  2. First off as a generation Y person might say(which I ain’t one of-cuz I be say’n “aint”! ninnies!) “The SFX are WAAAYYY better than the original old stuff!” Yeah, I agreee(in depthly) SFX are needed as an AID to the show, not to replace quality of the acting or plot! That is were it ends The writing of today is horrid, the acting off timing and as wooden as the sets in the old days(which worked better than the “talking heads” of today) Paint your three-ply corrigated grocerystore meat-ridden cardboad box made Donald Gee Pirate spaceship model Testors Rocketship white and let it wobble on a fishing line, but if you have a presnece of dialogue(as Patrick Thoughton did) to your acting it’s still watchable, not vica versa, as in the stupid “fireworks” display at EVERY moment Doctor 10 kisses his red headed honeydue!(Christmas Cassia or whatever her name is). as in a cheap knock-off to the much more tasteful Paul McGann and Daphney Ashbrook in the movie! I hate copy-cats but this is just rub it in your face “hey look sucka, I’m mocking you again” to the Movie how ignoranamous is that??? And how stupid is it (in the whole God created universe heaven and earth and everything beyond your wildest dreams!) to dramatise a “fork lift” loosing traction with a cascade of music as if something so mundane and stupid(retarded) could be taken seriouisly!(New people must have very tame dreams to think up that “brilliant” idea!) I like the actors that play these roles, other roles they play are phoenominal!(David Tennent’s “Cassinova” and Billie Piper’s masterful “Masterpiece Theater” Performances are DVD’s to spend more than the asking price!) Why then, is it they stink at Doctor WU(are you with me on happy pill patrol, Doctor WU???) And Im only REFERENING them, “barfies eyes”! This review is about “Martha”(Freema Agyeman) and Doc!(David Tennent #10 of the London Housing Authority cockney accented alien of the universe.) Not Rose and “Your mother!” Missus Cassanova!(Camille Coduri). Okay, so my reveiw stinks, so it doesn’t fall in to the opinion of SOMEONE like you, so what! I watched this show since the early eighties and I think I know a bit about Doctor Who and what is good and what smells of fish cheese stew and Happiness Patrol drivel swine!(oh you don’t know what Happiness Patrol is, do you?) Do you also not know what scringe-stone is?(I sound like the actor/diretor who said that) if you aren’t interested in the classics that this series was built upon, then no true Doctor Whoivan cares what you think, so,zip it! now.

    I typed this on a keyboard and bloatware to make it type A-B-C-E-F-G on windows(made after Y2K and no Better Business Buro Investigations Dept!) so if my writing sucks, blame them!

  3. Since I have NOT received the product I ordered over a month ago, I cannot give an accurate review. Please send my order and I’ll consider writing a somewhat positive review. I will not ever order from this source again!!

  4. Here’s the formula for the new Doctor Who:

    TARDIS arrives.

    They meet a monster.

    They RUN!

    The Doctor stops the monster.

    TARDIS leaves.

    So many of these episodes fall into the same, tired forumla. In almost each episode, just wait and Tennant is sure enough to yell, “Run!”, then he’ll fiddle with the sonic screwdriver, the most OVERUSED prop ever, and somehow elude the villian, before wrapping up the episode leaving everyone out of breath (and bored with the predictability of the Doctor narrowly escaping yet another corny CGI-animated alien.)

    Oh, and I almost forgot: at least one thinly-veiled sex reference in each show, usually a gay one.

    The new Doctor is NOTHING compared to the classic original series. In fact, this seems less and less like a continuation of the original series, and more like that of a rogue timelord. I keep hoping that somewhere along the line, Tennant will meet the REAL Doctor (I guess he did once when he briefly ran into Peter Davison’s Doctor… a breath of fresh air in this tiring new series.)

    Do youself a favor: backtrack, and work your way through Doctors 3-7. Then realize how much better the writing was, and how much more entertaining the series could really be (even Colin Baker was better than Tennant… shocking as that is to admit.)

    Maybe I’m just stuck in old-school thinking, and I prefer the all-ages Doctor Who, instead of the new one, where regular features are grizzly mutilations, terrifying aliens (give me a cheesy Silurian alien rubber suit any day) and tiring sexual content (primarily Captain Jack: a character who is an immortal intergalactic promiscuous philanderer. Oh, great writing there BBC. And what lesson is this supposed to be teaching people? Promiscuity is fine with anyone/anywhere because you’re immortal? Give me a break.)

    The return of the Master was a major disappointment. The Doctor is turned into a house elf and put in a cage and the Master camps it up worse than Eric Roberts in the Doctor Who movie. What a terrible direction this series has taken.

    One can only hope that new writing can be brought in and the series turned in a better direction.

  5. Two and a half stars. The disgust factor outweighed the entertainment value, for me, a fan since the 1980’s. Why? The manic pacing in a 40 minute story arc has been my main quibble since the Eccleston debut. OH, IT’S INDEED ENTERTAINING, FOR THE MOST PART. (PERSONAL OPINION FOLLOWS:) But my “love/hate” relationship with all the newer “series” tipped to hate and disgust with the last two episodes here; when, it finally dawned on me–that the current producer is no longer paying homage to what came before his tenure (IF he ever did), but is instead trashing the entire program’s history! The trail of dead is enormous; he’s killed off the Daleks (for the most part), and (his own creation) the “face of Bo”, he’s killed off the entire planet of Gallifrey, and also, K-9, (looked that way), and lastly the character of the “Master”. He changed the Master to a clean shaven, effete Joker…and with that, I bade farewell to watching any more from THIS PRODUCTION; because now, it’s clear that’s it’s no longer homage, but nose thumbing, self important aggrandizment, ignoring long time Who fandom, in order to over romantisize and elevate the Doc in a sort of ever accruing messianism. Mark my word, if this continues, the program will get harder and harder to write scripts for, and thus cliches will suffice for ideas, because the ready made history will be lost. As old Tom Baker’s doctor would say, “how very odd indeed”.
