 03, 2009, 10:31:57 am
I totally agree- Although Christopher Eccleston was great in reintroducing the doctor. Many forget that David Tennant was also semi unknown as well- And those same people were moaning about Catherine Tate as a companion and I think she was one of the best yet :D

There is also the Torchwood special mini later in the year as well - That will help with the wait ;D

Hey Torchwood fans guess what I came across today :D
Torchwood's season 3  for the US and its great news!!!

Quote
I don't think the following Torchwood information has been reported elsewhere, but BBC America president Garth Ancier is here in Los Angeles for the Television Critics Association January tour and after he presented panels for BBC America's latest offerings, I had the chance to ask him if he had an air date for Torchwood: Children of Earth on BBCA. He didn't yet have a firm air date as BBC America is waiting for the BBC to finalize their date, but he was fairly certain that it was going to be the first part of this summer, possibly late June or early July.

He also said that not only would BBC America air the five episodes on consecutive nights as they are doing across the pond, but that they would also air in th U.S. the same day as they did in the U.K. meaning American audiences will have almost no lag time in seeing the series. (The U.K. is five hours ahead of the east coast of the U.S meaning the delay should be about that give or take). Ancier said the series might also air in High Definition, a first for BBCA.

Summer can't get here soon enough!

I actually heard that it was going to be Spring for Torchwood's airdate in the UK  but it looks like they have pushed that forward. But its good to see that they will be airing it the same time as the UK ;D

Well, well.
Having seen a few ep's of Torchwood I begin to wonder why I watch that show.
It holds all the charme and fascination of a train wreck for me, most of the time I don't like the characters and the whole show is way to much obsessed with sex.

I do like the concept, but the execution irks me.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 13, 2009, 02:10:32 pm
The first season of Torchwood was hit and miss and there was definitely too much emphasis on sex because I think the producers wanted to let the audience know that this show was for adults and the story telling and characterisation was affected because of this. But in the second season it def improved - the latter half of the season is pretty heartbreaking and its interesting to note that in many ways Torchwood has toned down alot of the sex and swearing so it can reach a wider audience.
Stick with it! I cant wait for the mini series thats out this summer looks great :D

I came across this link today which made my day if its true- but it looks like that RTD hasnt given up the reigns from Doctor Who just yet. Some sharp eyed fans have noticed that he's working on a movie  but the that entry was removed on his page so there might be credence to the story!

Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Ellyll on May 26, 2009, 09:17:27 am
I'm confused.  Torchwood hasn't had four seasons yet (unless I missed something?) and Doctor Who has had a whole lot more than four seasons.  Which one do you mean?
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 26, 2009, 10:09:16 am
I think he meant Doctor Who- The last full series was series 4 and I agree that finale was fantastic.
I came across this today- More David Tennant!!! :D


Quote
David Tennant is to appear as the Time Lord in Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures, the BBC has announced.
Tennant, 38, will appear over two episodes of a new 12-part series of the CBBC show, which starts in September.
Russell T Davies, executive producer of The Sarah Jane Adventures and Doctor Who, said it would be a "full on appearance" and "not just a cameo".
The show follows the adventures of the investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith - a former Doctor's companion.
Smith is played by actress Elisabeth Sladen, 61, who also played the character in Doctor Who opposite Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker between 1973 and 1976.
'Special treat'
Sladen said she was "absolutely over the moon" to be co-starring alongside Tennant.
"It's fantastic news that Sarah Jane is going to spend some time working with the Doctor again and is testament to just how successful this CBBC series is."
Davies said: "Viewers thought they may have to wait until November for the next full episode of Doctor Who, but this is an extra special treat.
"And it's not just a cameo from David.
"This is a full-on appearance for the Doctor as he and Sarah Jane face their biggest threat ever."
The third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will feature monsters who want to infect earth and a "living painting".
Tennant is being replaced as Doctor Who by actor Matt Smith, 26, who will appear as the 11th Doctor next year.
Tennant will firstly appear in three specials, starting with The Waters of Mars in November.
Meanwhile, Doctor Who may be heading for the big screen after a spokeswoman for BBC Films confirmed that "a script is in development".
BBC entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba said there were no guarantees a film would be made and that, if the project went into full production, a release would be a long time away.

Source

Doctor Who Movie in Development

As discussed at the end of the last article. Lizo Mzimba tweeted about the prospective movie

'BBC Films have confirmed a Dr Who film script is in development. But IF it does go into full production that's likely to be some time away.'

'So, to be clear, it's not guaranteed a Dr Who movie will be made. All BBC Films are doing is developing a script, before making a decision.'

