Tonights episode is glorifying England again, this time they travel to 2012 for the London Olympics. Its another horror one, with the classic 'monsters in the closet' by the looks of it.

And then, after that... finale! Yay. Thanks to the beauty of torrenting and time differences, I should see tonights at around 3 in the afternoon. Fun, fun.

Unfortunately, I leave for a month without internet access three or four days before both the release of the last Who episode, FMA Chapter 61, and both Bleach and Naruto chapter releases dry.gif

That won't be fun.

They really pushed the closeness of Rose and the Doctor in this episode...in other words something bad is about to happen to one of them and of course we know its Rose. Lots of questions popped up in this episode, but whether they will all be answered in the next two eps who knows.

I don't think Rose is going to die I might add. They suggest it far too much. Oh and just in case anyone cares...notice the girl who screams in the preview fpr the next ep? She is rumuoured to be the next 'Who Girl'.

In other words, test the water to see how people take to it before it reaches mainstream TV. Still, thanks for the info Popo.

I really like the new Doctor Who series. I like Rose as well. I didn't know her as a pop star which is probably why I like her and have no preconceived notions about her. I grew up on Doctor Who but got tired of it when I went to college. I started watching the new show and it is quite an improvement in my opinion.

[spoiler]I spoiled myself and watched the last episode of the last season on You Tube. It kind of reminded me Of Conquerer if Ed could have said goodbye to Winry. Ok I'll get out of my fantasy world! rolleyes.gif tongue.gif [/spoiler]

Torchwood begins soon, Capn Jack taking the lead role. The ads for it look great but I don't have BBC 3 sad.gif . Curse you digital freeview.

Torchwood is rather pleasing. It's more aimed at adults (use of casual swearing = realism) and a briliant location (ok I may be biased here as it's my home town.)

[spoiler]Remember when Rose revived Captain Jack after the first Major battle with the Daleks? It may have had some intresting effects.[/spoiler]

I'm watching the second episode as I type so expect an update soonish.

EDIT
Ok it's certainly aimed at adults.
[spoiler]Death by sex is not a good way to go, especialy when being watched by a pervy night club bouncer.
[/spoiler]

On a more vital note, Jack's coat is rather nice. I think I have one like that in the back of my closet...

As a rule I'd say for ages 13 and up if your watching alone or with friends and 16 plus if your watching with Mum and Dad...

I wonder how this will go down in the U.S? Mainly because of the Welsh accent. I'm not saying its terrible but some UK accents cannot be understood by those outside the UK. But thank gawd for the BBC, Chi gets to watch it too...just a few days after Popo and Monkey.

Plenty Doctor Who eps were filmed in Cardiff, its based in BBC Wales, its just now 'set' in it too.

And as I stated before some of the swearing seemed needless...children will watch this show as they know its connected to Doctor Who.

[spoiler]The alien you see in the first ep that tears the janitors throat out looked like some campy Buffy cast off...and the blood gushing from his throat was a tad OTT[/spoiler]

David Tennant....also known as Barty Crouch Jnr in Harry Potter....does make a good Dr but I just can't stand Rose. I only really think the Brits will know who Billie Piper is, and they will roll their eyes at her as well.

Last nights were-wolf ep was more aimed at kids then anyone. And the reason his Scottish accent was so good is because he is actually Scottish. Still I enjoyed it, and guess most others did too.


David Tennant is soooo gorgeous as well as his Scottish accent, and he's also appeared in Cassanova on Masterpiece Theatre two weeks ago....I just started to cry. He's also smoldering good as a lovelorn cop in Viva Blackpool on BBC America long ago. Praise for him biggrin.gif

But alas, apart from the actor, these shows have nothing to do with Doctor Who. But hey if you start a David Tennant love thread I'll join.

And I have heard there will be no sidekick for a while in the new series....go solo Doc!

The BBC is trying to draw in the 18-25 market. The swearing wasn't gratuitous and children swear a lot anyway. Little git's.

Subtitles. At least it wasn't a Liverpudlian or Geordie accent..

Haha no those accents ARE subtitled, least I heard 'The Full Monty' was subtitled.

And no the swearing wasn't too bad, but rather than say 'thats a load of cr*p' it was 'thats a load of b****cks'. I watched (part) of it with my 12 year old sister and she will have heard it all before. Thank God you mentioned the smex in it before we saw it Popo...turned it off before it got to that. I can cope with lil sis hearing naughty words but other things are a no-no.

I bet you there will be complaints though, parents saying kids are bound to want to watch it even if it isn't aimed at them.
