    Do you know why the one Flesh girl turned into the dog monster thing? They didn't really explain that.

    I think it was just her letting "the flesh" take over her human part. They showed in both episodes that the rebel flesh kinda fluctuated between "flesh" and human and could kinda control it. It seemed that rage sorta allowed the "rebel flesh" to take over. I don't think it was that far fetched tbh. The first part of the episode she was freaking out and showed the flesh had some kinds of superhuman abilities.

    It's worth it to just start with the start of the reboot with eccelston and go from there

    Will do.

    I honestly was blown away how much I liked the season. The tone was almost perfect for what they were trying to go for and I found myself [​IMG] with the lead actress.

    You will notice seasons 1-5 having a few "throaway" episodes though where the plot kinda meanders and centers more around something like "wouldn't it be cool to meat agatha christie" sorta thing. It's still a really enjoyable first 5 seasons though with some episodes that you get super invested in.

    I prefer Eccleston over Tennant but I know I'm in the minority with that one.

    Ya .. Tennant > Smith > Eccelston. But all three are very awesome in their own right.

    Season 3 was my favourite .. Tennant, and Freema Agyeman [​IMG].

    +Fack! I mean, I kind of figured it once the baby came into play, but it was still a hell of an episode.

    I thought that too. I didnt know they would split them up, so I was expecting the normal 13 epsiode season. Its probably to do with the fact that is started later than usual, and they didnt want to waste episode during the summer periode, when people tend to watch less tv... At least they probably do when dr. who airs on saturday around 7...

    I'd almost rather it this way then how they do most of the fall network shows. With random breaks ranging from 2 weeks to a month off between episodes. Big Bang/How I Met Your Mother was ****ing annoying this past fall. Come September, it'll give me an excuse to watch the first 6 again in build up for the start of the 2nd half of the season.

    DR. Who got renewed for another season. http://www.aintitcool.com/node/49938
    Not surprising. The weeks leading up to the season premier Dr. Who was getting some pretty serious ad time here in Canada. Like NHL Playoff commercial time.

    With the dark and creepy direction they're going in, it'll be sensible to have it on in the fall, rather than in the sunny days of summer.

    Can't wait for the first ep of the fall. Let's kill Hitler!
