So... Is anyone else here a bit of a scifi nerd? ^^; I have seen all sorts of star wars, star trek, and other sci-fi show fans, but I haven't met any pe2kers yet who like Torchwood or the new Doctor Who.

Looks like you just met me ^^. I enjoy Doctor Who, but I haven't seen Torchwood.

Series 4 looks like the best. Also,[SPOILER ALERT!} Rose comes back.

=O spoiler: ROSE COMES BACK? =D That would be the best! ^_^ Wow, I hope that's true. <3 Hehe.

Anyway, I'm glad to see another dr who fan around. ^_^ So, classic question... Which doctor do you prefer, the 9th, or the 10th? ;P

Oh come on, I'm greatly offended you haven't even considered the old series :P Fourth Doctor, ftw. (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/01/Bakert.jpg)

Yeah, I prefer the original Doctor Who as opposed to the newer stuff. Its okay, but nothing has been as good as the old series. Doctor Who went into a decline once Peter Davison left, imo, and still really hasn't come back.

Torchwood is a whole 'nother can of worms.

Oh, and for the record, I hate Rose with a passion XD

The 4th doctor was my least favorite. =p Hehe, figures that we're opposites. I thought Mccoy did a decent doctor, but I really like Eccleston's approach. Maybe he's not always subtle/playing games off people, or totally funny, but it was sort of endearing that after losing his people he didn't feel like he could handle 'domestics' anymore. x3

Torchwood... The endless plothole that survives because John Barrowman is love. xD I'm still puzzling over Owen's sudden change from stealing and using the alien gas stuff to make people who rejected him change their mind, to defending some rape victim from years and years ago... But the series has its moments.

You hated Rose? Why? She was a bit of a chav, but I thought she was cool. Before the 10th doctor, anyway. They were kinda clingy together, IMHO. And Jackie? C'mon, the first one to slap a 900 year old timelord in his entire life? xD I liked Mickey, too, coward that he is.

Tom Baker as Doctor Who = FTMFW

Although the nineth was ok =/

I like Tennant, but I guess Baker was good.

Also, for FFK, Rose does come back. I collect the comics, and it says it at the fron. It doesn't say how, though.

Are you kidding, FireflyK? My dad is ADDICTED to Who, and so am I. Cain't wait to series 4.

Piper is a terrible actor, IMO, and RTD makes her too 'Special' like "OMFG she wuz leik da furst companionzor! she <3 da dr!!!!1111" Honestly, she was one companion in a long line of like... 70 if you count the books and comics. IMO, she's nothing more than a footnote in the Doctor's history, and I am absolutely sick of people making her out to being more than she actually is. I was actually happy when Rose 'died,' but even then, they took like ten minutes to make her let go of the wall.

In conclusion, I hate change.

Yayyy.

And Rust- At least she didn't just hang around needing to be rescued. =p Sure, she messed up, but some of the doctor's past companions were basically useless and cried in corners when they got in trouble. She had more spirit. xD For that matter, so does Jackie, and even if he's a total wimp, Mickey was an interesting character, too.

I never said she needed to hang around and be rescued, all companions do that. Its their job. I'm just saying Rose is made into something WAAAAY more special than she actually is.

She's special because she isn't like the other companions, who were rather stupid. =p

I don't know Torchwood yet, but I like Star Wars, Star Treks, Futurama, Babylon 5, StarGate SG-1, Transformers, Robotech, both Dr Who, Twilight Zone, Ray Bradbury Theater, used to watch Earth Two, Sliders, SeaQuest DSV, and My Secret Identity. I still get kinda creeped out by "BAD WOLF". Some dork has graffitoed it on this wall in an alley near my house in this spray that glows at night.

I hope RTD isn't going to be writing much in the next series. He should stick to Torchwood.

I wouldn't mind watching Torchwood... If the station that had picked it up hadn't screwed it up. Grrrr.

Well, i'm totally in love Torchwood and Doctor Who. They are both filmed in my country and sometimes in my school. Cardiff & Fitzalan High. I mentioned this before in the DCC thread...lol its a great Tv show for those who like aliens and that. and also for those who like gruesome stuff and drama.

I'm only allowed to watch the editied Torchwood. The adults' one I can't watch. You must be lucky living in Cardiff.
I like Doctor Who aswell, but sometimes it's not all that good, like the Voyage of the Damned christmas special (that was rubbish).

Currently, that's unconfirmed. Trust me, I'd know, as I am a member of OutpostGallifrey, so I keep a tab on the rumors.