'Development - things like commissioning a script, exploring casting, seeing if financially it's possible to go ahead.'

This follows Russell T. Davis' agent listing a movie in his credits online, it was promptly removed.

There is also a rumour that David Tennant is going to star in the movie if it does go through and gets greenlighted and i saw the entry for on RTD's CV sheet before it was removed - I think there is a good chance of this happening.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Ellyll on May 26, 2009, 10:27:30 am
That's very cool news, Has. 

I guess I'm just showing my age.  :P  Doctor Who has been around since the early sixties (with at least one movie that I know of, already), and so I consider it as having had a great many more than four seasons/series.  Plus, I still have a sneaking fondness for the Tom Baker Doctor.  ;)
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 26, 2009, 10:31:02 am
Hey I still remember some of the older doctors ;)
Although the one I have a very clear memory is Sylvester McCoy's doctor and his assistant Ace. I was really disappointed when they axed the show and was ecstatic when they brought it back!

The movie was okay - the problem was it didnt really feel like Doctor Who.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood

No it didn't, did it?  I have better expectations for this one, if it happens.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 26, 2009, 10:40:34 am
I think there might be a good chance of this happening- you have reboots successfully kickstarting static franchises. And although Doctor Who is a cult show I can see it having a wide appeal plus its embedded in popular culture so thats another factor. At least the people behind this show is linked with producing the series unlike what they are planning to do with Buffy :P - No Joss or original cast but they are remaking the movie.

I think before David Tennant it was Peter Davidson although that was first Doctor I could remember. And it was one of my earliest memories watching him on telly on a Saturday afternoon :D

By the way it looks like the movie is being pushed ahead- The BBC has confirmed reports that they are commissioning a script for big screen version although details about who is writing and what doctor starring is still murky.

I grew up a Who girl :D Love the new Who but I'm real ready to be done with RTD. If I never see another Dalek or Cyberman it will be too soon.  Moffat has always done my favorite eps. I wished we'd had another year with Ten and Moffat but it's not to be.

On Torchwood. Even if you don't usually do spoilers, in this case I think it would be bad to go in Virgin. I got inadvertently spoiled for Day 4 and spoiled myself on purpose for Day 5. I didn't take it well, but it would have been much worse if I'd not been forewarned. 
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: octopippo on July 16, 2009, 08:48:13 pm
oyu know one of my favorite episodes is the one with agatha christie. for some reason i could always watch that one over and over. also its one of the few episodes with a costume change for the companion.


theres isn't really any merchandising here in the staes cuz its a UK show apart from a few action figures but does anyone know if theres like a plsuhie or a vynil figure or something of those little babies made out of fat. they were super awesome

We haz spoiler tags!!! [ spoiler]Your spoiler goes here.[ /spoiler] - Just close the gaps in the in the brackets!

But for Torchwood-
Killing off Ianto and Jack's grandson- I went Noooooo. I can understand why they did it but I felt especially that making Jack do that just went against his whole belief system and I just dont think he would have done that

Its also rumoured that Moffat will have Daleks in the 5th season I saw a mention of this in a Dr Who board but not sure if this was genuine or nor but I hear that next week they will start shooting the season so spoilers will leak :D.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Vinity on July 17, 2009, 08:03:51 am
NOOOOOOO!!!!

 :( No more Daleks!! It doesn't seem Moffat's style but I guess SOME {I don't know any} expect Doctor Who to have at least one Dalek story a series. I look forward to Moffat because I think nearly everyone of my favorite story lines has been written by him. He does such an elegant job with his big bads and he doesn't rely so heavily on low cost {all the BBC can afford} CGI. Who is always best in my opinion when it allows the viewer to participate in making the bad guy scary. A statue in the garden, shadows not behaving properly, a kid in a gas mask, are you my mummy? all these things are so ordinary and he's made them scary as hell!! Brilliant!

agreed. completely out of character. i also always wondered where the doctor was everytime something ridiculous was happening to earth. also they could've brought him in in an instant with one call from martha jones even if she was on her honeymoon she would've heard about everything. the last time she called the doctor was about gps on cars, now with children i dont think she would've hesitated to make the call.

My son & I enjoyed it. Good theme for someone his age.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Vinity on July 17, 2009, 01:28:22 pm
Yeah, I think Blink is my all time favorite Doctor Who ep and it's a frelling Doctor lite ep. I would SO have loved for Sally Sparrow to be a companion. I guess they thought cute/young/blond would compete with Rose. I've loved all the Moffat eps, plus, Shakespeare code, Family of Blood and of course, the final eps of series 1 with Captain Jack.

