Re: Doctor Who - Season 3 [spoilers]

Which Rose opened at the end of S1 (I always assumed the Eye of Harmony and the Heart of the Tardis were one and the same...)

The Master has been killed many times before, being swallowed by the Eye of the Tardis might even be beneficial to the Master, giving him new knowledge and power (Does Canon give credence to the Paul McGann movie since it messed with some established stuff?).

When did Romana become President of Galifrey? Was that an Audio drama or Book? Peter Davison at the end of the 5 Doctors and Colin Baker at the end of the Trial of a Timelord were re-appointed President. I thought David Tennant's comment early in S2 revival that he was President meant he still was officially with someone else filling his shoes "while he was away travelling in his Tardis"?

To my knowledge, which isn't encyclopaedic, the 1996 TVM is the only occasion on which the Eye of Harmony has resided in the TARDIS with the Doctor ... the heart of the TARDIS is (I believe) something else entirely.

The Master has previously tried to gain access to the Eye of Harmony in order to get access to a new cycle of regenerations ... having used up all of his ... so being swallowed up by it may not necessarily be his end.

And the TVM is certainly considered canon to the extent that Paul McGann is officially considered to be the 8th Doctor.

IIRC, there is one thing about the TV movie that has officially been de-canonified - that the doctor is half-human.

What were your feelings about that Chilli as a matter of interest?

Romana being president is certainly in the books. It is also in the "Shada" webcast. The BBC webcast can be played using the following link.

I thought it was completely stupid - it just made no sense in connection with the previous seven incarnations of the doctor, and just seemed there to make him more likable or something .. because someone in some ways human is obviously more likable than someone entirely alien.

I honestly don't know if that was the intention, or if it was considered necessary to appeal to the American market (the TV movie in general was just so .. American. Which makes it very .. non-DW), but considering how out of nowhere it came, I do have to speculate. Or if they were trying to make him "like Spock" or something. Which still seems stupid to me - and I'm Spock's ultimate fanboy.

Re: Doctor Who - Season 3 [spoilers]

I also agree, it was a toss idea. Glad its gone.

I too didn't like they made him half human, but, isn't there some canon somewhere that makes Susan part Human, meaning she got her Hman from somewhere.

So Romana would've been President and on Gallifrey when the Time War hit, eh? Too bad, since we are getting close to the Dr's last regeneration (He's on his 9th Regen/10th life, and the last one, the Valleyard is evil, so they can only regen him twice more, or come up with something creative) I was hoping that one day she might take over the Dr. Who universe.

Did you know Lalla Ward is married to Richard Dawkins ? He must have something going for him...
