    If your unfamiliar with Doctor Who, it features;

    A Doctor.
    Doctor Who: Movie

    A Tardis.
    Doctor Who: Movie

    A sidekick.
    Doctor Who: Movie
    (Usually female)

    Along with dustbins on wheels, with toilet plungers for limbs.
    Doctor Who: Movie
    (Though sometimes they hover)

    And adventures that cover a vast array of (sometimes) complexed topics (that really makes you wonder how they manage to market it as a Children's/Family show), which include existentalism, reason vs. faith, greed for power, coming to terms with mortality, etc.

    I'm sold. I wonder if they'll do a Torchwood as well?

    Well if the Doctor Who film does well, there's always a chance. One annoying thing about Torchwood for me, is that the series doesn't feel quite the full package.

    Though that could be due to me missing the last episode of Season 2, so I haven't a clue what happened at the end. I really should just watch it on youtube. (If it's still there)

    The Doctor Who movie they made in 1996 failed utterly... I will get on board with this if Davies isn't responsible. The final episodes he writes are so bad I can't imagine a movie by him wouldn't be an equal mess.

    Well the series is in Stephen Moffat's hands, and his episodes usually kick-ass. (So there is a good possibility he'll have alot of involvment with the film, as his episodes pan out with a filmlike quality) He wrote the WWII episode in the first story ('Are you my mummy?'), Blink, and the library planet episode with the invisible piranha's.

    Though gotta agree, Russell T Davies overuses the Daleks, they're just not that good an enemy in comparision to some of the newer creatures they've made. But they put them in, to please the hardcore fan base. (He can also be mawkishly sentimental at times) Though I really liked the characterisation of Donna at the end of series 4, that was really good.

    Peter Cushing played the lead role in those films, where the writer's took the title literally by casting Cushing as 'Dr. Who', who was a human scientist. (rather than a mysterious alien) They sucked impeccably. (Though they're funny to watch)

    Worth just checking out one of the new series episodes, that're scattered around Youtube. (Blink's a good one, and Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead) And see what you think. The series started back in 1963 (making it older than Star Trek), though it got cancelled in 1989 (?) and brought back in 2005.

    I remember that one. Wasnt that a made for TV movie though, not a big screen piece?

    I havent really watched Doctor Who since the dude with the 8 foot long scarf. Though I did see part of one of the newer ones. Help me if you know the episode because I'd like to watch it in its entirety. There were these invisible assassins that only became visible when you look directly at them. They would appear as those angel statues covering their faces. The concept seemed really interesting but I never got a chance to see the whole thing.

    That one is Blink, and it's one of the best episodes of the whole series. (That's a Moffat episode.) You should see the whole thing, statues will become wholly more terrifying.

    Now you do.

    Moffat always seems to write invisible enemies, who're nigh on impossible to kill. As then he can build the tension between the charaters, rather than rely on special effects to give the monster's gravitas. (Though the effects for Who aren't that good, most of it's strengths are in the writing)

    Moffat writes all the exceptional episodes in the show. Girl in the Fireplace was also absolutely excellent. He seems to like to make children terrified of things they wouldn't have thought to be scared of before. (Doctor Who is, after all, a show for children.)

    That's why I'm really exited about them writing a film, they'll have far less budgetary limitations. So surely the writing will have a great deal of freedom with what they can do and show, thus kids all across the world will be scared of their own shadow due to Doctor Who.

    Hookswords; That upload cuts out the best bit of that episode, tried to find a different uploader for that episode, but couldn't anyone else.

    You can torrent that episode pretty easily, I think (that's how I've seen it anyway). I don't know that any place has it streaming though.

    I think they have released the stuff on DVD. Some of the older episodes are missing because BBC threw the film away. All which exists is sound recording made by fans (who recorded the TV... this was before the VCR).

    I'm a big fan of the older episodes (In particular Doctors 1,2,4). The new stuff is ok, but I miss competent companions like Zoe and Leela. I also want more crazy adventures on alien planets/spacestations full of robots.

