Since not everyone has seen every episode of the new 2005 season with Christopher Eccleston, I am asking that people use a "spoiler" warning and spacing when necessary in this forum (or in other forums when referring to new episodes that have not yet been broadcast everywhere yet).



Arrow By that I mean, if your post is going to reveal a story element that would "spoil" the story for someone that has not seen it, please be thoughtful enough to warn people by including a warning in the subject line (for example: "Bad Wolf (contains spoilers)" ).



Arrow Or use spoiler spacing within the message itself. Using spoiler spacing means doing something like this:



Pretend this is a message posting. Yada, yada, yada... The Doctor and Rose are groovy... Yada, yada, yada... blah, blah, blah... Oh and then in episode 13, "The Parting of the Ways"...

(spoiler space)

The Doctor and Rose encountered yada, yada, yada.. blah, blah, blah.. etc...




This is all 'old hat' for veterans of message boards and such, but this is really meant for 'newbies' that may not know about practice of using spoiler warnings.



Cheers,

Louis
