    I completely missed the last few seasons (after Amy Pond stopped being in it). Is it any good yet? It's always, always teetering on being good but just always loses it with lazy writing and pandering to the idea that The Doctor is great and powerful, yet can't really back it up narrative wise. It's almost a case of 'show, don't tell'.

    Is it worth catching up with?

    Get bent.

    Hopefully this report is the explanation.

    If not it could prove that America is pulling the strings.

    @RichieTenenbaum I have heard he had signed for next seasons supernatual so think its a red herring ( thank god, all he does in supernatual is stand there looking gormless)

    Oh, really? I haven't watched it in about two years, not really sure at what point I stopped then! I think it was the whole River Song baby thing.

    Could be wrong though.

    Get bent.

    Isn't he known for wind-ups? If it absolutely has to be a yank, then they could do a lot worse.

    @X201: That report makes sense. Does seem hard to believe that Whoever it is would risk breaching their contract with a tweet like that.

    A resounding NO from me, but we're all different so the only way to find out is to try it for yourself. :)

    @GuiltySpark ahhhh sorry, mixed wires. If you like Matt smith as the doctor absolutely, as he pretty much carries the next few series. if you are not really bothered by him, II have been a bit let down by the writing.

    Edit: added punctuation to satisfy mals need for semi understandable posts

    WHAT?

    Seriosly, what? Stick some punctuation in there, please.

    Sounds like GS stopped before the 2011 christmas special, so technically there's only the last series to go (or, as most people think about it, the 2012 miniseries and the other half in 2013, plus the 2012 christmas special.

    Helpfully, BBC 3 seem to be reshowing the first half of the last series at the moment. Sadly you've just missed the really rather good (IMO) Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, and next Friday it's the utterly dire western one. But after that it may be worth giving it a punt - most of the episodes this series seem to be a bit marmite, but they're nowhere near as shit as the western one.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Seeing as people are talking about Doctor Who again, now's as good a time as any to once again highlight my reviews of Who, which are now up to - coincidentally enough - the story with Peter Capaldi in it, The Fires of Pompeii

    I know. It's some shameless shit. It's taking a drama and making a reality show thing out of it

    This all seems very OTT. Why not just leave it a secret until the regereneration happens? All this publicity just spoils the surprise when it happens, because you just spend the whole episode waiting for it.
