But they sealed the dimensional rift for good the first time, and there was a way back, so I wouldn't put it past a motivated Doctor to find a way to augment the dimensional jumping tech that the alternate dimension has and come back to hang out with River.
Where he'd get his hands on another TARDIS though would be an interesting story.
Maybe there's going to be another spinoff about Rose's dimension and hers and the Doctor's adventures there...
Yeah, never say never, however the TARDIS requirement would be a bit of a show-stopper.
Oh God please no. I can handle Torchwood, as Season 2 was surprisingly better than I expected (especially after the torture that was Season 1) and I don't watch Sarah Jane as I assume it's more kid-oriented, but regardless, another spin-off is just too much...
Regenerations never seem to go smoothly a bit of amnesia or paranoia might be expected from the new thread. Just as long as is doesn't try strangling ~Shard~ we'll be alright...Sorry, not the smoothest of jumps. That's what happens when you put a companion's hands on the levers of the Tardis.
The US is better now, we're only about 3 weeks behind or so, but as pointed out in the other thread we do sometimes miss out on bits as the SciFi channel edits for length.Does SciFi carry the latest episodes of the Doctor? or are we behind? (In the US)
They have been known to cut stuff out in the interest of cramming it into the hour that they have allotted, the BBC evidently has a much more lax scheduling procedure as mentioned in the other thread, the show rarely starts at the same time from week to week.They are editing it?!?! WTF?
Too many bloody commercials.
I totally missed it this past weekend, I need to get me some TiVo or something. Are all the previous season DVDs out in the US?
They cut out some of the Master dancing in last years finale to accommodate space and I'm guessing they'll do more of the same for this one.So the Sci-Fi Network is behind, and hasn't shown the Season 4 finale yet? That sucks. And you say they edit the episodes sometimes as well? How are they going to handle the finale then, since it was closer to a full hour as opposed to the usual 45 minutes?
How come you are not behind? you got BBC international or something?They cut out some of the Master dancing in last years finale to accommodate space and I'm guessing they'll do more of the same for this one.
Of course I am not behind, but I know plenty of others who are. The fact that they have cut bits before makes me less likely to change my watching habits. Not only do I get to be a few weeks ahead of the curve, but I also get to see everything.
I think the method that some here (including myself) use for acquiring the shows in a more timely manner would fall under the "or something" heading.How come you are not behind? you got BBC international or something?
Yeah, I'm not sure how they'll handle that one...I might have to watch the SciFi version just to see. I still TiVo every episode on SciFi on the off chance DirecTV is monitoring any watching habits, or rather, recording habits.Given that Journey's End clocked in at 65 minutes in length, there's gong to be some serious episode butchering if they want to trim it down to an hour including commercial breaks...
Um, well, er, you see the thing is...How come you are not behind? you got BBC international or something?
Yes, that's the method of acquisition I speak of... shhh, torrents are cool...I think the method that some here (including myself) use for acquiring the shows in a more timely manner would fall under the "or something" heading.
Lol sounds like some sort of disease... "Sorry sir, but you have Troughton Thread. Have you been walking around barefooted in pond water, recently?"I hereby nickname this thread the Troughton Thread!
BBC scheduling is always being upset by something or other. In ways it's good because you can have 65 minute long Doctor Who episodes, but in others it's really annoying because things are pushed out of the way for Football, Eurovision, etc.the BBC evidently has a much more lax scheduling procedure as mentioned in the other thread, the show rarely starts at the same time from week to week.
Ahhh!! You're filling my mind with terrible thoughts! D:I can't imagine Doctor Who stopping every 10-15 minutes for an ad break
Never. It's Doctor Who...it doesn't end. It went 27 years the first go-round, and RTD made a comment about laying the foundation for at least 20 years this time too. They're sort of taking a year off next year for a bit of a break, but it will continue indefinitely until the ratings go down the tubes. When you have a show where the entire cast changes regularly, where you have no set locations that you're tied to (well, aside from Cardiff ), and where you have all of space and time to play with, it doesn't make sense to end.Much Ado said:Now that everything is wrapped up nicely, and all the threads have been tied up, and we've had the prefect final shot of the doctor alone in the cosmos once more...
... does it not make sense to end there? If you don't end on an episode like that, then when will you end?
A bit, but not to the point of being stupid or anything. Doctor Who itself is kid-oriented, after all; in fact, one of the stories I thought was actually more mature than Doctor Who normally is. Although they did bring back the Slitheen. Watch it; it's pretty good, and even uses the "proper" Doctor Who format (25 minutes or so + cliffhangers).~Shard~ said:I don't watch Sarah Jane as I assume it's more kid-oriented
So you're not ready for the K-9 spinoff? OK, that one might be too much (even if it is real)....but regardless, another spin-off is just too much...
