Doctor Who

Dw

“If you’re an alien, how come you sound like you’re from up North?” asks Rose suspiciously.  “Other planets have Norths, you know” replies the Doctor cheekily.

Tongue in cheek? Yes.  Faithful in tone and content? Certainly.  The first episode of the all-new Doctor Who has just finished and gets the thumbs up from me and the team of four Doctor Who newbies in this house.  As someone who grew up with the various incarnations of Doctor Who, I think Chris Eccleston makes an excellent ninth Doctor and Billy Piper defies her media moppet image to have a good crack at the new sidekick, Rose.

A great excuse to spend 45 minutes on the sofa with the kids each Saturday evening – as if one were needed.

    Don’t give away too much. The series doesn’t start over here until April 5.

    Its weird how Dr Whos age people. I grew up with John Pertwee and then Tom Baker. After that the series hurtled towards what looked like terminal decline. How wrong we were, though the last two Drs before today were tragically bad.
    What I want to see is a Dalek get charged for crossing into the C Zone or get clamped 😉

    *sigh* it’ll be at least 2 years before we get to see Dr. Who in NZ. The state run television doesn’t like scifi.. the only show currently running is battlestar glactica.
