For those who haven't been keeping up, the broadcasted portion of season 2 is findable in Youtube. Outstanding season so far.

I've really been enjoying this season. I can't wait for the Doctor to come back on tv too.

I like how Jack lightened up a bit after finaly finding the doctor.
...carbon stars with ancient satellites colonized by sentient fungi. Gas giants inhabited by vast meteorological intelligences. Worlds stretched thin across the membranes where dimensions intersect...

Just saw episodes "Adam" and "Reset" last night on tivo. Great episodes. "Adam" was a very sad episode. You really feel for Tosh how she just keeps getting beat up emotionally with every relationship she tries to have. It's neat to see Owen getting a taste of his own medicine from Tosh though.

"Reset" was great to see Martha again even though the whole episode was kind of silly with the giant may flys and the chest buster alien moments. I miss the Doctor.

You're kind of right about reset, but the concept of curing anything and everything tends to overshadow the questionable choice in monsters for me.

Wait until the next episode.

I do like the concept of curing anything but at the expense of the aliens. It reminds me of the Doctor Who new Earth hospital with the cat nurses that can cure any disease but a the expense of the people down in the basement.

Besides you can't go wrong with Martha Jones strapped to a table. ;)

I must say I was a bit shocked by the ending of the Reset episode.  I can't wait to see what happens this week.

Just finished the second season. Really good season, but it won't be the same next year.  :(

For those Doctor Who fans, the season premier is supposed to be up on the main site.

Cool. I'll have to check it out. I just finished watching the torchwood about the sideshow people. I've got the current episode on the tivo right now.

Are there 13 episodes in Season 2?  I just watched episode 11 last night.  I am wondering if a rumor I heard is true if people are saying Season 3 is going to be different.

Yes, two more episodes on BBCA -  Fragments and Exit Wounds. Lets just say that Spike (Captain John) is back and things change alot in the last episode.

Aren't we suppost to see more of Martha Jones in the first half of the new Torchwood season? Then she will return to Doctor Who during the late second half of season. In the mean time we have to deal with the awful Catherine Tate for the first half of Doctor Who.  Is David Tennant still taking a year off from Doctor Who to do Shakespeare delaying season five?

Catherine Tate was the best thing about the season opener imo and is in all 13 episodes with Martha coming back half way through the run.  DT will be in the 3 specials in 2009 but it's not yet known if he'll be in Series 5 (if there is one).

Edit: also saw the end of Torchwood 2: you're not kidding about S3 being different! Probably won't want to watch it now  ;D

From what I have read, it was always the plan for Doctor Who to take a year off after Season 4.

I've heard that as well. Bummer, but as long as we get something (the 2009 specials,) and it comes back, it's all good.
