I read that the Peter Cushing movies are not considered canon or part of the TV series story because the Doctor in those movies is just an ordinary human with a box he built in his back garden rather than a proper timelord. But with RTD's mind who knows.

Who complained, was it Mylene Klass, Kerry Katona, Jordan etc all feeling squeezed off the screens

Yes the Cushing movies are not considered canon for that reason. Although the Police Box design for the Matt Smith series is based on the Cushing movies.

The Cushing TARDIS actually looks very, very close to a real policebox - more than most of the TV show's attempts any way, and certainly more than the Matt Smith version.



There used to be one pretty much exactly like this at the Hendon police college gate just down the road from Colindale tube.

Not to mention the fact that the two Cushing adventures are remakes of Hartnell stories - it's not as if he could meet the daleks for the first time twice, for example.

Isn't Barbara also his granddaughter in the film (as opposed to Susan's teacher)?

Just rewatching Dr Who at the proms on BBC HD and the music is brilliant - just a shame they have to pump the volume up to 11 on the series so it kills rather than adds to the atmosphere and emotion

I thought Cribbins answered the question of which Doctor he liked best with Peter Cushing's so I assume that's why he'll have been mentioned.

Amazing that people complained about too much Tennant on screen. BBC haters are a funny lot...

I think it was something like 24 new appearances (and this figure included radio) and the rest were repeats.

Fair play to him, cash in on the Dr Who whilst he can! Saying that he's a good actor and mildly entertaining - far more than most of the other so called talent out there right now.

That's just the BBC shows. I don't know what else he's been in on the other chanels, but he was definitely on the Alan Carr show the other night, on chanel 4 or 5.

A lot of Tennant agreed. But he is so nice when he does it, and so much fun, maybe TV needs more of him, not less.

Bearing in mind that 41 of those appearances appear to be repeats of shows in which he plays the Doctor, the criticism looks to be a bit unfounded. A good job they didn't include the Christmas idents, otherwise we'd surely be closing in on the thousand!

Ahhh the day of the showing of part two, times I've read threads of this forum anticipating part two of a Davis written show and what does he usually deliver!

So with that very thought, I don't expect much tonight, it's usually overacted and cringeworthy, only Cribbins will be the shining star on it. Though with this one theres the added bonus of a regeneration.

Moffat wrote Smith's first words, right? At least we should get some competent writing tonight.

Seriously though, I'm hoping for a big turnaround from last week's episode. I love the majority of RTD's run upto now and Tennant's my favourite Doctor. I'd hate for them to end it on such a low point.


A little off-topic, but I got an iPod Touch for Christmas. Can anyone point me in the direction of some Doctor Who wallpapers for it?

I've got a sneaking suspicion RTD is going to do something silly around the regenerations. I don't recall a regeneration being referred to as a death of a doctor before and we know he constantly has to go above and beyond in his endings. One things for sure there's going to be the mother of all reset switches thrown at least.

I hope his first words are not "Oh, Hello". This phrase has really started to grate lately.

Tennant will regenerate after getting bummed by a Yeti - it is inevitable.

What's Cribbins piloting in the trailer? That ship from the last Master ep?
