I started watching the Doctor in the mid/late 70's(I would have watched it earlier, but I wasnt born) and the only time I have not watched it was when Sylvester McCoy was the in the deceptively large blue box.

On a related note, she was my first companion and I was saddened by her passing.

Oh...and 'Blink' is a must watch episode.

Blink is good, but really, just watch anything written by Moffat in the Davies era. My favorite episode is probably The Girl in the Fireplace.

That's another one well worth seeing. Does this link work?

Ok, I finally got to watch the second episode of this season. This season is just blowing my mind! I loved Tennant's doctor, but Matt Smith is doing a great job with some phenomenal writing. Really looking forward to seeing what comes next. But I'm not looking forward to the long break right in the middle of the season!

Just saw episode 3. I liked it, but not as much as the first two. Anyone see it yet? There's a fair amount that just didn't make sense to me, but I guess they can get away with it by now just on the grounds that it makes a more fun story.

It had good moments, but overall it was pretty poor. I kind of expected that, though.

Also, space pirates.

I actually like episode 3. It was a return to the more light-hearted goofiness that makes Doctor Who so endearing. I did like the first two episodes this season a lot, but they left me feeling out of breath and full of questions. This one was just fun. It was kind of like the Christmas episode, particularly in the way it allowed Matt Smith's quirky humorous portrayal of the doctor to shine through. It definitely won't make it on a "best-of list," but it was a decent episode and a nice break from the first two weeks.

I have to say, I'm not looking forward to a 3-month gap between episodes 7 and 8!

So, was anyone remotely surprised by the recent revelation?

I was disappointed, really. I had hoped it wouldn't be that obvious.

All the new ones have been excellent and I'm eager to see more.

The one with the "Doom" looking demon at the core of the planet,
brain gobbling, body part storage, Dalek invaders, flatulent pig
tailed aliens in people suits and Iron Men too.

Which revelation? Use spoiler tags- the US is a week behind the UK, so we've just had the mid-season finale. The end of the Flesh double bill was kind of a surprise, but the finale was kind of disappointing in terms of plot. Still- the characters were all awesome.

A good friend of mine said this about the latest episode:

"Character depth and sense was thrown to the wind for the sake of melodrama, Shit That Sounds Cool, and ZOMG HOW COOL ARE THESE TWISTS. So...really...nothing new."

I think that's too harsh. I thought it was a good episode, as a whole. I am getting a little tired of Moffat's need to make everything epic, but then again, there were some terribly over the top season finales under Davies.

Maybe- I loved the Sontaran nurse and the lesbian-samurai-Victorian-Silurian (I was going to add cannibal, but I suppose that doesn't count for alien races who eat humans) though, and Rory got a decent a episode too for once. The doctor looked nicely pissed off. I liked the individual character bits, but the twists were a bit disappointing and the melodrama didn't really pay off for me.

I loved this guy though- Apologies for poor quality
This scene is better
