Do you think that the dismissal of Porsha Lawrence Mavour as "Kelsey" will improve Sarah Jane Adventures?

A ) Probably. The show's only going to work if Sarah Jane is surrounded by an interesting ensemble. And Kelsey was a terrible character played by a mediocre actress.
B ) Probably not. The show's only going to work if Sarah Jane is surrounded by an interesting ensemble. Kelsey was a believable character who added something useful to the concept. There's no guarantee that her replacement will be any better.
C ) Maybe, but the show lives or dies on the strength of Elizabeth Sladen, not the co-starring characters.
D ) I'm really not interested enough in the show as a whole to care about its cast changes.
E ) I want to see the show, but haven't yet seen the pilot, and currently have no opinion about the character of "Kelsey".

Is there talk of re-tooling the show? Or is just speculation (or wishful thinking) on our part? I am assuming that there are several if not all of the episodes of the series already shot now. Perhaps they are in the process of having all the effects added to them. And I am speculating that it will debut right after this year's Doctor Who series concludes with the entire cast we already saw on New Year's Day with Invasion of the Bane.

Cheers,
Louis

Nope, according to sarahjane.tv and DWM 378, the character of Kelsey is definitely out. The question seems to be whether the actor was flat-out fired or whether the character was never meant to progress beyond the pilot. Either way, her narrative space will be occupied by a male character, who will (at least in my eyes) hopefully provide the third side of a romantic triangle involving Luke and Maria.

Really? Wow. I haven't been keeping up with the production of the show, so I had assumed they continued their production block with shooting of the Invasion of the Bane... but obviously now, that was just a one-off.

Hmm... Thanks for the news. Wasn't this the character that many viewers had an issue with when they saw Invasion of the Bane? So perhaps it will be for the best? I only saw it once back in January.

She was controversial, but not universally damned, as I remember the discussions. A lot of the discontent centered around whether her mode of speech was particularly realistic for someone of her age and geography.

I have a question about the polls on the website- it's not a content question, but more about the mechanics of the website itself. [So what I am really saying is that this is a question for Louis.]

After I vote in a poll, I see the results on the home page of the website. When I leave the website and come back later, the set of radio buttons for the poll is usually back, and asking me to vote again.

Does this have something to do with cookies on my computer, or does this happen to everyone?

(Oh yeah- let me just let out a little "w00t" for my 101st forum post!)

I believe the polls are tied to your IP address, not your account or your local cookies. So you can actually vote more than once if you come to the site from a different IP address. Also, after a couple weeks, even at the same IP you will be able to vote again. So it is not the most scientific or accurate voting system. But for just rating stories and such, it is fine. It is not like we are voting for Prime Minister or President here (Vote Saxon) Wink

If someone is determined to stuff the ballot box here, it won't be too difficult for them.

Louis

Which non-companion character or characters from the classic series would you like to see have their own Big Finish audio adventures?

-Duggan (City of Death)
-Lightfoot and Jago (Talons)
-The corporations and mercenaries of Androzani
-The colonists (Colony in Space)
-The cowboys (The Gunfighters)

Well, if we were to be treated to the return of Susan, I'd prefer it be a different actress so as to suggest regeneration.

But the two B/W companions I'd most like to see return are Jamie and Steven. Especially Steven; I'd love a story in which we discover he's a fallen leader, having squandered the good will he had at the conclusion of "The Savages". An old, bitter Steven who needs a young Doctor to make him remember his own youthful idealism. "The Savages" is a forgotten classic, whose characters and situations would easily fit in with RTD's vision of "good" Doctor Who.

With the coming of the full "Infinite Quest" next Saturday, we might want a simple story rating poll on the whole thing, posted at the same time you put up the poll for "The Last of the Time Lords".

I'd be interested in seeing a "Which is your favorite RTD series poll" as well, sometime in the next few weeks.

Great idea. Let's do it. Though, unfortunately judging from the responses from the last poll concerning The Infinite Quest it seems a good deal of people are still unfamiliar with it and/or have not seen it yet.

Favorite RTD series? Meaning either the 2005 ("series 1"), or 2006 ("series 2"), etc.? Right? Just making sure you didn't mean stories or his other series (non-DW series).

Yep, that would be another interesting one. Thanks.

Louis

Caught the second half of this today - and it was pretty good - and Anthony Head was it it as well which I hadn't realised before.

I think I saw enough to vote.

I think it will be repeated 8th July on CBBC (Childrens BBC) - but check nearer the time.

See we have which is the best RTD series Poll. How about a which is the worst (I bet the answers are not the reverse order of the "best: poll).

Additionally, how about who is the most annoying companion of tthe RTD series: Mickey, Martha, Donna (Kabab), Jackie, Francine Jones. I don't think we need to bother putting Rose in there.

No, I don't mind. It probably will come to no surprise to some, but the series I like the least would be the 2006 (AKA "Series 2") so far. It had some real outstanding and enjoyable stories for sure... but I feel it is the most inconsistent of the three so far... because it had a couple in it that completely make me cringe when I think about them. The highs were very high, and the lows very low.

Ironically, it does not mean that I am completely ruling it out of consideration for my favourite series as well... Yes, I realize that sounds a bit like a oxymoron thing to say... I still want to rewatch some of the stories in that series as well as this past series to really compare the three series so far.

Cheers,
Louis

I can certainly understand your feelings on Season 2. Images of kung-fu monks (Tooth and Claw), olympic torches (Fear Her), and Electric Light Orchestra (Love and Monsters) still have me shaking my head in disbelief. Nevertheless, I don't know if the series has had a lower point than the daleks hobnobbing with the cast of a Busby Berkeley picture nor a more frustrating episode than Last of the Time Lords.

Hey Guys,

We had no polls for a while, I guess Hurt/Heal has replaced it. How about a Tardis groan ranking series for the Ninth Doctor Stories, since that is the only series of the revived show which was never.
Alternatively how about ranking the weekly 8th Doctor episodes coming out of Big Finish at the Moment. I'd give Orbis about a 3/5 groans.

Louis, you should check out Orbis as there is a good one liner to add to your Sonic Newsdriver Promo.

Good ideas... Obviously, we will have a new poll this time next week to rate Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead. Then we have no new televised stories until December, so in that long gap we can do polls such as rating the 9th Doctor stories and other poll suggestions. Keep them coming.

Cheers,
Louis
