Come on guys, am I the only italian guy here who likes Dr. Who?


Just out of interest, do you watch the show dubbed in Italian, or do you watch it in English?

I'm trying to imagine an Italian version of Dr Who where the Doctor spends most of his time leaning against the TARDIS, cupping his testicles with one hand and pinching the bum of his companion with the other.

(Sorry, couldn't resist using the British stereotype for the Italians).

I just received my Hollywood 5.0 upgrade this afternoon. Looks like I should put a "Dr. Who demo" on top of my priotities......


Using Hollywood 5.0 to produce a demo for Dr Who's 50th anniversary. Excellent idea.

(Amazing that the show has managed to run for so long)

In fact the most entertaining Doctor was her one, played by Sylvester McCoy.



Is that for real or a joke. ?

He has to be the worst doctor ever, with Colin Baker a close second. Dr Who was going through the dregs at that period. A pity the new series didn't write him totally out of Dr Who history. The Bertie Bassett monster must have been the worst ever, Dr Who was really losing it at that stage, I am glad it has got better again

Colin Baker was definitely worse than Sylvester McCoy, McCoy suffered badly from awful scripts and iritating companions, I think he got one chance to come good at the begining oft the TV movie, weherein he promptly got replaced by Doctor Number 8 (can't remember which McGann)

That era was definelty a low point for Dr Who, the new style series is so much stronger. BBC Wales seems to make all the decent programs these days!

LOL.

I originally watched the show dubbed in italian (that was way back in 1983).
Nowadays I try watching as much as I can the original versions. That's because I use to live in South-West Texas for over a year (First in Wichita Falls, then Del Rio).

But it would be kinda fun to have such a Doctor !!!!!

As a matter of fact, I'm so used to watch British or American shows in their original version that when they are dubbed and broadcast on italian TV they sound pretty weird to my own hears.

By the way, another show I really liked was "Sapphire and Steel".

PS: I hope to get the demo done BEFORE the 50th anniversary.

Yup... Colin Baker was a pretty poor Dr Who but I think it was more down to scripts by then other than his acting ability (only decent series he had was The Trial Of A Time Lord)...

Sylveste McCoy suffered from the worst scripts ever (too much slapstick) and Dr Who was being flushed down the lavvy by then...

Sadly the modern day re-incartions of Dr Who are the worst ever, dumbed down into single episodes (two at most) for today's audience with the attention span of a gnat and the humour of a 5 year old that even a 5 year old wouldn't find amusing...

Best Doctors Ever In My Not So Humble Opinions Are...

1) Jon Pertwee
2) Tom Baker
3) William Hartnel
4) Peter Davison
5) Colin Baker
6) Sylveste McCoy
7) Patrick Troughton

All the modern day Dr's have been absolute mince, only one who did the modern series any justice was David Tennant...

Shame when they brought back Dr Who they dumbed it down it for the sake of today's audience whom can't hold their attention for more than two episodes with sad man eating wheelie bins, singing daleks and farting aliens...

They should put it to rest and just re-play the original series again...

Just to prove what a sad Dr Who fan I am, this is me with my Dalek helmet that I always wear when watching Dr Who...



I wont post the picture of me in my Servalan costume that I wear when watching Blakes 7, this is a family site after all...

As you lived in SW Texas then you're probably familiar with Midland/Odessa TX and Artesia NM where I work. I'm in Carlsbad at the moment.

I love Sapphire & Steel and my kids picked up on it a few months back and watched all of the episodes in a week! Sapphire is a babe! My favourite episode is the one in the old railway station with the ghost hunter.

Watching David McCallum in NCIS, it is amazing how little he's changed.

Yes I am or, rather, I was.
If I recall correctly, Carlsbad is the site of the famous caves.
I visited the caves a long time ago. I went through pilot training in Laughling AFB and I actually went back and forth (Italy to US) a lot between 1993 and 1997.

That was before Moon left its orbit on Sept 13, 1999 ....

Yep, the Carsbad Caverns are on my list of places to visit while I'm here along with Roswell up the road.

Don't start on Space 1999... I'm a HUGE fan of that too (Well, series 1 anyway). I have the first season on Blu-Ray. It looks like it was filmed yesterday thanks to the excellent restoration.

