Have you seen any of the orginal Doctor Who? It was extremely cheesey(?) and downright stupid, but in recent years, its become a great show. Isn't Torchwood (my favorite show) a spinoff of Doctor Who?

The Brits create great television (Black Adder, The Young Ones)!

YAY!!!! I knew I could find another Whovian!

I was completely against Matt Smith at first, too, simply because I loved David Tennent as the Doctor, but I'm starting to warm up to him. Nobody beats David, though.

I haven't seen any of the original, but I can only imagine how cheesy it was.

Torchwood is indeed a spinoff of Doctor Who. As a matter of fact, Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who. It's an AWESOME show and nothing beat that first season. It was SO good!

I agree that there's some great shows overseas. I LOVED Viva Blackpool. The BBC version of "Life on Mars" was fantastic. Misfits is awesome. Too many to name!!!

Which I think is covered in bullshittiness, since it's really only episode 5 of the season. I hate that they take such a long break with the seasons. They've only been on for a little over a month, so now they'll do a Christmas special in December, and then come back in late January/early February for the rest of the season. It's SOOO frustrating! Too much down time.

However, that being said, I'm sad to know that tonight's episode deals with the loss of yet another of the Doctor's companions. Just when you start to get connected to the characters, they move on to new ones. I guess it helps keep the show fresh and means they can get bigger names to sign on, since they don't have to give such long, open-ended contracts, but it still sucks. Meh.

If anyone else wants to discuss Doctor Who this season (or even in general), I'll be here tonight!!!
