The Newly Regenerated Doctor Who Thread

posted by Friar on - last edited - Viewed by 102.2K users
So, Christmas is approaching, and with it a brand new Doctor who episode, and seeing as it's no longer series 5, I thought it would be time for a new, more generalised Doctor who thread!

For those who are new to the series, It features a humanoid Alien (timelord) called the Doctor, who travels in time and space in the TARDIS. He's the last of his race, and when he dies, he regenerates into a new person (up to 13 times). So far he has done so 11 times, with the current, 11th doctor being Matt Smith.

To kick things off, here's a trailer for the new Doctor who ipod/iphone/ipad/android game: The mazes of time!

  • Gah! I give up! There's no way that I'll be able to choose my favorite Doctor. I love them all!
  • Something I really didn't like about the tenth doc is the way he'd just go on and on with this science jargon. I understand its a sci-fi show I'm willing to suspend my sense of disbelief for an hour.
    Also a thought if the Doctor is always getting younger how would people feel about an older regeneration? I wouldn't be in favor of it, I prefer the Doctors that have a more patriarchal role with characters.

    IMO Christopher Eccleston was the best Doctor, he's the only one who had the dress sense that fit in with the "blend in with everyday people" thing they were aiming for in Series 1, not only that but I do like The Doctor when he's more serious and starts crossing over into darker territory, and Series 1 had a good load of that and Chris's acting just topped it off, he was the perfect choice for bringing back Doctor who to the public and showing a more serious and yet natural side to a character that was often looked at as something only geeks would watch in the 1970's and 1980's.

    Don't get me wrong, I did like David, but I really do think that IF he was there from the start, it would turned people off the show, because his Doctor was far too, well, happy, giddy, running around grinning like a nut case and just generally bouncing around the place, and to be honest, brought back some of that geek factor.

    New Audience wise, it was a great idea to show the character back after all these years but is now a tortured soul, blames himself, more in tune with his emotions and control and showing him return to his "old" ways once he got back with a human companion and started travelling around again, before showing him willing to sacrifice himself and eventually doing so in the events that happens in the Series 1 finale, showing him letting go of all that guilt, which made sense that after he regenerated he would be more up beat and giddy.

    ^This pretty much summed up my feelings about Nine.
  • Why isnt The Watcher, The Valeyard or The Dream Lord on here?
  • When I saw that this thread was made by a user named "Friar", an idea popped into my head;

    What if they held a roast of The Doctor? All of the Doctor's past companions and historical figures making fun of him and each other? I'd watch that.
  • *booming wrathful voice* FRIIIIAAAARRRR!

    Your fan-ness of Dr. Who set me down this path... and now here I am, glued to the TV as I tear through the series from "Rose" forward. :p If my 360 RRODs from being on all day to stream this show, I'm sending you the repair bill, hahaha.

    Seriously though, this show is amazing.
  • Not to be picky but the Doctor would of regenerated 10 times not 11, ie 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, 9-10, 10-11.

    You forgot 10->10. TBH, i woud have do, had I not watched the episode the night before.

    @StLouisRibs: Heh heh heh. Are you trying to get them all watched before christmas? Thats when the next episode is (both in the UK and in the states this year). Anyway, Good luck, and don't be put off by some of the rubbish ones (namely love & monsters, and Midnight). Be sure to watch this after series 3 (but before Voyage of the Damned!

    As for the adventure games: As they stand, I wouldn't pay more than£7.50(About $12)for them. The final episode, "Shadows of the Vashta Nerada" will be out on Christmas, and hopefully, that'll change things!

    Also, this was spotted in Wales the other day. 22 TARDIS's!
  • oh, I've hopped around the series a bit. I've seen almost all the Tennant episodes, and can't stand Eccelsten aside from the RTD and Moffat episodes. I've only seen 2 Series 5 Episodes because Netflix doesn't have permission to stream it yet, and also is removing Series 1-3
