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. Read more

8x0: Last Christmas recap: Clara is asleep at home when something crashes down on her rooftop, knocking snow everywhere. She runs to the roof and finds Santa Claus arguing with his elves Ian and Wolf over crashing his sleigh. They try to call down the flying reindeer and pick up the scattered tangerines, and Wolf finally notices Clara watching them. Santa tries to claim that they're emergency roofers, and hastily denies that he's Santa Claus. He finally realizes that it's a lost cause and confesses, but Clara doesn't believe it's really him. Santa produces his list and reveals everything he knows about Clara, including the fact that she stopped believing in fairy tales... read more.

8x12: Death in Heaven recap: The Cyberman in Chang's office advances on Clara, who points out that killing her would be a strategic error.

The Cyberman demands to know who she is, and Clara says that she's the Doctor... read more.

8x11: Dark Water recap: Danny is in the park when Clara calls and tells him to shut up and listen. She looks at her bookshelf, which has Post-It notes of her recent life, and says that she loves him and she is never going to say those words to anyone else again. There's silence on the phone, and Clara asks for a response. After a moment, a woman asks if someone is on the line. When Clara asks to talk to Danny, the woman says that he was crossing the road and got hit by a car. Shocked, Clara runs to the street.. read more.

8x10: In the Forest of the Night recap: A young girl, Maebh Arden, runs through a forest. She comes to the TARDIS and knocks on the door, and the Doctor looks out. Maebh says that she's lost and asks for help, but the Doctor dismisses her until he notices that the TARDIS is surrounded by tree. The girl says that she needs the Doctor and that something is chasing her. The Doctor ushers Maebh inside and the girl says that she thought Clara told her to find the Doctor, but believes it was just in her head. She knows about Clara and Danny, much to the Doctor's irritation. However, he's more concerned about how when he activates the terrestrial navigation, it shuts down all the other systems. He tries to head for his destination again—the middle of London—and the navigation system confirms that the TARDIS is there. Maebh says that they are in the middle of London and takes the Doctor outside… and he realizes that all of the familiar landmarks are there... read more.