    I don't mind the Daleks, but I want them in silver/gun metal and with blue or black bumps.

    lol i'm a big fan of doctor who, i just knew this show recently, but already watched all the episodes ! I'm looking forward to see the movie ! And thanks Kagemusha22 for posting the vid, it's always a pleasure to see the episodes again :p ! For me, the best episode is when the doctor goes into a spaceship, and there are weird robots ( who looks like clowns ) who are spying a girl from the french renaissance and they can time traveling to there through the chimney ! It was a beautiful story

    Those clockwork designs (with the transparent face canopy) were awesome, yeah. Probably my fav design from the new era stuff. Apparently Moffat wrote that one too. Wikipedia says:

    "Steven Moffat has expressed an interest to bring back his own creations in the 5th series, stating their camouflage will take the guise of a different era's style."

    Might mean that we'll see them again?

    Sounds good to me. This thread's gone very Moffat-centric, though generally the current series has had some really good writers and the old one had the likes of Douglas Adams writing episodes.

    I like Davie's epic feel on some of the episodes.

    I need two more seasons to complete my set (3 & 4) which I'll get from amazon UK. (Thank the gods for universal DVD players)

    Haha I think the thread got Moffat-centric because he's written what are by far and away the best episodes of the series.

    I've heard that the Doctor Who soundtrack of now is nowhere near as good as the avante garde electronica that was a large part of the original series. Is that true?





    Also according to polls (taken in the UK) on the subject of TV series people would most like to see made into a movie, Doctor Who came on top.

    I remember watching Doctor Who on PBS when I was a kid growing up. Mostly the Tom Baker Doctor Who episodes. When Sci-Fi started showing the new series, man hearing that recognizable theme again (even if updated it's still pretty much spot on), got me excited.

    Christopher Eccleston, who I knew from 28 Days later, made a pretty cool Doctor.

    I felt I had to check out what else moffat has done on IMDB. Nothing that caught my interest really, but I noticed the man hasn't written a single tv-series episode that's got a rating below 9.0. Freaky...

    Kagemusha, Yeah... I decided to watch a few of the old episodes while waiting for the series to begin again... And the first thing I thought while hearing the old opening theme was how much better it was than the new one. Almost makes me think whoever made the X-Files music copied it...

    Yeah it's annoying. The soundtrack to the current series is very mainstream, almost Elfman-ish. It's playful, with sentimentality sprickled through and a tendency to be overly dramatic. But I haven't actually seen many old episodes to know what it was like in comparision, other than that I've heard it's not as good. (Though I was told by a A-Level music teacher that the old sound team are being brought back for the reboot)

    Well Russell T. Davies in comparision is quite prolific, his most well known work before rebooting Doctor Who was being the creator and main writer of the original Queer as Folk. (Before selling it to America to be remade)

    Moffatt has been off writing the first Tintin movie, 'Secret of the Unicorn', for Mr Spielberg but he's not doing the others so as to concentrate on Dr Who.

    The BEEB were very silly back in the seventies chucking out and wiping tapes of Dr Who, and all sorts of other irreplaceable stuff. Old episodes still turn up in Australian attics or Swedish basements thank goodness. My fav Dr was Jon Pertwee, and most of Tom Baker. Before the BEEB released vids of Dr Who I used to seek down old multi-copied versions that were about 10 generations down. Utterly unwatchable by today's standards, but it was all I could get then. I finally got to see all the episodes my mum wouldn't let me see when I was little because she said they gave me nightmares. She was right! The best ever Dr Who story IMO was 'The Daemons'. Based loosely on John Wyndham's 'The Midwich Cukoos'. Still scary today, and had The Brigadier and The Master in it! And on that matter, it's about time Nicholas Courtney who played The Brigadier put in an appearance in the new series! That would make me very happy!

    And for me I prefer the original mix of the theme, arranged by the hidden talent that was >>DELIA DERBYSHIRE<<

    Just looked on that link for Delia Derbyshire, she truly was brilliant. (Especially since she'd beat many DJ's by a couple of decades in making electronic dance music.) People liberally tag artists with the label 'genius' willy nilly, though she was an artist that was deserving of being called one.

    I really can't make my mind up over that outfit choice. It's like he's trying to represent all the Doctors at once, to downplay his youth. I'd have liked a more youthful look,... a Doctor who's whole wardrobe comes from Topman and River Island! (Brilliant )

    Whilst Karen Gillian looks like she's dressing to look like the dourer side of the 80's, but still nice. (In comparison to Matt Smiths garb)