I'm a little worried the new Who {11} is looking pretty young and pretty emo. I don't want to see the Doctor turned into a romantic lead. While I love Ten and I actually loved Rose {and her family} and I thought as a concept they worked, I wasn't so thrilled with the actually product. So much of the time they seemed too into each other rather than the events.  I don't want the new Doctor and his companion to be too into each other.

Casting spoiler that is cool as hell Gillian Anderson/Scully! will be playing Rani from the classic series this year :D
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Jazzlet on July 19, 2009, 10:06:10 am
On the contrary re Torchwood it would have been out of character for Jack to do anything else, one of the constant themes has been how he deals with caring for people when he knows he's going to see them die and one of his methods is to sacrifice them ... but him going off at the end, WHAT?

General comments but I'll spoiler font just in case At some angles 11 reminds me of Sean Maher/Simon from Firefly. I wish they cut emo hair. Only so much emo hair I can take and Sam from Supernatural uses up my entire year's quota. LOL I like the costume better at a distance. New companion is beautiful. Worried they are too pretty a couple.  RIVER SONG!!! She looks gorgeous!! What did they do to the TARDIS?? I'm so excited for a new season but so sad to see Ten go  :-'    bOuNcY Moffat!! Not sad to see RTD go.

Article says there are 2 more Ten specials......I thought there were three. Did the Brits slip one in without me knowing? I have Next Doctor and Planet of the Dead. I was pretty sure there was supposed to be a Nov Special and a two-part Christmas/New Years?

Billie is back for the goodbye??? I wonder if Not/Ten will be back with her. I personally hated that take on the Rose/Ten issue. I wonder if Captain Jack will return. I guess they could have it before Children of Earth time wise.

I agree and in some ways I could imagine this happening if it was real - it really hit close to home. Very good drama and acting and it was definitely a huge improvement from season 1 and even season 2. Shows Sci Fi can be good as the typical drama shows.

Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Vinity on July 26, 2009, 10:01:23 am
I do still want to strangle RTD for some of his comments about Fan's reactions. He's been very vocal about dissing fans. He really needs to cut that out. Dissing the people who support your job is never a good idea. This is the age where so many creative people are embracing fans. Things like twitter, facebook and the net in general have given these people access to fans in a safe way. I think RTD might have a hard time in the LA environment. I guess if he crashes he can always go back and be big fish in little pond at the BBC.

Sad about the Doctor Who rumor being not true. Still, maybe if Moffat can grow the audience even more, which I think will be true. His writing is much more elegant than RTD. I'm not sure his appeal to kids will be the same but it's looking like the more adult DW Torchwood got bigger ratings so I think that is where the focus of the show can/should go
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on July 26, 2009, 10:45:34 am
I totally agree with you there about RTD's  reaction towards the fan he could have been more apologetic and just said it was how he envisioned it but feels for the fan. Being dismissive like that is not the way to go and I agree in LA its a big difference.

I still think there is a movie in the works- I just think they have a things under wraps plus Julie Gardner was reported saying at Comic Con that a movie is a good idea.

Plus the little snide comment about Supernatural was REALLY uncalled for. If you didn't see it {paraphrasing} He said if they wanted to see pretty boys {play??} just watch Supernatural and don't tell him those boys are supposed to be brothers.

He said in a British paper he will be behind it but Im not sure you know. In way its like he committed a torched earth policy on Torchwood. (no pun intended :P )

But I agree that was pretty snide of him to do that - in either case if he isnt involved- perhaps Steven Moffat will take over and he was the one who created the character of Capn Jack in the first place ;)

Yeah, I'd LOVE for Moffat to take on Torchwood also. Like you said, he wrote Captain Jack to start with and really everyone I knew thought much of Torchwood didn't live up to the introduction of the character of Jack on DW. I have to agree. The Doctor Dances always makes my husband tear up and he's not a huge DW fan. I was sorta mad no one picked up on several of the threads Moffat had built into the character. Like the Time Agency wiping his mind of 3 years of memory.

Totally agreed! I'm still grieving over Ianto. I wonder if they are planning to get everyone to forget the pain by bringing Marster's back.

I thought it was utterly brilliant filmmaking.  The fact that I found it so harrowing, was a testament to that; I don't usually get that worked up about these things, and I felt nearly sick to my stomach, I was so upset at some parts.  Which means it was a very, very good show.

I didn't like TW that much. After finishing the last DW season we started watching it, because we needed it to continue, but we stopped. It was less brilliant, I think. I didn't like Captain Jack, though I found him very entertaining in DW.

