Doctor Who 2005

Just want to say I adore the new series. I've got a secret method of
getting copies of all the episodes. Whovians in the US who can't get them
can contact me privately and I'll reveal my deep dark secrets.

But you must have broadband to do it.

And, I am furious at Eccelson for quitting. What an ass. The audience
shares in the UK are making it clear the series is a hit.

I'm also furious there are no US stations showing it.

The Doctor seems to be burning off lives pretty quickly. Aren't Time Lords limited to twelve regenerations? So, we had seven through Sylvester McCoy, then Paul McGann played #8 in the Fox MFTV, now you've got Eccleson (#9) and whoever is taking over for him (#10)...
He's also the very last time lord. Until and unless he discovers another one (hopefully female?). He did discover a dalek altho they were supposed to be extinct. Sort of like that ivory billed woodpecker in Arkansas or wherever.

Never know...

As for the 12 limitations, well, I'm sure the writers can get around that minor detail.
They might have taken care of that in the last episode with Tom Baker. There was that character (The Watcher) who was allegedly a Time Lord at the end of his regenerations. He tailed around until the end of the episode, at which point he and Tom Baker merged and became Peter Davison. The precedent had been set by the Master a few episodes earlier. In other words, if push comes to shove, the Doctor can simply find someone to merge with and get a few more lives.

If he doesn't find another Time Lord, male or female, maybe he could find Peri. She was HOT.
Well, the Master managed 13 or maybe 14 if you count the film...

However what's worrying is that the BBC is only contractually limited to produce 4 series, or provide 10 doctors.

Oh, and Eccleston did not leave voluntarily, despite what the BBC said. They declined to renew his contract, and then said he decided to leave due to fears of 'typecasting'... he's considering legal action.

The problem is that the Director General doesn't like Dr Who and thinks the money would be better spent on sport, like snooker. This appears to be an underhanded attempt to sabotarge it in such a way to avoid the fans wrath.

So what are we going to do about it?
