Fitness challenges, Tracking challenges, etc. Spark goodies will be awarded. Come join us!!! SparkPeople Doctor Who and Torchwood Fans Team Messageboard season 9 trailer I've watched this several times since yesterday. Can barely wait for it to start! <BR> <BR> <link><BR>h4QUy-A </link> Fri, 10 Jul 2015 08:58:46 EST What Do You Think of Capaldi? His first season is in the record books. So what did you think of Peter Capaldi? <BR> <BR> I warmed up to him a bit towards the very end. He still seems very detached to everyone tho. What do you think? Thu, 5 Feb 2015 14:28:47 EST Torchwood being revived... a series of radio plays! <BR> <link><BR>/torchwood-radio-plays-in-production-s<BR>ays-john-barrowman </link> Wed, 14 Jan 2015 13:30:16 EST Christmas Episode So what did you think? <BR> It was a bit of a slow burner for me. I wasn't sure at first. Then it picked up speed and got better and better. <BR> The "dream in a dream" thing always seems like a bit of a gimmick to me. But it mostly worked. <BR> Nick Frost was brilliant as Father Christmas. Tue, 13 Jan 2015 19:02:00 EST Doctor Who Christmas Special <link><BR>/hey-rudolph/ </link> <BR> <BR> A cute link. Can't wait for the show! Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:04:19 EST Pride and Prejudice and Zombies No.. the infection from my "Team Zombie" spark page has not spread to Doctor Who. Matt Smith (remember him?) is one of the leads in the new "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" film. It's a movie based on the book of the same name (including the zombie part.) After floating in limbo and having several big names (Natalie Portman) drop out, primary filming finally began this fall. Here is what we know: <BR> "Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different soci... Fri, 19 Dec 2014 13:57:40 EST Which Companion Are You? Stumbled across this quiz earlier today. <BR> <BR><BR>-doctor-who-companion-are-you <BR> <BR> Who did you get? <BR> <BR> I got Martha Jones: <BR> You know the meaning of sacrifice. Your interest in doing the right thing can come at great personal cost and sometimes without recognition. You are smart and can see the truth and you aren't afraid to let others know. Your determination and perseverance are your greatest qualities and you know when to wal... Tue, 14 Oct 2014 13:40:16 EST Time Heist (8.5) So what do we think of the Doctor as a bank robber? Mon, 29 Sep 2014 14:31:11 EST Listen (8.4) Most scary episode since the first appearance of the Angels? Lots of good parts in this one, I think. Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:00:14 EST Robot of Sherwood Well... um... that one was different. <BR> Every so often I feel like we have a throw away episode that kinda feels like filler. This was that, to me. Silly premise, the Doctor acting like an idiot. Hopefully there won't be more like this. Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:58:55 EST Into the Dalek How did you like the 2nd episode? What a cool concept! I only watched it once and I was pretty tired, I'll have to watch it again. Tue, 2 Sep 2014 11:01:01 EST Jenna-Louise Coleman Quits Well... this can't be good. <BR> With not even a full season of shows shot, Jenna-Louise Coleman appears to be leaving the show. She will allegedly depart in this years Christmas episode. The decision to quit the show has been called a "mutual decision". <BR> But to be honest, the whole thing seems odd to me. <BR> Thoughts? Tue, 19 Aug 2014 13:43:24 EST Deep Breath I'm so excited for the new season to launch with this episode! I'm also a little nervous about the new Doctor and the new tone of the story....but that's what keeps things interesting! Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:50:37 EST Want A Doctor Who Lego Set? It isn't a done deal yet... but.... <BR> <link><BR>e-for-doctor-who-lego/ </link> Mon, 11 Aug 2014 20:48:15 EST You Can See The First Show A Week 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.) <BR> Now I just saw the Monty Python event in the movie theater a week or so ago, and had a blast. It was a world wide simulcast of a live event, and money well spent. But I'm not so... Thu, 31 Jul 2014 19:27:21 EST Pears? I hate pears. Hello! I'm so glad to see that there is a Whovian team here on Sparkpeople. I love Doctor Who. It's become my obsession and I've made so many friends because of it. I have 110 pounds to lose. I will be going to Edinburgh come September for four months. I'm stoked. :) Wed, 30 Jul 2014 15:54:08 EST New in Many Ways I'm a new Doctor Who fan - and a new team member. <BR> <BR> I'd heard of the show for years, but we don't have cable or satellite, so I couldn't watch it. Enter Netflix... and my urge to watch just one episode to "see what it's like" has lead to a summer marathon, with my oldest daughter just as hooked as I am. <BR> <BR> I'll definitely be caught up by the time the new episodes air - going to have to find a friend or family member with the right channel. <BR> <BR> Anyway, glad to be here! Tue, 8 Jul 2014 12:42:25 EST Doctor Who On The Road Near You? It has been announced that in August, Doctor Who is going on a road trip. The trip will see Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, and Writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat visiting seven cities across five continents in 12 days. This is to pump up publicity for the new season. The tour launches in the UK on August 7 and finishes in Brazil on August 19. In New York City on Thursday, August 14, Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman will appear together for the first time in the U.S. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 21:43:53 EST Doctor Who Premier Date Announced The new Doctor lands on August 23, with what they are calling a "feature-length first episode" called “Deep Breath”. It will star Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara. <BR> We have a tiny little teaser trailer here. It doesn't really tell us much tho. Who is ready? <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Sun, 29 Jun 2014 21:39:36 EST Doctor Who in Theaters I took my daughter to see Maleficent a few days ago. As I looked at the list of movies scrolling through the ticket screen, only one movie all day was sold out. The David Tennant two-part Doctor Who story "Rise of the Cybermen" / "The Age of Steel". <BR> Wish I had remembered it was coming. <BR> Since the show sold out, I bet we see more in the future. Tue, 24 Jun 2014 18:09:12 EST Matt Smith vs. The Terminator It's true. Former Doctor Matt Smith has signed up to play an unspecified original role in the new Terminator film. <BR> We don't know much about the movie beyond the fact that Schwarzenegger will be returning to his T-800 robot form once more. <BR> What do you think? Wed, 7 May 2014 16:46:57 EST *a wooden shed materializes* Hello! I'm Bailey! I'm 18, a runner, and a big Whovian (of New!Who and the Classics!) I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and share in the adventure! Allons-y! Thu, 24 Apr 2014 12:20:44 EST Tom Baker Coming Back? While the fan favorite Doctor may not be taking the helm of the TARDIS any time soon, Tom Baker told a recent interviewer that he would return to Doctor Who if given the chance. “If