So I take it you don't have Netflix? That's how I've been watching it.

Like I said before, I recommend checking the library. If the branch you go to doesn't have it, see if you can do an interlibrary loan for them.

When is the new Doctor Who episodes coming out anyway?


This fall allegedly, and that Rory, Amy, and River will be back but not for the whole season. There are other rumors that are MUCH less realistic like the return of Captain Jack and the Master, and the addition of more aliens from Classic Who since you can't run a franchise on just Daleks, Cybermen, and the Master.

Guess I'll check out the library.
This fall?!? :dead:

Oh, that is very interesting. I am going to hope this will be one of the good licensed games.

I dunno... Most licensed games (with a few exceptions) suck. Anything Superman, for example.

Let's see...

Kingdom Hearts (Disney)
Epic Mickey (Disney)
X-Men Legends
Batman Arkham Asylum
Sailor Moon Another Story
DC Universe Online
Project DIVA (Vocaloid)

While bad licensed games are still sadly more common than good ones, there are enough good ones that it shouldn't be an assumed fact.

I just hope this isn't like the old side scroller where you blast your enemies with the sonic screwdriver. But, at least you got to play as multiple Doctors.

My apologies to Spidey and his fans. I did watch his cartoon in the early 90s, but I never really got into him and forgot that he had some very nice games.

Doctor Whooves t-shirt.

Hot Topic is clearly trying to seduce me. I think it's working.

In non-pony Doctor Who news, I started on the Third Doctor last week. It's really weird watching it in color after spending so long with the black-and-white episodes.

I'm going to watch "The Claws of Axos" tonight and then I'm going to take a month off to watch Game of Thrones and the first Nanoha series. I probably should have stopped after Liz's last serial, but I didn't know it was her last one until I had "Terror of the Autons" already. It's too bad she only lasted a season, because I rather liked her. She was like a less lovestruck version of Martha. But now I'm on to Jo, and she's like a mashup of Vicki and Rose.

In the western English speaking world you mean. :tongue: I've never heard anything about that show until I first got internet some years ago.

I've heard much about Doctor Who but never actually watched it.

I've seen the first few episodes of the new Doctor Who, the episodes that introduce Rose and the ones following.

And I dunno, I think it's too....zany? I love sci-fi, but for example, I LOVED Caprica. That was sci-fi that was solid and very character-driven. I felt that the Who episodes I saw were mostly plot-driven.

And the filming style looks strange to me. Maybe it's a British thing?

Well, you started in what I think is the right place for a new viewer, so that's not it.

I think it's just not your thing. If it were something simple, I could attempt to convert you, but this is a fundamental matter of taste. You like character-driven sci-fi, and Doctor Who isn't.

Honestly, I think that's part of the appeal. The Doctor is the ultimate in Manic Pixie Dream Boys, come to whisk his new friend away into an exciting journey across space and time. The show is ultimately about him, and that's where you have to look for your character development. His companions, even in the old series, are ultimately intended to be audience surrogates. It's even more obvious in the New series because these companions are women who have been living the most mundane lives with little meaning until the Doctor comes along in his big blue box.

We're supposed to like/relate to Rose because she's leading an outwardly fulfilling life. She has a boyfriend and a job, and that's all that matters, right? Don't aspire for more. Be happy with what you have. You have a man and a job, shut up.

Then she meets the Doctor. He tells her and shows her that there's more to life than being a shopgirl in Cardiff....that there's more to HER.

That's been the overarching message of New!Who: You are important. Everyone is important.

As for the cinematography, I think it's partly a British thing, but there's not much British sci-fi bouncing around, so it's hard to compare.

For those who show interest in watching the classic series from the start:

Unfortunately, many episodes are likely to never show up again, because it was allegedly a common practice in British Television to air such shows LIVE and rarely tape them anyway and even if they were, the tapes would only a short time later be actually DELETED to be reused for the next series (Evergreens like "The Avengers" suffer from the same problem) due to the always tight and low-cut budget the producers were bound to.

Still, some of said episodes tend to return from oblivion one after another, usually on 16mm film or 8mm home video, and in cases where the audio track (or the simultaneously produced radio drama version) was preserved it can be combined with production stills or flash animation replacing the real life footage! :mrgreen:

Since I'm such a huge fan of the show, I decided (along with influence from Kero-chan our very good lord and master) to start a Doctor Who thread, that will be discussing the latest episodes of the show.

Robot of Sherwood

The fact that it was going to star Robin Hood, every fan knew that this was going to be a light-hearted adventure. Which it certainly was. But even with that knowledge there was still something quite off about this episode.

Compare this Historical comedy to The Unicorn and the Wasp, in which the comedy and drama worked together to create something ridiculous yet brilliant. The episode even covered an historical event, the mystery of Agatha Christie's disappearance. (Which did happen in real life) Also it took its time to show us the atmosphere of the period, as well as giving us three dimensional characters.

Robot of Sherwood however goes at a fast pace, which prohibits us from soaking up the history around the characters. Also the fact that it reveals that Robin Hood is real, rubs me the wrong way. To understand, try to imagine if the show said that Sailor Moon was real, and an episode took place in Neo- Crystal Tokyo. Or if it said Sherlock Holmes was real, and we ended up in Baker Street.

