Doctor WhoWelcome to our collection of TORn’s hottest topics for the past week.  If you’ve fallen behind on what’s happening on the Message Boards, here’s a great way to catch the highlights.  Or if you’re new to TORn and want to enjoy some great conversations, just follow the links to some of our most active discussions.  Watch this space as every weekend we will spotlight the most popular buzz on TORn’s Message Boards.  Everyone is welcome, so come on in and join the fun!

Here on the Boards, we have interests beyond Middle-earth.  Hence, the excitement of the first show for the regenerated Doctor Who is definitely there!  So put on your scarf and park your tardis as you check out the Off Topic Board chatter lead by Lily Fairbairn here.

Over on the Main Discussion Board, Bracegirdle had a great question about Cirdan… that most elusive Elf.  Check it out here.

As we wait for December and the last Hobbit film to FINALLY hit the screen, we can’t help but ponder what other actors could have done Tolkien’s characters justice.  On the Main Discussion Board, Arannir led the discussion on casting The Children of Hurin here, and Thorin’s Apprentice hit the LotR Discussion Board about casting in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings here.  Tell us what you think!

Want Hobbit Movie News?  TORn poster DanielLB bravely ventures into the very rich and fast-moving Hobbit Discussion Board to collect The Hobbit Headlines.  Check out the latest action here.

We’ll share more topics next week and hope you join in on the conversation!  Don’t forget,’s Message Boards have over 11,100 registered Tolkien fans, just like you.  Let your voice be heard!
