    What, no love for the Doctor this week?! :)

    I thought the bit about *ickey staying behind was rather telegraphed. Yet at the same time, it seemed "off" when it actually happened :confused: I guess he realized that he'd wind up back in the London 'council' towers long before Rose ever did, and he'd be all alone there...

    Interesting how her "dad" reacted when she told him, after all that hand-holding and "chemistry" that went before. Probably realistic though, it's a lot to take in suddenly. I wonder (idly, since we'll never know) if he'll regret that reaction down the line.

    What happened to Rose the dog?

    Was she cyber-converted to yet another tin dog on the show?

    I love this show. Not only is it showing the good qualities of the old Doctor series (the humor, etc.) but it catches me by surprise with emotion every couple epsiodes.

    It didn't burn through the rope. It separated individual molecules in a plane normal to the length of the rope from each other effectively cutting the rope. Burning is SOOOOO last eon.

    not trying the thread crap, but I'm wondering what's so great about this show...I'm new to Doctor Who and I can't see what the big deal is...I'll keep watching, I guess, but I'd rather have SG-1 or Atlantis before BSG...

    You can consider it as less geeky but more tongue-in-cheek than Star Trek. It's been around since 1963 (!), so it's older, and has more history to draw from. As you can tell, it's extremely British in nature, so it's a little harder for an American audience to "get." Dare I say it? It's the Beatles of science fiction TV shows. :D

    I've been watching the Doctor for over 26 years now.

    During the early eighties, there was major drought of sci-Fi on TV. And at the time one of the best Doctors ever, Tom Baker, reigned. Before Star Trek had TV sequels, there was Dr. Who. It's been there when other sci-fi wasn't. The show has had good times and bad.

    And the show is better than ever. The show may very well be at it's peak. So you picked a good time to start watching it.

    If it turns out not to be your cup of tea, then you are fortunate, you have many alternatives now.

    But give the show a try.

    Sit back, watch, and oh yeah.....

    Have a jelly baby! :)

    I really enjoyed it, but spoiled myself by reading about Mickey's departure. Well, it'll be nice to get back to just the Doctor and Rose. Who really needs a tin dog anyway?

    I checked this and the "Rise of the Cybermen" thread ...

    I'm surprised that no one mentioned that both of "Crouch" characters from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire appeared in this episode.

    no worries...a sci-fi show would have to really stink before I give up on it...I just came in with "firefly" expectations...guess I need to relax a little...it's a fun show...

    There is always the possibility of yet another alternate reality.

    I do wonder if singer Michael W. Smith is aware of this Doctor Who character...

    Not only is it a sci-fi show it is a kid's show (or initially was). My 6 year 11 month old (I'm not allowed to call her 7 for 14 more days) daughter loves Doctor Who, she asks every day, "Daddy do we have any new Doctors?" She watches the same episodes over and over. She first hated Tennant and wanted Eccleston back but he has grown on her. Her favorite is Tom Baker though (then again she has only seen 3 Doctors so far)

    I wouldn't say lower your expectations but don't expect the whiz bang boom of Firefly.
