    @missy and @janetteb If you got into Doctor Who through the new series, then I suggest the Six and Evelyn story, “Jubilee.”  When Russell T. Davies started New Who, he recruited Jubilee’s writer Robert Shearman.  Shearman changed and adapted Jubilee into the episode “Dalek.”

    The premise is the same: the Doctor finds himself in the presence of a m…[Read more]

    @missy Well you can get a lot of Big Finish’s early stuff for cheap.  They discontinued the CDs and only sell them as downloads.

    My tip would be to sign up and get a Big Finish account (it’s free), and then get the Big Finish app and sync it to your account. Then, whatever you buy as a download, you can download it to your phone or other device…[Read more]

    I’ve done a lot of thinking about this subject.  Who is my favorite companion?  It’s actually a companion from the audios.

    Sixth Doctor companion Evelyn Smythe

    @Wolfweed So if I read that right, they’re doing “Shada” the same way they did the Second Doctor’s “Power of the Daleks” almost?

     

    I’m actually mixed on this.  I’m glad it’s going to be finished.  And I’ll definitely check it out and add it to my collection.  But, at the same time, I have Big Finish’s version, with the Eighth Doctor.  And I rea…[Read more]

  • Thank you everyone for your input.  It’s been super helpful.  My Fourth Doctor cosplay is almost done.  I’m just waiting on my shoes to arrive and then I’ll post some pics.  But I have another issue.  With the Fourth Doctor, I’m planning to cosplay as the Twelfth Doctor as well.  I’ll re-use the coat from my Fourth Doctor cosplay and use the Twelf…[Read more]

  • Hello again everyone.  I’m still working on my Fourth Doctor cosplay (which I commented about earlier in the thread).  I find myself in need of your guys’ help again.

    I’m going for one of the Fourth’s frock coat looks.  Mainly the burgundy velvet frock coat (that he wore in such stories as <i>Pyramids of Mars, The Masque of Ma…[Read more]

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic The Doctor Falls

    One of the things I want to talk about is the ending.  After watching “The Doctor Falls,” I watched it on a lot of reaction channels.  The scene right before the First Doctor shows up.

    “I will NOT CHANGE!”

    Am I just interpreting this scene wrong?  Everyone is saying “he’s trying not to regenerate.  He’s trying to stay as he is.”  But I don’…[Read more]

    Throughout time, Doctor Who had created many pieces of memorabilia that fans want.  Everything from the Fourth Doctor’s scarf to the Seventh Doctor’s umbrella.  Well, for me, after this season, there’s another piece I’d like to add to my list:

    Missy’s sonic umbrella.

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic On The Sofa (8)

    I was just thinking about something.  Since the Master is SUPPOSEDLY dead for good this time (“Don’t bother regenerating, you got the full blast.”) (and I stress “supposedly,” because it’s the Master, so who knows), I’d like to see Chibnall bring back some of the other Time Lord villains.  Since the new series began, it’s always been either the M…[Read more]

  • Oh that’s a shame.  It’s just a personal style preference for me.  I love long coats you see.  It’s one of the reasons why I’m not considering the red corduroy coat.

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic Dr Who News (4)

    I was just listening to “The Diary of River Song.”  In the third story, “Signs,” River goes on an adventure with a man pretending to be the Doctor.  I really liked the performance in that story, and I kinda want Samuel West (the actor who played “Mr. Song” in signs) to play the Doctor.  That’s just my personal want.  I’m sure however it is wil…[Read more]

  • I need some help.  I’ve decided I want to start cosplaying.  For my first foray into Cosplay, I’m going with the Fourth Doctor.  Since I’m new to this, I’m not making anything, I’m just getting pieces together for the ensemble.  Right now, I’m having trouble with the coat.  While not as iconic as his scarf, the Fourth Doctor wore many memo…[Read more]

  • When it comes to my favorite Doctor, that’s really hard to decide.  I like all the actors who’ve played the Doctor (yes, some more than others, but I’ve never not liked an actor in the role… the material some of the Doctors have to work with on the other hand…).  So, I like to break it down and say I have 4 favorites:

    Hello.  I’m looking for some recommendations.  You see, in a couple months, I’m going on a long-distance flight.  To pass the time, I’m looking into the Doctor Who audio dramas by Big Finish.  I already have “Shada,” and I’m about to acquire “The Diary of River Song,” and I was looking for some other recommendations.

    Preferences:

    @nightfell Oh I hope not.  Back when I had DirecTV, watching Doctor Who wasn’t an issue, I could DVR it and catch up whenever I wanted.  But, between series eight and nine, I switched over to Charter, and on the basic package, Charter doesn’t get BBC

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    @NightFell I wouldn’t worry too much about it (I’m American too by the way).  When I saw it was being removed, I looked into it.  Netflix is– please forgive me if I phrase this wrong– under a yearly contract with the BBC to show Doctor Who.  All that means is that the contract is almost up and Netflix just has to renew it, which it most likely will.

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    I was marathoning Doctor Who recently.  Given that he’s a time traveler, I like to marathon the episodes out of order (except for the ones that need to be watched chronologically, like the classic serials or Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead to name two examples), and I started thinking as I watched:

    The relationship between the 10th…[Read more]

  • McCottonTheDoctorFan replied to the topic On The Sofa (7)

    @ob-wan I can’t help you with complete collections.  But I do have a few sources you can try.

    Netflix has “Classic Doctor Who” (that’s what it’s credited as).  It has some complete serials for a few of the Doctors.  It has 1 story arc (or serials) each for the 1st and 2nd doctors.  It has 3 or 4 for the 3rd Doctor (including “The Three Doc…[Read more]
