I'm not too fond of the new look Daleks, they look like a handful of smarties. :heart:

I've gotten used to the new ones, but they were definitely more intimidating pre-'makeover'.

I didn't like the new Daleks at all. They look like a Renault Megane.

Have commented in your separate thread, DLF. Seems even more jarring in the run-up to the new series, somehow.

Well, the new series is off to an intriguing start ... and The Silence are properly creepy. Only criticism would be Steven Moffat's 'Dead,but not really' thing is in danger of becoming overused.

Is it just me, or is the most complicated episode in the past 5 years called The Big Bang (season 05, episode 13)? There are just too many twists in it. Might as well lock me up inside The Pandorica.

I remember explaining that to someone. Then I forgot about it.

Basically, it all made sense to me, in a bizarre way. It's complicated to explain, but there is a neat logic behind it. Well, there is if you've got a mind like mine, anyway, apparently.

I watched it again recently ... it does take a little following, but it does all more-or-less make sense.

The level of story ambition in NuWho is pleasing ... not sure you would've had the Doctor 'rebooting' the universe 'back in the day'.

There was an interesting documentary on Radio 4 last night which put down the supposed improvement in Dr Who's storytelling to the lasting legacy of Douglas Adam's stint as story editor. As I find Dr Who typically right-on BBC box-ticking crap I can't say.

By the way, what episode ranks as your #1 favourite since the series restarted in 2005?

Mine is 'Blink', the episode which debuted the weeping angels. That 'conversation' between Sally Sparrow and the video-tape just blows my fucking mind....it was brilliant.

'Blink' scared the crap out of me. I remember taking my mother round the garden centre the next day. Looking at the garden gnomes just wasn't the same.....

Difficult to pick a favourite. I squeeed with delight at the return of the Cybermen. The whole Bad Wolf thing annoyed me. The Mary Sue ending for Rose Tyler annoyed me no end. And I think the ending for Donna Noble was cruel and badly written.

I'm very much loving the new Doctor though. Didn't think I would - I'll be honest. But he's really won me over. So much more to him than the gurning, wide eyed Tennant's Doctor (who I also liked until I saw Matt Smith's!)

Yeah - I'm that shallow.... :D

The Doctor Dances was creepy. But I do think Blink - simply for the Weeping Angels - edges it.

Quite enjoyed the curse of the black spot...although I fear the siren was a one-off appearance :face: Also caught another glimpse of the sliding peephole and the one-eyed woman from the first story, checking in on Amy and a flashback of the future Doctor’s death. Needless to say I will need to watch everything again because these things are getting too complicated for me.

Definitely a 'lighter' episode last night ... nice change of pace.

Yep. I'm definitely going to do it.

*deep breath*

Hello. My name is Rave. And Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor ever

I really didn't think I'd like him. And I've never been more pleased to be wrong. Okay, some of the stories are annoying - I'm already heartily sick of Rescuing Rory, and Gobby Gutsy Ginger Girl. But I like having two companions. The damned annoying lovey dovey crap with Tennant and Rose, and Tennant and Martha just made me want to slap RTD with a large trout. The terrible fan-girl ending with Rose and her half-breed Doctor couldn't have been dreamed up by the worst 13 year old fanfic writer anywhere. It sucked worse than a Dalek's plunger. But - ooooooh - it's so worth it now. Now I can just forget that any of that existed.

Considering how past characters always meet up existing characters...doctors, companions...expect anything...even Mickey :pig:

If they bring back Rose Bloody Tyler, I shall have to put in an insurance claim for putting my foot through the television screen. And I shall blame Moffatt.

Fantastic episode tonight - having the 'essence' of the Tardis end up inside a person therefore allowing the Doctor to talk to 'it' directly was a brilliant idea. :D

It was marvellous. Gaiman gave us a goody. And some wicked lines.

'You call me ... sexy'.

'Only when we're alone'.

Hehehe.

"Be honest - did you, like, wish really really hard?" :D

It just had that balance of things that NuWho, at its height, does so well ... humour, poignancy, creepiness (Rory's dessicated 'corpse' lying in the Tardis corridor with 'Hate/Kill Amy' graffiti all over it ... brrrr) ... and the 'YAY!' moment when they were all in the 'archived' Eccleston/Tennant control room,

Superb. Yes. :D
