    A UK only thing I assume? Pity. Looks pretty cool but it'll probably take ages to get here and only play at 4:00 AM on BBC America, or something equally cool.

    That was really, really good :cool: David Tennant (think that's his name) did a great job.

    That was great :D Who did the Dr Who game afterwards? "However, there is a risk that if you switch to ITV tonight, the galaxy may implode..." :p

    Some great one liners in there! I like the one about the Lion King. The Prime Minister realising that the Royal Family were on the roof was good, too.

    it was very very good I though. RTD could be my favourite writer. the way he made Tennant out to be this weak sapling to have him fight was just brilliant. though I though that was the sluggiest sword fight ever :D

    but the end! that stupid PM! I felt a chill down my spine when the guy said that Torchwood was ready... I was even looking for the new Badwolf reference! "dont you think she's looking tired?" or whatever. at first i thought Torchwood was the new Badwolf... we'll see.

    amazing. March can't come any quicker :D

    but the whole British thing was just brilliant! tea revived him! and the politics Iraq war stab was genius :D

    I'll be watching the Dr. Who Christmas Special (The Christmas Invasion) very soon now courtesy of Bittorrent. :D

    Is this what y'all are yammerin' on about?

    OH! I was going to say last night... its not Dr. Who, its Doctor Who

    It's not a prefix. a prefix would be followed by a name - Dr. Evil or Dr. Robotnic. he IS the Doctor. Who isn't his name, its mean to be like "Your name... doctor... who?" *opening the field for the Doctor to fill in his name*.

    sorry to be picky but y'know... its the Doctor! :D

    I enjoyed it a lot!

    David Tennent is great as the new Doctor, although Christopher E. was also a great Doctor. I'll miss him.

    Torchwood was pretty awesome. But why was it activated? and then Harriot Jones made out to be a bad person? She's great BTW.

    Did Roses' mom gain some weight?

    Overall, it was a fantastic start. Funny as usual, too.

    Have the episode, haven't had time to watch it yet - looking forward to it though!

    For any Doctor Who fans, keep in mind this thread was started a while ago now and there have been some excellent discussions! :cool:

    Torchwood is the spin-off series starring Captain Jack (Have I got that name right?) which will be on BBC3 only. Its also an anagram of Doctor Who......

    Starts in the spring. I think its essentially an Earth Defence Team....

    I'll check it out for sure, but I don't have my hopes up, only because of the whole "K-9 and Company" thing a long time ago.... ;)

    You're not wrong... I've tried to forget that particular travesty!!

    Yep, K-9 and Sarah Jane Smith - should be good! We already chatted about it some time ago here. Looking forward to seeing the return of the Cybermen as well. :cool:
