    OK - title says it all.....

    What do you think of the new Doc (Matt Smith)??

    I have to give him the benefit of the doubt for now... He's got big shoes to fill following MY favorite (David Tennant)

    Best episode since Blink which was also a Moffat one. Such an enjoyable episode, it all worked really well for me. Ok I could pick it apart and find flaws but compared to episodes by RTD, it was perfect.

    Matt Smith is better than the annoying Tennant for me (he always seemed up his own arse). Potentially could be one of the best based on that one episode.

    Also holy crap it is good to have an opening story that was really good! Usually they are really weak and when its the companions first episode its full of needless crap, Moffat has cut the crap and given the series a real good boost in characters. RTD's characters always seemed generic and empty.

    Could be the first series since series 27 (or first to you newbies) that I could watch over and over without wanting to skip loads of episodes.

    Well, the old ones are referred to as "seasons", so Series 5 = Season 31.

    But it was wonderful; I was going to like it anyway, but I still did. How come you've only just watched it?

    I was going to change my avatar to a still from the episode, but haven't yet. I did upload a couple of shots to the Doctor Who wiki though, and added the section about the new control room.

    Also, Matt's a local boy! [​IMG]

    I found it to be a great complling episode and enjoyed it very much.

    Didnt like the complete change in theme tune and title though, sounds so bland and generic !:(

    Matt Smith has sold me in one episode

    Now that RTD is gone we can get some real sci-fi from moffat than RTD's reverse button

    Oh and did you notice something, RTD gives you farts and Moffat gives you a guy getting caught on the laptop looking at bad things

    Dr Who Rocks !

    We can't really say yet as his personality was changing throughout the show due to his reincarnation and only stabilized at the end, will see next episode

    Russell T Davies, he was the show runner. His episodes were mostly poorly written (first series ones were good though) and he kept on with the fart gags.

    Watched it last night ( On BBC iPlayer ), it was really good, you could tell that things had changed but most of the changes were good.
