    You.... just found out?! :eek: It's been through it's first season.

    Well put it this way, it is pretty dire, but i'm going to keep watching. Take that as you will. (Btw, all the eps are uploaded to a little known video site beginning with Y).

    Well I only saw Dr Who for the first time three weeks ago, and I live in a little bubble at uni. Found it on the uni network sharing thing so am downloading it now. I wait with baited breath!

    Oooh, I quite like Torchwood It's kinda Dr Who for grown ups. Well, the one I just watched was, it was the sex-requring alien parasite one! Wonder if I can get Saturday's Dr Who yet...

    But Kitty_koo...I do agree with you, there is something about Captain Jack! :p:

    I think that the last two episodes are pretty weak, then again i did have tonsilitis when i watched them so i was heavily drugged up :p:

    My two favourites are Out of Time and They Keep Killing Suzie.

    I didn't really like that one so much. It was like RTD was saying "woo, we're post-watershed! Therefore we must have lots and lots of sex, because that's what all post-watershed programmes on the telly must do! Woo!"

    Though I did quite enjoy the rest of the series. Still think Doctor Who is better, though. I can't wait till Captain Jack's back in episode 11

    Sex, blood and death...What was your problem with it again...? Sounds fine to me.

    The BBC have denied this (unsurprisingly), however they have said that Russell T Davies may be considering leaving. This is from mediaguardian.co.uk

    Indeed. His only good story was Tooth and Claw from the second series.

    Idiotic man.

    My problem wasn't really that it was in the programme, more that they felt they had to show off about it... Meh. It's difficult to explain exactly what I mean, so just ignore it...


    And as for RTD leaving - please don't forget that he was one of the main people responsible for bringing back Doctor Who in the first place. But I agree, he's not exactly the best scriptwriter. Prefer Stephen Moffat.

    I think Human Nature was honestly one of the best episodes of the season, it was weird, creepy and I loved Harry Lloyd in it. The Jack Straws are cool too.

    Granted, the season has been fairly weak but I think this episode stood out well.
