Just thought I would view my opinion of the new Dr Who series,and would be interested in your opinion please.
Putting to one side the last four years with David Tennant as the Dr,my following opinion is based on the first episode.I know its a bit unfair to judge after one episode,but here go's.
To start with,the new Dr Who theme is barely recognisable,not keen on the new intro graphics either. The story was OK, the alien creature and the space ship with the giant eye was laughable.The new TARDIS interior was very disappointing.I had been looking forward to seeing the new design/set.
Matt Smith as the Dr was very refreshing.Each Dr has their own style and quirks,his were very original.But I will leave final judgement until the end of this series.
I must say,his line instructing the chap to delete his internet history was brilliant.
Overall I was a little disappointed,it didn't live up to the hype,but lets hope the remaining 12 episodes define this series.
I think the BBC need to make up their minds who they are aiming this series for. The once who are really in to Science Fiction will enjoy it well enough. But I think that some of the younger children will have a job to understand some of last nights episode. A young nephew of ours a 7 year old was watching it at ours last night and I had to spend a good part of the episode explaining to him what it was all about.
As an old fan of the Dr's. from the very first episode I think the new series have been very good and managed to bring it right up to date to rival things such as Star Wars.
