    Was going to make this thread last night. Glad someone did

    It was fantastic. Everyone I know has been all 'the new guy will be rubbish' but I knew he wouldn't be. With Stephen Moffat as the head writer it could never be anything but brilliant. Can't wait for the rest of it.

    You stole the words from my mouth Jack! The new series is going to be awesome.

    I massively enjoyed the episode and am now greatly looking forward to the upcoming season.

    In fact, there were only 3 moments where any kind of negative thought entered my head.

    "Oh, I don't care for that new silver logo."

    "Ah yes, more Daleks this season."

    "Ah yes, more Cybermen this season."

    It's not that you can't use Daleks and Cybermen well, and hopefully they wwill ... it's that unfortunately they usually don't, and they just turn them into stormtroopers (generic enemy footsoldiers); but yes, I also realize that they pretty much have to use Daleks every season because of complications with who actually owns the right to them.

    Those are relatively nit-picky though, and after seeing the episode I am now pretty psyched for the new season.

    "Oh, Skycake. Why are you so delicious?"

    I've got to agree with the Daleks and Cybermen thing. They always get used because of their iconic status and it obviously gets all the kiddies excited and all the media interested. But as a result of them being used so much they start to lose a bit of their 'specialness'. It's just one of those things really. Although I've got to say with Stephen Moffat as head writer I have total faith that they will be given the story they deserve this series to be honest. I have ultimate respect for that man!

    I actually love the new logo, I thought the way they made the 'D' and 'W' look like the TARDIS was genius haha.

    Yay!!! I loved the new episode!
    The guy on the computer was hilarious but VERY awkward with my parents watching!
    I finally got a new PS3, so I should be fairly active around here again! I missed you all!

    What? Did it remind you of something? Something... you've done?

    I like the new doctor, hes like an action hero now. You never saw David Tennant hanging out of a broken TARDIS in the skies, smashing a ladder of a fire engine through a hospital window and talking to the worlds greatest people through a pervert's labtop!

    This season will be awesome!

    I loved it I really loved Tennant as the Doctor but I think that this Matt guy will be good. Some of my favourite episodes have been written by Moffat so I've got high hopes. And I'm excited that it is every week, no more one off specials and then having to wait 3 months for the next episode. OOOOeeeeeOOOOOOO

    I know. We had to wait ages all year long for a freakin episode! And they were crap!

    This series, I think, is going to be amazing. To be honest, I didn't have high hopes for it because, frankly, the fourth series with Tennant was absolute crap. They got far too carried away with their silly plotline, and Catherine Tate just doesn't belong in a show like Doctor Who. I'm very glad they noticed all these flaws, and by the looks of things they seem to have fixed them. I already love the humour (Yes, THAT bit is very funny indeed. "Oh yeah, by the way, delete your internet history.") I think it is genius, and a great departure from the last few specials of the Tennant era, when the Doctor got all mopey for no reason. I just hope this trend of awesome continues!

    The new series is okay, but I would never expect anything to be better than series 2 with Tennant (David's first series) in it.
    Also, the aliens look a lot more low budget...But I knew they were tight on money at the time anyway.

    I thought the episode was a bit rushed (Even though the show is now 65 minutes long) and fast for me. Half the time I couldn't understand what they were saying!! :/

    I thought it was great! Apart from I hate the new logo;



    It just doesn't look right to me....

    Also I found some parts were trying to be funny too much but just weren't. Like when he was eating all the food and the fish fingers and custard... *yawn*.... Over with the complaints and now to the good points:

    I love the new TARDIS and screwdriver, they look more high tech and pure awesomeness. With the exception of those parts that were trying to be funny, it was really funny.


  16. Thanks!

    Totally agree with the logo, the old one to me was much better.

    I must agree wih you on this one. There didn't really seem to be much of a point to that scene, and as you said, It was trying too hard to be funny.

    I love the new theme tune! It's a faster version of the original, and it really does sound great!

    Hey what about the runaway bride

    Can't wait for this to air in Australia. April 18 on my calender. I like that logo, it's a bit more retro like the TARDIS is.

    I did enjoy the new episode, Matt seems to be David Tennant without the emotional baggage that his version of the doctor had near the end.
