It's really hard to top David Tennant as Doctor Who, next to Tom Baker, he was my favorite.  The new guy, Matt Smith is a bit more of an oddball character, but he's growing on me, just not as much as David Tennant did.

I was a bit upset that Christopher Eccleston only did the show for one season. I liked him a lot so it took me a while to warm up to David Tennant. But, a few episodes in and it was like, "David Tennant is THE Doctor!" Matt Smith not so much. He is just OK for me. And I do. not. like his companion. Rory is the only redeeming thing so far. I used to never miss an episode, but now I can take it or leave it.

Loved CE, Tennant literally had me at 'Hello.'  (Look it up, it was his first word as Ten.)  The only redeeming character now for me is Rory.  I've waited all this time to warm up to Matt Smith and it's not happening, now or ever.  When Rory's gone I don't know what reason I'll find to watch.  The next companion must be awesome...how will he/she ever equal Rory? 

None of Eleven's adventures are on my shelves.  I've not spent a cent on any of them, why would I?  I could care less.  It's taken me all this time to overcome my disappointment that David Tennant didn't get to have any adventures with Alex Kingston.  That bit annoyed me for months. 

Matt Smith's costume is ridiculous because his trousers are too short.  A man's socks should never be seen under any circumstances while he's wearing them.  Mankles are unattractive and should be forbidden by law.  <shudder>  Unsightly.:cryingsmiley:

PeridotEyes,

I could not agree with you more!

They desperately need to replace Matt Smith, but I wouldn't even begin to know who to replace him with... unless Christopher Eccleston or David Tenant wanted to come back, which they don't and wouldn't work anyway.

I really do miss that show and its frustrating to no longer be able to enjoy it do to bad casting. Arrrg.:u055a:

I miss the show, but it hasn't felt the same for me for a while :(Well with every actor they bring something different and I think Matt Smith's Dr is great but I do miss David Tennant as well.  Growing up in the 60's I do remember the original Dr Who.

I think why some people are missing the DT's Dr's is also due to the fact that the show has new writters and that Steven Moffit who wrote the original Angel story when Tennant did it is now having more input to the show as he's taken over from Russell T Davis.  I perfer Davis approach but I'm not saying I don't like Moffet approach to the show either.

I'm wondering my self that the recent Dr Who's are not up to statch or whether it's due to every story they can think of has been done.  I love the daleks but there can only be so many stories about them before one gets bored. 

I think this is the reason why the BBC is going spilt the shows up and also due to costs, because it's not a cheap show to produce and make.

I love the odd ball thing in Smith's Dr.  He looks a bit strange but he can't help the way he looks.  I think he has captures Who brillently.

Matt captures a bit of the eccentricity of Patrick Troughton, my favourite doctor of all time, but with the steel core, which doesn't often show itself.

I was captivated in his first appearance, when his eyes went cold and he said "run"

I don't think it matters which Doctor it is, they all seem to do alot of running!

Well your in for a real treat regarding Asylum of the Daleks but some where in the story it started to make me think of the episode of Lexx Bad Carrot  When  you see it you'll know what I mean.

I didn't even know it was going to be on last night until I was switching channels, saw a Dr. Who marathon was on and looked ahead and it said premier, so I taped it and watched it last night. It was a good spin on the Daleks and how one kept her humanity, I figured something was up and wasn't suprised to find out she was a dalek. But now that they have the Doctor erased from their memory banks, is he safe from them?

This is about the Dr's New Campian, the same actress who was a dalerk. Interesting read. I will miss Karen's character, I really like her.