Bone chilling. It makes them look so evil but what could they really do with the time limit? There was a call for random selection at the meeting but there was simply not time enough to do it. What they might have don was taken one set from a poor district, another from a wealthy one and the third from a middle class one. How much time would that have taken? Think of the pressure they were under. Comply or the death of your species. Why oh why could Torchwood not contact the Doctor?

I had planned on buying the Season 1 & 2 DVDs of Torchwood, but then I watched a short "here's what happens" and now - nope. I refuse to get invested in characters where I know they're going to die. I had a hard enough time with Ianto in The Children of Earth and I only saw him for those episodes.. I'll just have to see what comes next instead of looking back.

There are some issues with Children of Earth. I think if you are prepared for the bad things it's easier to swallow. It's worth watching. There are some brilliant moments.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Ellyll on August 05, 2009, 06:19:11 pm
I don't know that you should be prepared for the bad things.  Shocking though it was to me, I'd rather experience it the way I do a book: following where the story leads, and feeling it as I go.  If I know ahead of time what's going to happen, my experience is muted.  Which takes something out of it, at least for me. 

So, yay for spoiler tags, I guess.  ;D
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: bengrenell on August 06, 2009, 07:00:56 am
Don't let that be a reason to miss this excellent series. British television has always been a bit braver when it comes to character deaths. I mean if you have a bunch of people running about saving the world and/or the universe on a regular basis it makes sense that there will be casualties. We Americans don't like to face death. Well Idon't like to face death, especially when seeking escape from reality in genre television but I respect the creators decision to take the story where he or she needs to take it. I believe that when we next see Captain Jack he will either have had a portion of his memory wiped or there will be such a dire crisis on Earth that he will find himself compelled to return. Odds are we'll be seeing Captain Jack again and while he's no Ianto, he is bound to stir up the pot in ways that make many a fangirl or fanboy jump for joy.

Oh, that's not what I meant.  I've been a Torchwood fan since its inception (at least, since its inception here in the States).  I watched Children of Earth, and I found it completely harrowing on many levels and Ianto's death wasn't the most harrowing: after they'd killed off Owen and Tosh, I figured everyone was fair game and utterly brilliant.  But I didn't know ahead of time what was happening, and I wouldn't have wanted to, either.  :)

Oh Torchwood is definitely back- RTD has reported that he hopes to film 13 eps next year and John Barrowman also said the same. Theres no official announcement but the ratings and critical response to Children of Earth cemented a new series but due to funding issues and timing it was up in the air.

And you guys are going to love the new series - there is a 2 parter which is rumoured to feature the weeping angels from Blink :D

Post by: Has on January 05, 2010, 01:21:35 pm
Their scenes together was amazing - I am going to miss him too and I do like the look of the trailer for season 5.
Also I have a theory about the mysterious woman
Although the BBC media credited her as the Doctors mother- its not official. I personally think its either the Doctor's Grandaughter which will mirror Wilf and Donna and even Jack and his own grandson because he also sacrificed him in Children of Earth. But did you noticed when the TimeLords arrived that both the mysterious woman and the one on her right appeared in the same position as those from the weeping angels is there a link. Also the other Time Lord who hid their face- i couldnt help notice too that his/her hair was similar to that of Matt Smit maybe we will see  more of that - I think this was left open intentionally.

I was so upset during the End of Time episode. When he said 'I don't want go" and his voice kinda cracked...there were definite tears. And cursing when the new doctor showed up. I know i should give him a chance but it was just so hard to see David go. :( i'm going to miss him.

Still I think Matt Smith will be a great Doctor. Not like David Tennant but in his own way still great.

I remember the President of the timelords saying something about the end of the 'weeping angels' . I don't remember it that well, but I'm sure there was something like that.
First I thought that elderly woman was the future Donna. Then I thought she was the Doctor's mother. But granddaughter would be possible, too.

I think he was still fried from the 'change' and also I think he didn't want another companion especially after Donna/Rose. But in the subsequent eps they have a fantastic relationship especially in the last ep with the Weeping Angels :D

I agree that Matt Smith has the crazy professor type going on but he also feels older although is the youngest Doctor cast yet.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Elle on April 25, 2010, 02:05:21 pm
Christopher Eccleston was my Doctor. I loved him. I couldn't watch the Tennant years but I have started again with Matt Smith. I have to say that I think he's doing a wonderful job. Has, that's how I feel about him as well, he's the youngest but he feels like he has a really old soul. He's like a mix of Tom Baker's Fourth and Peter Davidson's Fifth. There's quirkiness , irreverence, arrogance, innocence, anger, and impatience. I hope he does it for a few years because I'd love to see how he develops. I'm here for the ride, definitely.

