SparkPeople New Who Team Messageboard 13th Doctor New Years' Special - Spoiler If you haven't seen the latest trailer that they are showing during the marathon on BBC America. The trailer has the Doctor saying the DNA is for the most dangerous species in the universe. Graham asks if they have a name. The Doctor doesn't say anything but over the title card you hear a familiar voice saying "Exterminate." WooHoo! Thu, 27 Dec 2018 11:07:33 EST Marathon BBC America has a Doctor Who marathon that started today and runs thru the premiere of the New Years' episode on New Years' Day. Mon, 24 Dec 2018 21:23:29 EST It's a Woman! Loving Jodie Whittaker so far, but I'm not sure the writing is up to par with Moffit's. Rosa Parks is one of my heroines, but I found the episode a bit preachy. I'm totally in on diversity and equal rights -- I just felt like this episode was more of a history lesson for young kids than a Doctor Who adventure story. <BR> <BR> Think about the other historical episodes: Van Gogh and Shakespeare. This one wasn't nearly as clever or fast-paced. It also lacked a really compelling monster/villain.... Tue, 23 Oct 2018 08:15:46 EST Doctor Who Marathon - Amazing news BBC America has a Doctor Who marathon starting at 1 pm eastern on Tuesday September 25th. According to their ads this will run to when the first new episode airs on Sunday October 7th. <BR> <BR> The amazing news about this is that for the first time BBC America will be able to show the 9th Doctor episodes. So at 1 pm on the 25th they will show "Rose" <em>244</em> Sun, 16 Sep 2018 13:25:37 EST New actors joining Jodie for next season Saw the other new actors for next season on TV Line: <link><BR>son-11-cast-bradley-walsh-tosin-cole-m<BR>andip-gill-sharon-d-clarke/ </link> <BR> <BR> There will be 10 50 minute episodes Fall 2018. Good thing we have the Christmas episode to look forward to because Fall is a long time from now.

I don't have BBC America right now so I've been debating how I'll be able to watch. Options include seeing how much it would cost to add it back to my cable or subscribing to the season on Amazon. <BR> <BR> But there is another option for the premieres. I'm going to see them in the theater Monday 04/17 (great b-day present to myself). Fathom ...

My daughter and I both love the Doctor (Ten is our favorite!) and all things Whovian. :) Sun, 7 Jun 2015 16:56:52 EST Greetings! <em>8</em> <em>12</em> <em>31</em> Hello! <em>31</em> <em>12</em> <em>8</em> <BR> <BR> My name is Bonnie.

It airs on ABC, Tuesday nights at 8pm et. The show got a cheer in TV Guide's Oct. 13-26, 2014 issue which says it is "#blessed with the comic timing of star Karen Gillan and the romantic charm of John Cho." <BR> <BR> Jenna Coleman has a write up as a scene stealer in "Masterpiece Mystery's Death comes to Pemberley" which premieres Sunday 10/26 at 9pm et on PBS.

Yeah, DT is my Doctor. <BR> <BR> I am happy to join you - I am mid 30's, married, kid free (can travel on the TARDIS anytime!), and working on losing 80 pounds. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to getting to know you! Wed, 8 Oct 2014 16:14:45 EST Season 8 - Caretaker I really enjoyed this episode! All season Capaldi has been both distancing himself from Clara (no hugs, making comments about her appearance) and showing a bit of jealousy with the new boyfriend. Even his assumption that she was dating the guy with the bow tie put a smile on his face - and realizing it was the soldier really annoyed him. <BR> <BR> Soldier: maybe a theme for this season? He disliked the soldiers in "Into the Dalek", Clara dating a soldier, the little soldier toy given to youn... Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:42:25 EST Hello! Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to be joining a Doctor Who group, I always love meeting other Whovians! I've been a fan of the Doctor since I was little, watching Tom Baker as the Doctor on PBS. I've even introduced my 9 yr old daughter to the show, we love watching together. I look forward to getting to know you all! Sat, 27 Sep 2014 19:53:01 EST Clara I just read that Clara will be leaving the show at the Christmas special. It seems like she just started to me . . .

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 00:42:43 EST Pay Money To See The Premier Early The Doctor Who Season 8 premiere episode “Deep Breath” is going to be available in cinemas a week before it airs on TV. Call it a money grab, or call it a great opportunity for fans to see the show in theaters, but it will run twice on the big screen at more than 550 theaters in the US (1500 theaters world wide.) Tickets are $12.50. What do you think? <BR> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 19:48:52 EST The Escape Artist There was a mystery show on our PBS station - "The Escape Artist" - and David Tennant was the main character! He was quite good! <BR> Also, I saw Peter Capaldi playing the villain on the new Musketeers TV show on BBC America. How can he do that and Dr. Who as well? Thu, 26 Jun 2014 07:12:41 EST Graduation = More Fun Times Greetings! My name is Aubrey and I graduate nursing school exactly two weeks from today! After several years of plodding through college, I'm greatly looking forward to a new career and extra time to work on myself and my health. <BR> <BR> Oh, yes, and Who. When I found out that it wouldn't be back on the air until AUGUST *tear*, I said, "Sheesh, I will be a nurse before I get more Doctor!" Thu, 5 Jun 2014 00:27:50 EST August! A teaser trailer was released May 23rd. Here's a link for it on BBC America's web site: <link><BR>/the-new-doctor-lands/ </link> <BR> <BR> It tells us season 8 (new series) begins in August. There are 5 Saturday's in August and no clue as to which one will be the day. Maybe we'll get a present and it will be August 2nd.

I'm new to Doctor Who, also, as of a couple of months ago. Tue, 24 Dec 2013 17:25:59 EST Hello! *Waves to everyone!* <BR> <BR> Long time Whovian, but first time poster. Didn't even know this group was here. Glad I stumbled on to it! :) Thu, 19 Dec 2013 09:40:55 EST Doctor, will you sonic me?

I have been a fan since the 4th Doctor was on our PBS station. and I am so glad to see that the show is strong and attracting so many new fans. Tomorrow I am going to the theater to see the 50th anniversary special in 3D! Sun, 24 Nov 2013 23:06:03 EST The Day of the Doctor -- SPOILERS don't read this thread if you haven't watched yet or don't want SPOILERS! <BR> <BR> How did you like the show? I loved it! I was a bit sad that there weren't more cameos from former Doctors, companions or Captain Jack. But I was thrilled to see Tom Baker at the end in the museum, and of course all the doctors on the monitors when they were going to freeze Gallifrey. <BR> <BR> It was so funny! I love the buddy-talk between 10 and 11! I love that the fez was so prominent...that was clearly fo... Sun, 24 Nov 2013 20:57:24 EST Watch "The Night of the Doctor" OMG! You have got to watch this mini-episode that's been released. It is a prequel to "The Day of the Doctor." <link><BR>11/watch-new-doctor-mini-episode-night<BR>-doctor/ </link> I got to it on BBC America's website but it's on YouTube. <BR> <BR> Enjoy! Thu, 14 Nov 2013 22:50:46 EST Eleventh Doctor Special BBC America has been advertising the Eleventh Doctor Special when I've been watching ST:TNG this evening. It will air Sunday 11/24 at 8pm and is followed by the episodes "The Impossible Astronaut" and "Day of the Moon." <BR> <BR> We have a great quantity of Doctor Who this month - it's wonderful. I'm really looking forward to everything. I'll have to record some of the new stuff that will be on when I'm at school. For instance, Monday 11/18 at 9pm et there is a 2 hour special titled "Doc... Sat, 9 Nov 2013 21:00:54 EST Hello! I'm new to sparkpeople and as soon as I joined I had to see if there were any groups obsessed with Doctor Who! Pleasure to make the acquaintance of everyone on this board. Wed, 30 Oct 2013 10:20:13 EST The Day of the Doctor UGH! I found out they were selling tickets for Nov 23 cinema screenings of The Day of the Doctor at same time as the UK broadcast and the online sales were so confusing....we didn't get them but did get for the 2nd screening which is Nov 25. Going to watch it at a friend's place on the 23rd (I don't have cable). And in cinema 3D on the 25th. <BR> <BR> Anyone else get tickets? Or having a viewing party? Fri, 25 Oct 2013 10:33:50 EST Tenth Doctor Special The Tenth Doctor special will be on BBC America Sunday 10/27 at 8pm et. The episodes they are showing as part of the special are from season 4 - "The Stolen Earth" and "Journey's End." I really like those episodes and David Tennant is participating in the special so it should be great. <BR> <BR> According to their schedule, they start their celebration of 10 at noon (Eastern time) with "The Christmas Invasion" <BR> <BR> And, if you haven't already seen it - watch the new 50th anniversary ... Mon, 21 Oct 2013 12:38:10 EST W.H.O. Doctor I just saw World War Z, and to my surprise Peter Capaldi was in it! The funny thing is he plays a WHO (world health organization) doctor - so I guess he will go from WHO doctor to Doctor Who! <BR> I hope he plays Doctor Who very different from his character in World War Z - it was a very minor part so not much development there. Wed, 2 Oct 2013 07:21:41 EST Ninth Doctor Special BBC America will air the special about the Ninth Doctor on Sunday 09/29 at 8pm et. The special will be followed by the episodes "Bad Wolf" and "Parting of the Ways." <BR> <BR> I'll be interested to see if they have anything new from Christopher Eccleston since he hasn't had anything to do with Doctor Who since he left the part. All the other former Doctors who are still living have participated in their specials. Sat, 21 Sep 2013 19:24:15 EST Torchwood: Miracle Day Has anyone seen this yet? What did you think? I'm actually watching it as I type. Intriguing already. Laughing at Gwen's paranoid survivalist mentality (actually, I guess it's not paranoid if there really is someone out to get you). However, Gwen lugging her baby around during gun fights is just annoying and ridiculous. <BR> <BR> Spoiler: crispy fried "dead" guy opening his eyes--creepy and gross. <BR> <BR> P.S. I do NOT like Bill Pullman as a murdering pedophile. He will always be the ho... Tue, 17 Sep 2013 22:24:06 EST Run! Hi, I'm Deborah and I just found this team.

Mon, 2 Sep 2013 13:12:00 EST Eighth Doctor Special The special on the Eighth Doctor airs on BBC America Saturday August 31st at 8pm et. The special is followed by the TV movie that stars the 8th doctor. <BR> <BR> Paul McGann played the 8th doctor and the movie is available on DVD. It has a little bit of weirdness as far as the history of the Doctor is concerned but when the series came back they did include Paul McGann's Doctor as one of his regenerations.

Sorry it's such short notice. <BR> , <BR> The Seventh Doctor special airs tonight (July 27th) at 7pm et on BBC America followed by the episode "Remembrance of the Daleks" The Seventh Doctor was portrayed by Sylvester McCoy. I'm really looking forward to this because I have seen very little of the Seventh Doctor. <BR> <BR> If you missed the previous specials, from 5pm et to 7pm et BBC America is showing the specials on the Third to the Sixth Do...

I think it's because there are new episodes of Copper on Sunday nights. <BR> <BR> The special on the Sixth Doctor will air Saturday night (June 29th) at 8:30pm. The Sixth Doctor episode they are showing is "Vengeance on Varos." My Doctor Who book ends with the Fifth Doctor and I don't remember too much past him. It got harder to find the episodes. A lot of PBS stations (that had been the place to find the Doctor) stopped carrying th... Thu, 27 Jun 2013 10:12:23 EST Doctor Who Experience Has anyone been to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff?