it was a nice part, with some good lines, I might deign to appear.” He also talked about how playing the Doctor propelled his career. “Probably I stayed on too long. But the truth is, I never did give it up—because people wouldn’t let me give it up! I’d been waiting for a part like Doctor Who all my life and sinc... Wed, 23 Apr 2014 18:17:57 EST Whee!! Hi there! I'm Billie. I'm 18, a geek (aren't we all?) and an animal lover. I'm a wiccan (make of that what you will) and am handfasted to the man I've loved since childhood. I'm losing weight for health reasons, as the cartilage in my joints is breaking down rapidly. There's nothing else I can think of, so just hello, and allons-y! :) Fri, 21 Mar 2014 13:47:56 EST Amy and The Doctor Back Together Matt Smith may be done playing The Doctor, but he is still doing conventions and appearances. Matt and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) will appear at Wizard World Louisville Comic Con. this month. Smith will attend on Saturday, March 29, while Gillan is scheduled for Friday and Saturday morning, March 28-29. <BR> It could be one of the few times The Doctor and Amy Pond are back together again. Fri, 7 Mar 2014 14:50:40 EST Meet Danny Pink We have been given our first image of what may be a new companion. Samuel Anderson is being called a "recurring character", Danny Pink, a teacher at the school where Clara works. <BR> <BR> I never payed attention to the name of the school where she works, but it is the same school where Ian and Barbara first met the Doctor in 1963. <BR> <BR> Episodes are well into filming. It will be interesting to see the first clips of the new Doctor in action. <BR> <BR> Tue, 4 Mar 2014 19:11:47 EST River Song So do we have a conclusion to River Song? I feel like that story still needs wrapping up. Wed, 5 Feb 2014 18:37:18 EST Doctor Who "Day of the Doctor" on Blu Ray Now available in the states, "Day of the Doctor" on Blu-Ray and 3D. <BR> Makes me wish I had a 3D TV. Imagine watching the TARDIS sailing through time and space in 3D. The whole episode was such a good one, I thought. I own no Doctor Who on DVD, but I may just need to go out and buy this one. <BR> Wed, 8 Jan 2014 17:43:06 EST Christmas Special Trailer As far as we know, this will be the last episode with our current Doctor. This trailer seems to support the speculation. <BR> Thoughts? The Silence are still really freakin' creepy. <BR> <link> </link> Wed, 11 Dec 2013 16:15:38 EST Lots of Great Articles There have been lots of great articles over the past week, touching on the 50th Anniversary show. Here are a few: <BR> An interview with Colin Baker, upset that he wasn't asked to be part of the show. <BR> <link><BR>bc-over-doctor-who-snub-%E2%80%93-dail<BR>y-tv-round-up-105826346.html </link> <BR> Also, how the movie did in the UK <BR> <link><BR>-big-box-office-impact-141107965.html </link> Thu, 28 Nov 2013 20:03:20 EST The Time of the Doctor We now have a bit of information on the Christmas episode, called "The Time of the Doctor". <BR> The brief description is: <BR> "The Doctor must sacrifice everything to save a town called Christmas from his greatest enemies..." <BR> We assume this is the last Matt Smith episode. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> Tue, 26 Nov 2013 16:48:23 EST The Day of the Doctor -- SPOILERS Hi! What did you like and not like about the anniversary special? <BR> <BR> I most loved the way 10 and 11 were goofing off together, but of course also loved the nods to the former Doctors (and the future Doctor). <BR> <BR> Gallifrey Falls No More! Sun, 24 Nov 2013 20:59:18 EST Night Of The Doctor A Web Prequel BBC just posted "Night Of The Doctor", a webisode prequel to Day of the Doctor. <BR> Take a look and tell me what you think. <BR> I was very happy... <BR> <link> </link> Fri, 15 Nov 2013 13:08:41 EST Leadup To The Big Day. Full schedule. We are get ready for what may be the biggest Doctor Who event ever on November 23rd. Here is a list of events on BBC America: <BR> <BR> MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18 <BR> <BR> Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited Marathon – All day, starting 9am. Go behind the scenes with the First through the Tenth Doctor. <BR> <BR> Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS (U.S. Premiere) – 9/8c <BR> This all-new special features exclusive interviews with principal cast members from the show’s 50-year history, including ac... Wed, 13 Nov 2013 13:00:09 EST Day of the Doctor in theaters in 3D? Over in the UK, they have started selling tickets to the theatrical release (in 3D) for Day of the Doctor. A quick search of Fandango here is the states shows nothing, but it might be worth keeping an eye out for. Wed, 23 Oct 2013 18:08:21 EST Peter Capaldi I am not really familiar with his other work, and was kind of incensed at first when I saw he was to be the new Doctor. <BR> It is still kind of odd that he played in one of the episodes already because it feels like he would have crossed his own path...but he was playing a different character, its not like he was the Doctor in that episode. <BR> The more I think about it, the more I like the fact that they chose a middle aged guy to be the final Doctor. Barring the fact that he is over 90... Sun, 20 Oct 2013 16:47:07 EST Day Of The Doctor trailer This looks great. I hope the show is this good. <BR> <link> </link> Sat, 19 Oct 2013 22:28:13 EST New Audio Books It was announced this week that there will be new additions to the series of audio books called "Dark Eyes" starring Paul McGann as the Doctor and Ruth Bradley as Molly O’Sullivan. <BR> I didn't even realize that they were still making audio books featuring older Doctors. This new series is a sequel to a story from around a year ago. It sounds interesting: <BR> Dark Eyes tells the story of a Doctor dealing with the loss of his companion, and hunting for new meaning in his life. He finds some ... Wed, 9 Oct 2013 15:06:57 EST Regeneration Time Table So here is how it looks like things will happen. <BR> Doctor Who returns this November with their 50th Anniversary Special. Around one month later the Christmas Special rengeneration episode will air. After that, we don't know when the show will pick back up. <BR> <BR> It looks like the regeneration will be a very traumatic one. The interview I read referenced that the Doctor is " ... terribly aware that he’s about to be rewritten. And it’s frightening..." <BR> <BR> Tue, 3 Sep 2013 18:11:58 EST Sixth Doctor Hello! <BR> <BR> I'm going to Fan Expo here in Toronto this weekend, and Colin Baker is one of the guests. I haven't watched much from the earlier seasons (don't judge!), can you recommend an episode or two from his time? <BR> <BR> thanks! Tue, 20 Aug 2013 10:19:54 EST The 12th Doctor The BBC announced the actor playing the next doctor yesterday: <BR> <link> </link> Mon, 5 Aug 2013 08:59:49 EST Sunday August 4 I just found this on the FB feed... <BR> Around midnight british time there will be a officially confirmation from BBC 1 for a tv programme called: "Doctor Who Live: The Next Doctor" who will air on Sunday 4 August at 7pm where they usual send "Celebrity Mastermind". So remember to breathe until then. Admin nete <BR> <BR> <link><BR>ed-on-sunday-52184.htm </link> Thu, 1 Aug 2013 14:21:37 EST 50th Anniversary Episode Update On November 23rd, the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary show will air. Not only are there going to reportedly be a total of 4 Doctors in this episode, but the BBC, in order to prevent spoilers, is simul-casting the episode world wide. It will air on the east coast at 2pm and the west coast at 11am. This coincides with the UK airing at 7pm (I think.) <BR> So... the first two Doctors are obvious... and Christopher Eccleston has reportedly refused to participate. So who are our other two Doctors? Thu, 1 Aug 2013 14:18:59 EST The Name Of The Doctor Yes, I'm horribly behind.. but I finally got to watch what I think turned out to be the best episode of the season. I loved that they folded in clips of all the other doctors, and we sort of finally got a bit of a breakdown of the Clara story. <BR> Plus we got yet another Harry Potter actor crossover :) Can't go wrong with that. <BR> <BR> I wonder if this is the last time we see River Song? <BR> <BR> BTW, every time Strax opens his mouth, something hilarious comes out. Thu, 1 Aug 2013 11:43:47 EST Finally a way to keep me on the treadmill! Hi everyone! I'm new to this team but I've been a Whovian since I was a little girl in Ireland. Now I live in Florida and get to share Doctor Who with my fifteen year old son - how cool is that? Anyway, like most people here, I've struggled with my weight pretty much my adult life and I know what I need to do but have trouble getting started. For two weeks I've been saying I was going to start using my treadmill (since I'm too embarrassed to go to the gym) but I couldn't find the safety key. ... Wed, 10 Jul 2013 09:32:09 EST Christopher Eccleston Surfaces Christopher Eccleston (the first of the "new" Doctors) has just joined the cast in the HBO pilot "The Leftovers," by "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof. The story follows what happens to those who are not transported to Heaven during The Rapture. <BR> <BR> In the New York Times, Stephen King called the book “the best Twilight Zone episode you never saw." Tue, 11 Jun 2013 11:58:24 EST Matt Smith Leaving Show There were rumors swirling around about this, and it kinda felt to me like they were setting the stage. But it was announced this weekend that Matt Smith will be leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year. <BR> In part, here is what Matt said: <BR> “Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show. I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realise all the e... Sat, 1 Jun 2013 18:26:01 EST New EP For the Doctor A new Executive Producer was announced this week for Doctor Who. He is Brian Minchin. <BR> Brian has worked as script editor on Doctor Who, was a producer on Torchwood, and The Sarah Jane Adventures. <BR> <BR> Only a few new episodes left for the season, and then the 50th Anniversary Special. Wed, 1 May 2013 17:15:41 EST Christopher Eccleston is OUT With David Tennant appearing in a script read through for the anniversary episode of Doctor Who, and lots of companions confirmed, the question was being asked if Christopher Eccleston would appear in the 50th Anniversary episode. We now have our official answer. <BR> <BR> "Chris met with Steven Moffat a couple of times to talk about Steven's plans for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode. After careful thought, Chris decided not to be in the episode. He wishes the team all the best." <B... Fri, 12 Apr 2013 18:10:07 EST How Do You Like The New Season? Well.. I know it's not a NEW season, but rather, the second half of this season. But still. <BR> <BR> What do you think? <BR> I like the new desktop for the TARDIS. I like his new clothes. <BR> The companion hasn't grown on me yet. But I'm trying. Wed, 10 Apr 2013 21:12:43 EST Doctor Who Multi-Doctor Episode Confirmed We saw our first images of rehearsals for the official 50th Anniversary Doctor Who episode, 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 18:08:49 EST Three New Who Books The novels are The Plague of the Cybermen by Justin Richards, The Dalek Generation by Nicholas Briggs, and Shroud of Sorrow by Tommy Donbavand. <BR> In Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, we find the Doctor investigating a world where the Daleks suspiciously seem to be a force for good. In Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow, the aftermath of JFK’s assassination is the setting for an attack by an alien Shroud feasting on the grief of a world in mourning. In Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, the Doct... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 14:50:04 EST The Doctors Revisited BBC America has been running a new series called The Doctors Revisited featuring a look back at first generation "classic" Doctors. <BR> <BR> The next episode of the ‘The Doctors Revisited: The Third Doctor’ will air on March 31 at 8/7c, followed by a special airing of 'Spearhead from Space.' <BR> <BR> If you've never seen "Spearhead", you should. It was the first story of Season 7 of Doctor Who and was the first to feature Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor and introduced a new companion, Li... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:54:12 EST World's Biggest Doctor Who Party I wish I could get there. <BR> It was recently announced that there will be a three-day long celebration of all things Doctor Who at the ExCel convention center in London, celebrating the show's 50th anniversary. <BR> <BR> It starts on Friday the 22nd of November, and finishes on Sunday 24, and is expected to draw over 15,000 people. No details yet about who will appear, or what events might happen. But you can be sure all the living Doctors will be present, and there will be LOTS of people... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:39:39 EST 50th Anniversary Doctor Who The 50th Anniversary approaches! The very first episode of Doctor Who aired on November 23, 1963. <BR> Me, I've been watching Doctor Who since the Tom Baker days, tho thanks to an old PBS station have been able to see almost every episode, including lots of black and white ones. I'd love to see a multi-Doctor crossover episode, like they did in the old days. If you could team the current Doctor up with any other Doctor for an episode, who would you pick? Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:34:38 EST Doctor Who Returns Saturday, March 30 at 8pm is the official return time for all new Doctor Who episodes on BBC America. <BR> We have a new companion, and those transitions are always bumpy at first. How do you think Clara will do? Or are you firmly in the Amy/Rory forever camp? Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:28:51 EST Hello Fellow Whovians! Hello everybody, my name is Julia. I've finally decided enough was enough and I'm going to loose my weight! i'm 200lbs, and hope to be 150lbs by september! Anywho, I'm love Doctor Who, my favorite doctor is 10 played by David Tennant, and my favorite companion is Rose Tyler ;) I'm currently watching the classic episodes, I'm currently on 4 played by Tom Baker, he's my second favorite doctor :) Sun, 10 Mar 2013 22:02:58 EST Whovian here!

