After Nine loving Months (and a little bit more) of waiting, we FINALLY have the return of Doctor Who. The show about a time-traveling alien has a new show-runner in the form of Chris Chibnall. You may know of his work on the drama Broadchurch, but you may also know him for writing the Torchwood episode Cyberwoman. Personally, I know Chibnall from his Doctor Who episodes 42, the Hungry Earth, Cold Blood, and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. As RTD had The Gay Agenda and Moffatt had The Scottish Agenda, we will soon learn what Agenda Chibnall will cram down our throats (I'm guessing the Pop Culture Agenda).

As for the Doctor, we've got a new one of those too: Jodie Whittaker will fill the shoes left behind by Peter Capaldi. We also have three new companions of whom only their names we know....and that's about it. Chibnall is playing this very close to the vest, with a total clampdown on information regarding things that happen this series. Like, we barely have an idea of how Whittaker will play the Doctor. Alan Cumming shows up, though, we know that.

The series runs weekly from 7 October to 9 December, plus a Christmas special on....*puts on reading glasses* New Years Day:

1) The Woman Who Fell to Earth
2) The Ghost Monument
3) Rosa
4) Arachnids in the UK
5) The Tsuranga Conundrum
6) Demons of the Punjab
7) Kerblam!
8) The Witchfinders
9) It Takes You Away
10) The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos
Christmas) Resolution

The previous thread can be found here. Now for the formalities.

NO SPOILERS
By edict of the moderators, this is a SPOILER-FREE ZONE. Other than backstage stuff (hiring people), DO NOT POST SPOILERS. AT ALL. Even if the Washington Post reveals video of Donald Trump handing a big stack of government secrets to Vladimir Putin and one of the papers is labeled 'Martha Jones is a Rutan', DON'T POST IT HERE. If you must post about spoilers, go to the spoiler thread. Episode titles can be spoiler-y, so use discretion when discussing episodes yet to air. For example, 'Hide' doesn't spoil anything, but 'OH poo poo IT'S THE DALEKS' does.

HOWEVER, and this is important, as soon as HRH the Queen watches the show on BBC One, anything that happens on-air will no longer be considered a spoiler (next week's preview not withstanding). That means us Johnny Foreigners who don't use need to stay away from this thread for most of Sunday (and Monday, if you live in Australia or New Zealand). Since it's the British public who funds Doctor Who, they get the right to complain about the pro-Brexit scribe [insert your least favorite writer here] made the Doctor say before everyone else.

WHERE DO I START?
Good news! You can start right now and not get confused about previous Doctors' baggage! If you want to watch the original series, there are plenty of places to start. You COULD start with An Unearthly Child and watch everything in chronological order. You could also watch individual serials of all the Doctors and determine which you like the best. Keep in mind, don't shotgun a whole Hartnell or Troughton in one go, or else you'll get complacent. Those 60's episodes are meant to be seen one at a time, and if you only just rented the DVD, wait a few hours between episodes.

The most popular serials for the original series you can jump into are:

First Doctor: An Unearthly Child, The Aztecs
Second Doctor: The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Enemy of the World
Third Doctor: Spearhead from Space, Carnival of Monsters
Fourth Doctor: Pyramids of Mars, The Robots of Death
Fifth Doctor: Kinda, Frontios
Sixth Doctor: Vengeance on Varos, Revelation of the Daleks
Seventh Doctor: Dragonfire, Remembrance of the Daleks

WHERE CAN I WATCH DOCTOR WHO?
If you're an American, you're in luck! You can watch the original run of Doctor Who both on TV (Retro TV and some PBS stations) and online (via BritBox*)! Canadians get BritBox, too. If you're not North American scum, I'm sorry but you'll have to buy or rent the episodes on DVD or your local digital distributor.

For the current run:

ON TELEVISION
UK - BBC One (first run), Watch
USA - BBC America (first run), most PBS stations
Canada - Space
Australia - ABC1 (first run), ABC ME, Syfy

STREAMING
UK - Netflix
USA - Amazon Video
Canada - CraveTV
Australia - Netflix & Stan

*Day of the Daleks, Planet of the Daleks, the Five Doctors, Resurrection of the Daleks, Revelation of the Daleks, and Remembrance of the Daleks are not available, along with almost every serial missing at least one episode.

SHOULD I BUY THE DVDs AND BLU-RAYs?
Just for the bonus features alone.

