I... heh... I wrote a thing. It does have mature content but nothing graphic. If you ship River/Eleven and want feels...

My favorite companions are :
Sarah Jane
Ace
Donna
and
Rose.
Who DOESN'T Love Rose?!?!?!?
Probably the best recent episode Imo is "Blink." Too bad that they have overused the Weeping Angels bc "Blink" was truly scary.
Shame about Elisabeth Sladen. She will be missed...as well as Rik Mayall.

Rik Mayall will forever be Rik in the Young Ones for me. RIP A sad loss and too young.
Is this the 'hot' dwarf? John Mitchell ex of the UK Being Human series.

His name's Aidan Turner. If by "hot" dwarf you're referring to Kili, yes, that's him.

Sue - the sudden addition of eye-candy-dwarves was definitely noted

I had no idea that Elisabeth Sladen had died - sad.

I loved it when she returned in Doctor Who, and I thought that she probably did too.

I too grew up on The Young Ones. Rik Mayall impacted on a LOT of lives but

And yes! Worzel Gummidge was the annoying talking scarecrow.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

I've been meaning to post this from You Tube:
Kasterborous Doctor Who News and Reviews | All the latest Doctor Who news and reviews with our weekly podKast, features and interviews, and a long-running forum.

IMHO the dancing is better than that in RH, and it's quite a tribute. Enjoy!!

Right, I saw the new Dr Who last night and fell asleep in the middle of it, much to my husband's chagrin. To be fair I'd had an intense day, but I found the episode un-charming and humourless before I dozed off, and Steven Moffat appeared to direct a lot of his writing effort towards convincing younger viewers to accept a middle-aged incarnation... I suppose a lot of newer viewers have only known the era of the younger actors...what did you guys think?

I haven't watched it yet but my son said he thought it was 'too dark' for a younger audience
I thought Peter Capaldi was great in 'The Hour' but I can't help but think he's too old for this part now fans have got used to much younger 'Doctors'
But then I thought Matt Smith would be a dismal failure!!!

I DID,TOO--FELL ASLEEP!!
I am an arts major, theater and music, and I can smell poor writing. You know, Netflicks teamed up recently with BBC and produced a great 6 part series called, "Happy Valley." It was so engaging that I couldn't stop watching. Great character development, vulnerabilities and strengths, flawed heroes and damaged villains, really good stuff.
The opening season for D.W. Was not worth watching twice.

Have you seen Peter Capaldi in Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere? There he plays the Angel Islington, really good performance and a super show.

I'm more objecting to the writing than the acting in this pilot episode. I think some of the Matt Smith / David Tennant episodes were also very dark, but usually had a little humour for comic relief. My husband, of course, is saying, "But there was humour! You were asleep!" ...nothing that made me smile in the first half hour though. Didn't help Dr Who was staggering around with post-regeneration amnesia.

Well, a pilot is only a pilot. I actually hated the pilot of Breaking Bad, it was so full of cliches, but am glad I persisted with that series...

Matt Smith, that really worked, didn't it?
