@Deus_Ex_Machina I agree with you, Deus. The thing about Gaiman is that as he works more on a project, his writing gets better. He's my favorite writer but honestly, the first few issues of The Sandman were almost pedestrian. Once he wrote "The Sound of Her Wings", the whole thing fell in place, which Gaiman himself as said.


So his Who scripts get better and netter. The last one was excellent. I expect his next one to blow me away.

@AndySmulian @TeriCrossChetwood @Polyphase Thank you, Andy. It would indeed help if we were talking about the TV series, but in the two Cushing movies, the Doctor is literally "Dr. Who". That's his name. He's from Earth and TARDIS (not "the" TARDIS) was built by Dr. Who in the shape of a police box for no logical reason.

@InfiniDaZa I think you're reading too much into it. It's not even the real TARDIS, just a facade with a light behind it.

Whether you liked his writing or not, give RTD kudos for getting it on the air. Without him, it would have been longer before DW was back.


I'm an old Who fan, but RTD & co. have given us some good stories. In particular, I thought 'Human Nature" amd "Family of Blood" were good. Not all of them were great, but some wonderful moments were in there.

@Deus_Ex_Machina I thought David Tennant looked noticeably older. So? Patrick Troughton was playing the part many years after he left. It's not the age, it's the actor, and DT and MS are both brilliant.


Personally, I can't wait for the 100th anniversary, which Chris Eccleston has agreed to appear in. I look forward to seeing them wheel him out in his wheelchair, looking like Davros. :)

@Polyphase The two movies are based on the first two Dalek stories in the series, "The Daleks" and "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", both of which still exist in the BBC archives and on DVD.


I found the two movies to be fun to watch. In color and with a bigger budget, they show what could have been done on the series with enough dosh to make it happen.


Peter Cushing's Dr. Who is very different from Hartnell's Doctor. He's more whimsical and far less grouchy. But yeah, I enjoyed them and still have DVD copies in my library. Sometimes you just want to veg out, and they're both good for that.


The only odd thing is the TARDIS: Why is it in the shape of a police box? It's never explained. And while the exterior is the same, the interior is not. In the first movie, it looks like a mad scientist's laboratory, full of chemicals. In the second, it got a fancy-ancy sci-fi machine look, but neither is as cool as the original console.

@enahcs1 I suspect Grandma Reid is long gone... But he'd still sell her soul. And her vote.

I guess Colorado pot dealers have contributed to Mr. Reid's campaign. Nice to know he supports interstate commerce.

 @Zenmon Just Mr. Obama's extreme views, right?
