    Well this was a surprise to me, maybe we're be getting a number of new posters now.

    to be frank whilst I mock it, the OG/DWF is my hub for all things Doctor Who, whilst I dont have alot to say on it, it is the best place I know that all the news no matter now big, small, true, false whatever ends up, its a one stop shop for Doctor Who news, be it, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sarah Jane, Classic Who, Fanart, Doctor Who books, aside from TARDIS wiki, DWF is one of my most important Doctor Who resources.

    This place will be great for discussing episodes, and some of the bigger news, it already is, but it cant compete with DWF for sheer size & depth of topics.

    I repeat the idea that this forum should have a general Doctor Who thread, where we can discussing anything Doctor Who (within reason) including the latest romours, whilst the bigger news stories will still get there own thread.

    Crazy! They last eight years without a show, and now that it's a monster success, they close the doors? I don't blame them, I guess. But, that was my first Doctor Who forum ever... :(

    I was the same, I did join before the new series started, but not much sooner.

    I guess someone will start a similar forum, and lots of people from OG/DWF will move over to that.

    I can't say I'm surprised.

    Hopefully any influx this forum receives doesn't have a negative effect on the forum's atmosphere.

    I guess we shouldnt post a direct link from there to here, that will only attract the crazies.

    this bit is interesting

    wow hes up himself, I can actually get most of what I need scattered across a few websites, be it here, Digital Spy, & the SJA blog.

    That website is great, but something WILL replace it, and continue in similar fashion.

    We must recruit Canterbury from OG to manage a stickied spoiler thread here. She always did the best job with that.

    Is this another rammification of the Time War?

    Anyway, I'd be okay with some new faces showing up around here. The more the merrier, I say.

    a few more wont hurt, as long as we dont get the "... is the Rani" lot, or the tragic Doctor/Rose shippers.

    Listen, I just waded through an entire thread filled with your stalker-adventures on a bus with a lesbian David Tennant. I could use a few more "-is the Rani" lot... :lol:

    Wow, that sucks.

    I don't know what I'd do if the Trekbbs closed down.

    This is exactly what I'm worried about. OG could be very negative and, quite frankly, ridiculous at times. We have a fairly peaceful atmosphere in the DW forum as it is; I can see any grudges held between members at OG being moved over here.

    That said, some new blood would be great.

    Man, there goes reading 24 pages of comments in the review thread after each show...

    Do you think we can somehow get Lawrence Miles to post here?