Even my Irish pseudo-family has told me they sometimes forget I ... Wed, 6 Mar 2013 13:31:53 EST The Secret of Series 7b This week I was out with the Doctor Who Society of Canada and we got discussing the 'big secret' that is going to be revealed in the next part of series 7, and there are a lot of theories going arround! I was just wondering if any of you had any interesting theories to throw in the mix Tue, 5 Mar 2013 11:44:03 EST Cabin Fever Relief Tell us how you are combatting the Winter blahs, <BR> Are you staying in and doing yoga, or a exercise dvd? <BR> or are you outdoors skiing, snowboarding? <BR> or you braving the gym? <BR> Let us know. Sat, 2 Feb 2013 23:28:53 EST Will Rose Return? There have been discussions about several earlier Doctor Who characters returning this year for the 50th anniversary. <BR> If you are curious, here is what Billie Piper had to say about Rose Tyler returning <BR> <link><BR>feature=player_detailpage </link> Mon, 28 Jan 2013 14:21:43 EST A Series Of Awesome Specials! Finally. I've watched the various Doctor Who BBC specials over the past two years of so, wondering why (for the most part) a vast majority of the series has been completely ignored. It really ticked me off to see a special on the companions of the Doctor with no mention of Adric, Teegan, Romana, Nyssa, and dozens of early generation companions. It is as if nothing before Eccleston existed. <BR> Well starting at the end of January, this will be fixed. Each Doctor will be given his own retrosp... Mon, 28 Jan 2013 14:07:11 EST The Next New Who Will Be... BBC has confirmed that Doctor Who returns to air all new episodes on Saturday, 30 March. No word on the episode details yet, tho it will be written by Steven Moffat. They also confirmed that legend Neil Gaiman will return to write an episode. Thu, 24 Jan 2013 12:06:07 EST Hi everyone! Hi there! It's great to see a vibrant group of Whovians on this site. <BR> <BR> My ultimate goal is to become fit so that if the Doctor ever shows up in my back yard, I'm able to keep up with him. What about you guys? Tue, 22 Jan 2013 11:07:20 EST Running Like the Doctor... Hiya. <BR> <BR> As I'm sure many of you have noticed by my screen name, I'm in love with much that is absolutely geektastic. The Doctor is one of my absolute favorites- to the point that there are plans in the works to build my daughter a Tardis-themed treehouse. (Feel free to laugh.) <BR> <BR> Glad to be here, folks, and nice to meet you. Fri, 11 Jan 2013 19:14:46 EST Geronimo! Hello all, my name is Lashwynn, and I am a fellow Whovian. Actually, I find myself on Spark mostly because of Doctor Who, because I want to do a gender swapped 4 cosplay that involves these thigh high socks done up like the doctor's scarf, and well, my thighs currently don't allow me to wear them. <BR> I am absolutely terrible at these introduce yourself pages, so I will just say Hullo! And Allons-y! Fri, 11 Jan 2013 18:05:43 EST Weekly commitment - Week of Janauary 14th What are you willing to commit to for one week? <BR> One day at a time, one week at a time, each decision we make whether it's a good decision or a not so good decision leads you to our destiny. <BR> What is your destiny going to be? <BR> Do you want to lose weight? <BR> do you want to run a marathon? <BR> do you need to gain health? <BR> What ever it is, share it with us and we will cheer you! <BR> let us know what this week has in store for you. Wed, 9 Jan 2013 11:01:48 EST Christmas Episode So what did you think of this year's Christmas Episode? <BR> I liked the dark tinge the Doctor took in the episode, complete with wardrobe change. <BR> <BR> I thought that they did with the new companion was very interesting, killing her off in two episodes. It will be fun to see how they bring her back again. <BR> <BR> I must say tho, I thought the special effects on the snowmen were a bit on the weak side.

Sun, 9 Dec 2012 17:57:23 EST I'm so excited! My beau and I weren't planning on much for each other for Christmas but we went ahead and added about a hundred channels to our cable package just so we could get BBC America, lol...JUST for Dr. Who and TW! <BR> <BR> The only complaint I have right now is that both the shows air at around 9am here...and I am stuck at work. They are reruns, but I sure would watch them! <BR> <BR> Not that we NEEDED a hundred more channels, mind you, but we couldn't get it any other way. <BR> My brain keeps... Thu, 6 Dec 2012 15:14:30 EST So, the chameleon circuit broke in episode 2?! So....the chameleon circuit has been broken since episode 2?! You would think they would have found time to stop at a hardware store, lol! <BR> <BR> We watched the very first episode of DW tonight, the acting was VERY different back then, but it had the same 'feel' to it then as it does now! Fri, 30 Nov 2012 21:08:23 EST New Companion Interview Entertainment Weekly has an interview with Jenna Louise Coleman, the Doctor's new companion.

I'm a huge Doctor Who fan; Peter Davison was my "first" Doctor, and I was hooked ever since! Sat, 24 Nov 2012 00:51:14 EST Are You Up To Speed? It's funny. As I talk to people who I know are big fans of Doctor Who, many of them haven't watched all of this season yet. It's almost like there was no real compelling reason to watch the episode as soon as it came out. <BR> This is a big difference from last season, where every episode kind of revealed a part of the puzzle we were putting together. So we were eager to get the next bit of program. <BR> <BR> What do you think? Are you up to speed on the show? Did you think the episodes this... Thu, 22 Nov 2012 16:26:03 EST Christmas Show Prequel Completely different from the trailer, this mini-episode is a prequel to the full episode airing on Christmas. <BR> Be warned, it is a bit spoilery if you haven't yet seen the most recently aired episode, which was the final Amy/Rory one. <BR> Which... I hadn't yet. And now I'm mad at myself. But that's besides the point. <BR> Here is the prequel: <BR> <link> </link> Wed, 21 Nov 2012 15:00:36 EST Christmas Show Trailer A trailer has gone up for the Doctor Who Christmas special. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> I've read some interesting things about the show (and the Doctor) turning very dark for a while, following the end of this past season. His new wardrobe certainly seems to reflect that.