Apparently there's an attempt in the works to releaunch it like Battlestar Galactica. I have a link somewhere on my personal computer...

You gotta send me that link, then.

Did you know that season 1 was a British/Italian production? I found that out only recently.

I was in Roswell before, but never got the chance to visit the site. We use to fly the ILS approach in Roswell AFB. It had a very steep descent rate so it was called "The widow maker".

Anyway ... don't you start on Battlestar Galactica ....

Damn, Franko,

now I have to search Wikipedia to find the italian equivalent...

I know most of them, but I miss "Blakes 7" and "Red Dwarf".

Anyway, as said, I would also put Battlestar Galactica and Sapphire&Steel at least.

I also liked Max Headroom a lot.

Red Dwarf has just finished filming a new series to be shown on the channel "Dave" (who funded the last special "Back To Earth").

The best Sci Fi TV shows ever...

Dr Who - without a doubt
Blakes 7 - oh yes!
Star Trek (Original Series) - loive the remastered version with new CGI
The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (Original BBC Series) - love it, but that ****ing movie sucked.
Space 1999 - fantastic series 1, lack-luster series 2
The X Files (until Mulder Left) - agreed!
Stargate SG1 (First Season) - agreed!
Red Dwarf - best comedy in the world!
V (Original) - cheesy crud which hasn't dated well.
The Outer Limits (Original) - yep!
The Prisoner - I've even visited "The Village" in person. The remake sucked.
Lost - started off good, but dragged on a bit.
The Twilight Zone (Original) - yep!
The Tomorrow People - Early ones were good, the latter ones were total McCoy.
The Quatermass Experiment - yep!
The Day Of The Triffids - excellent plant design by the DVD. I can still here the "rattlle" and the "thwack" of the stinger.

I'll also add:
Battlestar Galactica (original): Great fun and it pissed Geroge Lucas off.
Battlestar Galactica (new): Best political drama available.
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - so crap it is good!
Sapphire & Steel: Mulder & Scully before the X-Files.
Deep Space 9: Star Trek as it should be... dark and brooding!
Babylon 5: Early episodes CGI done on the Amiga!
U.F.O: Series 3 became Space 1999 instead. Lt Ellis is hot!
Children of the Stones: Creepy kids series never repeated.


The Best Sci Fi Movies ever...

Forbidden Planet - oh yes!
Alien (All four of em) - get the BluRay edition! Roll on Prometheus!
Star Trek (The whole lot) - apart from Insurrection. More McCoy!
Escape From New York - Brilliant!
Escape From L.A. - meh... not as good as the first one.
Twelve Monkeys - cracking!
Dark Star (The Film Alien was based on) - Love this move. Wore out my VHS copy and now have the DVD.
Quatermass & The Pit - brillian!
Doomsday - missed this one???
28 Days Later - great movie.
28 Weeks Later - even better than the first one.
Cube (1, 2 & Zero) - never see them.
The Happening - who?
Total Recall - Love it!
District 9 - worth watching.
The Fly - the remake? Definately. Gena Davis... say no more!
Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers - all of them.
Close Encounters Of The Third Kind - Zzzzzzzzz
The Day After Tomorrow - Meh!
Independence Day - Good old "Boys Own" stuff.
Metropolis - Never see it (hides in shame)
Terminator - 1 & 2
The Day The Earth Stood Still - original only. Remake was beyond bad.
Planet of The Apes (Original ones) - watched that on BluRay a couple of weeks ago for the bazillionth time. I actually like the remake. HBC looks sexier as an ape! Charlton Heston playing an ape was a wonderful idea.
2001 A Space Odyssey - Lost count of how many times I've watched this and 2010. Read "3010" by ACC for the return of Frank Poole!
Blade Runner - get the BluRay collector's edition. Sean Young... growl!

I'll also add:
Fifth Element - "Multipass!"
First Men in the Moon - More "Boys Own" fun!
Flesh Gordon - Brillian soft-porn tribute to the original Buster Crabbe series
Galaxy Quest - a funny Star Trek spoof.
James Bond: Moonraker - like the Yanks would ever loan us Brits a shuttle.
Logan's Run - worth watching at least once a year.
Silent Running - best droids in a movie ever! Makes R2D2 look crap.
Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone - another "so crap it is good" movie.
