Peter Davison and some others made this little film about NOT being in the special, it's hilarious. Is on the BBC's page, but appears to be visible at least for me without IP modification, so likely also elsewhere:
I think she has. I will need to see it again soon, though.
I found the IT crowd too annoying, which is surprising, as I essentially do the same job those guys do.
I assume you meant the UK one? I saw the US pilot attempt and it went the same way as Red Dwarf US. They took something fundamentally British and took the Britishness out of it, leaving a hollow shell!
Only found this thread today. We went to the cinema on Saturday night where they showed the movie - in English. Funny enough, there were lots of fans there and they showed the movie at least twice that night. Usually, I never run into Dr. Who fans here in Germany, so I wonder where they have all been hiding.
We had visitors one day (my sister and her family). While we were having our tea, the children were watching Doctor Who. Colin, my sister's husband, admitted he never watched it and asked what it was all about. I think I summed up the previous episode in one sentence, adding that Doctor Who wins in the end, and we went back to having our tea.
I understood it and many aspects did work well. I thought it had a lot more potential, but they were too busy trying to make it an event. 30 minutes in, it was still adding plot threads and nothing significant had happened. I very nearly turned it off at that point; almost 40% of the way through and the Doctor(s) still hadn't shown any sign of meeting up.
I loved the anniversary episode. Finally some of the old sense of humour was back. The thing about the last couple of seasons was that it lost a lot of the light-heartedness that I loved in season one to four. Yesterday I finally finished season 9 with capaldi. The last 4 episodes sucked big time and we're completely weird and inane, but before that I enjoyed myself, thinking I might actually get back into the series.
