So.. today marked the start of the newest series of Doctor Who, the buzz of which had pretty much died out of me ages ago, but never-the-less it was pretty impossible to not know of the oncoming event that was publisied pretty much during every break between programmes.
I think it's simple enough to say it's just as fun as the last season was; some of the teasers for the season do look a little iffy, but the first episode was in my opinion, very good, it was fun, innocent and provided some very nice light entertainment.
I loved the planet Zovirax gag, though sadly it's a joke that will be rendered pretty much confusing when people forget the advert!
As for the episode itself it was a fairly cute introductory episode, though refreshingly different to Rose's introduction, as I've mentioned previously the show; for me is a nice bit of entertainment; if I wanted science fiction I'd go watch some Firefly, or perhaps even Battlestar, Doctor Who doesn't fit into science fiction, I watch it for fun, for some good British programming (which has currently appeared to die down, though I thought The Yellow House was pretty good)
The story was as obscure as expected an old vampire like woman (reminding me too much of the similar old lady in the Doublemeat Palace) being chased by some large rhinoceros dudes, who I think were fairly cute, and were operated with animatronics!! Woo!
So.. um... yeah that's pretty much all I have to say, it's getting late, and I wanna sleep, so I'll end on this shot from the episode.
Also, for anyone living under a rock, you may also have not seen this;
Now, I don't know about you guys, but I'm getting pretty excited at how promising it is looking.

I must say I really liked the episode of Doctor Who, even though from the thing at the end of the christmas one I thought ugh it looks like poo :P
I loved the Zovirax thing too, although I must agree, I'm sure that advert hasn't been on for a while, but hey what would I know :P.
WEIRDO: Heh yeah, I felt the same thing watching the teaser for the series after confidential... just looks sorta poo; then again, there will always be crap episodes in shows, I'm sure even Buffy has a couple of those... firefly doesn't of course :P
But no, I do believe that advert is at least 5 years old now or something O_o
