    Bakers make better doctors. When I was young, I had the scarf and hat. I still eat Jelly Babies.

    "The 11th doctor`s screwdriver didn`t regenerate, his old one broke when he was the 10th, and River Song give him hers."

    No. The 11th Doctor broke his Screwdriver in the first episode of the 5th series (Series 31), when he was attracting the attention of the Atraxi. The TARDIS presented a new one to him at the end of the episode, when the new interior of the TARDIS was revealed.

    Matt Smith is the worst doctor...or rather he`s being screwed by his writers. Talk about Deus ex machina. How many times does he and his companions have to die and come back miraculously. It`s getting better and darker tho, more like David Tennant who, behind Tom Baker WAS the best doctor.

    Matt Smith is excellent, the head writer, Moffat is a real disappointment, talk about using the same plot devices over and over. He wrote some of the best episodes of the previous series` though which is why it`s so annoying. BTW Jon Pertwee, the best.

    Gotta say i love me some Matt Smith! he brought back a lions share of the playfulness the doctor shows on and off (thinking alot of tom baker). David Tennant was, no question, a f`n BOSS as the doctor! loved him for his pathos. Christopher Eccleston i had a problem with at first. couldn`t really see him as the doctor. then i went back and watched again and he was pretty awesome.

    You can probably "get away" with starting on the first season of the new series (with Eccleston). They do well enough to describe everything.

    Watched a few Dr.Who, it`s very.... British!

    Oh BTW: time travel IS impossible, eh? I mean `objective` time travel of course, `subjectively` there are several possibilities... (hope I didn`t get those backwards).

    Let the geeky-flames ignite IAB!

    Mitha, you`d have to miss out lots of them anyway as most of Troughton`s 2nd doctor (and some of the 1st and 3rd doctor`s) episodes were destroyed by the BBC`s archive department and only poor audio recordings exist for quite a few of the storylines.

    5Cats, Time travel IS impossible, for this reason:

    Imagine time travel is possible. I now travel to a time where my parents have not been born yet, and stab my grandfather to death. There`s a serious problem now:
    When my grandfather is dead before my parents are born, I will never exist. But then again, if I never existed, I couldn`t have killed my grandfather.

    I`d say this explains why time travel cannot and will not exist. Serious shame though.

    In theory you COULD however take a look back in time, like watching a movie. If you could out run the speed of light in a space craft, catch up with the light reflected off the earth in the year 0AD, theoretically you could see the birth of Jesus. Then again, these conditions can never be met. Another serious shame ;)

    Traveling FORWARD in time is completely possible, you`d just have to basically "freeze" yourself and let time pass around you.

    It`s getting BACK that presents the problem, and the only possible solution to the problems presented by reverse time travel is an alternate universe theory.

    In other words, instead of traveling BACKWARDS, you travel SIDEWAYS between universal barriers into parallel worlds that mirror our own (just started later), and then any details you alter affect only that universe`s version of the world, and you forward travel back to "your own time" (keeping in mind that in the world you just changed you might not exist) in that universe.

    In your example, you could go back and prevent your birth, then go back to "your time," but the change you caused would only affect the dimension you altered. In your home universe, you would still have been born, but you would disappear from the moment you jumped universes.

    The only thing I remember about Doctor Who is that when I was a little kid I was too scared of the theme music to watch it. My older siblings used to watch it, hence the music being on. The old versions of the theme tune were quite weird.

    I watched a few episodes of the new series a couple of years ago and was quite disappointed at how childish it was. I know that`s silly because it is a children`s program, but for some reason I was ignoring me being nearly 40 years older.

    Not really, you could go back in time and stab a grandfather, but it would not create some sort of time-ending paradox.

    When you interfered with that course of events, you simply created a new timeline; you still exist in your time, but you just ended the life of one of the many "yous."

    I hope that didn`t make me sound like a crazy person.

    Travelling backwards in time is theoretically possible with wormholes. Since they can link different parts of spacetime, they can allow travel any distance in any direction in space and/or time.

    A stable wormhole is sort of possible too, if you just consider the maths. It would require a negative mass/energy to keep it open long enough for even a photon to get through. So the maths works, but it`s not even theoretically possible at the moment because negative mass doesn`t make any sense.

    So yeah, no time travel other than the normal kind that we call forwards (at varying speeds).

    @Altaru and SPARTAKITTY
    I`m familiar with the multiple dimension theory, but it`s just that. As long as not a single shred of evidence has been found that this COULD actually be possible, it remains nothing more then wish full thinking, not a rational situation. By that logic you could implement any amount of fiction and find a way to "explain" time travel.

    Here`s another thing to think about, it has no scientific backing whatsoever, and is just something to ponder:
    If time travel will exist somewhere in the future, it will probably exist forever after it`s invention. Say mankind will live for about 2 million more years (just a random number), wouldn`t at least ONE of the millions of people time travelling in these millions of years come back to our time at some point and let slip the fact that time travel is possible?

    "Travelling FORWARD in time is completely possible, you`d just have to basically "freeze" yourself and let time pass around you."

    I don`t think that constitutes as time travelling, but rather just "waiting". ;)

    just because his universe had time travel doesn`t mean ours gets it just because he lets slip he is from the future.

    yes, its possible that dude is a total hoax, just saying, just because a time traveler travels backwards, he doesn`t necessarily share the technology even if he does let slip that he time traveled; I think Titor even tried to explain how the `spaceship` worked

    @darkmagic14n
    Again, multiple universes is nothing more then wish full thinking without any shred of evidence to back it up. Some random hack making an amateuristic website shouldn`t change your mind about that... Multiple universes is not a subject worth discussing about, as is time travel with two bean cans taped together.

    I never said time travellers would share their technology (although law of numbers dictates eventually one of em will), but they will slip up and show us normal people by accident or on purpose that time travel is possible. Since we`re talking about TIME travel here, that would happen instantly all over time.

    Again, keep thinking about the universe we live in. Arguments about fairy tale multiple universes will get you nowhere, because it`s just that, fairy tales.

    @BlackHaze The trouble arises when one considers that time travel IS theoretically possible in a numberer of ways.

    The fact that one of them (time travellers) would slip up also rises interesting questions such as why it hasn`t happened. This is one of a few things which actually lend credibility to the muliverse theory. The other which comes to mind is involved in quantum mechanics and objects in a quantum superposition.

    I`ll freely admit that I`m no expert, but it is worth looking in to.