Tue, 11 Jun 2013 09:44:38 EST Hello Hi, My name is Regi. <BR> <BR> I remember Doctor Who being on TV when I was young, but my family didn't watch any of it. So when my 15 year old told me she was obsessed with Dr Who, I was surprised... all i could think of was the black and white shows that were on back in the day (did i date myself there?) Finally she made me sit down and watch an episode and after that I was hooked. We have seen everything Netflix has available and we are waiting to borrow season 7 from friends (althou...

Fri, 17 May 2013 08:50:55 EST Fifth Doctor special The special about the Fifth Doctor is now on BBC America's schedule at 8pm et on May 26th. It will be followed by a fifth Doctor episode but they haven't announced which one yet. The 26th is definitely a Doctor Who day on BBC America starting at 10am with a marathon of season 7.2 episodes, followed by just the special part of the specials on the first 4 Doctors. <BR> <BR> In case you didn't know, there is a connection between the fifth Doctor (Peter Davidson) and the tenth Doctor (David Te... Thu, 16 May 2013 00:59:16 EST Womb Has anyone else seen the movie "Womb" with Matt Smith? It was one of the slowest moving movies I have ever seen, but he was rather good in it.

My little experiment in dis-involving myself from all groups did not achieve the effect I was searching for.... <BR> <BR> So...just to irritate a couple of people right off the bat..... <BR> <BR> I'm kinda missing Amy. <BR> <BR> Matt Sat, 20 Apr 2013 09:54:35 EST Fourth Doctor Special The special about the Fourth Doctor will air Sunday, 04/25 at 8pm et. The Fourth Doctor was played by Tom Baker (my first Doctor). The ads on BBC America has said they will be showing an episode from 1975. That means that Sarah Jane Smith is one of the companions in the episode. But they haven't said which episode yet. <BR> <BR> I'm really looking forward to seeing this special since it's about my first Doctor. <em>41</em> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 23:43:03 EST Multi Doctor Arc Confirmed We saw our first images of rehearsals for the official 50th Anniversary Doctor Who episode this weekend, and there were pictures taken of both Smith and Tennant holding a script in their hands. It is also rumored that Jenna-Louise Coleman and Billie Piper will be part of the episode. Mon, 1 Apr 2013 18:11:12 EST Special about the 3rd Doctor Finally on the BBC America site it tells us the episode that will be shown as part of the 3rd Doctor special. It's "Spearhead from Space." There are a number of firsts for this story. It was the first Jon Pertwee episode, the first in the 70s, and the first Doctor Who in color. At the end of the last of the Patrick Troughton episodes, the Time Lords made the Doctor regenerate and exiled him to Earth. <BR> <BR> Those of you who have only seen New Who episode will have heard of the Brigadi...

The information on BBC America's web site doesn't indicate that they are showing one of his episodes but I hope they do. <BR> <BR> The Second Doctor was portrayed by Patrick Troughton. The ad said something along the line that when Matt Smith was approached about becoming the Doctor he looked at Patrick Troughton's portrayal for inspiration. From what I've read about the ... Mon, 11 Feb 2013 13:46:19 EST Doctor Who Workout Challenge I'm on Pinterest (such a lovely website) and I have an entire board committed to the Doctor. A couple of my posts are of a workout that you do while watching Doctor Who. Every time a specific event happens, you do a certain move for so many reps. I'm going to try it. I hope it goes okay. Mon, 4 Feb 2013 17:41:53 EST New Episodes Coming March 30, 2012 Daughter and I looking forward to them. <BR> <BR> They are also starting a special series on this Saturday (1/26-I think) covering all 11 Doctors.

Kso, DW has been on my radar for like 5 years because of a whovian I used to live with and I let SO MUCH TIME go by before investigating ... shameful. <BR> <BR> Just finished season 1 (yep that's right, I'm brand new!) in like 2 days and between work and working out and hanging out with my hubby I'm making progress (oh to have a week to make some real headway ... sigh). <BR> <BR> Can't describe my excitement that there's even one DW team here! Wed, 9 Jan 2013 13:56:19 EST Fish Fingers and Custard Hey there fellow Whovians. It's nice to be apart of group that won't think I'm weird for quoting Doctor Who on a regular basis. I hope to share all of my excitement with you guys. Thanks for having me. Mon, 7 Jan 2013 23:44:38 EST Broadchurch Tenth Doctor and Rory together? <BR> <BR><BR>oadchurch/ <BR> <BR> Excuse me while I go and hyperventilate. Mon, 7 Jan 2013 06:42:06 EST FINGERS ON LIPS! ...Because it's time for me to attempt to type an introduction. <BR> <BR> I'm a 26 year old girl who is obsessed with Doctor Who. I'm a pretty new Whovian though, but I watched seasons 1 - 6 of New Who really quickly throughout last month. I'm really happy this team is here because I feel like having people to talk about Doctor Who with will help me keep interest in Spark People :3 <BR> <BR> I'm working full time in addition to school and suck at time management. I'm hoping that at least tr... Fri, 4 Jan 2013 23:18:42 EST Howdy!! HI!!! I am a stay at home mom of 3 and new to Spark People. I love just about everything that has to do with Doctor Who and am really excited to find that there are other people that like the Doctor too ( my husband cannot stand the show)! Look forward to getting to know y'all! Tue, 1 Jan 2013 21:35:46 EST S7 - The Snowmen What did you think of the new Christmas special? I loved the new interior of the TARDIS. The mystery about Oswin got deeper. I thought the special was great and really sets up the episodes to come. I can't wait. Wed, 26 Dec 2012 10:56:40 EST Fan Art -Original Song Been around for a bit but thought with the new American audience some of you may not have heard- and might enjoy, my tribute song: <BR> <link><BR>idmen/androidmen.mp3 </link> Mon, 17 Dec 2012 16:22:05 EST TV Guide cover Doctor Who won the TV Guide fan favorites cover contest this year. So Doctor Who is the cover story in the Dec. 10-23, 2012 issue. The article gives a short history of the show and talks a little about the Christmas episode. <BR> Oh, and for John Barrowman fans, he'll be in the Dec. 12th episode of Arrow on the CW (maybe a recurring character). TV guide has an interview with him. Sun, 9 Dec 2012 11:04:08 EST Run! I am not actually a runner, part of why I find it so funny. I have a soft spot for Martha, and after a lot of thinking I decided its because she's got middle child syndrome, or divorced parent syndrome or something. I also like Stephen Moffat's stories. And I'm River Song tolerant. Now you know all my secrets. Fri, 7 Dec 2012 15:50:46 EST Countdown Calendar BBCA started a countdown gallery. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>atures/doctor-who-adventure-calendar-2012 </link> <BR> <BR> There's also new trailers and pics. I love how they both spoilers here. <BR> <BR> It's nice to get excited about Christmas again... <BR> <BR> Matt <BR> Sat, 1 Dec 2012 22:34:13 EST Hello Sweeties! Hello fellow whovians. My name is Penny.. I began watching Doctor Who about 3 months ago. I've seen all of the new (9,10,11) episodes.. and absolutely LOVE the show! Looking forward to talking to all of you about our favorite Doctor and his companions! Sun, 25 Nov 2012 13:10:15 EST "Best of" Specials I'm loving the newest "Best of" specials (Just saw the Best of the Christmas Specials) as they finally address all of the doctors from the new series. I wish they'd go back and make a new Best of the Companions. Seriously. That one only dealt with Matt Smith's companions. Ditto for Best of the Monsters. Not sure why they snubbed the companions and monsters of Eccleston and Tennant, but they (whoever they might be) need to seriously go back and fix that unconscionable oversight. I suspec...

The writers knew how much we loved Brian Pond, okay Brian Williams, so they had Arthur Darvil read part of the scene and drew a cartoon to go with it. <BR> <BR> I love it, I cried... and now I can NOT wait the 11 weeks until the Christmas special. <BR> <BR> What did y... Sun, 14 Oct 2012 10:08:30 EST S7: The Angels Take Manhatten Next to the Silents, I think the Angels are some of the scariest characters in Whoville. However, there were a couple episodes (Time of Angels 2 parter-- I think) where I think the angels lost some of their scare factor. Maybe the sheer numbers of them...I can't put my finger on it. Anyhow, even though there were a large number of angels in this episode, they were back to their bad, scary selves. (Though the toothy Statue of Liberty wasn't quite what I was hoping for--a little too cheesy an... Sun, 30 Sep 2012 11:27:13 EST Doctor Who Workout Game I just saw this joke article that would actually probably make a crazy workout: <BR> <BR> <BR> <link><BR>oducing-the-doctor-who-workout-program<BR>-pic/ </link> <BR> <BR> Do this EVERYTIME: <BR> <BR> -Someone says "Doctor" = 10 jumping jacks <BR> <BR> -The Doctor says "run!" = 15 squats <BR> <BR> -The Doctor uses his Sonic Screwdriver = 10 crunches <BR> <BR> -Someone gets in OR out of the TARDIS = 10 bicycle crunches <BR> <BR> -You hear the TA... Sun, 30 Sep 2012 10:34:12 EST S7: The Power of Three Any thoughts? As I watched this episode, I realize that some of my favorite episodes are those when the Doctor is on Earth (Partners in Crime, The Lodger, etc). I'm really enjoying this one as well. Of course, the cynical part of me supposes that I like it partly because it's one more episode down until Amy is gone. lol <BR> <BR> Oh, with the cubes fused to their mouths...did anyone else think, "Are you my mummy?" Sun, 23 Sep 2012 19:09:13 EST S7: A Town Called Mercy I really liked the twist in this. Bad Guy/Good Guy remix. lol I'm not sure I liked the heavy handed dropping of hints that the Doctor requires companions to keep him compassionate. We get that; we don't need it shoved down our throats. I love it when the doctor goes all bad-@ss, but Matt Smith doesn't pull of ranting bad@ss very well. I laughed instead. <BR> <BR> Can't wait to see the return of Rory's dad in the next episode! Woot woot! Sun, 16 Sep 2012 18:48:11 EST Just joined Hello, <BR> <BR> I just joined SparkPeople and I was excited that there was a Dr Who team to join! I haven't been a fan for long, just since David Tennant and Billie Piper, but I have caught most of the "newer" episodes. I've never seen any older episodes but I definitely want to! <BR> <BR> I'm single and I don't have kids but my sister likes to call me a geek or nerd based on my love of the Doctor. I've gotten her to start watching the show now, so she can't say anything anymore. I've bee... Wed, 12 Sep 2012 15:58:10 EST Am I the only one... take FOREVER to realize that Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who? Sheesh. I feel so slooooooow. Sun, 9 Sep 2012 22:17:59 EST hello I'm new here and so glad to find others who love Dr Who as much as I do. My daughters think I'm a big geek LOL. I used to watch it when Tom Baker was Dr Who and was so happy to find it on the Space Channel (in Toronto Canada) a few years ago. Sun, 9 Sep 2012 20:37:39 EST S7: Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Ok, Mr. Weasley as Rory's dad. Brilliant!! Love it. Filch as a bad guy on Dr. Who--go figure. (Just making comments as I watch.) Sat, 8 Sep 2012 22:11:22 EST Time Gaps Something that I have noticed with the current Doctor and his companions...there seems to be a lot of "away" time...From the very first episode where he goes for five minutes and returns 12 years later, and at the end of that one he left for a few minutes and returned 2 years later. <BR> <BR> I think I read somewhere that the next episode is set 10 months from first one...does it mean anything? Moffat doesn't do random. Or is it a throw back to the classic Who, which I have not watched? <...

