Woohoo....tomorrow night BBC 1 - Davros looks to be back!

This is definitely one for taping, given how good the new series is so far.

I'll even get my radio-controlled Dalek to watch it. Give him ideas.

Yeah, I can't wait. This season has been quite good, too bad they're taking next year off. (There'll be specials, though) I hope the doctor finally gets killed and regenerates, I like Tennant but his mannerisms are becoming a bit trite.

True, but he is drop dead gorgeous. Er, my wife tells me...

Have you seen the Library story? I really took to that one.

And second thoughts, looking again at the trailer, it could just be the return of the renegade from the last series...but I still hope for Davros to glide out of the wings.

According to doctorwhoforums, there's a shot in the trailer that shows Davros's hand. (I never watched the old series, so I've no clue)

Tennant is a handsome fellow, even though he appears to be quite malnourished.

im sorry, i stopped watching Dr. Who when i turned 4. no, seriously, they cant act. the original dr who (of the new series, don't know his name) was the only person who could act. why did they get rid him? or did he leave? i don't like the new one, he seems iffy.

...regenerates as a woman?

Agreed, superb episode. Taken at breakneck speed, but perhaps a little too rushed pace-wise.

And are my ears playing up? When the first two Daleks get to UNIT & break down the wall, the first says "All UNIT forces will be exterminated" or similar, and then I swear the second Dalek said "...And I hate UNIT!"

Surely not. Daleks? Jokes?

Wonder how the next series'll fare with Russell D no longer at the helm.

Very exciting episode on saturday, can't wait to see what happens, who is the new doctor?

Yeah, but the new chief writer is Stephen Moffat. He was the one who wrote the empty child episode (series one), the girl in the fireplace (series two), the excellent blink (series three) and the library episodes (this series), i.e. all the scary ones!

No one knows if he'll actually regenerate to another body, and even if he does, if the change'll be permanent. (One second out of time, Medusa Cascade, Donna's back, Os key, timey wimey)

Good news that the writer of The Library is still onboard.

I reckon the Medusa Cascade will allow a few wrinkles in the serial regeneration. Same Doctor I'll bet. I hope. I liked him.

My r/c Dalek fainted btw. Too much excitement.
