Re: Doctor Who

Yup that was good. Feels a lot less like 'going though the motions' that the recent series felt like.

Wasn't quite sure about the coming soon bit at the end with all the actors in the coming series? Few names were big enough there to warrant that IMO. Is this something they already did that I never noticed?

Re: Doctor Who

I think that's mostly to do with how different they are going that they thought showing the guest actors was an idea. I did recognise most of them.

The new lenses and aspect ratio really helped it feel big and epic.

Re: Doctor Who

It was ok, nothing special, but enough to keep me watching atm.

I think she babbles on a bit too much, I hope that calms down a bit.

I recognised about 3 or 4 of the people at the end.

Matt Smith's Doctor used to babble on a lot too.

That put me off a little.. Even though I loved the episode, I was a little put off by the fact the trailer made a thing of showing the guest stars. I've still got some bad memories of when the classic series went down that route. That said, not all the guest stars of the original series were bad. Beryl Reid sticks in the mind as actually being fairly good.

Re: Doctor Who

Thought it was good, felt like Dr Who straight away which I was worried about. Give it a few more episodes to fully decide ! See Torygraph readers are outraged about the BBCs feminist/ethnic/disabled 'agenda' - sad mod edit can't keep their 'hate' away from anything. It was entertaining that's all that matters.

Re: Doctor Who

I enjoyed it and looking forward to Sunday.

I see shades of the David Tennant version in Jody's portrayal.

Re: Doctor Who

I saw a good bit of Matt Smith there too. Mainly the babbling and running about. Then again there was a glimpse of a few Doctors.

Jodie is brilliant though.

Re: Doctor Who

I don't really like the regeneration episodes as they always tend to do too much disoriented babbling. The story wasn't too interesting either, but I can't really fault her performance for that.