Oswin rocks! Not sure she can knock Donna out of my top spot, but the potential is there. <BR> <BR> Mon, 3 Sep 2012 23:22:39 EST New Amy & Rory Series The first episode (sort of a prequel) for the Amy and Rory web miniseries "Pond Life" has gone up on line. <BR> <BR> <link><BR>feature=player_embedded </link> Mon, 27 Aug 2012 18:05:59 EST Show starts September 1 on BBCAmerica I'm probably stating the obvious to most of you.

I introduced my two boys to The Doctor in 2005. I have been introducing my students as well. The mythology of The Doctor is great. Today is my first day here at Sparkpeople. I am looking for support and people with which to share my love. Thu, 2 Aug 2012 18:24:26 EST The 11 Faces of Doctor Who I'm sure by now, all loyal fans of the Doctor have run out and gotten their copy of Entertainment Weekly. Well, they have a great bit of additional Who information up on their website, including a brilliant overview of ALL of the Doctors. Check it out: <BR> <link>,,20615578,00<BR>.html </link> Mon, 30 Jul 2012 14:47:06 EST Inside the Cult of Doctor Who Hello, sweeties. Looks like we are all out & about and enjoying the summer. I wanted to give you a heads up, if you didn't know, that there will be an article on the "Cult" of Doctor Who in this weeks's Entertainment Weekly Magazine!!!! <BR> <BR> SO Glad I work at the library and will be able to fondle, er, read it right away! I read Entertainment Weekly now. EW is cool! <BR> <BR> wait, you're still here? Get out there and buy a copy! Allons y! Wed, 25 Jul 2012 21:21:13 EST Hello! Hey everyone, I'm a big Who fan... New Who at least, I've watched a few Old Who episodes/arcs but they just don't deal well with my ADD. Eleven is so far my favourite Doctor, I think the fifth series was pretty close to perfection. Unfortunately, I know that if the Doctor appeared outside my window and wanted to whisk me away, I definitely wouldn't be able to keep up! So I'm trying to improve my cardio and one day, I'll be able to do all that running! Sun, 1 Jul 2012 13:34:46 EST Hiii from Katie in Germany Hi there! I am studying abroad in Germany, and will be back in CA soon! The year has been awesome, but I have spent a lot of time indoors or sitting around, making me lazy and tired...Now I really want to strengthen my legs and lose weight in my tummy! I have been working with kids off and on, and will be getting my teaching credential next year, so I'd really like to feel able to run around and play with the kids more! Plus, I really feel like I am at my prime age-wise, and I do not think i... Fri, 22 Jun 2012 12:14:12 EST I have a great kid Today is her 13th birthday and she absolutely loved her Doctor Who t-shirts and fez. We got her the Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey shirt and of course the Bow Ties are Cool one as well. I told her about the Weeping Angels ones, and she thanked me for not getting her one of those...they still freak her out. <BR> <BR> Makes a geeky papa proud..... <BR> <BR> Matt <BR> Fri, 15 Jun 2012 12:58:29 EST New shows I was listening to a new podcast and they were speculating that the new shows should start airing around mid to late August. They said it coincided with some big media event in England, don't remember the details. <BR> <BR> The podcast was the inaugural issue of WhoHype from <BR> <BR> That brings me to a question..any good podcast out there?

It's not REALLY a sonic screwdriver BUT the concept is pretty interesting. <BR> <BR> "...researchers from Dundee University have replicated at least some of the screwdriver's functionality with a machine capable of lifting and turning suspended objects." <BR> <BR> :3 Fri, 20 Apr 2012 11:36:53 EST Another reason to love the Doctor! From a Grandma's perspective : I can call my grandkids "Sweetie" and they don't think it's ooshie or gooshie! They just think I'm quoting River! Woo hoo! <BR> Fri, 30 Mar 2012 15:22:46 EST What's in your kitchen that the Doctor would eat? So I've been slowly taking my boyfriend through the new seasons of Doctor Who. We just got to the beginning of the Matt Smith episodes and watched 11th Hour. My boyfriend and I were discussing last night what foods we have in our house that might have made an appealing combination to a newly regenerated Doctor. My boyfriend came up with some truly disgusting combos, far worse than fish fingers and custard. Clif Bars and Spaghetti Sauce, Perogies and Salsa, Kosher Dill Pickles and Caramel S... Wed, 28 Mar 2012 11:00:09 EST Dancing with the Stars/Christmas Carol Hi! <BR> <BR> Missed last week's intro for DWTS, but is Katherine (she's evidently Welsh), the opera singer who played Abigail in DW's Christmas Carol? She also sang last season on DWTS. She always looks just a little different each time I see her and I'm not quite sure if it's her. Yes, I could go google it, but I'd like to check with Spark Who Peeps first. <BR> <BR> I think it is her, but I've been wrong before. Need more WHO!! So huuuuuungry! <BR> <BR> Tue, 27 Mar 2012 00:16:16 EST David Tennant wants YOU to get in shape. :)<BR>vid-runs-sports-relief-mile.html <BR> <BR> <BR> That is all! Sun, 25 Mar 2012 12:51:08 EST Where would YOU go in the TARDIS? Keeping in mind the Doctor's Rules about not changing "Fixed" points in history, where would you go? What would you change? <BR> <BR> I don't know if anyone else saw this news story:<BR>arless-bunny-squashed-by-cameraman <BR> <BR> I would go back in time and save the bunny. <BR> <BR> :-) Fri, 16 Mar 2012 12:14:09 EST Allons-y! I know not many are on here now but I'm Jen. I'm 23 and a huge Doctor Who fan, New Who at least. Still haven't caught up any of the old ones. I think that my favorite doctor is David Tennant but I also love Christopher Eccleston and Matt Smith. Um, that's all for for now. :D Sat, 10 Mar 2012 02:22:54 EST Madame Hooch=Cassandra I really must be slow...or maybe it was a convergence in the universe that sparked this realization. Cassandra (the skin trampoline we first met in series 1 with Chris Eccleston) is the same actress who plays Madame Hooch in Harry Potter. I knew she looked familiar, I just never made the connection. Okay, the skin tarp didn't have many distinguishing characteristics. lol I'll use that in my defense. I love little surprises/connections like this. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a great weeke... Fri, 2 Mar 2012 22:05:05 EST Hello Sweetie Hi everyone. So excited to find a group of Who fans. <BR> My name is Suzanne and I live in Ontario, Canada. I became a Who fan from my hubbie who has watched it since he was a child. (We have many episodes on VHS taped from Public TV). <BR> So, my first doctor was Jon Pertwee. <BR> Love the New Who and I loved every new doctor. Eccelston was great. Took a few episodes to like Tennant but I really liked him as it went on. Again, took a few episodes to like Smith too, but I like that they are ... Fri, 24 Feb 2012 10:04:56 EST Hi there! Hello, <BR> first of all sorry for the lack of a doctor who related subject line, but I just woke up and I'm still too sleepy... My name is Fran, I'm almost 30 and I'm here on SP to lose about 30lbs. Thanks to some enlightened friends I discovered Doctor Who a while back and it's been my favourite show ever since. <BR> Have a great rest of the weekend! Sun, 19 Feb 2012 04:03:19 EST New Season starts shooting Dr Who will be back. According to the BBC Dr Who site, they will start shooting the next season on February 20. <BR> <BR> Now, I have played catch up through Netflix, and I broke down and bought last they show it regularly on BBC America? I know we got to see the Christmas special, I am so hoping that it is on there, or how do we get our fix? <BR> <BR> Matt Sun, 12 Feb 2012 10:21:47 EST A Lena appears...Don't Blink! Hello! My name is Lena! After writing many introductions on a variety of boards, one would think I'd of gotten better at it by this point. Sadly, I still blank on interesting and or witty things to say, so let's just get on with it shall we? <BR> <BR> 1.) I love Dr.Who <BR> 2.) Technically my first Doctor was the eighth doctor who had all of one appearance in a made for tv movie when I was a kid. Bad luck on his part.There's books and radio dramas I guess, but he still got the short stick, i... Sat, 11 Feb 2012 14:50:36 EST Who related... Sort of. If we're playing 6 degrees of the Doctor. And really we only need two. <BR> <BR> Has anyone seen the 2009 BBC version of Hamlet with DT as the titular character? Love, love, love it. <BR> <BR> To be fair, I love DT is just about everything. But he brings a very "doctory" feel to the role that I haven't seen before. Hamlet is always somewhat...let's call it manic. But DT plays it off as a driving need to know and to understand that I haven't seen many actors be able to pull off as s... Sat, 11 Feb 2012 09:20:30 EST Why, hello there. Hello everyone. I'm Brittiny, or Bri as most call me. I got into Doctor Who a few months back, and am currently watching season 4. It's quickly become my favorite show, and I am spreading that love. I'm getting my boyfriend into it. :) <BR> <BR> I'm kinda shy at first, but don't be afraid to come say hey! Thu, 2 Feb 2012 20:00:41 EST Another New Companion Greetings from a new Whovian! I'm Erin. I began watching Doctor Who in December through Netflix. The hubs and I are soooooooooo hooked! You never look at the world the same way again. (And my Pinterest boards are so chock full of DW it's ridiculous.) <BR> <BR> I've had a Spark account for several years--I lost 90 lbs from 2006-2009, then I fell off the exercise bandwagon.

Wed, 18 Jan 2012 16:37:33 EST Hello Name's Matt <BR> <BR> I discovered the new Who through Netflix and I am so glad I did. I was in the third or fourth season when my 12 year old daughter sat down with me and watched an episode...she will watch anything to stay up later. She soon got hooked and even made me a collage and framed it for me as a Christmas present. Her favorite is saying "Fezz's are cool" I wish I could find one around here... <BR> <BR> Matt <BR> Mon, 16 Jan 2012 15:28:57 EST S6: The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe Hi! <BR> <BR> Kind of surprised no one posted this one yet. I rather liked it. While it didn't charm me anywhere near as much as A Christmas Carol did, it still knocked the socks of any of the previous Christmas specials. I want the Doctor to renovate my room! <BR> <BR> Spring Sun, 15 Jan 2012 15:34:31 EST Hello Sweeties! Hey all! I'm here in Missouri loving Doctor Who. SO lovely to meet you all!

