Oh dear - another bi-polar nut-job. I have to work with one of them and it's really no fun at all having to be at the mercy of her violent mood-swings.

I am sure that now this individual has found God, he will be (to misquote Jim Morrison) snug in the wooley cotton brain of idiocy. If he sings hymns loud enough, they might just drown out the screaming voices in his head.

It's a good job that McCoy-era script editor Andrew Cartmel didn't go ahead with his plan of implying that the Doctor was himself a God - this guy would be burning his Doctor Who collection, rather than auctioning it off... tongue.gif

Who fans are never happy unless they can grump about something . . . (although I suspect this may well be a non-story dredged up by the DS writing team).

I think it's a big fuss over nothing - with DVD recorders & Sky+, who gives a damn about exactly when something is on.

RTD isn't happy about the slot, and to a certain extent I can understand his annoyance, as having it at an earlier slot seems to imply that the show is strictly "for kids", rather than a general audience and will turn off any potential new viewers for that reason.

My exciteable five-year-old nephew is a HUGE Doctor Who fan (though in his eyes, there is only one Doctor - and his initials are DT), so the new slot will mean he doesn't have to wait so long on a Saturday, but I think the show is more than capable of holding its own in a prime-time slot.

Nerds on the Dr Who websites are also bitching about the fact that RTD has changed what the acronym UNIT stands for! wacko.gif

Well, that's a genuine bitch. Changing something like that is pretty needless, I must say.

UNIT now stands for the Unified Intelligence Taskforce. Apparently the United Nations objected to its name being used. huh.gif Not sure I believe that though!

If that is the case, then petty, petty UN. You'd think they'd have more to worry about.

But I suspect that RTD might just be playing to form, making random changes to piss off the fandom.

I heard about that last week, and whilst I couldn't really see the point at the time, having thought about it since then using the United Nations is a bit dated now.

In the sixties/seventies when UNIT was introduced people had more confidence in the UN, but it's failure to act effectively over the last few years, and the US and UK undermining it's authority with their unilateral action in Iraq, has rather taken the shine off it.

I suspect the attitude Davis and Co. are taking is that it's a trivial change, the group is still called UNIT and they will still do the same job, it's the story telling that is important not the nerdy attention to detail.

Still, it's going to be a pity if someone doesn't utter the line "I'll have to check that with Geneva" at some point . . .

Or 'Five rounds, rapid!'.

Yes, the story is king, but it does almost seem that RTD and co. do like to annoy the more avid fans.

And I have to admit, I'm in two minds as to whether to even bother with the new series. It doesn't look very good. And the return of Billie and the f'n Daleks isn't convincing me otherwise.

My biggest complaints about UNIT so far is:

1) They really haven't been used... Sure, we've seen them in the background, and there's been the nods to Dr. John Smith, but no real UNIT stories... Even McCoy had Battlefield.
2) Before he pops it... let's TRY and get the Brig back for one last episode... And if Nick Courtney can't do it, then get Brigadier Winifred Bambera back... Although I would still love to see Brigadier Alister Gordon Lethbridge Stewart one last time...
