    So just checking to see who all is pumped up for the season 6 premier of Doctor Who this coming Saturday in the UK On BBC1 and in the USA on BBC America? Besides ProtoKun7 and I that is.

    Also post any thoughts or news on what is going to take place story wise this season.

    Well I consider myself a Dr Who fan - so curious to see what they come up with story wise
    Read a few 'leaks' in newspapers which don't seem that promising (I try not to read them - it spoils it for me)

    Apparently one of the 'major players' dies in the first episode
    I just hope they don't keep 'recycling' some of the more well known bad guys again, but maybe recycle some of the 'lesser' known ones..
    (beginning to get a little fed up with the final episodes always seems to contain Daleks/Cybermen etc..)

    Also wondering what the 'ongoing story' is gonna be this time ('stars going out'/Crack in time & space - what's next ??)......& will we EVER find out the [real] relationship between the Doctor & River Song ??

    I'm all ready to watch it. And for the first time I won't have to download it to see it right away since they are actually going to broadcast it on BBC America. Though I may still download it to skip the commercials. You Europeans are so lucky you don't have the VAST commercial B.S. we get over here. Because they will make the show shorter to put in the commercials. Aaarrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Haven't watched Doctor Who properly since season three. I got fed up of the show forcing other people's beliefs down my throat, particularly with regard to global warming.
    I loved the first season, Chris Eccleston was great. Second season was also pretty good. Third season...well, that Human-Dalek shit was awful, but I quite liked Simm's take on The Master.
    I caught the odd episode of season four here and there, and from those episodes I realised that the show was being targeted at a different audience. It was more childish, and while I generally like childish things, I don't feel that this style suited my favourite show (paha, the only show I watched) at all.
    Might give this season a try, but from what I've heard, Doctor Who still follows a formula that doesn't appeal to me.

    Gambia, The
    I can´t wait for Saturday or better said Sunday, I don´t get BBC here in Germany, so I´ll have to DL it =(
    I think it´s gonna be all about River and the Voice in this Series.
    Seen a trailer the last weeks with a short conversation between the Doctor and the Voice.
    Voice: "Fear me, I killed hundrets of Timelords."
    Doctor: "Fear me, I killed all of them."

    Just finished wwatching first episode - seems like some of the 'bits' I read I read in Newpaper articles were true.... but as usual with a twist

    Not sure about some things in the episode - & I'm not gonna (well try not to) spoil it for those who still got to see it but wasn't 'something' I saw in a previous episode of Dr Who??

    Hopefully I won't give to much away but Song & Rory were alone together in a seemily familiar place

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was!

    It was the the ship from The Lodger, wasn't it?

    Looks like another Proto-TARDIS. This one might work though this time though since Song put her hand on it and didn't die. It must have some connection since Moffat wouldn't blatantly use an old setpiece from just the last season without disguising at all unless it had some significance. The ship in The Lodger was never destroyed, it just went. Maybe Craig completed its time engine and it brought these things to Earth. Also, the Doctor still has keys for that flat.

    Really enjoyed the episode in general. Found the monsters incredibly creepy. They're almost on par with the Gas Masks from Season 1.

    Are you my mommy? (I also loved the episode, can't remember which one it was, where the Doctor said that (season 4 or 5 I think))

    But yeah, this episode was really cool (especially since Doc Who is back!) and I'm so damn looking forward to tomorrow, when episode 2 airs. [​IMG]

    Series 1 = Season 27.

    [/nitpick]

    Watched it earlier, and loved it (obviously [​IMG]).
    Really enjoyed the opening picnic scene; I could tell something would be different once the Doctor said he was 1,103 years old. His death scene was strangely enjoyable, mostly because of the "Reset Button" nature of it (by which I'm referring to the plot device used in shows where they can kill off major characters or do crazy things and then bring things back to normal afterwards).

    I just watched the episode. I noticed something interesting that I'll put in Spoiler tags.

    Song went to prison for killing the bast man she knew. The Doctor dies this episode, and he said he knew who it was in the suit. I think Song was the Astronaut. The reason she killed him will be revealed in the mid series finale(I'm guessing).