I must admit I loved the DOCTOR/DONNA! Good Luck in your weight loss adventure! Allons Y! Geronimo! Sun, 1 Jan 2012 14:09:14 EST Really miss 10 I've been adapting to DW 11--I don't have much choice, and Rory makes it all worth it. However, lately I've been watching Season 4 again on my treadmill workout days...and I MISS DT. He just has such credibility. MS looks all of about 12, so it's hard to take him seriously. MS comes off as petulant. <BR> <BR> Plus, I adore Donna...her sarcasm and lack of infatuation with DW make her the perfect companion. MS and Amy seem like unattended 4 year olds in the toy aisle at Wal-Mart--obnoxio... Thu, 27 Oct 2011 22:25:47 EST Why is there a blue box in my office? Ok, I thought I would just share this as if anyone could appreciate this it would be the team members here. My youngest daughter is two and a few weeks ago the wife and said daughter came and got me at work to go to lunch. Of course I enjoyed having lunch with my girls and then the hard part of going back to work. I kissed both goodbye and my daughter kept pointing at the front seat and would tell me to sit. She got more and more upset as I closed the door and walked away. A few minutes ... Wed, 12 Oct 2011 15:10:32 EST S6: The Wedding of River Song Hmmm, beginning to feel a bit lonely in Dr. Whoville. lol <BR> <BR> I really liked this episode. I loved the unexpected explanation of the eye patch--a hard drive for the eye--woohoo. I also love that I was totally surprised by how they managed NOT to have actually killed DW back at the beginning. Why didn't I see that coming? Sheesh. For once I liked Amy--especially when she came back and killed the Silents and saved Rory. Yay, Rory! <BR> <BR> And Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchil... Sun, 2 Oct 2011 10:41:46 EST S6: Closing Time Great episode! I love Craig. Wish they hadn't felt the need to put the Amy/Rory cameo in. Can't we just have one episode without Amy? lol Craig and Rory would make awesome companions. <BR> <BR> Anyhow, I loved the teaser at the end also. I think it was cool that Craig gave DW the cowboy hat that we saw at the opening of the season. I didn't see the conspiracy between the one-eyed lady and the Silents coming. Nice twist! Sun, 25 Sep 2011 11:49:40 EST S6: The God Complex Wow, two great episodes in a row. Loved "The Girl Who Waited" and this one. I am in awe of how Moffat can take a terrifying creature and make us feel sympathy towards it even while still fearing what it represents. Of course, a lot of that comes from how well the Doctor (in all of his incarnations) connects to these creatures. <BR> <BR> Loved/hated the creepy Musak throughout the episode. Ick! There's always a clever resolution. <BR> <BR> I'm getting confused though. I thought the TA... Sun, 18 Sep 2011 15:22:34 EST S6: The Girl Who Waited I loved this episode. I thought the storyline was inventive and the sets were futuristic and simple, yet interesting. Also, I got a bit misty eyed toward the end. The concept was somewhat unnerving. Although, I kept thinking back to Roman Rory.. Of course Amy would turn into a nasty witch after 30 plus years, and Rory would remain sweet and loving for thousands of years. Of course. Wed, 14 Sep 2011 09:40:16 EST S6: Night Terrors Hi! Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by starting the discussion for this episode. <BR> <BR> It wasn't quite as creepy as I thought it was going to be--and I'm glad--lol. I loved seeing "Cromwell" from Outcasts as "Alex." As much as I like seeing actors of other BBCA shows, I sometimes think it's a rather small world (perhaps like Disney actors or something). <BR> <BR> I think I'm a victim of the whole "wibbly wobbly timey wimey" gap in season. I remember Amy dissolving in a puddle... Sun, 4 Sep 2011 15:43:54 EST S6: Let's Kill Hitler I'm surprised no one's talked about the new episode yet. Thoughts? Reactions? <BR> <BR> I'll admit, I was actually a tad bit disappointed. I finally got my boyfriend to watch Who with me and, for a newcomer, it was extremely confusing. Also, the whole Hitler plot-line was just dropped. Very disjointed episode. Mon, 29 Aug 2011 16:37:16 EST Hello fellow Whovians!

Anywho, I'm thrilled to have found you! I love Who! I have seen all of the new ones, and now I am working my way slowly through the old episodes on Netflix. I am actually rewatching the new series with my 5 y/o who is also a big fan. I am anxiously awaiting August 27th! <BR> <BR> I joined SparkPeople last summer and lost 40 pounds. I was doing pretty we... Tue, 16 Aug 2011 10:10:54 EST Who Knew? (of course, he did) I certainly didn't expect to find a Doctor Who group on Spark! I've been a Who fan since college and was a founding member of the Northern Virginia Doctor Who Viewing Society in 1999. I think the Doctor would agree, though: Spark is Cool! Mon, 15 Aug 2011 10:10:23 EST Fright Night? Yes/No/Maybe? Who all is going to see Fright Night when it comes out on the 19th of August just because David Tennant is in it? <BR> <BR> *shifty eyes* <BR> <BR> I know I am! Of course, it doesn't hurt that Colin Farrell plays a sexy vampire and looks completely awesome as an evil character. Or, that David Tennant will be walking around shirtless and in leather pants. ...I am such a fangirl. Mon, 1 Aug 2011 23:21:20 EST New Whooligan to the mix Well obviously I'm a fan of the TARDIS, and not just because it's the most amazing space ship in the universe, but because of what that wonderful little blue box represents. <BR> Inside is the capability to do pretty much everything you can think of. For a non descript police box it packs alot of umph. That's what I want to be: I want to be a modest individual, who packs a punch, and changes the lives of many people from the quality of what's inside me...not outside. <BR> <BR> My favo... Fri, 29 Jul 2011 16:02:12 EST Hamlet Last night I got to watch Hamlet with David Tennant as Hamlet and Patrick Stewart as the Ghost and King Claudius. <BR> <BR> I've been a Shakespeare fan for most of my life. I've seen a number of performances and renditions of Hamlet. But with David as Hamlet.....OH MY GOD!!!! He brought so much to the character that I've never seen there before! Hamlet it usually protrayed as a meloncholy, depressed guy that mopes around. David, however, brings layers of full, delightful madness! It wa... Tue, 26 Jul 2011 21:03:53 EST Fall Trailer I posted it on my blog just a bit ago and figured some of you might want to give it a look-see as well :) <BR> <BR> <link><BR>r-who-season-5-second-half.html </link> Mon, 25 Jul 2011 10:17:47 EST This is my new favorite team!! Hello, I am Allons-y10 and I am in love with Dr. Who. There is no better show out there!! Thanks to Cheeky1000 for directing me here. I know I will be here often! I like any Dr. but Number 10 is my fav. I do have a soft spot for Nine since he was my first introduction to Dr. Who. <BR> <BR> <BR> I will direct my hubby here: He is Bowtiesarekewl! Fri, 22 Jul 2011 14:12:48 EST Hi! Another "new" Whovian to the group. HI! I'm Penny. I've been in and out of Sparkpeople for a couple years, but am trying to get back into it properly again after being missing for about a year. But I'm definately new to the team. <BR> <BR> As for Doctor Who....I've been a fan for many, many years. My first introduction to Doctor Who was my little sister making me watch the middle of a Tom Baker with Sarah Jane Smith on Skarro with Davros episode when I was in 8th grade in the mid-80s. I thought it was the stupidist thing ... Tue, 12 Jul 2011 23:21:16 EST Hello! I'm so glad I found this group! I absolutely love everything about Doctor Who! Christopher Eccleston was my first Doctor and he holds a special place in my heart. I love all of the companions, but Donna Noble is by far my favorite and it's my goal to reach a weight that will allow me to be able to go as Donna for next year's Comic Con. <BR> <BR> Anyway... hello! I'm Artsy! I'm hoping that I'll be able to have a great time here with my fellow Whovians. Mon, 11 Jul 2011 21:07:10 EST Newbie Whobie (to the Team, anyhow) Bad rhyme, sorry. It just happened. Not sure what I was thinking. I've been watching the new Dr. Who since the middle of the first season with Chris Eccleston. How fantastic to find a SparkTeam devoted to both healthy living AND Dr. Who! Multo bene! <em>224</em> Tue, 21 Jun 2011 17:52:26 EST Fall Episode Schedule - Titles Could be Spoilers I don't generally consider titles spoilers, but in case anyone does, well... This has been released as a tentative schedule for fall airings. I'll update on this thread when I hear more: <BR> <BR> September 3, 2011 - Let's Kill Hitler <BR> September 10, 2011 - What Are Little Boys Made Of? <BR> September 12, 2011 - The Green Anchor <BR> September 24, 2011 - The God Complex <BR> October 01, 2011 - Season Finale part 1 <BR> October 08, 2011 - Season Finale part 2 (ALL titles TBC of course) Wed, 15 Jun 2011 09:28:00 EST S6: A Good Man Goes to War So I'm aware that a lot of people haven't seen this one yet since BBCA decided to miss a week because of Memorial Day. So I won't spoil anything. All I'm really going to say is- <BR> <BR> AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHASDFGHJFDSJHDJ<BR>HDSA!!! <BR> <BR> Ok. I'm good to go. Mon, 6 Jun 2011 10:39:47 EST Come Along, Pond! Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> Just letting you know you don't have to be as skinny as 10, have legs like Amy, or have Jackie Tyler's chest to be beautiful. If you wake up and you're not an Ood, you're doing fine! :) <BR> <BR> Love from those of us "living inside a bouncy castle... [with a] nice rear bumper", <BR> Lauren (my real name) Wed, 1 Jun 2011 21:22:38 EST S6: The Almost People This one was definitely faster paced than the first segment. There were still things that I felt were a bit confusing/poorly handled. The script could have used some finessing. That said, there were a lot of good things that I really enjoyed. Matt was adorable, and I enjoyed the Flesh!Doctor adjusting to the sudden acquisition of so many lifetimes all at once. I called the shoe switching early on, though that was made more fun for me by the fact that my husband didn't believe me. Ha! <BR> <B... Wed, 1 Jun 2011 09:35:25 EST If you could be a Doctor...idea needs help hey howdy there! <BR> <BR> some of you know me as a very recent convert to the interesting world of Doctor Who. I'd love to do some cosplay at some conventions and such, and I'd definitely love to dress up as the Doctor. <BR> <BR> One thing is I don't have a lot of money and I'll have to scrounge (though i'll totally splurge on the right sonic screwdriver when i can) as far as making a costume and whatnot. which doctor would you recommend for a chick to do, or if you did dress as the doct... Mon, 30 May 2011 18:20:46 EST I saw a Daleck yesterday! I was at Comicpalooza in Houston yesterday (and the whole weekend) and i just have to say "curses for not having my camera!) I got another doctor who t-shirt (had the best looking tardis on it that i saw, and matt smith) and was this close to getting a shirt that was I love london, with a daleck in the place of love (hee hee)--but i have a feeling the seller will be at ConJour in January and i'll get it then. <BR> <BR> But there was a guy sitting inside a daleck they built with a computer m... Mon, 30 May 2011 14:44:20 EST Hello Whovians! Hi all. My name is Kristy. I'm 31 & about 100 lbs over weight. I feel like such a failure & an embarrassment. I joined SP a couple of years ago & with the help I found here & in other places I had lost 70 lbs. I looked pretty good & felt great. I was confident & actually, for one of the first times ever, felt sexy & attractive. About a year & a half ago, I got a promotion (into a supervisory role) & changed from working the night shift to working the day shift. This job is not one I wanted bu... Tue, 24 May 2011 20:12:47 EST S6: The Rebel Flesh What did you guys think?? I was genuinely creeped out over this episode! Sun, 22 May 2011 16:27:27 EST Sylvester McCoy in the Hobbit I just heard that Sylvester McCoy has been cast as Radegast the Brown in the new Hobbit film. Even though I'm primarily a New Who girl, I'm totally geeking out that Who and LOTR are colliding as I'm also a die-hard Tolkien fan. :). Just had to share this news with you all. Wed, 18 May 2011 21:48:43 EST S6: The Doctor's Wife I was so scared that this would fall flat. Instead it was super crazy awesome. It was charming! And interesting! And cool! Idris was really interesting, Matt put in an absolutely superb performance... I was so happy to have loved it so dearly. <BR> <BR> What did you guys think? Mon, 16 May 2011 12:10:26 EST S6: The Curse of the Black Spot So I'm not a fan of the whole pirate plot (I've been over pirates for awhile now) but the subplot was wonderfully Who, which made me really enjoy the last twenty minutes or so of it. I love the acting between the core three. Sun, 8 May 2011 07:40:19 EST S6: Day of the Moon Um...did anyone else catch that ending..? Wed, 4 May 2011 07:19:16 EST S6: The Impossible Astronaut Did anyone see it? What did you guys think?? It aired on BBC America on April 23rd and there have been repeats of it throughout the weekend! Mon, 25 Apr 2011 11:41:39 EST R.I.P. To a Former Companion <link><BR>-who-elisabeth-sladen-dies/ </link> <BR> <BR> And now what, about the Sarah Jane Adventures? Tue, 19 Apr 2011 20:30:59 EST Music and DW So I was watching the video for "The Animal" by Disturbed, and in parts of it, the lead singer is done up with some kind of weird looking writing on his face and head. It reminded me of The Impossible Planet/Satan Pit. Anyone know if anyone in Disturbed is a DW fan? Or have any other weird music connections between a band they like and Doctor Who? <BR> <BR> I have one more. My local top 40 station has an intro for their morning show that uses a dance remix of the Doctor Who theme. I about sq... Sat, 9 Apr 2011 13:31:44 EST DW Book: The King's Dragon I just finished reading the Eleventh Doctor book The King's Dragon, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Much like the show itself, it's sort of just a step up from being a young adult read - quick, short, light. The writing isn't the most amazing ever (there was some repetition of phrasing that a better editor would have tweaked before it was published), it's definitely a fun adventure, and it's cool getting a new adventure between seasons. I have to say that I had fun with it and def... Wed, 30 Mar 2011 10:18:30 EST New season I can't wait until easter! So excited for the new season. I am going to be Amy Pond for Halloween (Hubby is going to be the 11th doctor) so I am looking forward to seeing her outfits this season to give me more to choose from. Did everybody see the two DW shorts where the TARDIS got stuck in the TARDIS? I should have thought to save and share the link. Sun, 27 Mar 2011 16:09:00 EST odd zombie question.. .something to ponder?... with traditional zombie lore (which i'd love to know the basis of someday), or with your own ideas, answer me this: <BR> <BR> If a life-long, devoted vegetarian or vegan became a zombie, would they still crave brains? Sun, 27 Mar 2011 02:21:41 EST FINALLY saw season 1--ALL of it! Oh wow, I had a fun last weekend at the ConJour, and i was at a doctor who panel, and they showed the first matt smith episode last saturday night. <BR> <BR> its official, i had to get some dvds. got season one in on thursday, finished it yesterday (in between school and volunteer work and all that). wow, me likey. now i know why everybody kept saying christopher eccleston was the one to start with for sure--it was fun. amazingly, i'd seen a few minutes of that first season 1 episode bef...

