I just watched the episode "Love and Monsters" and I can sense there won't be much love for it, but hell, I thought it was great fun.
It is told from the point of view of a a guy who is obsessed with the Doctor. Onlne, he has met other Doctor existence buffs and together they form a little social club and become best friends. (Very Scooby Gang!) They have a mutual interest in the existence of the Doctor, home cooking and ELO. The entire episode revolves around them, so I can see that this will peeve people no end.
Won't spoil, but will say it scored high on Mr Tweeds Weird Shit-O-Meter
Heads up for Harry Potter, Trainspotting and/or Hamish Macbeth fans - Shirley Henderson has a role in this episode.
Wasn't he!! Think he could be a candidate for new companion? Or maybe he could get a job in Torchwood?
Excellent plan! Let's start the petition now!
I think these kind of eps (new character's point of view) are good for shows - adds to the complexity. I always loved it when it happened in The X-Files.
I think to me it just felt like a different show. It was fun and silly and not like Dr Who at all really. Reminded me of when I used to watch The Twilight Zone and "The Outer Limits" and crap like that!
OK SPOILERS! (Though written on popbitch so maybe bollocks) Cut and paste:
