    PLEASE NOTE THAT ALTHOUGH THIS POST HAS BEEN EDITED MANY TIMES, NONE OF THEPOST CONTENT HAS BEEN CHANGED, ONLY THE TITLE OF THE THREAD BY KENNYLJS,_ISLANDER_,OR MATTPITT1991

    Hey guys! It's my 100th post on TV.com! Hooray!

    Anyway, I thought I could do something special for it. I saw this on another forum and thought what a good idea it was. I decided to do it on this Doctor Who forum, because ths is the one I use the most.

    Basically, everyone tries to keep this thread running by posting messages about anything to do with Doctor Who, or just random stuff! We'll see how long it can get!

    And remember, keep posting. This is going to be a good bit of fun, to see how long it will last!

    So, get ready, get set, GO!

    ALTHOUGH THE ORIGINAL IDEA OF THIS THREAD WAS TO KEEP IT RUNNING, IT CAN NOW BE USED TO DISCUSS ANY PART OF THE WHO-NIVERSE THAT MAY NOT DESERVE A THREAD OF ITS OWN

    I'm not sure of the point of all this, but here goes.

    My favourite stories per Doctor are:

    Hartnell: The Aztecs
    Troughton: The War Games (10 episodes! still, incredibly good!)
    Pertwee: Day of the Daleks
    T Baker: The Talons of Weng-Chiang
    Davison: the Caves of Androzani (of course!)
    C Baker: Revelation of the Daleks
    McCoy: Survival

    McGann: the Movie (don't act all surprised)

    Eccleston: The Empty Child (both parts, the Doctor Dances was good, too!)

    I expect that my favourite David Tennant episode will be the Cyberman two parter, because a) Cybermen!, and b) Graeme Harper! Considering his only two classic series stories are in my list above, you can see I have high expectations from him, as I believe do many others.

    OK, random babblings...

    I grew up in the Baker era, and although I was very young at the time, recall absolutely being blown away by the regeneration to Davisson when it happened... I didn't know anything about Doctor lore then, only about what happened in the episodes I had seen...so it was a a real shocker for me!

    Also, love the lists of favourite episodes of all time. It gives me an idea of what to look out for as I continue my jorney into the Universe of Doctor Who.

    Well, my first regeneration was Christopher Eccleston to David Tennant. So when I heard Chris was leaving and David would be the new Doctor, I was like, how are they going to sort this out, he (David) looks nothing like Chris.

    Then I read on the internet, that there's this thing called regeneration. Anyway, when my brother and cousins watched the last episode they were in shock, while I had a smirk on my face!

    Did the BBC not air any of the old Doctor Who episodes before hand to entice old and new viewers? There's a whole generation that didn't grow up with episodes being aired on a regular basis.

    I remember watching various repeated episodes in the mid 90s (I loved the Jon Pertwee era!) but I don't remember watching any with regenerations from actors to actors. The first regeneration I saw was in the 1996 movie with Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann.

    I vaguely remember the seventh Doctor (Slyvester McCoy) and his adventures with Ace as I was about five when the series originally ended.

    To end this... In Canada, it's 16 days until "The Christmas Invasion"!

    I am just curious, how many of the fans here saw Doctor Who for the first time in 2005?

    I think it's a good sign that there are so many new fans, and that Doctor Who is here to stay!

    I was born in 1989 and have watched dr who on VHS for as long as I can remember

    But 2005 (excluding 1996) was the first time I saw new Dr Who on tv.

    I am a new Doctor Who fan. Because although during my childhood years, I remember watching a show about a police box travelling through time, don't remember at all the other details.

    Well, as I said, 2005 is the first time I've watched Doctor Who but my mum said a few details about it, something about these creatures called Daleks... Obviously, I didn't have a clue about what she was talking about, but now I understand!

    Imagine todays 6 year olds having this very same arguement in 20 years time.

    Doctor Who will last frever, long after Lost is dead, Desperate Housewives is no longer desperate and stargate sg1 is entering season 30, dr who will still burn brightly.

    Because its the greatest television show ever.

    Yeah. What do people think is better, the New or the Classic Series? I could only vote New Series, 'cause that's the only one I've seen.

    I remember reading in the paper before that this man had a serious accident on the motorway on Saturday and before he rang for an ambulance he rang his wife to ask her to tape Doctor Who. It;s unbelievable how successful the series has become since it did become a bit of a laughing stock by the end of the original series.

    Don't make fun of Lost! The other two are fine but I think Lost is a great program, though it should have only been one series so as not to spoil it even more
