Tom Baker (4th doctor) >>>>>> any other doctor

I've been going through a lot of the classic Doctor who (the ones I can find anyhow) and I liked Tom Baker quite a bit. Certainly my favorite from the classic series. It's tough to judge against the new series because it's really a different show in the sense that they have some quarters to rub together for production but my favorite all around is David Tennant. (Honorable mention to McCoy)

The old original series were dragged out too long, because they were too cheap to make more complete stories with new scenes, so what should have been condensed into one 45-minute episode were dragged out over four 22-minute episodes (even worse for the early black and white episodes). I'm sure Tom would look better if he worked with the new high budget fast paced format.

Haven't checked back to this thread for a while. For anybody that wants a Doctor Who fix, go here: http://doctorwhotv.co.uk/

They usually update several times a day with reviews, speculation, spoilers, etc.

I'll change the poll too. It's outdated.

I love Sci- Fi as well as British humour and sensibilities but I have never felt Dr Who was even mildly entertaining. For the record, I didn't like Firefly either.

Just want to showcase these. I love music videos that really work. The two videos actually have two different versions of Hall of Fame. One version has Will.i.am, the other doesn't, and the two or three lines leading into the hook are different in each version.

Technically wasn't her full name. Didn't include the Oswin. But yeah, a real parent probably wouldn't have said her name at all, just scolded her for talking to the strange man.

Decent episode. Not quite up to the hype but at least the resolution was well thought out. So it seems that this Clara's middle name isn't Oswin. And I wonder what the Doctor did with the Spoonhead Doctor afterwards.

How about spoiler tags for those who have yet to see the episode??

Is it just me, or has the quality of Doctor Who gone down after Matt Smith's first season (which was great)? At first I attributed this to Amy and Rory overstaying their welcome (three season's for companions). However, after Saturday's episode, I'm beginning to think that the writers have lost their "mojo", for lack of a better word. Last season was very forgettable, and the previous season had one terrific episode (written by Neil Gaiman). Hopefully the premiere is just a one off on what will be a great season, because Saturday's episode was a snorefest.

it's not just you. I personally think it's part "Smith" and part writing. He's just not commanding enough (he has his moments) to make you feel like he's in charge... he feels more like just a smart companion. I thought it was due to Amy, but I still see it without her now.

It's not "garbage" but it feels more like a "well... this is just for now, till we figure things out."

Again, I may be in the minority, but I think one of the main problems is that they are keeping Smith's version of the Doctor very one dimensional. This usually changes, as David Tennant version was different in his last 2 seasons then in his first season (the departure of Rose really changed him). Don't get me wrong, I like Smith's version a lot, but he hasn't really changed or been affected a great deal.I'm probably more critical of Doctor Who now than I was before because Moffat's other series, Sherlock, is not only infinitely better, but acted by Moffat's first choice as the new Doctor before Matt Smith was chosen.

The 12th Doctor will be revealed on Sunday at 11 am PT. I don't have BBC1 or BBC America so unless Space decides to show it, I won't get to see the announcement.
