I thought that was a great primer for printing in .Net.

I think each time he appears the Daleks will be hiding behind the sofa!
I hear that Steven Moffat is not going to write any more Dalek or Cybermen stories on the grounds that Russell T Davies did them all to death. He said he would only bring in all new monsters.
Personally, I don't see the problem with reviving an existing species of baddies, but RTD did overdo it somewhat. I think that part of what was good about the old Doctor Who episodes is that you mostly didn't know what was coming.
I thought they were doing just a handful of episodes this year so David could do other acting gigs, but he was coming back in 2010 for a full schedule?
Nope, he anounced he was going to quit in October last year. He said that Russell T Davies hired him and as RTD was leaving then he was going to leave also. He said he had nothing against the new team that will be doing Doctor Who, but he just felt it was the best time to bow out.
A poor choice I feel. Dr Who should have a great sense of gravitas along with all of his other attributes which this chap does not. Still, the die is cast so we'll have to hope he can rise to the role. I would have liked Patterson Joseph or, for a real change, Alex Kingston.
I remember that statement. With this amount of money involved I don't understand how sane people would authorize a mission that was scheduled to last only 90 days (especially how slow the rovers move in 90 days). I know that space can be difficult but to me that (only making 90 days) would have been a major disappointment. Maybe its a bit of setting the bar so low to make achieving victory easy..
