Re: Doctor Who

That was the best episode of the series IMO.

From that teaser I am sure the Daleks will the the big bad of the special.

It didn't bother me seeing the inside of a Dalek. I'd already seen them in various Classic Who stories before New Who , and I still rate Dalek, the story that re-introduced the Daleks as the best Dalek story in New Who (as well as being one of the best stories of all in New Who). While it takes massive leaps of faith to believe in the story (such as believing anything can download the entire internet in a few seconds through a VGA cable), it's still quite tense, and even a little scary.

I think overusing them has made them less scary. The same with the Weeping Angels. She's not at all scary, but I think they also ruined River Song by overusing the character. She worked best when she had an air of mystery about her.

Re: Doctor Who

It was just as used in previous years.

Even in the classic era. So much so that they eventually destroyed it.

Re: Doctor Who

No, they used it, they just did not use it a lot.

Its been way too heavily used in this season.

Door locked, use the sonic.
Need to access the computer, use the sonic.
Not sure what that object is, use the sonic.
Run out of ideas, use the sonic.

Take your Jodi specs off for a few minutes

Re: Doctor Who

I have no Jodie specs.

The sonic was well over used by many Doctors and was used for so many different purposes.

Re: Doctor Who

I remember John Culshaw phoning up B&Q as Tom Baker asking them if they had any sonic screwdrivers in stock. He also phoned up Tom Baker as Tom Baker and he played along with it brilliantly.

I've managed to miss every episode of the new series and still think it's in desperate need of a hiatus, nothing I've seen here or heard elsewhere has convinced me otherwise
