Sci Fi

Dr WHO???!!

By popular request - here's a place to discuss your favourite Sci Fi stuff. (Can anyone think of a better word than "stuff"?)

I liked the Dalek edition, which I guess was the final one. It was nice to see the old adversaries again, but the ending was a little weak when the Doctor metemorphasised. :)

Graeme, I watched the last few episodes with my 9 year -old grandsons and they loved it. Having not seen the first few, or watched any of the originals, they needed a bit of catching up on things. They are waiting now for the next series.

I think I've become jaded, because the series just didn't make a big smash with me. But then, I probably will watch the next series, so who knows...maybe it made more of an impression than I thought.

Well, the new Dr Who series opener was on last night, and the world was once again saved from destruction and alien domination...with the help of a cup of tea.

Hi JaJ, I saw the dr Who show last night and although it was bit twee, I thought it was pretty good. Once again a cup of tea solves the problem who'd have thunk it?

Saw the new (ish) show Monday night. It was with the new Dr (sorry, I forgot his name) and I quite like him. I've almost forgotten what the other one looked like. I suppose if he was someone more familiar to me I would remember him. :? Rose was Rose, though. And that nasty piece of skin, Cassandra, was there...who'd have thought, eh? Anyway, just how far behind are we here in the colony?

Well, the first show of the series without Billie Piper was on two nights ago. Title was "Smith and Jones", I believe. It featured aliens who looked liked rhinos. Not the best storyline, either, but I'm sure I'll watch it again, nonetheless.

I liked the idea of Plasmavores and an intergalactic police force (even if they did look like rhinos), as you say the story was a bit weak, but I'm sure to watch again, and again :lol:

I think we have plasmavores working in the hospital laboratory, they never seem to get enough of that red stuff.

Ah yes, but do they use straws, Graeme? :wink:
