A movie plex by my place is showing it on the big screen. It will be after the date but should be fun.

Dang it, just linked it on the other thread thinking that I was the first to post- sorry

Finally get to see the Time War; I wonder if it will open with the war or we get a series of flashbacks?

I have to completely agree there.
"Any sufficiently rigorously defined magic is indistinguishable from technology."  - Larry Niven... far too appropriate at times here.

...but sometimes making sure you turn their ace into red paste is more important than friends.

Do not offend the chair leg of truth.  It is wise and terrible.

The GM is only right for as long as the facts back him up.

I have no problems with Rose, but I'm weird like that.  Having said that, the only thing I'll add is the fact that The Moment is at hand.

Grooooan!!!

I don't have any problem with Rose either, its just that they've brought her back too many times IMHO.

I'm going to be honest here. I never liked her to begin with in her original run. That the series then spent the entirety of Martha and Donna's run as companions basically talking them down while pointing out that she was a far more wonderful human being than they could ever be was maddening, and going out of their way to bring her back at every opportunity was even worse. She's one of the reasons i gave up on New Who.

I totally get where you coming from. I think Rose is cool and pretty BA. BUT I just have a problem with the Doctor falling in love with anyone. I grew up watching stories from the classic Who and I can't see any of those Doctors falling in love with a human (or anyone else for that matter). The Eighth Doctor...maybe but then again he was written by committee, so...
Also the way the Doctor treated Martha was actually pretty horrible. "Yes I know you are falling for me, but I'm just going to ignore that and continue to pine away for the last girl."
What is it with the companion always has to fall in love with the Doctor now anyway? Rose, Martha (Donna thankfully escaped this), Amy, Clara seems to have escaped this as well. I certainly hope that the next one won't.  :P

Rose did outstay her welcome but I'm not as up in arms about her return as others.  Donna wasn't bad but the writers did tend to treat her as baggage a little too often.  And yeah I'd love to see a trend towards people who work together of appropriate sexual disposition not fall in love.

Comrades, not lovers.  Hear hear, I think the MUST HAVE ROMANCE PLOT that's in everything cheapens a lot of shows.

To be fair I liked River for her attitude and way she interacted with The Doctor. Like Donna she was not intiminated by him while actually doing well whole love intrest part unlike Rose and Martha. And before anyone asks yes, I did also like Amy and Clara. But River was special since she was partial Time Lord.

Oh cool! Thanks. (Had seen that one but couldn't find it on YouTube.  >:()


Sooo I've heard it said both ways, but do you think the 10th is a "past" Doctor or is it the Half-Doctor left with Rose?

Wouldn't that be a world without Turn Left in it?  And everything that came about since?  Or am I thinking backwards...

Considering all the differences of that world, I don't think "Turn Left" matters all that much.

I don't think so; I believe that it just takes place during an event that grabs Doctors from different points in Time. This has happened before with "The Five Doctors" and the brief 5th and 10th Doctor mini episode.

Now I am curious to how much of the Time War we will see as well as the "Moment" that ended the war.

The 3D theatrical simulcast is on my littl' Whovian daughter's tenth birthday. Add the fact that we cut cable about two-ish months ago and no longer have BBC America it made this year's present a no-brainer.

The trick will be avoiding the internet for two days.  #P

You all understand if there is a 'Forgotten' Doctor then our good Doctor Who has used up all his regenerations now. A hidden Doctor would give us Twelve known Doctors and as we all know Gallifriens only have twelve regenerations, well except the Master who somehow got a thirteenth.

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.
