Also, because Warner doesn't really OWN the BBC Classic DW at the moment to sell to HBO--
Those are currently held by BBC/ITV streaming network Britbox, who's also been running them as their own 24/7 streaming-broadcast channel on Viacom-owned PlutoTV:

It's...complicated.

Still, if Sesame Street and New Doctor Who ever have to come to an inevitable end, HBO's just the Jack Kervorkian to do it.

The presence of Sarah Jane Smith, plus mentions of Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart and an appearance by Jo Grant solidifies the new series' acknowledgement of Classic Who.

Even though they get it completely wrong, of course, in trying to pitch the series to "romantic subplot" female viewers--
The episode where SJ returns to say "How could you leave me like that??" doesn't make much sense, when you remember that SHE left HIM at the end of "The Hand of Fear".

And let's not even get into the whole "Tin disco-dog" attempts to get "retro" kitschy 70's laffs out of K-9. :(

Would just point out that Warner and HBO are obviously one and the same. WB doesn’t need to own Classic Who to "sell" to HBO...the deal is for the new series, which the BBC has licensed to WB/HBO.

It’s within the BBC itself where they have the identity crisis, not actually admitting that the first Davies series was actually a continuation and not "Series/Season One" that they keep insisting on.

Slightly darker trousers for Jodie in the next series. And speaking of, here are some details from filming the other night.

I think we've all had those "Slightly darker trousers" moments at one time or another. :lol:

Interesting essay on the Tennant Doc and why his shoes (technically sneakers lol) have been so incredibly hard to fill. (Can’t believe it’s been ten years since he left. :shock: )

And oh wow I remember watching this for the first time.... :cry:

I loved End of Time and everything (even with the many, MANY plot inconsistencies) but was kind of disappointed in a way because I was ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that his actions in Waters of Mars (the whole Time Lord Victorious/altering history thing) would come back to haunt him and become a major plot point in Ten’s “song” finally ending. Ugh, what a tease... :?

A Christmas special confirmed... in comic book form!

I like cover C since it gives the allusion of coming bundled with a little Jodie action figure. Such fun!
