Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Saw the episode the Doctors Daughter, thought the episode was pretty good, Jenny was cool. Sontarans vs Daleks who wins this? I say the Daleks are going to have some problems against the Sontarans. maybe militarily they've met an enemy that doesn't fear death loves battle, has nasty military technology capability and can clone in huge numbers and is every bit as arrogant as they are, should be fun to watch. According to what I have been reading we may get that particular war.

Spoiler for Season 4 episode 6:

We do not know what happen there. Possibly Timelords have to be taught how to regenerate, with a backup system kicking in after a few hours.

The actress said she spent 4 months learning karate for the part. I suspect she believes that is is the start of a spinoff series.


Since people in the USA are 2 weeks behind it would be nice if everything was in spoiler boxes until they have had time to watch the episode.

To make spoiler boxes type
[ spoiler=Season x episode y ]
text
[ /spoiler ]

leaving out the spaces.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

That's cool I keep forgetting how to do that... itv would be nice if the spoiler code could be added as a button.

Theoretically some spoiler code in the lost and galactica threads would be nice (though I'm personally no bothered as I merrily blunder in there anyway)

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

I did a brief glancing through, and caught one thing: the USA is two weeks or so behind your schedule ONLY if they get a certain channel. Those of us waiting on Sci-Fi channel have just seen the Oot planet episode, from your previous season. So even in the USA some are seeing the show a season ahead of others of us.

Just to let you know how complicated avoiding spoilers would be.

That's why I say it's pretty much up to us Sci-Fi viewers to avoid/skip/or quick-scan all posts.

About all I have to say after Friday's episode (the Oot one) is that I like the running joke they have established of people mistaking the Doctor and Donna for being husband and wife.

It kind of addresses (without saying anything) the unusual situation we have with a companion so close to him in age. Not that marriage can't happen between people of drastically different ages, it just usually doesn't, I guess.

And I like how they comically simultaneously try to correct people on that point, rathe uncomfortable.

They both can talk pretty fast, too, can't they? "Donna Doctor friend" started to sound like a bit of a rapid chant, there.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Sorry to nit-pick, but it's Ood.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Yea, t hat's right.

Sorry to nitpick, but that's not really nitpicking. That's a rather significant detail since it's both the name of the race and part of the title of the episode.

Thanks.

Hmm... the Ood planet episode with Donna was three episodes ago (as of yesterday). The current season, not the previous one. So if you had that on the Sci-Fi channel, then that means being 2-3 episodes behind.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

Really? Well, then we're closer to the original broadcast date than I realized. Yes, Friday's episode with Donna and the Doctor was the Ood planet episode (where we find out the Ood's translation devices were put in place of their exterior brains, humanity has enslaved the Ood, and the Oods' song was sung at the end of the episode.

We're seeing them closer to original airdates than I realized. Thanks for letting me kow.

Re: Dr Who - Season 30 (4)

I think it started airing only about two weeks after the UK in the US this year, so yes, there's very little delay. But I think it's the first time the delay's been that short, so no wonder you expected to be further behind!