Check it out! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>1/03/09/tardis-watchers-new-doctor-who<BR>-returns-april-23-on-bbc-america/ </link> Sat, 12 Mar 2011 15:08:22 EST Awesome idea for a team! I'm so glad I found you guys! I've been a Dr Who fan since I was a little kid - which is a bit unusual since I'm in America! But I watched the Tom Baker episodes on PBS when I was little, and then met the previous Doctors by reading their adventures in books. I love the new series. There's something about watching Dr Who that just makes me happy, I feel like a kid again, hopeful and inspired. Thu, 10 Mar 2011 12:07:35 EST Your Favorite Sidekick This is hard for me to pick I really like Rose of course, but Amy Pond is awesome also. Tue, 22 Feb 2011 10:20:56 EST Hi My name is Luke. My wife and I get very little free time away from the kids, but when we do we usually end up watching Doctor Who. He is so positive and awesome. Tue, 22 Feb 2011 10:16:28 EST I'm so glad I found you! Yeah! Finally a SparkTeam that fits in with my BBC America obsession. <BR> <BR> So, I'm Michelle. I live in Omaha. And I love Dr. Who and Torchwood. Honestly, I am really new to the Dr. Who show (just really started watching it in December), but I have loved Torchwood for a while now. Most of my friends and family look at me weird when I bring up these shows, so I am glad I found people I can talk to about them. I am really excited! <BR> <BR> Fri, 4 Feb 2011 14:28:14 EST Geronimo! (what, the previous poster used 10 :P) Hi everyone. I'm a newb. <BR> <BR> Doctor Who, I must admit, is a big part of why I'm here on SP. Ever since I first got into DW in 2007, my Junior Year of college, my daydreams of traveling with the Doctor have always been interrupted by the idea that when we started running, I would have an asthma attack, stop, and get exterminated. Not a fun fantasy. And the truth is, if bad stuff goes down, the Doctor may not exist, but the need to run away (or toward) a threat will be real. I need to ge... Sun, 30 Jan 2011 14:21:21 EST Allons-y! Hey all, I've been watching Doctor Who for about 2 years now. My college roomie was obsessed with it and I finally got around to seeing what all the fuss was about. I watch it with my hubby and I have also gotten a few friends addicted as well. As for who is my favorite, I'm not sure if I love David Tennant or Matt Smith more, there's something special about each of them. :) Mon, 24 Jan 2011 21:38:54 EST Hello--complete Who novice here...don't hurt me... Hello there! <BR> <BR> I've heard about Doctor Who for just about forever, and I have a healthy respect for Moffat and Gatiss for the new series (I saw Sherlock and I'm madly in love--with Sherlock himself and the show and it extends to them) <BR> <BR> But this little obsession got me thinking about Doctor Who, and everybody tells me its something I would totally like. Unfortunately, I don't have money to buy dvds, or the ability to rent or anything (completely broke at this point, will be... Tue, 18 Jan 2011 19:50:34 EST Hey! I'm brand new to sparkpeople and am happy to see a Doctor Who group! I've been watching the show for about 3 years now. The first episode I watched was "Tooth and Claw" and I had never even heard of the good Doctor before. I was blown away that one show could combine a werewolf, time travel, and Queen Victoria! It's nice to see such like minded people so hello to you all!! Sun, 16 Jan 2011 04:12:18 EST 2011 Motivations No resolutions. Heavens no! But we all have little things that we find most motivating. So what's the thing that's spurring you on? Getting married? Getting healthy? What's your thing? <BR> <BR> Personally, I want to cosplay as Amy Pond from Doctor Who at A-Kon (a Dallas anime convention) this year. I'm doing it either way, but I know I'll feel more confident if I'm a bit healthier and a bit lighter when I head in. Mon, 3 Jan 2011 16:16:11 EST Angels Have you guys seen this? <BR><BR>nk-weeping-angel-costume-dialup-beware<BR>-49264/ Mon, 13 Dec 2010 13:23:48 EST New Hi I am new to the team. I started watching DW in July, my first episode being "The time of Angels" Well hubby and I got hooked. We started watching season 5, then went back and found the earliest episodes of 5. Then borrowed the rest from a friend. We just started watching season 4 and plan to chase down torchwood and the old DW after. <BR> <BR> We even decided to Who it up for halloween next year. I plan to be Amy Pond, hubby want to be DW #11, with coworkers going as Rose and DW#10 Sat, 11 Dec 2010 19:37:43 EST Christmas Special 2010 The Christmas Special this year will be Who's take on A Christmas Carol and will be called - you guessed it! - A Christmas Carol. Michael Gambon (best known as the replacement Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies) will be guest starring. <BR> <BR> Can't wait! Mon, 15 Nov 2010 13:08:03 EST Another Whovian Hi! <BR> <BR> I was on SparkPeople a while ago and somehow, it never occurred to me to try to find other Doctor Who fans here. Anyway. I'm a little bit crazy about the show. The first episode I saw was "The Runaway Bride" on PBS, and then, of course, I had to go back and find out who this "Rose" person was and what happened to her and I've been hooked ever since. Through the magic of Netflix, I've seen a bunch of Baker, Pertwee, and Hartnell episodes, too, including the very first one. ... Thu, 14 Oct 2010 16:00:27 EST Doctor Who Halloween Costumes? Hey, have any of you guys dressed up as something from doctor who for halloween? or are you planning to? This is my first halloween as a major Who junkie, so I'm excited to be working on a TARDIS outfit :) <BR> Come on, any daleks out there? Fri, 8 Oct 2010 19:49:29 EST Hey all! Hi! I've been watching Doctor Who since I was a kid, and I'm super excited to find others to geek about about it with! And, yeah, to talk about weight lose. That too :) Wed, 29 Sep 2010 00:02:30 EST Fanmade Trailer for 2010 Christmas Special You guys, I watched this and thought it was the real thing. And I wanted to see the special because of this trailer, wow. Check it out. It does have spoilers though because of a certain guest star who will be in the special: <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Tue, 31 Aug 2010 07:18:07 EST Hello! I'm so excited to see that there is a group for Dr. Who (and Torchwood!). <BR> <BR> I became a fan during the second season of the new series (my fiance is a huge Dr. Who fan and has been for a long time). Now I can't get enough (though the most recent season has been difficult to get because I no longer have BBC America!) <BR> <BR> It is nice to find a place where I can combine two of my interests: getting healthy and The Doctor! Fri, 27 Aug 2010 14:00:15 EST Other Great Shows for Who Fans Since it came up in another thread, what shows are out there that you think are PERFECT for Who fans? <BR> <BR> I'll throw my hat in and suggest Chuck (geek humor + spy stuff = win) to get the ball rolling. Can't wait for the new season! Thu, 26 Aug 2010 11:42:57 EST Hello! Hi all, I just joined two days ago and figured I'd better introduce myself. :) My name is Bobbie and I live in Washington state. I love it here! A friend of mine suggested I become a member of this site and since she's the same person who insisted I start watching Doctor Who (which I am now obsessed with), I figured I could trust her on this too. Haha! I am currently in the middle of series three and love every minute of it. I think Ten is my favorite doctor, though really I've only experienc... Fri, 20 Aug 2010 03:55:37 EST Hello, I'm the Doctor. Ha, not. Obviously. But I've always wanted to say that. :) <BR> <BR> Hi everyone, I'm Gina, I've been on SP for a couple of weeks now and I loves me some Who! I absolutely adore 10. And 9. And 11. (But especially 10). So happy to have found you all! Thu, 12 Aug 2010 20:48:25 EST S5: The Big Bang I saw this episode the day after it aired in the UK. In my opinion, it was awesome then and it's still awesome after several viewings, lol! <BR> <BR> What did you guys think?? Sun, 25 Jul 2010 18:38:23 EST S5: The Pandorica Opens Ok, so who saw the twist at the end coming? LOL! Series finale tonight on BBCA, yaaaaaaaaaaaay! Sat, 24 Jul 2010 13:04:13 EST Leverage DR WHO reference Okay I don't know if any of you watch Leverage I've only just started and they're playing an episode a day over here in the UK, with the 2nd season starting on Weds... anyway I was watching the other day and Elliot was asking Nate what fake passports he had, his reply 'Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Tom Baker'. I love in jokes/references on shows. So YAY to the Leverage writers! Fri, 23 Jul 2010 04:54:36 EST Con Photos Just as an FYI, I posted 3 photos from a recent con I attended Shoreleave 2010)in my photos in my Spark Page. <BR> <BR> Not the most Who friendly con I have ever attended, but I had a great time reconnecting with people I see once a year. Thu, 22 Jul 2010 10:08:54 EST RUDE AND NOT GINGER are two things you could also probably say about me! <BR> <BR> I'm Lindsay. I live in Brooklyn, NY and am a huge Ten fan. <BR> <BR> I am very excited to be able to share in my new health journey with other Whovians! Sat, 17 Jul 2010 19:23:53 EST *Insert Clever Doctor Who Pun Here* Sorry, guys way too tired to think of something clever for my topic title! I'll do better next time, I promise! <BR> <BR> Anyway, wanted to say Hi to everyone. One of the things I like about SparkPeople is that a group like this exists! How fun! I've been a Doctor Who fan a LONG time. I got hooked on the PBS broadcasts of the Tom Baker years when I was 7 and I still love it to this day! Thu, 15 Jul 2010 23:44:17 EST S5: The Lodger Ok what did you guys honestly think about this ep? Tue, 13 Jul 2010 15:14:33 EST Team Ecclesnut <BR> <BR> Hope its ok if I post this - Kasterborous, the online DW (etc) fan magazine, wrote an article about my groups fundraising efforts. We are a fanpage for Christopher Eccleston and we're trying to get this out to as many DW/Chris fans as we can! <BR> <BR> Ruth x <link><BR>esnuts-making-a-difference/ </link> Fri, 9 Jul 2010 10:55:45 EST Your favourite companion My question is who is your favourite companion. Here in the UK there was some prejudice towards Catherine Tate (Donna), as she was a sketch comedienne with her own show, but I found her brilliant especially in the dramatic scenes. I think Billie Piper (Rose) caught some flack (previously being a teen pop sensation) but I think her critics were silenced after the first episode (I know I was! lol) And the lovely Freema Aygeman (Martha) got stick because well... she wasn't Rose! And Karen Gil... Fri, 9 Jul 2010 04:58:50 EST New Companion! Hiya, I'm Mel, I've just joined far too many teams and there are more I want to join! But it's all dependent on my mood, Harry Potter, Twilight, Rocky Horror, Psych and now The Doctor, it'll be Glee next. Love all the new Dr Who's, especially episodes like 'The Empty Child' I love it when everybody gets to live! X M Thu, 8 Jul 2010 04:57:59 EST Introducing Myself Hurrah! (as Russell T Davies would say) I found a group of Whovians! <BR> <BR> I am back here at Sparkpeople (after leaving for a bit)for some support, and to make use of the resources to help me count carbs etc for my diabetes. <BR> <BR> I am also a HUGE Doctor Who fan, since the Tom Baker/Peter Davison years (but I actually think the 'New' Who has improved on the original while keeping its spirit) <BR> <BR> I am also pretty much one of the biggest fans of Christopher Eccleston (Ninth Doc... Sat, 3 Jul 2010 14:23:01 EST EXTERMINATE (the weight) please just read that in as histrionic a voice as you possibly can and I'll try to never make another Dalek pun again. <BR> <BR> Today has been my day of inadvertently finding sci-fi related teams. Hurray. I'm just starting season three, and, may I say that if I were a boy I would want to be DT. CANNOT get enough of this show! <BR> <BR> So, yay, hello, excited to be here! <BR> x May <BR> Thu, 10 Jun 2010 20:17:16 EST S5: Vincent and the Doctor I just finished watching the 10th episode for this season. All I will say is, it is, in my opinion, the best episode that I have ever seen and the most moving. Also, as a side note have the tissues ready! <BR> <BR> In case you're wondering, yes, I do live in the US, but I watch the episodes online. Therefore I can watch them as soon as they become available to our UK friends. <BR> <BR> Emily in NC Sun, 6 Jun 2010 23:26:07 EST Which Doctor Who are you ? (facebook application) Well, took the which Doctor Who are you application on Facebook and apparently I am the 5th Doctor (Peter Davison)and it really does fit. funny how those work sometimes. <BR> <BR> <em>36</em> Thu, 3 Jun 2010 16:38:37 EST River Song cosplay outfit If anyone wants to see it (sorry for the bad photo it was the best I could do with a small camera and no tripod) check out my Sparkpage. The accessories are with the general ohotos. <BR> <BR> I can't wait to wear it at the convention I am going to in July...for the 5 people who will probably get it. Thu, 27 May 2010 11:14:18 EST S5: Vampires in Venice Hey all - where did everybody go? And what did you think of Vampires in Venice? <BR> <BR> It wasn't my favorite episode ever, but I liked it. I think anything would be judged more harshly after the last 2-parter. <BR> <BR> Actually, one part I really liked was the build-up of Rory's character. He's confused and overwhelmed but trying really hard to stand on his own two feet and to protect Amy. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to Amy's Choice next week - the preview looks interesting. Sun, 23 May 2010 18:13:18 EST S5: The Time of Angels Ooooo, great start to a two parter. I admit that I'm not one of the folks who has a problem with River Song. I find her interesting. I think there's potential there. <BR> <BR> And, yes, I will admit that Stephen perhaps overuses certain devices at times considering how strongly things like the dead talking harken back to other eps. At the same time? The devices work. I was genuinely caught off guard by Bob admitting to being dead. I still find the angels creepy. I wanna know what happens! <B... Mon, 10 May 2010 12:28:36 EST S5: Victory of the Daleks So what did you guys think?? Mon, 3 May 2010 14:41:54 EST S5: The Beast Below Just watched it! I love that compassion is the solution! Sat, 24 Apr 2010 22:58:06 EST Hello! I've actually been a member of the group for a while but I haven't participated. However, I've been slacking on my diet for a while and I think participating in more stuff on here will hopefully keep me more active! I've already lost about half of the weight I want to lose, but I still have a long way to go. <BR> <BR> I decided to start watching Doctor who just on a whim a few years ago. I had seen a few episodes on syfy (then sci-fi) and decided to check the actual series out. I've been ho... Thu, 8 Apr 2010 11:20:11 EST Hi all! I am new to the team and fairly new to Dr. Who. <BR> An ex-boyfriend of mine was obsessed with the old series and its practically all I heard about. I watched a few episodes, liked them enough but didn't really feel the need to keep watching beyond what he showed me. <BR> <BR> Then I saw the revived Dr. Who and fell completely in love with the series (that and Torchwood). I am still only at the very beginning of the 4th season, but loving every episode I see. Great show with a lot of great... Tue, 30 Mar 2010 10:03:48 EST Hi! I'm home! I just thought about looking for a team with the word "Doctor" in it...and apparently, there's a team for all of my goofy quirks. Huh, whodda thunk? <BR> I've been a Whovian since New Who came on and although I was shocked to see Barty Crouch Jr. (I'm also an HP fan) as the new Dr, I'd have to say DT was my fav. I'm certainly not into this new guy yet. His character was such a dork on the episode of SD of a LCG that I'll have to consciously give him a chance...but the Who stories are so g...

