I think this is the least excited I've ever been about a new season of Doctor who. The trailer just wasn't all that interesting, and really, Daleks again? I'm getting completely fed up with the inability to be creative with enemies and just reusing the same ones over and over. /rant
New season of MLP: FiM on the other hand...
Dr Who without the Daleks who be like Star Trek without Klingons
Exactly. If they lose all the old baddies everyone would be complaining about that too. I think they've kept a good mix of oldies - Daleks and Cybermen are just good inventions** - and new creations... the Angels are probably the best new ones although the Ood are cool too.
**although they've done their best to screw them up making them friendly and emotional
Re: Doctor Who?
you said "and hasn't there been at least one daleks episode in _every_ series of Dr Who?"
In a word - No.
IIRC, Tom Baker did 7 years of Dr Who and met the Daleks twice - In fact, until Dr Who was revived, most Doctors didn't see the Daleks every new series of episodes. Same goes for the Cybermen as well.
Re: Bowl of petunias..
FFS.....He's a time traveler, he is bound to bump into them in the past.
Add to that we know there are still some of the new daleks still around. Plus they could always bring some in using dalek time tunnel tech.....
Bringing back Davros would be a stretch but all else is possible.
Actually, I'm pretty curious how they're going to revive them again.
Because in the last 'full' Dalek episode (Victory of the Daleks iirc) they basically "fell" out of time and in the end returned to their own timeline but this time in full strength. To my understanding this own timeline was within the timewar.
Re: Liked Amy...
I quite liked Rory. Well, the Doctor/Rory interplay anyway, not so much the Rory / Amy stuff. The way the Doctor would just nod at Rory to tell him to go after Amy, or tell him secrets about stuff in a low voice... it rather reminded me of the relationship he had with Ian Chesterton - a kind of unvoiced, shared chivalry when things got dangerous.
Heartbreaking Exit? (Speculation)
I am confused if Amy is going to exit in this episode. Whilst it seems possible, the trailer for the series shows her in several other episodes - one with dinosaurs and one (seemingly) set in the Wild West. It seems doubtful that either or both of these are the Asylum of the Daleks episode this one (apparently) is. So either she carries on after her exit or we're being misinformed about her leaving in this episode.
Re: Heartbreaking Exit? (Speculation)
I think the article is saying that she departs during this season, not the first episode of the season.
If the new companion doesn't appear until the xmas special then I'm guessing we've got a whole lotta Amy Pond-age for at least 12 of the 13 episodes in this season.
Re: Heartbreaking Exit? (Speculation)
Thanks. That lead into the article could do with some clean-up if that's what they meant.
Also - gah: more Amy Pond. Liked her at first, but she got really boring about half way through her first season for me. She was great in The Girl Who Waited, though. One of the few good episodes of Season Six, imo.
Interesting Show Titles
I wonder if the titles from which these titles seem to be derived give any hints as to how the shows will play... Nah!
Asylum of the Daleks = Asylum of the Damned
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship = Snakes on a Plane
A Town Called Mercy = A Town Called Panic (or A Town Called Malice)
The Power of Three = The Power of Six
The Angels Take Manhattan = Jason Takes Manhattan (or the Muppets, or any number of others)
another load of over hyped dull repetetive crud from the bbc.
actors who cannot act,script writers with no imagination but makes the bbc loads of cash for licenceing shitty plastic toys.
cor,what a wonderful service the bbc provide.
repeat,repeat,over blown olympics that a decent student geek group could do better,repeat,repeat.
dull expensive service that i will be glad not to have to pay for when i get rid of tv next year.
