This is the thread for Doctor Who, and I'd like to say that it should encompass the entire show. From William Hartnell to the present.
It occurred to me that it might be a good idea to list all of the Doctors so here goes.
First Doctor-William Harntell Second Doctor-Partick Troughton Third Doctor-John Pertwee Fourth Doctor-Tom Baker Fifth Doctor-Peter Davison Sixth Doctor-Colin Baker Seventh Doctor-Sylvester McCoy Eighth Doctor-Paul McGann Ninth Doctor-Christopher Eccleston Tenth Doctor (Arguably Best)-David Tennant Eleventh Doctor (Current)-Matt Smith
Other Doctors: Shalka Doctor-Richard E Grant The Doctors in the 1999 BBC Telethon Miniseries- Rowan Atkinson, Richard E Grant, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant, Joanna Lumley. The Doctor from Dr. Who and the Daleks-Peter Cushing
Pictured below are only the Eleven Main Doctors. The others garner an honorable mention, but little more than that.
Right, caught up on the show now... fantastic! So far Amy is my favorite companion, and since they have their audience with the Davies stuff, they can do whatever with Moffat, and its officially seems to be what it was for the first 30 years: Gonna bring in a Doctor, they'll leave for one reason or another, then they'll get the next guy, likewise with the companions.
What I want to see more than anything else: Matt Smith finds himself back in the time war, and he meets up with the Paul MgGann Doctor, and we see what lead to him becoming Eccleston. We fill that one big gap in info, and it doesn't have to be "Explain all" we could just get a sample of what it was like for The Doctor then.
And I still have a Who-fever going, and need a bit of a fix. Anyone know any great episodes from the Baker(s), Davison, McCoy, etc.?
There's one of Peter Davison called Caves of the Adzonai? Adonai? Its Davison's last episode and Colin Baker's introduction. I enjoyed it quite a bit. And The Three Doctors was really fun. It was Pertwee, Troughton, and Hartnell.
Yeah, I liked it mostly for the chemistry between Pertwee and Troughton. Mostly because of Troughton though. I loved it when he just randomly started playing the recorder. I don't know why, but it made me laugh.
Watching some clips from Troughton's years, I doubt I'd actually enjoy his Doctor, I think he'd be a bit of a douche, but ya, seeing his back and forth's with Pertwee made the episode (And I really like how Omega only exists out of sheer will)
And one thing (I know you posted this a long time ago, but I just watched Matt Smith's season and felt like coming on here) about that idea for the Time War Special or story arc: It would be awesome to see it, but McGann is a little long in the tooth for it. I'd rather they have do McGann to Ecccleston in the beginning and then run with Smith and Eccleston fighting the Time War.
Oh and if you still need a Doctor Who fix, there's an audio drama that started in 1983 that has all 233 episodes on ITunes. I believe it starts with either McCoy or McGann and goes all the way to either Tennant or Smith.
Calling all Who Fans! Tomorrow, Christmas Day, Matt Smith's first Doctor Who Christmas Special is airing at 9 PM Eastern Time, and 8 PM Central Time on BBC America. If you're in the UK, apologies, I have no idea what time it airs there, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out since The Doctor is much more prescient on your side of the pond.
The christmas special was excellent. Not only was it a brilliant Christmas special but it was one of the best episodes I've ever seen. Highly emotional with the typical wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. Honestly it was the best gift that I got this christmas.
