This would have the actual midway point of the third season the BBC sci-fi series, but the Eurovision Song Contest bumped the latest episode to next week. With that in mind, I hope to address the other W-ho fans.

Series Three makes its North American debut in Canada on the CBC on June 18 then the Sci-Fi Channel in the US will air it starting in July.

IMO, there isn't a whole lot of buzz when viewing this year's round of adventures. Maybe it's lack of Billie Piper or that the "honeymoon" period with David Tennant is over. I will say though that Tennant is becoming one of the better Doctors since the Fourth Doctor's regeneration as he's more assured in his performance. It's vague to me; I like this series well enough. It's probably the lack of Mickey Smith updates and TARDISodes. (Click on each episode title and look for "TARDISode.")

As for arcs: 2005 was Bad Wolf, 2006 was Torchwood, 2007 is something called "Saxon." If you're following fan speculation, then...

Many are believing Mr. Saxon is the Master or his associate...but I'll wait and see

I like the new companion, but I hope RTD gets more creative in the types of assistants the Doctor has beyond contemporary young ladies from London. Maybe not. One old monster from the classic series resurfaces, but don't get hyped up for its arrival. And yes, the Face of Boe appears and makes his promise.

Those who guessed the Face would say "You Are Not Alone," pat yourself on the back. The Doctor still believes he's the last Time Lord. Someone (RTD?) said that they are both right.

I am looking forward to the upcoming return of BBC's Captain Jack and I my eyes boggled at the title of the Series Three Finale:

You have just made my day! Mind you, I probably could have viewed it as it aired in the same manner I viewed Torchwood, but I much prefer to see it on a TV. I knew that Sci-Fi would pick it up eventually and that it hadn't even wrapped up in Britain yet, but I was beginning to feel like it would be the day after never before I could see more new Who. Now, I know that I only have to hold out a couple of months. From reading the spoilers, I'm pretty stoked to see what happens. Thanks for the info...

One of the Thirty-two (or maybe Thirty-four....)!

June and July will be excellent for me as a WHO fan, because, of course, as JALman mentioned, we get series three on Sci-Fi in July, but also, for us Colorado Whovians, Rocky Mountain PBS will begin airing the Eccleston episodes in June! And being that PBS is, well, PBS, no commercials! Sweetness!

I've avoided reading spoilers and what-not, but now I'm starting to get that itch to find out just a little bit of what's going on. But I'll hold my breath a bit longer.

I can only imagine that this new season of Doctor WHO will be off the charts awesome. Maybe even masterful, no?

Left or Right, apathetic or not... VOTE.
