I'm a huge fan of Dr Who!!. I grew up with Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. Didn't like Colin Baker and watched Sylvester McCoy on UK Gold!!
It doesn't start until March 26th so how can anyone be watching it?

It's being produced by BBC Wales and is being filmed in Cardiff. Chris Eccleston's regeneration scene from Paul McGann ...if it's shown.... will be interesting! I think each episode is about 40-50 minutes long and the Daleks are definitely making an appearance.

They have already filmed scenes at Madame Tussauds for one episode I believe.


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

I "grew" up with Pater Davison... but my favourite doctor will always be Tom Baker, followed by Davison.

Looking foward to it... Eccleston is an interesting choice.

I haven't seen any Doctor Who but I love Douglas Adams and I love Peter Davison and I want to see some. I didn't know they were coming out with new stuff.

Hey bm wannabe I was watching the original Dr Who series WHEN THEY WERE NEW and you were a twinkle in your daddy's eye!!!! But I live in Australia and so we are behind the rest of the world when new series get released - so that is why I asked if there was a new series.....at the moment they are running Tom Baker on our government ABC - and my favourite assistant - Leela - god I love those outfits of hers - I wanted to be her!!

Oh I still pop in from time to time... Rarely have anything to say, however.

I'll be interested to come back on the 26th though, as this may be a good place to see what any non-fans who watch make of the New Who.

Tuesdays from 5th April, 8pm on the CBC, for any Canadians interested, too.

T_M What did you think of the second series of Shameless? It grew after a slow start I think. The last two were fantastic. The comedy still outclasses most sit-coms in Britain. I never thought I would snigger at someone trying to kill a dog.

I enjoyed it a great deal - as with any series, the second season risks not seeming as fresh and imaginative as the first, simply because it *is* the second. It did suffer a little from not having as many Paul Abbott-written episodes, but I don't think Danny Brocklehurst is as bad a substitute as some claim - he's particularly good with Kev and Veronica I think, who shone in this season.

Losing Steve was a shame as it took some of the dynamic out of the charasterisation, and Craig was no adequate replacement. Having now lost Fiona too, it'll be intriguing to see how the third season shapes up.

Of course, the one bad thing about the second season of "Shameless" was that its existence meant Paul Abbott was too busy to do the "Doctor Who" episode he was originally going to write - he and Russell T Davies are great mates, going back to their "Children's Ward" days.
