yeah, it's a shame the BBC recorded over so many of the old episodes. should have done what Monty Python did and had someone buy the old recordings before they did it.

Episode 5 people!
I have to say that it was pretty good but not my favourite of the series. I was really annoyed when they pulled out the "strongest warriors/most dangerous race" thing and then they beat the carp out of them.
I sat there the whole time trying to remember where I had seen the face of the girl before and then it struck me that was Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, I haven't even seen that show but I am 97% sure it was the same person.
Regarding the ending I think I would have prefered it if the girl had died, it would have been the perfect change of tone and dramatic realization that the Doctor can't save everyone like in waters of mars.

I was sort of unimpressed with how he fought off the aliens. I mean, electric eels? Really? Electric eels are native to the Amazon! The Atlantic torpedo ray would have been a less dubious choice, but even then I doubt the electromagnet would have worked properly. :roll:
I was happy when they broke the sonic sunglasses, though.

oh I hope so, I'm really surprised they haven't yet. unless they've tried and she said no, but she has done specials talking about the show so it isn't like Eccleston who didn't leave on the best of terms.

so characters who need to return: the Doctor's granddaughter, and the Doctor's daughter from The Doctor's Daughter.

I figured she would, but they already asked? why the heck haven't they done that yet? she was the first companion, they need to get her back before they can't anymore.

I too was rather pleased by that development. It was very amusing.


Alright then the new episode has graced us with its presence and I must say that this is one of my favourite episodes, I love how it deals with the after math of the doctors adventures and I find the doctor at his best when he is alone or dealing with somebody new.

I want to see Tegan or Turlough again.

For me, the best 10 are, in reverse order..?

10 The eleventh hour
9 The empty Child/The Doctor Dances
8 Inferno
7 Into the Dalek
6 Revelation of the Daleks
5 The Sontaran Strategem/The Poison Sky
4 Blink
3 Genesis of the Daleks
2 Army of Ghosts/Doomsday
1 The Caves of Androzani.

Seriously, if you want to show someone everything good about Doctor Who, go for the Caves.

Welsh that is certainly a good line up but I personally wouldn't use Genesis of the Daleks, it was the first story of Tom Baker that I saw and it immediately put me off him because whilst it was about the doctors morals I couldn't get past saving one speices despite it going on to kill billions more.
I want a companion who is either from the past or the future to replace Clara. It will make things a lot more interesting.

I admit Genesis certainly had problems (a 1000 year war between two cities a gentle afternoon stroll from each other? Yeah, right.) but it had some strong cliffhangers and decent resolutions.

Which, unfortunately, can't quite be said for 'Remembrance of the Daleks'. Always love that scene you show there and the first two cliff-hangers (Dalek pursuing the Doctor upstairs and 3 Daleks cornering Ace, who closes her eyes and readies a rifle grenade...) but the resolutions were pants to both those cliffhangers. Awfully pat resolutions (Ace opens a door, then the Dalek doesn't blast the door? Doctor saves Ace with a MacGuffin he made in five minutes) can damage a story.

A companion from the future? That's a tricky one. It has to be done well or you get a Mel Bush character. She was a computer programmer at a time when not many people knew what a computer programmer was actually like (1986-1987) so they didn't give her anything intelligent to do and just made her like a Chipmunk on a high - which irritated the heck out of viewers.

Wendy Padbury's Zoe Herriot was it done well. A shop assistant who had been taught by computer. She was very intelligent and often didn't know she was insulting the Doctor (Troughton) when she used lines like "The Doctor? He's almost as intelligent as I am!" and later calculates missile trajectories faster than UNIT's computer can so they can be shot down.

Post Re: Doctor Who
And another season has drawn to a close. And what a fantastic season it was full of exciting episodes that had wonderful names and characters.
I can't wait to see River again in the Christmas episode. I always found her story tragic and wonderfully crafted.
I thought that the second last episode "heaven sent" was a fantastic one, I think the Twelth Doctor is best when he is alone. Although I didn't personally like the last episode "Hell Bent". I loved seeing Me again, she is probably my favourite character of this season. However I thought that the Hybrid was overhyped as it turned out to bee of little to no importance. I didn't like how Clara lived in the end, her death symbolised that there are consequences to traveling with the doctor, kind of like Amy and Rory. I thought the way it was done was very clever and well done, however I didn't like that it happened
