I am not a Dr. Who fan - I may have watched an episode once a long time ago.
But even *I* know what that is! Just from cultural absorption. :D

This is so inspiring that I've decided to write an Dalek/R2D2 fanfic :) !!! And then I find it's already been done :(

I'm glad this was done. I hate those things.

He's got it all down - the run, the clothes! Just like 10 :D !

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out where this new season of Who is going with 12 :/ ...

I am wondering what's up with 12 also. Can't seem to get my mind around the way the character is being played and the seemingly incongruous plots of the episodes. So far it has been kind of dissapointing. :shruggy:
However, and this is my bane, after more than 50 years of investment it is still Doctor Who. :D

Dr. Who isn't airing in Germany. Just the season premiere was available to watch in selected theatres.

What was the first episode you remember seeing, Tom?

I have not watched the series as a devoted fan for the entire run. Just a few episodes that showed up on TV in the USA starting in the late 1960's that piqued my interest. I remember something about ice monsters in a cave. That was the second Doctor according to what I have read about the various Doctors. Doctor Who was not available in the USA on a regular basis, but some TV stations aired a few of the episodes, probably illegally but that was the 1960's :) . I do not think it was until the 1970's that Doctor Who was a regular offering in the USA. I watched the series off and on during the 1970's when I ran across it on TV and picked it up again when it was revised with the ninth Doctor. The fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, is what got me semi-hooked. :)

I was working nights, then, and, when I woke up this one afternoon, I'd just happened to turn on my local PBS channel to find this tall, curly-haired guy, with a scarf that could wrap a village, mourning the loss of his friends. It was Genesis of the Daleks, in about the middle of the thing, and it was to be the only episode I would see for years. This was 1979.

That night, I asked a co-worker, who had lived in London in the '60s, if she knew what this was. She said it sounded like a kid's show called "Doctor Who", but that the actor she remembered (she said she never watched it, but knew some rabid fans) was an older guy with an amazing head of white hair - that's a direct quote.

My interest fell off during 7's tenure, but by then, I'd seen all the available episodes from An Unearthly Child on through. I loved Tom Baker and Paul McGann (btw, I wish McGann had more than that movie, some radio dramas and the occasion trot-out for anniversaries; it's so tantalizing - those bits and pieces *sigh*. And he was 8, for cryin' out loud! Flip it on it's side and you've got the symbol for infinity - who in their right mind passes that up?)

Anyway, I want Capaldi to be successful, but for me, that'll mean Moffat gets out of his own way and lets somebody else write for 12. Hey, is Russel Davies available?

I saw this just yesterday, and I want it - I don't want to pay $29.98 for it. But if I did pay the 30 bucks, I would switch the John Hurt head for the Paul McGann head, and that would be that :D ...

Btw, in the clip, the price was $14.99 :( . That I would do.

I do have to say that Clara was really rocking that period 1930's dress in Mummy On The Orient Express!

It's taken me almost to the end of the season to warm up to Twelve, but I'm pretty much there. I've also noticed that some of the episodes were written by other people...other than Steven Moffat.

Nine o'clock tonight is the finale!
