Yeah, I'd completely forgotten about that comment, Bella! Thanks!

Also, the thing with Renneit is that I merely assumed that she was in person so amazing a woman that he was just smitten with love. Inferred Ability so to speak.

It's been awhile since I watched that episode, but isn't there a scene where she sort of digs into his head? That could explain some of his "Oh Wow! She's amazing!" feelings.

Supposedly... [Big Grin] I'm with you, I hope we see some again. And it would be cool to run into Jenny (is that how they spelled her name?), too.

Really Blayne? When I was a kid I wanted to find them scary, but I was never able to muster any actual fear of them.

I'm trying to think of a Doctor Who monster that actually, honest to god scared me. The episode "State of Decay" scared me as a kid, but vampires in general were terrifying for me.

Ooh, I've got one. The transformational state between human and Wirrin in "The Ark in Space" didn't exactly scare me, but it did freak me out.

Ooooh...the Scary Obama thread reminded me. I was freaked out by the scarecrows in the Family of Blood episodes.

Also the statues in Blink.

I found most of the monsters - Scarecrows, Cybermen, Autons, Sontarans, and for heaven's sake Slytheen - all just sort of funny and ridiculous. The only thing that convinced me any of them were scary was the Doctor's reaction to them. Christopher Eccleston was pretty convincing that those rolling pepperpot Daleks were terrifying to him.

The man with the markings all over his face who was supposedly the devil in "Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit" was rather scary. The never-seen monster in "Midnight" was pretty freaky, the way that woman kept repeating what everyone was saying - that was a tense episode. And the clockwork men in "The Girl in the Fireplace" were a bit creepy. But really the only scary bit about that episode was when it was hiding under the bed. I still jump every time I see that.

As for actually scary monsters, the statues in "Blink" are the only ones that ever really scared me. That's the scariest thing I've seen in a long time - TV or film. I only kept watching it because it was Doctor Who and I trusted it; I still watched most of it through my fingers.

Weeping Angels! The only DW monsters that ever gave me bad dreams.

And y'all are bad. Now I have to go watch the Library episodes.

The Daleks in Genesis of the Daleks were the only time I've seen them be really scary.

"These men are SCIENTISTS! They can HELP you! Let them live! Have PITY!"

"Pi-ty? I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary."

Me too. However, am I the only one dying to know what happened when the mysterious woman took the Master's ring?

*reads other responses*

Apparently so. [Smile]

Oh, I'm definitely interested in seeing that plotline developed.

I'd also really love for The Doctor to remember that Romana II is tooling around E-Space, presumably untouched by the Time War, and go to find her. And I'd like to see The Doctor encounter Omega again.

I'm kinda interested in seeing Romana again, though Leela would be at the top of my wish list.

Am definitely interested in seeing the Master again, though I hope they'd have him be a bit more sinister and not quite as goofy.

There was a great newspaper rumor last year that one of the specials would have flashbacks to the Time War and the 8th Doctor. Apparently a false rumor, but I'd love to see a story like that.

We'll see the Time War on Doctor Who round about the same time we see the B5 Telepath War. Half past never.

Heck, I'd like to see the Time Lords and Ladies make their grand return. So many characters who were supposedly "lost forever" in the War have turned up again. Why not give the Doctor something back?

(As well as the headache of those he doesn't get along with being around again. Like *repeating* the Rani...)

He can travel in time. He's always moaning about being the only Time Lord, and being all alone, but he can go back to visit Gallifrey when it was still there.

I thought it must have something to do with "burning in the Time War" and the entire Time War being "time locked."

*what ketchupqueen said*

Plus wouldn't that just make everything worse? It's like the end of Our Town -- you *can't* go back!

Thanks Katharina...

I guess it was too much to hope that he'd be as attractive as David Tennent... cuz he's not.

He actually creeps me out a little...

Well, no one is as attractive as David Tennant, so that was kind of inevitable. [Big Grin]

I like that he's a little weird looking. I think it will be interesting.

Oh, I'd completely forgotten about him. Yes, I agree that he was rather scary, too, and the Ood just freaked me out in those episodes and also the one in season four (because of past experience). Now, they're not so freaky, knowing what they're supposed to be like.

Having just watched a bit with Romana, I'd like to see her again, too. I'm catching up on the classic series as I can get my hands on them, but it takes some time. [Smile]
