can you outgrow Doctor Who?

Another forum had this as a question and I thought my response should be put here too: Truth is DOCTOR WHO as a concept can go anywhere and do anything and who can outgrow THAT? That idea, concept can allow one to just love the show and the ideas it represents. Sometimes it even lives up to that premise but as someone else mentioned it all feels a bit too smart assey and self absorbed and "FUN" and "Dark" and all those catch phrases without having an outstanding season this year overall despite a handful of 10/10 episodes. It plays it safe on the other episodes and with the poor companion choice.

The villains of Doctor Who

For a little bit of fun I though that I'd put this story in.


In the UK paper's website of the Guardian they have an article about the villains of 'Doctor Who'. Over the weekend the data that is housed in the article has been updated and some deletions have been made while many others have been added.


The premise of the article was to try to create a comprehensive listing of 'Doctor Who' villains and provide accompanying visuails with then (one a spreadsheet, the other a 'many eyes' presentation).


Here is the link to the story:
