Or 'Five rounds, rapid!'.


They could only do that if they got Nicholas Courtney involved, it just wouldn't be right coming from someone else!

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


I think Davis and Co. have generally taken the right line with Doctor Who, they've kept the focus on the story and characters and used elements of the shows past without getting bogged down by kind of detail that eventually did for the Star Trek franchise.

And if Nick Courtney can't do it, then get Brigadier Winifred Bambera back...

It's a fine line, to be sure. And on the whole he's done ok at treading it. But he does seem to be on a all-consuming crusade for new, young fans (who undoubtedly are more likely to buy action figures, mugs, pyjamas, and so on), and in doing so neglects the older amongst us who kept the series going long after it had ended originally.

Actually, thinking back on it, she was rather awful...

That episode had one of my fave lines ever though...

I don't get that impression, I just think he is trying to make good family entertainment.

We're going to have to agree to differ on this one.

Anyone see the clip on Friday Night Project? Same old same old really... Although from what I've seen of the monsters in the first episode it looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Might as well be, everyone else is coming back...

I guess they're doing it because it is almost like an end of an era... what with the gap so maybe they're tying up everything and in Series 5 everything will be new.

I think series 5 will just about finish when Ashes To Ashes does. What's the betting that some tabloid starts a campaign to get Glenister made the next Doctor?

Seeing as he's just signed to do ITV's stab at Van Helsing, which is supposed to be going out in an early Saturday evening timeslot, I can't see the Beeb being keen on signing him up to play the Doctor, but BBC Wales does seem to be fairly incestuous so I don't suppose it's impossible that it could happen . . .

He'd actually be a very good choice, not in his Gene persona, but he is an excellent actor. I just adored him as Dobbin in 'Vanity Fair'.

I'd like someone older than Tennant, less sexy, and just as good an actor. Possibly a bit more of a grump, and someone less keen on hugging fine examples of humanity. Someone with a touch of distance, a more alien, alien.

I'd also like a companion not from present day London, and preferably not a girl, perhaps not even human.

I hope they take the opportunity for a shake-up and don't rest on their laurels, sticking to a succesful formula.

Also, no Daleks for a whole series please.

I'd like less Earth-based stories; I'd like them NOT to find any excuse to bring Billie Piper back; and a Doctor who's a little less predictable, who perhaps doesn't always do the right and proper thing. I've loved David Tennant in the role but it feels to me that he's taken the character as far as they'll let him.

The Observer think it's the best opening episode since the revamp, and call it a return to form after the disappointing Christmas special.

Here's hoping.

Oh yes. Another thing to add to my wishlist for the future - NEVER EVER EVER bring back Kylie.