There will be a daylong Doctor Who marathon on 17 April <BR> before the premiere of "The Eleventh Hour". At 8PM, 11PM, 2AM Eastern (5PM, <BR> 8PM, 11PM Pacific), BBC America has a special called "Who Is The Doctor?" <BR> promising an "all-access look inside the universe of the world's biggest, <BR> most successful sci-fi television program".

With the TARDIS wrecked, and the sonic screwdriver destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world - and only Amy Pon... Sun, 14 Mar 2010 15:17:27 EST Favorite Scene or Quote OK. I see you all have the episode you love or hate, but how about a scene or quote that makes you laugh. <BR> <BR> My favorite is the scene from the Unicorn and the Wasp. Hate the rest of it but love this scene where the Doctor is poisoned. As the Doctor gives instructions or pantomimes, I think it has hilarious results. I need something salty. What's that. Salt. That's too salty! Oh good grief that's too salty. (Agatha Christy gives him pickles? instead) And then my favorite quote is Doct... Tue, 2 Mar 2010 14:44:16 EST Season 5 Ok I am trying to keep up with Doctor Who but trying to find out the next season, hopefully in the right order. <BR> <BR> 1) The Next Doctor <BR> 2) Planet of the Dead <BR> 3) Water on Mars <BR> 4) End of Time Part 1 & 2 <BR> <BR> Do I have the order right? <BR> Netflix is giving us the videos piece by piece as it comes out, but there are so many doctor whos you have to fumble through to make sure it's the right season. Tue, 2 Mar 2010 12:22:18 EST Valentine's Day Gifts! The bf got me my very own sonic screwdriver, LOL! It actually has the blue light and makes the buzzing sound but it's also a pen with regular ink and invisible ink. And also a shirt that reads, "You never forget your first doctor." :) Wed, 17 Feb 2010 07:41:40 EST Team Olympics Team, I propose a Team Olympics. I created a personal Olympics that was Sparked by another SP member. She created a way to personally challenge yourself in relation to the 2010 Olympics.

It's time for me to get back in the saddle exercising, and I'd love for y'all to join me :D Fri, 29 Jan 2010 09:10:51 EST Favorite Exercises? I'm in a serious exercise slump. I love my Wii, I enjoy doing yoga, I even admit to rockin' some Richard Simmons sometimes, but I need something different to get me back on track. So I'm checking into what other people's favorites are. What do you guys do for exercise that you really, genuinely enjoy?

XD Mon, 16 Nov 2009 14:49:49 EST A CD player in the TARDIS? So, here's a general question for the New Who Team: <BR> Today I started to assemble a playlist of all my upbeat, motivational songs and I started wondering about what others are listening to. What song or songs get you excited to walk faster, run farther, try harder? For instance, when I hear "A Little Respect" by Erasure I start dancing in the street while I walk, and I don't care who's looking. How about you? What gets you rocking out while you're working out? Fri, 13 Nov 2009 18:26:57 EST Wipes the dust away Allons-y, <BR> Lets get this place hopping. Maybe the Doctor will dance for us. <BR> Hi I've been at Sparks 3 weeks and I'm loving how it works. <BR> Maybe we can liven up this place a little. <BR> <BR> <em>188</em> Fri, 13 Nov 2009 09:41:27 EST Waters of Mars Air Dates Courtesy of my Co-Mod on the NewWho mailing list on Yahoogroups: <BR> <BR> David Tennant confirmed on GMTV that the next Doctor Who Special "The Waters of <BR> Mars" will be shown on 15th Nov at 7.00 pm <BR> <BR> -------- <BR> <BR> Following the release of the UK transmission date, BBC America has confirmed The <BR> Waters of Mars will air in the US on Saturday December 19 at 9:00pm ET/PT. <BR> <BR> Tennant's final two stories will then air over the holiday season as a two-part <BR> speci...

