    So I just finally finished listening to ep. 106 (?) which was the McGann years. I'm a little behind on my Podshocking. And all the talk about hoping McGann gets some additional screen time got me to thinking. Here in the states when CSI did really well, it was no big deal to create a second show about another CSI team in a different city. And when that did well, to create a third show about a third CSI team. Granted, Miami was half as good as Vegas, and NY was half as good as Miami. But since Doctor Who is only thirteen episodes anyway, couldn't they have a second series of thirteen episodes focusing on the 8th Doctor during a different time of year? You could split off some of the creative team. You could use the same studios with some minor TARDIS changes. Ultimately, you could have 13 weeks of Torchwood, 13 weeks of 8th Doctor adventures, 13 weeks of Sarah Jane Adventures, and 13 weeks of 10th Doctor adventures. We could have 52 weeks of Doctor Who related TV. No waiting. Big Grin

    I couldn't agree more, although I might ammend an earlier comment I made on podshock. I once said that the 8th Doctor's production team could use the scripts from Big Finish audio adventures as the basis for their tv scripts, but I imagine an actor of McGann's caliber would have little interest in revisting an old story. Plus, I personally like to consider 99% of those audios as canon.

    I think a full season of McGann would fit in perfectly during the official hiatus.

    Personally I think New York is head and shoulders above Miami, but that's just me. Cool

    This brings up an interesting question. Is the 13 espisode thing a British thing? It seems all of their best shows are 13 and most of our series are 22-24 episodes.

    I haven't watched NY since the first or second season, so maybe it's gotten better. I didn't like that Messer guy much, and I was annoyed when Hawkes went from a doctor to a field guy out of the blue.

    I know Primeval was six episodes its first season and it will have seven episodes in its second season. Life on Mars was only around seven episodes each season, too, I think. The RTD shows all seem to be thirteen. I don't know about other UK shows.

    Actually NY had a story about a guy who thought he could time travel. They had the tardis sound effect and everything.
