Did all the Whovians get to watch the premiere of series 6? I can say I was shocked by it and look forward to seeing how they get out of this mess.April 24, 2011 at 7:23 am #158634Kol DrakeModerator
I got to see most of the latest incarnations of the Doctor when it was shown by SciFi Channel (when they changed to SyFy they stopped paying to the franchise… and the new stuff only shows on the BBC America channel… which I do not get here.)
I got to see some re-runs of season 5 when I was helping out of town but… not this one. *pouts*

Last season I downloaded the torrents from a good site which worked out well. At least this season there’s no delay between the episode in the UK and US. I wonder if they’ll put the episodes online at some point. Season 5 isn’t on netflix yet and I didn’t find it online besides torrents. If it was that would make it a lot easier.June 15, 2011 at 3:40 am #160623JaxKeymaster
And just like that, we’re on summer hiatus! I feel like Doctor Who is a giant puzzle. It amazes me that these stories come from one (or a small handful) of people’s minds. I can’t think of a single show that has me rewatching episodes as much as Doctor Who. The sad part is I still miss clues. lol
So, who watched the new series of Doctor Who? What do you think? I think that River Song needs her own show. While there are always characters introduced throughout the show that are interesting, she’s beyond fascinating to me. Plus, she’s a badass which is a big plus. So I’m just putting that out to the Force – please bring us a River Song spinoff. Thank you.June 15, 2011 at 3:30 pm #160630StryseParticipant
A river song spin-off would be sweet. The Force compels it! I’d like to see a more kid-oriented spin-off to replace the Sarah Jane adventures as well. I really liked them, and it would be great for the younglings in my life to have something like that to share with them. (Rikku is on a TNG craze lately, so at least I have that.)
Unfortunately I’m now a few episodes behind again… the power supply on my PC died and I’ve been obtaining them via the internet. Apparently BBC America edits the shows and cuts things out that folks across the pond get to watch, so I have been trying to avoid the American edit that gets aired. (Which is also a good excuse to go back and watch some of the earlier episodes SyFy aired as apparently they cut stuff too.)
Its sort of the way things go though when airing British shows here. They don’t have the same ‘must fit in this time slot’ mentality our broadcasters do. If a show runs a few minutes long, they just air it instead of trimming things down to fit.June 15, 2011 at 4:27 pm #160632JaxKeymaster
I don’t think they’re editing this season besides obvious pauses for commercials. The only difference is the intro which has an Amy Pond voiceover in our version. I also download the episodes from eztv.it which has all but the torrent for the opening episode of series 6 (which is quite odd). If you aren’t familiar with this site then I recommend it. I also tivo them so we have them at easy access for reviewing. If you have trouble getting them, let me know. I can either give you the torrent and make sure I have bittorrent running to seed or send you a dvd or two with the files on.
I’ve added Sarah Jane Adventures to the netflix queue but haven’t had time to watch it yet. I only made it 1 episode into Torchwood as well. I have many gigs worth of old school Doctor Who that’s also on my todo list. I think it’ll be a fun summer.June 15, 2011 at 5:30 pm #160633StryseParticipant
I have the complete Doctor Who (with the exception of the past few episodes) as well. Torchwood was fun. Can’t wait for it to return.June 15, 2011 at 5:43 pm #160636JaxKeymaster
Well the newest ones, including Doctor Who Confidential, are at that site. They’re all ripped from BBC or BBC Wales. You should catch up quickly so it isn’t spoiled too much for you.
