    Any DW fans here? I haven't had a chance to watch any of this season, but now am binge watching this season.

    So far so good!

    Been watching the TARDIS travel since the beginning. Dad was in Air Force and we spent time in England in the 60's. Missed a few years in between, but managed to catch it all eventually.
    It used to be broadcast on PBS way back before cable. Now that we have BBC America on cable with on demand etc... it is a lot easier to catch an episode. :)

    I'm so sad... I woke up at 5:30am this morning to watch the whole Chris Eccleston season. :confused:

    I remember watching a couple episodes with a tall curly-haired guy with an obnoxiously long scarf, but I think it was from one of the earlier eras.

    Oh I have that same Risk. I felt that the mechanic of the Doctor regenerating made the game's "timer" too quick, we played a few games but we were always only half way through. Seemed like too many Clara trigger cards, unless we weren't playing it right or just getting unlucky? Curious what you think.

    Kids are 2, 6, 8, and 9 (oldest turns 10 in a couple of weeks). Youngest watches now and then.

    The first time, it seemed really quick, second was just right. Compared to LotR Risk, it's about the same. I mean, Clara vs the One Ring moving through territories. I think for change, every other clara requires someone to roll higher than 3 to actually move it. Might make it last longer?

    Ahh that's an interesting way to slow them down. I like it.
