  • 12th doctor on space at 6 pm

    Doctor Who is in 4 hours. Who's going to be watching and seeing how well this doctor will stack up from 10th and 11th?

    We're holding off to see it on the big screen on the 30th. Tickets for the 25th were sold out already.

      Why would they screen this in a week when it comes out today that makes no sense whatsoever.

        More than likely because the networks have the rights for first day. Also the first big screen showing is Monday so it's only a couple of days after. We're going the 30th because Monday was sold out.

          Looks like it's showing in theatres today in the UK and limited theatres in the US. Wide release in the US on the 25th, same day as Canada. It will include a 7 minute prequel plus a behind the scenes feature afterwords.

              There was a theatre release of the premiere of the original Battlestar Galactica way back when, before it showed on TV. I believe it was only in Canada.

              Edit: maybe it was after, according to Wikipedia. If I can find a movie ad, I'll post it.

              2nd edit: Yep, it was in the theatres before its TV premiere:

                The BG movie was different than the TV release. One big one was that Baltar was killed in the movie but spared by the Cylons on TV.

                  A bit more time worn, a bit more Scottish, but still the Doctor. I enjoyed the episode

                    I've been avoiding the online conversations on the new episode until we see it but I suspect they're going something like this:

                        Donna was wonderful and an order of magnitude better than Amy Pond. Moffat has yet to give us a companion who is more than a paper cut out yet.

                          Donna was a great companion because she was the only one (since the show's rebirth) that didn't have the hots for the doctor. After watching last week's episode I have the feeling Clara might actually become a good sidekick now.

                          I thought that first episode was a whole lot of whatever. I like the new doctor, though. It looks like they are trying to give Capaldi the illusion of having a sinister edge - we saw him purposely lock Clara in the room with the villains (which made him look awful), but he revealed that he was always there and never actually left her. Also, we don't know if he pushed the half-face man out of the balloon out of malice (which makes him look awful) or as fulfilling a request (like an act of compassionate assisted suicide).

                          I didn't like that first episode, but I am intrigued to see where the series goes next.

                            Saw it on the big screen today. We got an extra intro of Strax video blogging about the history of the Doctor reviewing each one since the beginning that was fun. I thought the episode itself was decent Doctor Who episode. Not a great one but not a horrible one either. As for Capaldi, I liked him a lot and think there's a lot of potential there for some new ground. Clara might improve from here but I think she's more of bridge at this point from the Doctor to get his bearings again before he moves on.

                              Do the ep1 was decent, ep2 was weak, ep3 was better, and ep4 was pure, great, Moffat creepiness.
