Sci Fi brings back The Doctor, and Sarah Jane, too
Sarah Jane is aided by a small group of children in her quest. And while the series has a lower budget than Who and is geared more towards a children's audience, I still found it to be tremendously fun. And any opportunity to see K-9 is worth it in my book!
The good Doctor, still played by David Tennant for now, is joined this season by Donna Noble (Catherine Tate reprising her role from "The Runaway Bride" Christmas Special). I have to say, this casting I find odd as Noble was a bitch and from what I've seen in promos for future installments, continues to be a bitch. In fact, the character had no redeemable or like-able qualities. Maybe, after losing both Rose (Billie Piper) and Martha (Freema Agyeman) whom he actually liked, the Doctor is feeling a bit masochistic.
The Doctor: "Right then, who's the most horrible person I've encountered lately."
Donna: "Oy! You there! What you doing around here?"
The Doctor: "Well what do you know, just who I was looking for, only I didn't really know I was looking for you. You being who I was looking for more in the general sense than the sense that I was looking specifically for you, but it is you that I was looking for ... and here you are! Brilliant!"
Donna: "I don't know what--"
The Doctor: "Come on then, lots to do. Time's a ticking, if you know what I mean. Not that it really matters, I suppose. Time Lord and all that."
Donna: "I'm not going anywhere with you!"
The Doctor: "But I'm the Doctor. Everybody wants to go with me."
Donna: "Like hell! I'd just as soon--" (The Doctor bashes her on the head with a cane and then looking carefully both ways drags her into the Tardis).
The Doctor: "Yes, you'll do just fine. Just fine." (The door closes and we hear the familiar groaning sound as the Tardis fades away.
Man: "Donna, did you come this way? Where the bloody hell could she have gone?" (Looks around). "Oh well, good riddance that one. What a bitch!"
Thank god Martha is coming back mid-season (and rumors have it Rose may be back too in some capacity). And in the meantime, Martha will be making a limited run appearance on the second season of Torchwood currently airing stateside on BBC America. If you're a fan of Who and you're not watching Torchwood then now may be the time to start. You've already seen Torchwood's fearless, immortal leader Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) on various Who episodes, so you're practically family!
