So many people voted for series 5... Not a chance in hell it's the best!

Thought Asylum of the Daleks was good, not fantastic but good.

I don't want to sound dim here, but am I the only one that's still confused as to why the Doctor told Amy too "make them[the Daleks?] rememmber her"?


This was posted from The Student Room's iPhone/iPad App
I thought it was maybe so that if she could get through to the Daleks in the asylum, they would realise she had been sent on a 'mission' with the Doctor and they may spare changing her. Now that I type that though, it seems silly.
Maybe it was so that if she could remind them of who she was, she wouldn't change so quickly. E.g. by sticking by who she is an attempting to make them remember, her personality etc would act as a way to lengthen the process of her becoming a human-dalek.

But if you don't count the brief appearances, that'd take The Lodger/Closing Time out of the equation for Karen - she hardly appeared in those.

Certainly in the run as the actual companion Karen has had longer, but I think if you add in the number of bloody returns Rose made, it does get rather close.
I'd take out Closing Time certainly as she didn't even have any lines, but Karen had enough to do in The Lodger.

maybe I'm just clutching at straws because I hate the number of returns Rose made - she was annoying enough towards the end of her run as companion!

Aye, that was ridiculously irritating given she was supposed to be in a parallel universe. T'is why I was glad of the whole "she'll burn up if she remembers me" bit for Donna - there's no way they can get round that surely? Just leave the previous companions in the past.

I wouldn't be too surprised if they managed to find a timey-wimey way to drag Donna back in It is Doctor Who after all. :rolleyes:
Isn't she going to be back for the 50th anniversary or has that not been confirmed?

Oh I hope not, they need to leave the companions in the past, move forward.
I don't know, there's all sorts of rumours flying around but I don't think they've actually confirmed anything yet.

Yes! He owns the fez and bow tie. (;
Bring back the fez! Bow ties are cool.
I love how they're the same person, but totally different. You know what I mean!
If he had tried to replicate David, it wouldn't have worked.
2014? Excellent! I know they all want to move on to other things e.g. David and his theatre acting, but Christopher left after 1 series didn't he?
Hehe He's soo cute with his bow tie and fez
Yup, I agree with you. They all have different approaches and it's brilliant to watch
Yes, Christopher did but I hope he makes an appearance for the 50th anniversary

Yeah, there have been rumours about every past doctor and every past companion at some point - nothing has been confirmed except that Matt Smith will still be in it, though. I hope there are some returns (Tennant would be EPIC), but then again, everyone has past characters that they dislike or wouldn't want to see come back, so if they do bring characters back there are going to be some people who are disappointed.

All the surviving doctor actors in one show would be amazing :awesome: Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith. The 8 Doctors.

Yes I see what your saying. So far they haven't brought any old companions in. New Doctor, new start, that's what I think they're aiming for. I doubt they are going to bring them back anyway, it all ended with Ten. Though I do want to see Captain Jack again
Oh right, I see. I would like to see every one back for night though, I think it could turn out to be amazing but that's just me.

I wouldn't bet on that, from what Eccleston has said it doesn't look like he'll be coming back at all.

aye - I think that was a good thing about the ending of The End of Time, it closed off all the loose ends with the old companions.

It'd be like Doctor Who heaven for all us Who fans. Now there's something I'd really like to see. With excellent writing, it could go down in Who history

He needs to bring the fez back. :3
Yes. It'd be good to see him back.
Not sure what to think of Saturday's 'next time' clip. It'll be tough to beat Episode 1!

What's everyone's favourite regeneration? Sylvester McCoy's regeneration into Paul McGann seemed quite unique! :eek:

Yeah I know it's incredibly unlikely - many of the older doctors look too aged to reprise their roles, and some have said that they don't want to return. I'm just having a fangasm moment over here, that's all :p:

I've read some recent articles that say Christopher might have had a change of heart because he no longer speaks negatively of his time at Doctor Who but rather warm and lovingly lol, I know it's not much to go on but those of us that really want to see him back are clinging on to the tiniest of hope

I think they could get round the aging thing - they had Tennant aged quite far at the end of series 3. Just Tennant or Baker back would be :love: though.

I'd hope so, Christopher really didn't get a decent run at being the Doctor but I did like him - perfect actor for the rebooting of the series.
