Ray attended the last curry night this forum had; he chatted to many of us, as the night wore on, and he told me that he isnt a big fan of the 2005 daleks, because he designed the proper original ones, and he feels that the 2005 type daleks weren't "clean" enough. The bodywork should be smooth and devoid of fixings, and completely uniform. Also, he felt, the size was optimal-showing something that was frightening, and all-powerful for its overall size. Also, he didnt want kids to think that there was enough room inside for a man, and to let them think.....maybe they are robots?

Having talked to him that night, as did many others, I feel sure that he will be disgusted with the new tellytubbie volvo- daleks. I feel the same way. They are an absolute shower of sh*te.ianj

I don't know why, but that is one of the funniest pictures I have seen a long time. :lol: :lol:
My next door neighbour mixed up her KY jelly with the superglue. I asked her how she managed that but her lips are sealed.

I'm not entirely sure what's going on between that Dalek and that Teletubby, but I think the going rate is $20.

When he says "we've" he of course means Ben Aaronovitch.

Actually i've just watched this again and it's a solid little episode.

just 7/10, the redesigned, Daleks, was for me Moffatt, clearly saying RTD, is gone this is my series now, I loved the colour schemes but am still undecided about the look - also I fewlt ian mcneice, was a poor Churchill, and no where near as good as what Albert Finney, was in thee Gathering Storm.

Yes, especially for the stairs. Not sure what Mr A did about the plungers - made them some sort of computer links?

Third episode, and I surprised myself by actually liking this one, it felt like Doctor Who, the war room setting was suitably claustrophobic, and there was actually a character I cared about in Bracewell.
McNeice was brilliant as he is in everything, now there would be a brave choice for Doctor 12, the overall atmosphere of the production was somehow "right"
now the negatives:
Smith - third episode and I still don't buy him as The Doctor
Gillan - after the wonderfully fully rounded Donna Noble she is a let down in character and acting
Spitfires in space - What???????
New Daleks - a pointless marketing opportunity.

So I am intrigued about Amy not remembering the Daleks and the new Bad Wolf crack thingy.

Better 6/10, loses 1 point each for Smith, Gillan, Space Spitfires and Marketing opportunity of the Daleks.

Chap, while I commend you for finally watching....

Might I recommend you ditch telling us in each and every episode review that you don't like Smith and Gillam?

I think we can all accept that as a given.

More importantly, tell us the episode where you DO end up liking them. Otherwise, it's a waste not only of our time to read this obvious fact regarding your opinion but also saves your time and agitas.

Oh Tom. You and your double entendres.

Will do.
SUrprisingly, when I saw the trailer for the Van Gogh one, The Doctor says "run, run, run" and I got a cold shiver, it felt like The Doctor.......

I'm not sure I'm such a big fan of new-new-Who as you were of old-new-Who. (Or to stretch the metaphor even further, I may be a coalition partner of the new government, but I'm still somewhat critical... :twisted: )

Re-watching this again, it's basically AWFUL.
The story is just total handwaving implausible rubbish. And the new coloured daleks looks sh1t.
Things just happen in totally contrived ways (e.g. defuse a bomb by flirting with someone.... not getting exterminated by the daleks because he has a jammy dodger, airplanes flying in space in 'gravity bubbles') - it's unsatisfying mess.

Such is the nature of TV production that incoming Showrunner, Steven Moffat, was planning 2010s Series Five as early as 2008.

He's already written the first multi-part story hasn't he?
The Doctor becomes stranded in a small coastal town...a space-boy has just been found dead on the beach at the foot of a cliff. Is this a dastardly Silurian plot? Are the Sontarans involved somehow?...or have the Cybermen and Daleks returned?....
All are suspects in this timey-wimey adventure as the Doctor takes a new companion in the form of Mrs. Masters who seems upset that the Doctor is taking the limelight.
