The next thing you know, we'll start seeing demands for a HANNAH MONTANA talkback.

that we need another Dr. Who spinoff after Torchwood. Although I enjoy the show it's gets a little thin after you get away from the central character of the Doctor.
Sept. 27, 2007, 9:13 a.m. CST
is that Torchwood is for the grown-up Who fans to get a fix of more serious stories, while SJA is for the kiddies to get something that won't terrify or bore them.<p>That said, I'm sure there're grown-up Who fans who're interested enough that they'll be grateful for Herc putting this up, SpyGuy.

Where Torchwood is meant to be the adult spin-off of Doctor Who, a show that kiddies aren't supposed to watch, but invariably do due to suitably relaxed parenting. TSJA is meant to be the kid's version that grown-ups aren't supposed to watch, but invariably do because we're all just big kids really. <br> <br>For what it was TSJA was a good prog. Well made, well paced, fun. And the Slitheen, rubbish monsters in Doctor Who, were far better placed here. That is to say, farting is funny when used in the correct timeslot.
Sept. 27, 2007, 9:44 a.m. CST
At least to me.
Sept. 27, 2007, 9:53 a.m. CST
another show aimed at kids is called doctor who. So is every film made by Pixar. So are the Spider-man movies...
Sept. 27, 2007, 9:53 a.m. CST
because we all know "K-9 and company" was season 1, right?

Thats about all I have to say about that.

TORCHWOOD is intended for adults and older kids, DOCTOR WHO is intended for the entire family (kids and adults), and THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES is intended for kids. It's not that hard, really.
Sept. 27, 2007, 11:13 a.m. CST
Hopefully now we've got a kids show they won't feel the need to go too kiddie in Doctor Who. Although I suppose season 3 was the least kiddie so far, even though it was full of shit episodes like '42' and 'The Lazarus Experiment'.
Sept. 27, 2007, 11:43 a.m. CST
meant to scare the shit out of kids a certain age. Kids are probably to decensitised these days. I remember cowarding under a hosptal bed during 'Pyramids of Mars' when I was 6.

My 6y.o. likes the Doctor...I'm sure he'd love this. But youtube ain't gonna fly. Can we expect it on BBC America soon?
Sept. 27, 2007, 2:15 p.m. CST
Actually the Beeb and Youtube have an agreement, so you can watch Who, Torchwood, TSJA and other Beeb shows on Youtube instead of paying through the nose for DVDs or waiting for them to pop up on Sci Fi or BBC America. So yes, it is legal. I wouldn't expect to ever see TSJA in the US, unless Canada picks it up and you can watch it over the border.
Sept. 27, 2007, 2:48 p.m. CST
TORCHWOOD is already airing on BBC America, so Sci Fi *probably* wouldn't want sloppy seconds on a British import...or thirds if you count the original BBC transmission. <p>"Adult content" may not be an issue, however. The network did air LEXX and TRIPPING THE RIFT once upon a time, and Skiffy could simply chop out the more sensitive bits and insert more in-house commercials for their craptacular FLASH GORDON series.</p>

We all know RTD is a pigs bollock. And the hideous Catherine Tate character needs to be kiiled horribly soon and replaced by Sally Sparrow from the "Blink" episode. RTD has sexualised The Doctor to the detriment of his true asexual alien character.
Sept. 27, 2007, 4:47 p.m. CST
Not looking forward to missing season 4 of Who next year. Is Catherine Tate really going to be in every episode!!! It's not too late, change her role. Perhaps she could just play a mysterious stranger who appears in the background of every episode (but doesn't speak) then in the very last episode she reveals herself to be slightly important, but explains everything within 2 minutes. By doing this the Doctor would have no choice but to select one of the shows most promising companions-to-be, the one and only, Sally Sparrow. Oh, and they'd be room for Martha when she returns. Hate the Tate.
Sept. 27, 2007, 5:27 p.m. CST
I think RTD is adopting a scorched earth policy. He's loving the cred he's getting for resurrecting the show, and doesn't want his successor to show that anyone else can do the job. <p> I mean, the characters and aliens RTD creates (and the script he writes) are sub-par, compared to the ones done by Moffat, for example. I'm sure that grates against RTD's enormous ego.
Sept. 27, 2007, 6:49 p.m. CST
are aimed at the under 10 set. Torchwood is aimed at adults (more or less)
Sept. 27, 2007, 8:30 p.m. CST
Just watched her original Doctor Who swan song "The Hand of Fear" on dvd last night. The dvd has a great doc on the Sarah Jane Smith years of Who, plus some good archival footage of Elisabeth Sladen and Tom Baker on some random British kid call in show.

Sept. 27, 2007, 9:14 p.m. CST
in actual HD, so that would be two outlets that air it before sci-fi. Also, it isn't terribly good, not that that would stop sci-fi. Does Sarah Jane air in HD in England?

Doctor Who is still on because it's the best and longest running science-fiction programme in the history of the world, one of the 3 or 4 highest rated shows currently airing here in the UK and winner of BAFTAs and Hugos galore.
Sept. 28, 2007, 8:10 a.m. CST
Who is science fiction gold, my friend.
Sept. 28, 2007, 8:19 a.m. CST
Thankfully, Martha's coming back halfway through Series Four, so here's hoping the season finale ends with Donna being exterminated by Davros or the Rani or whoever the new Big Bad turns out to be. We really need someone else to bust on because all those Adric jokes became stale years ago.

It makes it harder to comment about how much they suck when they die because people feel bad about it. Just get rid of her.
