    @missy must have missed a post or two didn’t  realise you we’re actually talking about Elementary, which in my opinion is probably a good example of why Americans TV  shouldn’t attempt to Americanise what is a British  literary character there is always something off about the production.

    @dentautherdent I agree having a companion or companions who compliment or more accurately push or challenge the Doctor is important it’s been stated in the past that the Doctor works best when he/she has companions. Remember Who started out with multiple companions, and I have always felt male companions seem to be stronger or fair better when t…[Read more]

    @missy what on earth do you mean the real doctor, though I do agree RDT’s return might repair the damage Chibbers  lack-lustre  story writing seems to have created. If RTD had been in charge for Jodies stint I feel her tenure would have been so much better. Not that I have any issue with the Timeless Child concept in general terms,  I’ve always…[Read more]

    Does anyone know what the ‘have you seen the aliens’ terms and conditions is about on the BBC Doctor Who site.
    My only guess is that it’s some kind of quirky way of telling us about the sites updated terms and conditions but I would have thought it would have just restated the current BBC website T&C’s

    Just did a bit of web surfing, and although the BBC 1 trailer/teaser didn’t give any dates evidently BBC America is saying the world wide launch of Season 13 is October 31st.

    Woohoo did anyone else seethe next teaser on BBC1 just prior to Strictly Come Dancing definitely a Who Ad lasted about 15-20 secs still no start date but mentioned sontarians and the Weeping Angels dint see it all as was busy with the Family  so wasn’t concentrating on it 100% but given the spacing I’ll expect another teaser/trailer next Satu…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Agreed, it does appear a low key ad campaign, my current guess is that the season 13 will launch either 13th or 14th November. That puts it 6 weeks before Xmas with the last episode landing the weekend before Xmas-day and a little under 2 weeks before New Years Day. It’s also just over 4 weeks away which may be why the low key first teaser with t…[Read more]

    @ blenkinsopthebrave just googled  when is the new series starting  and on of the responses came up with an article which seems to back up what I’ve seen saying a brief teaser has been seen prior to the BBC’s One Show leading fans to believe the new season is about to start. Unfortunately I’m a bit nesh (read crap) at including links , tried t…[Read more]

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @blenkinsopthebrave its not on the official site but randomly on the BBC1 channel usually immediately at the end of programs and in the evenings. I think I’ve seen it 3 times now the first time I wasn’t sure it’d actually seen it . Its almost like when they are showing a brief teaser clip for a series in the weeks  prior to a new shows start but…[Read more]

    Hi all, have any of our other British members spotted the strange 5 second Dr Who ?preview/advert that has being aired on BBC1. All it consists of is a kind of fuzzy testcard and a couple of words by Jodiedoc  and lasts a max of about 5 seconds.

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @dentarthurdent yes there was at least 1 pre gap  story that contained a future doctor can’t remember exactly the story’s name and to my shame can only remember that it had ironically Colin Baker playing a Gallefrayan Citadel guard. If my memory serves I think it was a DavidsonDoc adventure.

     

  • Devilishrobby replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @dentarthurdent what you have to remember is that before  the  Timeless Child reveal and after the War Doctor reveal Capaldi can actually be considered Doctor 2.1 with the sequence actually  being

    HartnellDoc 1.1, TroughtonDoc  1.2, PertweeDoc 1.3, T BakerDoc 1.4, DavidsonDoc 1.5, C BakerDoc 1.6, McCoyDoc 1.7, McGannDoc 1.8, HurtDoc 1.9, Ecc…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent no need to bow to my minor knowledge of pre-gap who as it is much less than other contributors to this site it was just prompted by my knowledge that the Producer for the first 2 seasons was Verity Lambert and was as I understand it was quite influential in the direction of early who.

    @aidan It was a conscious decision by Eccleston when Who was relaunched to become what we now call post gap who or NuWho that he only wanted one season. In his words he didn’t want to be trapped into the role of Doctor Who even though he was well known for other roles as well at that point. He even went as far as refusing to do conventions for a w…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent

    Dr who has a long history of female members of the senior production staff going right back to its beginnings so having a female show-runner should not surprise any of us should this occur. In my opinion it is this mix of the sexes involved in its production that has given Who its overall longevity, and at the risk  of and not…[Read more]

    @jimthefish the digital spy article I saw indicated that Jodies final special was to tie into the BBCs 100th anniversary celebrations not sure that this coincides with Who’s  60th. Given that both Jodie and Chibbers  are leaving I sincerely pray that this is not an indication of the Beebs loss of interest in Who though having both showrunner and…[Read more]

    @toinfinityandbepond yup both Jodie and Chibbers according to digital spy the article also says the next series is only 6 episodes if I’m reading things right +2 specials(christmas and spring) which I think are already in the can, with a further special (aka Jodies finale) later in the year as part of the bbc centenary celebrations .

    @blenkinsopthebrave oooo what places is this you have been reading. If accurate I wonder if it may be something similar to The key of time season where the adventures were linked stories which all had the underlining storyline but individual stories or if it’s going to be essentially one long story like most of the early BG stories. This move c…[Read more]
