The Doctor in The Hospital Again?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Ever come across a news story that makes you do a double take? Well I came across this article, and just for a moment I thought of The Doctor. As you can see, it is possible to have multiple hearts and not be a Timelord.

Who Tours

Posted by: Dr. Geek

So how many of you would travel to Europe just to go on a tour of locations used in Doctor Who? Well, okay, I would, but I have a Ph.D. in geekness :) Recently I found a few articles concerning two different tours. Check them out here and here.

Some day I hope to go on one of these or a similar tour. The closest I ever came to such a tour was when I spent the day in Paris going to a few locations used in Highlander the TV series. I know a few people who have gone to Canada for a Due South / Forever Knight tour which sounded like a whole lot of fun.

What Doctor Who location would you want to visit? I wonder how many people are caught standing on the secret entrance to the Torchwood Hub?

It Was All About The Last Six Minutes ….

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Okay, maybe not exactly the last six minutes but those that saw The Waters of Mars know what I mean.

I want to stay away from spoilers here, as the episode still has to have its American debut, but my initial reaction was, there was nothing special about this special. I am not knocking the acting or the production design. The Flood, the monsters in this episode, were creepy.

That said, I was getting ready to report that there was nothing unique about this episode till the last few minutes.

The big question now is, is it too late to develop the consequences of that ending considering a regeneration is only a month or so away.

What did you think?

Coolest Dad Ever

Posted by: Dr. Geek

My friend Chris, just had a Doctor Who themed birthday party for his son. He set it up so his son could play The Doctor and the guests were the companions. They even had a TARDIS.

Okay it was made out of cardboard, but still, Chris should get bonus points for the effort.

Has anyone else been to a Doctor Who party lately? What are you planning for Halloween?

Question: Who is Your Favorite Doctor?

Posted by: Whochick

9th Doctor in Bad Wolf

I’ve got a quick question for you all at this point. Who is your favorite Doctor?

1. William Hartnell
2. Patrick Troughton
3. Jon Pertwee
4. Tom Baker
5. Peter Davison
6. Colin Baker
7. Sylvester McCoy
8. Paul McGann
9. Christopher Eccleston
10. David Tennant
11. Matt Smith (who has not yet begun…)
12. (other, please explain)


What’s that? Who did *I* choose?

Well, I did a great deal of thinking on the topic, and I’m going to have to go with the Ninth Doctor. He’s barely managed to edge out Ten. Just barely, mind. I think I like his “presence” the most. Honestly, I’d choose both of them if I could, but I made the rules and I must stick by them. I only get to choose one of the Doctor’s selves.

Your turn.

Too Soon for The Doctor’s Greatest Moments?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Do not get me wrong, I am enjoying the three part mini series – Doctor Who Greatest Moments, but since the show only focuses on the “New Who”, it seems odd that they would feel the need to have such a retrospective so soon?

Do people really have that short of a memory? Is series 5 really going to be that different?

I think this mini-mini series has less to do with celebrating Who, and more with the realization that they spred the 10th Doctor’s final stories too far appart, and they needed something Who related to fill the gap.

As cool as this mini series has been I would have preferred new content.

What do you think?

WHO Have You Met?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Hello again, Dr. Geek here:

I just wanted to create a quick post to let everyone know I will be attending the San Diego Comic Con next week.

This will be my first Comic Con and I plan to report back here with my reactions. In fact I am sure we will devote a segment to it on an upcoming podcast.

So this got me to thinking, Who have you met? Through the years I have met several actors from Classic Trek and its spin-offs, and from the world of Who, I have met The 6th Doctor and Peri. I am really looking forward this time to meeting Captain Jack, and The 10th Doctor himself, David Tennant. I also heard a rumor that The 6th Doctor is going to be there. It would be FANtastic if the two regenerations spent some time on stage.

I am also looking forward to this convention for personal reasons. As some of you know my wife Debbie is a NY Times Best Selling Novelist. She made her first professional appearance at Comic Con when I was finishing Law School, and at the time I could not get away from my studies to join her. This time though I get to be there for all the fun.

If any of you are going to be at Comic Con, reply to this site, let us know what you thought of the convention, and join us at Debbie’s appearance at the panel titled “Care and Feeding of a Series.”

It’s a long wait after all

Posted by: Dr. Geek

Greetings all,

Today I bring you a bit of news. According to several news articles around the net, the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine is reporting that the next special after Planet of the Dead will air this coming Christmas.

If true, there is going to be a long wait in this gap year.

Has anyone else heard about such a long wait between specials?

What Brings You to Who?

Posted by: Dr. Geek

I for one enjoy Dr. Who because unlike most sci-fi and fantasy shows, Dr. Who can be just about anything.

Since 1963, Dr. Who has told all tyopes of stories, ranging from historical, to action and adventure. Thanks to the TARDIS, the characters on Dr. Who are not limited to a court room procedural format, or the predictable requirements of a sitcom.

So what brings you to Who?
