Hiding behind the Sofa....again  
I suppose I ought to get the ball rolling.

I know I am one of many who cannot avoid the temptation to follow a link to a known spoiler. I am also among those who are quite pleased and will even go so far as to say I am delighted at the return of certain characters. But I am also distressed by the return of some others.

Bad move, Russel T. Davies.

I mean honestly. Come on! give us a break. Must the Daleks show their little camera lens-ed faces in every series of the new Who? Is it possible to go thirteen episodes without them?

Just because you go and bring Rose back, doesn't mean you have to bring them back. Give us some different crazed villain from the past. Something fresh. Big guns and pepper pot adversaries are not what I really had in mind when I was hoping for this series.

I mean I will be keeping hope that all will go well, but seriously. did it have to be Daleks again. I was pissed off enough when they made such a quick comeback in Series Three. How many episodes in was that? Four! Four episodes after they were the cause of all the despair and pain of the Series Two finale.

Let's see if you can rectify it. If it is all a ploy to change it up with some other CGIed beast, I will be very pleasantly surprised.

But as it stands...we will see. I shall be biting my nails in anticipation.

Well obviously, a series of Doctor Who just is not a series of Doctor Who without Daleks.
Perhaps the 2009 specials will lack daleks...

Yes, it is very likely one will be quite Dalek-mad.

TBH, I was hoping that The Master would return, I really enjoyed his character in S3 and was rather annoyed with RTD for killing him off...:P

Well, I suppose they couldn't have him running around, I think the whole death was just to make us all sad and then give the Doctor a torch to set stuff on fire so we can fear his coat might go up in flames.

I am hoping for a return as well, but it might not be John Simm's Master. I loved him.

While I also feel that the whole subject of Daleks has been pretty much done o death in the last few seasons, I also find myself unable to overlook the fact the daleks can not only survive in the void, but also have the capability to breach it.IT may well be they will be the key by which Rose is able to get back here.

If it is a key to bring Rose back, I might be able to attempt overlooking it, because it might bare some explaination other than the big plot hole we have right now. As there is what one Dalek still out there somewhere that we do know of.

You know, I might agree normally (I for sure thought they were unnecessary in Series 3)... I am actually excited for them this time around. Why? Well Davros is rumored to return. And even though I've only really seen him in Genesis of the Daleks (one of my favorite Classic!Who serials), I think he's an interesting character. He'll bring something new to the whole Dalek thing.

Well, I might be willing to go with it if Davros were returning, but they realy weren't needed in series three except to drive home the fact that the Doctor had be come on major emo kid. With all the 'kill me now' stuff.

I would be facinated to see a return of Davros.

Genesis of the Daleks is the only good Dravos story. Don't watch the others. I have no hope that Dravos coming back (AGAIN) in season four will be interesting at all. Dravos's first death should have stuck.

I came here of my own free will and I'm hoping this will be yet another in my 12 Step Program (although that's more of the Doctor-Rose Separation Anxiety Syndrome than it is Spoiler Addict, but never mind!)

I don't want to be addicted, but I am. And I just keep getting more & more nervous and afraid. With each new spoiler or rumor or bit of news, I'm backing ever so slowly into my closet of denial in which I plan to hide until S4 is over. I managed to avoid all of S3 and I'm pretty sure I'll have to do the same with S4 - I don't think I can bear to watch it. I'm too afraid of having it end completely badly.

I figure, I've held out this long, what's one more season? As I've told others on my f-list, as long as I don't actually *watch* the shows, then it isn't part of my "reality". So why do I keep clicking on the spoilers? Gah!!!

Are we as a group going to collectively bargain RTD for compensation for the massive amounts of therapy we all are going to need after 2+ years of this hell?

Highly unlikely to be a twelve step programme. IT will likely help in your addiction or aide in the creation of one.

Yes, Series Three has major emo!Doctor in it, but the thread about Rose and all the mentions and nudges in that direction are reason enough to watch just to know that he is still thinking aobut her.

Give series 3 a chance. ^.~

You can still live in a pre-doomsday world if you want to. You could pretend that everything up to the ghosts is all there is and everything else is what could have been, and in all actuallity, the Doctor and Rose are bounding around the universe with four wild time!babies.

I doubt RTD can afford the therapy he owes us.
