OMG, it'll clash with countryfile. We can't have that..
Or what if they put Dr.Who on after Countryfile. That is too much excitement for one evening, surely..

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

My son was asking a few days ago when Strictly starts.. it must be very soon. We were also wondering if we will do the same as we do every year: watch about 4 weeks of it and then give up.

Same with Dr.Who - we get excited it's back on the box, watch a few episodes, yawn at the meandering story-line and stop watching.

I have been watching Dr Who episodes for over half a century, amazing how the model has changed.
Started out as children's education!

I like.

She is lighter and easier to watch as The Doctor.

Although, the beginning of the episode was ruined by Mr. Swisstree recognising parts of Sheffield with interruptions of.. is that.. we used to.. oh my..

Agree, the accents were great.

I thought it was ace. And I was doing the same thing as Mr Swisstree re Sheffield! I loved the fact she incorporated Sheffield steel.into her screwdriver.

Better. Yorkshire accents as opposed to Essex/North London.

I managed not to annoy my family concerning Sheffield. Although I spent quite a lot of time there in my childhood.

Re: Dr Who (Spoiler Alert)

Seems to be a big hit among the metropolitian elite/journalists.

Doesn't sound like it would be my cup of tea I'm afraid.

It's a children's programme which some adults enjoy watching. Pretty harmless stuff.

It isn't my cup of tea, either, but each to her own.

Even a snowflake like you might enjoy it!

Don't knock it til you've tried it

Aimed at big kids and sci fi geeks I suppose...

Top tip - don't watch it with your kids. We had a week of screaming nightmares after the Angel episode a couple of years ago.

Or maybe I'm raising a snowflake.

I watched last night's opener and found it quite good. I like Bradley Walsh - anyone who corpses on live telly is good in my book, though.

I enjoyed it, and I haven't enjoyed much of DW in years. It's good if she sticks with the varied team of 3 rather than the tired old one person sidekick who rabbits on endlessly.

A surprising weekend of telly, normally we don't watch it.. but my daughter has decided Strictly is now family viewing and we all have to pick winners.. And speaking of sci fi, I loved the Matrix dance - did anyone see it?

Matrix was excellent, as was the Dirty Dancing homage!

Not really a children's program, more a family oriented program.

For children's programming, you need CBBC and CBeebies - the latter's performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream was amazing.
