You're in luck--the Guardian has just started a list of the best Dr. Who episodes.

I would add to this The Robot (If only because it has absolutely the best line from the doctor of any doctor in any series as far as I'm concerned), The Ark in Space, The Sontaran Experiment, then Genesis of the Daleks.

Still haven't had a chance to watch the classic Who. shog[1].gif




This would make one Hell of a great spin-off show. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Confirmation is being posted of this everywhere, but David Tennant has been confirmed for the 50th special!

Confirmation he will be playing the 10th Doctor. I do wonder if this still leaves open him play the version of himself with a single heart that was left with Rose. http://tennantnews.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/official-bbc-announcement-david-tennant.html

Just announced. Matt Smith to leave his role as the 11th Doctor by the end of the year.

frown.gif It's been a great run and he will be missed.

EDIT: All but confirms he will regenerate in the Christmas Special. That at least I am thankful for. There were rumors the 50th might be his last, and that just felt too rushed of a story to me with Tennant coming back and Hurt taking up screen time.

Bump for the 50th anniversary today at 2:50 Eastern.

So... What did everybody think?
post #296 of 350
I liked it. I went in thinking it would be a land-mark episode, but afterwards it occurred that it had to stand alone rather than impact any story-line.

The only bits I didn't like were the shoe-Horning in of the new doctor. It was both contrived and half-assed which I didn't like. There were also nerd-level details that annoyed me (the first TARDIS being a police box, even though it took that shape when Doctor1 first got to earth, and Jack Harkness' "death")

So after seeing a Doctor Who episode over BBC America's marathon, I've decided to start watching this show. But the question is, where to begin? I've read somewhere that one should start on the new Doctor's seasons (2010 and onward), but the competitionist in me wants to go back to the revival at 2005.

Go back to the 2005 series. The Rose Tyler stuff is important for later episodes.
post #299 of 350
I would agree that 2005 is the start of worthwhile Doctor Who, but for me they only got great again once Tennant was in charge. I re-watched every single episode a few months ago, and kinda had to force myself through Ecclestone's seasons.

Some of the early Eccleston stuff just isn't good. His first episode alone is enough to turn off new watchers of Who. I generally recommend starting with the 10th or 11th and then go back and watch Eccleston's run when done.
