We don't use the term "Kindergarten", we call them "Nursery Schools".

Btw be cool if The Doctor Matt Smith could see the Atraxi one more time. So his season can come full circle.

I'm sure there was at least one more, hmmm, dear boy?[/quote]

Hmmmm? No, can't think what you mean, Chesterfield, now do stop dilly-dallying! If you had yours you could give her hers, now do get on with it, old chap. One more? What does he mean?

It's a bit late now. It was one of those lines that really wouldn't sit too well with anyone. Yet not a swear word was uttered.

I'm sure most people don't care what they say on this forum or what language they use in front of the little ones. Indeed there are some very rude words appearing recently. But....although I rarely use naughty words the words I do use, when strung together to make a sentence can be very rude indeed or they have a double meaning and really I don't want to be accused of leaving those kind of images in the minds of under 35s. :lol:

In the eyes of the public, he never emerged from Tennant's shadow.

As a bit of an aside, it is annoying when people refer to the character as Doctor Who, (yes I know he has often been credited as such, but...) his name is The Doctor.

you do have a point, but I would hope that the majority of the public are more up on Doctor Who than a sentient computer is.

So the Name of the Doctor is ... The Doctor!

I wonder if Steven Moffat realises that.

I have used both those. (Maybe the Brits don't wish to be too Germanic...)

And you also have a point. I think my point - if I have a point at all and wasn't, as I more than suspect, just being flippant, - is that the Production team in the 1960's thought of him, and referred to him (and still often do in interviews on the DVD's) as "Dr Who", it's how he was referred to in internal commmunications, it's unsurprising that some writers allowed this to slip onto screen, it's unsurprising that the production team failed to notice and correct the slip, it's how the character was credited, it's unsurprising the press picked up on it, the annuals did, the Cushing movies did.

As far as I can tell, changing the thinking that the character's name was "The Doctor" came about in the Barry Letts era
and even then the credits didn't change to match until later.

So, whereas I agree that the name is, and should be, "The Doctor", I can't get upset about "Dr Who" because behind the scenes documentation shows that to be the original intention.

Kind Regards

The Doctor was also known to sign himself "Doctor W" and called himself Doktor von Wer (Doctor Who) during the Highlanders.
