Dr. Doolittle! I wondered what Unknown was talking about with that "talking animal" remark. (And what's wrong with talking animal films anyways?! "Babe" is a classic!)

I have never seen the television show, but I did watch the movie when I was little. I wasn't very impressed, though I never did like any of those movies where the animals all talk.

I am fairly sure you are thinking of Doctor Doolittle.

Yes, I think he/she is (sorry unknown I don´t know your gender). I knew there wasn´t a Doctor Who film.

There have been Doctor Who films, only one officially (the only appearance of the Eighth Doctor).

Blink was an amazing episode.

Interested in the Doctor being male as everything writen now is how the next Doctor could be female, as said previously i dont know past the basics and bits of what ive read here, there and in certain places.

 One Time Lord was briefly mentioned as changing genders between regenerations, so potentially he could switch genders when he regenerates- hopefully that doesn't happen though.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

There will be a female Doctor. The UK media will ensure there is one and the ratings and hype would be massive - it shouldnt matter but its the way it works now. I have a feeling there was one in one of the Comic Relief sketches (not that that should be seen as part of the DW official legacy).

 

I havent seen much of it but there was a Doctor Who movie (unofficial) back in 1966 i think. A quick search on IMDB shows that Peter Cushing played the Doctor and Bernard Cribbens is also it (Bernard featured heavily when David Tennent was the Doctor and played the part of Wilfred Mott (Donna's Grandfather)).

I never knew there were films as well.

Is the official one any good? I don´t think I´ll bother watching the unofficial one/s.

I didnt find it that good. It started off ok with the regeneration of the 7th Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) into the 8th (Paul McGann) but after that it got pretty dull as it went on. A pretty dull storyline i cared so little about ive forget the plotline.

Fortunately the BBC is a publicly funded broadcaster so it doesn't have to care what the red tops think.

I think Joanna Lumley played the female version of the Doctor, and it was Steven Moffat's first bit of writing for Doctor Who (even though it was non-canon).

I did remember that a female Doctor was in a Comic Relief sketch but i forgot who and figured it didnt matter since, as you say, its non-canon.

I still think the push by the tabloids on the writers will end in them casting an actress in the lead, tho a bbc high up person has said they should be not be focusing on ratings over quality and variety so that hopefully wont be a force of pressure.

There being a female Doctor wouldnt bother me unless it was solely as a token gesture to keep the lobbyists and pc folk happy; would be interesting to see how the Who-ists would react tho (is there a collective title for die hard DW fans?).

Just watched The Angels Take Manhatten and it really was a fab episode. Not going to write any spoilers incase folks havent yet seen it but the most enjoyable episode in a while. Made me actually want to see the Christmas special.

I thought there was a DW thread but I can't find it so I'll post this here: http://uk.tv.yahoo.com/matt-sm.....57874.html for any whovians (think there's one or two here).

EDIT: That's strange - I swear the title to this thread was slightly different the other day ahdn_paul_01

I quite like Matt Smith as the Doctor but Christopher Eccleston is still my favourite (havent seen much at all of the show pre McCoy so include them). Is Matt Smith the 11th or 12 Doctor, im interested to know how the BBC will handle the whole no more than 13 Doctors can regenerate issue.

The new half of this series has been patchy however has picked up a bit after the first half with the Ponds which felt like everyone was treading water. The 50th anniversary episode should be fantastic. No doubt there will be a lot of events on to celebrate, and no doubt a lot will be ongoing at the same time with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. Sadly i think another 50th anniversary from the same time as Doctor Who's first episode will be overlooked totally and go by with little more than an "oh" from those in a position to do something.

Matt Smith was the 11th, I think (hence the name of his 1st programme - 'The Eleventh Hour&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10.

There might be a special doc on or something to commemorate the event but I do think that anything else that happens/happened near to that date will be overshadow by JFK's murder, though it is the day after so, maybe, we'll see.

Very excited for the 50th anniversary (Zygons, John Hurt, David Tennant) and the twelfth Doctor. Also, I met and got my picture with Tom Baker a few weeks ago at the MCM Expo! :)

For anyone who cares or is interested the next person to play the Doctor, taking over from Matt Smith, will be unveiled this Sunday (4th August) at 7pm on BBC1.

Why they don't just tell us in a press release and instead have to spin it out for 30 minutes is annoying. Does everything have to become some overhyped, sensationalised melodrama nowadays? Still, at least it will put an end to the ridiculous articles in the tabloids on either who has definitely got a possible chance of being in with a shout of maybe being considered for getting the role or why it must be a woman because that means its not a man and therefore sexist.

I'm not a fan of Doctor Who nowadays, but when I was a kid I loved seeing the regenerations. I never knew in advance who it was going to be (not that I'd have known the actors' names anyway when I was 8, 9, 10). Putting it out in a press release would be BORING!

As for tabloids, don't read 'em.

Peter Capaldi off The Thick Of It is supposedly favourite for, but I don't think it'll be him- the other ones of the new era haven't been that famous beforehand. I'm not mad on Matt Smith- David Tennant will always be my Doctor.

Oh, I stand corrected. Capaldi will be epic though.

Delighted with the announcement as Peter Capaldi is an amazing actor with an incredible range so will be fascinating to see where he takes the twelfth Doctor. Will also be interesting to see how long he takes the reigns for as the role is quite time-consuming.

My favourite Doctor remains Christopher Eccleston and he only stayed for 1 series before leaving due to not wanting to be typecast.

You can watch the incredibly drawn out moment when he was revealed on the BBC here.

And if youre over 18 and never seen it check out The Thick of It, one of the best tv programmes in decades.

Peter Capaldi, it turns out, has a Beatles connection:

 

New Doctor Who starred in two Beatles-related productions

Capaldi played Beatle George Harrison in the 1985 TV film “John and Yoko: A Love Story,” which starred Mark McGann and Kim Miyori in the title roles.

“They cast all the Beatles as completely the wrong height although we didn't find this out until the first day of filming!,” he told the Liverpool Echo about the movie. “We came running out to play at a supposed Shea Stadium with Ringo being a huge, tall guy and Mark McGann playing John. I loved it having been a Beatles fan as a child.”

He also had a role in “John, Paul, George, Ringo … and Bert,” the Willy Russell play inspired by the story of the Beatles that was staged in both England and the U.S.

"Doing the Beatles play was actually one of my first proper jobs as an actor and I got embraced by Willy and his lot through that role and ended up in 'Blood Brothers,' so I've always felt an affinity with Liverpool since then,” he said.

Sorry, when I wrote this I didn't realise it wasn't a regeneration taking place, just an announcement of a new actor. I shouldn't have voiced an opinion on something I know nothing about!

Glad it's Capaldi though. I loved him in The Thick Of It and In The Loop, and since Doctor Who's made in the city where I live there's an outside chance I'll see him around.

I saw the Doctor Who movie when I was little at my great-grandparent's house and I liked it, but I'm not really into movies where all the animals talk anymore.
