    What we get badges!!!
    My DH still calls Peter Davison Tristan when he pops up in anything!!
    The Sherlock series is great - we get that here and we also get a US Sherlock (Elementary) with a Brit playing the lead and its different but also very good
    I wish they'd done more of the Torchwood series
    Some of the new Dr Who's are seriously scary - those stone angels especially
    To add - not seen Neverwhere over here, hope they screen it if its good

    As for Neverwhere... I read the book awhile back, but didn't realize they had made it into a series! I'll have to look into that
    I really like those episodes you listed but still have to see Midnight, which my husband says is worth watching.

    Neverwhere was actually a TV series before they made a book from it. Kind of like International Velvet!

    Since you asked so nicely, here's yours:



    Neverwhere was made more than a decade ago so I'm not sure you'd see it unless you hired/bought DVDs or downloaded!

    Speaking of badges, this one really cracks me up:

    Thanks for the badge - I'll treasure it!!
    I can't see any photos today - again
    I wonder why I never saw Neverwhere in the UK - Hywel Bennett didn't age well did he?

    I reckon a suit, and much modern clothing in general, doesn't do any favours in the eye candy department, and also (for those who lived through the eighties) that excessive make-up doesn't either, so I don't think that's the most flattering shot of Mr Smith! I was thinking about this attractiveness topic, and actually the haircut seems to figure greatly, at least for me. If it's too short it doesn't work. Mentally do a No.1 army cut on Matt Smith, does it make a difference? David Tennant also had a good haircut, not too short.

    And then there's Viggo Mortensen, who was clearly eye candy as Strider / Aragorn in Lord of the Rings, with his long hair and medieval clothes. But compare that to him short and blond in other photos, it's like chalk and cheese!

    So, for me anyway, healthy athletic body plus longish to long, well-maintained, natural-looking hair plus some sort of classical / medieval clothing seems to be a good formula for visual admiration of a male specimen.

    I mean, compare and contrast:





    Same guy, just different haircut and clothing.

    I have compared and contrasted with pleasure

    I like the short haired version.

    Did our parents think Tom Baker was sexy as the Doctor? Or Jon Pertwee? He was most definitely debonair, but it spoils it for me that I then saw him as that annoying talking scarecrow (name missing right now, it will come to me in a moment)

    DH asked: Worzel Gummidge?

    I'm struggling to combine the concepts of Tom Baker and sexy. Not that he was unaesthetic as Dr Who, but it's kind of like calling a magnificent dandelion sexy. Or a prize-winning pumpkin. Or Santa Claus. Or an intricately carved mahogany bookcase. But clearly someone did, since he was married several times, including to a co-star who was later Richard Dawkins' wife.

    Funny thing, no, differing tastes.

    Anyone notice how the Dwarves suddenly morphed into a race containing eye candy specimens in The Hobbit, which I am sure was a deliberate decision in a film lacking in elves, humans and Aragorn?
