    I loved Capaldi as he felt refreshing. It's just that his stories weren't exactly the greatest in the franchise's history.

    The found footage episode is probably the worst Doctor Who episode ever, but it does have the line, "Why do you always do that? Why do you always put space in front of things?"

    That reminds me I need to listen to that, I have it on my ipod, but keep getting sidetracked by other books on tape.

    That looks so... generic. Like, ya take out the sound effect and seeing the TARDIS for a split second, and you can barely tell what show this is.

    Doctor Who on North Carolina Public TV, 27 July 1991 announcement

    "We're canceling Doctor Who. But here's some shitty ass Star Cops for a few weeks before we replace all scifi programs with New Yankee Workshop."

    And that was it. I didn't see another single episode of Doctor Who until 2000 when I moved to Maryland. Maybe if UNC TV wasn't funded by tobacco farmers then we could have kept Doctor Who too. I waited decades and they turned The Doctor into a chick!

    Speaking of Star Cops
    Star Cops is back! - News - Big Finish

    Well back in the day in Tennessee, they used to run it after Sesame Street and 321 contact. I remember being freaked out when I was 5 or 6 after watching a giant yellow bird to see a weird show with a black hole and a guy's face appearing in it, then it started showing a guy mutating into a monster.(Had a flash back years later watching Planet of Death didn't even realize it was a Doctor who show that gave me nightmares as a kid) I quickly changed the channel after that whenever it came on. Seems like whenever I'd catch a scene someone was dying or mutating. Luckily a few weeks later we got cable and I just watched afternoon cartoons. I didn't get into Doctor who till the new series years later.

    "Doctor Who" is the name he gave himself after he graduated from Time Lord academy.
    But either he decided it sounded silly or his friends told him it did and he dropped the Who.
    The other names he's gone by are
    Theta Sigma (rumored to be a school nickname)
    Dr. John Smith (his favorite alias)
    Doctor's real name has been said to be difficult to pronounce said it possesses thirty eight syllables.

    Nah he's an alien and the Time Lords are known egotists. They seem to give their kids very long names. Look at Romana's full name. Romanadvoratrelundar, that is her first name. No wonder the doctor shortened it. The doctor probably has a similar much longer and even harder to pronounce name. I could see class role call on Gallifrey being a nightmare and taking 30 minutes to get through. Gallifrey's version of my kid is better than yours is probably my kid's name takes a full minute to pronounce correctly.

    Given that he says only children would understand it and only when the stars are right, it's clearly Santa Claus.

    Oh, I thought they were going to make a spin-off. I would love to see then also a Tenth Doctor Adventures.

    Nope it's all audio, though the Tenth has his own range now that happens once a year now too.
    The Audio was good. The Master was written in the classic non silly style too, and the actor playing him did a great job., it was a lot of fun.
    Big Finish seems to have all the good spin offs we wish the TV series would do.
