Liking the new series!!!!!

Wow.  Liking the new series so far!!!

I'm a big fan of David Tennant, but Matt Smith is doing a great job.

I've unplugged from the Gallifreyan Embassy due to too many spoilers in the forums and webshows.  I was getting way too much info on the upcoming shows. 

I am really enjoying the series more this way.  I've always liked reading messages about the shows in the forums, but I think there are too many jaded posters.

I read just a few messages today and it seems same old same old. 

The usual...Why can't Doctor Who be more like the classic show...?!?!?!?!

                 (Insert name here) is just not my idea of the Doctor.

                 This episode could have been so much better if they would have done....

The Beast Below: SPOILERS!!!!

The tone of the Moffat series begins to really be set with this story. The dark fairy tale indeed: part Peter Pan (I was interested in Moffat’s explanation of why Amy stays in her nightie and liked the analogy of her as Weny darling to the Doctor’s Peter Pan); part Jonah and the Whale; part Terry Pratchet; and a bit of little Red Riding Hood thrown in for good measure. It’s a tone which is something new for Doctor Who and something which I think I’m going to like a lot. Having said that, this story was never going to live up to the promise set by the first episode – my expectations were far to high and although there were definite pluses to the story, there were quite a few minuses for me as well.


This Weeks Episode

No spoilers here....but when he loses his temper I applauded!

GT Magazine's World Exclusive with New Doctor Who: Matt Smith

GTAs Doctor Who returns with a new team and a new look this spring, GT Magazine eagerly stepped on board the TARDIS for Matt Smith's first ever interview with the gay press. And in 47 years of the show, he is the first Doctor to ever hold the cover spot of a gay magazine. 


The April issue of GT Magazine is also sporting unprecedented coverage of the new series, with exclusive content including the first ever interview with the latest addition to the cast, Arthur Darvill. They speak with the Doctor's assistant Karen Gillan, head writer Steven Moffat, executive producer Piers Wenger and a selection of other characters and creatives, both returning and new.


What's more, writer Gareth Roberts reveals that Matt Smith is set to appear pretty much naked in episode eleven, while costume designer Ray Holman tells us what kind of underwear the new Doctor prefers…
