I started watching this with some trepidation. I was pleasantly surprised. It was written by someone who had their knowledge of Doctor Who and who wrote a story or two from the classic series or so it seemed. The main lead, the doctor, was confident in their experience in science and used it to solve problems without resorting to violence. He managed to connect to several of the guest stars, despite the fact that his own wife had died years ago from something he couldn't stop. He connected to a woman who had a child and one who was about to have a child. The female companion was like his body guard, in law enforcement. She was a strong woman who looked as if she could take care of herself. Their interplay suggested great humor but not romance, despite the fact that the woman looked up to the man, this great alien like man who could solve problems that others could not. At one point, he has to leave a boring talk to "go save the world again," he says.
In what must be another slap in the face to Adric fans the "most loved" and "old team" are back together: the 5th Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa and ...Turlough! Are back. This "team" starred in TWO stories together and even then weren't a team in either story. I must say that this is revolting and makes me want to gag. It should be Matthew with Tegan and Nyssa and the 5th Doctor.

Yesterday the collection that the BBC had sent to Auction at Bonhams went under the Hammer.
The Torchwood SUV went for 18,000 pound Sterling and Jackson Lakes Costume Brought in 3,120 Pounds.
A full list of what each individual piece Brought can be Found at the end of this Piece though a Link to the Bonhams Website.
It should be also noted that the two Planet of the Dead red Busses were removed before the Auction began, which makes me wonder what the BBC has planed for those.
At the moment on the UK E-bay site, a synth from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, once belonging to John Baker is up for sale, and dates from the Pertwee Era. The Current Price is at $5,993 or 3,877 Pounds Sterling.
Anybody who fances thier chances at purchacing this Synth or just want to see how much it brings just follow the link below.
