    Yeah I started watching it on Netflix a while back. I'm on episode 5 of Season 2. It's a really cool show. Don't know why I haven't watched it sooner.

    i watched the 2nd in the new season... nothing else on!
    budget is getting bigger, scripts are weak, so weak... think they must have been written on toilet paper
    wish they would sort out the music too...

    But it's dinosaurs on a space ship, but I agree, it was a bit weak and out of the blue


    I haven't watched any of it before the 9th doctor, is it worth watching?

    I've been watching Dr. Who for a few years now, since like 3 doctors ago (when it had the tall short haired and older guy as doctor) and I also enjoy it's spinoff, Torchwood, which is really good as well. =3

    I saw a handful of the older ones when they were replayed at various points in time and that special that came after the original run stopped and before the new one but I have actually not seen any of the new ones other than glimpses when I was wandering by or the starts of episodes as I was waiting for people to get ready; most of those glimpses made it seem as though it was just schedule filler and as such I have not bothered with it.

    I saw my first ever episode on Saturday and do you know what? I rather enjoyed it.

    That was certainly one of the highlights.

    But would that make Doctor Who funnier or Richard Ayoade less funny?

    remember the doctor has only 12 or 13 life regenerations....

    they better have a 24 strong team of writters and a 2million pound "movie" budget for each episode soon, other wise it's going the way of dino's on a spaceship!
    (also they should hire someone like Thomas Newman or Danny Elfman to sort out the comical soundtrack)

    this is going to show my age, watched every single doctor at least twice since i hid behind the sofa at the grand old age of 5, with Tom Baker and the Daleks, the story would run over 5+ episodes

    Thirteen regenerations, though, at one point, it was mentioned (outside of the show) that since the Doctor is the last Timelord, perhaps the rules don't necessarily apply to him. I essentially anticipate that after an amazing final confrontation as the Thirteenth Doctor, the Doctor will be on the verge of death, thinking that he has hit the end of the line. Instead though, he'll find himself regenerated, will say some final line, and through a final montage, he'll forever disappear in the T.A.R.D.I.S. Or, of course:

    (Early spoilers)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Anyways, the dinosaurs on a spaceship thing really wasn't bad. People have gotta stop being critical. I thought both of the episodes so far, although not top tier, were absolutely fantastic. Instead of appreciating what's good though, people poke holes through everything and then say they didn't enjoy it. Just shut up and love the show. Unless they royally screw up, there's no reason to hate.

    I've been watching Who since 1980 and I started with the Tom Baker era. DOAS was an ok episode but in no way does it come any where close to AOTD. The only good thing about the episode was the way the Doctor dispatched the pirate. It's something that he never ever does outright. Favorite Doctor so far has been the 10th although 11 is starting to grow on me.

    Technically twelve regenerations. You don't regenerate into your first life.

    Yes.

    I started watching around the time when "Let's Kill Hitler" was on, and I must say, I fell in love with the series to the point that I looked back and checked out the other seasons. Of course, the life-long truth of "the first Doctor you see will be the one you'll feel attached to the most" applies here and Matt Smith is, and always will be, my favourite Doctor. I like his liveliness, crazyness and positive attitude which somehow covers the fact that he is indeed a thinking man that can be quite strict and straight to the point when needs-be.

    Yesterday I watched "The Assylum of the Daleks" and thoroughly enjoyed it, tonight I'm going to watch "A Town Called Mercy", and judging from the preview at the end of the previous episode, it's going to be quite a watch!

    The Power of Three is the one of the first five that had the least information released about it.

    Looking very much forward to episode 5 though; big fan of the Weeping Angels.

    Didn't the Weeping Angels have light flickering when they were near?
