Dean reports the good news that the SciFi Channel will be airing the first season of the new BBC Doctor Who series. Yay! It was previously only available in the states if you were willing to find and download the episodes from the Internet. (Which being a hopless geek, I did.)
Here’s one of my favorite scenes so far from the new series, from the episode Bad Wolf. The Doctor is confronting the Daleks, who have captured his companion Rose and are holding her hostage while their massive fleet of saucers prepares to invade the Earth.
"We have your associate! You will obey or she will be exterminated!"
"I said no."
"What is the meaning of this negative?"
"It means no."
"But she will be destroyed!"
"No! ‘Cause this is what I’m going to do: I’m going to rescue her! I’m going to save Rose Tyler from the middle of the Dalek fleet! And then I’m going to save the Earth! And then, just to finish off, I’m going to wipe every last stinking Dalek out of the sky!!"
"But you have no weapons! No defenses! No plan!"
"Yeah! And doesn’t that scare you to death?"