I like Amy as well. I like that she can stand up to him and this whole imaginary friend history of theirs is something that I'm getting a kick out of...they have good chemistry together. I think she's a great companion.

I had exactly the same problem.  I LOVED Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, and I just couldn't bring myself to watch David Tennant.  I had the same problem with Tom Baker (yeah, I KNOW I'm dating myself in the worst way).  But if Matt Smith is like a cross between Doctors 4 and 5, I may have to watch him.

But Matt Smith is great- he really kicked the ball out of the park in the first ep and I was not to keen on the Dalek WW2 ep which was slightly meh but the Weeping Angels ep - OMG Blink was scary but this is even scarier. The statues look scarier  ;D

Also they were evolved as well- it looked like they infected humans/statues into them too. Remembe Amy's hand turned to stone in her mind and dust fell out of eye when she rubbed it. I think she was infected when she stared into the Angel's eyes.

Post by: Pfefferminztee on May 05, 2010, 02:32:23 am
Yep, that comment got me thinking, too.

It seems to me as if the new Doctor doesn't master the situations as well as the old. When Amie was going to die, River made the teleporter functioning again, the Doctor just kind of lost control there. What is going on? He doesn't seem quite right to me. (in a psychological way, Smith is still doing a great job)
And what is it with that Doctor/companion development? Amie surely isn't a shy one..  ;D

But it did Peter Davidson; they had to carry him around in a stasis cabinet made of panels from the Tardis.

Also, this is his last regeneration, think of it as being like healing a bone, easy as a youngster, not so much as you hit 60 or so.  And he's seldom done it with the ease of others.  Anybody remember the female Timelord who traveled with him for a while?  She got to try out different bodies before settling on her regeneration!
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Pendle on May 07, 2010, 10:36:57 am
Don't think it's got to do with his regeneration. He does panic when his companion's are in danger, he can't handle the responsibility. At the end of the day it's his fault because he got Amy stuck in that situation.

The Weeping Angels were crreeeepy. I somehow missed the first time they came 'round in an earlier episode, so I was a little lost at first. I couldn't figure out where they came from or what they wanted. Still not sure, really. Just that they're creepy and kill you when you're not looking.

Post by: Pfefferminztee on May 17, 2010, 02:11:57 am
The latest episode had me thinking a lot.
Somehow the whole season seems to me a little random and much more focused on relationships than on what is actually happening. I am not satisfied with it, which is not due to bad acting skills at all, but to the storyline. They seem to try very hard to make the new season look deep and philosophical and stuff, but it is far away from being as good as the fourth season was. It is not that it is bad, it is just not that well-matched. They don't have found their way of making it great yet. - I don't know if I make any sense. It's not that easy to describe. ^^'

Okay. Doctor geek revealed.
The new series has been true to the old. I am not revealing anything not stated.
Timelords have only 12 incarnations. We are on #12.
The 12th Doctor had been revealed as The Valeyard. He is evil-mad. Remember when the Doctor talked about "changing his name" when he was about to lobotomize the Star Whale? Not idle mumblings. The current crew is very good about "idle mumblings" foreshadowing events.
The Doctor has been married. We know this because Doctor #1 traveled with his granddaughter.
You are all correct. This Doctor is losing it. He is dropping his commitments. Sure, Amy wandering trough a herd of Weeping Angels was dramatic, but the Doctor leaving a companion behind because she slows him down? That's' expediency. IMO the Doctor was always a "There has to be a better way and pull it off" kinda guy.
The Doctor is becoming a villain, just like Captain Jack.

The villain theory seems possible to me. I mean Rory dead! The f***! And the Doctor forgetting about the boy in that episode. And in the Van Gogh one: That alien was killed and he just accepted it. And he didn't even try that hard to sort the situation out. Van Gogh did, in fact, most of the work. What is going on?

I agree that the Doctor is turning into a villian- The ep where the Dream Lord was featured with that twist at the end really foretold this. There was even glimpses of this in Waters of Mars when ten tried to change the past. I think he was starting to lose it way before this.

I finally watched the last two episodes: The Pandoric Opens and The Big Bang. LOVED them!

TPO was the more emotional one for me. I was choked up when they were putting the Doctor into the Pandoric. Very upsetting.

Some fantastic Rory/Amy moments. The Lone Centurion was great. Amy unlocking Amy from the Pandoric. The fez!! The destruction of the fez!! Finally, the wedding.


