    Series 9 starts on September 19, and the prologue is already available on the BBC site. Any Doctor Who fans here? Or am I alone in this universe? :p

    Oh yes ... the answer to the question? Tom Baker, definitely.

    I would watch but I don't have service with any tv providers right now. I a season or 2 I'll catch it on Netflix if i have that back by then.

    My 10 year old son and I watch all the time. Not sure if we are caught up yet I will have to tell him. He is the one that got me hooked on it.

    Erik Redd Lizabeth, baby, I'm comin' to join ya.

    Every few years I try to get interested by watching a few episodes, but it just never quite clicks with me.

    I'd have to say the second one, just because he looked like Moe Howard.

    It'll be a while since I tend to catch them when they get on to disk. And I'm still having trouble getting past the Tom Baker years...

    I'm a fan, too.
    My favorite Doctor is 4 since I grew up with him. Next would be 10. I'm still not sure about Capaldi, but the writing could be more to blame for my meh feeling.
    I didn't like 11 much at first, either, but he grew on me.

    Capaldi is okay, but I'm getting tired of the rest of the crew ... at least it's time for Clara to go. Not too thrilled about the return of Missy either.

    My worst fear is that Danny is making an appearance again.

    Edit: happy for Samuel Anderson to return to the series, but not as Clara's demanding and whining boyfriend. He got the wrong script, in my opinion.

    Clara's character did go downhill end of last season and became rather annoying. Not a big fan of her boyfriend either.
    I guess I could see Clara staying around just for the eye candy.
    Missy was a fantastic example of overacting.

    Then again, sometimes I forget what the this IS supposed to be a children's show :)

    I agree on the overacting and that Clara's character was kind of lost. Wasn't she a Dalek? What happened to that storyline?

    I wouldn't mind spending a little time with Clara in the "Snog Box", but the whole premise of the show is based on the fact that Doctors and companions come and go. It's time to swap things up.

    Bit of a disappointing start of the season. Hopefully it picks up.
