The New Doctor Who (First Impressions)
As an early teenager, I was pretty much obsessed with Dr Who.
I would go to school in an old coat of Dad’s (or Mum’s iirc), pockets full of any kind of tool (read: junk) I could find in the shed, and I would wear the coat through thick or thin.
Seriously. I remember wearing it in Sports. And I distinctly remember the teacher laughing at me. Not in a nice way either.
So I’m at a loss to explain why I haven’t watched the new (I mean from Christopher Eccleston onwards) Dr Who.
The New Doctor Who episode went live tonight on iView.
It was everything I remember of the Dr Who as a kid (Tom Baker really). Crazy. Zany. A little bit more Crazy. Witty.
And now he references things like “Twitter” in conversation.
What really got me was how everything just kept on moving. All the time. Frenetic.
I’m hoping that the consequences of what happens at the end will come back to bite in a nice juicy way. Something involving the Master mayhaps?
Anyway, suffice to say, I’m now going to backtrack and watch the new series-es.
Dr Who is BACK!
