    Which is fine, but I don't quote understand why you persist in watching and discussing a show you hate so much.

    I assume he watches it in the hope it will get better again (I do that with some shows I once liked that went downhill).

    Yeah, I can understand that, I'm that way with my soaps (and some were cancelled just as they were getting better *shoots deathglares at ABC*) and I was that way with Star Trek with Voyager and Enterprise. (Enterprise was getting good in the final season, and then Berman torpedoed it by crapping all over that finale).

    Anyway, I got bored, looked through YouTube and found this:

    I had plans to schedule an in-store at the Dublin shop, but I will now plan to revolve my next trip home around Tom Baker month. Hopefully, they have K9 Awareness Week in there, somewhere...

    That kid's favorite Doctor became his adoptive father. Luckiest kid ever.

    Matt Smith's American accent is like a 1920s Brooklyn accent. But hey, I guess that counts. [face_laugh]

    Do you mean in A Town Called Mercy? I'm trying to recall where else I'd have heard it.

    Hahaha, Arthur's the best but still bad. Matt is apparently a 30s gangster. And I'm not sure Karen has ever heard what an American sounds like.

    Yeah, the gangster comment in regard's to Matt's American accent are all over the comments at the YouTube video page.,

    Personally, I nearly died laughing when they got to the Sarah Palin tweet.

    So I bought The Snowmen on iTunes HD not long after it was broadcast here in Australia and today I got this email:

    So I don't quite get it, is this saying it shouldn't have been available to begin with? I had a brief look and it seems that they have removed the episode from the iTunes store.

    That's strange. Maybe it's all apart of the "Doctor being forgotten' plotline.

    Things found via YouTube:



    Why, again didn't we ever get a 8th Doctor TV series? Oh yeah, because BBC was stupid enough to team with FOX, the place where most good sci-fi goes to die.

    I haven't heard how he's portrayed in the audio dramas, but at least from the film, it's always struck me that McGann's incarnation of the Doctor is incredibly earnest. It makes me really, really wonder how they'd envision the 8th Doctor dealing with (presumably) being the incarnation that has to kill the Daleks and Time Lords.

    That earnestness is evident in this audition... but what's also evidence is the utter rubbish they (thankfully) didn't explore any more about him being half human :rolleyes:

    He needs to appear in the Anniversary. He needs to. Even more than David Tennant, I'd say. Having Ten in the Anniversary would be plain cool, and I'm hoping he'll be there, too, but there is a huge debt towards Eight that simply needs to be paid - even if it's just a one-off special for the 50th Anniversary. As much as the TV movie sucked, Paul McGann deserves to have his place in the TV show.

    Eight is, I think, the most vital Doctor to include in the Anniversary just plotwise, at least if they want to do anything at all with the Time War, the Time Lords, the Daleks... And yeah Paul McGann should be in there.

    But actor-wise, I still think Tennant is the one who most deserves to and needs to be in it. He re-defined the whole show for the modern era, really. And since he still keeps topping most polls of favorite Doctors, and he's such a huge damn DW nerd, I'd say the chances of him not being in it are literally zero. I'm just hoping for him to be in it in a substantial capacity.

    Oh yeah, so do I... But if I had to choose only one Doctor other than Eleven to appear in the Anniversary, I would choose McGann (even though I like Tennant more), simply because he never had the chance to be in the TV show like Tennant did. Of course, I'm hoping for both of them appearing. :)
