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

8x1: Deep Breath recap: A Tyrannosaurus Rex strides through Victorian London, roaring at Big Ben as it chimes. Inspector Gregson summons Madame Vastra, who arrives with Jenny and Strax. Vastra assumes that it time traveled from the past, and notices that there's something wedged in its jaws. The dinosaur finally spits out the object: the TARDIS. Vastra gives Gregson some emitters that will keep the dinosaur confined and then goes down to the beach where the TARDIS rests. She has Strax knock on the door. The new Doctor pops out, tells him to shush, and pops back inside. Strax calls to him again and the Doctor looks out, says that he evaded a dinosaur, and closes the door. He then comes out again and greets them, and tries to introduce Clara as she staggers out. However, the Doctor can't remember her name and runs back when he sees the dinosaur... read more.

The Doctor points out that no one in the universe has his number... other than the woman at the shop who gave Clara his number. Clara doesn't want him to answer it, figuring that something will happen, but the Doctor insists that it's just a phone. He picks it up and the Doctor and Clara find themselves in a dark room, holding slugs. The two people in the room, a man and a woman, have no idea who they are... read more.

8x4: Listen recap: As the TARDIS floats in space, the Doctor sits atop it and meditates. He goes back inside and muses on why people talk when they know that they're alone, Scribbling on his chalkboard, he wonders if a creature might have evolved that could hide so perfectly that no one would know it ever existed.
