Doctor Who: 2007


#121

She quit. But to be honest, the timing worked okay. The second series makes her family and friends much less enjoyable, she gets a good story arc, and her tenure ends on a high.


#122

But I do find myself missing the family in this season… It’s just not feeling grounded in the same way.


#123

Well next week seems to involve her family, so that may change.


#124

Crap. I meant ‘more’. They stop being so irritating, and Mickey actually becomes an okay character.


#125

Well, now … the trailer for the latter half of the season was neat.

obWhoTrivia: the gentleman who played Lazarus, Mark Gatiss, was the writer for the first season’s The Unquiet Dead and second season’s The Idiot’s Lantern.

You’d think they could just nip back a couple of weeks in the TARDIS.


#128

So… no response to this week’s episode?

It felt like it was on autopilot… So has most of the season.


#129

Some of us are still downloading this week’s episode. :P


#130

I thought it was a fun episode. Bit of a let-down because I was led to believe we’d learn more about the mysterious Mr. Saxon, but still fun, and I was glad to see more of Martha’s family. Plus Martha’s finally an official companion.


#131

Not a great episode, but at least much better then the two previous ones.


#132

I still think the whole season has been better than last year’s though. The shoutouts to the 3rd Doctor, and Spinal Tap were amusing.


#133

“I need to turn this one up to 11!”


#134

Ah… now the Tuxedo thing makes sense…


#135

Nah, the Tuxedo thing was a reference to Rise of the Cybermen. The 3rd doctor reference was when he talked about being out of practice in regards to reversing the polarity of something. :P (The 3rd Doctor was always reversing the polarity of the neutron flow.)


#136

Ah… now the polarity thing makes sense…


#137

Yeah, my damned ISP severely restricts torrent traffic, so just saw it as well.

Thought it was decent - much better than the past few episoides, but still not as good as it could be. I thought this season was off to such a good start with the first couple episodes, but it’s been disappointing since. Liked the polarity reference, heh…and the “warnings” given about the Doctor scenes.

Looking forward to Captain Jack’s return - I really liked the character in the first season, and although that impression was diminished by Torchwood, I still think it’ll be cool to have him back.


#138

Alright, who do you folks think Mr Saxon is?

I’m betting he’s The Master.


#139

My bets are on The Meddling Monk, K’anpo Rimpoche, Salyavin or Drax.

Okay, not really.


#140

It really could be any number of people. One thing is certain, it seems he knows who the Doctor is.
