No its not started yet, tho it has if you count the Christmas Day Special as the 1st episode of the series

I've just checked the Doctor Who website their only saying spring at the moment and that they wont know until about 2 weeks before it goes out. I think last year it started late March/early April over here so it will be starting soon.

Personally I cant wait for the new series of Torchwood to start up. Although I dont know if thats aired in the US or anywhere else yet.

The start date for Doctor Who was pushed back to 31 March because of a football (soccer) match the BBC decided to televise on the 24th.

I do agree this is shaping up to be a great season! Absolutely LOVED "The Shakespeare Code"! I can't wait for "Daleks in Manhatten"...even though I also feel the Daleks have been over-used since the series came back in 2005. Plenty of other alien races to explore besides re-inventing the Daleks (again).

I felt the first episode suffered a bit from firstepisodeitis. The second was loads of fun, and playing "spot the reference" was a fun way to spend the episode.

The third episode was the best so far, and one of the best episodes of the last three seasons. I really enjoyed it. Yes, I know there were plot holes. I don't care. It was fun and enjoyable and packed an emotional punch. Who could ask for more?

My only complaint is that they seem to be setting up a Martha/Doc relationship and I don't buy it. I don't see any chemistry between them. I think she makes a great assistant and I like the character, but I don't get the same tension I got between the Doc and Rose. Maybe it's just too soon for me after that relationship? I'll see how it developes over the coming weeks.

Did anyone else flash back to the Ariel scenes in Serenity when they showed what had happened to the city? I want to know if that was just me. *has Serenity on the brain*

I reckon the whole point of the last episode was to hear the 'Face of Bo' tell his secret, is any one else thinking what I'm thinking about that little revelation?! (answers on a post card!)

Not really on track with the rest of this thread, as I have only seen Season 1 so far, but...

Am I the only female watcher who could never understand why Rose wouldn't simply jump The Doctor's bones and get to work on restoring the Time Lord race? I sure would.

Of course since Chris Eccleston is no longer The Doctor I probably won't feel that way anymore. That man is scrumptious.

I too an loving this series so far.

I really liked the first episode of this season.
When the Doctor was in the hospital he really looked like he was enjoying playing with the humans, (talking about Ben Franklin and when Martha found his second heart).
Also loved the but when the Doctor told Martha her mate wasn't coming with them coz she'd just slow them down. And it made her cry!! Poor girl but it was very funny.

The Face of Bo's revelation is fairly obvious, unless that's what they want you to think!!!

Select to view spoiler:


In DW Confidential, David Tennant said that whilst Bo is right about him not being alone, the Doctor is also right about being the only Time Lord. The Master is from Gallifrey but was kicked out from being a Time Lord for his crimes.

Also the 'keywords' this season are apparently Mr. Saxon. It was used in the first episode.
Apparently, again, the finale features a character called Mr. Saxon (rumoured to be played by John Simm of Life On Mars).



Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Finally found out what is probably old news to everyone else, which is why it's so hard to find Season 2 on DVD region 1. Evidently a ton of them went out with errors on Disk 1 and were recalled. You are watching innocently along with children in the room and then suddenly BAM you're watching a scene from Texas Chainsaw Massacre that was so awful that it got cut from the theatrical release, something about an old man's legs getting cut off. Whew! Evidently only Disk 1 has the problem, and not all of them, but I can see why it was pulled.

In the original series the Doctor was usually played by an older man, but still travelled with a sucession of comely young ladies. So, to actually get romantically involved with one of them would be a bit taboo (especially in 1963). The new version is probably pushing this as far as it can go.

What may not be obvious if you're watching outside the UK on DVD or a specialist cable channel is that Dr Who is mainstream here - brand recognition to rival or possibly exceed Star Wars and original Trek. Heck, it ran for 25+ years, and most of that time there were only 3 TV channels. Its also firmly aimed at a family audience, and goes out at 7pm Saturday (6:35 tonight :-)). If the Doctor actually boffed a Companion then there would probably be questions asked in Parliament.

Hey Grizwald. No you are not alone but I much prefered David Tennant as The Doctor. It's a moot point now though what with Rose being inacsessable and all. And I understand INHs bit of info as well. Family show and all.

And the rest of you are just getting me all worked up. I don't know what you are all talking about as I'm a poor deprived American but I've been going crazy for some expaination since the season two ender.

Select to view spoiler:


'Daleks In Manhatten' was an incredibly brave episode. It didn't quite have the punch as last week's episode, but they've advanced the mythology of the Daleks in a bold and interesting way. It'll be cool to see how it pans out.

The hybrid Human Dalek didn't look too scary, although that's down to the fact that it's a family show. From a positive and technical standpoint, the animatronics are kick ass this year. The Rhino head and the Dalek Human hybrid are impressive for a tv show.

The tone of the third series is very comic bookesque too, moreso than the previous two. That's not a bad thing though. It gives it a cool stylised look.

