    It was a great Christmas Special. I remember the last Easter Special Tennant did and they were on some desert planet doing whatever. Utter tripe. Boring and pointless. This had some meaning to it and it wasn't "OMG 10 MINUTES TO EARF IZ DESTROYYDDD!!1 HURREEH!".

    Anyway, best Dr. Who was and remains Tom Baker.

    Yes, I'm that old. Happy New Year kids.

    Torrent would be the best way to go i would think. For you guys that didn't like it, Four words... Shark with a Sleigh.

    I can't get over how folks wanna bash one of the doctors. They are all different and good in their own ways, Check out the old stuff, that is some AMAZING shit. I do have a huge bit of dislike for donna noble. Grating voice just kills me. Martha wasn't around as long as i wish she was. Rose was around a bit too long. I adore amy's voice...how amazing would that voice be waking you up in the middle of the night for a bit of fun. /shiver

    I haven't watched enough of the old stuff to really have an opinion on them yet. I do like the one with the crazy effing eyes.

    Meh, I'm just waiting for the next doctor. Not too impressed with Matt Smith.
    Too bad Benedict Cumberbatch didn't take the role as the next Dr after Tennant and went for Sherlock instead.
    Cumberbatch would of been one hell of a Dr in my opinion.

    Matt Smith just seems to have the problem that half of his writing in the previous season was written for David Tennant. No offense to Smith but... he's not that good of an actor to pull something off. Tennant in my eyes just had this uncanny ability of deep joy and sadness in the same moment, a lot of hope and fear for humans (his apparent favourite race... seeing as they get to the end of the world, nestled next to black holes and whereas else the future generations seem adaptive) and I just liked Tennant. He's a fantastic actor and brought a lot to the role. He portrayed it with a lot of energy, and you could believe he was that nine hundred year old, many times reincarnated entity that had witnesses the birth and fall of empires. He wasn't all happy, you just need to be positive or else you're just despairing after being the (apparently last) of your kind and fighting the wars leading to it.

    Chris Eccelston was fun in the role but extremely emotional which I wasn't so keen on. The previous actors had a lot of compassion but it was more the bystander compassion of not getting fully invoved and carried away. Eccelston just over did it at times but heck he was fun, I was upset when he left after just one reason and probably if they had Tennant off the bat things wouldn't have gone so well. Eccelston was just very accessable really in his incarnation.

    Matt Smith I'm not keep on. I had the impression that Karen Gillan (sp name? not sure) as the assistant just completely left him in the tracks. I always was of the thought that if they had Tennant's doctor with Amy Pond (admittedly I like Donna more... she just fit with the doctor's personality so well, humour included. Rose was just dumb as a post and Martha was just like a mini doctor - pun intended - and nothing special. Plus their families annoyed me. Donna's grandfather and the doctor's interactions however I always loved) the serioes would have been incredible. Smith had a series of a fantastic assistant, great storylines and writing for him that seemed to be for Tennant he couldn't make work and didn't seem to know what he was doing.

    No offense to him, this Christmas special made me a little more optimistic for the coming series. The writing for his character got better to the point where you could actually watch it with him and not Amy and not just miss her character which was nice. I remember in the series the one episode centered more on Smith was painfully boring to watch (something to do with churches, grave robbing and strange things under the ground, right before the series finale) so that was nice. It still wasn't up to the "Runaway Bride" one in my mind (I'll admit to loving Catherine Tate in it. Given the dynamic she was perfect for the everyday quirkiness. The "usual" stuff just didn't phase her yet the emotional stuff did - "Silence in the Library" was an example of that and an exceptional two parter) but good. Anything but "lol Titanic in the sky" >.>

    So its worth watching. I can't remember her name but the woman singing was amazing as well. At least they have Smith's writing sorted it seems with this, and he seems to have worked out what he's doing rather than failing at copying Tennant's mannerisms.

    I'm not a huge fan of Matt Smith, Tenent was a lot better, I was really sad to see him go. Kara Gillan is really hot though, I love scots. I grew up on Doctor Who, my mom was a HUGE Tom Baker fan. I remember daleks scaring the heck out of me, now they're my favorite bad guy (master is a close second). Unfortunately as a yank I don't have the best access to this series, sometimes I have to wait an entire year for netflix, though I have discovered http://www.watch-doctor-who-online.com as a low-quality alternative when I feel I MUST HAVE WHO. (use in conjunction with clipnabber.com)

    My iPhone ring tone is the doctor who theme song.

    I can't watch it because I'm in America, and I don't have BBC America.

    Does anyone know where I can watch the Christmas Special?! Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol.
    It wasn't the worst episode ever...but more than a few headaches, and a truly disheartening lack of red headed companions makes it a very "meh" episode.

    ..I -love- the series! And the spinoff, Torchwood!
    Started watching the older Dr.Who episodes when I was 10 and well...been in love eversince.
    Even though I do have to join the chanting fanbase praising Tennant, The emotion he was able to convey through his facial expressions and eyes was just...
    Sweet lips, intoxicating
    Sultry eyes that stare, waiting
    To lure the hungry heart
    Into a deadly trap

    Tennant was a really good doctor no doubt, but im happy with Smith, he might end up being my fvourite yet, and i started watching Dr. Who in 2005, but ive gone back and seen most of the episodes since the appearance of the fifth doctor.

    I dont agree with you completely i must say, Matt smith plays a rather diffrent doctor, one who seems very vengeful and angry compared to Eccelston who was very happy, but at the same time quite down quickly when ever something bad happend, Tennant did one of the best jobs done to date, and with this we have to remember, half-way through season 4 tennant announced he whould not step down from the spotlight, so season 5 is written for Matt, tho, Russel T. Davies is no longer a writer for the new season which is probably what you're missing. Matt have had a enormous job ahead of him following Tennant, who by many Whovians have been called the best doctor to date, tho most people preffer 4th one, cant remember the actors name. Fifth one is the oldest doctor ive seen so far, I digress, Smith have had a rather big job ahead of him following tennant, and so far i must say he's not done abseloutely terrible, my favourite episode in s5 was probably the one with the angels as he really came to life as the doctor for me in that one. also, i really, really, really hate those weeping angels.

    Anyway, I think Matt can easily become a great doctor, but tennant is hard to top, still lets give him a chance shall we ?

    Question [TV] Doctor Who

    I just watched my first episode of Doctor Who (S1 EP1) with my father. It seemed really cheesy but I really like premise behind the show. Can anyone tell me that it gets better over time? (Figured this would be the place to ask since gamers love Sci-Fi shows )

    Thanks!
