new Doctor Who theme tune lyrics

'He's the doctor
(Who?)
He's the doctor
(Who?)
He's the doctor
(Who?)
Doctor Doctor
(Who?)
That's correct,
Doctor Who,
that's him
(What?)
no not Watt, Who!
(Eh?)
You'll get it
in a minute
(Aye?)
No, Who
Doctor Who!
(Oh! That's his name then?)
Yes, Doctor Who!
in a new adventure called...'

to be sung by David Walliams and Matt Lucas as accompanied by Elton John blowing a flugelhorn and Damon Albarn on an African

Have you ever seen the sketches that David Walliams and Mark Gatiss did for Doctor Who night? They were pretty good, although i did hear that Sylvester McCoy no longer speaks to Mark Gatiss as a result of one of them. I think it was even edited before being included as a dvd extra.

I got Revelation of the Daleks on dvd today. I fancied getting it for ages, but hadn't got around to it since i'm not overly keen on Colin Baker, but i haven't seen it for years and am excited about Davros.

There is a Davros box set coming out for christmas with all 5 Davros stories on DVD, audio stories on CD and some extra new documentaries, but i already have all the dvds so it would be a bit of a waste at £99.

I'll behave myself in this thread. I'll promise to not post an immediate, usually drunk, critical evaluation of the next series (this may be unavoidable for the Xmas special). I'll also promise to only mention Genesis of the Daleks on special occasions.

I think its fair to mention Genesis of the Daleks at every available opportunity.

Since Mike out of the Young Ones has just been cast as a Sontaran Captain its maybe safe to assume that the Sontarans are back in Series 4.

Of course it could be a joke, since the Sontarans tend to look quite big, and Mike out of the Young Ones is rather short.

I got excited today in the shops whilst getting lunchables.

I was queueing and spotted the new Doctor Who Adventures in the magazine section, and i could only see the very top of it, and there was what i thought was a Sontaran head on the cover. Which i thought was cool in a look whats coming up next year fashion, but on my way out of the door i realised it was actually one of the bloody slitheen.

Surely they can invoke some technical jiggery-pokery, a la Lord of the Rings and make him like quite big, or something. (Or just cast a bigger actor, since under a fucking latex mask who cares who it is!) In fact I am rather nicked off they continue to cram it with "celebrities" at any given opportunity. In my day, the Who MADE celebs. Dirty Den out of Eastenders and Martin "Men Behaving Badly" Clunes would never have landed the roles that made them megastars without their Who appearances. And Fraser Hines.

I don't know where to post this but I just heard that ITV is remaking The Prisoner. YUCK! And that Christopher Eccleston was offered the role of No. 6 but turned it down. I really hope they don't mess with it. Just re-air the original! They never do (over here anyway).

Bah. That will be so shit, nothing can touch The Prisoner, it was out of its time in the 60s, and will definitely not ever be bettered ever by anyone, under any circumstances, ever.

Yeah, and they rarely show it over here either. In fact, I think I can't recall it being on ever since I've had a bush. But then I spent most of my post-sprout, pre-kids era outdoors trying to find someone to have kids with, so I might have missed it.

It was kind of disappointing going to Portmerion and realizing it was in, like, color! Were later episodes of The Prisoner in color though? I can't remember. Everything's creepier in b&w.

They were all filmed in colour, but you may be proper old, not that I am calling you old or anything, and have seen them before colour tv and stuff. Yeah, I am digging my own grave here, but The Prisoner was all colour.

has anyone watched 'Dr Who and the Daemons'?
it was on BBC4 these past couple of days.
it was kinda weird for me, being used to D. Tennant and all.
hence, I've got a few questions:
- why does the doctor wear a cape?
- is his companion Jo, like, 16?

I thought some bits of it was much scarier than the latest series (the Sabbath and that evil priest- fucking hell)
the gargoyles were pretty funny.
oh and the music and people's accent were brilliant!

Its great.

Each Doctor has a different style of dress. Jon Pertwee was into looking like a dandy. He stole some bigwig consultant Doctor's clothes and cape from the hospital he ended up in when he regenerated into the third doctor.

Jo Grant was indeed quite young, not sure exactly what age she was though. She is famous for posing topless with a dalek for an adult art magazine.

From my meticulous wikipedia research, she'd have been about 22 when those episodes were made.

There are quite a few out on DVD, but not all of them.

They have actually started releasing versions of some of the DVDs without the extras for half the price.

play.com have all the Doctor Who DVDs, and they tend to be cheaper than anywhere else.

If you want advice on which ones to buy, shout. I suspect Big Nose will suggest Genesis of the Daleks, which is a fairly good place to start.

Spearhead from Space is the first Jon Pertwee one, and kind off set the tone for most of the 70's with it being based on Earth and involving UNIT, plus you can see him nicking his clothes.
