Episode Discussion

So after months of waiting, The Next Doctor just burst onto our screens to bring us Cybermen, sonic screwdrivers and, er... hot air balloons. But what did you think of it? Were the new Cybermen amazing or should they have been deleted?

Owner's Opinion: To be honest, I thought it was one of those episodes that needs to be seen twice to be enjoyed. The first time through, I wasn't that impressed but we shall see once I re-view it.

What do you think?

I think months of counting down has not been wasted!! It was the best Xmas episode I have ever seen!

i was really excited but it didn't seem that good it also seemed short to me but that was because i was watching the five doctors before and that is far longer.

Combom said...

best xmas show so far, really enjoyed it, shame RTD told more lies about it though!

charlotte said...

oh i almost forgot the next special is planet of the dead and me and my brother came up with the idea that it's got something to do with gallifrey!

Combom said...

thats the rumour on forums, but according to the doctor, gallifrey is no more!

Doctor Who Mad Online said...

I enjoyed it obviously becuase it's Doctor Who, but as Christmas specials go I wasn't that impressed. There wasn't really a story line, and last years, Voyage of the Damned was brilliant.

Voyage of the Damned was a tough act to follow. At least it was the Cybermen, but the new cyber leader was not needed. A standard leader would have been alright to lead them, unless the new leader was supposed to be the New Controller after Lumic fell from the zepelin.

And is it not ironic that all the humans we know to have been converted are all women... paralel Jackie Tyler, Sally Feelan - the bride in Age of Steel, and then Yvone Heartman in Domsday and now Miss Hartigan became the Cyberking.

I found The Next Doctor a little Dissapointing.But I still loved it tho.Voyage Of The Damned is still the BEST Christmas Special.But I said to my Dad,The Cybermen should be in Doctor Who more.

I thought this was the best Christmas special yet. It was surrounded in mystery so you were glued to your telly. Also there were some really funny moments where I was actually laughing out loud. I was not disapointed!

i agree, it was a great episode, it was in no way as good as voyage because it was in no way like voyage. it was a complete reversal, we saw the doctor become an assistant in essence. he aided 'the doctor' (unbeknown to him a human with the doctors memories implanted, well in patches) for once it wasnt set in the modern day, and we got a mystery which im sure we where all itching to find out what was really going on and trying to work out ourselves. so i say we should just enjoy what it was, and not compare it to a previous xmas special.
