This isn't the first time that the Doctor has inadvertantly created something he would run into in the future. After all, he was more or less indirectly responsible for the creation of the Time-Agents of which Captain Jack would one day be a member. To find out that he was personally responsible for the creation of Torchwood was just deliciously ironic.
Oh, I agree. :D I'm kind of hoping he'll find out that he's responsible for the creation of Torchwood. Even if he doesn't, I think it's going to be fairly interesting either way.

And NeuralClone, regarding your signature. I'd like it to be known that should the BBC want a ginger doctor for their next one, i'm available and willing to drop everything at a hat :p

^ Right, because what made Doctor Who such a great show was the 22-minute multiepisode format. Now it's a one-hour show, so it's just like American Idol and Deadwood. :rolleyes:

Yeah well I wonder just how long this new Dr. Who series will last now, I can't see it lasting too long after RTD leaves. And it feels Americanized.  :crazy:
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

Well, there were 3 two-parters in the Eccleston run...and quite a lot of the stand-alones did tie into later stuff, so there is still a little of the feel of the old serials.

And, as long as the show is riding the nostalgia wave and continues to be well done, I don't think RTD will be leaving anytime soon unless he chooses to. I thinks he's that rare breed of fan that actually gets to work on the show he loves...he'll stay put for a while yet... :)

Well, I should've been doing book-work but... I'm simply WEEKS behind on my Who viewing and I needed a fix and this was next to be watched... :hehe:

BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!

Best thing RTD's written to date.  (Okay, I have a weakness for horror stories and a great fondness for historical DW eps, especially Victorian/Edwardian-set ones! :love:  :love:  :love:)  

RTD's strength (or habit) is the creation of extremely endearing, noble and heroic minor characters who he then kills off to tug at the heartstrings.  More of that here.  And the inevitable political jabs. :rolleyes:  But still... wonderful! :wideeyed:  And I loved the Torchwood setup and Bad Wolf refs!  

So good I can actually wait a few more days before I watch the next one. :)

This was a great one, Pauline Collins was fantastic as Queen Victoria and I LOVED the bet bewteen Rose and the Doctor to get her to say "We are not amused." :howling: and the SFX of the werewolf was quite well done and I loved the ending with Rose making fun of the current royal family. The one thing I didn't quite get was the superpowered monks.  :blink:

Superpowered minks? Can you elucidate?

Ah, that makes more sense.


I rather felt they were in keeping with the Kung Fu / martial monks beloved of fiction. Especially as they had come from 'elsewhere' to the area on their quest.

British monks though?  :blink: It kind of smacked more of a Matrix redux.

Darn, I was looking forward to those super-powered minks--kind of like Doctor Who meets a Sci Fi Channel Saturday night movie.

Well, they were hardly your traditional Christian monks, were they? Friar Tuck would have been well out of place amongst them. :D

Kind of like Dr. Who meets the Matrix actually, but then Dr. Who pretty much invented the Matrix in The Deadly Assassin.

They might've been Christian monks I mean there's no real explaination for them or their Matrix like powers.  :blink:  :unsure:
