"Doctor Who" returns with usual wit, depth

Post by SETIsLady » 04-16-2010 08:17 AM

Anyone else watching ?
"Doctor Who" might be the world's most perfect series because it never has to end. (Let's ignore the hiatus in the 1990s.)

On the air nonconsecutively since 1963, "Who" comes with a built-in reboot system: a lead whose alien properties allow him to regenerate his body (letting a new actor fill old shoes). So fans who know where to look already will be aware of the Doctor's latest incarnation: He has gone from plucky-yet-worldly-wise David Tennant to bow-tie-wearing goof Matt Smith, who debuts Sunday on BBC America.

Hi SETIsLady. :)

Unfortunately, I have not seen any of the episodes of this incarnation of the good Doctor, yet.

I was a big fan of Tom Baker as the Fourth "Doctor Who" in the 1970's. Those shows were thrilling and fun.

I will make a point to check out the current series. I am sure it is terrific.

great new start for a new doctor! I thought the first episode was a little lame early on (the doctor figuring out what food he like and didn't like), but wow, did the episode take off!

Looking forward to more great doctor who episodes with Matt Smith!
