Briefly , among other things , this is going to be my thread where I try to get caught up with the modern Doctor Who universe before the incoming Doctor's run officially starts , figuring that this would be an excellent - ulp:-) - " jumping (back) on"  point !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  I will ask some basics of my buds/pals here .

  Maybe you will say " I should check Wikipedia " , but I think that such writing would be TMI-tending , not to mention (naturally) tending to be British-dominated .

  At this time , I've splurged on two consecutive DWMs , marking Capaldi's intro .

  As I've said , I was a fan during the " interregnum years " , rather being not able to follow the Ninth Doctor after the first few episodes shown on Sci-Fi here (I think the one with the Britney " Toxic " quote was my last one) .

  I'm not up on the plethora of " off-continuity " issues , especially the audio drammys , in modern years - I am , not to complain unduly but it is the truth , sorta poor , and the only audio I've heard IIRC was that one specially done for a shrinkwrapped-within DWM bonus CD back when I bought it more frequently...

Yeah, I have a couple of those free audios DWM used to give away. Some of them were pretty entertaining.

That one was the second episode.

I've had a suspicion that BBC TV and the SciFi channel have taken bits out of the episodes I've seen.

...You mean BBC America , yes ?????????

  I have pointed out that , " natural home " for the series Stateside though it may be , the series moving to BBC America from what was still Sci-Fi

at that point IIRC sort of points the glass ceiling " on w

what the series' popularity level is likely limited at in America - In some markets , though , don't PBS stations show second runs of the modern series ? Not here they don't .

Mississippi Public Television just showed the latest episodes.

...The last season ? Even the last Doctor's (pre-Capaldi) finish ?

They showed "The Name of the Doctor," the last episode prior to the 50th anniversary episode, about three weeks ago. I don't believe they've shown either of the two specials yet.

...Okay - at'sa nice :-) - thank you .

  I occasionally HAVE considered moving to " America's Ireland "...

They started the 2011 episodes again last Saturday night.

...Thank you .

  Someone here reviewed the recent audio which involved an alternate universe where John Brown & the Plain Men , the rock group briefly referenced in " An Earthly Child " , fill the Beatles' place in our universe . 

  I have tended to be so poor/behind that I never have actually SEEN " AUC " !!!!!!!!!!! Poor me . :-(

  It's reviewed in those two DWMs , as are two others which , from their description , interest me - one , a story involving the Doctor and Susan's initial journey/taking it on the lam from Gallifrey , which introduces another character , someone working on the Tardis/nearby when it is stolen by the Doctor and who so is swept along with them ~ and becomes physically scarred because?? of that , and so becomes a villain ~ and a Seventh Doctor (sort of " my " Doctor) + Ace story with the phrase " Assassination " in the title - set in late November 1963 !!!!!!!!! Now , I don't expect many American references in WHO , after all a British show , but in this case ~ (And considering the facts of the day the show was first broadcast ~ Oh , and that " Who Killed Kennedy ? " 90s novel .) ~ come on !!!!!!!!!!!
