Big Noses choices are good. My recommendations (one for each of the first seven Doctors) are:

- The Dalek Invasion of Earth
- The Invasion (with the reconstructed animated episodes)
- The Daemons
- Robots of Death
- Kinda
- Vengance on Varos
- The Happiness Patrol

Anything with the fourth Doctor in will be ace simply because Tom Baker is so fab.

My initial reaction was to recommend you watch them all starting with Unearthly Child (or 100,000 BC - I forget what we're meant to be calling it now) including listening to the audio cd releases of the missing episodes, one episode a week on Saturdays at half past five (except for seasons 19 to 21 which should be seven o clock on a Monday and Tuesday including arguments with your mum about whether you get to watch Doctor Who or Coronation Street as this was when everyone had only one telly and no video recorders (unless you were posh)), then I realised you're probably not as obsessed about Doctor Who as I am. This is what I plan to do when they're all out on DVD, which is 2011 - I can't wait.

We started to do that, beginning with Tom Baker's era because my other half can't be arsed with the earlier ones. We even got as far as blogging the first one - http://drwhomarathon.wordpress.com . This is a project we should return to. It is of great importance.

Thanks! We will. It's all a matter of - ahem - finding the time.

Thats just made me feel all christmas.

I saw a christmas parade last night in Athens, and that made me feel quite christmas, but i feel even more christmas now.

The christmas parade was good, they had a revolving jesus, but i missed that. I thought i saw a breakdancing elf, but he'd just fallen over on his float and was trying to get back up.
I remember when all this was fields

Are Whodephiles all chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool, or was it so shit they are embarrassed to post the usual "actually it was quite good" stuff.

It was appalling. John Simm should've walked out when he read the 21st "muhahahahaha". Note to RTD: goatee beards are evil. A man doing a pantomime evil laugh is just rubbish. Unless it is George Takei in Aladdin at Chatham Central Hall. Which I heartily recommend.

George was walking up and down the high street the other day basically talking very loudly about how he is George Takei and used to be in Star Trek and pimping the bugger into Aladdin. (Tickets from £7.50 (concession) to £18.50)

Part 2 is going to have to be awesome to make up for that massive loads of old cobblers.
My apple pies go off today.

Who cares...David Tennant is just so yummy Im making the most of him before he is replaced. However, didn't think it was that bad!

I'm just in shock that the Time Lords are back. Though I'm a bit perturbed that Romana doesn't seem to be the president anymore - I've checked the cast list for next week and Lalla Ward isn't listed...

What if she's REGENERATED into Timothy Dalton tho eh? Richard Dawkins will be in for a New Year's Surprise! (etc etc)

I thought it was a bit rum and mental when I watched it, BUT that was drunk, with food coming out of my eyeballs, at my parents' house on a tiny telly 20 feet away surrounded by people SNORING. Usually the Christmas Specials are a LOT better when I re-watch them. But yes, there was a lot of MWUH-HA-HA-HA and disjointed running around... but come on! That ending was FANTASTIC! And The Time Lords are back! EXCITEMENT!!!

But that would be even worse cos then there would be no chance of seeing Lalla again.

It was very exciting. I'm intrigued by why there were two Time Lords covering there faces. Maybe one of them was Romana - not that I'm obsessed or anything...

Oooh that would be interesting. We never saw the Eighth Doctor regenerate into the Ninth so maybe he isn't the real Doctor after all and Matt Smith will be the Ninth Doctor not the Eleventh!

Well, I like it. Even the 'final reward' cheese-fest, I thought was fair enough, as it's essentially RTD signing off. The trailer for 2010 looks very nice, too (except for 'Geronimo' although 'Allons-y' is also pretty rubbish), and the Doctor's new companion is so pretty it makes me angry and tired.
Toot toot.

Just glad it's over and we can get on with the new era, to be honest. Matt Smith was a bit too... Tennant-esque in his opening few minutes, which is fair enough I suppose. He has time to make the character his own.

The cynicism one could feel about them hiring a 27 year old to play to role disappears when you realise they've hired a FUCKING UGLY 27 year old to play the role.

I have high hopes.