I'm partial to the original run, but New Who is still pretty great. <BR> I've been trying to convince my wife to let me build a TARDIS for the backyard, but she's not exactly thrilled with that idea. Hell, she thought I was crazy for the Doctor Who scarves I've knitted :) Sun, 31 May 2009 13:12:01 EST Fourth Series Finales S <BR> P <BR> O <BR> I <BR> L <BR> E <BR> R <BR> S <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Did anyone else hear the rumor that David Tennant is heading back to do some last minute filming with Billie Piper?

Thu, 14 May 2009 09:39:56 EST Some Videos I don't know about you guys but I have moments of wanting to find videos of DW when I go to youtube. I'm sure a lot of you, if you're as big a fan as I am, have seen Seduff's stuff but if not you guys should check it out: <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> My faves from her happen to be Spinnin and Grinnin (it makes me smile some mornings more than my coffee) and Dark Doctor. Really good stuff there. If anyone knows of any other really good vids let me know on here so I ... Wed, 6 May 2009 09:08:24 EST newbie Hi all, <BR> <BR> I was so excited to find a Doctor Who team. I started watching the new Who when it first came out. I was intrigued and began to watch the older series, starting with the first Doctor. <BR> <BR> I'm only at the start of the Tom Baker years (I realized he was "that guy with the scarf" who was on PBS when I was in elementary school). <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Fri, 1 May 2009 09:37:21 EST Inspiration? I posted the other day in my blog about the fact that things like watching America's Next Top Model can be very inspiring to me. Dorky, yes, but it works. Inspiration is kind of nebulous. Sometimes a song will make me want to get fit and do right, sometimes talking to somebody, sometimes seeing a nice dress... <BR> <BR> What are your sources of inspiration? Thu, 30 Apr 2009 17:21:12 EST Rumors Been a bit quiet in here lately.. <BR> <BR> Spoilers! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Read up online that Gillian Anderson might be portraying the Rani in the new series of Who when it comes back for Season 5 with the New Doctor. Whatcha guys think? I know nothing about the Rani except that she's a Time Lady but I love Gillian Anderson and would love to see her on my Who! :) Thu, 23 Apr 2009 21:46:31 EST Thought this was cute Came across this from my hubby. <BR> <BR> It is I think the gal said on her blog a Supernova convention? <BR> <BR> Anyway these gals came up with a cute idea and went with it. I am thinking maybe this might be a fun idea for a Halloween costume <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Fri, 10 Apr 2009 12:20:32 EST Episodes You Hate Or, if you don't hate any, what episodes did you dislike? What worked and what didn't? Let's face it, we all have episodes that we love less than others, so this is the place to tell us all about it :) Fri, 27 Mar 2009 11:26:12 EST Hello Oh my inner Donna is freaking out right now as there is a Who spark group. <BR> <BR> Okay, now that I have calmed down here we go. I am a huge Who fan, huge as in I own two action figures, a t-shirt baring one of my favorite quotes, added Cardiff to my England summer trip, and of course all four seasons of Who. <BR> <BR> I am working on losing 30 lbs this year while also balancing my new career as a high school English teacher. <BR> <BR> Anyway as I am new Who lovin' gal ha... Thu, 12 Mar 2009 22:19:32 EST Hello from Saskatchewan! I'm thrilled to find this team, since I love watching Doctor Who, and don't have anyone I can talk to about it! I keep trying to drag my sister into the fandom. I made her watch The Unicorn and The Wasp on Christmas day, since she's an Agatha Christie fan. Her comment was that it was good, except for the science fiction part. Argh!! Sun, 8 Mar 2009 16:29:52 EST Hey! I'm pretty new to Spark, and have been logging in on my own for a couple of weeks. I'm delighted to find a Doctor Who team. I watch while I use a step machine at home, and it definitely keeps me motivated. Woo-WHO! Wed, 4 Mar 2009 16:51:35 EST TARDIS Interior. Soooooo it's been reported that the interior of the TARDIS is being changed to go along with the New Doctor when he takes over in 2010. In a quick aside to that...tyvm DT for leaving me sobbing in the corner of my room. Lol. Anyone else read that? About the TARDIS interior? Tue, 3 Mar 2009 12:58:19 EST BBCA vs. SciFi When you guys watch DW eps, do you catch them on SciFi or on BBCA? This is really for US fans, now that I think about it since I'm sure UK fans just regularly receive it, lol. I'm just wondering if I'm the only person to download eps as soon as they premiere in the UK.

Doctor Who!?! Hello All! I was just putting in things I like into the search part of the search for teams, but never imagined there would be a Doctor Who team! It makes my day :) I'm from a town in PA called Mars, believe it or not and I am brand new to SP. I love it so far and love to watch Dr. who as I work out! Fri, 13 Feb 2009 23:03:36 EST Did anyone else notice what the did to epsodie I watch Journeys end last night and caught it about half way threw but did anyone else notice just how much they cut out? It was freaky!! You didn't even get to see the kiss between the doc and rose What's up with that?! I couldn't believe they caught it off and then to cut it off after the doctor drop off Donna, they didnt even show half of the conversation he had with her grandfather. I thought it made a crappy epsodie. Sun, 8 Feb 2009 21:09:32 EST cool dw stuff to spend money on when I shouldn't I found TONS of DW stuff at (Hope this hasn't been already posted!) I'm trying to restrain myself from going on a shopping spree!! Here's the t-shirts but there's other stuff too. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Sun, 8 Feb 2009 10:16:00 EST Hello from Brooklyn :) I just joined sparkpeople earlier this week but as I was looking through the site I noticed there was a sparkteam for Doctor Who (the new series) and completely lost my mind screaming. So um, hi. :) Fri, 6 Feb 2009 15:21:25 EST S4: Turn Left I have to say I really enjoyed this episode. I didn't at first, I thought it was a little pandering to the fans in the beginning, till after the nuclear explosion and the Italian family is shipped out. <BR> <BR> I'm watching it for the second time tonight, and I have to say that the scene where the Italian family gets bussed away... it still make me cry. Wilf knows exactly what's happening and is powerless to stop it, and it's killing him. Tue, 27 Jan 2009 18:27:13 EST Hi! I'm new! Hi. I am a 26 year old master's student and an avid Doctor Who and Torchwood fan! I'm looking to start a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight. Tue, 27 Jan 2009 14:41:28 EST This coming Monday the 2nd of Feb Scifi will be doing another marathon of doctor who starting at 8am. Hope you enjoy it as much as i do.

