#1 Transparent ploy by the BBC to get some good press. ;)

Actually, is that Fox pilot (not picked up in favor of Sliders for Chrissake) going to be canon?

#2 Don't know, I only saw it once when it first aired, wasn't impressed. I don't know if it showed in Britain. I'd guess they'd just pick up somewhere after the last official BBC episode.

#3 I got into Dr Who a bit when my girlfriend (now my wife) was a big fan. Dr Who was interesting (the idea of switching Doctors by morphing from one doctor to another was a pretty neat idea )but the effects were pretty low budget, especially compared to a Star Trek or other. Will be interesting to see how they update it

#4 Interesting, but watching a Dr. Who not being played by Tom Baker is like watching Bewitched when Darren is not being played by Dick York...

Tom always had a look in his eyes that seemed to say "I know this is all pretty cheesy, but it's the fun kind of cheesy!"

#5 Yeah, now they have that Fox movie as well as tons of novels and audio with Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor, so I wonder what they're going to do with him?

#6 Liked the episodes with Leila. My favirute buts were when they battled a supersided virus colony that looked like a large crayfish called the swam. There was also an episode that had the flavor of the Orient including a evil animated doll.
