Hi all. New around here.



I was just thinking about the new series. As far as I know, there has been no annoucement as yet regarding it's showing on Australian TV. Perhaps it would be a good idea to send off some encouragement to one of the networks to pick it up? Perhaps we could avoid ending up draging behind the UK.



If we were to do this, might I suggest we DON"t ask nine to pick it up? Their handling of any science-fiction content in the past has been very poor (bad timeslots, cumped by any minor sporting event, suddenly stopping in the middle of a season, etc). It would be great if the ABC could pick it up, but I doubt they'll be able to afford it.



Thoughts anyone?



-Linus

I thought The ABC had the first refusal of BBC shows. if so that is a good thing.

Just saw the first episode, and I liked it. I thought Christopher Eccelstone take on the Doctor was good, I enjoyed his performance.

I am still going to wait for more from Billie Piper as Rose, before I will comment on her performance, but it seems to be OK.

I look forward to the next epiosde.

Sorry to contradict most peoples' opinions but I think that Eccleston's portrayal has completely deviated from the aestheic and persona of Doctor Who.

Gone is the Edwardian gentleman and flamboyant hair/clothes.

Gone is the eccentric time lord with an empathy for the under dog and a panchant for the apt phrase.

We now have an attitude filled, curt and 'trendy' Doctor who looks like he could put the boot in at any given soccer match in the UK.

However, before I'm hunted down for blasphemy by the SFSA, I must say that the special effects were first class (gone are the paper mache and cellophane props!) and the action was fast and intense. I think with an egocentric, attitude filled Doctor in fast paced shows, a new audience will be caught in the BBCs net - an audience that has grown up with attitude filled 'reality' TV and lots of whizz bang special effects.

I'm just a purist who enjoyed the romanticism of the enlightenment symbolism of The Doctor - something I think would be alien to the psyche of 'generation y'.

I really enjoyed the episode where rose went back to meet her father.  I could pick where she could put everything back to rights.  It was messing around with time in a totally non-confusing way.  Of course that may have had something to do with the scotch I was drinking

I enoyed it, I think Chris is cool (this is coming from a generation Xer) and I think they have really updated him well.  A victorian gentleman would not have survived in a show today.

"A victorian gentleman would not have survived in a show today."



Forgive my obtuseness, but why not, Tareth?
