I just can't understand where people get the idea that those on the left are humourless.

I just watched the Christmas episode and thought it was brilliant! A great send off for Matt Smith. But more importantly, since I've had a particular Superchunk song stuck in my head for the best part of the last month, I nearly leaped out of my seat when the church lady said "You're hyper enough as it is"...

Well, I'm a newcomer to this game but I started watching some of the ones with William Hartnell a while back, then I stopped that, then a couple months ago I started again with Matt Smith. Now I've finished off the 11th Doctor and am returning to watching all of the ones the 1st Doctor. My goodness, after having seen the Matt Smith-era episodes, jumping back to the ones from the 60s is quite a shock. It's like watching an entirely different show! The new ones are quite fast paced in my opinion, whereas the old ones are rather slow moving. I've thoroughly enjoyed both Doctors 11 and 1 though, don't get me wrong. But there's just one thing, for those of you that have watched the original Doctor:

What ever happened to Susan? As far as I can gather her character never returns, save for one or two specials. The Doctor just left her on earth, saying he'd return one day. Judging from the last Christmas episode with the 11th Doctor, the natural life span of a time lord must be at minimum a couple hundred years, multiplied by 12 regenerations... Susan must have outlived her earth-husband by thousands of years! Are we meant to believe that in all that time the Doctor never encountered her at all?

Any theories?

Doctor Who has changed a lot over its 50 years as the production teams and writers have changed and there are a number of eras that differ from the others. But the biggest change has been between the 20th and 21st century Who. This is probably partly because television had changed and also the long gap has made it more noticeable. 20th century Who was independent stories with very little links between them (and sometimes contradicted each other - most famously in what time the UNIT stories were set). The stories were generally longer and slower paced. And for me much better but that's probably because I'm old

Regarding Susan: the actor who played her left and when that happened they usually were never mentioned again except in the multi Doctor anniversary specials.

She had appeared again in some of the books and audio plays. I read the eighth Doctor one where he met her on earth a few years after he left her. I can't remember anything about it though except that it had Daleks.

Regarding Doctor numbering, isn't Matt Smith now the 13th? Or is it the 12th? Damn you Moffat for making it too hard! Though if you take Brain Of Morbius as it was originally intended (which most people don't) then he would be about the 20th.

The TARDIS has shrunk at least once before (that I've seen), with the First Doctor. Although that time the inhabitants of the TARDIS shrunk, too.

So, was that the first good (if slightly copied from blockbuster movies) Christmas special ever?

I really liked the twist! (And I totally never saw it coming because I'm rubbish at telly and stuff!)

This is really making me laugh a lot - somebody's response to an angry broflake's rant about a TARDIS full of bras (to the tune of Yellow Submarine):

On the planet where I was born
Lived a Doctor who sailed through time
And she told us of her life
In a Tardis full of bras
WE ALL LIVE IN A TARDIS FULL OF BRAS
