I would also like to hear the history of why Gallifrey blew up. That was not there when last I saw an episode. He said something to Rose about a war, and they lost, but that's just a sketch, really. When I left the Time Lords, they were doing nicely and yelling at the Doctor whenever they could catch up with him.
The Time War is something new to the Doctor Who mythology.
It looks to be a recurring theme that will be explained in the next couple of seasons.
I don't want to give anything away if you haven't seen the first season.
Crazy Larry loves ya! ......Hurry up before they lock me up!
I finally found the tape m7y mom taped while i was in new york.. (thought i cheated on Rose by about a year.. lol)
I love this version of the series... Remember they redeigned stuff to make it work with new viewers.. and this is a real old TARDIS.... the time wasr is actually a theme brought over from the book series.. and a bad hint.. on Galefry one... the BBC said that the timeloards are as dead as the daleks... continue watching.. (stop watching that little teaser as it is suppost to be a surprise)
I can't wait to see the other episodes... that or go to amazon canada and pay extra shipping.. lol
I have watched all the episodes so far and enjoyed them all. It was especially nice to see a Dalek again. They were the best villians. I really look forward to watching this show every Friday night. Too bad this Doctor will only last one season. Season two has already started (or is about to) in the UK and it is a different Doctor but Rose is still there.
This Current Doctor was picked for one reason. He is a well known British actor (In England, not here) and they wanted a "name actor" to play The Doctor. The second season has been greenlighted and a new, lesser known actor will play the part now. The show is a big hit in England, I don't know about here. Rose will remain for at least the next season.
The Dr. Who show started in the early 50's if I remember correctly. Many different actors have starred on the show. It is very convient to have a character that regenerates himself whenever the need arrises, so that a new actor can come in if the actor playing the current Doctor dies, or wants to leave, or is released by the BBC for whatever reason. The older shows, done very cheaply and in black and white, were of a much more serious nature with small amoutns of humor thrown in. When Tom Baker became the Doctor (probably the best known Doctore in the US, the fun element and humor was raised to the top of the bar.
It is going to be very interesting to watch how this new version will grow and change during the remaining show for this season, and the next with a new Doctor. I for one, love the new show and hope it suceeds.
"The Empty Child"
This epuisode opens suddenly and unexpected. it just pulls you in or rejects you, it pulled me in... (I knew the entire thing already.. lol) The child is realy freeky and well done. Jack is a real good character and has nice potential for more development. Overall
