Ok all us old timers...who watched the original series? I have been doing a little looking around and was quite surprised to see I only saw up to Doctor #5 (living in the states WTTW Chicago dropped the show...it is the local public station) and that there were 8 in the original and now SciFi is running it so I guess we are at 10 now? Those of you in the UK should know better than I.<br />
<br />
Just got done watching it & I love the way they brought back the couple touches of old...K-9 and Sara Jane (funny, had a crush on her back then and now that we are all 20-25 years older I still think she is <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> ). I will also admit one little thing...I know we had a "my favorite hottie" thread a while back but I was remiss...Billy Piper absolutely most definitely should have been on my list. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I'd post a link to one of her image pages but while all "clean" some are a bit racy...and being a mod the last thing I am going to do is get hauled on the carpet for posting questionable material.<br />
<br />
Let me see if I can find a nice pic to share...<br />

Doctor Who was awesome. I remember watching re-runs of the original show on the SciFi channel back when it was cool. The new ones are not that good in my opinion.

With it being new it is going to take some time to get the character development in place...I mean, they're in the "second season" and they have already regenerated the Doctor...that kind of surprised me that they would jump right to that so soon. But doing all the tie-in's back to the original at least for me has made it much better.<br />
<br />
The other thing about it is that I think they are doing a decent job sticking to the flavor of the original, by that I mean they are keeping that kampy (sp??), B-rate film feel.

Yes, I remember. I grew up in Hong Kong (when it was a British Cown Colony) 90% of my friends were English - we watched it.

I watched it on tapes that one of my best friend's dad had. We loved the show when we were little tikes.
