I can't get into the new Doctor Who series, it gets dafter & dafter.


That was easily the best line in a pretty poor episode which was just trying to lay down some markers for the rest of the series without bothering to tell a half decent story at the same time.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

:lol:

Season openers are rarely excellent, anyway, in the new series, with only The Impossible Astronaut and Asylum of the Daleks being the exceptions.

What about Mel? Or Amy? They were way worse than Rose IMO.

Believe it or not, she's actually better in some of the audio adventures. She's actually tolerable in the two I have listened to so far featuring her, and indeed, you could say that one of them, The Juggernauts, is her finest hour.

I just remember her as Violet Elizabeth Botts from Just William. She was just like the same annoying character in Doctor Who.

Well, in The Juggernauts...
Spoiler: show
...not only does she call out the Doctor for working with the Daleks (not that he had a choice, really), but after Davros commits one atrocity too many, she sics a group of Mechonoids on him, and nearly kills him. :shock:


Funny thing about Bonnie Langford as a child actor. I recall an anecdote about a play she was in as a kid that Noel Coward watched. Apparently a horse crapped on stage, and Coward was later heard to remark that if they had shoved Langford's head up the horse's derriere, they would have solved two problems at once. :roll:

Apropos of nothing, I just watched, courtesy of the special edition DVD of The Aztecs, a recently found episode of Doctor Who. The third episode of Galaxy 4 (Air Lock) to be precise. You can tell that that episode was really made on the cheap. But story-wise, it wasn't too bad.
