Ever since the 2005 relaunch I've been a huge fan of this show...

Was the original show popular in the US?


I've liked all three of the new doctors though David Tennant is my favourite.

The original Doctor Who used to air on CTV here in Canada in the afternoons back in the 80s.  I would watch it sometimes when I'd come home for lunch from school.  One thing I always remembered about the original Doctor Who was an episode that featured Leee John from the R&B group Imagination

The head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who, Steven Moffat, is to step down from the show, the BBC has confirmed. His last series will go out in spring 2017 following a Christmas special, after which he will be replaced by Broadchurch writer Chris Chibnall. Moffat took over the reins on series five of the world's longest running sci-fi series in 2010. BBC One's controller, Charlotte Moore, said Moffat was an "absolute genius".

and now watching the clock begins... I am wondering if Capaldi is going to stay on. I hope so, because he is the most like Tom Baker who is my favorite. I know there are fans that said they hated the way Moffat handled The Doctor but I liked  his work, just like I like his work on Sherlock.

I started watching this in September, 2014, and have seen all the seasons from the reboot since then, I'm a big fan of this show, but I hate admitting it to people I know. Everyone I know thinks it's really weird, I'm waiting on the Christmas special this year, it's not very far away.

That's only because they haven't watched it. ;D ;D If they gave it a chance they would see how intelligent and interesting the writing is. Oh yes and definitely weird-one of the best aspects to be sure!

If you like the reboot and after, go back and check out some of the older ones, especially the Tom Baker era.  :)

Jodie Whittaker: Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord to be a woman

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-40624288

Jodie Whittaker has been announced as Doctor Who's 13th Time Lord - the first woman to be given the role. The new Doctor's identity was revealed in a trailer broadcast at the end of the Wimbledon men's singles final. The Broadchurch star succeeds Peter Capaldi, who took over the role in 2013 and leaves in the forthcoming Christmas special. Whittaker, 35, said it was "overwhelming, as a feminist" to become the next Doctor. She will make her debut on the sci-fi show when the Doctor regenerates in the Christmas special.

The 13th doctor is a woman! This is pretty amazing actually. It shows that the new writer is willing to take a risk and not play it safe. I think this could either be spectacularly bad or spectacularly good!

A lot of people are freaking out about the announcement in a negative way. I personally don't mind if The Doctor is a man or a woman, just be a good Doctor.

The first official photo of Jodie Whittaker as she will appear in Doctor Who has been released.
The Broadchurch and Trust Me star has begun filming as the 13th Time Lord. Whittaker, the first female Doctor, takes over from Peter Capaldi and will make her debut on screen when the Doctor regenerates in the Christmas special on BBC One. When her casting was announced in July, she said it felt "overwhelming, as a feminist" to have the role. She told fans not to be "scared" by her gender.

When is the regeneration set to occur? I am a former Whovian who got turned off by how formulaic this show is, but I could be coaxed back if they decide to mix things up now that they've got this female Doctor.

The Christmas special this year, Twice Upon A Time will have Peter's regeneration to Jodie. I can't wait to see Peter and David (Bradley) both playing off of each other as 1 and 12 and neither wanting to regenerate.  :) Although I am said that Peter is going.

No, it is going to show Capaldi regenerate, but in this one the First Doctor makes an appearance, and he is struggling with the idea of regenerating as well, so, parallel storylines, is what I have gathered.

I thought the special was nice. Not mind blowing, but sweet. Gonna use a spoiler tag just in case someone hasn't had the chance to see it yet.


Peter had a good send off; and his advice for the next Doctor was perfect- :\'(.
I liked that they used the Rose/Bad Wolf music in part of the regeneration scene.
Nardole's invisible hair!  ;D
I also liked the hinting at female regeneration throughout the show with the first Doctor's patronizing ideas of females- that made me chuckle, even though Hartnell's Doctor wasn't like that.
When Peter's cover-up ring dropped from Jodi's hand, that was a nice touch.
Seeing Clara- briefly- was nice as well.
Even better was Bill. I love Pearl Mackie.
The WW1 Captain was a Lethbridge-Stewart!
So many callbacks to previous episodes,storylines and Doctors. I will have to watch it a few times to catch them all.
The biggest criticism I have is that the TARDIS had a tantrum and kicked the new Doctor out mid-flight. I know this was a callback episode, but, this has been done a couple-few times in the past, and I would have preferred they go in a different direction for Jodi.
---Unless Moffat was getting in one last jab at the fans who didn't like him in general, and more specifically, the fans that are rejecting a female Doctor

Well..watched the pilot with jodi and not disappointed.
It's just a pilot ep, and with so much new-ness it was bound to be a bit awkward/clunky but it did not retract from the show. She really smashed it.  :) Extended version will be on in a few and am watching again.

So nice to see Who back.
