as they don't have that awful operatic music in the background

Depends what you define as 'old' , I remember William Hartnell and his granddaughter Susan

Just got back from a day in London, went to Forbidden Planet and came back with DVDs of The Krotons, Tomb of the Cybermen, Three Doctors, Robots of Death, Kinda and Snakedance.

Now all I need is for the electricity to stay on so I can watch them....

THINK that's Capaldis voice on the new Anchor butter ad btw!

Love Matt Smith as he encapsulates the old doctors so well, the crochhiness of 1, the hand rubbing and fashion of 2, the dandiness of 3, the mad of 4, the youthfulness of 5, the loudness of 6, th dodderiness of 7, the nimbleness of 8, the grumpiness of 9, the co ordination and speed of 10, and his own stance too.

but seeing all the old ones, well so far ive loved them all. Colin Baker tomorrow.

I got into series 5 of dr who which led me to go back and watch all the rest of new who and then as much old who as I can. I adore matt smith and the ponds but also love Patrick troughton and tom baker, Sarah Jane and ace. Even if you prefer old who, new who is a door into that for a generation that didn't grow up with who (like me and matt smith and most of the new who companions)

There are times when I think the underplayed silence of old who is far better but other times when the dramatic music and slo mo of new who makes me cry (I sob at angels take Manhattan every time !)

I wasn't fussed on the daleks at first in new who, but find them the scariest enemies in old who, I think because you can't see that it's an actor in a suit like with most of the others. Like, I know it still is but you can't see it do can suspend disbelief easier.

New who has some fantastic monsters ( weeping angels, vashta nerada or however you spell it) and has also
Done some fan stories with old monsters like the daleks and ice warriors.

Ah Colin Baker, how I hated him. Just because he 'killed' my Doctor. Have since mellowed to him, but I still despise that coat...

KayHarker Sat 26-Oct-13 20:21:39

I do love Troughton, very much. Had a bit of a crush - and he is Cole Hawlings, so is proper magic, which might be obvious to anyone who recognizes my NN.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 20:23:23

I've really been enjoying Troughton's episodes lately. He was magnificent. Im going to miss Smith hugely because he's been so utterly perfect, however Capaldi gives me such a huge ladyboner when he speaks and by how he just simply exists on the same planet As me that I have no idea how the fuck I'm ever going to be able to concentrate on another episode ever again! sad grin

NormanBatesTheForeman Sat 26-Oct-13 20:29:02

Yes, yes to Roger Delgado as the Master, and Patrick Troughton as the Dr. smile

KayHarker Sat 26-Oct-13 20:31:16

Well I'm back to actually fancying the Doctor, too. I enjoyed the break from that with Smith, because it did feel pretty odd fancying the Doctor the way I did with Tennant. But I think that was because I was a child the first time round - had I been a grown up I definitey would have had a crush on Davison.

But yes, Capaldi is proper sexy, and I'll hear no word against that. Especially not from my teenager.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 20:35:29

He'd get it from me until one of us died. But I doubt that'll be in any of series 8!

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 20:39:31

Ive fancied Peter Davison (especially when he was in all creatures great and small), Paul McGann (but ONLY as the doctor, hes meh otherwise),
Eccloestone a BIT, and Matt Smith too. even Troughton had something about him.

As for Capaldi, there'll be a catfight cos my claws are out for him too grin. positively loin warming!

fanciable companions- Jamie McCrimmon, Rory Williams, and Turlough a bit.

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 20:44:18

I still can't believe that Peter actual Capaldi is going to be Doctor Who. It's like the most amazing thing to happen EVER!

KayHarker Sat 26-Oct-13 20:47:44

You should have seen me when it was announced. Everyone was in utter shock as I jumped around the room like the crazy person I am. It was most invigorating. I mean come on, after all that build up, thinking nah, they'd never go with Capaldi now they've switched to doing the younger thing, and then yes, Zoe Ball said 'Peter Fucking Capaldi' (WEll, ok, she didn't, that was how I heard it). Awesome. Still get the buzz from it.

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 20:48:49

Malcolm glad youre as saddolooking forward to it as megrin. the amount of times ive been called a saddo geek! I don't care, I really don't.

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 20:51:12

Other posters- we're also on Telly Addicts site so come on over!

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 21:07:00

How could anyone ever complain that this man is not just sex on a sonic stick.

KayHarker Sat 26-Oct-13 21:11:00

This is my favourite grin

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 21:12:20

Oh and this

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 21:13:34

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 21:15:24

He IS the perfect human being!

MalcolmTuckersMistress Sat 26-Oct-13 21:17:47

<<bites own tongue off>>

DrankSangriaInThePark Sat 26-Oct-13 21:21:12

I am marking my place if that's OK, as am in furrinland and need to go to bed.

(I was on the other thread talking about a plastic human eating monstery chair!) grin

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 21:28:29

OP, look what you started! grin. Always time for a good old WHO thread!

So basically we all love ALL the doctors and ALL things WHO.

BTW is it just me or were the old cybermen (like the ones today on Earthshock) sexy??????

KayHarker Sat 26-Oct-13 21:31:56

I was thinking that... tight boiler suits are obviously more interesting sexually than metal armour.

BurlyShassey Sat 26-Oct-13 21:36:05

they looked like the Stigs alien cousins grin. glad someone else found them sexy!
