    I Love Doctor Who, have since the mid 80's when I was a 6 year old kid watching it on the local PBS station.

    Not sure when it will start airing down under but in the US we have 4 episodes left.

    The series finale has been and gone over here in the UK... 65min special to close it all up for you awaits. All I'll say is that as much as the final 2-parter is good, it's very very cramped and could have done with being a 3-parter.

    Roll on the Christmas special with the Cybermen that's all I'm saying! :P

    EDIT: Also, sorry to sound so pedantic... but should the official thread for Doctor Who on here really be called THE DOCTOR WHO STUFF THREAD? Doesn't sound too official really... I'd have thought "The Official Doctor Who Thread" would sound more, well... official? lol.

    Just a suggestion of course, if we're going to make this thread successful etc.

    I am a huge fan as well. I used to watch it with my dad during
    the 80s. It was one of the few times I could stay up late.. I
    have since rediscovered my likeness for it. I watch both Old
    series and New series. ( Hence my Delgado ava with Simms
    sig. well I haven't got my Delgado sig made yet so...)

    I love the classic Doctor Who, especially the Tom Baker era. We have the whole Key to Time series segment on DVD. My grandfather and uncle taped almost every single episode, including the very first, "An Unearthly Child." I remember when the show was on PBS.

    I like this new version of Doctor Who okay, but I would like it more if it wasn't for the RoseXDoctor shippines in the new series. I'm old school, and I feel that the writers should not make an entire story arc involving the Doctor having a romantic relationship with a companion. Rose is likable, but the whole romance thing that started up rubs me the wrong way. I find it nauseating.

    Episodes of the new series that I really like include "Blink," several episodes of the current season, and "The End of the World," with Christopher Eccleston. I find Eccleston to be an awesome Doctor.

    well the whole arc wasn't about their relationship, yeah she was in love with him and yeah he believes he could love her but the Rose arc was more about something else which is revealed in the season finale of the forth series

    I admit, I'm a fan and watch the series when I can, but I feel like Eccleston was more of a childish fun loving take on the doctor, focusing more on the fact he can go anywhere, meet anyone and that Tennant put in a more serious, emotional variety of takes, from the lonely last of his kind to an all knowing sly fox who can get himself and his friends out of most situations.
    I enjoy some of the classics when they're on too.

    I'm not a HARDCOOOOOOOOORE fan though.

    Well I'm more a Whovian than a hardcore fan, the sci-fi geek type who one day WILL go to a convention whether people like it or not haha! The type who has a replica [not plastic] Fob Watch as used in the 3rd series of the current format etc... so yeah, I doubt even hardcore covers myself! :P

    Series 4 [or 30 depending on how you want to look at it] is rather hit and miss in my opinion... there are some fantastic episodes during it's run [Silence in the Library springs to mind], yet there were some absolutley rubbish ones at the same time [Midnight anyone?].

    I personally think the best modern series so far is the second, although Donna is a superb companion, the original run for Rose was just sheer brilliance with Tennant. Episodes like New Earth, Girl in the Fireplace, Doomsday... all classics, a quality they sadly seem to have not matched since. It's been good don't get me wrong, but no series has been consistant as that one.

    And while you're all watching series 4... I can now only look forward to Return of the Cyberman at Christmas, and then a measily 3 episodes next year... hmph!

    i became a pretty fair fan of the series, recently... like real recently.
    maybe a few months ago.

    like the series. it's fun to watch.
    good twist and plot and humor.

    heck i even grew out my sideburns (i don't usually do that) it relates to doctor who, trust me. just a long story that no one would want to hear/read.

    The thread is still on page one after a month. If this is your standard for doing well, you really set the bar low.
