Dr Who ping
I will be VERY curious as to the identity of Twelve, and the direction in which the adventure will take.
50 years of Dr Who.
after 12 regenerations, he’s gonna need another body...why not Clara aka Jenna Louise-Coleman? She’s traveled his tieline and the memories would be intact...
Back in the day ...
Doctor Who was on PBS, but I lived in some areas that would get only 1 or 2 TV channels. So, I never really got into the Doctor Who craze.
I got cable in late 2002. I watched a program called Special Unit 2. It was an off-shoot of the Men in Black genre — aliens living among us. Then, I heard about Torchwood, which was similar. I started watching it. It revealed a lot about the Doctor Who history.
I also started watching the Sarah Jane Adventures [kid show but still entertaining], which were more of the aliens among us. [I didn’t know it at the time, but Sarah Jane was one of the companions in the old Doctor Who series.]
From all that, I got interested in Doctor Who (the newly revised series with David Tennant) which was running on the SciFi channel. I went back to the start of the renewal with Christopher Eccleston and began watching.
Considering the state of science fiction on TV and in the movies, the Doctor Who series is better than most.
They’ve already disclosed it on British TV. I can tell you if you want to know.
Christopher Eccleston is still my favorite Dr
I like the ideas of Natalia Tena and Andrew Potts, as well.
Rupert Grint!? The Doctor is a ginger at last - and a Weasley...
There's now a four hour difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones? Did California move even further to the left when we weren't looking? :-)
I need a new keyboard.
WHO cares? < /wiseguy response >
I think I watched the whole season...but your mention of Clara made me wonder if I missed something. Did they ever disclose who Clara really was and how she had “died” more than once? If they did, I missed it :)
Obviously a typo. Should be PST, not PDT...
“Did they ever disclose who Clara really was and how she had died more than once? If they did, I missed it :)”
this is going to be very anti-clmactic isn’t it?

Cover all the bases, and call it PTSD...
Peter Davison (5th Doctor) on now. David Tennant’s father-in-law.
What happened to Matt Smith’s hair???
He’s shooting a movie in LA now.
They still make movies in LA?
Cannot access the live stream. It is swamped.
Some studio parts. Locations for this one one are oddly enough in Detroit but it’s not a war or wasteland movie.
He is neither gay nor a Muslim.
Peter Capaldi at IMDB:
what kind if tax credit did they get to put it there?
The modern day Clara stepped into the rip in space-time that was left after the Doctor’s final death, trying to save him from the “Great Intelligence” creature that stepped in and started killing him at all points in his life.
She then was recreated over and over again through time, creating multiple Claras that we’ve seen over the show.
Capaldi is a great choice.
And in the movie "World War Z", he played a W.H.O. doctor - ironic?
I saw that. Very ironic!
I liked him in the Fires of Pompeii, and he was the best part of Torchwood: Childrn of Earth.
Not sure how to make this pic smaller:
When I saw Torchwood and Pompeii, then the shoe dropped. A great choice!
He resembles Hartnell in many ways...only a younger version... hmmm...grow the hair out...whiten it... is the Doctor’s existence circular?
Shipes, now I’m sounding like all of the other Whovian speculators...
That screwdriver has got to go. Overcompensating much?
Just get a Frickin’ electric torch, why don’t you?
I’ll have to watch it, maybe I missed that one and that’s why I couldn’t figure it out.
Thanks for the info.
Looks good, i hope they tone down the romantic stuff.
Wow, I followed exactly the same discovery process. Weird.
Well, he’s old enough to be Jenna Louise Coleman’s father, so I hope so.
