Series 1 started on March 26th 2005
Series 2 started on April 15th 2006, both of which were Easter weekend.

With Torchwood, the only thing that really got me, without trying to sound homophobic, was all the gay kissing business. I coped with it to an extent - the lesbian stuff was ok Wink but some of it was too forced.

is it me or did I see a Dalek in the preview for the next series. I think if they do use a Dalek in this series it may be slighlty over the top. I love a good episode with Who's arch enemy but I think it would be good not to use them in this series and to give them a break.

Well there's a two part story called 'Daleks in Manhatten', which rather suggests that they will appear. And going by the trend of the past two series the season finale will undoubtedly feature the Daleks as well.

The series has been mostly good, but i do wish they would do a few things to stop me getting bored:

1) Stop with the Daleks already. I've seen them in the trailer for Series 3, are they going to be featured a lot? Surely not even the classic series in its bad times did Dalek stories on 3 consecutive seasons in a row, especially not twice a series! I know they're popular, but come on.

The deal they got to use the Daleks with the Nation Estate (at the last minute - Dalek had already been rewritten to feature a completely different [new] monster) was for three years. Ergo, they'll probably get a rest after this.

4) Enough with the spinoffs! Sarah Jane Adventures, Torchwood, Adventures of K9! Where next? Thank god they axed that Rose spinoff before it got too far.
The K9 series has nothing to do with the BBC. At all.

[They don't actually own K9 - Bob Baker, the guy who wrote his debut, does; and he did a deal with Disney to make a K9 series independently of the Beeb. Ergo why the K9 Mk IV from the end of School Reunion was "parked" in the Sarah Jane pilot in such a way so as to keep him out of the series, but means they can write him back in any minute as soon as they're allowed to.]

I am so ready for the new series of Doctor Who!

BBC Better make a special ident for Doctor Who, just like Life on Mars, but with Tardis flying through creating the circle....

Source? I keep seeing this being banded about on various forums, but there has never been anything official or close to it.

I'll be happy so long as they tone down some of the melodrama. There were times, last series in particular, when I was like, "Alright! I get it! Rose and the Doctor have feelings for each other! Stop hitting me over the head with it!" Were the writers terrified that anything less than in-yer-face emotion would pass unnoticed? I felt as if we were being forced to 'feel the pain', instead of letting us empathise naturally with the characters.

I believe Steven Moffat will be making a return as a writer - excellent news as in my opinion he has written the best 2 stories of the entire series so far - "The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances" and "The Girl in the Fireplace".

With a bit of luck they'll give him a couple to write this year.

Great news those three episodes along with the "black hole" episode of Series 2 were great

Yeah I'm a fan of Torchwood, although some features seemed a little forced... sex gas anyone? Laughing


I thought Torchwood was a gamble and despite some rather ropey episodes - what was the mad village in mid-Wales all about!!! - Russell did managed to pull it off... oh behave! I am glad it's moving over to BBC2 now.

I am really looking forward to series 3, it's great to have the good Doctor back on our screens again. Especially in his current form... cor!
it's programme not program!

A few names have been bounced around of recent of who would replace Tennant in Series 4.

The one for me & I hope does replace him is John Simm from Life On Mars. He has been great in that series (as have the rest of the cast) and would be great in the Doctor's shoes.

Anyone else agree?
