    Hello everyone. I´m not sure if I´m writing this to the right place or if somebody had this idea before, but I must write it.
    It´s about Doctor - David Tennant. A lot of people think he is the best doctor so far and I guess we never see him in Doctor who again.
    So, for the satisfy fans like me, please create new serial (spin off) about the human-doctor and Rose - (End 4th season).

    This is my opinion, please comment if you like it smiley - smiley And sorry for my english, thanks for your time.

    RTD actually had an idea for a spin-off with Rose in the alternate Earth but even the professional fanboy and creator of Torchwood thought it was a spin-off too far... But then the project was tentatively titled "Rose Tyler: Defender of the Earth" or some such...

    But while I imagine Billy Piper wouldn't turn down the work, I think Tennant is pretty busy and the perennial complaint of EVERYONE involved in Doctor Who was the very lengthy shooting schedule and the fact a lot of it was in Wales.

    I have watched "The Snowmen" again and I tried to spot the homages to the olden days. There should be a spin off about Ian Chesterton while William Russell is able to play him. Perhaps there should be a series about Ian's descendents and their grandfather. I liked the reference to "Old Sherlock" It reminded me of Tom Baker in "The Talons of Weng Chiang" , The Great Intelligence comes from Patrick Troughton's days and the Victorian clothing in general harks back to William Hartnell's time when he dressed as an dapper gent from the wrong century. As for Oswin, that is clever. It comes from Anglo Saxon roots meaning God or Good Friend!

    I guess someone would watch it. I wouldn't, though. As for David Tennant being the best Doctor so far, I can think of at least ten who were better.

    It does not really appeal to me. I can think of other characters that would in my opinion make more interesting spin off series.

    Good God no - Rose Tyler has been done to death, she was an OK companion but certainly not the best of the RTD era.

    Can't agree that Tennant was the best Doctor ever (I don't actually have a favourite just favourite stories) RTD made the 10th Doc far too human for me.

    I'd have loved to have seen what SM would have done with Tennant's Doc.

    Did we ever find out what happened to Susan, the Doctor's grand daughter, in the end? I don't think he ever went back to visit her, as far as we know, after she stayed behind on a planet. I suppose we are meant to assume that she was killed in the Time War, but perhaps she survived and regenerated. In regenerated form she might be useful in a "Sarah Jane" type programme. The Doctor could come across her in the main Doctor Who series, and then she could be spun off.

    She also appeared in The Five Doctors, still played by Carole Ann Ford, obviously looking a bit older. She appears randomly in 'the Death Zone' wearing a raincoat and, unlike Sarah and the Brig we don't actually see where she was scooped from (presumably 22nd century Earth).

    Who knows whether she can regenerate or not, is she a TIme Lord or simply a Gallifreyan? She was quite young so probably hadn't graduated from the academy.

    It has always seemed to me unlikely that Susan could regenerate. If she could, I find it hard to believe the Doctor would have left her stranded on Earth with a man who she would logically be destined to outlive by centuries.

    I've always believed that in order to have the power of regeneration then the Gallifreyan would have to have graduated from the academy, which is why you never see Chancellory Guards regenerating after being killed - although why the Castellan never regenerated in The Five Docs, I don't know - perhaps the staser blast and threat of the mind probe were too much for him.

    Castellan Spandrell's comments about the Time Lords in The Deadly Assassin, and the fact that he didn't know about the Time Lord data extracts, has always made me suspect that the Castellans are not necessarily Time Lords themselves and that their position on the High Council may be an honorary one; they are, after all, basically the head guards, and the guards as you say clearly aren't Time Lords.

    Thanks for reminding me of that, I had forgotten. I suppose it depends on whether being a Time Lord is hereditary, or whether it is something that you become once you have graduated from the Academy (or perhaps both!).

    Personally, I think I lean towards it being hereditary, in that a Time Lord regenerates whether they know that they are going to do it or not, but they don't know all the history and law connected with being a Time Lord unless they have graduated from the Academy.
