It's an automatic feature of the forum software to split threads and lock the old ones. I appreciate it because eventually it becomes nearly impossible to navigate threads and find specific posts from the past.

Hey! I want to be a Moderator! If a Scotshobbit is eligible, surely I'm more than qualified... I mean... because I'm a respectable hobbit... I'm not suggesting I have equally (or superior!) vulgar habits as Mr Tyrant does! Extremely Crabbit

That was a genuine People Republic of Forumshire Uprising, you should thank me that I led it so well until your return..... and overwhelming victory. (And Im sure I saw the Banks company stamp on the butt cheeks of all those trolls you mysteriously had)

From Doctor Who Confidential: RTD and Moffat give their thoughts on the first 8 Doctors, the actors who played them and what aspects they brought to the Doctor.



It occured to me whilst watching that RTD's era and Pertwee's, neither of which are among my personnal favourite periods, that both share something in common. They were the right thing for their times- Pertwee's Doctor was in a world of James Bond, Bruce Lee and the like- it fitted the times but not all of it my own tastes. But without it being like that at that time the show might not have stayed popular and could have ended.
Similarly RTD's worked perfectly in terms of re-establishing the show as quality TV, not some cheap geek sideshow it had become during the Colin Baker/McCoy years.
By grounding it in Roses everyday life, bringing her family into it, featuring domestic situations and setting the majority of the early stories on Earth (usually in London) it got people who previoulsy didn't think to watch a sci-fi watching and hooked.

But whilst some of my all time favourite Doctor Who moments are in the RTD era, there is are few entire episodes I enjoy, moments of pure genius are next to get out jail free scripting ploys. Characters like Mickey are thinly drawn with no purpose but to serve as contrast to Rose, as Kafria said. There are just to many jarring moments for me.

And that would seem Mrs Figg to be how you feel about the Moffat era. I'm afraid thats just the way it is with Who, to survive it reflects its times-Moffats Who is like our world: a lot of information that seems confusing and comes at you from all directions fast. Moffats Doctor is the man who can take all that in, work out whats it all really means and then sort it out and incorporate it into a joke (with diagram). Very Happy


Nice fan vid for the anniversary with all the Doctors

In many ways Rory is the doctor learning from the mistakes he made where Mickey (and Rose) was concerned.
