    Dr Who

    Overhyped shyte, unmissable tv, fun escapism?

    I haven’t watched an episode since whoever it was before Jon Pertwee

    Am I missing something good?

    Does it still scare the shit out of young kids, as it used to do in the Dalek heyday?

    Getting saturation coverage pre tonight’s episode.

      I hope its good, otherwise the haters will have a reason to pour scorn on the new doctor and show runner.

      All personal opinions, really. Check it out tonight and find out.

      I enjoyed the show as a kid (while I remember a bit of Peter Davison, and a bit of Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy was my doctor). I remember enjoying the TV movie with Paul McGann. I lost interest early in Christopher Eccleston's run, but got back into it with David Tennant, and early Matt Smith. Started to lose a bit of interest late in Matt Smith's run, but kept watching out of habit, felt like Peter Capaldi didn't really click until he had pretty much decided to quit, then enjoyed the end of his run.

      Most opinions will be based on the last run of the show which was a different writer, different cast, I'm not sure any of us know if it's going to be any good, but personally I'm looking forward to finding out.

      It went off when Tennant and Russell T Davis left.

      I have very low expectations of today's episode.

      Looks pretty ominous for Sheffield so what will become of 'Massive' and 'Red Massive'? About to be devoured by some sort of transformer type android....a bit like Zaha only better looking and less prone to falling over......

      Was a bit young when William Hartnell played him but I vaguely remember seeing the odd episode. I got into it more with Patrick Troughton but the memory is still a bit vague but I remember the regeneration episode into Jon Pertwee really vividly. The Pertwee era is the one I really remember the best together with the characters, Jo Grant, the Brigadier and the Master. I then watched Tom Baker for a bit then gave up halfway through his tenure. Didn't bother with any of the Doctors after that until the series finished in 1986. Then when the series relaunched in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston my daughter was 8 so I told her how I had grown up with Dr Who and it became a father daughter routine every saturday night and we watched every episode together and I really enjoyed it especially the World War 2 set double episode "The Empty Child" which was really creepy. I carried on watching with David Tennant, again with my daughter but didn't really bother after that. My daughter's now 21 and a student in Sheffield so she is interested purely from that perspective as that is where the new series is set.
