The Cosmic Wanderer Returns
New 'Who' has own bag of tricks
By Chris Kocher Gannett News Service / Edited & abridged by Yours Truly

Look out, America: The Doctor is ready to make house calls again.

No, this isn't some new wrinkle in your HMO coverage. This is THE Doctor, legendary Time Lord hero of the British science-fiction television series "Doctor Who."
You may think you know the original "Doctor Who" from its many years on public TV - an eccentric curly-haired alien in a floppy hat and overlong scarf, an undertone of campiness, and production values on a par with the original "Star Trek."

Well, you can forget all that. The new "Doctor Who" brings the series into the new millennium, which means top-notch special effects and mature writing chock-full of delights that adults and kids can both enjoy.

The core of the story remains the same: The Doctor is a cosmic wanderer who travels through time and space in the TARDIS, a bigger-on-the-inside spaceship that's disguised as a blue British police box. Along the way, he becomes embroiled in all manner of alien invasions and other nefarious goings-on. Because he relies on his wits, not muscle or guns, the Doctor is very unlike most sci-fi protagonists.
The new series of "Doctor Who" features respected British actor Christopher Eccleston ... With Eccleston's portrayal, gone are the pseudo-Edwardian attitudes & dress sense that have defined the character in the past. This Doctor can be dark and brooding, a working-class bloke in a leather jacket who bears the psychological scars of a great Time War... episodes build on each other to become a whirlwind trip: Earth's last day in the far future, ghost-hunting with Charles Dickens, fighting an alien takeover of the British government, and a confrontation with the ruthless robotic Daleks...

For good old-fashioned escapism - something that makes you laugh, cry and think - "Doctor Who" is the trip of a lifetime. Here's hoping audiences on this side of the Atlantic will think so, too.

"Doctor Who"
9 p.m. ET Fridays on Sci Fi Channel
beginning with a two-hour premiere March 17

You're in for a treat :)

Following Dr.Who from childhood I have to say Christopher Eccleston has to be the best DR. ever. This is one great new series and really does bring the show into the millennium. As for Billy Piper she has to be the sexiest smartest assistant yet in the show.
