There's going to be a night of Dr Who to mark the coming of the new series.

There was a special screening last night of some of the new series, which included Simon's episode The Long Game. Apparently there was a good reaction to what was shown, so the new Dr Who looks to be worth the wait.

Sounds like the Guardian has a sad fanboy working for it.

Indeed... the end quote... "As a diehard Who fan, I will watch all the remaining episodes wishing, hopefully not totally in vain, that they had laid off the Ritalin." says it all.

What pisses me off about fellow fan boys is the fact that the BBC is not making it solely FOR THEM. There's a whole couple of generations who grew up mostly WHOless and these also need to be kept interested, or the BBC will lose ratings and the Good Doctor will disappear into E-Space once again...

Exactly. So what if the special effects were 'never the point in the past'. That was out of necessity because they didn't have the budget or the technology. Why shun using cutting edge technology just to keep the fan boys happy?

Fuck 'em... They need to GET OUT OF THE PAST!!!

Probably the same idiots who slag off Battlestar Galactica 'cause it had a few more space battle scenes that DIDN'T USE STOCK FOOTAGE!

And you know if the BBC hadn't of used all the new effects and had stuck to the old ways, the fan boys would of moaned about them not using the technology avaliable to them.

Bah, it doesn't matter if this was the be all and end all of TV. It was still gonna get critised no matter what, just because of what it is and has to live up too.

I`ll watch it with an open mind, even if I can`t stand Billie. Apparently she`s very good in it. And at least she`s not Sophie *I really am an actor, really* Aldred.

I loved Ace.

But then, I was about 5 at the time and really loved Jason Donovan too. I'm so glad I'm over that now.

Ace just annoyed me, even more so than Mel, because she was meant to act the way she did, that`s what companions do. Scream, get captured, that deal.

Ace, however, just reeked of production meetings. "Right, we need a companion with attitude, that`s what the kids want nowadays. Now, let`s forget about the Tegan thing, they weren`t ready for a gobby Aussie, and besides, she`s slagging off the show now anyway. Let`s make the new companion a teenager with a Mockney accent, who gets into all kinds of scrapes with a baseball bat!!"

Please.

I went to a mini-con with Terence Dicks and Barry Letts and they were quite proud of the effects used, mainly in the 70s I'd have to say. Apparently there was a lot of experimientation which led the FX guys going on to bigger and better things and developing their talents.

So FX were part of the point back in the heyday. Now they look dated yes, but with a 70s TV budget, you're going to do the best with what you've got. In the 21st century we can do these things better and cheaper, so why shouldn't we?
