So, Season 7 starts next week in both UK and the USA. Anyone a fan of this show? I started watching fully during season 3 of the Nu-Who but had watched random episodes from season 1 & 2 before hand (Work made me miss a lot early stuff)

I am now going all the way back to 1963 and watching from there.

My god, its some horrid acting.

Last season was kinda meh to me.

I'm gonna give it a try, but I'm getting sort of tired of Matt's delivery. I've noticed the longer a show goes on, depending on how good it is, the more stale the dialogue gets because the writers become acclimated to the actors and vice versa. I want a new Doc. :-(

I started watching it from Christopher Eccleston, and really enjoyed it, but since Matt Smith I haven't been as into it. I think he's fine as a doctor (although I preferred David Tennant), but I'm just not enjoying the episodes as much.

I think The Aztecs from the First Doctor is pretty watchable.

Doctor Who is and remains fantastic. I thought season 6 was better than season 5, and I think the Moffat Who has had the best meta-plot of the revived series. I do miss individual elements of the Davies Doctor Who universe, though (Torchwood, Tennant, Rose, Donna).

Dear Moffat,

Nobody cares about River Song. Get some new companions. I'm tired of Rory and Amy. Bowties are cool, I agree.

Sincerely,

Tim

I like River. Don't understand why people don't like her. :(

I'm also fine with Rory and Amy. I think Moffat did a good job letting them level up throughout seasons 5-6.

Matt Smith's "Xs are cool" meme actually kind of annoys me.

Timeater why do have opposite opinions this is making my feelings hurt. :(

Is Martha your favorite companion?

I like River Song. I think it's just the individual episode stories (probably a better term for this) that I'm finding weaker and less interesting than before.

Sweetie, I liked (tolerated) River for her first few episodes, but after that my rather acceptable levels of tolerance evaporated quickly. She's just a walking trope and Too Cool For School But Not Actually Very Cool At All. Same goes with Rory and Amy. I was fine with them for awhile. A season would have sufficed. Martha was meh. I liked Mickey. Rose 4eva

There have been some fantastic episodes recently (The Doctor's Wife a particular highlight) and Matt Smith is a superb Doctor, but Moffatt's ongoing plot has disappeared so far up its own backside that it's getting really quite irritating. I'd quite like all of that mess to finish, soon.

Vincent and the Doctor is my least-favorite Moffat Who episode, except for ones that I can't think of right now. (And no, Vampires of Venice is beating it.)

Doctor's Wife was definitely fantastic, though.

Vincent and the Doctor was one of the best DW eps ever.

The first time I saw it, I watched it with Sapo, who hadn't seen Who before, and I was kind of embarrassed. I remember her asking if it was always that bad. (Then she watched the Pilot, and she didn't like that either. It's kind of a miracle that she kept going long enough to get into the series.)

I'll say I liked it a little better when I re-watched it with my boyfriend a few months ago. I still found the indie music or whatever it was during the Vincent-cries scene EXTREMELY cloying, though.

I don't understand how anyone could like Mickey. Did people feel sorry for him or something? I didn't. I remember rolling my eyes at the end of the Pilot the first time I watched it because I was dreading Rose staying behind and having to rejoin the Doctor later by some contrived mechanism, and then feeling totally relieved when Rose didn't let Mickey guilt-trip her into staying.

That just makes Mickey boring, though. What makes me actively dislike him is that they shamelessly and nonsensically paired him with Martha for no reason at the end of Davies Who, like a final symbol of the hostile attitude Who always seemed to take with interracial relationships.

i like river song a whole shit load more than rory and amy.

Actually my problem with them is how much it FOCUSED on them. I didn't mind amy, though rory was awful. But so much focus on some really boring stuff. ugh.

Vincent and the Doctor was absolutely stunning. As was The Doctor's Wife.
Also Blink, Human Nature/Family of Blood and Midnight, from the Tennant era.

I like River, and I seem to be one of the few people who liked Rose once she grew up a bit. I can't stand Donna, though; don't really care about character development, she's still bleh.

Scumchat has quite a few Whovians.


Also, I would totally walk 500 miles.
