Yep, Kasterberous just confirmed it...

I suspect that if the BBC are expecting to announce new partners early next year, then they probably already know who that will be...

The most likely candidates are probably Boom! or Titan, according to BleedingCool...

I've been meaning the read the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan for a few years, but I have finally got round to ordering the first one off Amazon and reading it, and by the time I was halfway through had already ordered the second.

I am now on the 4th book and have the first 7 (out of 14 books in the series) on my bookshelf, so my 'currently reading' is currently:

The Shadow Rising, by Robert Jordan

I expect I'll finish book 14 in about 6 months...

I'm having a lot of problems with the site. Is it broken? Has the URL expired?

For those interested, I'm bypassing this problem with a URL redirection tool for the Chrome browser.
Grab it here.

Once you have it, add a redirect, by clicking the 'S' symbol at the end of your URL bar, and adding:          =>

Like this:

NOTE: Don't add the http:// to the front...

Now, the forums should mostly work again for you, but avatars and stuff may still not work...  You should be able to log in and make posts though.

I've seen this done elsewhere, and thought it would be fun to start one here...

The idea is that you must count, so the first person posts the number 1, the second person replies with the number 2, etc...

The twist is that the number must be in the form of an image (in img tags), preferably a photograph, but the more interesting, the better.  The strict rule is that the correct number must be in the image, and it should be the only number (so, if you need the number 12, posting an image of 3124 isn't good enough).

I'll start us off:
As I love F1, I'm going to go with Sebastian Vettel's car:

Tough choice...
I think City of Death just gets my vote...

UNIT have been seen on set for episode 4. It's also rumoured to feature dinosaurs.
Indeed!  Here's a photo from filming:

Let's use Torchwood for an example here. I think it's wonderful whenever anything Doctor-related is thrown around in the show. And I feel great whenever there's a crossover and the spin-off is suddenly part of the original show. However, it seems to me that the best way to solidify that connection, and make sure it's not lost, is to bring the original show into the spin-off... Let's say, the Torchwood team has to deal with the Doctor. I think it'd just be better all around, but maybe that's just my opinion Smiley
I completely agree with this.  The Doctor appeared in SJA twice, and really made the episode great.  I love crossovers, and feel there should be more, (although I reserve judgement on the upcoming Star Trek: The Next Generation / Doctor Who crossover comic until after I've read it).

I have spoken to other fans who disregard all the spin-offs, stating that "if they don't have Doctor Who in them, then they aren't Doctor Who!". 

Sarah-Jane Adventures was an excellent series, and I loved sitting with my kids to watch them. Some of the episodes were even scarier than many Doctor Who ones.  My kids loved SJA, but their favourite episodes were the ones in which the Doctor appeared.  It seemed to them that as part of the whoniverse, the Doctor should be in it more often.

Torchwood on the other hand had no Doctor (I think we heard the TARDIS once?), and as a series, I found it far less like Doctor Who, and more like a separate entity that happened to have the same actor with the same neverending life.

Of course, as a fan, I have to watch every spin-off, read every book, listen to every audio, etc... but I do feel that some of the spin-offs aren't really Doctor Who at all.

Bernice Summerfield was a character that only appeared in the Virgin NA books, but then went on to have her own audio series and books - I'm reading the Benny books, yet I'm finding that I don't think of them as Who-related at all, but like Torchwood, just good stories about an exciting character that happens to have been in the TARDIS in their past.

I'm working my way through all the Bernice Summerfield stuff at the moment (still waiting for those 2 books above, and have ordered a couple more since then) - the rarer ones (that are £70-£100 on eBay!), I just download the PDF version to read them.  My DW eBook collection is virtually complete (over 900 books on my hard-drive, including SJA, Torchwood and Benny!), and although I'm still a long way off, I'm trying to get paper copies of all of these, preferable hardback, starting with the rarer ones, as their prices go up faster.  I figure it's gonna cost me between £5,000 and £10,000 to do it, but will be something my kids could sell after I'm gone...

I do enjoy the spin-offs, but they don't seem to give me the same enjoyment that Doctor Who does.

Just went down again, for a couple of minutes (which happened to be when I tried to post - lol).  It loaded the new thread page, dies while I was typing, then came back within 3 minutes of my attempt to post (fortunately, I tend to copy/paste my posts, especially longer ones, to Notepad before clicking the 'Post' button, just in case something like this happens).

I've sat up half the night just to ensure I bagged a couple of eBay bargains.

Signed copies of the following two books!  Cheesy


Neither of these could be called Doctor Who books, but I still think of them as part of the extended Whoniverse.  I was just wondering what other people thought of these spin-offs.  Has anyone read them?  What are your thoughts on the Iris Wildthyme and Bernice Summerfield series, are they really Doctor Who, or do they share the same bus (the number 22 to Putney Common), and try to ride along with the Doctor's success?  What about other spin-offs? (Graceless, Jago and Litefoot, K-9, Companion Chronicles, Short Trips, etc...)

Personally, I think all these spin-offs are great, and help fill the gaps between Doctor Who series.  I collected all the DW New Series Adventures books, so have started on the Bernice Summerfield ones (I have the first 3 from Big Finish sat on my bookshelf, the new one above will be my 4th).

I suspect a landslide victory may be on the cards here, but I have to go with Genesis of the Daleks.

When we get down to three stories we will begin to -2 and +1, but for now its one point each way Smiley
What happened to this?  I'll stick with current convention until told otherwise though...

Blink - 13
Turn Left - 38
The Girl Who Waited - 17