(No official word on how that's going to happen, given the fact that the planet she was on got blown up by the Daleks.)Then, in the spring, the show will be back for an eight-episode run.

My beau mentioned that The Captain had made appearances on Dr. Who, that this was in fact, where he came from. <BR> <em>40</em> <BR> I am pretty sure it was a clever plot to get me addicted to DW as well.

When the new version of Doctor Who was being made, television pirates were desperate to acquire the preview tapes. One of the people in the office had the idea of labeling the tapes with the anagram "Torchwood" rather than "Doctor Who", as a security measure to disguise the tapes when they were delivered from Cardiff to London. Writer Russell T. Davies liked this idea so much that it lat... Tue, 23 Oct 2012 20:17:47 EST Doctor Who Meets Disney I *love* this artwork.

It seems that Matt Smith recently invited “Lord of the Rings” filmmaker Peter Jackson to direct an episode of “Doctor Who” and Peter Jackson said yes. ''I'm a huge Dr Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!'' Jackson told a newspaper this week. Smith wants to shoot the episode in New Zealand. <BR> Could be epic!

How about those Harry Potter folks showing up? Pretty fun. <BR> I thought that the last episode (Asylum) was good, but a but uneven with Amy and Rory. But things seemed to settle down in this episode. I've read some reviews that suggest this was one of Matt Smith's better episodes in a while. Thoughts? Tue, 11 Sep 2012 12:03:30 EST Hey Skepchick!

