Oh new TARDIS!

You are a thing of joy and colour and beauty and I love you! And - Old Skool music and credits! How very wonderful.

Very much like this new Doctor too, nice ironical tone but not too heavy handed. Eppy was a bit frantic, desperately trying to do too much too soon so - exactly like every new Doctor first eps I've ever seen,  I expect it'll get over itself and settle down before next time, but you know what I liked best? An ending, a good, proper, interesting, engaging, exciting end, no rubbishy let downs.

Very refreshing. ;o)

I finally forced myself to watch the last episode. Oh Show! Make me cry why don't you? looks like wonderful new beginning though (crashing burning Tardis). Now I can't wait to see the new one.

You're talking about the last Tennant ep? It made me cry too, but probably not for the same reasons. ;o) The new show is a refreshing return to proper Who and not before time imo. I hope you'll enjoy it, I think Matt Smith is going to be wonderful.

I loved it. I wasn't expecting to. But I loved it. All of it. :-)

I thought the plot left a bit to be desired, tbh, some scenes drawn out way too long, others much too short and frantic but mostly, I thought it was terrific, especially Matt Smith.

Patrick Moore flirting with Annette Crosbie even! Definite yay there. Dunno about the music though.

The music filled my heart with purest joy from the first moment! I've always preferred Delia Derbyshire's original over those overblown orchestral arrangements we've had since the 96 tvm so I was thrilled to hear they've gone that far back to basics. The new Tardis was fabulous and it looks like she'll be playing a bigger role in future eps too, which pleases me, she's had short shrift in the past 5 years.

This all sounds very positive - I've read a couple of reviews now that rave over the new doctor. I think I've been persuaded to give him a try.

I think he's a distinct improvement, myself. You should definitely give him a try - what's the worst that could happen? :o)
