Just watched eps 1 - 4 of the new series in one sitting.
Ep 1 New Earth: ;D ;D ;D
Ep 2 The Queen Victoria one ;D
Ep 3 School Reunion
Ep 4 The Girl In The Fireplace
There's some Blackadder lines creeping into the dialogue! (not that this is a bad thing...)
I love that the show is exploring emotion as well as nerdy sci fi whizz bangery. It makes me feel like the show has grown up with me. I liked all the whizz bangery and crap sci fi when I was a kid, and I still do, but having some human drama involved makes it far more watchable, for me at least, than it would be otherwise. The improved production values are also greatly appreciated!
Rose didn't give me the shits in the Ecclestone Dr Who series, in fact, I went to great pains to defend her at time. This time around she is starting to annoy me - especially in episode 3.
(Maybe I am being too harsh though - one minute I am saying I like the upped attention to human emotion, and yet when Rose displays some of the less attractive facets like jealousy and possessiveness, I turn on her! )
David Tennant is a beautiful, intense Dr Who, and I appreciate and applaud the depth he brings to the role.
Whoever thought of the idea of having Dr Who wear glasses at times, THANK YOU.
DT can do no wrong really. He is superb in everything!!
Did you see the third episode, "School Reunion"? I blubbed...
The reunion with Sarah Jane. Whoa... cos part of me was thinking how thrilled DT must have been, as a Dr Who fan, to work with her!! And because it was so heartbreaking knowing how she must have waited...and waited...
(It was my fondest wish to be Dr Who's assistant when I was a kid. I knew it wasn't real, but how I wished it was!)

The second part of that wasa really quite eerie...although the ending of it was a bit strange. Why did the Doctor let Mickey stay? Having spent all his time warning them against the dangers of parallel world, I thought it was odd that he let him stay behind, even if that world HAD lost it's Ricky... Anyhoo, it's Mark's episode tomorrow! ;D
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Excellent point, TLT!
I haven't been altogether pleased with the way the Doctor has been treating poor Mickey. It was almost like he was glad to see the back of him IIRC, the second to last Doctor wasn't as annoyed by him, was he?
