Hate to be the bearer of bad news, Coolhand, but I watched the Dr Who Confidential programme on BBC3 after the main event, and they explicitly said there that we would be returning to Martha's family at various points during the series...

Oh no....
WHY?? WHY?? The WORST thing about the "New Who" was Rose's usless family. I could have cheerfully strangled Mickey, Jackie et all with thier own birth cords...

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

I, liked this episode.

Looks like a good start to the season. I like the family connections of the assistants it shows they are a bit more than just just plot devices like assistants of the past to some degree!

Good plotting, good pacing, good effects strong story line Doctor who as it should be.

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

Oooh! There was a link in the Absorbaloff episode too... must've missed that.

Methinks we should set up a "Saxon Watch" in which people look out for any Saxon reference they can find, and try to guess what the series finale will be.

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

Indeed

I have I think got a good idea as to what will happen.

Its going to be one hell of season finale if I'm right, and by the digging I've been doing and some rumours that have floating about.

Does anyone else have the first "new" doctor who annual the one with Mr eccelston as the Doctor? If so go read it, nick of your wee cousin or brother/Sister if you have to.

There is a whopping great clue there, I will post a spoiler theory in a thread sometime tonight, if Lenny dosnt get there first!

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

I actually enjoyed it!!!!

I like the relationship between smith and Jones, she seems more intelligent and less gullible than Rose.

I agree that we need to see less of the family, they seem even more unpleasant and in need of psychotherapy then Jakie's lot.

The Judoon were fantastic, my only beef would be the generic space police voice used, but the costumes and the animatronics were just cooooool. I would like to have seen the Plasmavore do more. A blood-sucking mad alien who looks like a little old lady, genius! How did she get the straw in? Was it tungsten-tipped or something?

I like that the Doctor's outfit has changed this year, too.

All in all, I'm actually looking forward to the series, which is unusual for me. I'm in the 'bring back Sylvester McCoy camp'.

Any way, BRING IT ON! And lets have less snogging, mushy stuff and interpersonal relationships, and let's KICK SOME ALIEN BUM!

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

Thanks for the Saxon link. Excellent!

Did you all see the other link there to Lazlabs?
LAZLABS.CO.UK

Last year, none of the webpages worked until the time that the episode aired, but that webpage concerns an episode to be shown on 05.05.07

I'm not too sure about that. During the bulk of the episode is was the blue, but when he returned to take Martha on her "one trip, that's all. Just to say thank you!" he was back in his pinstripes.

LazLabs, eh?

It's amazing what they'll do to immerse people into the world more.

And I hope it stays...men in suits are hot anyway (well, you know, within reason ), but David Tennant in a suit is...well, there are no words to describe it.

Re: 29.01: Smith and Jones

Erm... yeah.

Anyway, I much prefer his pinstripes. Blue just doesn't... I don't know... blue just doesn't suit him as much.
