Nah, based on the previous films made at park hill it’ll be getting used as a backdrop for soviet Russia or the likes... or maybe a post apolcalyptic wasteland

yes, I feared that might the case, all that 1960s brutalist architecture.

But Iíve been in a grumpy mood all day, and decided to think positively instead for a change.

Thatíll teach me to be so optimistic in future . . .

I'm amazed there is so much fuss about a campy outdated programme for children

It is an appallingly amateurish thing, modern kids wont watch that tripe, its usually watched by childlike adult sci-fi oddballs that wear silly black sci-fi t shirts all the time, even at weddings.

They're filming in the done up bit, so I'm hoping it'll actually be set in modern day Sunny Sheffield.

Since they decided to fence off the decaying parts, it's gone all 28 days later, will need a bit of work for them to use it as a film set again.

Anyway, it's not the real Dr Who- William Hartnell died some years ago.

For a couple of years it got good, but the most recent series have been atrocious.

The 10 to 14 year-olds (both boys and girls) in my extended family enjoy it but hope it improves.

The BBC makes a fortune selling around the world.

It stopped being good when Matt smith hung up his bow tie. I watched the last xmas special that had been hanging around my sky box like an unloved quality street. It was rubbish, really rubbish.

Writing has gone to pot. Whether the new lady doctor (who they've decided to outfit like she got dressed in the dark) can spark a bit of life into it I don't know.

I have tried to watch it more than a few times but I just cannot get into it, I agree though, it is a very big money earner for the BBC and is globally popular, I must be missing something.

The problem is the show hasn't really gone anywhere. Its too repetitive. I still watch it but don't love it.

Wow, she's a long termer, I think once you get into it you stay with it, for me dropping in and out is no good because there is so many things about it I dont understand.