Although, I feel there's a sense of de ja vu with the stories. This might just be the Doctor looking for some familiarity after the loss of Rose. Even Martha raised that point in the last episode.

For example, 'The Shakespeare Code' was kind of reminiscent of 'The Unquiet Dead' from series one. It contained two famous English writers and an evil portal.

It's true that the series repeats certain elements. There will always be 'historicals' in the show, although I feel they're sorta following too much of a similar pattern. Why does it have to be two historical writers and a rift/portal of some kind?

'Daleks In Manhatten' was reminiscent of 'Dalek' in series one. Both episodes featured a power hungry American, and Daleks contaminated with/changing through human DNA. (Rose's DNA regenerated and altered the Dalek in series one, and Sek merged itself with human DNA in 'Daleks in New York.')

The third series seems to combine parts of series one and two. I'm maybe overanalysing, but it is odd to see these trends. Is it a lazy repetition of a theme, just a deliberate and subtle hint at something planned for series three (Russel T Davis has said in interview that he has been leading up to certain events this series. It might be related to the Saxon story arc and not the Dalek one though) or is it my imagination?

Overall, I still love David Tennnant's performance this series. It's the strongest thus far. Freema Aygeman is a great addition to the show. I'm also eagerly awaiting the return of Captain Jack Harkness this series too. That's gonna be cracking!

I completely agree with your points about how this seems like a combination of series one and two (so far). I also agree that David has never been better and that Freema is a wonderful addition to the cast.

The one point I seem to be at odds with everyone is over how good "Gridlock" was. I found it slow and almost boring, yet everyone else talks about how much they enjoyed it. I accept that I may have missed the point of it, so I even went back and rewatched it, and I still found it lacking. Other than that story I have been loving this season!

Ok, before you guys start throwing things at me, I want to state that I love Dr Who. ok? got that? right. So can someone please tell me why the Manhattan episode was so bad? the plot was obvious, there were no twists or turns in the narrative, and only a few of the characters were believable. Add that to the fact that the BBC has taken on the wonderful habit of previewing the episode JUST ABOUT TO START and you can start to see my annoyance. True, only the first part has been aired, and I live in hope that Mr Davis has taken back the reigns for it, and somehow manages to turn it around.

Granted, we all know (or can guess) that something big is coming up this series, but it feels like there just going through the motions of getting rid of one story line so they can focus on that. Strikes me as a bit of a shame, that's all. But of course, that's just my opinion..*ducks*

I dunno, Knocker....

I really liked this episode. What I really really liked was that the actors were doing a very fair job at the American accents. Unfortunately Fred's (I think that was his name: young kid, one of the ones caught for the Final Experiment) accent sounded less Tennessee and more Arkansas/Texan, but meh I still liked it.

But, enough with the nitpicking on my part. I really did enjoy this episode. As I've stated before, I really like Martha more than Rose. Now, don't get me wrong, I actually really liked Billie Piper and her character! I just like Martha better. That's just me though.

So far, I've got to say, Season 3 is turning out quite excellent!

Oh, and on a side note:

Select to view spoiler:


I realized those of us in the U.S. are not supposed to lay eyes on Torchwood, but I did! And I really liked it....ALOT. My only complaint with it was having Capt. Jack's sexual preferences known. I will freely admit I am extremely prudish in my ways, and I have a hard time seeing past my upbringing in this particular matter. That and the swearing. It just seems like they are doing it just because they can. But then again, maybe it's just me...

That is not to say that I don't like the character or the series. I immensely enjoyed watching them and cannot wait to see more!

My wife, on the other hand, cannot stand these shows simply because she cannot understand a word anyone is saying, and because she just doesn't "get" british humor. Meh...her loss

Thanks CosmicFugitive for the info!

Knocker - you didn't like the episode? I did! Okay, I knew where they were going with the final experiment, but it's still a bold move for the Daleks story wise. In fact, it pretty much changes their entire outlook and makes them more dangerous than ever. It's not the results of the experiment itself that makes them so dangerous now, it's the fact that they experimented at all with the one thing that means more to them than anything else in the universe - and dared to change it.

I also quite liked the characters. Okay, Solomon was a bit cliche (the dividing the loaf in half made me giggle) but still, an interesting depiction of a troubled leader. The kid was a bit gee wizz mister for me, but he was pretty much there to be Mr. Nice Guy in Danger. Same goes for Lazlo. As for Tallulah, I *love* Tallulah! C'mon, you have to have loved Tallulah!

About the only part that grated for me was the needlessly long reunion scene between Lazlo and Tallulah. "But who are you? But who are you? But who are you?" Seriously, you haven't figured it out by now??? Anyway, I let that slide since I enjoyed the dance scene so much. They're really throwing themselves into the production this year!

And we get a battle scene next week. Yay!

Okay, not a spoiler so much as my own personal pet theory, but I'll spoiler it anyway since it mentioned season specifics.

