Hi Kim, I don't know of any channels that are carrying Torchwood right now. If you want to check it out for sure you can click on the Torchwood and Dr Who teams and read, you can't post unless you join the team but you might gleem some info that way.
Good Luck.

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

I am a HUGE Doctor Who fan who started watching when I found it on PBS in the 80's. My boyfriend at the time turned me on to it and the first ones I saw were with Baker as the Doctor so he is a personal favorite but I also love Pertwee and Hartnell. Talk about cheesy!! That was part of the charm :D I was EXTREMELY leery about watching any of the new ones but my husband is fascinated and I must say they are good times. My daughter recently turned me onto Torchwood and am desperate to see more of them. I have my DVR set up on BBC America to record any episodes it finds of Torchwood but if you know of any channel that carries it, please share!!

Kim

I loved in the episode, "The Doctor's Daughter", (that was just last Friday for me on Sci-Fi) when people are putting on gas masks and the Doctor says, "Are you my mummy?"

So, Ladybug, mystery solved! Your husband's white-haired doctor was John Pertwee. Good choice.

I can't decide on one favorite doctor either, although I struggle with four of them. I'd probably say my absolute favorite doctor would be either Tom Baker or Christopher Eccleston. Close behind them would be John Pertwee and Patrick Troughton.

When Doctor Who was "regenerated", I was very leery about the new Doctor Who. I was eager and excited to see it, but afraid that the feel and charm of the classic Doctor Who would be lost. How could they possibly recapture Doctor Who, almost 20 years later? How could any new actor convince me he was the Doctor? And then--there it was: big budget effects, but the soul of the Doctor Who show I loved. And the Doctor! Christopher Eccleston sold me. Brusque, sombre, shining, the twinkle in his eye... the DEPTH of the man! As far as I'm concerned, Christopher Eccleston single-handedly sold the new Doctor Who. I like David Tennant as the Doctor, but honestly, if he'd been the first doctor in the new Doctor Who (9th doctor for those who track it), I think I'd have felt, "That's not MY Doctor Who."

As for my least favorite doctor, COLIN BAKER!! (No surprise there.) I despise his curly blonde hair, he's an arrogant jerk, and he can't act.

Doctor Who vs. Star Trek: That will be another reply. Personally I think it's a bit like comparing apples and oranges, but as they're both famous science fiction shows that originated in the 1960's, it seems like some comparison could/should be done.

Hi, Saw "Are you my Mummy" and loved it. Very clever! It was a little scary but really good. Haven't seen the one about shadows yet. Saw those daleks climb the stair and almost fell out of my chair.The Doctor handled it well.I also like Star Trek and my favorite is Captain Picard. Sorry I missed so much went to visit daughter and her computer was down. Just spoke with my husband and he first saw John Pertwee as Doctor Who. emoticon

Hi,
I live in UK, so I've watched Doctor Who from the start, with the original William Hartnell.
Didn't like Colin Baker,don't think he can act, and he's a drip.
Favourite, I'm torn between 3.
Jon Pertwee of the oldies was great, loved Christopher Eccleston, but he doesn't like being typecast so didn't stay long, and David Tennant is perfect, I think.
starting next year, Russell T Davis (writer) is leaving and I can't remember the name of the new guy, but he has done some episodes already. He's a lot darker,its fab.
Don't know if you've seen any of his episodes yet,he did the one called 'are you my mummy?' and the moving statues one and the one we had this week about shadows. brilliant, it just gets better and better.
I like Star Trek (mostly) but Doctor Who for me every time and the newer the better. I mean we've even got updated daleks who can climb stairs now. lol
well this turned into an episode in itself, but you did ask.

I've introduced this thread; now I'd like to throw out a few discussion ideas.

1) How did you first encounter Doctor Who? Do you remember your first, umm.. time?
2) Who's your favorite doctor and why?
3) Who's your least favorite doctor and why?
4) Classic Doctor Who vs. new Doctor Who?
5) Doctor Who vs. Star Trek?

I'm starting a new thread for anyone who wants to talk about Doctor Who (or Torchwood)! For fans, I hope this can be a fun place to chat about a fun show. For people who know Doctor Who fans, I hope you can use this thread for education and self defense!

INTRODUCTION:
Doctor Who is a long-running British sci-fi series that started in 1963. In America, we saw it on PBS, starting in the 1970s (at least I did). It went on a looong "hiatus" in 1989 (except for a TV movie in the 1990s) and was reintroduced in 2005.

"The Doctor" is a human-looking alien who travels through time and space, taking traveling "companions" (usually from earth) along on his adventures. He also regenerates, allowing a number of actors to play the part over the years. Each doctor reflected the actor's personality and preferences, so people have favorite doctors.

The "classic" Doctor Who was a family drama laced with humor, as well as a platform for scientific theory and social commentary, and it was renouned for its charming, cheesy effects.

The "new" Doctor Who retains the essence of the classic Doctor Who, but with bigger-budget special effects and an overall heavier leaning on the drama.

For Americans: If you get the SciFi TV channel (or know someone who does), you can see the new Doctor Who series on Friday nights. It's also on BBC America on Saturdays.

Torchwood is a spinoff of the new Doctor Who series, and is also on BBC America. Torchwood Series 1 is available on DVD, which is where I've seen it. It's also very good, and more adult than Doctor Who, which is still considered a family (all ages) show.

You can check out the new Doctor Who series at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/

You can check out episode information on the original Doctor Who series at:

Let's talk about a great show!