THE NOT-AT-ALL BRIEF GUIDE TO BIG FINISH
There are literally thousands of Doctor Who and Doctor Who-related audio dramas released by Big Finish Productions. This is not a post telling you what audio dramas to listen to, because everyone has an opinion that is different from everyone else (some people like Minuet in Hell, believe it or not). This is a post telling you the basic info on the different series of titles there are. I'm only covering ongoing ranges, since devoting a section to the Stage Plays seems a bit silly. If you're wondering why I'm about to spend a good portion of the OP about audio dramas, you are clearly new to the Doctor Who thread.

The Monthly Range
Since 1999, Big Finish have released, on a consistent basis, mostly standalone stories featuring the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh (formerly including Eighth) Doctors. Up to 243rd(!) release this month.

The Fourth Doctor Adventures
Tom Baker gets his own line of releases.

The Seventh Doctor: The New Adventures
Hey, remember the Virgin New Adventures? These take place during those! No, I don't know how to find cheap copies of those books.

The Eighth Doctor Adventures / Dark Eyes / Doom Coalition / The Eighth Doctor - The Time War / Ravenous
Paul McGann's Doctor also gets his own line. Goons love 'em.

The Tenth Doctor Adventures
David Tennant reprises his role in mini-seasons every chance he can get, and the results are very RTD-like. In a good way!

The Companion Chronicles / The Early Adventures
This is important: SOME OF THESE ARE NOT AUDIO DRAMAS. These are "enhanced audiobooks" for the most part, which means that one person does all the parts while another gives narration, but also contains sound effects and music cues. The Companion Chronicles originally were one-handers, but now may contain small casts, which the Early Adventure always have.

The Ones with Fake Doctors
The First Doctor Adventures, the Third Doctor Adventures, and the Ninth/Tenth/Eleventh Doctor Chronicles feature people who are not the original actors playing the roles of the title Doctor. If you're OK with that, by all means give them a try.

Spinoffs
There are a ton of these, ranging from good (I, Davros) to who gives a poo poo (anything involving a companion from the audio series).

THE DISCORD
Here it is. The future is now!

FINALLY, let's take a look back....all the way to ten years ago! It turns out people still hadn't gotten over Voyage of the Damned.

Nilbop posted:

It contained a discourse on how it was okay to be really really fat and then wasted the fat couple because they were too fat.

Their cause of death was too much fat.

In conclusion, RTD is a man of contrasts.

As always, shameless self-advertising: An index of the write-ups I've done for all the Revival Episodes so far, as well as the (distressingly large number) of Big Finish Audios I've listened to so far.

Be warned that most of the television write-ups feature a number of spoilers for future episodes as well, as they were all written months or years after I saw them on original airing. Audio write-ups may also feature references to episodes of the show, both classic and revival.

Hey After the War, do I remember correctly that it was you that I sent a little Billy Hartnell comic along with your Secret Santa present (a Mark of the Rani novelisation, I think?) a few years back? This is maybe a long shot, but would you happen to still have (a scan or picture of) it lying around somewhere? I'm reorganising my files and it looks like I haven't kept a copy of it anywhere. I remember the image quality on it not being great (I think I made it with a cheap drawing tablet and not by hand), but it would be nice to have for archival purposes anyway. No worries though if you don't have it anymore!

Idris Elba just seems too... above something like Doctor Who. And I dont mean that as an insult toward him or the show, I just cant see him running down corridors and monologuing to Daleks. I know hes been in other genre stuff like Pacific Rim and Star Trek, but he still played fairly serious characters in both those films. Hed also be the most well-known actor to take the role, even more so than Eccleston, Capaldi, or Davison were when they were cast, and I prefer it when the show casts relative unknowns or actors whove mostly stuck to tv in the past.

Yeah, with someone on a level like Idris, you'd just be just be constantly waiting for them to announce they're leaving. OR you'd end up waiting for years between seasons like with Sherlock as Bamblesporn Cucumberness got progressively more famous.

Well, if the bull owned the china shop.


All I know is that, with the 13th Doctor being a woman, the 14th will be the massively multi-actor Doctor, where everybody watching will design their own actor to play the Doctor in scenes that are otherwise identical. And then the 15th Doctor will actually be the main character of what was supposed to be a spinoff during 13's run that hit development hell.

I believe (and I've used up all my pre-commute research time to find that Hartnell GIF, so I won't be able to source the quote) that he's said he prefers not to step into long-running roles and would rather play new characters that he's free to interpret on his own. If anyone can find it, I'll save it this time, I promise!