I adored Matt Smith as the Doctor and absolutely loved this season. Some hits and misses but what a wonderful finale.

I have to disagree. After the Van Gogh episode I just don't have the desire to keep watching this series.
I know I will eventually continue to watch it, but it somehow just lacks the right kind of feeling. This Doctor Who feeling, which made the series so special. I don't know if it is because of Matt Smith or the writing, but I find the new season much less enjoyable than the four seasons before.  :-\

I enjoyed it. I liked the elements of "A Christmas Carol" combined together with Kazran's redemption. A Christmas Carol was kind of made for time travel, with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.

And Catherine Jenkins has a beautiful voice. I wasn’t initially sure about her casting, but it couldn’t have been played by anyone else. And the song was beautiful too.

It was just a shame we didn’t see more of Amy and Rory.

Further, as of the Terrant episode with the first Mars Colony, he started breaking that rule with a vengance... although he did somewhat with the episode where he took Rose to see when her Da died too.

You just reminded me of a discrepancy. In the episode where Rose meets her Dad before he died, she wasn’t allowed to touch herself as baby. But in the Christmas episode older Kazran hugged his younger self without causing harm to time, or something equally catastrophic.

I think there is going to be a Time Traveler's Wife going on and I read on another blog that ever since River appeared the Silence has always been with them. Especially in the last season, someone highlighted scenes/pics where they may have appeared - I think this has some merit. Also note the 2 parter which she appeared in had silence in the title. I think Moffat had this in mind for a long time.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Midangel on April 26, 2011, 09:25:27 am
What a heck of an opener to the 6th series.

And what about the revelation about Amy being pregnant? Or did the Silence implant something in her?

Regarding River My understanding is that as she can only time travel in the past, and not the future. So every time she travels in the past, the doctor will become younger, and he knows her less. But we know she dies from Season 5, but she's alive in this series, because this is part of her earlier timeline.

Ugh, oh so confusing. I couldn't carry on with my thoughts in the spoiler because I got so confused trying to figure it out.  LOL
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Elle on April 30, 2011, 07:09:03 pm

Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Pfefferminztee on May 01, 2011, 11:18:30 am
I found River's revelation sooo sad.  :-'
but it made perfectly sense to me. And yeah, I think this plotline has been planned out very well from the beginning.
As to Amy's pregnancy: I guess the girl in the astronaut's suit was her daughter - hence the picture on the dresser. And I think it is hers and Rory's child and that he changed while guarding Amy in the last season for 2000 years. That may be the reason why the girl was so strong, but there probably are a lot of unknowns yet.
Sure is, the girl plays a key role in the events of the Silence...whatever that means.


I loved the beginning of the 6 season. I think Matt Smith has finally got the feeling for playing the Doctor. His performance became much more convincing to me - which can also be due to me being used to seeing him and not David Tennant, of course.

Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Cerulean on May 18, 2011, 01:16:40 pm
I loved the episode The Doctor's Wife. At first I felt a little slighted that it wasn't a wife, but the TARDIS. And then I got to the place that I think Gaiman was aiming, which is that she's his solemate. The Doctor and the TARDIS are inseparable. I also thought it was interesting that the TARDIS/aka "Sexy" (LOL)! dissolved in that glow of light & sparks the same as we saw the little girl start to do (possibly Amy & Rory's daughter). And another note - my dh thinks that the TARDIS's last warning referenced River Song. I can't remember the whole thing, but there was something about a river there. Anyone recall the sentence? And one other thing (or two) - the Doctor needs the TARDIS to travel through time and space, right? So how did other Time Lords travel? and why are they called Time Lords if they can't travel without a ship/TARDIS? Because they can manipulate time through the machine? And what's the story about the Doctor stealing the TARDIS (or vice versa, according to her)? Is that something that came up before that I don't remember?
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Janilee on May 18, 2011, 01:36:16 pm
I haven't watched enough to know. This episode suggested that there were several series of tardis' for time lords to use. For the rest I'm still thinking about it.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Pfefferminztee on May 19, 2011, 02:44:57 am
I think every Timelord has a TARDIS to travel with. Remember in the last Ep there have been the remains of many TARDIS(es, Plural anyone?) that came with their Timelords to this location. And I guess not every Timelord is allowed to have a TARDIS. Maybe the Doctor has been to young or inexperienced and not willing to wait any longer, so he stole one. But that is just speculations on my side.