Select to view spoiler:



The Face of Bo said that The Doctor wasn't alone, and we've all taken that to mean the Master. And I won't be dissapointed if it is, even if the world and it's mother *has* guessed what's going on. Still, since everyone *has* guessed, and since we've seen a human becoming a Dalek, I'd love if they took it in an entirely different direction - if we saw some random human becoming a Time Lord.

I don't know how it would work - evolution or the Time Lord power drifting randomly about without a home and settling on a human - but it would be interesting to see The Doctor take a fledgeling Time Lord under his wing. It would also mean he'd be really emotionally invested in the new Time Lord without the writers having to make them a couple. Much more parent/child. I think it could be an interesting dynamic.



Just a random idea. Ramdom idea shredding begins >>> NOW!

I found out last week that my local PBS station was running the 2005 series! Okay, I already have those episodes on DVD, but it is nice to see the 'uncut' versions on American television!!!

For anyone who hasn't heard yet:

In a press release issued today, SCI FI Channel and BBC Worldwide Americas announced a major acquisition deal for the U.S. premiere of the third season of Doctor Who. The series will debut on SCI FI in July 2007, kicking off with the Doctor Who Christmas Special, The Runaway Bride, guest-starring award-winning comedy actress Catherine Tate.

Ok, fair enough. I agree that so far the series has been great (besides my previously voiced concerns):) but the last one just left me a bit cold, that's all. My friends and I tried very hard to avoid all spoilers on the run up to the broadcast, but when there's a shot of the end result on the cover of radio times its a bit hard to miss! Still, I am looking forward to next weeks episode, just to see that the hell the guys were doing on top of the Empire State building!

Methinks there's a troll about. You wouldn't mistake "original" series 3 for a television program made in the last 30 years (thats assuming that series 3 still exists - lots of the early episodes got wiped).

If the warning to Martha's mum came directly from Mr. Saxon, then you have to wonder just how many bodies the Master has taken over since that is not the same "man" we know to be Mr. Saxon later in the season.



Just my initial reaction.




Well,

Perhaps the message came from Mr. Saxon but was delivered by someone else? Kind of like saying an order comes "straight from the top".

Well here's my thoughts on the last couple of comments....

Select to view spoiler:



I think the man was Saxon, he seemed to know who the Doctor was and stuff about him. If he was just a second in command or whatever then he wouldn't have made the earlier comments to Martha's mum.
The fact that Saxon was involved in this kind of experiment leads me to think that he is still looking for ways to prolong his life/regenerate etc. I seem to remember this being something he was after the last time we saw him with the earlier Doctor's.
Maybe the person we think is going to play Saxon will be the revealing change to the Doctor, the point when he realises who it really is?? Maybe, maybe not.

On a different story I have an idea of how the Daleks can come back. When the Doctor was on top of the Empire State Building and the lightning hit him it added Timelord DNA into the experiment. Now the surviving Dalek was linked up to this, so what if the Doctor's DNA entered the Dalek, therefore allowing it to regenerate, and any clones it then makes of itself. The Dalek said that their earlier experiments hadn't succeeded but now maybe they will. Also, it wouldn't be the first time they have used Timelord tech to survive.

It seems to me that they resolved the whole Martha - Doctor relationship. While it was never verbalized, it seemed to me that Martha established her role as Companion (or friend) to The Doctor, and not a new love interest.

Did anyone else get that feeling, or am I just grasping at straws here?

Oh btw, since I live in the U.S. and my exposure to Doctor Who is sporadic at best, would someone mind telling me which incarnation out of 12 we are at? Thanks a ton!

David Tennant is the 10th Doctor (since he can regenerate 12 times, he would actually have 13 'lives').

More along the lines of Martha definitely wants the Doctor's babies (can't judge for myself but I understand that Mr Tennant is considered "well fit" by much of the female - and some of the male - population) but he is still carrying a torch for Rose.

However, I think this was the first ep. that they didn't make some reference to Rose - so maybe that was the intention.

On one of the "Dr Who Confidential" shows (basically, in the UK, the DVD-extras-to-be are shown on a minority digital-only channel after the episode on BBC1) RTD said that there's going to be an unrequited love theme this time round.

I think the trailer they showed wasn't for the next ep it was for the rest of the season, still it was awesome.

After the next ep there's an upcoming 2-parter written by the guy who wrote "fathers day" (from the first season of this new batch of Doctor Who).
Which I'm looking forward to. Also this whole "Saxon" deal is really interesting

speculation:

Select to view spoiler:


I reckon that it is the guy from the previews (John Simm) and not the chap who was talking to Martha's mum. I agree with the idea that the "information came directly from Mr Saxon" in the sense of "came straight from the top" not directly as in it was him whispering in her ear. I doubt Mr Saxon would get so little attention at a big posh gathering like that.
I do think it's likely Saxon'll turn out to be The Master but it might be a red herring. I love the idea that Simm might be playing a timelord after life on mars

In a recent interview on "Parkinson", David Tennant did seem to indicate there was a lot more going on than anyone realizes yet...
