    I'm open to anything Dr. Who, so absolutely. There's 4 more Doctors to add!!

    wow 50 years already ?
    I remember the late 70 watching it

    I say let SkitB handle it, as long as they are fans and could do it justice. You've got to have some passion behind the theme to do it right.

    Start at Eccleston and have Drs 9, 10, 11. Those are the only ones I know, and the rest are on the other machine.

    Don't forget Paul "Marwood" McGann (#8)!

    (I don't know who that is.)

    I tried to watch an old once, and the set behind them rattled when someone ran into it, and I giggled and stopped watching.

    It is definitely in order! Too bad it already hasn't been created to coincide with the special in September!

    I don't want the one we have, much less another.

    Dr. Who is an awesome TV show and the existing game is awesome, slightly on the shallow side, but awesome. Newer players who come by always gravitate to it.

    I'd love a new Dr. Who game, but think there are probably more popular titles out there to be made. Spartacus, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead come to mind and if Skit-B was going to do the title they may want to do IP that is a bit older and then there are even more shows or movie they could make . . . Highlander, The Big Leboski, etc.

    You've got a point

    Or just do a code update, or conversion kit

    Has that got you thinking

    If it was done count Stern out, they missed the mark on the last 50th anniversary celebration.

    That is kind of the charm of it for me. It is so campy and 'cheap' that it makes the writing stand out that much more. I was a bit dismissive of it at first, but after getting past the cheap production quality and started paying attention to the writing and characters I fell in love with it.

    Genesis of the Daleks is probably the best pre-2005 serial in my opinion!

    And although still charmingly cheesy, the 2005 reboot really upped the game.

    If someone is new to Dr Who, they should start there, as the first few episodes gently clue you in to the entire universe.

    Boy, the original series had so many great episodes you'd almost need to go season by season or at least Doctor by Doctor to be fair.

    The thinking was already going on. Just working on the mount for my P-ROC to get things going. No ETA as I don't yet really know python, but neither did a few people who have now made pretty great rewrites. The biggest challenges might be adding the doctors to the playfield but I have ideas about all of this.
