    I enjoyed it. I didn't think there was much difference in tone between SJA and current Doctor Who. Yeah, a little more kid focused, but enjoyable none the less.

    BTW, when does season 3 start on BBC?

    I have loved Doctor Who since mid '80s, when I stayed at a friends house and watched Earthshock, I think. Watched almost all of the eps over the years when they were on PBS locally. Haven't watched it much in the past 9 or 10 years. After watching the new series, I am now going back and torrenting the entire series to start from the beginning. Haven't seen some of the Hartnell and Troughton eps. Should take me about 7 months to get through all 160 or so episodes.

    To throw my two cents in... From the pilot episode that I saw, The Sarah Jane Adventures definitely looks like a children's show. As long as it sticks to that model, it could/should do well.

    I'll spoiler tag my Torchwood comments:
    I watched the whole season of Torchwood and ended up being disappointed with it. Some characters I disliked from the get go. Some characters evolved into people I didn't like. Only Jack behaved as a responsible adult and as someone who had responsibility for earth's safety. The Torchwood underlings had entirely too many character defects.

    I felt the same way about Torchwood. I was unimpressed overall.

    I found it interesting that it said that Grant was offered the lead part in the new series before it started.

    I knew he played the Doctor for 3 minutes or so in a charity video, but didn't know about him being offered the part in the new series.

    What are you talking about? I'm watching Season 3, episode 8 right now. And there are several more shows yet to air. I plan to keep watching. :up:

    Back in the old days, some of the Lucky few in the US would have their friends in England send videotapes of the latest episodes. Nowadays, something similiar is going on. ;)

    It's not my fault, if I happened to find a more efficient distribution system for Doctor Who than the Sci Fi Channel.

    Also, I would buy a BBC TV license. I even went on the web site to try and buy one, but there was no place on the form for country. They assume only UK people would be buying licenses. It's not my fault the BBC web site was poorly planned. :) When it comes to sales/marketing in the US, the BBC is clueless. There are many other ways for them to make money on Dr. Who than the SciFi channel. And have you seen the price of a Tom Baker DVD lately? I better stop, I could go on all day.

    Hey, some of us had crushes on Liz Sladen when we were kids. So, some of us could care less about the content of the show. We're just happy to see Liz back playing Sarah Jane.

    SciFi has been getting the first run rights in the US (usually 3-6 mos after season ends in UK) then 6-9 mos later BBCA runs the season

    BBCA is currently running Season 2 I believe & SciFi just finished Season 3

    SciFi has traditionally shown the "Christmas Special" episode back to back with the actual season opener.

    Given the long hiatus that BBC announced for Season 4 there is a good chance you'll be seeing Season 3 on BBCA before season 4 shows up here in the US. BBC stated that Season 4 will not be until 2009. There will be a 2007 Christmas special episode and 2 or 3 special episodes in 2008. If we see these in the US on SciFi before they show season 4, it will more than likely occur as a special showing. Otherwise we're probably looking at Fall/Winter 2009/2010 before the SciFi showing

    Actually, Season 4 is showing 2008 plus there will be a Christmas special in 2008. Series 5 is slated for 2010 with 3 "specials" during 2009.

    cool! I think he's the best choice of those left to use if they ever do a full fledged episode with an old Doc. He still looks pretty much the same.

    Where Colin Baker has evolved into Jabba the Hutt.

    How 'bout Sylvester McCoy or Tom Baker?

    They should bring Sophie back too.
