midds! Get off catmag's account! :lol:
Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

Better than Big Brother's Celebrity X Factor Get Me Out Here Dancing On Ice though.

Because the aliens were ''water''.

So water was really the enemy.

Aye, I liked Part 1.

It's going to be the most epic episode of the RTD/Tennant era, mainly because it's his last, and a chance to wrap everything up before Smith comes in.

Hope we get to explore Gallifrey a bit.

Not really a fan. Watched the first part and thought it was cack, tbh. Basically The Matrix without any of the good bits.

Hoping that the new faces will mean that it becomes a bit darker and ditches the cringe-worthy camp humour that's become more and more prevalent since it's return. Dr Who should be predominantly scary, with the odd laugh thrown in, not the other way around. Also the focus needs to be taken off the companions, they've become way too central to the story and it's a shame that it's become yet another addition to our celebrity-arse-kissing culture. Better story-lines from now on please, I couldn't give a s*** who the co-stars are!

Remember it is essentially a family/kid-friendly show; which explains the camp/cringe stuff that we see most of the time.

It was also essentially a family/kid friendly show when I was one too, yet it still scared the s*** out of me on occasion, I'd be really surprised if it scared anyone (no matter how young) any more.

I think Russell Davies only knows one way to write and that's camp comedy, there's nothing wrong with that in itself, but I'm bored of it now, can we have something else please?

Tbh, he can also write depressing gay stuff, so he's got quite a range.

The guy who has taken over wrote the one truly scary Dr Who episode. The one with the statues that move when you blink.

The actor Bernard Cribbins is 81 today; that's mental. He probably doesn't even think he's acting, he genuinely thinks he's travelling with the Doctor :lol:

Apparently they are rebranding it again.

So it wont be series 5 it will be series 1.

Hence the new logo and insignia...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/s4/features/videos/video_new_logo_02

No, it will be series 5, it's just that everything is getting refreshed like they did thoughout the classic series, also all the things RTD did will be undone, like the death of the Timelords, it will all be undone so that they are free to come back if Moffat wants to, it will still be different, but it will still be a continuation of what has happend over the last few years.

The Timelords coming back in part 2 are not going to be good guys like the Dr has given the impression of them to be, they are going to mad timelords, almost master and Dr at the end of Waters of Mars like.

True - there's a few things that need explaining as well. The Immortality Gate seemed to a bit of a flimsy concept.

Either way, looking forward to seeing how everything will come together. Should be very good.

I think the production team pretty much perfectly wrapped up the RTD/Tennant era - especially loved the bits at the end of him saying goodbye to the ones he held dearest, with various acts of selflessness.

But at the same time, I'm looking forward to Smith's portrayal, and refreshing new adventures (hopefully).

Aye. Agree that it was all ended very well.
I just feel a bit sorry for Matt Smith because it felt like it was the end of the actual programme and not just David Tennants stint as The Doctor. Feels like there could be a lot of pressure on him. Hope he carries it off ok.