Ah, the sentence was: ''The River is the only water in a forest'' or something like that... but yeah, good thought Cerulean!
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Patti L. on May 19, 2011, 08:21:54 am
If every timelord had a TARDIS, ours wouldn't have had to steal/borrow his.  I think it's kind of like the Trill symbionts in ST: TNG, there are only so many, and you're supposed to go through training & tests before you're in line to get one.  I seem to recall from earlier Drs that he did the training, but may have skipped out of the tests, or - being the Dr., after all ;) - created controversy that had them dithering, so he just bypassed it by "borrowing" her.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 19, 2011, 10:39:26 am
I think in the classic series - only responsible Timelords were able to travel using Tardis'. The Doctor is a bit of a rebel and goes against the grain and bends the rules. Before the Timelord war with the Darleks he got into trouble a few times with them.

About RiverI think there is definitely a reference to River - and in a way I think this episode hints that River is really the Doctor's wife. I think that we are going to revisit the Silence in the Library two-parter where we first meet River and the Silence is involved. Even the title of the ep refers back to them. I got a theory that somehow the timeline has changed and there will be an alternative one being set up.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Pfefferminztee on May 19, 2011, 10:41:54 am
Not every Timelord has a TARDIS, but for traveling every Timelord needs one, is what I meant. And yep, I suspected the same. He would have gotten one in the end, but he was too impatient or something, so he stole her. (It is the language barrier, some German phrases do not work in English that well... ^^')

Excellent points all - it makes sense about the Doctor and other Time Lords. I wonder what their TARDIS's looked like? I doubt we'll ever know.

As for River, I do think there's been a shift in the timeline. Remember the recent episode where he put her back in her prison and she kissed him - he looked surprised and she said (something to the effect of) "You'd think we'd never done that before" and he said "we haven't" and she looked shocked and sad? Hmmm.

Re: River

That could just be the fact that they are going opposite directions in time. Remember she said when she first knew him he knew everything about her. As they meet she knows more about him and he know less about her. She fears the day when he won't know her at all.

I thought about that, especially since River made such a point of that in the episode - which makes me think there's something else up because she was surprised when he didn't remember kissing her. She should've known that he didn't remember doing that given that she knew which Doctor she was dealing with at the time.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Janilee on May 20, 2011, 02:11:58 pm
I thought that occurred just after they saw the one Doctor killed, and then the other version of him showed up. She kissed the other version. The one with whom she had not just had a time catch up session.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Has on May 20, 2011, 02:13:15 pm
About that - I think that's actually a bit of a misleading thing Remember she kissed Tennant in Silence in the Library and that was the doctor's first kiss with River when she dies but when she first encounter's him. So for the Doctor to say he never did that before it doesn't make sense. Unless this was a big fail with the producers/writers.

I wasn't as surprised that she was their daughter. There was hints right from the beginning about their names - and speculation was hinting/leading to that. Also River while she was shooting at the Silence in the opening 2-parter commented that she hoped that her 'old fella' didn't notice that because he would hate. And Rory is standing behind her. I was surprised by the ganger Melody/River baby shock and the ending from last week's ep too.
This makes me wonder if River can be brought back since she's obviously that little girl from the beginning and was that River who shot the Doctor at the start of the ep? Was it during when she was a young girl? And can she be brought back and regenerate again? I really think she's def the Doctor's wife and there was also a hint at Doctor Who Confidential that the cradle will be used again.

I also loved how Matt Smith was so angry and confrontational with River - and when he gets the truth an the hint about them he was like - OMG she's, she's, OMG I'm all giddy - and awkward and flirty :D LOVE

Arghh! The show didn't tape for me. Can someone lay out the spoilers for me please? I need to know what's going on. I'm a bit confused having read the last couple of posts.

Who is who's daughter?? Ah...Google-Fo to the rescue.

River Song is Amy's and Rory's daughter. She was born Melody Pond. Hope that clears is up for you Elle, unless Google provided the answer. :D

I have to admit, it was kind of predictable. I said to my mum whilst we were watching it, that I bet she'll turn out to be their daughter, especially when the baby's name was mentioned.

I admit to be quite disappointed with the episode. It led to being EPIC, then it kinda deflated like a balloon.

Post by: Pfefferminztee on June 08, 2011, 09:34:46 am
I agree with you Midangel.
But somehow this whole season can't keep up with older seasons epicness, which is not the fault of Matt Smith, I think, but of the writing.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood

I love Matt Smith as the Dr, but this series I think hasn't been the best regarding storylines.

Post by: Has on June 08, 2011, 02:22:07 pm
I agree this half has been hit and miss for me. I liked the beginning 2 parter and last week's ep. I ADORED The Doctor's Wife, but things haven't been as good as previous seasons including last season. I hope it picks up now. I do think there is more concentration on the main story arc than the filler eps.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Elle on June 12, 2011, 06:07:52 pm
They finally aired the River Song reveal episode again. I'm not sure how I feel about it. It makes me want to go back and rewatch how she interacts with certain characters.

Especially Amy and Rory.

I'm still really not sure how I feel about the Doctor and River. I know Moffat used the Time Traveller's Wife as a template so I can see what he's going for but I'm just not so sure I'm there with him. That's why for me the Doctor's relationship with the TARDIS when it became a she resonated more. There's a deeper history and emotion there between them. We'll see where the River leads on this one. I'm iffy but they haven't lost me yet.


Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood
Post by: Ultie on June 13, 2011, 05:03:31 pm
I saw THAT reveal coming. Didn't see Amy being a ganger. But I was still surprised, there's a far cry from fan speculation and wild mass guessing to actually cannon. Though the doctorXtardis was a MASSIVE nod towards fannon by Neil Gaimen, which made plurk, twitter, and all my other feeds explode with glee

We'll see how the rest of the season goes. There's a lot of loose ends and forshadowing that doesn't seem to be that important, and yet a lot of chekov's guns and red herrings all over the place. :/

I don't normally like plays much, so I ignored everyone's advice to see one while I was recently in London. However, we did pass by a theater in which David Tennant and Catherine Tate (The Doctor and Donna) were playing the leads in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. I love that play and I love David Tennant. Unfortunately they were sold out for the remainder of our trip. All that witty repartee and I couldn't see it.  :-'

I caught up on the last 4 episodes of Doctor Who this weekend and *loved* them! Especially the last two episodes. I have decided I *must* name something "Stormaggedon." I loved the Doctor speaking Baby. And I could NOT be happier with the last episode! And now we're the ones waiting, and waiting until the next episodes. Sigh.

Definitely a cat! We have three right now, though, so the name will have to wait. Hopefully a long time.

So I was thinking about the final episode, we see River declare her love for the Doctor, but we don't really see him say the same to her - or even really show it in any way that's different than how he treats companions.

Oh, and wouldn't it be really interesting if he and River had a baby? More time lords! Maybe, anyway. We'd probably have seen some kind of foreshadowing if that were the case. Maybe ... it's neat to speculate.

Exactly. You'd think there would be some indication that he cared for her in that way/loved her before he married her, then. It's not exactly something he'd do lightly. I would've liked to have seen more development of the relationship on his side.

It’s actually happening. Sure it’s happening in a comic book, but the crossover we’ve always dreamed about will finally be a reality. The Doctor, Amy and Rory will join the crew of the Enterprise-D this May in a comic book published by IDW.

Even if you don’t normally read comics, you may want to make an exception for this. But can “Doctor Who” and “Star Trek” coexist in the same comic? Or is mixing these two popular series a bad idea?

Rory Kinnear is currently the bookies favourite to play the role.

And I've read somewhere that mentioned David Harewood in connection to the role.

I actually got to watch part of the "live event" where they unveiled him.

Post by: Mirocle on August 05, 2013, 06:41:50 am
I watched the whole thing over livestream, what a great way to finish my break from school!
I LOVE Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor, he'll do so well, I'm sure. Even though I always have him as Pilfrey in Dr Slippery in mind :D (Or Malcom Tucker in The Thick of It). I was actually proud I didn't have to google him - Tumblr went crazy yesterday :D

Post by: Cerulean on August 06, 2013, 05:39:37 pm
I watched the livestream of the announcement, which was fun. Then I watched the Doctor Who episode, "The Fires of Pompeii" with him in it. As it was playing, I said, "Isn't that Karen Gillian/Amy Pond?" Turns out I was right. Cool. One episode with an eventual companion and Doctor before they were cast in their main roles.

I'm still disappointed they went with another white male, but I'll definitely give him the benefit of the doubt. Look how much people swore Matt Smith would do a horrible job. Ha! It is nice that he's older. That should be an interesting change in dynamics.

Post by: Pendle on August 08, 2013, 02:09:32 pm
I do wonder if they're going to make him lose the accent. But I think he's going to be good in the role. I imagine him playing the role in a darker way.
Title: Re: Doctor Who/Torchwood

LOL. To be honest I never really watched Dr. Who till I moved to the UK and now I am hooked. Still need to watch the ones with Eccles in it and I saw most of the David Tennant and Matt smith ones. I like the new ones to be honest. Still haven't looked past the first episode of torchwood, but looks interesting.
