Doctor Who - Season 3 [spoilers]

So,

How many of the Brits - or cheaters - watching?

One episode in, I'm positively surprised this far. I generally liked season 1 of the new show, and generally disliked season 2 of the show, as I just couldn't stand the "chemistry" Tennant and Piper had (found it reminiscant of hormon-ridden school kids - yeaargh!) .. but, though I would have prfered if Catharine Tate/Donna had stayed along from the Runaway Bride, I do much prefer Martha - I do hope she keeps her no-shit attitude towards the doctor. It reminds me a bit of Romana I and the fourth doctor, which I also thought was a good pairing.

One question though .. can they honestly not afford a science advisor? .. we're going to fry earth, from the moon, with a standard hospital MRI scanner, operating on a hospital power generator. Yeah. Right. .. if I'm ever bored when at one of my universities - the medical universities - I might just pop over to the hospital and fry the planet.

Not to mention gravity ..

Spoilers









According to the Doctor Who Confidential programme it is going to be unrequited love. She loves him but he thinks of her as a friend.

Martha doesn't look too bad, just as long as they don't go back to her family too often. I don't watch Eastenders, so don't want it in Dr Who.

I might be going crazy, but I thought I saw Jason Carter in the background. Must go back and check the episode.

Re: Doctor Who - Season 3 [spoilers]

I did not notice anyone Jason Carter-like

Gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of gravity on earth. The whole corridor running scenes would have looked .. different

Of course, they couldn't have realistically made it look moon-like, but I was expecting .. at least a line .. of the Judoon compensating the gravity, or something. Whatever.

As for Martha's family .. I didn't mind it in this episode, as it served the purpose of showing just why she wants to LEAVE those crazy buggers. I could live without the return of those plot lines though - hello, space and time machine?

Good catch. The Sun has been heavily supporting Dr Who so we are stuck with Eastenders filmed in Wales.

Agreed, but that whole sequence was so obviously done as a pastiche of Eastenders. Its almost as if the Dr wonders into our usual normal dreary TV of people screaming at each other for no reason, and takes Martha (and thus the viewers) into something much more exciting and enjoyable. I loved that bit.

lets face it, recomissioning Dr Who (one of its oldest shows) has been the only vaguely creative decision its made in years. Only it can save us from DIY, house hunting and crass melodramatic soaps. That and bit-torrent...

I'm sure we will. Probably sometime in the Summer or Fall on SciFi channel.

Googling revealed that nothing is formal yet, but they expect a delay of something like 4 months.
