the new doctor whoRating: 12 likes, 2 dislikes
I am a New follower of the doctor who series, so I've only seen the new series and a handful of movies. (Which by the way, I was spoiled for. The older movies are just not as upbeat and adventurous as the new series.) I have watched the new series from day one. It screamed adventure, fun, and enthusiasm. Christoper Eccleston portrayed the doctor as fun loving, in touch with the universe and enjoying life. I cried when he regenerated. David Tenant was then introduced as the tenth doctor. He is a wonderful actor but not in the same charismatically exciting, energetic way. He portrays the darker side of the doctor, which doesn't enter onto the scenes as often, in a much better way. The tenth doctor is a more emotional doctor. Which in turn, takes the show to a whole new level without the producers just ending the show when they had problems with Eccleston. It's able to let the writers take it to a new level without making the same fatal mistakes as other shows have done. The graphics in the new series are just as technologically advanced as anything you would see in Star Trek or Farscape. They still hold the simplicity factor that allows even the most skeptic of people to believe at least a fraction of it. I do think that the shows producers need to hold on the cast just a bit longer. Into the third season and the two main characters have already changed. You just start getting used to a character and then they are gone. This in itself is it's biggest flaw. I have heard rumors that Capt. Jack will be back, but there is the third character you fall in love with and lose. Unfortunately, the show doesn't seem to move around England very well. I have wondered why the aliens always go for London. I Think there are other major cities the aliens would attack as well. Washington, DC, USA, Paris, France, Rome, Italy, or even Mexico City, Mexico. Aliens aren't going to attack just one city or country. But i understand that budgets and low filming costs cause the lack of scenery. It does transfer you to a different plain of thought and emotion. Wherein, you imagine things that you might not have on you're own. This is where the writers wanted to you enter when the show started in the 1960's and which is where Davies still wants you to travel. And if we are honest to ourselves, we wish to travel there as well. I am anxiously awaiting the new season to begin.

wow. just.... wow. I didn't expect this show to be this good, because I am not a fan of "futuristic" and "spaceship" and "alien" science fictions. but this show really got me.

The show has lots of humor, action and a great storyline. there are a lot of so-called "filler" episodes, but they are usually good.
both Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant are brilliant actors, and the Doctor's companion always make a good appearance. The Doctor question things like religion, morals and myths, and that he is not using any guns, sends a good message to the younger audience. you really get close to the characters in the show, and you really want to know what is going on in the next episode! it is a show you really get addicted to, and it has a very *british* kind of humor.
it is energic, exciting, filled with action and most of all, it builds up to a great season finale in every season. this show has not disappointed me one bit.
David Tennant's spontaneous movements, and his great face expressions. Rose Tyler`s passion and stubbornness. Captain Jacks surprise visits. It all makes this show really great to watch. And if you have seen the original series, you probably remember the Daleks, the Cybermen and the Slithereen? well you won't be disappointed!