I cant wait!! Fri, 23 Jan 2009 09:39:27 EST S4: Planet of the Ood A good, solid episode. Honestly, I think this would've gotten a darn <BR> near perfect score from me if you took away the guy-turning-into-an- <BR> Ood scene. That was a bit much, a bit silly in the midst of an <BR> otherwise well-written and well played episode. <BR> <BR> I'm really loving Donna. She's strong enough to stand up to the Doctor <BR> personality-wise. She's fun. I'm really enjoying her. <BR> <BR> It was interesting seeing the Ood back and even if the "song" was a <BR> bit of a... Wed, 21 Jan 2009 14:00:57 EST Ten Minutes a Day Don't forget to exercise for ten minutes at least once every day! Doesn't look like many of us are keeping up with that goal ;) It's not so bad, really. Just walk or jog in place in front of the TV for ten minutes or step up and down on your stairs or dance like a lunatic to some music you enjoy. hehe Wed, 21 Jan 2009 10:14:22 EST Filming Begins... According to my co-mod on the NewWho mailing list ( <link> </link> ), Doctor Who is officially filming again. Still no word on the new companion, but it's progress! :) Wed, 21 Jan 2009 10:12:30 EST Hello Again From NJ Just wanted to say Hi and Introduce my self another Dr Who fan from NJ Tue, 20 Jan 2009 13:08:59 EST Hello from New Jersey Hi! <BR> <BR> Just wanted to say hi. <BR> <BR> As my name suggests I like scifi (TV mostly). These days it centers around Doctor Who, BSG, Fringe, Chuck. <BR> <BR> I am a member of 2 Doctor Who/SciFi Clubs (US Branch of Unit out of Massachusetts and Prydonians of Princeton) and I usually hit a convention a few times a year (Shoreleave and NEFE). <BR> <BR> Looking forward to getting to know you! <BR> Mon, 19 Jan 2009 17:59:01 EST Rough Patch So yesterday, I had a very rough patch. I didn't want to do anything, I wanted to give up, I wanted to just say "forget it"... and thanks to the support of folks here, I didn't. Just a few nice words and I felt like I could push through it. <BR> <BR> We all have those days (weeks, months...), so what picks you up when you're wallowing in your own misery and just don't want to? Thu, 15 Jan 2009 08:52:25 EST S4: Fires of Pompeii This was a good one. It was interesting, an unusual setting for them despite <BR> being on Earth... good times. I give high props to to the make-up and effects on <BR> this one as well. The stone priestess looked really creepy and wonderful. <BR> <BR> While this wasn't the most stellar episode of the series, it was solid and <BR> entertaining, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In a bit of a rush, so I can't think <BR> of more to say than that, but it was good times. If the rest of season 4 keeps ... Wed, 7 Jan 2009 10:09:50 EST Hi from Indiana I used to watch Dr Who when I was little with my father during the Tom Baker days :) Then started watching again with the new series. I loved C.E. as the Doctor, but D.T. has grown on me. <BR> <BR> Oh and if any of you have never seen Planet Nerd: Dr. Who's Assistant song... it just is wonderful I think you will get a kick out of it. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> (no worries nothing vulgar or naughty) Tue, 6 Jan 2009 02:23:15 EST New member Howdy Who fans, <BR> <BR> My hubby and I are big Doctor Who fans (and our son is getting that way). We are planning on a trip to England in 2012 for our 16th anniversary (after the olympics though) and plan to spend a few days in Cardiff. We are fans of the 9th and 10th doctor, as well as the earlier ones as we slowly get around to watching those episodes. I got hooked on Doctor Who from a fanfiction story that was a crossover with an anime called Fushigi Yuugi and the 8th doctor. She ha... Mon, 5 Jan 2009 23:11:48 EST The Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith... he's interesting looking, but I'll confess here and new that I'm a bit worried about him being so young. He's my age! I certainly don't feel wise enough to be a Doctor ;) <BR> <BR> That said, I do trust Stephen Moffat, so I'm hoping it's for the best. Have any of you ladies and gents seen him in anything previously? Mon, 5 Jan 2009 13:57:47 EST S5-X1: The Next Doctor I can't believe I'm the one to start this thread! So what did other people think? <BR> <BR> I'm going to miss Tennant a lot... Mon, 5 Jan 2009 13:01:08 EST Inactivity I just wanted to apologize for not being around a great deal. I've had not much online time lately, but I'm going to try to get things more in order and jump in on the action again come January. In the meantime, don't hesitate to post, to start challenges... to just generally live it up! heheh Wed, 10 Dec 2008 10:29:33 EST Doctor Who fan in the US Hello! I'm a huge doctor who fan who, so far, has only seen the new series. <BR> <BR> I lived in the UK just before Doctor Who came back, and managed to miss it after I moved back to the States. I watched series 1 on Netflix this summer while stuck on the couch due to a knee injury and fell in love instantly! I've since caught up, now own series 4 on DVD and am eagerly awaiting the next Christmas Special. Thu, 4 Dec 2008 21:24:07 EST Hello! So, I'm a big fan of New Doctor Who and I thought to myself, I wonder if there are others. And there ARE! I'm so happy. I'm Taylor and I'm happy to meet you all. Thu, 20 Nov 2008 14:42:13 EST hey there! So, as I was at the bookstore today picking up the current Doctor Who and Torchwood magazines, I finally realized I hadn't checked to see if there were any fan teams. So, here I am! <BR> <BR> I grew up in a sci-fi household. Watched lots of stuff, yet when my dad and sis were watching Dr. Who, I couldn't get into it. Then I married a Dr. fan, and still didn't get it. Then, I saw Christopher Eccelston as the Doctor, and suddenly, I got it! Now I am way in, love Torchwood, and am realizin... Sun, 16 Nov 2008 05:39:40 EST HI HI all, <BR> Nice to find you guys! Sat, 15 Nov 2008 09:50:50 EST Character/Item you'd like to see again? Who/What are some characters or items you'd like to see again on Doctor Who? Regulars or even just cameos. <BR> <BR> A few for me: <BR> The Brigadier <BR> K-9 (as a regular companion again) <BR> Betsy (his car) <BR> Cameo role for Tegan Jovanka Fri, 7 Nov 2008 10:34:17 EST David Tennant [SPOILER] David Tennant announced that the specials filming in 2009 will be his last stint as the Doctor. <BR> <BR> I'm honestly not too upset since I never connected completely with Ten, so I'm mostly just curious to see what's up next for the show with a new Doctor, new Companion, and a new show head! Thu, 30 Oct 2008 11:27:17 EST New season? I was watching BBC America last night and saw an ad for a new Dr. Who season. Has anyone seen this? I don't know if this is for the last season they showed on Sci-Fi channel, or an actual new season. Sun, 19 Oct 2008 18:33:17 EST FANTASTIC! Can i just say I love you Beth for making this page! I love the doctor and I love that I can incorporate my love of the show into my love of Doctor Who! <BR> Let me start by saying: I'm Lauren and I'm 20 years old. I weigh 175 lbs. and ... I hate my body right now! I love to move around and I used to be a dancer and I SO miss being an agile little waif like in high school! Now I know that i'm not going to be exactly the same, I gained a few curves in good places that I'm determined to keep, ... Wed, 8 Oct 2008 01:38:19 EST S3: Last of the Time Lords This one was a bit mixed for me too... though it wasn't by any means totally <BR> useless. I liked Martha here. Her crush on the Doctor gets a bit wearing at <BR> times, but the close-out was handled gracefully, I think, and in keeping with <BR> her character. <BR> <BR> Jack... why was he even in these eps? I love him. I'm ALWAYS thrilled to see <BR> him. But aside from his brief exchange with the Doctor in Utopia and the use of <BR> his wristband, he was pretty wasted. With all the love and... Mon, 6 Oct 2008 12:23:37 EST S3: The Sound of Drums It feels almost like someone different wrote the last fifteen minutes of this <BR> one. Up until then, it felt like a pretty standard Who adventure with Jack mixed <BR> in for good measure (yay!) and a little mythos about Gallifrey to boot. Since I <BR> come from not really knowing anything about old Who, anything's new to me... <BR> though I did recognize the cowl-y robe things from a picture I've seen of <BR> Pertwee, I believe? Anyway, I was enjoying the episode. <BR> <BR> Then it started... Mon, 6 Oct 2008 12:23:12 EST Dr Who on CBC I know this is only good for some of us but I just saw an ad for Dr Who starting on the Canadian TV station CBC September 19th. If there is no season 9 is this repeats?? Sun, 7 Sep 2008 17:38:42 EST S3: Utopia I think I'm biased. I really enjoyed the heck out of this one, but when I look back over the episode, I have trouble figuring out why in terms of the story. The story was kind of a throw-away, let's face it. It was a set-up and not much else. <BR> <BR> But... Captain Jack. ::swoon:: And Derek Jacobi! I've been a little in love with him since I first saw I, Claudius years ago. Somehow I think this was the one plot point that missed me in all the spoilers I've seen. I didn't know that he was t... Sun, 7 Sep 2008 00:41:49 EST S3: Blink This is the best I've seen in a loooong time. I think the thing that draws me to Stephen Moffat's episodes is a strong sense of humanity. This was a brilliant DW adventure, and it didn't even really involve the Doctor. And it didn't matter. The fact was the even Billy, who had... what? Three scenes? was so likeably and strongly written and played that I cared about him. I actually got emotionally involved in all the tiny vignettes of life and love in the short space of time given to us. <BR>... Sun, 31 Aug 2008 00:46:03 EST Torchwood Radio Show? I've heard there is going to be a Torchwood episode on the radio, in the UK of course. September 10th. Does anyone know how to get a copy of this when it is released? It is supposed to take place after Season 2 finale. Tue, 12 Aug 2008 22:44:00 EST S3: Human Nature/The Family of Blood Wow! Okay, now I'm impressed. Those are probably the best two eps I've seen on <BR> the show since season one. They're not quite up there with Empty Child/The <BR> Doctor Dances... but they're damned good. I really am pleased. <BR> <BR> The supporting cast was all strong, though I give particular props to the nicely <BR> creepy person playing the son in the Family of Blood - that could've been goofy <BR> pretty easily, but he did an excellent job. <BR> <BR> I also have to say that this is e... Mon, 4 Aug 2008 09:29:31 EST S3: 42 I had to think about this one for awhile before writing the review. Overall, I <BR> didn't hate it. However, since I've recently come to realize that I'm pretty <BR> dissatisfied with every single episode being set either on earth, a planet that <BR> looks JUST LIKE Earth, or a space station/ship... well, the timing was bad. lol <BR> <BR> The good parts? The possessed crew members were nicely creepy and intense. "Burn <BR> with me..." Very nice. I also liked the bit players. Good casting, we... Mon, 4 Aug 2008 09:28:51 EST S3: The Infinite Quest The bad thing about this one: The shaky animation. Great on inanimate objects, pretty butt ugly on anything alive. But it's a pretty minor quibble. <BR> <BR> This was a really strong story. Very epic feel. Chad had described it to me as having a Star Wars vibe, and I can definitely see it. And that's where this one excelled for me: the feel, the story, the dialogue. It was tight in everything but the look, honestly. I wish they'd sprung for doing this one live action, expensive as that would... Tue, 22 Jul 2008 22:13:29 EST S3: The Lazurus Experiment It was okay. For me this one was just sort of generic and alright. Nothing about it gripped me especially. I liked Martha - she's a fun companion and nicely capable. <BR> <BR> The tension with her family seemed a little abrupt. One minute her mom's surprised Martha's happy to see her, the next she's ranting about how she's "changed." Sloppy writing to me. Intrigued to see who the hell it is that's talking smack about the Doctor. Should that name in her mom's message have meant something to ... Wed, 16 Jul 2008 10:48:56 EST S3: Daleks in Manhattan/ /Evolution of the Daleks I'm not sure about these. At all. I rated them "good" in the poll, I think, because the basic story was alright. I think it could've been a single episode. I think some of the side stories could've been done away with. Pick Hooverville OR the lady and her pig man. Having both... it was too much for me somehow. It just didn't all gel like I would've liked. It felt pieced together somehow. <BR> <BR> I normally like dalek eps, and this one had some interesting points, but overall it just didn't... Sun, 29 Jun 2008 22:09:04 EST S3: Gridlock I really, really liked this one. Soooo much more interesting than the S2 episode in the same setting. <BR> <BR> It was dark without being hopeless or cliche, the setting was interesting, and it was a really nice tie in to both the previous seasons. I think the real showpiece here was the setting and the bit players rather than the Doctor or Martha. It was nice that they sat down at the end and really talked, but that didn't really matter as much for me. <BR> <BR> I got off on the little vi... Sun, 29 Jun 2008 21:57:42 EST S3: The Shakespeare Code This was a fun one! First off? If Shakespeare had been half as cute as the actor who played him, I might've enjoyed some of those plays more ;) <BR> <BR> In all seriousness, though, it was a good episode. Good tone, good action, good character development. Most astonishing and pleasing, David Tennant was a bit milder in this one. I actually LIKED him. <BR> <BR> I liked using the traditional witch mythos (words have power, spellcasting, etc.) and making it into a scientific thing. It meant ... Sun, 29 Jun 2008 21:39:36 EST Season Four Nearly Done Over the past few days I watched Silence in The Library, Forest of the Dead, Midnight, and Left Turn while on the treadmill (what a motivator!) and all I can say is WOW! <BR> <BR> I thought Forest of the Dead was one of the best episodes of television I've ever seen. Thu, 26 Jun 2008 17:07:20 EST Team Goals I'm going to try and keep some fitness goals going for us over the summer. I think we can kick this thing's butt! :D <BR> <BR> June - 200 minutes of cardio in the month <BR> July - 300 minutes of cardio in the month Thu, 26 Jun 2008 15:04:39 EST S4 - Midnight - No Spoilers Just have to say...TOTALLY ROCKED! <BR> <BR> I am really impressed with this series of Doctor Who. Not one horrible episode and only one (with Vesuvius) that I found a little boring. <BR> <BR> I'm really gonna miss having a full series next year and I hope it keeps on as good without Russel T. <BR> <BR> If anyone *does* want a bit of spoilers, you can read my LiveJournal Entry on the episode: <link> </link> Sat, 14 Jun 2008 15:21:37 EST Hi All! Cool! Doctor Who team! With Torchwood section! <BR> <BR> Anyway, I'm Tee, I'm 39, American Ex-pat living in Belfast. <BR> <BR> 2 more episodes and the season ends...what do you think is going to happen... <BR> <BR> Don't worry, no spoilers from this Brit! <em>211</em> Fri, 13 Jun 2008 11:53:59 EST Spark Policy on Chain Mail and Forwards Hi Everyone <BR> <BR> We've started to have more of a problem recently with "chain" messages. For example, you're asked to send something along to 10 of your friends, and before you know it you're getting this same message (or a similar one) from lots of different people. <BR> <BR> I think a lot of these are very nice, but not everyone wants them. So we're going to ask that people stop forwarding these along- either as SparkMail messages or comments on SparkPages. Please pass the word alo... Wed, 11 Jun 2008 15:21:24 EST S4: Silence in the Library (part 1 of 2) I absolutely LOVE this episode! I'd have to say it ranks right up there with "Blink" and "Unquiet Dead" as one of my all-time favorite episodes, AND it's a 2-parter so the story continues this coming weekend! <BR> <BR> I loved the creep-out factor of this episode with the whole "Stay out of the shadows!" stuff. it reminded me of "Blink" in that aspect, but this episode turned out to not be nearly as creepy as it appeared to be in the beginning (can you tell I'm a sucker for the scarier ep... Fri, 6 Jun 2008 16:00:32 EST Helping Out If you ever need extra help with a goal or support to get through life in general, you are more than welcome to post here. I'd make a forum for it, but they only allow two custom forums at the moment. Bah! :) Besides, a thread should work just the same, right? :) Tue, 3 Jun 2008 09:59:42 EST Curse Sci-Fi! WTF? They give us a two parter and make us wait 2 weeks to find out the conclusion! So not fair. Makes me wish I was in the UK and got to see these episodes sooner. Reminds me of Fox with the X-Files. I'd be so mad waiting to find out what happend. Sat, 17 May 2008 12:29:34 EST