Doctor Who has always tried to avoid fantasy as much as possible, and tried to be realistic as it can, despite the aliens, TARDIS, and regeneration. Heck, the show has established that fantasy characters live in their own dimension "The Land of Fiction" (The Mind Robber) So if this story was set there, it wouldn't have been a problem.

However there are great performances all around, the fight sequences are pretty good, and the robots are cool as well. (Although why this wasn't called RobotS of Sherwood, I'll never know.)

The humour can be fun at times, but sometimes it can fail. For example that bit in the dungeon where the Doctor and Robin are arguing with each other, did get annoying after a while. Also Clara being mistaken as the leader was pretty obvious, even my dad called it minutes before the punchline hit.

The golden arrow hitting the spaceship is something that fans will probably like to forget. The Merry Men while funny, were generally useless in the story. And I don't know about you but I'm getting pretty tired of aliens in historical events.
Can't we just have a simple historical story like in the Classic Series and the Big Finish audios? Something that Vincent and the Doctor probably wanted to be, before Moffat edited the script.

Now don't get me wrong, I didn't hate this episode. I found it pretty entertaining but not as good as Into the Dalek. However I'm still waiting for a story that cements Peter as the Doctor, and hopefully this next story "Listen" will do just that.

6/10

It was a good episode, but I can't say it was great. By the end I felt somewhat unfulfilled, like I only got half an episode. The biggest problem was that they tried cramming too much into the episode and nothing seemed to have any room for development or explanation. For instance, why did robots from 41st Century Earth end up in 12th century England? With their technological supremacy, why join forces with the sheriff, rather than taking over themselves? If gold was so important for repairing the ship, why would the robots let anyone waste any on making a golden arrow?

Quote:
Also the fact that it reveals that Robin Hood is real, rubs me the wrong way.


It wasn't the first time Doctor Who has established Robin Hood as real. In "The Thief of Sherwood", the First Doctor, Ian and Barbra met Robin Hood. In "The Immortals" he taught the Fifth Doctor how to shoot a bow, and in the K9 episode "The Oak Tree", K-9 suggests that he met Robin Hood (he sees a hologram and states that it should be shorter).

It's more likely than not that the writers were unaware of any of these. The Whoniverse has become so large and has so many novels, comics and spin-off series, it regularly backtracks and goes against itself, creating a big messy ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.

I think the "Robin Hood is real" is to cement this whole "Promised land/Heaven" that everyone is trying to get to (Why robots are trying to get to a promised land confuses me).

Quote:

Episode 7 IS called "Kill the Moon" :mischief:

I disagree. I found it funny.

Quote:

THIS NEVER HAPPENED.

Quote:
The Merry Men while funny, were generally useless in the story. And I don't know about you but I'm getting pretty tired of aliens in historical events.


They were so useless I didn't get the point of having them beyond them "being necessary because we have Robin Hood".

As for aliens, it depends. Some of them (Unicorn and the Wasp, or Vincent and the Doctor) can be really well done and make for memorable episodes. Others (like this one, and the one that introduced the silly rainbow-clown Daleks) fall sadly flat.

(This is what happens when you make rainbow-clown Daleks. The Universe is now broken and can never be fixed.)
Image

Though I will agree that, if he can travel anywhere in time and space, it doesn't make a lot of sense for episodes to take place in historical events. Doctor Who brings in enough from merchandising, they could probably make an entire planet for each episode.

This episode is a fairly weak one. It has a few funny moments and Capaldi does well and the character interactions are interesting, but there's too much filler material crammed into the episode and it shows. It felt rushed and somewhat sloppy, like a last-minute idea thrown together because what they really wanted to do didn't come through. It leaves almost no impression beyond disappointment and is easily forgotten.

The logic on this one was sub-par, even for a show that occasionally disregards logic to make up its own rules. The enemies were flat and had no room to be developed into anything but seemingly mindless killing machines and their reason for joining the sheriff wasn't there. The Merry Men were there for comedic effect (and failed miserably) and Robin Hood really wasn't that interesting.

4/10

I'm trying to find a good Doctor Who meet up somewhere near where I live (Alliance Ohio). I'm actually planning this cool fem 4th Doctor cosplay. I'm also planning on writing fan letters to Tom Baker and David Tennant. Wish me luck on getting them answered. ^u^

Have seasons 1-4 already been released then or were they skipped to catch up with the west? I thought they might translate the title differently so that the "question in plain sight" reference makes sense.

I love Doctor Who, but struggle with Moffat's writing sometimes as it can have many plotholes.

They've been skipped, season 1 and 2 were shown on Japanese TV, but were not great successes. According to audiences, they found it too British.

While Moffat's era is arguably becoming too Americanized and loosing it's British identity to appeal to people overseas. Guess that explains why they skipped to season 5.

Well Capaldi's era has calmed down. And we do have the return of the cynical Doctor. Which to me is very British.

Time will tell, but "Robot of Sherwood" was more like a theatre production of "Robin Hood" and could have done with being just a touch more realistic in my opinion. Didn't like how every detail from the book was true. This sounds more like a tale that a writer would exaggerate or embellish. Still, it was supposed to be lighthearted, but I did spend the whole episode, like the Doctor, waiting for the curtain to drop, then became disappointed when it didn't.

I did enjoyed "Listen". I think Moffat is just struggling to figure out how to best write Capaldi's doctor.

I guess I'm still frustrated our Season 1-7 Blu ray release was inferior to the US set as well.

Were the multicoloured Daleks not well recieved, is that why they were tossed away?
