By the way. Have you seen any Sarah Jane Adventures?

I've just watched S4, and they are spectacular compared to the Mother Ship. Monsters far more scary and much better stories.


I saw the first one, Invasion of the Bane. Didn't impress me, though it was okay, I guess. Poor Liz Sladen, though. :cry:

I'm sending them all to Del, so perhaps you can borrow them? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

OK, the Bane wasn't exactly a brilliant one, but if you get a chance, they're well worth the watch.

I'm gutted that the final ones won't be released for ages yet.

I watch S4 at the weekend, and in the Extras was 4 episodes of a Tom Baker/Lis Sladen story (forgotten the name, but it was to do with Egyptian mummies).

God the effects were awful, and so was the acting!! I fell asleep during Ep. 2. :oops:

I can get the first 3 series from my local library if I really wanted.

:shock: :x

You're talking about Pyramids of Mars? But that was one of my favourites from that era! It was one of the best!!!

You'd clearly fall asleep during any episode of the classic series. :roll:

Still, just to sell the show to you, here's a much better trailer...

And then, there is a very funny pseudo-documentary detailing the career of Sutekh after Pyramids of Mars: Oh Mummy! If you don't like the story, you'll still laugh at this. :lol:

Would gladly pass them on Bounce. But Q is a very private person. Can only pass them on if we meet up.

Ohhhhhhhh... we got the new old ones you sent Bounce. Muwahs . Just trying to figure out how to play them without some kind of commentary over them. Hmmm. Thanks Bouncy.

I have been a fan of the Doctor Who revival - Eccleston was great, Tennant won me around, but things took a downward turn with Smith and a definite nosedive when Moffat took over from Davies. The only thing really carrying the series lately seems to be Karen Gillian's legs. I can't really comment too much on this season because after forcing myself to sit through the first six episodes I couldn't bring myself to watch the second half.

Oh dear....... and soon Karen legs are to depart....... yeah its been a but slapdash of late. Really really shows up now our ABC have started showing the whole thing from Eccleston on.... even the children said something to me about it.

I haven't been convinced by Matt Smith yet but for Moffat's episodes have always stood out as being the exceptional episodes. They make you think more and have a darker tone.

I do agree that the series has declined in quality since Moffat took over. Even so, one cannot deny that there are some excellent episodes. There were:

The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone

Amy's Choice

The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood

Vincent and the Doctor

The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon

The Doctor's Wife

The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People

The God Complex


But the series in overall quality has definitely declined. The series needs a new showrunner.

I wish Russel T. Davies would come back :( Remember 'The girl in the fireplace' and 'Doomsday' they were so great and heart-breaking :) ... and I miss David as well. Sigh.
