Well, I've done my Doctor Who rewatch of all of Nine and Ten's episodes, and I'm watching Eleven's on tv since I don't have the dvd versions of those. Now I'm doing my Torchwood rewatch since I was kindly gifted with the DVDs of those this year.

Now I can't wait for the new series, I'm going a bit bonkers waiting to see what happens. Plus new Torchwood this year as well...which will be...interesting since *spoilers* they killed off half the bloody cast. NOOOOOO IANTO!!!!!

Anyways, let's talk, since I only know loser people in real life who think I'm a bit bonkers for watching this

ETA: The white spoiler text is a bit of a fail....

bit worried about Torchwood though isn't it being taken over by an american company for funding :? not sure about that. I really want to do an epic rewatch right from the start, we did star gate last year but not sure hubby is as much of a fan as I am, Evil or Very Mad

I just did a quick Google and apparently yep, they do have American funding. Could be a bit iffy, but then the new season has always been a bit iffy what with all the new characters they're introducing I guess.

Apparently the new one begins with something happening and no one being able to die anymore (which technically Supernatural already did, but It'll probably be hugely different....I hope).

Well Captain Jack can't die anyway so I guess its not too far fetched. I just hope they don't have a bunch of americans in the new cast :? I love how dark it was and interwoven with the Doctor who world.

that's alot of americans in one go. i want WELSH accents in my Torchwood thankyou!!!!


you'll def find dr who/torchwood fans here. my household is obsessed. we have daleks, TARDIS, all the doctors, cybermen etc. littering our home. today at work i did an electronic workshop where the kids all made circuits that flash and buzz and when put in a cardboard casing look like a Dalek (but isn't called as such for copyright reasons). Geekage all round!

i can't stand torchwood but i have a soft spot for older doctor who episodes (not the new ones from christopher eccleston to that other guy), and i think we're all in agreement that MATT SMITH IS THE BEST DOCTOR WAY BETTER THAN THAT DAVID GUY OKAY? i could live without amy, she does thing weird thing with her eyes that annoys me.

oh, and BRING BACK PEROXIDE JOHN SIMMS.

i actually thought i had been in doctor who when i was a kid Embarassed i think the character i was named after was a baby in the series at some point and i assumed that, having the same name, it'd been me when i was a baby. then when i found out it wasn't i cried Smilie_PDT

mr. eccleston's time on the show was marred by billie piper's time on the show. i liked martha, but not rose. way to ruin it for everyone, billie!



edit - actually, in ten's instance also billie piper ruined it. maybe i wouldn't dislike mr. tennant so much if billie piper wasn't in it. hmmm...
