We have a new Doctor...
« on: July 16, 2017, 06:58:10 PM »
...and it ain't one like the ones we've had before.

I'm on board with this.  I always have a policy of giving the new Doctor a fair chance anyway.  And the first encounter with Missy ought to be interesting.  :D

Please let it be Gal Gadot.

It was inevitable given the Master/Missy's trans-*coughs*-formation.

But who will be the new Master?  Missy has gone missing.

I'll reserve thoughts on it for now. Makes me wonder how their play up any romantic involvement, or sudo romance as is the doctors way

I want there to be none.  That was the reason I hated the direction they went with Tennant and Billie Piper.  That's where I draw my line -- not at the gender or color of the Doctor, but that it's not a romance.  The original intention of the show was to be at least partly educational -- they were going to alternate stories between future/science fictional and historical, and try to keep the science and the history more or less right.  Well, along came those psychotic pepper pots and that idea went away.

I had to look up Gal Godot -- she was unlikely in the extreme; I think the BBC has an informal (and maybe even a formal) rule that the Doctor shall be an actor from Great Britain.  All fourteen have been from England or Scotland, including Hurt and Whittaker.

Well its subjective, I always liked the rose and doctor storyline, even got kinda weepy how that ended. I also really liked Donna Noble, but probably because I'm a fan of Catherine Tate

Loved Donna, probably my favorite companion of New Who, or at worst second to Captain Jack.

Hate RTD for what he did to her.  Yeah, let's put her on a season-long personal journey and watch her grow and develop as a character, then reset her right back to the rather unpleasant person she was before all that development.  That was where I reached the "don't let the door hit you in the ass" point with RTD.

Yeah that did suck, guess they always look for creative ways to expire companions, just this time it was very finale for her without killing her.

Let the new Doctor have no connection to the past.  No old friends to visit.  Just start new.  And dress bizarrely...

The good Doctor seems to be getting younger and younger over time.
If this trend continues, is the Doctor soon to become a sperm and egg?

I don't trust them. One of them turned out to be a Deatheater.
