Doctor Who Nostalgia

Standard

  I’ve long been a  fan of the British television show, "Doctor Who."

   Through the years, I’ve collected and been given multiple episodes, both on VHS and DVD, covering the span of the iconic series first begun in 1963.  Of course, the third season of the newly relaunched series is on my Christmas list.

   Last night, a British charity called "Children In Need" did it’s anual fundraiser program.   As part of that, a seven-minute+ new episode of Doctor Who was broadcast.  The scene is inserted into the final moments of last season’s finale.  It’s great fun, especially for those of us long familar with the program, as it features the current Doctor ( #10 – David Tennant) suddenly encountering a previous Doctor (#5 – Peter Davison, 1980-1983).

    I thought I had read that there will be a break in production for about a year because Tennant has some other commitment. Is there a third season actually available on DVD? I am now current through season 2.

    The third season (the first was with Chris Eccleston, and the next two with Tennant) is available as of about a week ago. See the link above on “third season.” The fourth season is filming now for a Spring 2008 release. 2009 will feature a hiatus of sorts, with three TV specials instead of a series while Tennant does some theatre work. The plan is then for season five to return in 2010. That’s how it stands right now!

    The latest incarnation has been very fun to watch…more than gives Tom Baker a run for his money…and that’s coming from someone who owns one of those giant scarfs!

    Though far from being a “complete” collection, perhaps you are referring to this:

    Nope, that one is cool, but no the one i saw in the store was complete…it was in the Augusta Mall in Augusta, GA for any readers who may live near there and can refresh my memory as to the name of the store in that mall

    Hi Trina! Happy Thanksgiving!

    For me, I can’t endorse Torchwood in the same way…too much emphasis on sex and language simply for the sake of gratuitous sex and language in my opinion. I find that unfortunate.

    The Lord is always working to take His people forward into greater revelation of who He is, that we might share in the experience