Neil Gaiman revealed this week that he is writing a second Doctor Who episode. The new episode is slated for the second half of season seven. Gaiman won a Hugo award for "The Doctor's Wife" which was a truly amazing episode (available on Netflix for those of you who have it.) Thu, 6 Sep 2012 14:53:43 EST Huzzah! An "old" (yeah, sorta) Doctor fan for decades and decades, although not really into the new stuff OR Torchwood ... looking forward to the discussions here.

Mon, 3 Sep 2012 16:39:28 EST new fan materialising :-) I'm a terrible Doctor Who fan. Actually I'm watching an episode right now. <em>30</em> I hope I'll get to meet some fellow Spark people who are on the way of improving their lifes and also won't think I'm strange for watching 700 episodes of a madman in a blue box. <em>334</em> Fri, 31 Aug 2012 15:19:13 EST Five Best Episodes for New Viewers? I read an article this week written by a guy wanting to introduce The Doctor to new viewers. He was trying to come up with the five best introductory episodes to Doctor Who, and this is what he came up with: <BR> Rose, Blink, The Girl in the Fireplace, Silence in the Library and Vincent and the Doctor. <BR> <BR> What do you think of his list? There are definitely better episodes out there, but these five are good for people who know nothing about the show. Thu, 30 Aug 2012 11:40:43 EST Did you track your food today? Yes, Great! Tell us Tuesday <em>248</em> Wed, 29 Aug 2012 10:57:51 EST Ready For A Female Doctor? Dr. Who showrunner Steven Moffat made an interesting comment last week in an interview about the upcoming season. When asked about if he would ever consider a female Doctor, he said it was something they have been discussing for some time. Now, that doesn't mean anything other than the fact that it has been considered, but if in fact this is Matt Smith's last season, it could make for a VERY interesting regeneration. <BR> What do you think? Are you ready for a female Doctor?

I have three on them in the Tivo, waiting to be watched. BBC America has done a great job trying to catch people up on the program who might not be long time fans. I'm hoping to watch "The Timey Wimey of Doctor Who" tonight. I hope they don't blow off stuff from the "old" series.

It's a great article about how the show is such a cult hit. Its great to see him on the cover!

We will have an episode set in the American wild West, an episode in ancient Egypt (featuring Cleopatra) and an episode taking dinosaurs to space. They wouldn't spill the beans on how Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill leave the show, nor would they confirm a multiple Doctors episode, but they did state that a new generation of Daleks have been born. Sounds interesting. Tue, 17 Jul 2012 15:16:14 EST Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control I think most Doctor Who fans are, by their very nature, geeks.

It's the theory around which Miracle Day centered. As much as I love DW/T'wd, having read several of Rupert Sheldrake's works, I was not impressed by the way it was (un)explained.

Sat, 7 Apr 2012 16:30:50 EST The End of Matt Smith? Since Amy and Rory are leaving the show this season, bringing about the introduction of a new companion, does this mean Matt Smith is not much longer for the show? They rarely change both the Doctor and his companion within a short time of each other. I'm wondering if this means that a hunt for a new Doctor is beginning. Thu, 22 Mar 2012 11:23:21 EST The Doctor's New Companion is HERE Contrary to earlier suggestions, the new companion joining the Doctor will be actress Jenna-Louise Coleman. Six episodes of Season/Series 7 will air this year, including a Christmas Special which will introduce Coleman's character. 8 further episodes will follow net year. <BR> <BR> Also, Amy & Rory will leave in a final encounter with the Weeping Angels in episode 5.

I actually started watching Torchwood first, then realized it was a spinoff of Dr. Who (I never bothered to read the synopsis).

Wed, 5 Oct 2011 14:01:09 EST Hi, from Sunshineland! I had to join as I've been a Who fan forever--I joined up with Tom Baker when I was a pre-teen, but I like 'em all. <BR> <BR> I absolutely love Torchwood, too. The writing on that show is so much fun! <BR> <BR> They still show the good Doctor on PBS in Chicago (where I'm from) but don't in my adopted state of Florida (at least, not this part). <BR> <BR> Good luck to everyone! <BR> <BR> Tue, 6 Sep 2011 13:04:27 EST Dr. Who Bad Guy Quiz I don't use Facebook, so I can't actually see if this is any good or not.

