Here's what I've heard...

SciFi Renews Doctor Who - 3rd Series Begins Summer 2007
http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/thi...ho/message/470

Also check out this post:

Quote:
The Sarah Jane Adventures (with Elisabeth Sladen reprising her role
as Sarah Jane Smith) has its one hour premiere special this Monday at
4:50PM on BBC One.
Quote:
Don't forget - BBC 7 http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7 begins its series of
brand new Doctor Who radio dramas this Sunday (New Years Eve) at 6PM
and Midnight GMT. Fans around the world can listen live or tune in to
each episode on the website for 7 days afterwards.
Quote:
BBC America's upcoming schedule grid reveals that they will interrupt
their current run of Doctor Who stories for the first 2 weeks of
January. On January 2 at 9PM and 1AM Eastern they will repeat Aliens
Of London and World War Three as a 2 hour movie. On January 9 and
through the week they will repeat Rose a few more times. On Sunday
January 14 from 3 to 9PM EST they will have a marathon showing all
the episodes that have aired on BBC America to that point (Rose, The
End Of The World, The Unquiet Dead, Aliens Of London, World War
Three, Dalek). Unquiet Dead through Dalek air from 11AM to 3PM EST as
a marathon on January 15. Regular service resumes with The Long Game
on January 16.

That is actually what caused their demise. The RIAA found out about it and launched a full scale attack and destroyed their planet. The Doctor's been covering for them ever since so the Daleks wouldn't attack Earth.

I'll be watching archives.
I think I seen about three or four episodes of Series 2 (not typo, just British lingo for TV season) so far, and have up to Impossible Planet saved. The rest (to my knowlege) have not yet aired in Canada.

on the greatly reduced delay between UK and US premieres.

Now if they could only go all the way, toss in enough money to make it a "co-production," and have *simultaneous* (or only a week or two lag) between there and here.

Since in its infinite wisdom, our cable provider (ATT) has decided to make Sci-Fi available only to those with digital cable for the last few years, I'll do what I've been doing -- wait for the DVD release.

You didn't have the choice -- watch DVDs or one of the other zillion shows I record.

(Ok, I don't actually record Doctor Who myself, I watch it at a friend's house, and don't mind if a miss an ep or two..)

Since SciFi isn't in HD, I'll be downloading the S3 episodes and burn to DVD and watch them in widescreen. The quality is better than SciFi.

My choice wasn't in the poll: Finish watching Season 1 on DVD and then start Season 2 on DVD.

*sigh* Thought I would start watching the classics via Netflix, but they seem to be missing the very first episodes (the "Beginning" collection). I know the releases aren't complete, but this set has been out for about nine months now?! I don't want to jump in in the middle, since I've already done that once with the new series...

(BTW, I saw a few classic eps. on PBS when visiting my grandmother, but never more than one or two episodes, not even a complete 'story' )

Let me just warn everybody right now. The Sara Jane adventures are HORRIBLE! I downloaded the pilot and it's just god awful. It's basically a "kids" Doctor Who but with horrible writers. Now Torchwood is actually very good and I get dvd quality picture and sound from mininovas uploaders. I HIGHLY recombed it.

You do know that DW started as a kids show, right?

SJA was good for it's intended audience, Torchwood is meant for a much older (ie:adult) audience.

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:
Spoiler:

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.

Cool Hugh Grant & Doctor Who

Hugh for Doctor Who?

Hugh Grant has set his sights on playing a baddie in Doctor Who and may make a guest appearance in the next series of the sci-fi hit.
http://www.channel4.com/news/content...sp?id=12435468

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.

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.
