This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I don't have high hopes, although the clips look really good.

the episode made no sense whatsoever
“Ghost Whistler” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). Parental death, alien battles and annihilated worlds.

I don't honestly know if I can judge. It's either utter genius or utter stupidity. The whole thing was completely gonzo even though not much actually happened. I don't really understand why they've turned the Master into Cole from the InFamous videogame.

The Master has always gone to great lengths to survive, often with new powers, so this isn't really anything unusual.

Sorry, but the S3 finale with the Master was one of the better season finales, certainly better than S4 (though not quite as good as S2).

This one? Well, its very very uneven. My commentaries about it are on today's (Dec 26ths) blog.

I don't get to see it til 9:00pm Ohio time - thats when BBC america is playing it.

It is REALLY nice finally being able to see Doctor Who almost within 24 hours of the time that the U.K. viewers saw it.

Started the thread because I thought some of you would get a kick out of seeing the preview bits.

Watching it right now , about 27 minutes into it. Commercial on BBC America at the moment.

 MASSIVE (minor) problem or quibble:
Referring to the American President as Obama breaks the fourth wall WAY too much.

Over the past 4 to 5 years they've been pretty good at having fictional U.K. Prime Ministers and American Presidents referred to or shown.  Even tho those fictional parallel leaders have been shown having somewhat similiar policies and attitudes to whoever was currently in office.

Just makes more sense to keep the fictional analog characters thing going.

That was utterly, utterly, dreadful. The worst dr who story i have ever seen, if not one of the worst peices of television ever. Do yourselves a favour and avoid it.

Wasnt that bad tbh, the regeneration was very dragged out though but i guess since its the last time we'll see those characters again they felt we should give them all a send off aswell, not sure about the way they wrapped up the whole master/timelords thing though but i guess the new guy in charge can always find a way to bring them back if he wants.

This is Russell T. Davies' big send-off for the show, and here are my thoughts on that from a year ago.  I'm sorry to learn that it was such a drag for you -- I hope we enjoy it more when we watch it later today.

Last night, at my children's request, we watched one of the Stephen Moffat episodes ("Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead"), which was very satisfying.  I think the show will be left in good hands.

I am not interested in watching a tv show just to give someone a big send off. That's just total self indulgence. I expected a story, that's not at all what I got.

Some of us aren't able to catch a wiewing of it til later tonight(Sat) - when BBC America shows it over here in the states.

Unfortunately, I work the late shift tonight - so I hope the do their usual replay at 12midnight or 1:00am.


...and Ghostie? If you really dislike Doctor Who that much - then don't watch it.