Thanks to Netflix and streaming, I ran across Torchwood. I was almost done with season 1 before I found out that it is a spin off from Doctor Who. <BR> <BR> Now I am trying to link the 2 together in the proper time line, so I just started watching the new (to me) Doctor Who series.

The torturing scene was tough to watch! Do you think those men started PhiCorp? If so, how are they connected to Angelo or the Miracle?

He is the one character who had appeared with nearly every Doctor, plus appeared in the Sarah Jane series. I found it especially touching (and odd) that he was the only Who cast member to attend the funeral of Anthony Ainley (The Master.) Take a minute and read the article linked below, then raise a gla... Thu, 24 Feb 2011 17:09:55 EST RIP, Nicholas Courtney I'm still somewhat in shock. I read on a lot of the geek blogs that Nicholas Courtney passed away this evening. He was 81. I know he hadn't been well, but there was still a part of me that was hoping he'd show up on the new series some time. <BR> <BR> I think I'll be watching Mawdryn Undead and Battlefield tonight.

Mon, 31 Jan 2011 21:46:27 EST "Original New Series??" I know this show isn't Dr Who or Torchwood, but I'd like to discuss Syfy's "new" series, Being Human. It's only new if we pretend BBC America's series "Being Human," doesn't exist. They've changed the names of the 3 main characters, but the plot line, at least in the 1st episode, seems the same as the REAL original. Well, Bishop's name is the same, but so far they seem to follow the same script as the British version. I'll watch for a while, but I'm skeptical about how good it will be. It'll ...

I've missed one recent episode of Torchwood--the one where Tosh & Owen die.

Sat, 29 Aug 2009 15:35:06 EST $1 a pound fund This is a fun one! <BR> For every pound you lose, you will put $1 in a piggy bank or jar (whatever you have). <BR> Once you reach your "goal weight" then you can open your piggy bank and spend the money on something special for yourself (not food!) <BR> Maybe a new dress, a spa treatment, a new bike or fitness clothes - whatever you want! <BR> We can start today or if you like you can start with the money you've already lost ( for me it will be $22 dollars - I've lost 22 pounds so far ) <BR>...

She's the only real-life person with whom I can discuss episodes after they run in the UK, so when she ran to me this morning and said, "YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS!!!" I knew it was something special. <BR> <BR> Her fellow team members had decorated her cube in a Ten theme (Tennant everywhere!), and gave her an action figure. The topper was her cake, decorated like a TARDIS. The person who baked it apparentl... Thu, 27 Aug 2009 21:39:01 EST Week of August 17th - 23rd - 200 minutes of Cardio Ok so 200 minutes this week. <BR> Are you up for it? <BR> Mon, 17 Aug 2009 09:25:30 EST Hooray! I've been searching for teams that reflect my pop culture interests, so I typed in Doctor Who. I wasn't expecting Torchwood too! <BR> <BR> This Team's existence makes me very happy. I hope to add a little something to the goals and hopefully find someone with whom I can mourn Ianto's passing. <em>198</em> Sun, 9 Aug 2009 19:36:38 EST John Barrowman had a car crash For all you fans, John Barrowman plays Captain Jack on Torchwood. <BR> Apparently he was driving a car for a TV show and rolled the car. <BR> He walked away with minor injuries. <BR> This happened July 21st, I just found out and thought you all might be interested.

Sat, 8 Aug 2009 21:48:40 EST Torchwood Cast Member East Coast Appearance! Hope this is OK to post here.

It is a really fun fan-run show and always a good time. If a...

Hi! My name is Rachel and I'm a huge Torchwood and Doctor Who fan. I've been watching Doctor Who since I was a kid. I adore British television but I think their action adventure/science fiction is really the best! Looking forward to joining some of you in the challenges! Sat, 25 Jul 2009 10:53:05 EST I just had to join! Hi there! I've been waiting to watch Torchwood Children of Earth and lurking around LiveJournal reading fan fics when I found this team. Immediately I knew I had to join! <BR> I've seen all of the New Doctor Who and all of Torchwood. I'm working on the Classic Doctor Who (which is hard living in the States). Luckily I've got plenty of friends who actually know what I'm talking about when I bring up the Doctor. My fav is Ten. I just love David Tennant! And John Barrowman's right up ther... Tue, 14 Jul 2009 15:53:39 EST This is an awesome group! I'm a college student from Oregon, and I've been a fan of Doctor who ever since I was introduced to it about two years ago. I just recently finished watching the second season of Torchwood, and I am totally stoked for the week of specials. When I work out, I enjoy working out to some of the music from the soundtracks :) Mon, 6 Jul 2009 17:30:14 EST
