We're getting ready for the new DW by watching the old movie "Doctor Who and the Daleks" starring Peter Cushing. The movie is sort of an "alternative reality" version of Doctor Who since it follows a totally different timeline than the original tv series.

Was this movie originally in b/w ?

I was wondering this as well. 26 seasons is a lot to get caught up on. I think I tried to watch this once as a kid, but I just didn't like it. I seem to recall thinking the effects were lame. I'm looking forward to checking out the new version. I just hope I'm not lost.
The series is about a traveler in time and space who often can't get his vehicle to the right location. So if you get lost, don't work, so is the Doctor. :rolleyes:

Editor of BBC science magazine defended after plugging his own book

Focus: controversy over 'Doctor Who' book

LONDON - The BBC has backed the decison of the editor of its science magazine Focus to devote a dozen pages of the April issue to plugging his own book about TV series 'Doctor Who'.
The title of the book is featured on the magazine's cover next to an image of the Tardis, with the strapline "The amazing real science behind sonic screw-drivers, cyberman, regeneration, and more".

It sort of looks like a Dalek, but not overly so. The title of the episode "The Human Factor" is perhaps the most "Doctor Who-ish" thing about the thumbnails :)

The irony of your comment is that Terry Nation, the man who created the Daleks, was a producer and writer on the first two seasons of MacGyver.
And of course, the Doctor had a sonic screwdriver, MacGyver just has a swiss army knife, right?

And both would usually discard weapons when given the chance.

DW had K9, and I think MacGyver had a dog in one episode.

Both drove convertables for a bit and both lived in vehicles (MacGyver in a houseboat, DW in a Tardis).

Did both charactors have pretty much the same job description?
