Doctor Who-oly crap, that was good.

Well, the new seriesof Doctor Who premiered on the BBC last night and, flipping heckers like, it was good.

I liked the David Tennant years - in fact, I'd say he was one of the best Doctors (my favourite being Tom Baker as he was of my generation) - but Matt Smith has bought something manic, crazy and fresh to the role. With Stephen Moffat taking over from Russell T. Davies (Davies who was always very hit and miss with his episodes, in my opinion) there seems to be a new energy. The new assistant is looking to be a good one and the aftershow taster of things to come showed me many pretty and exciting things, not the least of which was WW2 Spitfires attacking spaceships. In space. Crikey.

Looking forward to the future with this show. And the past.


  1. I can't agree more! The new Doctor was awesome!

  2. Sorry, but I think Matt Smith as Dr Who is as lacking in personality, substance and imagination as his surname. He's awful. Face a slap of concrete with recessed eyes and mostof the time seems to be trying to emulate David tennent (not much chance of that working really with his talent).

    No, this time I think the BBC have 'picked a wrongun' as they say in the trade.

    Used to watch every episiode without fail, now can't even be bothered to see when it's on.

    Roll on the next Doctor with some substance hopefully.
