I cried like a baby when I found this news. He was a true gentelman, Ihad the privailge of meeting him once and he was such a pleasent man to talk to, total humbal and likable.

I hope he's remember, and let this be known, if ANYONE try's to replace him i'm never watching Who AGAIN!......'Goes to watch Invasion and cry some more'

I've been working on a project for a couple of weeks now, trying to find out just how much Doctor Who you can instant stream from Netflix or Amazon. My preliminary version is done, hopefully folks will find it useful:

Working on the new series as well.

Series 5 confirmed to premiere on April 23, here's an awesome piece of official art.

Also, I made up a list of where you can stream new Doctor Who.

That is one awsome poster.
I hope there will be an 'In memory' for Nicholas Courtney at some time in the next series.

I find it very admirable that she continued to work despite her illness. RIP.

This really blindsided me. I've been looking forward to the next Sarah Jane Adventures. No idea that she was ill -- and that seems to have been the way she wanted it.

My sister is such a big Sarah Jane Smith Adventures fan.... I don't want to tell her but at the same time I feel like its my duty as my parents won't have a clue.

However, I'm proud of her that she kept doing what she did best till the very end. Maybe its true when they say actors become like their characters.

I thought that the aliens in the season premiere were based on the Greys, quintessential American aliens that they are. But I just saw a BBC article that says they were partially based on Munch's The Scream, and that makes sense too.

Mixed feelings about this season opener -- I feel like what they did at the beginning is lazy writing to create cheap drama, but it's good to see the Doctor back in action again.

Doctor Who does a better than average job of making bipedal aliens scary. The "Silents" (and I guess that's who those things are) are even creepier than the Ood. Hands are the weakest part of the getup, I guess.

I'll have to watch it again to get a good impression. The new alians are pretty cool and creepy though.

My favourite theory for how the Doctor will escape his fate in episode 1.

Eva Facts:
-Gendo's final silenced line to Ritsuko was "I'm going to shoot you now."
-Nagisa Kaworu kills a kitten every time you masturbate.
-Kaji's first and last name was Kaji

RTD? Don't you mean Steven Moffat?

No, I meant to imply the escape plan idea came from Davies.
